Nature 21 Blvd is a brand new beauty site curating natural skincare and makeup, with an emphasis on Korean beauty, all with a sense of fun – the 21 in the name references the freedom and carefree spirit of that age. All the cool kids are there – brands like Youth to the People, Ah, Vapour, Supergoop and my current obsession Hannes Dottir!
Founders Lynda Lee and Soledad Cordova, friends since college left behind corporate roles to start this new venture and the site is gorgeous – simple and easy to navigate. Maybe my favorite thing about the experience of shopping on their site is how the box of natural beauty arrived.
I tried a few of their star products, first up Ah’s Eye Contour Cream from the English brand created by Andrea Hutchin a Ph balanced, lightweight and reasonably priced anti-aging eye cream. Secondly, if you follow my blog you know I’m a bit obsessed with Vapour Organic Beauty, not only do these products perform well I love the elegant sleek look of the brand. Their Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is the first foundation in stick form I’ve ever used and the coverage is amazing and thanks to their Herbal Enlightenment Complex, an infusion of Frankincense, Tulsi and Lotus it also calmed my sensitive skin. Lastly I have been dying to try the Icelandic brand Hannes Dóttir since seeing a gorgeous spread in an Anthropolige catalog! The Marine College Lift is a dry mask, that turns green and gooey when you add water but leaves skin feeling tight and incredibly clean thanks to a mix wild organic Icelandic Sea Kelp, Arctic Marine Collagen Peptides, Powdered Honey, Albumen Protein, and organic Vanilla Bean!
