Made of Margate

9.20.2015 18 Cliff Terrace, Margate, Kent CT9 1RU, UK

People who will have visited the blog before might already be aware that I live just outside of the popular seaside resort Margate. Margates recent rise to fame has been encouraged by numerous factors. New Galleries, a vintage Theme Park, Artist Studios and of course independent stores have all been there to give the coastal town some extra attraction and charm.


At the forefront of these stores in Margate is Haeckels, a fragrance and skin care brand that uses some fascinating natural local ingredients to put together their products. With a concession in Selfridges, coverage in notable publications worldwide and a recent Pop Up shop at the Ace Hotel in London these guys have already made their unique mark on the industry. Having only been founded 3 years ago these Margate ambassadors seem to be doing something right, their products are pretty amazing and their presentation is flawless. Fronted by Dom Bridges, a film maker turned sea weed farmer, its well worth reading their interesting back story to get an insight into what they're up to. You only need to look at their website to fall in love with the brands ethos.

Seaweed and geranium hand balm from the coast of margate featured in my blog post

Victoria and I have been meaning to pass through their Margate store for ages now and after spending a day at Dreamland we decided to make our way up to their shop to pick up a couple of bits. I think the pair of us could have gone home with everything in the store. We resisted and picked up a hand balm and Lip Balm which will both definitely come in handy as the cold weather falls upon us. 

Review of Haeckels grooming products

Not only do they have purpose, but every product within their range has a story and an incredible scent to go with it... who knew seaweed could smell so good? We will definitely be returning to get our hands on more goods in the near future. If you want to get your hands on some produce from the margate coast line, head over to Haeckels website here and shop online or find the nearest place you can get hold of it.
