Have you ever considered skincare as an act of self-love? Well, this is Becky Shobande’s perspective on skincare and the foundation on which her brand, My Glow Secrets, was built. My Glow Secrets is a black-owned, UK-based, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and natural skincare brand, with top quality, naturally formulated products that enhance, protect and nourish the skin.
Becky Shobande is dedicated to helping other women within and outside the UK, navigate through different skincare concerns that mostly plague young women. The multi-talented beauty-preneur sees skincare as an act of self-love, and this philosophy is the foundation on which her brand, My Glow Secrets, was built.
Inspired by the founder’s own skin struggles, My Glow Secrets is a UK-based, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and natural skincare brand, with top quality, naturally formulated products that enhance, protect and nourish the skin. Four years ago, Becky suffered from low self-esteem and unusually high-stress levels, owing to the stubborn dark marks on her face. Skincare was the first step she took towards her self-love journey. According to the founder, changing her perspective and seeing skincare through the lens of self-love helped her to build back her confidence, establish more healthy routines and improve her mental health. Today, My Glow Secrets is dedicated to promoting self-love and body positivity through skincare.
“My journey inspired me to launch My Glow Secrets. I want to use my platform to promote self-love and positivity through skincare. The reason I decided to sell natural, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free skincare products is because I want my customers’ skin to be nourished from the inside-out whilst knowing that they are not applying any chemicals or harmful ingredients onto their skin. I believe this is also a great act of self-love. The goal for me with my brand is to help people unlock their confidence and achieve the healthy, glowing skin they deserve. On our website, we also release tips and monthly articles that impart knowledge on skincare and how to navigate through different skin care concerns at the different stages of our lives. “
My Glow Secrets currently boasts a wide range of skincare products, using natural ingredients to create a simple but impactful skincare experience for every user. Here are a few of our favourite products:
- Vitamin ACE Moisturiser: This moisturiser contains the perfect anti-ageing combination. It includes Vitamin A (retinol), which prevents premature ageing by reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles leaving the skin looking younger. It is also packed with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which is rich in antioxidants, reduces UV damage, fades dark spots, brightens and evens out skin tone. This Vitamin ACE Moisturiser also includes Hyaluronic Acid which is great at retaining moisture to the skin. It will also help to boost collagen production which results in tighter, firmer skin.
- Acai & Goji Microdermabrasion Scrub: This microdermabrasion scrub instantly gives the skin a natural healthy glow. It is infused with acai and goji berry extract with high antioxidant content. The natural formula will gently remove dead skin cells and will absorb the skin’s excess natural oils leaving pores clear and acne reduced.
- Rose Aloe Toner: This toner will finish the cleansing process by removing any excess oil and impurities cleansers couldn’t reach. It will also retain moisture to the skin leaving it feeling silky smooth, soft and not greasy. This Rose Aloe Toner contains Aloe Vera which has cooling properties that soothe the skin. After use, the skin will feel calm, soothed and refreshed. This toner is also packed with Vitamin C and Orange Essential Oil which will brighten the skin and minimise the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
- Black Clay & Liquorice Mask: This brightening face mask is effective at getting rid of stubborn dark spots and uneven skin tone. Formulated with Liquorice Root extract, this mask will fade hyperpigmentation from acne scarring, age spots, and sunspots. This mask is also enriched with black clay which cleanses the skin of dirt and excess oils whilst also preventing premature ageing by reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles leaving the skin looking younger.
- Pro Age Eye Cream: This anti-ageing eye cream is perfect for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, green tea extract and aloe vera, it will immediately moisturise, soothe and fill wrinkles, minimizing the appearance of fine lines. This Pro Age Eye Cream is packed with an intense vitamin-rich formula that will brighten the dark circles under tired-looking eyes and reduce UV damage. After use, the under eyes will have a healthy glow and natural radiance.
According to Becky, her long-term goal for her brand is to continually promote self-love and skin positivity through skincare and expand her current product range, always fulfilling the needs of her customers. In the next couple of years, she wants to see My Glow Secrets Skincare on the shelves of beauty supply stores such as Boots and Superdrug.
