Meet Marie

Born in Quebec, Marie arrived in France 14 years ago.

Mother of two, Marie became fully aware of the magic of the body and the importance of healthy eating during her first pregnancy. At the same time, she was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma of the face (skin cancer). She realized the fragility of our skin, the one that envelops and protects us and especially the importance of giving it special attention and a lot of love.

Thus was born her passion for natural well-being in general, (aromatherapy, healthy food, organic food supplement, etc.) and more particularly the art of aging well naturally. Today, Marie is a facialist in Aix-en-Provence. Passionate about facial massage techniques, she became a pupil of master Dr Shogo Mochizuki of the KOBIDO® school and specializes in the art of Kobido massage. This ancestral art allows to sublimate the face and fight against the aging of muscles and skin. Marie also trained with the Académie des Facialistes in Paris as well as Phiane Duquet facialist of international renown to develop several massage techniques and constantly improve her know-how.

Marie is our "in house" facialist. She shares her expertise and has developed for BOTANISTS' simple and ultra effective rituals to take care of your skin every day.
