The Candle Brand
Everyone loves a candle, but not all candles are created equally! The candle brand developed over a couple of years by Christina, a new mum who wanted to create candles with a difference. The long toil was to make sure her products were safe (after learning the dangers of some fragrances), environmentally friendly as well as being vegan.
Made from Coconut and Rapeseed without paraffin, soy, beeswax, palm, dyes and synthetic additives as well as having a wooden wick from a company who donates back a percentage of its profits to regrowing trees. As well as having eco friendly and recyclable packaging.
I think you’ll agree she did a great job, without compromising on aesthetics, quality of candle or scent selection.Sounds like the real deal to me.
Sheet masks, these guys have got you covered. Treatments designed to rejuvenate the skin and tackle all sorts of skin complaints from dry skin to pore reducing and acne prone skin! Your face will thank you.
You may have heard that sheet masks are the devil from an environmental perspective, not in Barber Pro's case. Rest assured they do the absolute utmost to ensure they leave the smallest prints they can. All of their masks are plastic free and degrade within 75 days and are planning to make their entire range water free in the next year. It doesn’t stop with just their products though, they try to use renewable energy sources wherever they can from powering their warehouses to their car fleet (hoping to be fully electric by 2021). They aim to reduce their monthly carbon footprint by 18.67 every month in ways such as working towards a zero air freight policy as well as partnering with Offset Earth to plant 192 trees a month to help towards their goal.
They are morally sound too, never testing on animals as well as ensuring they source sustainable ingredients from ethical suppliers. If you want to take a look for yourself, take a peek here.
To add to the bounty, Barber Pro have given a selection of their sheet masks including; Super eye, brightening, post shave, face putty, under eye, skin renewing foil, foaming cleanser, gentlemens as well as a SUPER EYE trio of their most luxurious masks. You’ll never look so good at Christmas.
If you haven’t tried Montezumas Chocolate you have been missing out! It is truly delicious. Not only is the quality of the chocolate out of this world they’re also an amazing company. Conscious of ethical, fair trading and their impact on the environment they look at every aspect making sure it meets their exacting standards - they don’t compromise their moral expectations for price, they will always buy the best quality cocoa at a fair price for everyone. Committed to reducing their carbon footprint in every way they can, including delivery methods, packaging solutions and the energy they use in theirs stores and factories and they are hoping to be carbon neutral by 2025. As if this wasn’t enough they are also not greedy with their profit and and have been helping Children on the edge (COTE) a children’s charity in Chichester (ooh what a nice bit of alliteration) for over 10 years, and have raised over 100,000 in that time!!
Anyway, back to the chocolate. Montezumas are giving their ‘all I want for christmas’ box (the excitement is palpable) which includes; Christmas Grand Truffle Carton, Milk Cranberry Snowmen, Dark Hazelnut Snowmen, Christmas Bar Library, Peanut Snowballs, Caramel Snowballs, Spice It Up, Minted,Happiness and Fitzroy. Sounds dreamy right!
Everyone knows the importance of good Coffee! Functioning without one in my case is simply unfathomable.
Perky Blenders are one of our favourites (not just because they love a cheeky collab with us!) but because they, just like most of the other brands involved are a conscious brand; Just as impassioned about brewing fantastic coffee as doing the world some good.
Sourcing all of their beans sustainably and from trusted suppliers, ensuring the larger plantations pay a good wage and quality of living to their staff as well as sourcing smallholders and independent farmers to give the little man a chance.
Caring as much for their coffee as their customers they are also a very personable company. We all like that don’t we!
Anyway I’m probably going off topic (again), to the prize - A large part of their business, aside from their stores is their subscription service (super handy if you’re a coffee addict like me). They are offering a whopping 12 month subscription, coffee all year - can I get a whoop whoop?
The Brighton Beard Co.
Oh and last but not least, our goodies! We won't ramble on about how great we are, you should all know that by now ;)
