2017 was an UNBELIEVABLE year for us at The Green Vanity! We officially relaunched ourselves in Kelowna as a Holistic Beauty Lounge and we are so thrilled that you are all embracing that the road to discovering beauty really is much larger conversation than simply buying MORE products.
In a time where the important choice to be sustainable, LESS IS MORE! We wanted to share our clients top picks for 2017!
We saw lots of these go out the door of our Kelowna boutique (and lots of empties come back to our recycle program too!!).
1. Elate Mascara | Elate Cosmetics
My Kelowna clientele LOVE recommending Elate Mascara to their friends because it is ALLL the things! I was a Dior Show girl for years and thought that there was NO way I was ever going to find a clean mascara that would bring me the same happiness and sweepy lashes that I had become addicted to (as both a client and a pro).
REJOICE my fellow mascara snobs. This one hits ALL the happy spots. Vegan. Ethical. Toxin-free and WATER RESISTANT. This wonderfully fluid mascara builds volume without clumping and can keep up with life without leaving you looking trash panda.
As if you need any more reasons to love it, this Canada cosmetic based brand is showing up as a leader in the zero-waste movement. Luxury has a new face. Bring it Elate!! We LOVE you!!
2. Sola Deodorant | Sola Skincare
Sola Deodorant seriously challenges all deodorants. Don’t let the little can fool you! The Green Vanity (and our Kelowna clientele) have fondly dubbed this little organic wonder our little unicorn. There is so much to say about it I actually wrote a blog about it! Read our B.O. and Finding a Unicorn : A Natural Deodorant to learn more about how it REALLY Works!
3. Beaute Divine Cleansing Oil | Corpa Flora
So many clients are leveling up to Corpa Flora’s Beaute Divine Cleansing Oil and the benefits of ritual cleansing rather than routine washing! Our Kelowna clients aren’t only embracing this wonderful organic skin care practice, but they are sharing it with the people they love.
Cleansing doesn’t have to be a chore, it can be a beautiful part of your end of day celebration! Seriously, it can be as gratifying as taking off your bra after a long day! This one of a kind, award winning formula rates in at an epic 74.5% organic and has the power to deeply clean your skin and remove your make-up (even waterproof!). Trying to be more sustainable? Beaute Divine works double duty as a luxurious shaving oil for face or body! One product replaces makeup remover, cleanser and shaving products!
4. Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum | Viva Health
Our climate need moisture magnets, some days we can practically feel the hydration being sucked out of our skin. Needless to say, any of you that come to the boutique for a consult have heard me talk about the importance of supplementing more of these magical water sponges to our skin.
What makes Viva’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum special is that it is a TRIPLE THREAT with the water loving benefits of the following:
- Glycerin- Renowned for its dual action, its no wonder we find it in so many skin care products. It’s benefits are simultaneously protective and hydrating. Glycerin lays a water magnet layer across the skin, filling in the dry cracks supporting the skin barrier function while preventing the irritation cause from dehydrated skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid- a 100% natural ingredient, extracted from a vegetable similar to a wild yam. This key ingredient acts like a sponge, drawing moisture in, resulting in skin that glows.
- Panthenol (aka pro vitamin B5) stabilizes the skin barrier function, reducing the amount of water lost through the skin.
Voila! Not only have you increased your skin’s hydration but made it softer and improved it’s elasticity!
5. Mad Hippie Vitamin C | Mad Hippie
Cocktails are for more than Friday night. Mad Hippie mixed up a multiple beauty award winning “Glow Getter” (In Style Magazine) Vitamin C Serum that offers a very powerful, stable and bioavailable Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) paired with Hyaluronic Acid, Konjac Root Powder (works as a barrier and is LOADED in nutrients like copper, zinc, phosphorus, fatty acids, protein, carbohydrates, lipids, potassium, magnesium, iron, niacin, folic acid & vitamins A, E, C, D & B) and the calming and protective benefits of Chamomile extract.
THANK YOU for an AMAZING 2017 and for trusting our team! We are so honoured to be helping you along the way!
