Brand Focus: Edible Beauty

Hello beauties,

You all know I’ve been loving organic beauty products, but as a beauty blogger I find it hard to commit to just organic beauty. That’s where Anna from Edible Beauty comes in. Anna is a qualified naturopath and created the beautiful and organic skincare brand, Edible Beauty. Anna was a realist when we chatted, she didn’t expect me to use the range or organic beauty products exclusively. She understands the challenges that everyone faces when making the transition to organic beauty and she recommends taking small steps and slowly transitioning organic products into your regime. Here’s a few products I’d tried from the brand, what I’ve loved, liked and any misses.

Most of us are more educated now and go for a gentler options such as chemical exfoliants or the newer powder exfoliants. Powder exfoliants tend to have finer grains, natural and need to be activated with water.
