Before we at Activist had even launched our first product, we were incredibly lucky to have been introduced to Mercedes, a longtime beauty blogger (a true OG in the beauty blogger world), deep house DJ, PhD social scientist, francophile, and most importantly, a lovely person with a beautiful heart. She's the sister of a close friend of Allison's and she blogs under the name L’amour et la Musique.
We sent her our prototype to try during our beta testing phase while we were still refining our custom serum concept. Mercedes was so generous with her time in providing extremely helpful feedback about our early product. Once we had officially launched, she did us the honor of continuing to use our serums (our Custom Hyaluronic Acid Serum is her favorite), as well as helping to spread the word about our tiny company to her community of adoring fans.
So it's with great pleasure that we share with you two of her YouTube videos where she mentions us! Mercedes chose our Custom Hyaluronic Acid Serum as one of the best eco-luxury beauty products of 2016, and mentioned us again as one of her favorite eco-beauty products this month (January 2017). As always, Mercedes’s reviews are thorough and authentic. As a trusted affiliate of Beauty Heroes, her praise of our serums means the world to us!
In her first review, she describes how a hyaluronic acid serum has become a beautiful step to her morning skincare routine. Check out her review here! She begins talking about Activist Skincare at 5:19, but the rest of the video is definitely worth watching too.
A few weeks later, she reviewed our Custom Hyaluronic Acid Serum again. She describes how she uses the serum, and says it is “next level” in treating problematic skin. Activist Skincare is mentioned starting at 3:10. Like her first one, this video review is also worth watching all the way through!
Beyond reviewing the latest and greatest in eco-beauty, Mercedes also provides a holistic perspective on creating a beautiful, conscious, and meaningful life. She covers issues including astrology, diet/nutrition, fashion, and crystals. Take some time to check out her blog and YouTube channel to discover this unique soul in the ecoluxe world!
