I like brands that take the road less travelled – like Be Genki. With most beauty products there is a lot of fluff and not much substance. Be Genki on the other hand takes a holistic view and advocates wellness on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. After all, ‘genki’ is Japanese for being happy, healthy, positive and in harmony.

What initially piqued my interested was that their products are made from GM-free natural ingredients and contain no synthetic colours, fillers, fragrances, parabens, mineral oils or petrochemicals.Hallelujah! It’s their attitude though that has held my curiosity.

In fact, all summer I have been using the Be Genki Face Mist. Every time I pick it up and see the label it makes me think about what actually makes me happy. For me, it’s all about love. It’s being with the people I love. It’s spending time doing the things I love. And it’s my love of newness – new ideas, new people, new opinions, new experiences.

Interestingly, Dr Timothy Sharp from The Happiness Institute suggests there are some general principles for being happy, including:
  • being clear about your goals
  • living healthy
  • being positive but realistic
  • fostering key relationships
  • using your strengths
  • enjoying the moment
So, my friends – the million dollar question is, what makes you genki?
