There is nothing like being welcomed with a paper cup of something warming on a nippy winter day and that is exactly how my afternoon at Clean Cult Christmas kicked off on Sunday. Held at Breather in London’s Clerkenwell, the split level airy space was the second green beauty event hosted by Clean Cult (the first was held back in July) and the perfect opportunity to pick up some clean beauty christmas gifts.
If you haven’t as yet come across the gang behind Clean Cult then you may be more familiar with them in their other guises; Elsie and Dominika from Clean Beauty Co and Mayah and Sabrina from Call It Vanity.
Clean Cult Christmas was an afternoon split into two halves. Both allowed for plenty of opportunity to shopping as well as being interspersed with clean beauty talks. The first was a discussion on How to have a Conscious Christmas with Tanya Hawkes (Therapi), Imelda Burke (Content) and Dana Elemara (Arganic). The second discussed what 2017 has in store for us in terms of clean beauty trends and the panel consisted of Pedro Catala (Twelve Beauty), Khandiz Joni (Make-up Artist) and Rebecca Goodyear (PR).
There were also a number of exhibitors at the event including: Therapi, Mallow + White, Green People and Isla Apothecary. Alongside them was a selection of treatments; Little Ondine offered water-based manicures at their mini nail bar and hairdresser Joel Benjamin was braiding hair. The mecca of green beauty that is Content was also there with a selection of make-up – which is another reason why I was there.
Working alongside friend and fellow green Make-up Artist Lou Dartford, we were on hand offering makeovers and make-up advice to a steady stream of people. It was a great opportunity for us to play with the whole RMS Beauty and Vapour Beauty ranges as well as getting to grips with the latest addition to the stable; Juice Beauty.
