ilike Organic Skincare comes to the TIA shop

Is a Solution for:
Dull Skin, Oily Skin, Dry Skin
January 24, 2012 Reviewed by Marta 5 Comments
It was a Hungarian brand called ilike Organic Skincare that made me realize that not all botanicals are equal. Ilike’s selection of extracts makes many other natural products look as special as a bouquet bought at a corner deli. They are grown organically in soil that draws on Hungary’s thermal hot springs and then handpicked before making their way into serums, masks, lotions and cleansers. After sampling some of them over the past year or, I am delighted to bring them to the TIA shop.

For example, ilike’s Organic Wrinkle Eliminator Serum ($92 in the TIA shop) has Virginia creeper, a plant that has an unusually high amount of chlorophyll. The formula also lists chlorophyll separately and, as well as being antioxidant, it helps control sebum so is useful for oily, breakout prone skin.

Stonecrop is one of ilike’s signature ingredients. According to Polish researchers it has been found to contain quercetin, an antioixdiant that may be more powerful than resveratol. Stonecrop also seems to have a skin brightening effect. It’s in the Whipped Moisturizer ($66 in the TIA shop), which has a super light texture and is as green as a bud.

Simple oils are a trend this year and so its appropriate to get to know ilike’s Yarrow Oil ($48 in the TIA shop), which is an anti-inflammatory that also eliminates toxins. Another ilike oil is Q10 Serum ($88 in the TIA shop), formulated for dry skin (it can also be used to revitalize finger nails or rubbed into split ends).  It has evening primrose oil and Hungarian paprika (which, believe it or not, has more vitamin C by weight than lemon juice).

The Seven Herb Mask ($48 in the TIA shop) also majors on yarrow and stonecrop, as well as aloe, coltsfoot and plantain. Grapeseed Cleansing Milk ($48) is, for ilike, a relatively simple formula with grapeseed and mandarin oils.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced i-lee-ke.

    Unfortunately, Firefly, not many other people agreed with you and as they weren't selling we had to discontinue them.

    I would love to try their products but why are you no longer carrying them?

    This sounds like a great line, especially the wrinkle eliminator serum...I tend to have combination skin so I like the idea of something a little lighter and a lot less expensive than the serum I'm currently using!

    This stonecrop whipped moisturizer seems similar to the Eminence Organics product that my aesthetician had used on me and which I had planned to purchase in the future. It would be a privilege to try "ilike organic" and make it another TIA recommended product if it passes the test in brightening my skin and making the melasma less noticeable.

    The Stonecrop Whipped Moisturizer sounds wonderful! I'd love to try this product & report my experience back to TIA!
