Our team tried the dr. hauschka range and this is what happened!

Organic, biodynamic, natural, developed by a chemist…the claims for Dr. Hauschka sound amazing but we know what you really want to know, does it actually work?

You’ve probably heard already about how scent is so closely linked with memory. Remember that perfume your mum wore as you were growing up? Or the smells from your grandparents’ house?

Should you change your skincare after summer?

So we’ve made it out of the 2018 and if you’re anything like me (and everyone that I know) December involved being insanely busy whilst getting merry in the evening more nights than not.

If you’re anything like me, you’re sick of lamenting the cold winter from under 10 layers of blankets and endless cups of tea. It’s almost unfair that winter has to last for a whole season, with the only relief coming in the forms of heaters, snuggling up inside or soaking in a steaming bath tub. […]

Liana’s madara oil-to-milk scrub review

Liana’s madara oil-to-milk scrub review

The Madara Oil-To-Milk Scrub is described as an oil based cleanser that softens and renews skin, without stripping away its natural moisture. Once applied, the formula melts into a delicate milk, rinsing off to reveal smoother and brighter skin. I will admit, when I first squeezed the product onto my palm, it did come out […]

When the eye meets the nose. Olfactive Studio was created by Celine Verleure in September 2011.
