I love the thrill and the joy derived from discovering new beauty products, so for today’s installment of beauty news, I wanted to bring you a multitude of products and brands to explore.
Votre Vu‘s French handcrafted, professional grade products includes a vast array of items designated for each skin condition, and one designated for men, as well as innovative color cosmetics. Travel light with the Love Me Deux Moisture Tint and Concealer, $43, condensed into one specially designed tube and includes ingredients such as sunflower and jojoba oils, aloe vera, honeysuckle extracts and French kaolin clay.
I’m also loving the Beauté En BronzeTantalizing Bronzer Duo, $34, which combines both blush and bronze into one sleek compact, and the Vu-On Rouge Sheer Moisture Color Accent for Lips and Face, $29, available in three universal colors and the perfect tint for on-the-go color.
Antonym, the only ECOCERT certified line of natural and organic makeup is free of all of the potentially bad stuff, such as parebens, synthetic fragrances, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, and is cruelty free, founded by pro makeup artist Valerie Giraud. Even the packaging is designed with eco-friendly and sustainable materials such as bamboo, making for an earth-friendly, and good looking makeup presentation. Organic products include the baked blush ($35), baked foundation ($36) waterproof eye pencils ($18), and my favorite, the Vegan Certified Makeup Brushes ($8-$30 each).
Juara, another product line that boasts paraben, fragrance, and artificial colorant-free products, wows with the amazing candlenut at the heart of many of its products, such as shower gel ($28), and body creme($35). The oil derived from the candlenut is high in essential fatty acids and is ultra hydrating, popular in Indonesian spas and moisturizes without becoming too thick or greasy. Other bestsellers from the brand include a coffee body scrub, rice facial cleanser, and the natural soy and vegetable oil-based Hope Candle.
Leonor Greyl is a pioneer of natural hair care, and the best way to sample what the brand has to offer is with the Holiday Gold Collection ($169), which includes the Shampoo Reviviscence and Masque Quintessence (deep repairing shampoo and conditioner with vitamins B&C, sea lavender, cupuacu and manketti oils), and the travel-size Huile Secret de Beaute (a hair and body oil with Amazonian buriti, pomegranate seeed, and mongongo oils). Search by hair or product type to find more items by Leonor Greyl that suit your hair needs, which include special sets, travel size options, combs and brushes, and hair needs for men.
