Florence by Mills: The Brand for ‘This’ Generation
Jun. 18, 2020
Beauty is associated with the choices made by each generation which is why it is different for every generation. Today, I would like to introduce my peers to a brand that needs no introduction. The brand is highly successful and has plenty of leverage attached to its name. You don’t need to tell it to someone twice (unless they are hard of hearing) and you definitely won’t see someone saying 'no' to one of their unique products. It’s none other than Florence by Mills. Beauty is said to be skin deep, but it is actually much more than that; at least that’s what is the founding principle of Florence by Mills. To them, beauty is an expression, an expression of who you are, how you feel, what you want to say; it’s just you, you and you.
Florence by Mills:
As they say on their website:
“Clean skincare and beauty, created for us by one of our own”
Florence by Mills prides itself with not, in fact, never using any kind of parabens, sulfates, dyes, animal by-products or testing their products on animals. In short, they like to keep it clean. They do, however, prefer to use ingredients that are highly beneficial and good for the skin, including vitamins, antioxidants, and botanicals that work their magic skin deep and bring out that natural glow you long for showing on your face.
Florence by Mills works hard to create safe and effective products that are truly revolutionary and work their magic that is visible in a short amount of time. Their products are designed to be suitable for all skin types and free of any synthetic fragrance. To them, it is more about feeling good than looking good; to be free and true to yourself with your skin speaking for itself.
About Millie Bobby Brown:
Bobby Millie Brown (Mills) who has had the experience of sitting in hundreds of makeup chairs to have her face decorated in a variety of ways, she discovered that it is not about following the same old boring beauty tutorials and standard procedures to give yourself that standardized look which makes everything bleak and common.
So she decided to make something which as she says, is made by love, to express yourself. She named the brand Florence after her great-grandmother, a strong and powerful woman who did what she pleased. Inspired from the liberating attitude of her great-grandmother, Millie named her brand after her.
At its heart, the brand encourages defining beauty on your own terms, without any rules, regulations, or a struggle towards perfection. Just play around just as you please while looking your best, just the way you would like to see yourself. They have designed the products such that they are easy to apply, clean, and fun to use. On top of that, Millie made the entire range quite affordable for everyone so they can experiment as much as they please and be happy with what they have created.
Set out to redefine beauty for Gen-Z, Florence has offered in its range essential products that are specifically for changing and growing skin. The idea is to create better options that make a more inclusive beauty culture.
The range was launched with 9 skincare essential products that encourage experimentation and discovering what suits ‘you best’. Currently, with over 15 products in the range, Florence proudly claims for all their products to be dermatologically tested and infused with essential vitamins and minerals to help your skin getting nourished while you are on the go.
On top of that, all their products are cruelty-free (PETA and vegan certified). The range is designed with her generation in mind, so Bobby Mille made sure that her entire range is simple, easy to use, balancing, and priced to be affordable.
Among the most notable products offered by Florence by Millie, the one worth mentioning is:
Swimming Under The Eye Gel Pads:

These whale-shaped eye pads are soaked in the soothing and hydrating essence that is both rejuvenating and hydrating. It freshens up the entire face and gets rid of those puffy eyes that help you get back to the present.
Hopefully everyone will love this piece just as much we love our favorite young TV star, Bobby Millie Brown. Be sure to give your feedback and share your own experiences if you have used Florence by Millie before.
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?
this isn't a lipstick 👀💋
I did a little video with some of my favorite reds a little while ago, but I feel like NYX - Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp deserves its own post! It's glossy, pigmented, AND affordable... we love to see it! 🙌🏾
THE EASIEST BUN!
Life gets busy, hair gets greasy, and sometimes you just need a hairstyle that is out of your way but still so simple and cute. Here is the easiest low bun ever! ✨put your hair into a bun but don’t pull all the way through ✨take the tail, wrap around the scrunchie and tuck in the bottom THATS IT! I said it was easy didn’t I?! Give this a try💗 Xo, Johanna
Why I Decided to Ditch My Clarisonic Brush
Back in the day, my clarisonic - MIA 2 FACIAL CLEANSING BRUSH was my go to. I started using it religiously (daily). Well, deciding that once a day was way too much to use an abrasive electronic brush on my face, I decided to only use it when needed. When I would use it here and there, almost every time I would breakout. I tried using brand new heads, replacing the heads regularly, etc. In contrast of my personal experience with this brush, much research is shown that these brushes can damage the acid mantle, protective film and natural oils, and amino acids that are on our skin. Abrasive skin tools to me were just a fad and now that we have come so far with knowledge on a healthy skin care routine, we should focus on products that effect the skins beauty from within by using appropriate ingredients that penetrate the skin and change it from the inside out. To me, a deep clean from a brush is not worth me breaking out. I would rather use a chemical exfoliant (such as The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ) or a gently microdermabrasion paste/wash (such as philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash ) when needed. What is the go to way to exfoliate your face? Also, has anyone had the same experience with Clarisonic brushes or face brushes in general?
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
