Chipping Norton businesswoman develops eye-relieving masks for children
A Chipping Norton businesswoman has launched a new range of self-heating eye masks for children.
And to kick them off, she’s set up a competition that will send the lucky finder a golden ticket for a £2,500 trip to Lapland.
Serial entrepreneur and author Clare Anderson hid the grand prize in a box of her self-heating eye masks, known as Elf Eyes.
Clare, 47, started her home spa products company called Sensory retreatsin 2019. And as soon as her daughter Siena noticed her clever relaxing eye masks, she knew she wanted a version for kids.
Siena coined the name Elf Eyes, and mum Clare, who has been in the beauty industry for 30 years, decided to bring to life a line of distinctive red and green child-friendly wellness products.
The vegan collection now includes a relaxing pillow spray, pulse point oil, wooden magic wand and even a fantasy wellness novel for 5-10 year olds called The Lost Wish.
Clare said: “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is such an incredible story and for me the most magical part of the story has always been the tantalizing idea of finding the golden ticket.
“I always strive to give something back with all of my business ventures, partnering with charities, working with schools and building community connections.
“I wanted to bring some magic to families and what could be more magical than discovering a golden ticket and winning a trip to Lapland?
“Elf eyes are perfect for children over five. Little pixies everywhere will love kicking off their boots and chilling out with one of these wonderful self-heating eye masks that will transport you from fun-filled festivities to heavenly relaxation.
“Hidden inside one of the packs is a golden ticket that will take a family on an adventure beyond their wildest dreams.”
Beauty industry entrepreneur Clare, who has lived near Chipping Norton for 12 years, started her career as a beautician for Champneys and Clarins, before working her way up to a national post in the sales for Decleor & Carita. In 2008, Clare’s company, Shared Beauty Secrets, introduced luxury spa product Lava Shells to the UK and Ireland under an exclusive license. The original self-heating, biodegradable massage tool is now used in over 2,000 high-end spas.
