    #RealBeauty: Dana Hutchings

    Our #RealBeauty series continues to shine a spotlight on the incredible women we get to work and play with everyday here in our beautiful home of Victoria. You know those women who seem to look incredibly put together and glamorous everyday? Well, those two things describe our next feature who is the beautiful Dana Hutchings! Dana came to us after a serious health scare put her in the hospital due to none other than the makeup she was using everyday. This led her not only #maketheswitch but also become a green beauty advocate along with being a force to be reckoned with and a badass mama. Your name and a little bit about yourselfMy name is Dana. I'm a west coast girl who is incredibly fortunate to work every day for a non-profit organization called Power To Be.  I am also a Mom to an amazing boy. How would you describe your lifestyle? Active, outdoor, fast-paced, glamorous, laughter-filled and fun!  How does the beauty industry play a role in your daily life?  It's always played a role in my adult life. When I was...

    A Wyld Welcome

    A Wyld Welcome

    We are so pleased to introduce Wyld Skincare to our curated family! Have you heard about konjac sponges? These little beauty miracles work to add a gentle exfoliation into your nightly cleansing routine by using the plant power of the Konjac plant. Konjac is a plant grown in the wild mountainous regions of China, Japan and Korea that has finally made it’s way into our own skincare rituals. These sponges have been a well-kept secret for years in Western society but have been used in Asia for centuries. The konjac sponge has a net-like texture that is naturally alkaline; it effectively balances pH levels on your skin, unlike a washcloth or a synthetic sponge. Many scrubs and electric brushes are too abrasive for our delicate facial skin and can cause irritation and breakouts. Using a konjac sponge helps lift off makeup, remove build-up, wash away a mask and can even be used on the body in problem areas. Wyld sponges are designed to be gentle and natural that even the littlest members of your family can use them too. It's...

    #RealBeauty: Ellie Shortt

     On International Women's Day 2017, we launched the teaser for our #RealBeauty Series. The series celebrates authentic beauty by using our very own customers as our Green Kiss models, coupling their physical beauty with what resonates with us all even more... their inner beauty. The series celebrates and showcases the strong wonderful women that make up our community here at The Green Kiss. The campaign was lead by our creative director and lead MUA, Carly Flint and features her work on all of the models (using what many of them use in their daily routines).     Small Biz Disclaimer: The launch of our real beauty series has been a long time coming (and much awaited by our team and community) but sometimes in life, it's important to make sure something is "just right." To be transparent, the reason for the delay was due to the fact that our blog wasn't looking quite as we envisioned it should. We therefore decided to take the proper time to ensure this platform was as beautiful as the women and future content we were gearing...

    Spotlight Series: 100 Percent Pure's Ultra Riche PM Treatment

    Spotlight Series: 100 Percent Pure's Ultra Riche PM Treatment

      Let's face it, even though I am so wonderfully proud of our website and the information it offers our community and customers, we all know dang well that shopping for green beauty products online can be difficult. As the owner of this business, I am constantly asking myself how we can improve our online customer's shopping experience. In a perfect world, you would be able to teleport yourselves to our beauty bar here in Victoria BC. We'd be able to meet you, connect with you, and laugh and be silly with you all while helping you test and try these gorgeous products before buying. One of the most common conversations that I have with our team is about just this. How do we take what we do in store and offer that experience to our customers across North America? Enter in our Spotlight Series. This is our first step in doing just that. While we take great care in writing each and EVERY product description on our website from the heart with authenticity, accuracy and clarity, there is only so...

    5 Years In The Making - Our First Post

    5 Years In The Making - Our First Post

    Welcome to our blog!  They say that good things take time. My belief is that in small business, this could not ring truer.  It’s been over 5 years now since I started The Green Kiss and about 4.5 since I launched our original website. If you too are an entrepreneur, then I know you can relate to what I am about to say. Anything to do with implementing technology, systems, or new platforms in your business will always take longer than you originally plan for. Can I get an amen? And luckily for me, as I have become more comfortable with the daily stresses of having a small business, the angst that comes with not having something done when you originally planned for has lessened. You learn to roll with things a heck of a lot more than you probably originally did. Since writing my original business plan, a blog component to our website has always been on the to-do list. In fact, it was written on that to-do list…..oh….6 years ago?! The thing is though, and the ‘hiccup’ around it, is that...
