A gorgeous night at Well+Good’s Better Beauty Salon

Last night at the Well+Good Loft (aka our West Soho office), co-founder and natural beauty expert Melisse Gelula teamed up with organic-beauty founder Hope Gillerman to lead our first Better Beauty Salon.

More than 30 readers gathered on what was a super freezing cold night to meet, mingle, and discuss one of the best subjects ever—natural beauty. We may have also enjoyed some warming antioxidant-rich elixirs (aka Montepulciano) and some super-refreshing raw coconut water.

The beauty crowd included women with pesky personal beauty concerns to the spa director at the Mandarin Oriental and beauty bloggers.

While Melisse and Hope dished on ingredients, readers asked great questions, sampled the organic HGO Lab products, and learned how to use facial oils and balms and exfoliating cleansing cloths. And many readers purchased the cult-favorite products on their way out.

Everyone left with gift bags filled with H. Gillerman Organics essential oil blends like Sinus Remedy and Jaw Tension Relief, plus flower-extract-infused Wei of Chocolate and a 3-day pass to Pure Yoga.

One lucky reader (congrats, Melissa!) won a mini-retreat day at the Spa at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz.

Stay tuned for future fabulous events at the Well+Good Loft!
