If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll have noticed that I am a huge supporter of British, Indie brands who formulate and handcraft their products right here in the UK. Yet what I have recently discovered is that in focusing my attention on British brands, I have failed to notice some incredible brands based overseas that offer a new approach to green beauty by utilising a wealth of natural ingredients to formulate something very special indeed.
Koti Lifestyle is a website dedicated to sharing the best of Nordic beauty products right here in the UK. When Jenny at Koti Lifestyle approached me last year, I was so excited to explore their range of Scandinavian brands that were all completely new to me. Koti Lifestyle was founded on a personal quest to maintain a Scandinavian skincare routine when moving the Britain and certainly fills a gap in the UK market.
The website currently stocks five brands on their site yet are planning to expand this range further in the not-so-distant future. Some of the brands featured on the site are certified organic (COSMOS) but all are formulated with natural ingredients and are cruelty free.
The whole shopping experience was incredibly positive, as Koti Lifestyle’s website made navigating the site an easy process from the attractive design to the simple menus – I was not only able to browse each category but I also had the ability to look into each brand separately and get plenty of information about Koti Lifestyle and the ordering process as a whole.
Placing an order was an easy task from viewing my basket, using a promotional discount and paying for my order – I didn’t experience any hiccups in the purchasing process. I was informed via email when my order was confirmed, and when it was shipped, so I knew exactly when to expect my parcel of skincare goodness. The best news is that the free second class delivery was prompt and arrived well-packaged without any damage.
I decided to purchase* three items from Flow Cosmetics as their skincare range, ethos, plastic-free packaging and reasonable price point made them the perfect addition to my skincare stash. I have a review of the skincare I ordered coming later this month but having tested them for a few weeks already, I must say that it has only been positive so far…
If you’re looking for a new place to shop in 2020, then I cannot recommend Koti Lifestyle enough. I am incredibly picky when it comes to the websites I use to purchase my skincare as I am all about supporting smaller, independent brands that have a true passion for what they do. Koti Lifestyle are the epitome of this, stocking only the brands they believe in and sharing the true power of natural, Nordic beauty products on a very simple yet attractive site that made the whole shopping experience incredibly enjoyable.

*Disclaimer: I was gifted a store credit to purchase products from this site and used my own money to make up the difference on this order. I was no obliged to write a positive review on my shopping experience. This has not influenced my thoughts and opinions in this review as everything on Beauty Folio remains #triedandtested with honest feedback on each product. I will never give a positive review on a product I don’t believe in just because it has been #gifted, and each product i’ve received free of charge will be labelled as such.
