MASAMI is proud to be the founding brand of the Conscious Beauty Collective, a group of 40+ indie beauty & wellness brands creating retail experiences. Their latest stop is at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and they’ll be there until June 30th.

They offer weekly events with founder meetups, sampling, demos, and live-streaming.
Clean beauty is the future, and ideally it’s part of your present. Your skin soaks up everything you put on it, so make sure you’re treating yourself to the very best (i.e. the cleanest) in skincare and makeup products. Here are some suggestions for Mother’s Day and beyond from the the Conscious Beauty Collective:

Natural Radiant Life‘s Lavender Body Serum is a heavenly meld of grapeseed oil (antioxidant-rich to penetrate the skin quickly, leaving the skin soft, supple and moisturized) as well as vitamin E to nourish and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals and reduce UV damage to the skin. It also contains squalane derived from olives to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, soothe, prevent irritation, soften, and fade dark spots. Finally, its organic lavender essential oil calms as an anti-inflammatory that protects against free radicals. So this is a veritable powerhouse in a bottle. It smells absolutely divine, too. ($45)
