Helena Lane is an organic skincare brand that puts the benefits to skin first, without all the additives and ‘junk’ in bigger mass produced brands.
Tell us about the journey Helena Lane Skincare has been on?
I put the final touches to my skin care line just after my son was born, and the business has grown steadily since then. It continued to grow through the birth of my daughter and now that she is almost ready for school it is getting busier and busier. I am so grateful for having the time to let Helena Lane grow slowly as it has meant that I have had the ability to really listen to my customers and provide products that people are truly looking for.
What was one of the biggest challenges you faced to get to where you are now?
Decision making. Although I have lots of support, the final decisions are all mine, and it’s not my strongest skill!
What/who motivates you every day?
I have customers who tell me everyday that they love what I do, and that what I am doing is making a genuine difference to their lives. I love that.
What does ‘thoughtful gifting’ mean to you?
It could be a stone from the beach or a flight across the world, a thoughtful gift feels great to give and will always be treasured.
What is your favourite gift featured on Gift in Time and what occasion is it perfect for?
One of the Soothing gift sets for ultra-sensitive and reactive skin. Perfect for someone who’s skin is uncomfortable and troubled. People with this skin type are often resigned to being able to use nothing or unpleasant/boring skin care, now they can have products that feel and smell amazing and that will help build stronger, healthier skin too!
