Tales from a Lip Balm Queen 👑

Other than my hand sanitiser, my lip balm is my most used product. My loyal lip balms go everywhere with me; I have one in my bag, car and bedside table. It took me years of searching, trialling and testing to find what works best for me and my smoochers. Many a handbag, pocket and car cupholder have resulted in melted lip balm sacrifices. I even once tried to revive one in the freezer (p.s it didn't work :().

Do you Hibernate in Winter?

Winter can be a difficult time of year to look after yourself, especially if you live in the colder parts of the world. It's easy to forget that there is still so much beauty and wellness to be found outdoors. We just have to wrap up warm and explore!

Find a Simple Skin Routine for Your Skin Type

The Art of Aging & Wrinkles

I'm 35 years old, I spent my entire childhood in the strong Aotearoa sun and during a time where sunblock was second to a 'protective' tan. My skin has been regenerating for quite a while and since the age of 25, it began to thin and lose its elasticity. I've...

The Beauty of Simple Skincare

Shop Online, Skip The Malls & Support Local

Yesterday I drove to my closest mall, spent 15 minutes driving in circles to find a carpark. I walked from the gorgeous hot and sunny day into a cold and fluorescent lit building that was packed with people. I stopped, heard the blaring carols, glanced at the stressed crowd and walked back to...

Which Skincare You Buy Matters But Why?

One of the most searched terms on Google is 'natural skincare'. Why? Because most of us have been on a journey of what I'd like to call 'consumer awakening'. More and more people are realising that their actions, particularly what they buy and who they buy from matters.  'Green Washing'...

Hand Massage At Home

I have a confession to make; I'm 35 and I've never looked after my hands before. I never saw the point, my skin has always been on the oily side and my job involves using my computer all-day. I'm more at risk for RSI than cracked or dry hands.  That...

My Sensitive Skin Journey So-Far (And all I've learnt)

I have sensitive skin. What does this mean? Well for me it means that my skin has an inflammatory response to almost everything I put on it.
