Who are we
We are Tonic Skin Care, an online skin care and wellness store focused on providing professional advice and help to our customers. Skin care can be confusing and advice can be conflicting on what is best for your skin health. We are here to advise and educate on all skin care related topics and dispel any myths along the way! We have a holistic approach to skin care which is why we also recommend some specially selected wellness product ranges also.
Back in 2003 I had graduated from Queen's University Belfast with a Master of Pharmacy degree. After 5 years of study I had moved to Derry to work as a community Pharmacist in 2004. Along with my husband Adrian we had purchased a Pharmacy in 2007. Becoming a pharmacist was a way of combining my love of science with my compassion for helping people, this was further developed through my love of skin care. I had introduced skin care ranges to our Pharmacy which opened opportunities for me to consult patients on their skin care and skin concerns.
Skincare remains one of my passions and this led me to complete a diploma in dermatology in clinical practice in 2020 and also diploma in cosmetic science in 2022.
"We believe that you have the right to look and feel your best.
We want you to gain confidence in your skin and feel a little better in yourself.
We feel that high quality products should be accessible to everyone and by using simple but effective skincare products for their skin type and needs, it can improve their skin health and self care."
How can we help?
Understanding how the skin functions & how the ingredients used in skin care products can make a difference to someone really interests me. Using the right products can make a person feel (and look!) great.
I have always enjoyed providing skin care consultations in store and now we have the capability to provide consultations online which is something I am really happy about! Look forward to seeing you soon!
