We are Fais, a multi-award winning, London based self-care brand. We hand craft vegan skincare and home fragrances in small batches whilst trying to reduce the negative impact on our environment. We believe that everyone can achieve beautiful, healthy skin and a calmer mind with the help of botanical ingredients and luxurious self-care routines. Our products have been featured in the Sunday Times, The Independent and the Green Parent Magazine.

Founder Marina has previously worked in a high pressured advertising job in the city. As part of her day job, she served clients within the beauty and lifestyle sector, which made her realise that there were only a handful of brands that offered natural, minimal but indulgent skincare and home fragrances collections. So she started to look for ways of how to create skincare and home items she would want to use herself.

The workshop is amazing!

The atmosphere is very friendly and chill. We learned a lot from Marina as a teacher armed with her “nose for the business”. She shared a lot of her wisdom and this is a great gift for people who would like to learn new things. At the end of the fun-filled two hours you get to go home with your own candle creation. Also, perfect avenue for meeting new people. Highly recommendable

Teacher's response

Dear Jonathan, thanks so much for joining this wonderful session! It was great to have you and I hope you will enjoy your customised candle for months to come.

This was a truly amazing experience and one which my team and I thoroughly enjoyed. Marina was a lovely host and teacher and taught us so much about what actually goes into making candles. The space in her home was well set out and comfortable, and the refreshments she provided were so good! We came away from this session with gorgeous smelling candles and a new found love of creating our own. I would definitely recommend booking this workshop!

Tolga Mar 2023

It was a very entertaining session and our instructor Marina was very welcoming - she prepared loads of beverages, snacks for us to feel at home. We learned a lot about candle making process, different smell notes and made our own candle as a final product!

Katja Ahola Mar 2023

Both me and my boyfriend really enjoyed Marina's workshop. She's super knowledgeable about aromatherapy, essential oils and natural products in cosmetics and candle making, and I left the class with a lot of insight and inspiration to start using aromatherapy for my own wellbeing. The candle making and blending the scents itself was really fun and she gave a lot of good guidance to help everyone along the way, and in the end we all parted with a beautiful homemade candle. Her home is also beautiful and perfect setting for the class, with some nice snacks and tea/coffees available too.

Marina was delightful and so so lovely! We learnt so much not just about candle making but also about the “behind the scenes” of distributing them. The candles we made smell fantastic and we can’t wait to burn them! Will definitely recommend xx
