Yvonne’s Vegan Kitchen at The Honest Beauty Launch Party

When Jessica’s personal assistant and PR rep contacted me to let me know Jessica was a fan of my cheese and treats and asked me to prepare treats for her Honest Beauty launch party, I was so thrilled and, of course, could not pass on the opportunity.

Our companies are both transparent about what we put in our products and listing ingredients on our packaging, and are made with our customer’s health & wellness in mind, and we agreed it was a good fit.

Sweets, treats, and beauty care items are more affordable luxury items, and there are so many of them on the market to choose from. What I love about our companies is that we make them so you have freedom to indulge, whether it be in having fun with makeup or stuffing your face with cookies. Of course, natural beauty and beauty from within is the best kind of beauty, and drinking green smoothies and eating massaged kale salads will bring you optimal health, but enhancing your beauty with beneficial skincare and makeup, as well as eating healthier and delicious alternatives to donuts and cookies is just icing on the cake—it makes life a little better and more enjoyable.

For the Honest Beauty Party, I had free reign. I could make whatever I wanted, as long as the cheese was on the menu, and I had a whole counter to fill. This was for about 100 people. I decided on…

1) A 3-cheese platter (black truffle, roasted garlic, onion and chive, and cranberry dill vegan cashew cheese) with my superfood crackers, grapes, dried fruit, and toasted nuts.

2) Chocolate Pot de Creme

3) Chocolate Covered Donuts

4) Chocolate Chai Cookies

5) Vanilla lemon with raspberry

6) Fruit Tarts

I not only made a dessert table, I was also invited to stay to enjoy the party.  I loved that they served vegan savory items for me to enjoy. They also had beautiful (vegetarian) geode cookies by Good Vibes Cookie Co, had great music, delicious cocktails, a tarot card reader, the most gorgeous flower arrangements, and some amazing ladies—lots of moms, social media and lifestyle influencers, and entrepreneurs.

I had the pleasure of getting my make-up touched-up by a glam team and tried the new Honest Beauty color palette, and other newly-branded and packaged beauty products. It was a great night.

Before transitioning to the vegan lifestyle in 2013, I was very conscious about products I used on my body and, of course, those that I put into my body, like vitamins. I told my 5 sisters about Honest’s different product lines, and we all subscribed. They sell natural and eco-friendly biodegradable diapers, baby wipes, and other non-toxic wellness, personal hygiene, household cleaning products, and now, beauty products!

Honest Beauty does not test their products on animals. They rely on a combination of scientific literature, non-animal testing, raw material safety testing and/or human testing to ensure product safety as an alternative to animal testing. Since my audience is very diverse, I will tell you which products I’ve tried that are vegan, which are beegan (contain honey or wax), and vegetarian.

They are extremely transparent about their products and lists all of the ingredients on their packaging and website. Some of their products contain beeswax, lactoperoxidase (an enzyme derived from milk), and carmine (a pigment derived from insects) for coloring. You can find the complete list of products below… I find this information incredibly helpful and I hope this allows you  to use Honest Beauty products with complete confidence!

The Honest Beauty “Beegan” Products include:

Detox Mud Mask – Manuka Honey

Magic Balm – Beeswax

Y+C Nourishing Lotion – Beeswax

Creme Blush – Beeswax

Cream Foundation – Beeswax

Eyeshadow – Depending on the color, Carmine

LipCrayons – Beeswax +  depending on the color, carmine

Mascara – Beeswax

The Honest Beauty Vegetarian Products include:

Deep Hydration – Beeswax +  lactoperoxidase

The vegan products I have tried include:

1) Everything Primer Matte

2) Magic Balm

3) Makeup Remover Wipes

4) Gentle Gel Cleanser

5) Organic Beauty Facial Oil

The Everything Primer Matte, which I use under my concealer, is light, buildable, & breathable. It’s oil-free and matte, long-lasting and smooth for makeup coverage that is even!

I use the Magic Balm on my lips, and if I have any dry spots it’s perfect for those… even on my elbows. It soothes and softens.

The Makeup Remover Wipes are gentle on my skin and leave me feeling fresh.

The Gentle Gel Cleanser gently cleans and removes makeup and dirt without over-drying. The chamomile and calendula extracts leave my skin feeling calm and refreshed.

I use the Organic Beauty Facial Oil on my fine lines and as a moisturizer. My sensitive skin seems to enjoy it! I also use it on my neck. Remember to moisturize your neck, ladies and gents!

What I love about the new packaging is that it’s so lovely, simple, and clean that the products look great on the counter, left out, and not stored away… you want to showcase them!

Big thanks again to Jessica and her crew for welcoming me into their headquarters and for allowing me to feed your guests, a few who are now my good friends. It was such a pleasure!

More on the Honest Company…

They manufacture their own natural products and sell them on their site. Or, find them at Target or health-focused markets. The company offers subscription delivery services, wherein you pay a monthly fee to have an assortment of products delivered to your home on a monthly basis, like a “Family Essentials” bundle. You can also buy products at your own pace.

They do NOT test on animals, and they even use renewable or recycled materials in all of their packaging, shipping, and office products. They donate money to good causes, too! Read about their extensive sustainability efforts on their website! In addition to their 100% plant-based baby care, cleaning, and personal care products, their “Honestly Free Guarantee” promises that their products are free of:

phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, PVC, parabens, benzene, chlorine, synthetic fragrances, triclosan, formaldehyde-based preserving agents, nanoparticles, TEA, MEA, phosphates, polyethylene glycol (PEG), quaternium 15, DMDM hydantoin, 1-4 dioxane, bisphenol-A (BPA), alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs)/nonylphenol, BHA, benzalkonium chloride
