What We Use: Anastasiya

Our customer Service Manager Anastasiya is not only breathtakingly beautiful IRL*, she's also mind-bogglingly photogenic (woe is us (me), who look stunned and vacant whenever a camera is in the vicinity). What's more, Ana is soon to become the ultimate yummy mummy - a babe with a babe (and we can't wait to be acquainted with our littlest CB mascot). Here's how she's keeping her (newly) parched skin feeling comfortably nourished and looking as blooming as she is.

Gwyneth Paltrow loves Hydrating Floral Essence

Gwyneth may have 'consciously uncoupled' from Chris Martin, but her affection for all-natural skin care shows no sign of following suit

What We Use: Samantha

Our Digital Marketing Manager Samantha is cool as the Cucumber Gel Mask she swears by... The go-to girl for all of team CB's most-complicated excel questions ("Er... how do I add up this column?"), she's also in-the-know about the next big things in beauty, fashion, footwear... sample sales! Our dwindling bank balances, and new-found Matcha Latte love are both her fault (and we adore her for it).

What's the Story? Moringa (Glory)

Ingredient focus

What's the Story? Moringa (Glory)

The star ingredient of two of our most recent launches, moringa is extracted from 'Moringa Oleifera' - a species of tree native to Africa and northern parts of India, where its flowers, leaves, roots, bark, seeds and sap are used in cooking, skin care, hair care, medicine... you name it. {Emma Hardie} and {Aduna} have tapped into its myriad health and beauty benefits - harnessing its high levels of amino acids, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and antibacterial agents to help cleanse your system and enhance your skin's resilience and radiance.

Ingredient in Focus: Clay

We're totally potty about clay (ha), but with its spectrum of colours and myriad metals, finding the 'right' one is no easy task; there's kaolin, bentonite, french green and rose... and these different goops have distinct compositions, so here's a guide to help locate your skin's clay-based soulmate.

What We Use: Jenny

Our effortlessly elegant Marketing Director (and cake maker!) Jenny, manages to look immaculate - in spite of the fact she has two year old twins, with opposing opinions about 'bed time'. Sleep deprived and constantly in demand ("Mummy! Mummy! Mummy!"), Jenny's skin care routine is a product pentathlon - a race to get things on her face without insult... or injury. So here's how she cares for her combination complexion, in less than five minutes (whilst looking for a 'left' shoe, humouring two tiny persons and trying to get through the door without porridge-y hands on her skirt hem).

How To: Brighten Dark Spots

How To

How To: Brighten Dark Spots

Freckles are indisputably cute - (so cute I've been known to fake a smattering with {Brow Wiz}) - but 'liver spots', acne scars and hormonal pigmentation patches are a little less adorable; they make skin look older, and are literal blots on the clarity of your complexion. But... without getting overly 'Lady Macbeth' on you, you can expunge those 'damn spots' from your visage – just look for 'damn spot ousting' on the label (we jest).

Meet the Founder: Emma Hardie

World-renowned facialist and Cult Beauty expert, Emma Hardie set the beauty world a-buzz way back in 1996, with her signature 'Natural Lift and Sculpting Facial' - a way of massaging and 'kneading' the face to help maintain its strength and resilience. Celebrities, beauty editors and the skin care-savvy flocked in their droves to her swish Mayfair clinic (and continue to do so), to benefit from her unique technique. And now, with the launch of Emma Hardie Amazing Face, you too can emulate the EH method at home; the small (but perfectly formed) capsule collection of multi-use products - together with Emma's prescribed application - will help restore skin's former strength, luminosity and lustre. So go get your glow on...

What We Use: Jennifer

Our Marketing Manager Jen is our resident raver and festival goer. Always enviably attired - mod floral mini dresses (think Alexa meets Moss), and immaculate winged liner (which she can accomplish with her eyes closed #jealous) - Jen has perfected the 'artful insouciance' that most of us strive for... She's a festival professional, and never looks anything other than effortless *sigh*. So here the must-haves she packs for a few days of sun, rain, mud, sweat (and cider).
