IT’S exactly one year since LouLouBelle London launched our aromatherapy skincare range – and I’d like to thank all our wonderful customers for your support.
I can’t tell you how much of a roller coaster it’s been! We began trading in Autumn 2014 with nine beautiful products consisting of our cleansers, toners and moisturisers that are made from natural ingredients.
It had previously taken me three years of hard work learning how to make the products, writing the recipes and changing ingredients in order to get everything just how I wanted it.
Then came the testing on friends and family, holding my breath and crossing my fingers and hoping that everyone would love our range … and guess what they did!!
It was such a personal journey: I found it very scary sending our products to bloggers and the press without knowing what they were going to say. Thankfully we had nothing but positive feedback – some of which you can read by clicking here.
I have now added our beautiful ivory boxes and our facial oils – and we’ll be soon be launching a new hand cream. It takes two to three years for us to refine one of our products to perfection and to ensure that they meet all the safety standards.
In addition to selling online, we also attended an artisan market to see how well our products would be received. Again we waited with baited breath and thankfully people loved the aroma and the texture.
We’ve also had a great reaction from top journalists – including Cheryl Carter, Beauty Editor at The Sun, who highly praised our Mandarin Rebalancing Moisturiser for Combination Skin.
It was also an honour to see our Palmarosa & Patchouli Hydrating Moisturiser for Dry Skin shortlisted as Best New Natural Face Product at the 2015 Pure Beauty Awards.
Bit the highlight of the year has unquestionably been all the kind feedback that we’ve received from you, our lovely customers.
