We are loving the NEW Red Currant Rapid Infusion Mask from Eminence!  Our guests and Skincare Experts are raving about the effects of this mask in 2 Minutes or LESS!!!  This potent masque is perfect for people on the go as it promotes the look of elasticity and reveals a radiant glow.  AHA cocktail derived from a blend of pineapple, lemon, passion fruit and grape exfoliates the surface of skin leaving you with a perfectly even and smooth skin tone.  Our Summer Beauty Award Winner is a must have this season!!!

SELF MAGAZINE Agrees with our Green Spa Experts!!!  They NAMED OUR EMINENCE RED CURRANT RAPID INFUSION MASQUE A HEALTHY BEAUTY AWARD WINNER!

Self Magazine tried and tested thousands of beauty products in search of their 2014 Healthy Beauty Award winners. And, we’re excited to announce, our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque has won in the “Mask” category!

“Made of a combination of natural alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate—lemon, passion fruit, grape, pineapple—plus honey to nourish, it sounds like a smoothie but performs like a facial (just faster)” says Self Magazine’s April Franzino.

One of Self Magazine’s readers raved that our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque ”felt like a spa treatment at home, but only took two or three minutes to work” and she loved that her face “felt refreshed and rejuvenated, and appeared hydrated with more elasticity”.

Thanks Self!

It’s that time of year where snowflakes and the polar vortex seemed like they never happened. But what comes extra exposure to the sun’s rays is the threat of premature aging and skin cancer. I know to sounds harsh but thousands of people are diagnosed in the US with skin cancer every day. And most people receive the most sun damage in their first 18 years of life. We want you to enjoy the sun safely. In fact, the sun is your most valuable resource for Vitamin D. If you sit in the sun without sunscreen for 10 minutes you receive all the Vitamin D you need for the day and then some.

After those SPF-free ten minutes, being out in the sun isn’t an issue if you use SPF 15-30. Make sure the bottle is labeled ‘broad spectrum’ to protect you from both UVB and UVA rays. Each year buy new sun screen. Despite the printed expiration date, the ingredients that protect you from harmful rays lose their effectiveness over a year. Always spring for a new bottle.

At the Green Spa we run a one-on-one Summer Lovin’ SPF Clinic where an expert gives you advice on what sunscreens to use and how you can maintain great skin at any age. We also carry our favorite and most effective SPF’s from Eminence, La Bella Donna, and Jane Iredale. Here why we think you’ll love them:

This 2-in-1 powder and sun screen from Eminence should be your summer jam! We sell a variety of colors at the spa and can match your skin tone. It’s one of our faves because it’s non-greasy like lotion and gives your skin a matte finish.

 

 

Another SPF/ powder combo  we carry at the spa is La Bella Donna, mineral make-up. Also SPF 30, it comes in a variety of colors and a great easy-to-apply tube. Stop by and try the two out. We’d love to hear which one you prefer and why.

 

 

Jane Iredale’s  Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream covers, conceals and illuminates the skin for a flawless glow. Aloe leaf calms irritation while sunflower seed oil moisturizes to keep the skin soft.

 

This all-organic sunblock from Eminence not only protects but has an ample amount of shea butter that soothes the skin. Its sweet smell will sure have you reapplying!

 

Which sunscreens work for you?

 

Green Spa is proud to announce that our sales in partnership with Eminence Organic Skincare are responsible for planting 2041 trees so far this year!!!  Thank you to all of you who have purchased Eminence Organic Skincare at the Green Spa!  You can feel good knowing that your skincare is making a difference in the world today!

Since the launch of Forests for the Future initiative – a program in which Eminence plants a tree for every product we sell, with help from partner organization Trees for the Future.

Deforestation is the leading cause of climate change as millions of acres of trees are lost every year. We are determined to make a difference and we are proud to announce we’ve planted 2041 of the 1.5 million trees Eminence has planted to date – generating enough oxygen for over 6 million people.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Éminence Organic Skin Care for their Forests for the Future initiative, where they plant a tree for every product that they sell. We are dedicated to planting trees around the world to not only support the environment, but to affect change in developing countries by providing guidance for agroforestry with members of each community,” says John Leary, Executive Director of Trees for the Future. “Since partnering together in 2012, the donations from Éminence have helped us plant over 1 million trees with communities in such areas as Burundi, Uganda and Ghana. It’s an incredible achievement that is changing thousands of lives in developing countries.”

Thinking green is an inherent part of our philosophy and culture, and by purchasing our products, you are actively contributing to the fight against global climate change.

“Our future is dependent on our actions today. We provide natural and organic products that come from the earth. Without these gifts from Mother Nature, we would be unable to produce our quality products,” says Boldijarre Koronczay, President of Éminence. “We are committed to protecting our environment and implementing green initiatives and practices to inspire our partners and customers to think about tomorrow.”

Cruelty-Free Beauty

A lot of products claim to be vegan and cruelty-free, but they’re not. This blog from a makeup artist outlines exactly what defines vegan: no testing on animals, no animal ingredients in the cosmetics, and more. It’s a great and quick read if you are interested in transitioning from beauty products that test on animals, and have chemicals (including lead) in them.

Here are our staff picks of Vegan beauty products we sell at The Green Spa. No cruelty. No nasty chemicals. All the beauty!

We having been carrying Eminense Cosmetics for years. They can back up their cruelty-free claims and deliver on each product. Here’s are list of Summer shades to bring out the beach babe in you:

Strawberry Kiss Lip gloss! Made with real strawberries and smells like it!

 

Lavender  Shimmer Body Lotion. All natural, smells like summer, AND… you get a shimmery glow. The moisture is amazing without that sticky, oily feel.

This SPF powder is a pool, beach, and walking around the city must-have. To prevent the signs of aging, you have to wear broad spectrum SPF. This all-in-one loose powder and SPF 30 is amazing. We love it because it gives off a matte finish as opposed to regular suntan lotions.

Jane Iredale eyeshadows are natural and their staying power is the best we’ve seen in vegan lines. The color palettes are natural and accent various skin tones perfectly.

 

This Jane Iredale Hydration Spray is the tops. In the warm weather it’s important you drink more water and keep your skin dewy fresh!
