products I love

The beauty industry is full of products with expensive marketing designed to keep us in a perpetual cycle of reliance so we are repeat purchasers, so let's give chemical sh*t storms and green washing the middle finger 🖕 and fill our homes with genuinely natural and effective products that help - not harm.

 

It's not enough just to see the words "eco-friendly" or "natural" on the label these days. I want clean ingredients that don't cost the earth and a product that does what it says it will do - from what I put on my skin, to what I eat and what products I use at home. I've done the research and tried loads of products to be able to put together some of my faves below to help get you started. Click on links to open.

 

Don't forget - always carefully patch test new products first.
