Thick cozy sweaters, reading by the fire, warm drinks with friends, jewel toned clothing, what's not to love about the arrival of Autumn? We collaborated with our 124th Street neighbours, LUX Beauty Boutique, and their makeup artist, Cassidy Cooper. We also loved working with Justine Ma, founder of Justine Ma Design, as our stunning natural beauty. We are so pleased to bring you an Autumn green beauty ritual, to nurture and inspire you as we transition into the new season with eco-friendly, non-toxic, cruelty-free products.
The Pura Ritual
We start with Countess Cleansing Nectar, our lightweight and hydrating cleanser. Handcrafted with neroli, French lavender, frankincense, sweet orange and calendula. This combination of biocompatible oils, vitamins, and nutrients promotes luscious, radiant skin, fades sunspots and scars, diminishes fine lines and tones and tightens the skin, without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier. this non-greasy formula is ideal for normal to dry skin types. It leaves the skin feeling clean, supple and nourished.
To tone and hydrate the skin we use our Botanical Bloom Essence. This rejuvenating mist maintains the skin’s natural firmness with Vitamins C, E and Beta-carotene, while infusing the skin with long-lasting moisture and nutrients.
The Jade Face Roller enhances the skincare ritual by reducing puffiness, fine lines, improving blood circulation and simulating collagen for firmer, rejuvenated skin.
Neroli Eye Ritual preserves the eyes’ delicate skin tissue, minimizing expression lines, dark shadows and signs of fatigue.
Last but not least, Sweet Face a botanical blend of gentle emollients and nourishing oils will leave your skin ultra-hydrated and visibly well balanced. Soothing chamomile, decongesting clementine and antioxidant vanilla replenish moisture loss, calm inflammation and protect the skin from free-radical damage. Vitamin E, and skin-softening coconut and sweet almond oil, hydrates and improves the skin's texture, promoting a youthful dewy glow.
Next, Cassidy from Lux applied Justine's makeup, using contemporary organic makeup from Ilia, from Los Angelas, as well as Tata Harper and RMS, created by fashion makeup artist, Rose-Marie Swift.
