MIMI Skincare ~ "great results"
Our testimonials say it all. We don't believe in marketing hype, so check out what other customers say about each product, just click here and scroll down. With MIMI Kits, you can create professional-standard skincare in your own home. It's simple, quick and fun.
100% Natural Ingredients
There are several skincare brands on the market claiming they are natural - but does that mean a little bit natural, or totally?
Here at MIMI, we’re proud to say that all our products are 100% natural. Ordinary, ready-made creams are packed with a lot of water and synthetic ingredients, and at risk of spoiling.
But because MIMI products are made fresh by you in small quantities there's no need for synthetic preservatives, so we’re totally paraben-free.
It might sound like a bit of a faff, or too complicated, and some people think they're too busy to try it but they're wrong...
We've worked really hard to make sure that MIMI is quick, simple and fun to make at home.
Here are 10 more reasons why you'll love it
1. It's fresh
If you're going to put something on your skin, you want it to be as fresh as possible. It's the same with the food you eat.
The only way to ensure your skincare is fresh is by mixing it yourself. Nearly all ordinary face, hair and body products include water (you’ll see ‘aqua’ listed first on the ingredients list). However, water doesn't stay fresh. So the moment you add water, the product will start going off. The cheapest way to prevent a product from going off is to pack it full of cheap synthetic preservatives such as parabens.
Not only do you make MIMI products fresh, but we also pack all our Kits in small batches.
Our Kits come with recommended use by dates not longer than 6 months, so you know you’re using it as fresh as possible. Natural ingredients contain vitamins (antioxidants) that help keep them fresh without the need for synthetic preservatives.
2. Natural ingredients
Making your own skincare is the only way to ensure your products contain 100% natural ingredients.
Cosmetic giants prefer to manufacture synthetic ingredients for use in their products because they cost a fraction of the price of natural ingredients. Many of the synthetic ingredients you find in ordinary creams and lotions mimic their natural derivative. With MIMI you know you’re using real natural ingredients that you can see, smell and touch.
3. Easy & Quick
As a busy person, this is really important to me - if I don’t have time to make my own, how can I expect you to!
I've created products that do not require complex processes or lots of time – it takes less than 5 minutes to mix any MIMI product, and with most of them you only mix it up once and then store it somewhere handy. MIMI is simple enough for anyone, even the busiest professional or mum of three. There’s no complex melting, heating, stirring, and no fuss at all. Just simply mix your product in minutes. The Kits are specially designed to make all this easy, with mixing pots, and simple instructions.
Green Goddess: 3 minutes, mix this face mask fresh every time
Sleeping Beauty: 5 minutes, mix this facial oil only once and store in 35ml bottle, use within one month
Sweet Cheeks: 5 minutes, mix this body rub only once, store in 150mls jar, use within one month
4. Your choice
Making your own skincare with MIMI allows you to decide which ingredients you want to use.
You get a selection of raw natural ingredients with each Kit. You also get simple instructions and special tips to help you choose which ingredients you use. You can also decide how much of each ingredient you use. With the Sleeping Beauty facial oil and Sweet Cheeks body rub you can start off with one selection of ingredients and then top up your bottle or jar in a couple of weeks with the remaining ingredients.
Your skin is unique - you can tailor MIMI products to best suit your skin type.
With the unique ability to choose which ingredients you use, comes the ability for you to personalise your product. Unlike ordinary face and body products, you decide based on your personal preferences exactly how you want your end product to be.
You can take back control of what goes on your skin - you don't have to be a passive consumer.
Never before have you been able to control what goes into your face and body products. Unlike ordinary face, hair and body products, you can control how much of each ingredient you use, and see exactly what's gone into it.
Skincare made by someone you can trust -You.
One of MIMI's original testers in 2013 said ‘I can see and trust what’s gone into my product, and I love that’. With all MIMI products you can see all the ingredients carefully packaged in the Kit. You can smell them too, for example the essential oils come in little vials so you can decide if you like the blended aroma, and choose how much of it to use in your product or, if you prefer, create an unscented product. For Sweet Cheeks, before deciding how coarse you want to make your body rub, touch and compare the different textures of the three exfoliants that come in the Kit.
8. Sensuous & Fun
Making it a whole lot of fun without the hassle.
From the moment you open a MIMI Kit your sense are delighted and you just want to get creative. It’s never been possible to create your own skincare products at home by simply mixing natural ingredients together. No more do you have to search for recipes online or track down hard-to-find ingredients for a face mask or body rub. MIMI kits provide everything you need (all the ingredients, mixing equipment, storage jars/ bottle, simple instructions) so you can relax and have fun mixing it up.
9. "I did it!" Sense of achievement
Do you love the buzz of creating something special?
Remember the last time you made something – a cake for a friend’s birthday, cooked a meal from scratch, crafted a gift card? (forget how much time they take, that’s irrelevant as you mix MIMI products in minutes). But do you remember the warm buzz you got from making that thing, the sense of satisfaction, the sense of achievement? With every MIMI product you get that. Every time.
10. "Make It Forward" Perfect for gifting
Everyone loves a gift that's been made especially for them.
The choice is yours: you can keep your Kit all to yourself- it’s hard to give away something so lovely, especially if you’ve not tried it yet. Or you can buy the Kit as a gift for someone – they’ll love you for it. Or you can go the extra mile and mix up your MIMI product and gift that to a special friend or loved one – this option is for the big-hearted, as once you’ve made it you’ll probably want to use it.
It’s what you make of it…
