On Saturday the lovely Louella from Kiss Ready Lips, sat down with us for Meet the Makers and to tell us a little more about herself. You can find her interview here..
A little recap, I met Louella at the Sydney Finders Keepers in December last year and fell in love with her positivity. Just watching her explain how her products worked and why she created them, made me so interested – I quickly snapped up one of the gift sets, a scrub and a lip balm!
Louella crafts all the products by hand. After being impressed with the nutritional and healing properties of the chia seed, this paved the way for Louella to learn more about the superfood and see how it could be incorporated into skincare and beauty.
I absolutely love the Rose Omega Face Balm, with its silky smooth texture and the gentle exfoliation from the oats…more about that soon!
Louella also has Kiss Ready Baby and Mama under the umbrella which includes lighter versions of the oils specifically made for baby’s skin and nursing mums.
All products are vegan and cruelty free too!
Omega Rose Face Balm – $58AUD
As I mentioned above, I absolutely LOVE the Rose Omega Face Balm. It is so dreamy. It has a creamy texture that melts when you apply it your face. It has finely milled oat flour which acts as an extremely gentle exfoliator.
It has a subtle scent of rose, which reminds me of some Turkish Delight.
I use this as my second cleanse, due to my use of waterproof make up, however I find it cleanses extremely well and could be used as a first cleanse.
You can also use this as a lip balm and on dry patches of skin such as elbows, knees and feet.
Omega Rose Face Mist – $26.95AUD
I like to keep my bottle of Omega Rose Face Mist in the fridge, to use as a little facial treat when it’s warm or when my face starts to feel a little dry from the heating.
It’s nice to use as a little stress-reliever too as the scent of rose is quite calming.
Light Chia Oil – $25.00AUD
The hero of the family, the Light Chia Oil is made up of 4 ingredients;
* Sweet Almond Oil
* Chia Oil, sourced within Australia
* Rose Geranium extract oil
* Rosemary extract oil
Another multi-purpose product, the Light Chia Oil can be used is multiple ways. Since my operation I’ve been using it on my scars (along with other oils I have) and also I like to use it on the ends of my hair.
It comes with a handy dropper, so easy to apply just the right amount.
Superfoods Antioxidant Face Mask – $50AUD
This mask lives up to its name with an antioxidant rich combination of green superfoods such as chia, spinach and kale – it smells very green, it reminds me a little of a vegetable soup.
Green in colour, it comes as a powder which when mixed with water becomes a paste which you then apply to your face. The benefits of this is the mask, when in powder form, is more potent and rich in vitamins. It’s also a great way to minimise waste.
I am a big fan of this mask, I find it leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and plump.
Kiss Ready Lips is a great little Australian brand, created by someone who is extremely passionate about what they are doing. Although I am a big fan of Louella, she is also very supportive of myself and what I’m doing for small business’s. For this I’m incredibly grateful.
