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 love this! I feel my skin glowing every time I use it.
I purchased the restorative bundle and absolutely love it. I've been using it now for 2 weeks and my skin feels like it did in my 20's.
Trying it on my daughter's acne prone skin now also to see if it helps.
Highly recommend these products.
I previously had major skin cancers removed from one side of my face. They had to go in deep to get it all. While I was healing I took a month off work, I hid at home and didn't go out at all.
A friend gave me some Blam blam balm which I was reluctant to use because of risk of infection. However after using only Blam blam balm for a month my face healed and the scars disappeared giving back my face and the confidence to go outside again after a month indoors! So thank you for creating it, I don't hide my face anymore with my hair and wear less make up, so I want to let you know how grateful I am, thank you!
I have been using this face cream for over two years now and I still enjoy using it every single day. I use it morning and night as part of my face routine and the result is my face feeling hydrated and an even skin tone. Could not recommend this more.
My skin was already in tip top condition after a recent discovery of the magical Agnes and Me face oil. I was surprised to see how much brighter my skin became when I used the serum. Those pesky dark age spots have started to fade. I worried that applying both the serum and face oil would make me look shiny as a glazed doughnut. But I am pleasantly delighted that the products get absorbed leaving my skin soft and lovely.
I love this serum! I’ve been using the Super Hydrating Face Cream for about two years now and when Deirdre announced the new face serum, I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s honestly the best serum I have ever used. Not much is needed, which means your face isn’t shiny and oily, it’s just the right amount of hydration, leaving the skin glowing and feeling super soft. It’s been added to my little beauty regimen.
And what I love about all the Agnes & Me products is that they are cruelty free, vegan, organic and made locally 🖤
I love the blam blam balm, makes my skin feel great after using last thing at night. The dace oil is a treat too, and tge face cream will always be on my list of buys.
Loving this oil. I can feel the difference it's making to my skin.
Smells nice too.
I've only been using this for a week and I'm absolutely loving the way my face is feeling so soft and my itchy red spots have even settled now and not itchy or barely even red anymore. I'm going to try it on the back of my hands now too. It's amazing love love love 💘
Another wonderfully uplifting product from Agnes & Me. Honestly, I have found the serum (and the face cream and Blam Blam Balm) so lovely that they improve my general wellbeing on the daily. I have got my glow back and I feel so much better. I highly recommend all of these to anyone, but especially to those of you who are coming to terms with how skin can become a bit dull and more sensitive as we age. This serum doesn't muck around - it gets straight to work on sorting your skin out and helps improve vibrancy and confidence.
For me, this cream has the perfect balance between richness and weight - so lush without being heavy or greasy. It has given my face so much of its life back :-) Just buy it! I use it as part of a three-pronged approach with Blam Blam Balm and the Restorative Face Serum with Bakuchiol & Kiwi Seed and they are all magical in their own way.
I have been using Agnes and me products for over 18 months and have been so happy with them so I jumped at the chance to try out the new face serum when it was announced. I thought my skin was feeling good before but this serum is next level. My skin feels so much softer and I feel the skin blemishes that come with ageing skin are also less noticeable ! Even my son has noticed, telling me I look younger . I highly recommend the Agnes & Me products. Thanks Deirdre!
I use Agnes & Me serum day and night, it makes my skin feel lush. The serum absorbs quickly, has an almost matte like finish - giving a great base for Agnes and Me face cream (another awesome product).
I have been using my Agnes & Me face serum for a week now and can honestly say my skin feels and looks so much better. It is such a lovely product and feels like silk on my skin. I am so happy I found Deidre at a local market a few years ago. I love all of the range and would not use anything else. Just amazing!
This lovely serum was recommended by a friend, and I was not disappointed! I have only been using it for a week and the only appropriate word I can think of is "dewy". That's how it makes my skin feel. I use it day and night as recommended and I just love the texture of my skin all day, and when I wake up in the morning, it feels just the same. I put a little bit on the top of my hands as well and it has even improved how they look too! Miracle product!
Don't take our word for it ...
