The main focus of the brand is producing natural, locally made, vegan, cruelty free products (they do do a few non vegan products but it mainly is vegan, if that’s something that’s important to you).
As a new mum, I ain’t got much use for a bath bomb at the moment. My 4 year old daughter on the other hand was all over them. I ended up buying her a bag of bath crumble- this is basically crushed bath bombs of various colours, when you sprinkle it into the bath it looks like a rainbow and smells amazing. My girly girl was chuffed to bits. I decanted the crumble into a Kilner jar and it looks rather marvellous.
Miss Patisserie also do a range of fragrance, scented candles, soaps, sugar scrubs and tucked away at the back is a range of skincare. Now we’re talking my language!
The skincare line consists of skin oils, powder based face masks body and skin cream. The ingredient lists are lovely and short, no crazy chemicals. I think it’s always a good sign if you can understand what all the ingredients are without referring to a chemistry textbook. I went for the Brightening Walnut Stone Face Mask and Kakui Facial Oil for congested, problem skin.
The Walnut Stone face mask comes in an intriguing powder formulation. You take a spoonful into the palm of your hand and mix with your chosen liquid (apparently you can use milk, oil or lemon juice as well as water) then apply to a clean face. My skin felt lovely and soft after using. I like that it comes as a powder, you can adapt it to your skin needs.
