    Davines’ New MINU Line, Collaboration with Presidia Project

    Slow & Steady
    Davines is making major changes this year. It has updated all nine of its Essential Haircare families—they’re produced using energy from renewable sources with Zero Impact packaging and a reduced use of plastic. MINU is a new addition to those families, and it preserves color with its shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and hair serum.

    Additionally, Davines is collaborating with the non-profit Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity by joining the Presidia Project; the non-profit builds bridges between ecology, gastronomy, ethics and good food and supports 10,000 small producers that grow plants typical of specific places.

    Each family of the Essential Haircare line contains a single active ingredient from a Slow Food Presidium and features the story, face and name of the farmer who grew it. The goal is to kick-start smaller economies and prevent extinction of local artisan traditions.

      HOW TO CLEAN YOUR MAKE-UP BRUSHES

      Here is a simple way to clean your make-up brushes with only one ingredient!

      My friend recently shared with me a very simple and cost effective way to clean make-up brushes and I just couldn’t wait to share about it! I’m not sure about you, but cleaning my make-up brushes didn’t sit very high on the list of important things to clean. I guess I never really had thought about it before!

      Truth is though, after using your makeup brushes even just a few times, your face’s natural oils, the makeup, and any other dust or dirt can begin to build up on to the bristles. Pretty gross to think about right? Spending a few moments cleaning your brushes every once in a while can help keep those germs from getting transferred to your face. Not to mention it can help keep your brush’s bristles soft and most effective!

      SO… now that I’ve got you thoroughly worried about the condition of your brushes, want to know my little secret for keeping them clean?

      Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap.. That’s it! This soap smells delicious, cleans great and is all natural and organic. I mean, can we get any better?

      What you’ll need:

      Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap – Peppermint (I picked mine up at Target for less than $10)
      Small bowl
      Water to rinse
      Towel to dry

      What you’ll do:

      Pour a small amount of the Castile Soap into a bowl (A little goes a long way here!)
      Rub your brush into the soap and create a lather in the bowl
      Gently massage the bristles of your brush to loosen the make-up and the dirt
      Rinse your brush under water until all the soap is completely out and the water runs clear
      Use a clean towel and pat the bristles to remove excess water
      Fluff the bristles to help them regain their original shape
      That’s it!
