Aveda has just released their limited-edition, spring/summer makeup collection: Art of Nature.
It’s a wonderful array of pure pastels and lush, summer colors. Come visit milk + honey to try these wonderful seasonal shades.
“The make-up palette and applications are nature-inspired, seeing a return to color in make-up with techniques that create a more lived-in, less ‘done’ look,” says Janell Geason, Artistic Director for Aveda make-up in modersalon.com. “The new collection of colors starts with pure pastels like the first buds of spring, and builds into lush, highsummer color.”

Following your sugar scrub, you’ll be treated to a steam and 45-minute Lux Massage with our hydrating pomegranate body butter.

The fine folks at Keep Austin Stylish stopped by our new digs at the corner of Guadalupe and Cesar Chavez to check us out. Here’s just a little of what they had to say:
The new space is bigger and more open with floor to ceiling windows looking out towards the trails and the lake. It’s a beautiful space and I had the pleasure of gettin my hair did at the new Austin salon. I came in expecting to get just a cut, but after I told her that my hair had gotten super dry lately, my gal Amber hooked me up with a gloss treatment as well!

‘Bee Amour’ Jewelry Event, December 23
2nd Street District from 1pm to 4pm
milk + honey spa has featured the work of Austin-based jewelry designer and original milk + honey employee, Anna Gieselman, since we opened in 2006. It is with great excitement that we introduce her new jewelry line: Bee Amour. The latest work is a fusion of two of Anna’s passions, jewelry designing and back yard bee keeping.
Some of the first pieces of the Bee Amour line were original castings straight out of her hive and the line has since expanded to include rings, bracelets and even tie clips. Since the bees provide her with the inspiration for Bee Amour, Anna donates 5% of every purchase to bee-loving organizations and non-profits that research apiary issues, and provide education to new beekeepers.
Katina is one of our fantastic Estheticians at milk + honey spa 2nd Street District. She has been working as an Esthetician and natural Nail Therapist for more than 15 years. She explains how to eliminate those dark circles from under your eyes.
Skincare for Changing Weather Patters
When the weather changes, the skin seems to follow. Many people who are used to their oily skin will now see normal or combination skin, and people who have normal skin will start to see a few dry patches emerge. Remember, you should not use the same skincare products year round. Just as you change clothes to protect yourself from the changing weather, you must change your products to protect your skin. Move towards products containing creamier, richer ingredients to help hydrate and nourish the skin.
To keep rough skin at bay, moisturize everyday! My personal favorite product to use in the winter and one of milk + honey’s top sellers, Emulsion by Cosmedix.
Emulsion by Cosmedix hydrates, soothes and contains antioxidants while stimulating collagen and providing a blend of nature’s perfect moisturizers such as jojoba and shea butter. Its unique, liquid crystal formulation is used to infuse your skin with intense moisture and is also a great product to use after a resurfacing treatment.
During the hot summer months we spend a great part of our time outdoors — in the pool, on the boat, or at the beach without the proper protection from the sun. Now is the time to take control by stopping in to SALON by milk + honey for a rejuvenating Kevin.Murphy Born.Again.Treatment. Suitable for all hair types, this Kevin.Murphy treatment will boost your stressed out tresses.
The Kevin.Murphy Born.Again.Treatment. includes four steps:
Born.Again.Wash. — Full of anti-oxidants, amino acids and proteins that will strengthen the hair and deliver tremendous moisture deep inside the hair shaft.
Born.Again.Mask. — A great weekly home treatment, this mask will instantly heal hair from the drying elements and protect it from further summer torture.
Born.Again.Treatment. — Full of anti-oxidant, this is medicine for the hair and scalp.

Are you ready to boost your Signature Facial at milk + honey?
To top off the rejuvenating and deep cleansing benefits of the Signature Facial, take your skin care to the next level with the Pomegranate Brightening Treatment.
We upgrade the Signature Facial with 2 different antioxidant peel treatments, the first being the Blueberry Smoothie that gently refreshes and exfoliates without irritation. This antioxidant peel combines a gentle acid with blueberry extracts that smooths away surface impurities and invigorates for a clear youthful glow. It’s also an exceptional blemish treatment.
The second treatment, the Pomegranate Peel, works to even out the top layer of skin, smoothing away superficial sun damage and brightening the skin. Powerful antioxidant ingredients provide a therapeutic leveling treatment that targets free radicals while gently stimulating collagen for a youthful finish. If you receive facials routinely this is a great way to kick it up a notch and if you’re just beginning your skincare journey this is a great way to deep clean, renew and start with a clean, fresh slate.
The Pomegranate Brightening Treatment is an add-on for the Signature Facial only. Our peels are $95 as a stand alone, but the Pomegranate Brightening Treatment is $50 when added to our Signature Facial.
