Favourite Product:

Since using Ekia’s Crème Originelle I have had so many people comment on how clear and refreshed my skin is looking and I can feel a difference myself. Natura Siberica’s Energizing and Protective Shampoo and Conditioner set makes my hair feel soft, shiny and healthy – especially after day at the beach and in the sun.

Favourite Product:

Saaf’s Super Hydrating Body Balm has saved my skin – and it’s the only product my 5 year old son will have on his body. It’s really helped his eczema and makes the little guy (and me) smell wonderful.

Favourite Product:

A blend of Naturtint Permanent 5N & 5C. Having had salon colour treatments all my life, I was reluctant to try a home hair colour when I first joined. However with Kerry’s expert advice I’ve been able to achieve the same professional finish with Naturtint. Everyone comments on how healthy my hair looks and I’m proud to say it’s Naturtint. I still visit a salon – but now I take Naturtint with me.

Favourite Product:

Naturtint’s Anti-Ageing CC Cream alongside Saaf’s Enriching Hair Oil – both essential beauty cabinet products. CC Cream prolongs the life of my hair colour and addresses the main signs of hair ageing whilst Saaf’s Hair Oil is an absolute miracle product. So versatile, I use it as a pre-wash treatment, an intensive overnight treatment or as a smoothing finishing product – it breathes life in to even the most damaged hair.
