A small, perfectly-formulated range of indulgent and uncomplicated skincare created to give you healthy, hydrated, happy skin.
From Nursing to natural skincare
Or how I started by accident
I started making Agnes & Me products more than a decade before I sold a jar, and in all honestly selling it never entered my head, until Lisa came along.
Many skincare founders talk about their businesses coming from a place of pain and frustration with skin issues that could not be fixed. I just wanted something natural and gorgeous to use on my own skin, which needed more hydration, partly from getting older and partly from moving to New Zealand.
While I waited for my New Zealand Nursing registration to be approved, I did lots of workshops at the Sustainable Living Centre, mostly gardening, composting, insulation and then one on making a balm.
From there I made a face cream and a body butter, I would gift these to anybody who would use them until Lisa repeatedly told me they were so good I had to sell them.
She took it one step further and convinced a local Farmers Market into letting us have a stall. And the rest is history.
I hadn’t thought of using an oil as well as a moisturiser. Now that I am my skin is softer and more nourished. The face oil is rich but still light and well absorbed.
A gentle way to remove the day. Great on mosquito bites as well.
Love your Organic Face oil. Use it every day and it always feels like a treat!
I Just love all these wonderful products. my ageing skin craves them. I would not use anything else now.
Super Hydrating Face Cream with Organic Rosehip Oil 60mls
I have been using Deirdre’s products for some time now and absolutely love them all. My last purchase was the daily essentials bundle I got the face oil without the pump which is handy as I already purchased one earlier on. I use these daily and have definitely noticed a difference. I have sensitive skin and have had no problemsThanks Deirdre for making these available for us to buy😊
Love this product as it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and silky soft. Perfect for the dryness of winter.
This is my go to every day. This serum hydrates my skin without breakouts and feels and smells devine
Hi Deidre - I've been using your skincare products (Face Cream and Face Oil) for over 4 years now and love them - not only are they great products but I love the ethos of your company too.
My skin sensitives have all but disappeared and I get a lot of compliments on my skin - people seem surprised when I tell them I'm 55 years old!
I can't recommend Agnes & Me highly enough.
Thank you for creating such great products.
I have been using these products for about a year now and they have been life changing for me! I have pustula rosacea on the end of my nose, one cheek and in my lip line. I have been on antibiotics and had cream from the doctor with no permanent results, it just keeps coming back. The Agnes and Me blam blam balm applied to the area 3 times a day has smoothed down all the rosacea bumps so much that I can wear make up again comfortably, I don't get flare ups anywhere as much as I used to and when I do I just put more of the balm on and it just soothes it and makes it less angry. I also use the face oil twice a day and the face cream. The overall condition of my skin has improved so much, it's astounding. I'm in my early 40's and my skin really started to dry out a few years ago. These products have given me back my soft smooth skin. My confidence has improved so much from using these products and getting my good skin back. I highly recommend, the price is very reasonable given how long they last. You know exactly what you are putting on your skin, no nasty chemicals. An absolute life saver in my opinion! Deirdre is so lovely and knowledgeable and the products always arrive so fast. If you have been struggling with dry skin and/or Rosacea, I think you should give all these products a go. Thanks so much Deirdre!
Great oil and love the Blam Blam
I've been struggling with my skin through menopause ... it doesn't know whether its wrinkly and dry or oily and pimply. I used to use your your balm religiously and then stopped for some reason and my skin acted up terribly. I've just started using the blam blam balm again and already there has been a vast improvement. Thank-you for making such a wonderful product that doesn't cost the earth!
Love this face cream! It feels amazing on my skin, rich, hydrating and soothing, smells great at bedtime and best of all made in NZ from superior ingredients!
I love the smell and consistently of this product, has been great got everything especially my cracked heels and dry hands
Tried my recently purchased pink clay mask today. What a lovely experience. Easy to mix and apply and washed off well in the shower. Left my skin looking refreshed and feeling very soft.
Don't take our word for it ...
