My first official introduction to Sunday Riley was backstage at The Row, during their elegant Fall 2013 presentation. While many designers tend to showcase big-name brands like Lancôme and Estée Lauder, the Olsen girls stay true-blue to the relatively new line that they have been using the past few seasons.
If the Olsen’s got her back, of course I am curious.
Sunday Riley has been making and testing skincare products since she was a 12-year-old girl in Texas (southwest, woop woop), when her grandmother first introduced her to Native American botanicals. Her philosophy is simple: modern skincare demands a marriage between botanicals and biotechnology, otherwise known as, “green technology.”
Back at The Row, Tom Pecheux used Juno Transformative Lipid Serum to prep the model’s bare skin. This dry oil is a blend of 13 different nourishing oils – including argan, acai, carrot seed and pomegranate oil – and quickly absorbs the skin, leaving a luminous, glowy (not sticky) finish. This killer little product also improves elasticity (we all need this) and reduces redness. I like to layer it under my current lotion and cream both day and night but that extra jolt.
I trust any girl who can sell a $39,000 alligator backpack.
