Our 'How to Detox your Beauty' Event is a Huge Success

We Did It and  You you Loved it!

Last Saturday, the beautiful Hunter Collective in Central London played host to Me, Keeley from Trying to be a Mum and a crew of Strong and Savvy women exploring Cleaner Beauty options.

Everyone came for their own reasons:  Some were trying to reduce their toxic load, some wanted healthier alternatives to their makeup choices, some just wanted some makeup advice, while yet others came for the company ( and I am sure the AMAZING Goody bag was a draw as well)

Whatever the reason, the feedback has been fabulous so I would like to begin by thanking ALL our guests for coming with big smiles and big hearts.

The Day

Keeley opened the day and welcomed everyone before sharing her journey to cleaner beauty via her IVF treatment with us, which was both touching and and uplifting in equal measures.

Then Melanie Brown Nutritionist who is a Wellness expert with many years of experience, opened our eyes and blew our minds with her passion and information. What we all took away: DONT TOUCH TILL (CASH) RECEIPTS (plastic that gets on your fingers and then everywhere)  +  that there is a lot of "hidden" plastic in the world.  Melanie pointed out that though her specialty is fertility, many health tips she had to offer are valid for everyone.

Then it was my turn, and I tried to share a bit about my journey to Clean/Green/Natural/Organic and Ethical Beauty, before clarifying some of these terms.  Then I shared my strategy for creating a Capsule makeup Bag without Breaking the bank:

Replace items one at a time as you need them so this the basic list, in order of priority:

  1. Foundation/ Tinted Moisturiser (if your skin looks good you feel good)
  2. Lip Product (because you eat it)
  3. Mascara (finishes the face)
  4. Concealer OR Eyeshadow /Brow Palette (depending on which is more important to you)
  5. Eye/Brow Palette (see Above) OR Concealer
  6. Cheek Colour and/or Highlight
  7. Powder to finish and mattify

I gave a quick demo on Keeley to show you that cleaner cosmetics can be as bright and bold or as natural and soft as you like. Depending on your ethics, skin health and lifestyle choices, there are Beauty + Makeup options for you.

Discovering Green Beauty Makeup Brands

Glow Organic brought a whole range of makeup brands for us to try including Nui Cosmetics, Hynt Beauty, Ere Perez, and Zao Organic.

Megan at Dr Mayoni Clinic uses one of the original Clean Makeup Brands Jane Iredale, so she brought her kit with her and shared loads of tips and tricks.

Everyone got a chance to play and try different products while getting lots of Professional advice!As you can see it was lots of fun.


Everyone got to mingle + enjoy some delicious snacks from The Conscientious Cook and Homemade Hummus by Keeley the Wonder Woman. We enjoyed non Alcoholic refreshments from Hunter Collective, as well as delicious Fresh Juices by Juice Baby and then Gorgeous G + Ts (Hand made and served by Keeley's Handsome Hubby John) with libations from the East London Liquor Company.  


As if that was not enough, We had some great prizes to give away from Dr Mayoni and Glow, as well as a gorgeous organic face oil from By Sarah London and some beautiful Bath Salts from Nini Organics.

To Wrap Up

Keeley had to dig down to her Events Production roots and did so much work creating the perfect atmosphere for the perfect day, from fastidious detail planning like making sure the Straws matched our look (bland and white stripes of course) to ensuring everyone was happy - and a HUGE shout out to John Dwight + Their stellar family memebers for all there help in the smooth running of the afternoon. 

Finally, we were able to send our guests home with the most delightful goody bags STUFFED TO THE BRIM with beautiful gifts for our guests.

A very special thank you to Weleda, Nini Organics, Green People, I Love Skin , Burts Bees, Monat, Therapi Honey Skincare, Tranquility Beauty Spa


So we had a great time and hope we could do another again! Please let me know if you would like that!!!
