  • Take care of your lips this winter โ„๏ธ
.
These are flying out at the moment, and with good reason!
.
(Plus a customer messaged me to say sheโ€™s using them in homemade Christmas crackers - love it!).
.
Weโ€™ve packed a lot into that little 10g tin ๐Ÿคฉ
.
๐Ÿฅญ intensely moisturising mango butter
โ˜บ๏ธ healing and nourishing shea butter
๐Ÿ’– luxurious sweet almond oil
๐Ÿ’‹ conditioning castor oil
๐ŸŒฑ protecting plant waxes
.
It took A LONG time to get these just how we wanted them! Thick, creamy, with a good โ€˜stayโ€™ on your lips ๐Ÿ’‹
.
WHY WAS IT SO TOUGH?
Usually, petroleum products or beeswax is used to make lip balm. As our products use 100% natural plant ingredients (vegan), it is a lot harder to balance the butters, oils and plant waxes to replicate the feel that these other ingredients give.
.
But weโ€™ve done it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
And due to the butters and oils we use, these beauties are bursting with vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin F, vitamin K, proteins, omega 6 (linoleic acid), omega 9 (oleic acid), stearic acid and minerals. WOW!
.
They will also love the environment just as much as it loves your lips, with their 100% recyclable aluminium tin, and uncoated paper labels ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ
.
Our MIRACLE LIP BALM is unfragranced, so is a neutral product for your lips โ˜บ๏ธ
.
Keep one in your car, another in your coat pocket for walks, your gym bag, by the kitchen sink, front door, or on your bedside table, and definitely one in your handbag for every other situation ๐Ÿ˜Š
.
A great stocking filler, or little treat for yourself ๐Ÿ’

  • Itโ€™s my NEW favourite thing - check out the lash transformation ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ–ค
.
Do you remember that AAAAMAZING mascara I shared in my stories a few days ago? ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
Well...I had so many messages from you about it, they Iโ€™ve decided to stock it with our other CONCHUS goodies ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
AVAILABLE NOW ๐Ÿ–ค
.
I have natural long eye lashes, and have always struggled with mascara smudging and the dreaded โ€˜panda eyesโ€™ ๐Ÿผ
.
Iโ€™ve tried lots of the premium brands, waterproof and non, and havenโ€™t found one that Iโ€™m happy with ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ
.
This was until I tried this gem! It goes on beautifully, you can wear it lighter or heavier (it was a very quick two applications for the results in the video), it gives great length and thickness (without being clumpy), and it STAYS and doesnโ€™t smudge aaaaaall day ๐Ÿคฉ
.
Itโ€™s also...
๐Ÿ’š Natural
๐ŸŒฑ Vegan
๐Ÿฐ Cruelty Free
๐ŸŒ Low Plastic Packaging
๐ŸŒ Refillable
.
AND it comes off a treat with our Miracle Light Oil ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
Treat yourself for all those Christmas parties and meet ups, or itโ€™d make a great gift for your friends and family ๐Ÿ’
.
Weโ€™ve just done a BIG restock of this in black, and it comes in bamboo outer packaging in a lovely cotton pouch ๐ŸŒ *we will also stock the refills soon to use ongoing*
.

  • Nothing beats counting down to Christmas like a daily sweet treat, but how about this for some additional daily happiness running up to Christmas? ๐Ÿฅฐ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’
.
My daughter brought this home from school, where the teachers are encouraging the Kindness Advent Calendar ๐Ÿฅฐ What a lovely idea!
.
Christmas is a time of year where many people can really struggle. It is a time where all problems, loneliness, bereavement and loss, are really exaggerated.
.
So take some time to follow the Kindness Advent Calendar this December, and give to those who need it โค๏ธ
.
Small acts of kindness can mean the World to people, and you will feel great for doing it too ๐Ÿฅฐ

  • Hey, this is me ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
.
My name is Camilla and I own CONCHUS. I do a lot more than that though. I make every product from scratch by hand, I cut, wrap and label, I develop, test and refine, I do all the branding, marketing and graphic design - I even built the CONCHUS website and store ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Iโ€™m involved in another business that I jointly own, but CONCHUS is all mine ๐Ÿฅฐ Itโ€™s all about me, my beliefs and my values โค๏ธ
.
Iโ€™m 34 and live in Buckinghamshire, and this is my gorgeous family ๐Ÿฅฐ (on holiday this year ๐Ÿ˜Ž).
.
I started CONCHUS to reach out to people, and encourage and support change ๐ŸŒ
.
I live in a large, modern, forward thinking town, and wanted to create bathroom products that were also modern and interesting, that you could use easily with no compromise, that were affordable, that reduced waste, that ditched plastic, that were 100% natural, that were vegan, palm oil free and cruelty free, and items that would give above and beyond their cost ๐Ÿ’š
.
Just a few things ๐Ÿ˜… and Iโ€™m incredibly happy with where I am with CONCHUS, but being an ambitious, driven person, thereโ€™s always more to create and achieve ๐Ÿ˜
.
I think itโ€™s important you know who you buy from, and also to understand that this isnโ€™t a large corporation with products that are made on mass in a factory ๐Ÿญ
.
>> Iโ€™d LOVE to know more about all of the amazing people who follow CONCHUS and use our goodies - tell me a little bit about you below โ˜บ๏ธ<<
.
Thank you for supporting us - it means the World ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ
