- A holistic tea inspired beauty line.
If you live in LA you probably have heard about the h.wood tea room and their innovative tea based cocktails. This cool and mysterious place that supposedly is all the rage in LA has inspired some of the city's most respected makeup artists to come together and create a beauty line called - H.wood beauty. How cool is a beauty line inspired by tea based cocktails ! I think its a great story ! But what's even more amazing is that their products are big on natural / organic goodness.
The folks at h.wood beauty sent me a couple of products to try and the organic / natural geek in me loved seeing the "ORGANIC" label on their lip balm ! Their lip balms AKA lip teas ($10) come in six flavors and have the shortest ingredient list ever. Its just a bunch of clean products like coconut oil, olive oil, Shea butter, green tea coming together to keep your lips soft and hydrated. I tried the vanilla caramel flavor - and have contemplated chewing it many a times - smells so good ! Once you try products like this , it almost makes you feel guilty about using petroleum byproducts on yourself.
Another new product from the line , is their lip shine ($16). Housed in an alluring golden tube, these lip shines are sheer lip colors made with all the goodness of their lip balms. These are available in five shades - sheer, poppy, ruby, rose, plum. I tried ruby and adored the look of translucent red on my lips. Its great for a no makeup look. But its also so so so very easy to use them up in a minute. Not a minute really but you know what I mean. And for this reason alone I wish it were cheaper.
Overall très impressed with the line. Its hard for me to not like a line made locally with lots of good-for-you ingredients and h.wood beauty plays to this weakness in me.
PS : For those of you asking, I received confirmation from JHLA that they are not affiliated with h.wood beauty.
