Ville de Fleurs Handmade Skincare
My obsession with flowers was passed to me by my beloved grandmother who lived in a little picturesque village in the middle of nowhere, growing many beautiful flowers and herbs in her garden; I remember as a little girl wandering around filled with excitement. She taught me how to treat illnesses with herbal infusions and skin care recipes & I followed her steps.
I have long been interested in natural skin care, but found it hard to find anything suitable for my sensitive skin. Once I started to learn about skin and how many artificial ingredients are used in most products people use everyday, I was shocked! No wonder people are becoming more allergic to everyday things.
So I began making them myself and never looked back.
But then I was so inspired by compliments of my friends & family with the orders to follow and by the way my skin felt after using my creams, I wanted to get more involved.
I started to work with cosmetic scientists, local talented herbalists & aromatherapists, always looking for inspiration.
I would love to bring to a local community of South East London pampering evenings where everyone can relax & discover “flower power”! Did you know that different scents can bring you different emotions – happy, calming, uplifting, romantic?
I will be 50 this year, and yes, I know for some of you, that is very vintage :-) but believe me whatever age you are, you still want to look good! And I want to share all my secrets of how to look & feel good at any age - NATURALLY! For Her! For Him!
And 2012 with the Olympics, was an amazing year for London. It’s such an incredible and unmissable beginning of anything new to start.
And thus Ville De Fleurs was born.
