INSIDER SCOOP | FOUNDER BEAUTY KITS
If you’re a little bit like us, we just love to know what’s in everyone elses handbags. Specifically, which clean and natural skincare products make it into other people's on-the-go makeup kits! With so many incredible natural products out there, knowing where to begin can be overwhelming. Sometimes the best place to start is with recommendations from friends and family.
And because we consider you family and to satisfy the voyeur in us all, we asked our founding kin to reveal their clean-beauty handbag essentials. Think of this as a personal recommendation from three friends who’ve tried it all, know exactly what they like, and have whittled their selection down to the absolute must-haves.
Mukti Organics Cacao Vanilla Lip Butter | A great lip balm and it really does feel like a indulgence. I love the feel and smell and that I can use it by itself, under or over lipstick.
Inika Certified Organic BB Cream | It’s so easy to smooth on quickly and I love that it has hyaluronic acid and sun protection. Being a busy mum I sometimes don’t have time to put makeup on in the mornings but I know I always have this BB in my bag.
Kjaer Weis Mascara (black) | This is just a great pick-me-up. I like to accentuate my eyes and I always feel finished wearing this mascara.
Organic Island Paw Paw Lip Salve | I love to keep a lip balm or two in my bag, mainly because I am a mum of two girls and we are always on the go and inevitably between weekend sports, school runs and cold nights - one of us will have dry lips.
Erica Brooke Deodorant Creme Neroli + Vanilla | I have an assortment of mini deodorants in my car, desk and bags. At the moment I am on Erica Brooke Neroli - that smell is just so good!
Edible Beauty No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist | There is nothing like on being on the-go all day and taking 30 seconds to spray a gorgeous smelling face mist is the perfect pick-me-up before stepping out of the car. It is heaven and can reset your whole mood. With this mist, my skin always feels beautifully hydrated, even towards the end of the day.
Inika Certified Organic Lip and Cheek Cream | It gives me an instant youthful flush on the cheeks and a pretty stain on the lips…if I am really stuck I have been known to use this as eyeshadow lightly too.
MV Organic Skincare Hand Rescue | I love this smell, the mandarin and rose is so unique and my hands soak it up in an instant - I keep a full sized version at home and a 70ml in my hand bag to reach for as a way of mindful self-care, instead of defaulting to my phone.
One Seed ‘Solitude Eau De Cologne | warm, flirty, complicated and grounded ~ this perfume is all the things I aspire to!
