One of my best friends, Nicole, and I have shared love for beauty, fitness, fashion and health, so whenever we discover a new brand that complements our regimen, we make sure to let each other know. On a brisk night this April at Ellery's Greens in The West Village, Nicole told me about an incredible British brand called Organic Pharmacy. She had just discovered the store tucked away in the streets of Greenwich Village and was impressed by the quality ingredients.
About a month later, she and I took a jaunt to Paris and London, and I was sure to stock up on products in one of their London stores. I could have bought the entire store but I did not want to deplete my bank account on all beauty products, as the fashion in London and Paris are a whole other level of fabulous.
I have very dry sensitive skin, so I have the proclivity to purchase very gentle and natural products that prevent redness, leaving me with soft, supple and (almost) flawless skin. Here is a list of the products that I swear by, all of which are available on BeautyKind.us, a website that donates 5% of every purchase to a charity of your choice. For example, my purchases go to American Cancer Society, a charity that I have been donating to regularly since 2011, with the advent of The Empowerment Bras from my deceased and beloved baby, BodyRock Sport, where for each mastectomy bra was purchased, I donated one to The American Cancer Society for breast cancer survivors who could not afford the "The World's First Fashionable Mastectomy Bra." Hearing from survivors about how happy their bra made them warmed my heart and reinforced my mission and wholehearted desire to enrich the lives of other women. So, although the company and bra are forever gone, my mission remains in tact.
Here is my favorite Organic Pharmacy Face Mask. For your first purchase on BeautyKind, you will receive a $50 gift card with a minimum order purchase of $75. All you have to do is enter THENOMADFASHIONISTA at checkout!
Buy now; thank me later!
(1) Honey and Jasmine Mask ($74):
This mask, which is made of evening primrose, honey, jasmine, rose hip and shea butter, is nothing short of amazing, not only giving your skin an instant glow but also satiating your nose (yes, it smells that good).
