“A classic ‘period faace’ candidate, I could time my cycle just by looking at my skin and waiting for the disruption to unfold. Working in the beauty industry for 13 years, I’ve been lucky enough to be able to hunt out products to help pacify the problem. Except I found that I didn’t have time for an eight, five, hell, even three-step routine, especially when I had my son 2 years ago. Any good habits I did have went out of the window and when brushing my teeth got bumped off the list some nights due to sheer exhaustion, I knew something had to change.
I needed a product that I could slap on and leave to do its work. I wanted it to smell good enough to give me a moment of light relief amongst the madness of being a full-time working mum and I wanted it to be super low maintenance to boot. And affordable. Which is how I came up with Faace. Fuss-free, does-what-it-says-on-the-bottle beauty. Rather than focusing on the end result (glow/hydration/skin tone) I wanted an up-front solution that focused on exactly how my skin was looking, and that would sort it out.
You’re on your period/been to the gym/
working like a dog and your skin is suffering?
Faace has got your back.
Easy to apply (I’m always on the move and never near a mirror), I like to keep mine on my bedside table and pop it on just before I pass out every night. Then again, I’d be fibbing if I didn’t mention the one in my handbag too so that I can whip it out after a long day in London before I get home for bath duties in Brighton.”

This isn’t a solo project either. I work with a pool of professionals to ensure I’m formulating Faace to be the best it can be. Journalists, bloggers, make-up artists, aromatherapists, scientists, designers – people I’ve worked with for over a decade.
With mutual respect and a joint desire to make Faace a brand worth buying. I hope you love it as much as we do.
