Keeping It Simple

Face Boutique

Having two teenage children of my own I know all about the skin problems young people have to go face. I was quite fortunate as a child myself but then I firmly believe the world has changed so much that there are more irritants in both the products we use and the air that we breath today than there ever were when I was growing up.

The most common complaint facing teenagers is the dreaded curse of acne and a recent study in North America showed that approximately 17 million people in the U.S. suffer from the condition. Nearly 85% of people between the ages of 12 to 24 develop this skincare problem and the trend is a common thing across the globe.

Whilst both men and women are affected young men are more likely to suffer the effects of acne for longer periods of time because testosterone tends to make the condition worse. Dealing with changeable skin can be difficult; spots appear at the most inconvenient time and keeping blemishes at bay may feel like a constant battle.

Sarah Vorback a former investment banker at Merrill International is the founder of Face Boutique, the natural skincare brand for young, changeable skin. She has created a range with a simple ethos in mind; that young people should be offered an easy skincare regime which is clean, ethical and really works. The range does not contain any harsh chemicals. It looks great, it smells divine and it helps control changeable skin.

Naturally, in my line of work I come across dozens of products from all over the world, many of them claiming to offer the panacea to all life’s problems so I thought I would conduct a test with my willing children before commenting on the range.

Two weeks in from receiving the samples and I am happy to say that the results have started to show for themselves with a particular improvement on one of my children’s eczema proving to be an added bonus.

All Face Boutique products are manufactured in the UK, using the most reputable suppliers. None of the products are tested on animals and, where possible, the range is recyclable and biodegradable.

Sarah and her team spent four long years planning and researching in order to produce the highest quality products. Their central aim was to educate young women on how to care for their skin. Hard work and perseverance has resulted in a successful launch in the retail chain Space NK.
