26 Mar An Aveda Earth Month History Lesson

Did you know…

-Since 1999, Aveda has raised $32 million dollars for clean water and water conservation causes across the globe?

-Last year, the Aveda network came together to raise $5.5 million dollars for Aveda Earth Month?

-Last year, the Inspire Greatness Institutes, contributed over $100k to Aveda Earth Month?

-This year, Aveda’s goal is $6 million dollars?

Why is this so important?  Lack of access to water and the lack of conservation are global issues.  Around the world, 780 million people lack access to clean water and it is one of the leading causes of infant deaths. (Source water.org) At the IG Institutes, we get to not only take care of our local communities through our Earth Month partner, Western Resource Advocates, but we also support the global cause through the sales of the limited edition Light the Way Candles.  Check out the video below, inspired by the artwork of children in India, for more info!  And stay tuned for more info about our Earth Month campaign and progress!

06 Jan Green Science™ Firming Eye Creme

green eye

There is a reason this little jar has 5 stars from over 300 people on the Aveda Website. The Aveda Green Science Firming Eye Creme is what I would call magic in a bottle. I have personally started using it and have fallen in love! But don’t take my word for it, check out some reviews left on the site.

Did someone see my bags?

I lost them. 2 weeks ago my bags were right here under my eyes. Now they’re gone. The only thing I did was start using this cream at night. I can’t find my fine lines either.

No need for Masking Tape anymore

You will have no use for your tape to stretch those eyes to help them look younger. Green Science Firming Eye Creme has been a life saver. I went from looking like Geroge Burns to Justin Bieber. Well not that drastic but still, It really is a wonderful product. Initially you will feel a little warm feeling around your eye but its nothing to be alarmed about. It will soon disappear after using the product for a few times. I never leave the house without applying the eye creme. I’ve been using it since it came out and I have recently been getting a tremendous amount of compliments on area around my eyes. Too bad I had to throw away my tape, I had every color and design. But with Green Science Firming Eye Creme, a guy can thank his lucky stars for younger looking eyes.

I’ve been using this cream for a few years now. When I stopped using it for a while to try something else, I really noticed what a difference this cream makes! My mother tried some of mine, and she noticed a difference in just one day. She immediately went out and bought her own!

02 Jan Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil Testimonial and Sourcing Story

If you haven’t experienced our new Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil (featured on our NYE Pictorial), you are for sure missing out.  I have been using the oil for about a month and when I don’t have it (like when I forgot to throw it in my suitcase on my last trip to Salt Lake City), I feel robbed!  My hair is thin and fine, yet the oil does not feel too heavy when I use the right amount.  (Yes, I have OVERDONE it, but when you experience the aroma of ginger lily, lavender, and bergamot, you will understand how this is possible!)  On my length of hair (very short), I really only need 1 drop.  I prefer to put it on my hair when it is dry, but you can also apply when wet.  Overall, it just gives me a soft, finished, nourished feeling to my hair, and I love it!
