Minimalism for Makeup Purists: Gressa Skin Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation

GFoundation2 One of the things I love most about green beauty is the unique innovation involved in creating healthy, cutting-edge products. I admire green beauty brands that constantly bridge the gap between high-quality makeup and beneficial skincare. One such brand is Gressa Skin. I’ve loved Gressa since the beginning with their gentle and pure skincare products. Now, the brand has an outstanding full line of cosmetics: Minimalist Glamour featuring liquid foundation, liquid contouring serum, liquid highlighter, and their bestselling Lip Boosts (my review here).

While visiting my sister in Portland a few months ago, I also met up with Gressa’s founder, Svetlana for coffee. It was so fun to meet her in person and chat about everything from her company’s story to everyday life, and she kindly gave me a bag of goodies, including the new Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation* to try.  While I don’t usually wear foundation everyday, I was definitely curious about these new products especially with their claims to be high-quality, pigmented, and full of nourishing, healing botanical extracts.

Belated Birthday & Blogiversary Giveaway with Gressa Skin!

August 2nd marked my birthday, I’m a year older (ack!) and now it’s nearing the end of August and summer (agh). And actually, did you know Plein Vanity reached it’s 1 year anniversary in late June? I’ve been so crazed with work, my personal life, and day-to-day things that the date somehow slipped by without much fanfare.

I am so grateful and humbled for being a part of the green beauty community and for growing an audience of like-minded individuals. Thank you so much for continuing to read Plein Vanity and inspiring me to keep doing what I love. I’ve grown so much in a year and this blog has developed into a medium of creativity, passion, and community that I’d never imagined. Thank you! 🙂
