Introduction - Mel Millis Organic Skincare




Sometimes you just hit gold when surfing the internet for hours. That is how I felt when I discovered www.melmillis.co.uk

"A Blend Of 100% Natural Organic Ingredients To Create The Most Effective Skincare Regime, Containing Prebiotic And Probiotics To Help Nourish, Hydrate And Rejuvenate."

Mel Millis was founded by Tracey Foy. The story behind why she created the brand is a familiar one - "I had for many years suffered with sensitive, irritated and reddened skin after undergoing a hysterectomy to remove cancerous cells. Despite trying every skincare product available, nothing seemed to work for me. After years of research and discovering the products I had been using had been compounding my problems. I started to make my own products for myself. This lead me into working for 7 years in the organic industry." 

One of the attractions for me with Mel Millis is that they display all ingredients on the website. I am always promoting the importance of this. Customers often have a variety of reasons why they want ingredient lists. From an allergy perspective it makes a huge difference to me and can influence where I choose to spend my money online.

"Mel Millis takes great care when choosing our organic natural ingredients that they have come from a sustainable source and have full certification from the relevant bodies. All of our skincare products do not contain Parabens, Petrochemicals, Pthalates, Artificial Fragrances, Artificial Colours, GMO's, are Alcohol Free and Have Not Been Tested On Animals." 

Another element to Mel Millis which I like is their packaging; you can plant it! Yes, you read that correctly. The outer packaging is made from recycled paper and contains British wild flower seeds. Anyone with green fingers is surely going to love this and can grow some wild flowers in their garden.

I have accepted some samples for review so keep an eye out for that in the future. In the meantime, I recommend having a browse of the website.

Just went to the website, love the look and products that she has to offer as well. Love the detail about the packaging too haha because that already makes me want to try it out (although I don't have a green thumb). Will keep an eye out for your review!

    1. I've been using the moisturiser for a couple of days & first impressions are good, if you hadn't already worked it out from bottle, it is oil :)

    1. I do love it when companies are conscious of the impact of packaging, I've heard of seed paper but never seen it used in this way :)

  4. I love this - I've seen business cards that you can plant but not found it elsewhere. Such a good idea. Look forward to hearing your thought on the products :) x

    1. good that it's dairy free as another brand that everyone is loving right now uses lactose. I think you can understand my need to blog this :)

  6. The idea of pre and probiotics is great for skin care products. I use yogurt in lots of homemade masks but in a skin care range- brilliant!

    1. I have dairy allergy so yogurt in skincare is no good hence the appeal of this mel millis :)
