Outside work I like to: “walk with our dogs around the vineyards close to our home in Spain, feed our peacocks (we had babies this year!) and swim at my favourite local beach”.
My favourite products are: Facial Cleanser, “I love the way if decongests and moisturises my skin. The scent also gives me the perfect start and end to my day. I couldn’t live without the Skin Solve with Calendula. This is the first product I used on my family to soothe and solve my young daughter’s eczema”

Outside work I like to: “work on our old farmhouse, ride my Harley Davidson, restore classic motorcycles, walk and swim”
My favourite products: Soothing Muscle Balm “this product works brilliantly to soothe aching muscles at the end of a busy day working in the garden or long-distance motorcycle riding. I also love the Skin Solve with Calendula, which I use to soothe dry skin and all the cuts and scratches I get in the garage and garden!”

My favourite products: Rose and Vanilla Face Oil, which I think of as my skin essence. Formulated to stimulate skin cell renewal, with delicate notes of rose and vanilla, this concentrated facial oil will moisturise your face with only a few drops!
Outside work I like to walk my Dachshund Darcey on our local Cornish beaches.
