“I gained priceless knowledge and it has now given me the motivation to pursue an interest and hopefully a business. I really enjoyed the hands on approach and the personal touch. Very friendly, down to earth and informative.”Femi, Bristol
“I enjoyed the fact that the course was set in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Gail and Gareth are both lovely people who obviously know what they are talking about. The pace was just right. I have gained a lot of confidence and the knowledge to go on and make my own products”Ellie, Northampton
“What a great course, I’m enjoying everything about it! I’m finding the range and variety of recipes particularly helpful, and the explanations of the principals behind producing each product is great.”
“Thanks for a wonderful workshop I really enjoyed it, I learned a lot and gained confidence in making my own facial oils and cream. It was a fab workshop, you made it seem really straight forward and I liked the packaging also – really professional and great for presents too!”
“I really enjoyed the Facial Skincare workshop at your home. It was fun, friendly and I came away feeling very keen to make the products for myself and friends.
I returned home feeling confident to make a whole range of products for my own skincare regime, from face masks to a luxury moisturiser. Wonderful! What a treat.
I liked the small group set up as it allowed everyone to get involved and hands on when making the products. It also made it easy to talk to others, ask questions and share backgrounds.
The time went by very quickly and I was amazed at how much you managed to include and make in the time. The content was excellent, enough to take in at the time and with the notes you have now sent, perfect to get started at home.
All in all it really was a wonderful, interesting and fun afternoon. So thank you.
I have been sharing the products with friends who are all amazed and impressed by them. My personal favourite is the Shea Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm now used every morning, feels so good on the skin.”Diana, Bristol
