Josh Rosebrook is one of the most beloved people in the green beauty industry. He is so popular that there was even a Josh Rosebrook Appreciation Weekend recently on Instagram! His most recent launches sold out within a day or two, and they constantly sell out every time he restocks! Josh very rarely takes part in interviews, and I was so honoured that he gladly accepted my request. Without further ado, let’s get straight into the interview.
If you are a regular reader, you’ll know that Julisis is one of my favourite brands. If I weren’t a beauty blogger and didn’t need to constantly try out new products, I’d be happy to just use Julisis for the rest of my life. All their products are impeccably made using only the finest ingredients, and they all really work. The thing I love about Julisis so much is that the products support the overall health of my skin, in the most holistic way possible. I never have any of my usual skin issues (dehydration, breakouts and uneven skin tone) when I use Julisis products on a regular basis.
The Silver Night products, two of which I will review below, are designed to support the regeneration and rejuvenation processes of the skin. As the name indicates, they all contain bio-available Liquid Silver Essence to improve the texture, tone and brightness of the skin. View Full Post
This is going to be a bit controversial: I’m reviewing two products that are not clean/green and don’t market themselves as such. I decided to test these for two reasons: 1) There is a gaping hole in the green beauty market when it comes to exfoliating toners that actually work; and 2) A lot of beauty bloggers who are primarily green/clean have been waxing lyrical about Lotion P50 and I wanted to see for myself what the fuss was all about. I’d been meaning to test these for over a year, but I was apprehensive after my terrible experience with Pixi Glow Tonic (acne central). I took the plunge a couple of months ago when my friends Yenny and Lacy sent these products to me in a swap. View Full Post
All the Boxwalla boxes I’ve received in the past have contained multiple brands. The June box, however, contains three products, all from Earthwise Beauty. For any of you who haven’t heard of it, Earthwise Beauty is a US-based green beauty brand founded by herbalist Ava Zhan. I’d tried most of the products in the box already, so I had a good idea in terms of what to expect. What I find amazing about Earthwise Beauty is that their products are unlike anything else on the green beauty market. Ava uses very unusual ingredients in unique ways, and I really admire that about the brand.This unique approach is reflected in their packaging, which is colourful and instantly recognisable. People seem to either love it or hate it: I personally like it for the fact that it makes the brand instantly recognisable (and gives it personality) in what has become an endless sea of Miron glass bottles.

Very rarely do I instantly fall in love with a brand. Usually, most brands have products I love and products I don’t, but MUN has surpassed all my expectations with their tightly-edited, beautifully-formulated, exquisitely-packaged line of skincare. Their face line comprises three products: a cleanser, toner and serum – and I love all three products equally. These products work very well together, and it’s one of the few instances where I’d highly recommend using the entire line to reap the full benefits. These products have a minimalist feel to them, and every ingredient is carefully chosen to serve a specific purpose.
Created by makeup artist Munemi Imai and fair-trade advocate Anas Saidi, MUN uses time-tested ingredients from Morocco to nurture and nourish the skin. All products are designed to suit most skin types, from very dry to sensitive to very oily. I’ve been using these products regularly for over two months, and it has never broken out my combination, acne-prone skin. View Full Post
