City Pulse

By Kelly Hushin

It isn’t everyday you get a healthy dose of Omega5 oils and pomegranates in your skincare. In fact, until Pomega5, you couldn’t.

Developed in the kitchen of founder Tzeira Sofer, nutritionist turned skincare innovator and enthusiast, the Pomega5 line merges modern science and ancient medicine with biodynamic farming. The result is an entirely natural line with high quality organic ingredients, including pomegranate oil from pomegranates grown in Mediterranean fields that have never been touched by pesticides. The line is carried at all NYC Bliss spas, but you still have a few days to preview it at Henri Bendel. All week Pomega5 is holding a trunk show at Bendel’s where you can indulge in a 15-minute mini-facial (no purchase necessary!) with the various products in the line.

Pomega5 is also serving up hydrating hand massages as well, for those who prefer some palm pampering. Trunk show shoppers will receive a special gift (valued at $50) with the purchase of $150 worth of Pomega5 products during the Bendel’s event.

Some favorites of the line are the Or de Nuit Illuminating Lifting Serum, made with nutrient-rich Aloe Vera, blue green algae to tone and firm, mineral gold to brighten, and orchid flower extract as a powerful antioxidant, and the Daily Revitalizing Concentrate Ampoules, made with more than 60 percent pure Omega5, as well as Jojoba, Calendula, Rosehip, and grapefruit oils. The single-use ampoules help promote cellular renewal and stimulate collagen production for healing and wrinkle, redness, scar and dark spot reduction.

A happy surprise: some of the products smell exactly like a red velvet cupcake. Not sure if Sofer meant to do this, but when she makes her very small product batches at very low-temperatures, something delicious must happen. Get to Bendel’s before March 6th to snag these perks. Here are the deets:
