Gift Giving

The last few years have really hit home to me what I really value in my life. And I don't think I'm alone in that realisation. There's nothing like a lockdown to force you to take stock of who you are and what's really important to you.  This has impacted my life in every way possible and so when I was thinking about writing this piece about gift giving this year, I was reminded of what's most important to me. And thus, this year's gift ideas are based on those values. I hope you stay safe and really enjoy this Summer - it genuinely has a whole new shine to me this year.  

How To Save Bees

Bee populations are declining world wide (oddly enough they're actually rising in Aotearoa but that doesn't mean they don't still need our help). We need them to pollinate our flora and fauna and well-nourished bees are more capable of fending off diseases. So why are they dying and what can...

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....

The Science of Manuka Honey in Skincare

Some of our most frequently asked questions are unsurprisingly about one of our star ingredients; Manuka honey. So we thought we'd de-bunk a few myths and get the scientifically supported facts out there...

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

Our skin is unique to us, it changes with age, hormones, environment, seasons and stress. Looking after your skin can be tricky if you're not sure what it needs. Your skin type is one important indication of that and so we often use it as a way to determine how...

Are you Addicted to Your Lip Balm?

We've all heard our friend say, "I'm so addicted to my new lip balm", but can you actually be addicted to a lip balm or is it all just anecdotal evidence gone awry?  You might be surprised to find that science says... It really depends on a few factors; the...

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...

How to Redeem your Loyalty Points

Hand Health is Pivotal Right Now

One of the reasons we expanded our skincare range to Health & Wellness was because we want to create more homegrown options for Kiwi families. And as we've all come to realise, hand health is pivotal to defending your body from unwanted bacteria and viruses. 

The Beauty of Simple Skincare

I used to be someone who had a skincare routine that involved at least seven steps. Then I got into my mid-thirties and reevaluated what was and what wasn't working for my new skin. Because as we get older our skin changes dramatically.  Our hormones have a big part to...

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. Essentially the little protective barrier soldiers on my skin don't know the difference between safe substances and unsafe ones. My skin can develop itchy hives after...

As much as our skincare ranges are a large part of our ongoing brand, this new range has us excited for new reasons; we're able to help keep you and your family safe. That's not something we've been able to say or do before and it's a really great feeling....
