I floated into a divine beauty boutique called Mary Bruce Natural Organic Skincare tucked away in a peaceful part of McCrae. As the vibrant Mary Bruce, owner/operator and Beauty Therapist approached me with her generous smile, she invited me on a tour of her gorgeous 1920’s themed ‘beauty parlour’, supported by a colour palate of lavender and coloured 1920’s accessories reflecting Mary’s endearing personality.
Mary’s journey is one of fascination and excitement as she has lived and breathed the cosmetic industry most of her life. She decided to create her own beauty range called Mary Bruce Natural Organic Skincare when she discovered women were struggling with skin reactions and sensitivity from harsh commercial products. She formulates and makes her own essential oil skin range on her premises including her signature product called ‘That Creeme’, referred to as the ‘health and beauty wonder cream as well as a first-aid staple’!
Mary Bruce Natural Organic Skincare products include ‘Face Essentials’ and Essential Facial & Body Treatments, Natural Organic Skincare for babies and men, even pets. All products are low fragrance using essential oils with no chemicals to strip the skin.
Mary explains, “I believe skin should be balanced using natural products. Women tend to focus on balancing lifestyle with exercise and diet but don’t put as much emphases on balancing their skin.” She added, “Sometimes it’s a lack of education so I run courses to show how easy it is.”
Mary observed over the years that women lack time and energy to follow a long and lengthy beauty routine so she developed the 3 step, 3 minute cleaning routine. Try it!
