Our ‘Mascne’ Spray is featured in Vitality Magazine Nov-Dec 2020
In Sept 2020 we launched our ‘Skin Calming Mist’ to combat what is now known as ‘Mascne’ – spots and skin irritation due to frequent face covering. Monica formulated this all natural spray with organic ingredients such as aloe vera to soothe and heal skin, peppermint as an antiseptic and to help breathe better, and tea tree and witch hazel for spot prevention. The spray has been very popular with our clients and we have been able to donate some of our profits to NHS charities.
