crystal sparkle look

Some days you just want to shine. It can be for a special occasion, a wedding, a party, an important work event, or just because you are celebrating life and your place in it! We love those moments when you feel inspired, uplifted and happy. Life is full of challenges, but by marking the good moments every chance we can, the glass can start to look half full instead of half empty. When you want a little bit of shimmer, when you feel that special buzz in the air, when you feel like anything is possible and nothing’s going to stop you – this is the look for you. We call it crystal sparkle, after our favourite quartz crystal that is beautiful, positive and made by nature. Think clear, luminous, the quality of catching the sunlight or moonlight when it’s shining just for you.

So how about we start with plastic? Usually people recommend to use BPA free plastic safe, however, the plastic used as an alternative can still be just as harmful, so choose a glass bottle instead!   Less waste – Use reusable rather than disposable containers when bulk buying to cut down the amount of rubbish produced.   Buy what you need – Bulk-buying gives you the opportunity to control how much you buy. You scoop in whatever you need. This helps you save money as you are only paying for what you need!   Natural Ingredients – The more natural ingredients …
