Where can I find the ingredients list for your products?
You will find the list of ingredients for each product on the individual product page.
I already have oily skin. Won’t using oils on my skin make it worse?
Using oil-based products on oily skin is actually a great way to calm skin down, as you signal to the skin to stop over-producing the oils itself, and over-time oil production should reduce.
Are your products cruelty- free?
Yes! We do not: Test any product ingredient s or final products on animals. Pay anyone else to test any product ingredients or final products on animals. Have a parent company that conducts or funds animal testing. Sell their products in mainland China
Are your products vegan?
A Majority are - but a few are not, and they are listed below: Collagen, Keratin, Hyaluronic Acid Supplement (contains fish) Skinperfection Mineral Cleanser (contains cera bellina wax, a bi-product of beeswax)
What does small batch mean?
It means we make small batches, often! Usually we make our skincare products weekly, so you are receiving the freshest and highest quality of ingredient that's not been sitting around for months.
Do you offer trial sizes?
Yes we do - for all skincare products (except Night Oil), and all fragrances. We do not offer trial size for Supplements or other brands we stock.
Should I get a spray perfume or roller?
There is a bit of a difference between purchasing a spray versus a 100% pure perfume oil (roller or 1ml sample). Some prefer to use a spray so it clings to clothing, and others like to use a roller which stays on the skin longer. Alcohol is used in all spray perfumes, as that is what carries the scent and allows it to disperse, as you can't spray a pure oil. Once the scent is sprayed the alcohol evaporates and you are left just with the aroma settling. It is possible for some people to smell alcohol a lot stronger than others do, but for most people that disappears very fast, leaving just the aroma compounds to settle in and leaving a full bodied scent. It's best to not spray the perfume too close to the skin, instead spraying from a distance of about 15-20cm and once that evaporates as intended.. you should just smell the fragrance left behind. Spraying too close to the skin and smelling it right away, hasn't allowed enough time for the scent to develop or settle.With a roller perfume it is just pure perfume oil, undiluted (as it doesn't need a carrier like a spray) - so you may find that stronger, and while it won't have the same 'scent-drift' that a spray does, it will be much stronger for you to personally smell. It is simply personal preference really as to which option you prefer ;)
The shaving oil is making my shower floor slippery:
The oils shouldn’t be applied in such quantities that there is enough to wash off at all once applied to skin.We recommend you step out from under any running water when you apply it, so the water can’t splash the oil away onto the floor, before it reaches your skin. Apply no more than 1-2 pumps of oil into your hand and rub hands together, before applying to the area you need to shave. When used in this way, there should be no oil going on the floor at all.
My razor is clogging when I use shaving oil:
This can take a little playing around to get right for each individual - just because we all have different things going on, such as different hair thickness, different water temp, different water pressure etc.
The first thing would be to make sure you're not using too much oil - excess oil just goes straight into the razor, so you only need to apply just the right amount for each area - and it's usually less than what you think it is. Oil goes a really long way, so start off with less.
The other tip would be that as you are shaving and then rinsing in between - hold the BACK of the razor up to the water to clear it between shaves, rather than the front face of the razor - it will clear faster with water hitting it from the back. Some people find swishing it in a cup/bath/basin of water works best for them, but it depends on where and how you shave really.
The first time you use the oil you may have a lot of dead skin build up that will come off in the razor (especially on legs), but this will improve with each use as your legs become more moisturised. We recommend using it as an in-shower moisturiser on non-shaving days to help with this.
If you still find it's giving you issues, you can always shave and then apply the shaving oil as a post-shave oil once done, it will still ensure beautiful soft and moisturised skin, and reduce rashes.
Are all of your products Natural?
No they are not - our Fierce Fragrances are a blend of natural and synthetic ingredients. They have been crafted to be hypoallergenic, so they don't contain the usual natural allergens that cause a reaction in those with allergies. Instead they contain some skin-safe synthetic ingredients so they can be worn by those with sensitivities and allergies, who may not normally be able to wear fragrances.
All other products aside from Fierce Fragrances, are 100% natural.

Can I return my empty skincare bottles:
We do not have the facility to receive empty bottles back, sorry. Please wash and recycle with your usual glass and plastics accordingly.It is a very water-intensive process to get a bottle back to sterile and is not necessarily better for the environment to return empties and wash them for re-use unless you have a very good process to manage it, which we don't. We are working on refill options.We currently have a refill for the toner, and we have a refill for the shaving oil. Other refill options are in the pipeline as we identify the best options.Thanks so much and have a great day ahead

We are always looking at ways to improve our packaging so we are as efficient and earth-friendly as we can be.

What are the benefits of Auto-shipments?
You can receive your products at a regular interval (in-line with your daily use) so that you never run out, and you can save $$ while doing so! the best way to work out how often to get them shipped, is once you have almost run out of the product, check your emails and find the last order confirmation email, and see how many days it was since you last ordered. Set that as the re-order interval. You can change or cancel at any time.
Where do I enter the discount code:
It depends on what device you are using to purchase from, as to where in the process the discount code field shows... but it's usually around the point where you add your shipping info. The field is GIFT CARD OR DISCOUNT CODE.
If you're on a phone it will be the mobile version but the field is called the same thing, enter the code there and proceed to checkout.
How does your subscription or auto-ship system work?
Check out our tutorial on how to use our new subscription system here.
