It’s irritating to spend good money on beauty products and not get the results you expect.

According to, American women spend around $15,000 on cosmetics, while UK research shows that British women spend a whopping £140,000 on cosmetics over the course of their lifetime. Gulp! I was estimating my spend at somewhere in the middle. But regardless of the exact figure, it’s a whole darn lot of money!

“…products that work, results you can see, and ingredients that are not going to harm you along the way.”

Since we’re not going to stop buying cosmetics any time soon, we can at least make sure that we only buy the best. That means products that work, results you can see and ingredients that are not going to harm you along the way.

One of my favourite brands that ticks all those boxes is Snowberry. Not only are they a Kiwi company, they’re carbon-neutral and grow their own NZ native botanicals (I’ve been to their farm and have seen their hard work with my own eyes). But most importantly is that their products have been clinically proven, in a Gold-Standard trial, to work.

“The gold standard trial is actually the only standard that counts. It’s the standard in science in any field,” says Dr Travis Badenhorst, Chief Scientist at Snowberry. “The results speak for themselves. We don’t ask consumers to take our word for what the serum will do, we just point to the clinical trial.”

And their New Radiance Serum is the only anti-ageing serum in the world to be presented at the  23rd World Congress of Dermatology. This stuff works!

For the Young (and Wise)

If you’re lucky enough not to have reached wrinkle town yet (i.e. if you’re under 24), Dr Badenhorst suggests that the main skin-saving product you need is a good cleanser. Standard cleansers contain all sorts of foaming ingredients which might make your skin feel clean for a moment, but what it’s actually doing is stripping the natural oils from your skin which will ultimately promote wrinkles. Snowberry’s Instant Deep Cleanser and Gentle Cleanse and Tone may be the only products you need to start seeing a change in your skin. Then of course as the ageing process starts to take hold, you’ll need to add in products for extra hydration and wrinkle reduction and prevention.

I personally can vouch for the benefits of using the range, within two weeks of using Snowberry exclusively, I got the results. Snowberry are so confident you’ll see results that if you don’tget the “Snowberry Glow” after two weeks, return your products for a complete refund!

At belle & sage, we strive to  stock only the best products.
