Nonie of Beverly Hills Skin Care Review

Nonie of Beverly Hills Skin Care Review

While trying new skin care is nothing new to me, trying a skin care line with alpha hydroxy acids is. Recently Nonie of Beverly Hills sent me several products from their AHA! line to try out – a cleanser, a skin tonic, and a moisturizer. All of their products are cruelty free,vegan, preservative-free,  and made from natural ingredients. Their line also extends into body lotions, shaving creams, and even sunscreen. Nonie of Beverly Hills was founded by Nonie when she was 66. Her skin looked fresh and youthful thanks to her own skin care products that she had been making, and she realized that there were few products on the market that offered the benefits of alpha hydroxy acids in a natural formula. Now owned by Mendel Duchman, this skin care line holds true to the original values and beliefs in effective and natural skin care.

Part of what makes None of Beverly Hills a unique brand is the use of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) in their products. AHA’s have been suggested for years to help speed up the renewal of your skin cells. This leaves your skin looking fresh, youthful, and can help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately most AHA’s come from chemicals or animal sources. None of Beverly Hills found a way to capture the power of AHA’s in a completely natural and vegan formula. To learn more about the benefits of using skin care with AHA’s, None of Beverly Hills has a full page on their site that details the benefits.

NCLA for Beyoncé Nail Wraps

NCLA for Beyoncé Nail Wraps

A few months ago, one of my favorite cruelty free and vegan nail polish brands, NCLA, launched their first collaboration with Beyoncé herself. I was SO excited for them! I have been using NCLA products for years and thought it was amazing that Queen Bey herself had sought out this amazing brand.

Recently, another line of NCLA for Beyoncé Nail Wraps were launched. NCLA sent me these wraps to try out, but I had to share them with you before I wear them. They are the same high-quality NCLA nail wraps that I love, but in super of-the-moment and chic prints.

Too Faced May Be Bought by Estee Lauder

Too Faced May Be Bought by Estee Lauder

I woke up today to a terrible rumor – Too Faced may be bought by Estee Lauder. Too Faced has long been known as a high-endcruelty free brand that goes out of their way to provide amazing vegan options to their customers. The ladies over in the Bunny Lifestyle group found out about the news first, and I had to immediately share with the readers of Logical Harmony.

Update on June 8, 2015: Too Faced Gains a New Investor, and It’s Not Estee Lauder

According to the WWD article Too Faced Cosmetics on Block, Sources Say the brand is looking to sell and one of the prospective buyers is cosmetics giant, and animal tester, Estee Lauder.

“One of the bidders is Estée Lauder, along with a number of private-equity players. Too Faced was  founded in  1998 by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, and in 2012, Western Presidio bought a majority stake. Sales of the Irvine, Calif.-based cosmetics brand, whose price points range from $17 to $49, has been estimated at $150 million at retail annually.”

Personally, I really hope that Too Faced can either remain independently owned or be purchased by a private-equity player. If they are purchased by Estee Lauder, even if Too Faced is able to remain cruelty free, they will be owned by a parent company who tests on animals. This could be a huge hit to current customers of Too Faced, and to the brand who would lose many customers if this deal happens.

I have reached out to Too Faced directly and am hoping to receive a statement from the brand on this matter. When and if I do, an update will be posted here on Logical Harmony. Too Faced is one of my favorite brands and I would be devastated if I have to stop supporting them.

I encourage you to reach out to Too Faced and let them know that you will not support their brand if they are purchased by a company who tests on animals. Email them, tweet at them, post on their Facebook wall, or post on their Instagram page.
