Holiday skin prep Chronicles of Her

Here’s how to glow before you go. 

When you’ve planned a getaway to an exotic location, preparation isn’t just about packing your suitcase. 
Something everybody (including me sometimes) forgets is that you need to pay special attention to your skin to have it primed and prepped for a bikini ā€“ especially if you’re escaping winter at home.
When it comes to skincare, I like to stick to one brand or “system” at a time so I’m not confusing my skin. At the moment I’m all about Grown Alchemist‘s beautiful botanical body range.

  1. Is this an advertorial post like Harper and Harley's? You really need to make it clear if it is, otherwise it's misleading and you could be breaking the law.

  2. Hi Anonymous,

    Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. As you will see on my Instagram, I've had a longstanding relationship with Grown Alchemist and have been using their products for over a year.

    I only recommend products I genuinely love, whether paid or unpaid, because I know my readers will benefit from the advice. I feel it's my prerogative to do so on my blog, so I don't consider this to be misleading at all.

    Thanks for your feedback!
