Your virtual personal skin guru, wherever you are!

Do you read blogs, magazines and watch videos from people reviewing and talking about their amazing facialist or skin guru?

Do you wish that you had access to a skin expert near where you live?

Don’t worry, we are here for you!

When we launched the Skin Essentials by Mariga skincare philosophy and products in Wexford in 2010, one of the most common reactions we got was “It’s so great to have this quality of skincare advice available in Wexford, everything seems to be usually only available in Dublin.” It was, and still is, quite novel to have clients travelling from Dublin, and all over the country, to Wexford for skin advice, rather than the other way around!

It soon became apparent that there was a demand for this level of quality skin assessment service in every corner of the country, we were getting so many questions about whether we were planning to open anywhere else, did we travel around the country hosting events or had we plans to sell our products through other outlets. We already had the Skin Essentials range of products available to buy one through our webshop, but people wanted personalised advice and support to go with them, just like our local clients and those able to travel to Wexford were getting.

It became obvious that the next step was to develop a way to offer consultations and advice to those who couldn’t get to our clinic in Wexford and in 2011 the Distance Assessment Programme was launched, a first in Ireland and the UK.
The Distance Assessment programme is a virtual consultation that we undertake with you in order to learn all about your skin and offer personal recommendations and support. Read details of how it works here.

Even now, seven years later, we remain the only skincare facility in the country offering Advanced Skin Analysis consultations using the international gold standard qualification of Pastiche Skin Analysis, the system learned and used by the best skin experts worldwide, and we still have clients travelling from every corner of Ireland for our consultations, advice, products and treatments.

Our online assessments have been taken by hundreds of happy clients and it continues to be a very in-demand service. Read testimonials here.

Why choose Skin Essentials? Here’s what makes us the best choice!

How is Skin Essentials by Mariga different from the rest?
-We treat the cause of skin problems, not just the symptoms, giving you real, lasting results.
-Consultation and analysis: we never sell any corrective or advanced products or services without skin assessment and consultation. As our products contain active ingredients which are proven to impact skin function at a cellular level, they need to be matched correctly to skin condition. We are currently the only professional salon brand insisting on this practice, and we believe this is why our results are out-performing others.
-We believe that homecare is the key to long-term skin management and our protocols are built around first rebuilding with home care then correcting with clinical treatments.
-We are passionate about protecting skin health and barrier integrity and our line is 100% fragrance, colour and sulphate free in line with our guiding principle of protective corneotherapy.

-We CARE about your skin, your progress and your results as much as you do. We are in this together!


Skin Analysis
Key to our successful skincare programmes is our comprehensive skin analysis and skin health coaching. This initial consultation is the starting point for all of our corrective homecare and clinical protocols. We are the only skincare experts in Ireland qualified in the international gold-standard Pastiche™ method of advanced skin analysis.
During this 90 minute appointment your skin will be analysed using the latest digital skin scanning technology and examined manually under diagnostic light sources. All contributing lifestyle factors will be examined and their role in your current skin condition are explored and explained with recommendations and education for correcting these going forward. These factors include medical history, nutrition, cosmetic history, genetics and other factors.
These factors will be assessed as a whole to determine your personalised skincare programme which will be outlined and written down for you. Notes on all arising issues will be provided, as well as a detailed recommendation chart including usage instructions and pricing.

Book your skin analysis now and begin your journey to great skin, for life.
