Don’t Miss This: A Night for Green Beauty NYFW!

Green beauty bloggers and enthusiasts are abuzz about an upcoming event for green beauty during New York Fashion Week in September. Hosted by the botanical ingredient-based skincare line, La Bella Figura, “A Night For Green Beauty” will be a pop-up event at James Corbett Studio on September 4th, 2013. Attendees will be able to shop, mingle with leaders from the organic beauty industry and get pampered with organic beauty makeovers and tips.

Just look at the list of amazing beauty and skincare brands that will be featured below! I’m such a fangirl of all these brands but a few I’m most excited about are Kjaer Weis, One Love Organics, ILIA Beauty, Kahina Giving Beauty and Lina Hanson.

I first learned about this event from The Chalkboard Mag and am beyond excited to attend. Not only will there be top Organic beauty and skincare brands to shop from (many of which I’ve been lusting to try) but I’m sure I’ll feel starstruck as some of my favorite green beauty bloggers and industry leaders will all be there!

I’ll be the one who’s wide-eyed, happy and with an armful of products…hopefully I’ll see you there!

I’ve definitely penciled this in as a “TO NOT MISS” event on my schedule! Will you be attending?

Pure Forever, a new luxury skincare line from 100% Pure

Note: This is not a sponsored blog entry of any sort, I was not influenced or paid by 100% Pure. I am just expressing my love and excitement for a brand I like! 🙂Image

A favorite natural beauty brand of mine, 100% Pure, has recently announced a new skincare line called, Pure Forever. This new line adds to the brand’s already-awesome arsenal of cosmetics and skincare products made from organic and naturally-derived ingredients. The mission of 100% Pure is to offer products that are “truly 100% pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.” The brand is also committed to being a vegan, cruelty-free brand that does not test on animals.

The Pure Forever line is marketed as the brand’s new luxury skincare products featuring a interesting lineup of facial scrubs, moisturizers, serums, eye creams and cleansers similar to the regular 100% Pure products however, with new ingredients, luxe packaging and higher price points. The Pure Forever line was unveiled last week on 100% Pure’s Facebook page: “We developed this line of luxury skincare products for purists without limits. These highly potent formulas are all natural, 100% vegan, and gluten free. Launching exclusively on our website & in 100% Pure retail stores only.”

Claiming to be highly potent, the new Pure Forever products definitely make me curious to try while the new ingredients and chic-er packaging surely has me itching to purchase something. With products such as “Matcha Green Tea Cleansing Foam”, “Vegetable Detoxing Facial Mask”, “Mushroom & Peptides Firming + Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream”, and “Pomegranate Moisturizer”, they almost seem to delicious to be true! With an increase of organic/natural luxury skincare and cosmetics that may not deliver in terms of benefits ( many only seem “luxurious” in packaging and pricing with no real benefits), I’m curious to see if 100% Pure delivers something different to the organic/natural stage.

Pure Forever products

The prices for Pure Forever products are a bit higher than their normal product line, starting at $32-$45 for facial cleansers/scrubs,  $45-$55 for eye creams, $48 for moisturizers, $65 for the anti-aging serum, and $58 for a night repair balm. Considering there are many high-end organic skincare lines out there, I think there are more expensive and often times less-effective products than 100% Pure products.

I’m excited to try a few of these new products and to see if the Pure Forever products truly are a potent, effective luxury skincare line. Unless you live near a free-standing 100% Pure Retail store, you can only snag some of these online.
