Top Brands to Try this #BLACKPOUNDDAY

The year 2020 has been a whirlwind. Now more than ever, it's a time to awaken, heal, and perfect the art of loving on ourselves and moving forward. Black Pound Day is an on-going community-driven initiative encouraging investment into black-owned businesses in the UK. This Saturday, 1st August, there are many ways to support the movement but the easiest is to share your favourite black-owned companies with everyone you know! 

At Yard + Parish, spreading the word about the best black-owned brands is a daily routine. We've done all the research for you by curating our 2nd Edition Yard + Parish Self-Care Sampler Set, allowing you to show your support for multiple UK black-owned brands with a single purchase. This box set is an extension of the Self Love Edit which features even more staff favourites as well. The set is curated to encourage us to awaken, heal, and perfect the art of loving ourselves. 

Here's are all the items included in the box: 

1.  TANAKA Soaps

Affordable luxury at it's finest, TANAKA Soaps makes handcrafted bars to target a variety of skin issues from pore clarifying to skin elasticity. Our recommendation:


This handmade soap invigorates the senses and gives you the most natural glow. It's so natural it can be used on the face AND body! This bar is a favourite because the Turmeric content is anti-inflammatory, deeply hydrating, and naturally brightens skin! Ginger Essential Oil boosts circulation and provides warmth that revives and eases muscle pain, promoting some much-needed relaxation. The Poppy seeds help to gently exfoliate the skin and make sure the best version of you can shine through.

For extra exfoliation we've included the Sisal Soap Bag. You can use this accessory with any bar of soap to turn your showers into a spa-like experience.
