Just a few weeks ago, Nancy and I made a trip to LA solely for the Lauren Conrad book signing for her new book Celebrate. And in the midst of that adventure, we got to pop into the Honest Beauty Store located in The Grove.
I’ve only heard of Honest Beauty through the internet grape vine and there were rave reviews over her skin care. I loved how intriguing the storefront was, so it immediately lured me in!
We were greeted by such friendly staff who shared that their store was fully interactive. There were iPads stationed around the different beauty products, and when you would stand in front of it, would add a different beauty look onto your face! If only it were that easy to apply makeup!
After taking a look around the store, I knew I didn’t need anymore beauty products, but at the same time knew I would be upset if I didn’t take the opportunity to pick something up while at the store (anyone else have that feeling?). They had everything from face, eyes, and lips, to awesome looking skincare in beautiful packaging. After perusing the store, I decided to go with a few products… The Hydrating Face Mist and the Konjac Sponge.
I just ran out of my toner mist I usually opt for from LUSH and this one just smelled awesome and misted so nicely! I couldn’t say no. And I picked up the Konjac Sponge because I’ve always wanted to try one to up my skincare game but never had the chance to pick up. The associate who helped us said the sponge works really well when using a cleanser as it helps exfoliate and get a deeper clean than when using your hands and shared that it’s helped up her skincare game. So needless to say, I was sold!
So you can only imagine how excited I was to pick up these two products and use at home! The overall experience visiting their store was also so much fun, because aside from the cool iPads, they had a photo booth just behind the big mirror they have in store. It was SO cool – basically a hidden room full of photo booth magic (pretty much wizardry approved by Harry Potter).
I would definitely visit again, just for the sheer fact that I can hog the photo booth and make silly faces in the privacy of a cute room and also to get my Honest Beauty fix! After using the products for the last few weeks, here are some of my thoughts!
Elevated Hydration Mist – I love how clean and refreshing this mist is, it definitely helps my face stay hydrated and I only use it after my skin care regime in the morning as well as after I apply my makeup, kind of in replacement of a setting spray. After using it every day after I got it, I definitely can feel a difference as far as my skin goes – it seems a lot more calm and stays moisturized throughout the day – which I love! And not to mention, it’s pretty affordable in comparison to other mists! So yay!
Refreshingly Clean Gentle Konjac Sponge – I haven’t used a sponge to clean off my makeup before and I’ve only really used this a hand full of times, but I can easily say it’s a nice addition to my skincare regime! I’ve used it alone and also with a cleanser, and it’s a great alternative to using my hands when wanting to deep clean and exfoliate. Once wet, it gets soft but is still able to give you a deep clean on days when you need it! I recommend giving this a try if you haven’t explored the world of the sponge.
