Keeping focussed 13th April 2017 – Posted in: Lifestyle, Organic, Skincare

It’s been a while since the last blog post, sorry! Keeping up with newsletters, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for both retail customers and our Partners is proving a bit challenging mentally and I have to admit to losing focus in several areas. Post-Easter I promise to get back on track and in the meantime thought a reminder of what our Rather Lovely focus is would be a useful Easter tea or coffee-time read. So, sit back, relax and transport yourself back to a time when simple things were a pleasure, hot cross buns were only in the shops for a few days around Easter and just one Easter egg was considered a treat.

I’ve been producing skincare products in a very simple way for over 20 years – firstly as an aromatherapist and since 2003 as a homeopath. It’s very easy to get caught up in the hype of new ingredients, the latest trends and clever digital marketing and I often have to remind myself that none of these things make for better skincare. At Rather Lovely we celebrate natural, organic, effective products, handmade in England with traditional time-honoured ingredients which have been proven safe and beneficial for even the most sensitive skin. We don’t compete with the new kids on the block because we value what we know works.

So, with the long holiday weekend coming up and the weather set fair (although a little chilly) I, like many others, will make the most of getting outside in the garden. Rather Lovely products are inspired by nature and ‘powered’ by natural ingredients and our hand creams make fabulous gifts for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Hard working hands deserve a treat at any time of year but especially when they have spent time immersed in the soil. Packaged in airless tubes which keep the natural, organic oils and essential oils fresh and vital, they are perfect for carrying around in a handbag and very economical in use. Love Herbal has the fresh, balsam scent of rosemary, clary sage, thyme and lavender and Love Citrus has an uplifting, zingy aroma. Love Floral is flowery but not cloying and Love Lavender is reassuringly traditional. All are naturally fragranced with pure essential oils which balance and help regenerate the skin but for anyone with skin sensitivities unfragranced Love Purity is the perfect choice.

Whatever you do this weekend, take the time to live it well. x
