soraya hendesi founder of snowberry

It seems there’s a group of you out there who have a little love for New Zealand green beauty brand Snowberry.

I’m relatively familiar with the brand (I’ve tried the facial massage oil and a sunscreen), and am excited to explore it a bit more.

The next step in deeper exploration is getting to know its founder, Soraya Hendesi, and what products she loves.

Like many beauty company founders, Soraya’s vision for Snowberry stemmed from frustration in finding a natural, effective skincare line.

She wanted to bring green beauty to New Zealand — and the world — that was both pure and active.

This meant combining the the finest ingredients from nature with functional peptides, enzymes and antioxidants to create powerhouse formulations the deliver.

In reading through Soraya’s submission, I’m tickled to see that dark chocolate, lipstick and sunscreen are her beauty bag staples — isn’t that all we need?!

I’m excited to put a few of these products on my list of “things to try.” Enjoy!

Loving Earth Raw Organic Goji & Camu Camu Dark Chocolate

I carry it in my Snowberry Bag and have a little with a late morning flat white coffee with my friends. I love it for its intriguing taste and authenticity. It also revs me up. I buy from Huckleberry Farms shop in Greenlane Auckland.

Living Nature Summer Rain Lipstick

The best 100 percent natural lipstick ever made. It is the only lipstick I have ever found that does not cause my lips to dry and peel. I carry it with me everywhere.

Escorial Handmade Merino Wool Scarf

I don’t wear this often, but when I do on special occasions, it is such a work of art. It is captivating.

Snowberry Everyday Broad Spectrum SPF 15

The best 100 percent natural broad spectrum sun protection. This Snowberry SPF was formulated because I wanted a natural certified broad spectrum sun protection, stand alone, that would not appear white after application and did not feel sticky. Many have mistaken this product for something that includes chemical screens and yet it does not!

Snowberry Travel Cosmetic Bag

This bag we designed and had hand-made in New Zealand and of the finest quality materials we could find as a limited edition to our range.

I loved it so much I had to buy one for myself. It makes a great city bag but works very well as a travel bag with its own cosmetic inner compartment and lag.

I use this most days but treasure so much I am mindful of where I take it!

Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini

I am not a great fan of phones, however being Persian, we are always in touch with family and friends…daily! So I find this a great little phone as it does everything a PDA should and it fits perfectly in to my busy life style. may include affiliate links to featured products.
