Haley is owner and creator of Peachy Clean Organic Beauty Boutique.  Today she’s sharing the story behind her passion for skincare, her all time favourite beauty products and there’s an amazing giveaway up for grabs!

Peachy Clean is such a great name for a skincare boutique, is there a story behind it?

I was lucky enough to have the most beautiful nana in the world, a bubble of pure joy and love, a kids best friend. She only ever wore hot pink, I’m talking full blown, head to toe magenta 7 days a week! I get called ‘Peachy’ which I like to think is a few shades of my hot pink-peachy keen nana.  It’s my roundabout homage to the most beautiful lady who ever lived (besides my also amazing mum).  She makes me think ‘Do what makes you happy!’

How did Peachy Clean come about?

When I first heard about all the illnesses and diseases associated with ingredients in my regular, everyday skin care I just couldn’t believe it! And the ingredients were scientifically known to irritate and dry my skin out. No wonder I couldn’t get my skin looking good, I was lathering on the problem.

In making the switch to using natural products, I found it so difficult to know what was natural and what wasn’t.  I soon found out that just because a product has ‘organic’ written on the packet or in the product name, it doesn’t mean anything. A product is legally allowed to be promoted as natural or organic even if it only has one organic ingredient. I was gob-smacked at how tricky it was and the lack of decent products available.  I am so passionate about Peachy Clean Organic Beauty Boutique and it’s so true, if you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life.

What do you look for when choosing Peachy Clean products?

I’m quite a fanatic about what truly qualifies as ‘natural’ and ‘organic’, there is so much false advertising out there so I’m strict about the ranges we sell at Peachy Clean. First of all I scour through the ingredients list to make sure there’s no hidden nasties anywhere in sight and then I personally sample everything! (Yes – that’s my favourite bit!).  I only stock products that I believe are amazing at doing what they say they do.

They should also magically arrive at your door with a little note and some lovely samples to make you smile so that you can then get on with your day 😉 No deciphering of tricky scientific lingo, no being duped by advertising or slogans, no driving to a natural store half hour away to buy a soap and no disappointments. Easy!

If you had to choose your top five products, what would they be?

Five? Are you kidding me? I just came back from travelling (packing light) with no less than 23 products in my beauty bag that I couldn’t bare to be without! Ha ha! I guess if I were Oprah and I had a giveaway show, these five products are ones I would want everyone in the world to have;

1) The Sodashi Brightening Marine Mineral Mask – this little baby is amazing! Quite honestly the best face mask I’ve used, it plumps, firms and evens out skin tone almost instantly. It’s worth every penny! (Oh, and you have a chance to win this amazing product! Details below.)
2) Weleda Creamy Body Wash in Sea Buckthorn – once you lather up in the shower with what feels like whipped cream you’ll never go back to using chemical laden bodywashes that dry your skin out! Luxury in a lather.
3) Sodashi Rejvenating Serum – If your skin needs a kick of moisture, this is it! Super nourishing and super hydrating, a good serum like this one can be the difference between good skin and amazing skin!
4) Vanessa Megan Essential Blend – I use this as a room spray daily! It’s a great way to make your home smell gorgeous and is an instant way to relax. When I walk into my gorgeous smelling home, it signals that the work day is over and it’s time to relax. That I’m home.
5) Savi Soothing Cream – This is a certified organic medicated cream, it’s basically a natural alternative to a steroid cream. Not only is it amazing on problem skin like acne, rosacea, eczema, psoraiasis but it’s also super handy to have on hand for bites, stings and itches. My boyfriend developed an itchy rash while travelling recently and this was a saviour!

And I’m sorry but I just can’t stop at 5!  These would be next on my list;

10) Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil
