Honest Skincare // Birmingham

Honest is a gorgeous skincare brand by Katie Fisher and a real Birmingham success story. Katie started out making the range from her studio at home, however she has recently opened a store complete with working kitchen in Kings Heath, Birmingham, just down the road from me.

According to Katie, the concept for Honest was born out of her desire to have an holistic approach, using organic food for the skin, natural with no chemicals, with ethical packaging, simple ingredients and being true to all.

There are 3 ranges, CALM, BALANCE and NOURISH that have been carefully tailored to individual skin types using skin-loving waxes and vitamins blended with the finest organic oils.

I popped in to the store the weekend after it opened and was amazed at the products as well as the beautiful store. I've been using the BALANCE cleanser and moisturiser since, and have seen a real improvement in the brightness of my skin.

For locals, I'd recommend a visit to the store, which is a real asset to Birmingham's independent retail scene and for those further afield take a look online.
