  • Adventures & dreams feed our imagination and ambitions.... ⠀
⠀
When I worked in elite sport, I remember sitting in on an athlete session with Steve Peters, advisor to many sports and author of many books, including the Chimp Paradox...he said set your goals high, higher than you think you can ever achieve, dream a little, believe, you never know how high you can fly...this just reminded me and is just as relevant to me now! Happy Friday and weekend everyone :-)⠀

  • All our balms are packed full of natural ingredients. Alpine Rose, Arctic cranberry & raspberry, seaberry, avocado, blackcurrant, jojoba, sunflower, olive and grape seed oils together with beeswax. ⠀
⠀
The beeswax acts as a natural emollient sealing moisture in and reducing trans-epidermal water loss, it sits on the surface and creates a good barrier against the elements. ⠀
⠀
Most lip balms do this - natural emollients include beeswax and butters, more chemical based ones use petrolatum, and many lip products contain petrolatum.  While petrolatum is a good emollient, and will sit on the surface and give a nice feel, it is a by product of the petrochemical industry and doesn't absorb into the lip so will not nourish, condition or improve the health of the lip long term.⠀
⠀
Oils on the other hand are absorbed deeply and over the next few weeks we will be featuring the properties of the oils we include and would love you to ask questions about ingredients and lip health!⠀

  • Autumn colours 😊🍁🍂
⠀
I love the change of the seasons (and the fact that Autumn means the ski season is just that little bit closer😉). Nature is such an inspiration for me personally and with @albusandflora and so calming in times of stress....reminding me that everything moves forward and change always presents an opportunity for growth.

  • We may be quickly sliding into Autumn but still time for a little sun by the sea.. ☀️ Thanks to @speakerjess for this shot, love the turquoise sea and little blue boat!!⠀
⠀
Remember as autumn comes and the seasons change our skin, particularly our lips are at risk of increased dehydration - particularly as you combine a drop in temperature & increase in wind outside with the turning on of central heating indoors.  Start adding a little face oil to your daily routine, if you don't already and keep your @albusandflora balm to hand. ⠀
⠀
The oils in our balms will be absorbed deeply to nourish and hydrate and can be used under or over your usual lip colour, as well as alone. Remember too that UVA rays are present every day through all seasons even when the sun doesn't shine so protect those lips from ageing and that dreaded cold sore!⠀

  • Exciting times! Our fabric for our limited edition make-up bags has arrived and we can’t wait to get started - due for launch early November 😊💕🙌⠀
