Hugh & Grace is the fantastic new vegan beauty brand that will have your self-care skincare routine on lock with their nourishing 4-product system. This system is all you need to clean, renew, nourish and protect your skin with meticulously sourced ingredients and formulated products. Comprised of a Cleansing Bar, Face Serum, Night Serum, and Body Oil, Hugh & Grace will hydrate and replenish your skin and put your mind at ease that you aren’t exposing yourself to harmful toxins and ingredients via your most delicate feature, your skin.
Founders Sara and Ben Jensen stated that they “are on a mission to help people live healthier, cleaner lives with high-performing, simple solutions that help reduce chemical exposure.” During their 14 year struggle with infertility, they realized that the products they were using each day on their bodies and in their homes contained toxic chemicals that can throw off hormones, impacting their lives in so many ways. Two bundles of joy later, and the founders were partnering with experts and creating products that could nourish, repair, and detox the body in a complete four-product system.
When Glitter asked about the idea behind Hugh & Grace, they replied, “We felt we could make a difference in the [beauty] space. We do not come from the beauty industry; we only knew self-care. The fastest way to impact chemical exposure is through skincare because what you put on your body gets in your body. Look at nicotine patches. Look at hormone creams; it goes right to your bloodstream.”
When Sara and Ben used their connections to grow the brand amongst friends and colleagues who truly loved the clean beauty message, the brand took off. It wasn’t just the products they loved but the promotion of an overall healthy and sustainable lifestyle which is evident in Hugh & Grace’s core message on their website. Hugh & Grace has also caught the eye of prominent celebrities such as Rachel Zoe, who loved the brand so much she became an investor. She stated, “I immediately fell in love with Hugh & Grace products – they make you feel like you’re indulging while you’re actually taking care of your skin.”
The Cleansing Bar ($15) includes good things like shea butter, cocoa butter, macadamia nut oil, and a custom essential oil blend to protect your skin. You can literally replace all of your cleansers with this one bar, leaving your skin hydrated and never stripped. As if the fresh scent wasn’t enough, the Cleansing Bar will protect your skin’s immunity each day and is scientifically formulated with an adaptogen complex and vitamin-rich ingredients to cleanse, help detox, combat bacteria, and help reduce inflammation. The Adaptogen Complex is “derived from nutrient-dense mushrooms and helps rebalance the skin’s microbiome, your skin’s ecosystem that helps maintain the good bacteria while helping to fight the bad bacteria.”
For daytime protection, Hugh & Grace developed the Face Serum ($95). It has a wonderful lightweight feel to it as it helps to restore, brighten and nourish the skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Powerful Vitamin C-rich oils will have your skin feeling hydrated and glowing. The Face Serum also smells invigorating to wake up tired skin with its custom-blended essential oils.
The Night Serum ($90) has a slightly heavier weight than the Face Serum but isn’t overwhelming. It includes their signature custom blend of essential oils, which are calming and perfect for the end of the day’s beauty ritual. The formulation consists of rosehip, cherry kernel, grapeseed, raspberry seed, meadowfoam seed, passionfruit, pumpkin seed, vitamin E, and blue tansy oils.
The Body Oil ($60) is super luxurious and goes on super smooth with a wonderful absorption. Can we say glowing skin? Yes, we can. The formula includes grapeseed, meadowfoam seed, sea buckthorn, rosehip, ylang-ylang oils, along with their custom essential oil blend. It hydrates your skin and makes you feel like you just stepped out of the spa.
