New & Notable Beauty

Spring is alive with some new and very notable beauty releases. Some fantastic green beauty brands have debuted some fabulous new products that have certainly piqued my curiosity. Here is a look at some of those covetable new releases.

New-and-Notable-Beauty

The luxurious and innovative green beauty brand Kjaer Weis, just released a new bronzer called Dazzling. I had the chance to sample this new addition at the BeauTeaBar Grand Opening event. The luminous finish reminded me somewhat of their Radiance Highlighter, but in a natural bronze shade. There is also a new eyeshadow called Grace, which is a very wearable, semi-matte mocha shade, suitable to all skin tones. If you are familiar with the KW eyeshadow formula, it is exquisitely buttery smooth. A vibrant pink blush, called Happy, also made a debut. It is said to be their “most pigment blush yet.”

One Love Organics had a recent brand makeover and additionally made some slight tweaks to their existing products. With the brands new look came some new products to covet, including the Coconut + Salt Mineral Body Lotion and Gardenia + Tea Body Serum. The ‘Vitamin Collection’ from the Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics also introduced a new Vitamin C Body Polish, a sugar based body scrub featuring a highly concentrated combination of Vitamin C Ester, aloe, shea, and raw, organic sugar crystals.

Captain Blankenship just debuted several new beauty products that have certainly caught my attention. Not one, but two new face masks have joined the Captain Blankenship line-up and the ingredients already have me swooning. The Petal Gentle Flower Face Mask contains rose petals, hibiscus, french pink clay, manuka honey, chamomile, rose absolute and carrot seed oil to gently exfoliate and deeply cleanse for a radiant complexion. The Mermaid Detox Face Mask, contains french green clay, matcha tea, spirulina, bladderwrack, kelp, nettle, and the essential oils of ylang ylang, bergamot and lavender. There are also new bath salts, a natural bug repellent called Sail Away, an oil-based makeup remover, and the Ray of Light Sea Salt Sun Spray which creates beachy waves and contains essential oils to natural lighten hair when activated by the sun (a natural sun-in alternative?!).

I have been consistently coming across great praise for the Josh Rosebrook brand. Their Nutrient Day Cream has been receiving amazing reviews. I was able to try the Day Cream when I received a sample in a recent order. The consistency and texture are remarkable, not like anything I’ve come across before. The Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30 now comes in a tinted version that I am coveting, and at a more reasonable price tag.

Green beauty pioneer, RMS Beauty has released a new collection of “nudes.” The new Eye Polish, Myth, is a very wearable and beautiful metallic taupe. Two new Lip Shines also debuted, one called Moment, which is a neutral caramel brown shade created for the one and only Gisele, and Honest, a nude, dusty rose. RMS have also introduced two new face brushes that are both well made, soft, yet firm enough to blend creams. The skin2skin Foundation brush and skin2skin Blush Brush.
