International Women's Day
Lily-of-the-Valley has enchanted me since I was a little girl. A tiny, delicate, bell-shaped flower sprouting from the depths of Eastern European winters. The unforgettable fragrance that science can only attempt to replicate. Lily of the Valley is like a woman, appears to be dainty, delicate, yet, if left unattended it can become an invasive plant to other plants around it. It is strong enough to be able to survive most winter temperatures and bloom in the spring and summer seasons.
Regardless of age, women follow a similar rhythm of nature: the moon cycles, the seasons. In Winter we go inward, nurturing our buds. This is where self-care, warmth of tea, broths, baths cradle us and prepare for the bloom through darkness of the Winter season. If left unattended, we also become invasive, moody, unfulfilled. As March comes, we slowly (very slowly) start to awaken. If we’ve had proper care through the Winter, we feel the energy building up so that we can sprout, just like the fragrant, irresistible Lily of the Valley.
On this March 8th, International Women’s Day, I am overjoyed with the possibilities of being a woman during this time in history. A woman is all the things the Lily of the Valley is (and more): dainty, fragrant, unstoppable, resilient, beaming with a life-force that is admirable and exhilarating. Today, I am pouring myself a special beauty tea (you’ll all have it soon, too), I am present, I am simply being. A woman. What a wonder we are.

THE REDS. These are a lip hybrid perfection. Opaque and buildable enough to be a lipstick, glossy enough to be a stain. A light glossy coat or a full color [without running] if you scoop some up with your finger or a spatula. Either way, they are soft, non-sticky and perform all day long.
Treat lips with the moisture of a balm, the coverage of a lipstick, and the glow of a gloss. With shades ranging from subtle to statement, there’s a Lip Boost for every mood. Glam your pout with Gressa Lip Boost. Light, non-sticky and moisturizing, it feels like a balm yet looks like a gloss.
Presented in a black box, this makes a perfect gift for yourself or someone else.
Wear alone or over any lip color of your preference. Double as a blush.
