3rd August 2016 Journal

The ALBUS & FLORA journey started high in the French Alps in the winter of 2013. I’m super excited to finally launch the brand in 2016 and can’t wait to find out what our adventures will bring and where our journey will take us!

Our journal pages, launching soon,  will celebrate today’s modern active lifestyles, they will offer a place to escape, to day-dream, to be inspired.  The ALBUS & FLORA journal will go beyond skin and sun care, and into all manner of topics from travel & adventure, lifestyle & wellness, beauty & style, food & health. You can expect to be greeted with hints and tips to support you every day, every season and through every adventure, large and small.

Here’s to shared adventures and great views!

  • Succulents & Alpine plants....ooooo how I love them! 🌿🌱🍃⠀⠀
⠀⠀
As I sit reviewing literally 100s of plant oils, extracts and actives for the new @albusandflora products, I am reminded just how amazing plants are in both their beauty and ability to heal, nourish, support and protect our skin. 😍 🌲🌿🥑🌾🍓🥬🥦🥥 🥒🍒🍅 Seeds, roots, bark, fruit, leaves and stems, they all have unique properties that the plant uses to protect itself and thrive.  It's such a joy to deepen my knowledge and explore synergistic blends of  ingredients from such diverse climates.  #lovewhatido #emailscanwait #botanicalingredients #greenbeautycommunity #naturalskincareproducts #plantpower #naturehastheanswers ⠀⠀

  • Sandy toes ....😍 The sun has popped out again and it has me day dreaming of long walks on the beach...obviously with my trusty @albusandflora UVA/UVB SPF 30 lip balm 😉 and a good broad spectrum SPF30 face & body screen.⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
Our Sheer Flora shade is great for a relaxed day at the beach (or a not so relaxed session at the gym), it offers the subtlest wash of colour (despite it looking dark in the bullet) that enhances natural lip colour and gives a lovely shine.  Your lips, only better! 💋💋💋✨✨⠀⠀

All shades available online - Use INSTAMAY to get FREE SHIPPING on all orders - Valid till midnight on the 31st May 2019.⠀⠀ Thanks to @equalitymama & Harrison for the 📷

  • What glorious sunny weather we are having!  Couldn't resist re-posting this sunny shot of Naked Flora SPF30 from one of our lovely partners @oxfordmillclothing, it makes me smile every time I look at it and reminds me that all the hard work is so worthwhile! ⠀☀️🌻☀️ Do visit them if you are near Castle Cary, Somerset..so many lovely things including @albusandflora balms ❤️💄❤️!⠀⠀

⠀⠀
I am in my incredibly happy place right now, reading research papers, researching ingredients and developing new products but it means other activities have slipped a little, social media being one.... time to get back on the social media 🐴😊🙌 ⠀⠀

  • Sorry for the lack of posts recently everyone! It’s been a hectic few months and sometimes we all need a little space (and break from social media) to get our creative juices flowing again! ⠀
⠀
I’m at my happiest analysing the latest research & skincare ingredients but the day to day pressures of building the brand have pulled me away recently from the heart of @albusandflora and what I love...finally I am back to being a skincare geek and it feels sooooo good to be surrounded by research papers and samples! ⠀
⠀
Can’t wait to get back in the lab and start turning creative ideas into real formulations ..⠀

  • Nude Flora has been such popular shade this month.  A subtle peachy nude that gives the lips a sheer yet neutral look.  Looks great on all skin tones, and particularly pretty on fair complexions & hair colours. ⁣A favourite with those who are not a fan of pink or red shades! ⁣⠀
