“I was recently introduced to beauty brand, Chidem Beauty – and I had to share it with all of you. A personalised bespoke beauty brand, where a range is created for you depending on your skin type and your concerns using natural botanical ingredients. The brand have generic ranges to purchase depending on your skin, but you can also take the made to order route, answer a questionnaire and get a whole range delivered to you. Even though mine took some time to get to me, i was really impressed with the products – especially with the cleanser. Everything is all natural, with the ingredients clearly stated. As I’ve been getting quite a few breakouts, mine was created as an Anti-blemish, sebum reducing range made for oily to combination skin. Ingredients in my products include Organic Alpine Willowherb, Nettle, Green clay, and Witch Hazel. They might not smell the best due to natural ingredients, but they really feel fresh, non toxic and good for the skin.”
