Our mission for the Escentual blog is to bridge the gap between you and our beautiful products, giving you all of the information that you need to feel really happy with your purchase. Stick with us for behind the scenes insight into the latest and greatest in beauty - we can't wait to take you along for the ride!

CERYN - Content Assistant

Beauty has always been my ‘thing’ since I learnt what a lipstick was. There’s nothing I love more than being in my little beauty bubble, whether I’m writing, watching YouTube tutorials or filling my arms with swatches. One of my favourite things to do is recommend makeup, skincare and fragrance to my friends, and that’s exactly what I intend to do here on the Escentual blog. With so many new launches, ingredients and trends the world of beauty can get a little overwhelming so I am on hand to test, trial, swatch and report back to you!

CHELSEY - Social Assistant

A true addict when it comes to EVERYTHING skincare, make-up and fragrance, my passion for the industry stems back to the day of my sweet 16th when I landed my first beauty role and from there on out, I’ve been head over heels in lust with the industry. A self-confessed cosmetics junkie, I wouldn’t have my dressing table any other way. Constantly on the pry for innovations that work, I love nothing more than telling everyone and anyone who’ll listen about a product that’s about to change their life. So if you fancy a chit-chat, I’ll be hanging out over on the Escentual Twitter page, come & say hi!

THOMAS - Fragrance Blogger/Expert

I think it's fair for me to describe myself as a complete and utter perfume nerd, I am literally obsessed with olfaction and nothing makes me happier than sampling and writing about fragrance for my blog (The Candy Perfume Boy) and Escentual. There's a lot of perfume out there and at times it can become a bit confusing, but I'm always keeping my eye (and nose) out for interesting and unusual smells so I'll be keeping you up to date with the latest fragrance news and keeping you in the loop with everything you need to know to get the most out of your experiences with fragrance.
