What does IWD mean to us? Thoughts & tips from the team.
We're so grateful to our team and proud of the amazing work they do professionally and personally. Cheers to us, to you, our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and all the female leaders paving the way for our girls who will grow into confident and empowered women!
To mark International Women's Day, we decided to celebrate the very women that make A bit Hippy the forward-thinking, conscious, cool and downright awesome (if we do say so ourselves) brand it is. Learn a bit about our amazing female team, their fave products and what IWD means to them.

Fave Product: Night Cream
Why? The cream itself is very light so it doesn’t feel heavy or oily on your face at all, and it rubs in so easily too! It also contains Hyaluronic Acid and calming Jojoba Oil and Marshmallow Root Extract for intense hydration and nourishment, making it a staple in my daily routine. You only need a pea-size amount for application too, which means it lasts a while.
Ash's Top Tip: Do yourself a favour and get your hands on our Cleanser for the ultimate duo. Cleanse your face (and body) in the shower, then apply the Night Cream on your face and décolletage (aka neck and top of your chest) before bed to buff and brighten your skin!
What does International Women's Day mean to you? It’s a day to celebrate women and all the wonderful things we have (and are yet) to achieve! A girlfriend once said to me ‘We can do it all, but we just can’t do it all at once.' and that’s really stuck with me. It’s a reminder to take time to reflect and more importantly to take time to rest and reset. We’re here to support one another; celebrate friendships and freedoms, and believe in ourselves. 🌻

Fave Product: Powder Exfoliant
Why? I love this product because it is gentle enough to use every day and keeps my pores clear without any harsh scrubbing. As someone with blemish-prone skin this has been a game-changer for me! Simply shake a small amount into your palm and mix with a few drops of water to form a paste, apply to your face, leave on for a few minutes and then wash off.
Holly's Top Tip: I keep this in the shower and use daily to keep my skin smooth, glowy & blemish-free.
What does International Women's Day mean to you? It's a celebration of all women coming together and celebrating being women! It's also a great reminder for me to try to celebrate it every day, sometimes just by simply telling the women in my life I appreciate them or reminding them of some of the impressive things they have achieved!

Fave Product: Cleanser
Why? This product is a shower and sink essential! I use it to cleanse my face morning and night, plus it takes care of all the rest of the washing and shaving business too. It leaves my skin feeling so fresh and so clean, without any dreaded dryness. Compliments to the chef. 😉
Saskia's Top Tip: For makeup-wearing days, use the Oil Cleanser first and then follow with this cleanser. Panda eyes begone!
What does International Women's Day mean to you? For me, this day celebrates and recognises the incredibly unique power that all women have within them. Especially when we are supported in speaking our truth and listening to our own inner knowing. It’s also an excuse to be blast Vera Blue’s Lady Powers extra loud.
Paige - Warehouse Packer
Fave product: Powder Exfoliant (This baby's a best seller for a reason!)
Why? This is a great product to wash the day away and leave your skin fresh, revived and ready for bed!
Paige's Top Tip: Use this Exfoliant as a face mask. Simply add water to the powder and you'll have a paste that's the wonderful consistency for an exfoliating mask!
What does International Women's Day mean to you? International Women's Day is a day to reflect on the historic achievements so many women have made over the years while acknowledging the powerful women in your life.

Carmel - Online Brand Manager
Fave Product: Shampoo
Why? Swapping to a natural Shampoo felt way too daunting at first. But all my friends were green with envy when I made the switch to this earthy, green concoction!
I have thick hair that gets greasy quick. And I've never found a natural hair care range that can deliver on my demands. Until now, that is! Reliable, colour-safe and nourishing, a triple threat that I turn to time and time again!
Carmel's Top Tip: If you have thick, or greasy hair, I recommend shampooing twice. Once I started doing this, I never looked back! Wash one washes away dirt and excess oils, while wash two gets right in there and gives your hair the cleansing it truly deserves.
What does International Women's Day mean to you? For me, International Women's Day is an opportunity to reflect on the amazing opportunities women have given me. From my mum, my nans, cousin, female school teachers, employers and mentors to remind myself to pass on those opportunities to younger women in my life who could a little extra support. We're all in this together!
