Founder of the Love Beauty Wellness Festival
Name: June Farahan
What city do you call home: Wherever I am currently residing - and presently it is LA!
Occupation: Beauty and wellness advocate and entrepreneur
As the founder of the Love Beauty Wellness Festival, can you tell us what inspired you to create this event: The lack of human connection in our daily lives and the desire to bring together creators and leaders in the clean beauty and wellness realm.
What makes this festival unique and what can attendees expect to experience: The LBWF is unique in that we focus on creating connections and community between those in the clean beauty and wellness industry. It’s not a trade-show or a conference - it’s a movement and gathering.
You are launching a new face oil at this years Love Beauty Wellness Festival. Can you tell us more about its creation: I’ve been making beauty and wellness products for myself for some time and started working on a face oil two years ago. There are lots of amazing face oils available now but I wanted to create one that I felt addressed the needs of many common issues such as dull damaged skin. I wanted something rich in plant oils with the addition of actives that showed real performance. The Golden Elixir Phytoactive Face Oil has a very potent Vitamin C, CoQ10 and Collageneer which provide the antioxidants and fatty acids to restore radiance and protect the skin from free radical damage. Together with the elixir of plant extracts, the face oil aids in repairing, hydrating and regenerating skin.
Can we expect additional product launches in the future: Yes definitely!
What advice would you share with someone who is interested in transitioning their beauty regime to include more natural products: Introduce one new product at a time.
Tell us about your beauty staples. What beauty products are always in your makeup bags: A little eyebrow help from Ecobrow, RMS highlighter in Rose Gold and lip stain or lipstick from Kjaer Weis and Y Et Beaute are some of my current faves.
You have a gorgeous complexion. What are your skincare must haves: I am more into skincare than makeup and believe cleansing, toning and hydrating are absolute essentials. I use a cleansing oil and toning mist that we plan to launch soon followed by our Phytoactive Face Oil.
Favorite luxury item: I don’t consider any of the skincare or makeup I use as luxury items - they are all necessary! However I do love facials and light treatments which are really luxurious.
Favorite drugstore item: Thayers Witch Hazel
Hair-care must haves: A moisturizing hair oil.
Go-to shop for eco-friendly and ethical brands: Credo Beauty
It’s obvious that you have a love for beauty and wellness. Can you share with us one of your first beauty related memories: Watching my mom make home-made facials and hair treatments.
Favorite beauty tip: Mist after applying makeup to create a natural dewy look and not look so ‘done’.
Why is wellness important to you: Without wellness we have nothing. All the money in the world can’t make you feel good unless you prioritize the well-being of your mind, body and spirit.
Who inspires you: Authentic entrepreneurs.
