City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

As those of you with sensitive skin, allergies and frequent breakouts know, finding products that don’t irritate your face and body can be a challenge. I have more than a few friends whose lovely faces break out in red splotches at the mere sight of blusher. VMV Hypoallergenics, labeled as “The Gold Standard of Hypoallergenicity”, has been in the business of producing cosmetics and skin care products for those with finicky skin for over 30 years. All VMV products are validated hypoallergenic, fragrance free, paraben free, preservative free, non-comedogenic, non-drying, patch tested and not tested on animals. Pretty impressive, even to those of you with normal skin, huh?

Now, with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a cause very important to us here at Beauty News, VMV has created a special edition pink Meringue Makeup set to highlight the cause. AND, in the spirit of giving, one lucky BN reader will be given a Meringue Makeup set of his or her own. Each set contains five gorgeous colors for use on the eyes, cheeks and even the lips. The texture of the cosmetic is light, whipped and airy, almost like….well, meringue! The color spreads on easily with your fingertips, blends effortlessly and has a bit of a shimmery effect to it. And the color trays come packaged in an adorable (and reusable) hot pink box, the official color for breast cancer awareness.

Additionally, for the entire month of October, VMV will be making a $1 donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every purchase made of either this special edition pink Meringue Makeup set, select pink makeup shades or products that they have found to be helpful to cancer patients (including their new Know-It-Oil, a 100% pure certified organic virgin coconut oil, their Grandma Minnie’s Big Brave Boo Boo Balm and their Armanda Post-Procedure Barrier Cream with SPF 50+.) And anyone who buys two or more of these products will receive a cute pink makeup pouch in celebration of their contribution. Generous indeed.

So check out the VMV Hypoallergenics site at http://www.vmvhypoallergenics.com to shop. And send your name, address and phone number to contact@beautynewsnyc.com in order to enter to win the special edition pink Meringue Makeup set. The winner will be drawn at random from all entries received by Thursday, October 14th. Good luck!
