Subtle, slim and at once sophisticated, each Vitae London timepiece is imbued with the premise behind their mission: “Time, and its opportunities, belongs to all of us, wherever we are in the world, we can live without limits.”

Along with charities on the ground, Vitae London are embracing the innovative spirit of some of the world’s most difficult to reach youth so they can make a difference. Read more about this inspiring journey here

“I thought I would wait a few months before leaving a review about the products. I am absolutely in love with the facial serum. It smells beautiful, it's light weight (so light it's perfect as a base for just a about any make up), leaves my skin feeling smooth and the single most consistent compliment I keep getting is that "you are glowing". I get this almost everyday, no word of a lie.⁣ ⁣ The mask smells divine, wish I could eat it sometimes. I love the products. ⁣ ⁣ I recommend all the products and I have found my facial routine for my continued glow up and youthful skin. And to top it off, it's black owned.”⁣ ~Miss E⁣ ⁣ We like to let the product reviews do the talking ✨ a huge thank you to those taking the time to share their WSB experiences. ⁣ ⁣ 📸: @aimeefelone ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #WildSeedBotanicals #BotanicalWhippedSheaButter #naturalskincare #greenbeauty #veganskincare #artisanbeauty #handmadeproducts #london #blackowned #ecobeauty #organicbeauty #organicskincare #greenbeautyblogger #london #madeinlondon #nontoxicskincare #skincarejunkie #nontoxicbeauty nontoxicbeauty #blackownedcleanbeauty #buyblack #blackownedskincare #womanowned #femalefounder #buyblack365⁣

I love these posts. Please do you have any recommends on Black-owned b&bs or hotels in U.K.? I am failing at researching these. Many thanks
