Since starting my skincare journey, I find that I have deviated away from those big name brands and started to appreciate smaller and niche skincare labels. In discovering these smaller and niche brands I have also discovered a new appreciation for independent 'small batch' skincare brands that make their products by hand in smaller batches. One such brand that caught my eye not too long ago was a brand from New York, Marble and Milkweed, in which I wrote briefly about in this Skincare Discoveries post.
The thing that caught my eye about Marble and Milkweed is the fact that the owner, formulator and creator, Briar has such a passion with the ingredients she uses in all of her products. She loves working with plants (and this is so easily seen in her Instagram) and also loves educating the New York community about plants, native flora and fauna and this can be seen through her work with The Butterfly Project, an organisation that aims to educate and promote the importance of the preservation of plants in urban spaces. Briar uses the most beautiful plant based ingredients in her skincare such as rose, chamomile, cardamon, green tea, jasmine, just to name a few dreamy ingredients and did I mention that she also creates her own tea as well? It is so obvious that the lovely Briar has such an affinity and passion with nature, plants and plant based skincare and this can be seen throughout all of her beautifully delicate sounding formulations in the Marble and Milkweed range.
When a few months ago, Briar contacted me to see if I wanted to try anything from the brand, I picked the Rose and Chamomile Honey Clay Cleanser as I thought the formulation sounded incredibly dreamy, special and indulgent. I am so grateful for her generosity and her willingness to share this creation with me, as I have found the cleanser so wonderful to use!
