If you are new to Certified Organic Skincare products or are a loyal TRUE fan, here's a quick HOW TO on using your True products in your daily skincare ritual.

Since rebranding TRUE last month I may have sent some of you into a tail spin, after making the decision to not use synthetic preservatives in my Certified Organic products. This has resulted in me removing the water element from my formulas aka no more creams for now.

I believe in a simplified beauty approach and offering a small bespoke range of multi-use multitasking products to give you more time in your day.

Enjoy the purity and potency of Mother Nature in creating gorgeous radiant healthy skin


Use True Wonder Balm as your Cleansing Balm. Warm a small amount (pea size) of balm into your hands. Gently massage onto dry skin in a circular motion. Press a warm wet muslin cloth (face cloth) onto your face and then wipe off. Perfect to soften adn remove dirt, oil and makeup.


Use True Wisdom Exfoliate & Mask Powder (gentle enough to use every other day as a cleanser.) Sprinkle a small amount of powder into your hand. Add a few drops of water to form a paste. Massage gently in a circular motion and remove with warm water or a muslin cloth.


Use True Courage Face Mist after cleansing and prior to applying your moisturiser. A great spritzer to use throughout the day to increase hydration and radiance. And the perfect travel companion to refresh and recharge your adventurous spirit.


Use True Serene Face Oil as your daily moisturiser. Warm 3-4 drops (to start and increase if required) in your hands. Pat gently onto clean, lightly misted skin. Massage into your face and neck using upward strokes.

To create a lighter Facial Serum: In the palm of your hand, mix 4-5 drops of face oil + 2 sprays of face Mist into a light lotion. Press onto your face and neck (Adjust your oil and water ratio with the seasons)

Evening Treatment: Apply a few drops of True Serene Face Oil to your face and neck at night after misting. Warm in your hands and pat gently onto skin, massage gently for 1 -2 minutes.


Use True Wisdom Exfoliate & Mask as described under CLEANSE


Use True Wisdom Exfoliate & Mask powder to create a weekly/ fortnightly boost to your skincare ritual.

Mix powder with warm water, Manuka honey, yoghurt or pure aloe in a mixing bowl. Apply a thin layer to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Relax for 5-10 minutes and rinse off with a warm soaked muslin cloth.

Hi Kyra, Thanks so much for reaching out and for your support of the new direction of TRUE. Having the courage to take my own path and to be honouring and celebrating something I am so passionate about feels so good inside.

A recently certified Meditation teacher, massage therapist, natural skincare formulator and mother of 2, who has lived and breathed holistic health for more than 25 years. Her passion is in empowering women to embody their deepest nature, physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally through nourishing daily practices. Infusing your ordinary everyday routines into sacred self-care rituals, inspired by plants, while cultivating a deeper sense of self compassion, acceptance, inner knowing and moments of stillness. She believes meeting life fully present and awake through our senses is pure magic. Slowing down and tending to our own needs with our full attention is no longer a nice to have, but vital in how we choose to show up in our already chaotic fast paced world. She feels it’s time for a cultural shift away from struggle and stressed out, into living a more deeply connected nourished life.

Being with Emotions and Feelings

Being human is hard sometimes. Instead of shaming or diminishing your experience, gently take your hand in a way you would a loved one and offer up the gift of deep love and compassion.
