Shira has been developing innovative skin care treatments for beauty professionals since 1990, specializing in products that feature the finest natural /organic ingredients as well as advanced cosmeceuticals.
Their debut product line, Solar Energy, was one of the first collections in the USA to incorporate rare minerals and trace mineral sourced from the Dead Sea.  The therapeutic aspect of the collection, which included mud masks and mineral bath salts, quickly became popular with estheticians and gave early indication ofShira’s emphasis on innovation.
Shira built upon their initial success in the spa channel by adding specialized collections (Seaweed, Chamomile, Omega-3, and Glycolic Acid) that continued to resonate with spa professionals – enabling them to treat a variety of skin types and conditions for both face and body, while achieving outstanding results.
Today,Shira products are sold in 2000 spas worldwide, and have become increasingly popular with dermatologists and beauty schools. They continue to stress advanced technologies and diversity in their product development strategy – recently launching an anti-aging line rich in polypeptides (Boto-Derm) and a sumptuous, all natural skin care line (Shir-Organic) that sets new standards of excellence in performance and packaging for organic skin care brands.

I have been using three products from the Shira line. The first one that I tried and have become hooked on is Shira Shir-Radience Corrective Rx Balancing Cleanser for oily, large pore & acne prone skin. I have struggled with acne my entire life. As far back as I can remember I have struggled. When I was younger it was horrible through jr high school but even not as an adult my skin is never truly clear. When I saw Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx Balancing Cleanser of course I was eager to try it right away.

I swear I noticed a difference after using this for only a day. I noticed my skin was clean and fresh after washing it and not dry or peeling at all. After using it morning and night for a week I noticed my pores seem more clear. I don't have as many big dark looking pores and my face was not as oily as normal. 

This Shira Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx cleanser smells so good too. I was surprised because most products similar to this have an overpowering medicinal smell.

Shir-Radiance Balancing Cleanser is made of natural ingredience. The active ingredients are Cucumber, Rosemary, Peppermint, Horsetail, Calendula, Goldenseal, Spirulina, Burdock Root, Papaya and Arnica Extracts, Lemon Lime, Lemongrass, Lavender, Orange & Peppermint Essential Oils. This cleanser has a citrus scent and has a bit of a green tint. It is very, very gentle on your skin and feels like a day at the spa. Thepump bottle makes it so simple to use. I just leave the bottle on my shelf near my shower so I can reach it from both my shower or my sink. Just pump it into your hand, rub it around and wash your face. Voila !!! Perfect, simple and clean. 

Every other day or so I feel like I need to wash my face with a product that has a bit of a scrub to it. I picked Shira Shir-Organic Pure Coconut Oatmeal Cleanser to do the job. This is a fantastic cleanser with a perfect amount of grittiness to it. It contains Jojoba beads and Oatmeal which aid in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, while facilitating penetration of coconut oil into the deeper layers of the skin, strengthening underlying tissue.

When I use this cleanser I can feel my face tingle a bit as I wash. This faint tingle makes me feel like it is doing the job. It has a very relaxing, soft, oatmeal, coconut scent to it.  There is no irritation, burning or dryness with using this product. 

I absolutely love it and recommend grabbing some for yourself and some for a friend or family member. It makes an awesome holiday gift to place in a basket of goodies. Stuff a bottle of this in your daughter or wives stocking and I assure you they will adore it.

Coconut is a tropical fruit rich in vitamins. Its molecular structure allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture. Coconut is also a great 


solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. Another great natural ingredient used for calming, soothing, and cleansing skin is Oatmeal. Oats are filled with natural cleansers (called saponins) that gently remove dirt and oil from the pores while providing nourishment to the skin. Thiscleanser, infused with all natural Jojoba beads, offers an ideal gentle exfoliation while providing the moisturizing qualities of jojoba oil.


Shira Shir-Organics Pure Pineapple Papaya Enzyme Peel is a miracle in a jar. It smells sooooo yummy and minimizes enlarged pores. This peel will normalize oil gland activity and prevent accumulation of impurities. 

I have noticed my pores appear smaller and my skin looks more radiant. Just put a nice layer of this all over your face and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Once it has has time to work its magic rub softly in small circles to lightly peel and sluff away the product. Then rinse your face making sure to wash off any extra that might be left behind. 

I have always loved a good peel. It makes me feel like I am starting fresh and truly cleaning off dead skin, yucky dirt and oils. You are going to love this peel.

Pineapple and Papaya are saturated with vitamins and enzymes that soften and heal the skin. The enzymes in these fruits fight free-radical damage and are known to reduce age spots and fine lines, leaving the skin supple. They also cleanse the skin by dissolving dead cells from the skin's surface. The combination of Papain and Bromelain work synergistically to help remove dead skin cells.

Our Shir-Organic Pure Pineapple Papaya Enzyme Peel will thoroughly exfoliate the skin surface, leaving a smooth, radiant, and flawless complexion. Shira Organic skin care products represent the finest all natural and organic anti-aging formulations available today.
