As featured in the image above, the following are my favourite self-nurturing, skin-loving, lust & must haves that I’ll be preening myself with on the 27th February. Find out why below …
1. LOVE YOUR SKIN
LIVE NATIVE essential earth exfoliating cleanser with chamomile : I think this would have to be my favourite product for helping to bring about a clean and clear complexion. It’s not so much an exfoliant, but more so an everyday cleanser that effectively helps to cleanse the skin like you’ve never experienced before, whilst also leaving skin super soft and hydrated. > view product
BE GENKI serene face mist : This hydrating organic mist is my current favourite from the Be genki mist collection. It soothes sensitive skin, reduces redness and irritation, and has rejuvenating properties that help to stimulate the growth of healthy new cells, whilst the scent of neroli eases any stress that might pop up during the day. What more could a girl wish for? > view product
MOROCCAN NATURAL prickly pear seed oil : ok … so we have so many beautiful skin elixirs to choose from with the beautiful brands that we represent, so it was ever so hard to choose one as I do love all of them, but … I have to say that my current favourite is the prickly pear seed oil. My pores literally disappear after using it for a week, and my overall complexion looks soft, smooth, bright and 10 years younger. > view product
2. FRESH SPARKLY SMILE
RIDDELLS CREEK minty toothpaste and mouthwash : Let’s be straight … no-one likes stinky breath, and everyone loves clean, sparkly, fresh and tasty toothy pegs. After years of trialling bucket loads of tooth care products, and searching for a brand that had healthy ingredients, we jumped for joy when stumbling over Riddells Creek. Without a doubt, the most natural, effective and pleasant tasting organic toothpaste and mouthwash available. > view products
3. MAKE UP THAT HEALS THE SKIN
say what? how can makeup heal the skin? I know it sounds crazy, amazing and totally desirable all rolled in to one. This is what makes the HAUT range oh so special and in a league of it’s own. 100% vegan, mica-free, cruelty-free, this natural and organic range goes way beyond any other makeup brand that is currently on the market. I was literally gobsmacked after switching to HAUT well over a year ago, and I haven’t looked back. My basic essentials from the range include HAUT bb cream and bio-mineral foundation for complexion perfection. HAUT [he’s the one] loose tint for the most beautiful natural pink colour for cheeks. HAUT [martini] aloe cream tint for the perfect brows. HAUT [vintage] loose tint for sexy smokey birthday eyes. SUNCOAT natural black mascara for lengthy lashes. HAUT [love] lip gloss for kissable lips. > view products
4. BEAUTIFULLY MANICURED NAILS
INTENSAE 5-free [grace & nightclubbing] nail lacquers : You don’t honestly expect me to choose just one colour do you? Impossible! Nightclubbing is a bold violet creme, and my long-standing favourite for everyday wear to take you from day to night, whereas Grace is a pale metallic gold that looks fabulous for when I feel like a little extra shimmer. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to shout it from the rooftops … INTENSAE’s lacquers are insanely amazing for a toxin-free range. The colour is pigment-rich, easy to apply, and will remain chip-free for well over 10 days when you apply their protective top coat. > view products
AEOS biodynamic nail & cuticle oil : my personal opinion is that every handbag should have one of these in them. You’d be crazy not to! It works a treat at keeping your nails and cuticles looking well groomed, smooth and in top notch condition. And ridiculously easy and convenient to apply. No messy mistakes possible with the smart pen applicator. > view product
5. GIFT YOUR BODY THE SAME LOVE & CARE YOU DO TO YOUR FACE
BE GENKI sensual body oil : Hands down the one product that I wouldn’t and couldn’t live without. Keeps my body deliciously soft and smooth all year round. The base organic cold-pressed ingredients of sunflower oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil and rose hip oil are extremely nourishing, readily absorbed, and dramatically enhancing the appearance of the skin. Especially beneficial for dry skin, stretch marks and reducing the effect of sun damage. The blend of essential oils help to soften and balance the skin, whilst improving the skin’s elasticity. Heaven in a bottle! > view this product
6. QUICK AND EASY HAIR STYLING
JOSH ROSEBROOK styling cream : I have a confession to make … I’m not much of a hair-do kinda girl. I don’t own a hair dryer, and the thought of spending 10+ minutes in front of the mirror doing my hair would bore me to death. But, I don’t like going out looking like a scarecrow, especially when I’m getting all dolled up for a night out, so it’s Josh Rosebrook to the rescue. Not only are his hair care products the most pure, organic and natural on the market without a sulphate or naturally derived irritant in sight, they are absolutely amazingly and beautifully effective. Like you just had a date with your hairstylist. > view product
7. SCENT YOURSELF WITH A BEAUTIFUL & RARE NATURAL FRAGRANCE
PARFUMS LALUN la lune de miel : Nothing more to say than it was love at first sniff. Quite simply the most beautiful fragrance I’ve ever experienced. What makes them even more so beautiful is that they are created in very small batches from ingredients that Maggie [the maker] grows within her own biodynamic garden, or ethically wildcrafted from the nearby valley. These precious parfums are as rare as they are desirable. > view product

Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 16+ years of industry experience. If we are not 100% convinced that an ingredient is safe, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic and harmful ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
