Julie Parsons reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I spent an awesome day with the lovely friendly Alison learning how to make skincare products. There was so much to take in but Alison was so patient with me, keeping the pace to match my need. I got to make facial oil, toner, cleansing balm and moisturiser. Since doing the course I have really enjoyed using what I made, my skin is positively blooming. I cherished having ‘me’ time outside of my usual hectic schedule. I thoroughly recommend doing this course. I will certainly be back when my products run out. Award 5***** ❤️"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Julie. I am so pleased you enjoyed your "me time" in the workshop and that you're enjoying using your products. I look forward to your next visit and in the meantime if you have any questions regarding your products please dont hesitate to contact me."

"I had a lovely day at the skincare work shop, there was a lot of information to take in at that time, but slowly I am processing it in. I liked making lip balm, lotion, face oil, especially the rose toner I made it smells really lovely. Everything was explained to me. Allison is very knowledgeable and she was very helpful to me. I just wish she was near to where I am in Birmingham. The workshop has given me lots of ideas. I plan to visit the workshop again in the near future."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Shabana, thank you for your lovely review and I'm so glad you enjoyed your day and the products you made and are feeling inspired. I'm looking forward to welcoming you back to the workshop and please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions."

"I had such a fantastic day with Allison. The setting is picturesque, I felt so relaxed and at home in her fantastic workshop. Allison has an extensive knowledge which she conveys really well. I have already ordered everything I will need to begin making my own products and can’t wait to put my skills to use. Thank you Allison!"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you so much for the lovely review Luka. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your day in my workshop. It was a pleasure to meet you and be a part of your journey. I look forward to hearing about your new product creations as I know they will be a great success. Best wishes for the future."

Judy reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I had an excellent day with Allison - she is really well versed in the technical side of making your own cosmetics but she made it very easy to understand. We had a lovely day and I would recommend the experience to any one with an interest in the subject or just wanting an interesting day out. I have a specific interest in re-creating a product that is no longer available and although it was not part of the course Allison has done a lot of research into what I might need and how to go about replicating it. Thank you so much."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you so much for your review Judy and I'm so pleased you enjoyed you day in the workshop, it was definitely a fun day. I do hope you enjoy using the range of products you made and look forward to hearing from you when your own formulating project is complete. Best wishes for the future"

Julie reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"Spent a very enjoyable day learning all about oils, actives and preservatives. Made amazing products to take home together with a comprehensive workbook so I can continue this exciting craft. There’s nothing better than making my own cleansers, balms, creams/lotions and facial oils, knowing exactly what’s gone in them, tailored to what my skin needs. Allison is extremely knowledgeable and passionate in the subject which makes the experience first class."

"The day spent with Allison was most enjoyable. It was a full day covering all aspects of making skincare products. She is very knowledgeable and is happy to share that knowledge in an easy to understand way which allowed me to make not only a facial oil but also a balm, moisturiser and toner. A one to one experience not to be missed. Thank you Allison for a great day."

"This is a wonderful experience for anyone wanting to know more about organic skincare and you come away with a bespoke facial products that look and smell absolutely divine. Allison is a passionate and resourceful teacher, who has a wonderful store cupboard full of the most amazing ingredients. Any question you throw at her, she can answer! The 1to1 teaching is so beneficial, Allison boosts your confidence and guides you step-by-step through the product making process. I am so pleased with my products, I keep looking at them with great pride! Thank you for a wonderful day and your patience and kindness."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

Claire reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"Allison is generous with her vast knowledge, (which somehow she distilled into informative bite size chunks),....her time and her friendship. She goes above and beyond to make the day special for you, even staying in touch to help you get even more from the day. The products she helps you to make are really lovely, feeling all the more special for having made them. If Allison sold a starter kit, I would have definitely bought it from her, although she provides all her trusted suppliers......you everything you need to know to get started. Thank you for a wonderful day and the knowledge to make some great skincare products."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Claire. I’m so glad you enjoyed your day in the workshop and love the products you made. It was a fun day! A starter kit is a great idea and i will definitely consider your idea going forward. Best wishes, Allison"

Debbie Williams reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"An extremely enjoyable day spent with Allison learning how to make organic skincare products. She is such a natural teacher with a great passion for her subject that she imparts freely in a friendly and relaxed way. The products made are lovely on my skin. She even helped me make products for my daughter, which was so kind of her. She goes out of her way to make the day enjoyable and you come away with so much information and a will to carry on making the products for yourself. I learnt so much and it felt like spending the day with a friend."

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you Debbie for your lovely review. I’m so glad you enjoyed your day and are enjoying using the products you made for yourself and I’m sure your daughter will love the products you made for her too. Its exciting that you feel inspired to continue to make products for yourself in the future and you’re very welcome to visit the workshop next time your in Norfolk. Best wishes for the future. Allison"

Stephanie reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"My partner and I completed a course with Alison back in February to gain a better understanding on how to make cosmetic products for launching our own business venture. From the moment of enquiry Alison was brilliant. We had a lot of communication prior the course as Alison wanted to get an understanding of what we wanted to gain from the course so she could tailor it more to our requirements. The course was fantastic, we first had a theory lesson to get a good understanding of formulas and essential oils. There is a lot to take in but Alison is extremely well prepared and her knowledge is second to none and she is excellent at passing on her knowledge while keeping the course both interesting and fun. The second part of the day we did the practical side of things and made many lotions and potions. The products that we made were excellent and became my only skin care as they were so good! The day flew by and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't imagine a better teacher than Alison so if you're wondering whether or not to book this course, my advice is to stop thinking about it and book it! You will not regret it! Brilliant."

Carolyn reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"I enjoyed my day with Alison. The morning is a lot of information - there is science and maths and these are not my strong points! I was really pleased with the products that I made in the afternoon. I think that Alison 'misses a trick' - she should have some products for people to buy. I would have brought a few more! I am hoping that one day we will laugh about us wearing masks and gloves but that doesn't seem likely at the moment - I see on her website that she has decided to close for a couple of months, so please book for later in the year!"

"What a fantastic, fun filled day my friend and I had with Allison making lotions and potions. Allison was friendly, accommodating and shared her knowledge of making homemade beauty products. The workshop was very well stocked and we were able to choose the types of skincare products to suit our skin. The ingredients were of high quality and after using them at home, I must say my skin feels lovely. I will definitely be making my own at home with the help of a very informative handbook Allison gave us. We absolutely loved the day and have recommended to friends who may be interested in making their own skincare products."

"I attended a full day workshop with Allison in August. What an incredibly inspiring day it was. I left feeling so excited about the possibilities and this was all down to Allison’s passion and enthusiasm for sharing her knowledge. It was the most beautiful setting, I instantly felt relaxed and Allison put me at ease instantly with her warmth and interest. I felt like I’d had a day with a good friend. I learnt recipes ranging from instant, easily replicable ones to slightly more challenging ones. All the results were exceptional and I got to make products that smell exactly to my taste. Allison even gave me so many more recipes to go and try at home. I’d recommend this course to anyone thinking about trying to reduce and reuse their packaging, wanting cheaper alternatives to products on the market, anyone wanting to make gorgeous, usable gifts for friends and family, or anyone simply wanting to have a lovely, inspiring day with great company."

The day is full of information and we went away having made lots of different types of products and I feel confident I will be able to make them again.

Ceara Mongan reviewed: 1-1 organic skincare workshops in Norfolk

"I really cannot recommend Allison's workshops enough!!! I have attended two different cosmetics workshops in the Norfolk area, and this course by far was hands down the best!!! You really couldn't even compare the two!!! Alison has so much passion and knowledge to give, and provides in depth cosmetics knowledge, both in the area of ingredients and the business side. She continues to fully support me to this day, which is such a beautiful thing for her to do!!! I came away with lip balms, facial oils, lotions and toners, and had beautiful goodies to hand out to my whole family! Which were all thoroughly loved. Looking forward to seeing Allison again!"

Caroline Channing reviewed: 1-to-1 Organic skincare workshop at Maid in the Meadow

"We recently booked Alison of Maid in the Meadow to provide a lip balm making workshop at our local village hall for a group of 14 ladies. We all had a wonderful time, learned lots about natural skin care products, and went home with some lovely handmade lip balms and facial oils. Alison went above and beyond in terms of the amount of effort she put into making this a thoroughly enjoyable, informative and entertaining morning for us all. In fact, we had such a great time that we have already booked Alison to come back and teach us how to make more products to give to friends and family as Christmas presents!"

Maid in the Meadow responded:

" Thank you for the lovely review Caroline and also for the very warm welcome I received from all the ladies who attended the workshop. I’m really looking forward to my return visit later in the year."
