OH so many health blogs out there. Get fitter, healthier, happier – just use these simple steps – IT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE.
I am a self confessed door mouse. I love my reading, my bath and my bed. I manage to walk 8,000 steps a day, but that’s it. Oh….and I really love my food. When I saw the founder of Imperfectly Pure Katie Robertson doing HIIT [for those of you who don’t know this stands for High Intensity Interval Training] I damn near fainted. Katie smiled at me, and asked me to look at the rest of the website, and I am so grateful I did.
80% Natural, 20% Naughty, 100% Wellness
Well that sounded right up my street, particularly the naughty bit.
Katie is also a fully qualified Personal Trainer, Spin teacher and Bikram Yoga Teacher living and working in London and just about to finish her official training as a nutritionist. She also gives one to one Wellness Consultations. A Wellness Consultation involves an extensive review of your medical history, lifestyle, diet, stress relief mechanisms, and exercise habits, as well as your wellness goals, expectations, and level of commitment to achieving your goals. This allows Katie to create short term wellness goals, which are both manageable and achievable for you. This will cover everything from exercise, nutrition, mastering you mind, and more!
I can honestly say there is something on there for everyone, and for seasoned food lovers like myself, I can reassure you, the emphasis is on being healthy…not thin. I have found quite a few things that have helped me out with my various health struggles. From Co Enzyme Q10 to help with energy, to delicious Cauliflower & Oregano bread [gluten free] The health benefits of Magnesium for PCOS, and nutrition advise if you happen to be pregnant. [And some exercise tips if you should feel inclined] After launching in July of this year, in a few short months she has gone from strength to strength and has ventured out to produce her own bespoke, plant based, organic skin care products. I was lucky enough to test out a toner and night time oil for her over the last 2 weeks.
My night oil is Soothing and Nourishing and contains:
- Borage Oil: very moisturising and encourages cell renewal. It is also anti-inflammatory
- Marigold Oil: good for sensitive skin and is also very soothing
- Jojoba Oil : nourishing and replenishing
- Plus essential oils of Turmeric, Rose & Lavender – 3 very special essential oils, great for inflammation, calming and female balancing (with the Rose)
My toner contains:
- Lavender – calming
- Chamomile – soothing
- Neroli – anti – ageing
Compared to the money I have spent over the years on skin care products that promise flawless skin, and being over 40, with skin that tends to be on the dry side, her products are not only very reasonably priced but honestly…just lovely for your skin. Katie will take details of your skin type and allergies before she creates anything for you, and of course ask for your personal preferences. I like her products so much, that apart from my beloved Argan Oil from Morocco, everything else has gone in the bin!
The toner is utterly refreshing and doesn’t make your skin feel tight after using it. The oil is quickly absorbed and doesn’t ‘sit’ on your skin. Both products are best applied after a bath or shower, and after light exfoliation [Katie can supply this too if requested] The next morning, my skin still feels soft and supple, and lasts throughout the day….what more could anyone want really! Also knowing that these products are completely plant based, organic, and without animal testing is also a huge bonus.
With the internet awash with health/wellness websites, I really urge you to check this one out. The right amount of positivity [without being OTT] and fully inclusive for everyone. I have learnt so much from the site in the last few months [my Co Enzyme Q10 arrived today in the post!] and my skin is looking fabulous. Katie has a real passion for what she does and posts regularly. She is also on hand for Bikram Yoga, Spin Classes [I have heart attacks just watching those!] and of course private sessions as a Personal Trainer. And don’t worry, she will work at whatever level you happen to be at.
You can find Imperfectly Pure at

As for me, I’m looking forward to ordering some more skin care products off her, and I might just get a one to one Wellness Consultation with her. Onwards and Upwards!
