New In: CosMedix Shineless Moisturizer

April 21, 2017


For those with oily or acne prone skin, the new CosMedix Shineless Moisturizer ($48) is a beauty bag must-have. This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer is free of parabens, silicone, and animal products, utilizes nourishing ingredients to control the skin’s oil levels, delivers deep hydration, and provides a matte complexion.

Let’s break down the ingredients, shall we?

  • Lilac stem cells help control and balance oil levels, reduce the appearance of redness, and make skin smoother over time.
  • Prickly pear cactus extract contains linoleic acids, Vitamin E, and natural anti-inflammatory agents, which calm and soothe dry, irritated skin.
  • Niacinamide, aka Vitamin B3, stimulates the production of fatty acids to brighten, plump, and firm your skin. This essential vitamin also fills in holes in your skin’s moisture barrier to help your skin retain moisture.

CosMedix Shineless Moisturizer is available at milk + honey’s 2nd Street District, Hill Country Galleria, Houston, and South Lamar locations.

Meet Your New Beauty Bag Must-Have: NuFace’s Prep-N-Glow Cloths

March 29, 2017


NuFace’s new Prep-N-Glow cloths are a beauty bag must-have.  These easy-to-use wipes remove dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities that leave you with a soft and cleansed complexion.

The 411 on NuFace Prep-N-Glow Cloths


Nuface’s dual-sided cloths are designed to cleanse, hydrate, and gently exfoliate your skin. First, use the smooth side to cleanse your face. The soft cotton side removes makeup, dirt, and oil to leave you with a smooth, unblemished complexion. Then, switch to the textured side to gently exfoliate your skin. The micro-dots remove impurities that are trapped in your pores. Both sides of the cloth contain hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and minerals, all of which give you a refreshed and beautifully glowing complexion.

“I always carry these Prep-N-Glow Cloths in my bag. After a workout, I’ll quickly cleanse my face with these cloths to remove any sweat and dirt. I love how it gives my skin a refreshed and clean feeling.” — Summer S., Managing Director of Operations

NuFace’s Prep-N-Glow Cloths are free of oil, alcohol, and parabens. You can use these wipes as part of your daily routine and they’re ideal for prepping before a NuFace treatment.

About NuFace

NuFace is the brainchild of famed esthetician Carol Cole. As an esthetician, her clients would always ask her for anti-aging product recommendations. With the help of her daughters, Carol decided to launch the first NuFace device in 2005. NuFace devices utilize non-invasive microcurrent technology and help to reduce signs of aging. They are the only FDA-certified, at-home, non-invasive devices on the market.

NuFace’s Prep-N-Glow Cloths are available at all milk + honey locations.

Want a Brighter, Whiter Smile in Two Days? Hello, SmileActives!

May 26, 2016


Forget messy strips and gooey pastes — there’s a new, quick, and easy way to whiten your teeth with smileactives pens. They can brighten your smile up to 10 shades whiter in as little as two days! And to sweeten the deal? These stylish pens are available in five different flavors: Vanilla Mint, Spearmint, Winterberry, Chocolate Mint, and UltraMint.

Developed by biochemist, Eric Montgomery, and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert O. Wolf, smileactives pens are formulated with a potent base of 9% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. That’s almost three times the amount found in conventional whitening products! That’s not all, though. These pens contain 50 percent more whitening gel than other products, dry in 30 seconds, and one pen will last for at least a month when used twice daily. Unlike traditional strips and pastes, which are filled with harsh chemicals that can cause enamel erosion and lead to tooth sensitivity, these fast-acting pens have a high water content and utilize enamel-safe penetration technology to make those sensitivity issues a thing of the past.

Just like all of the products in our locations, smileactives pens passed our stringent clean ingredient inspection and are a safe way to enhance your already-gorgeous smile. Stop by your nearest milk + honey and pick up this must-have product.

Our Staff Picks: March Beauty Favorites

March 19, 2014


“My favorite service is our new Ultimate Pedicure. Getting a pedicure is usually about maintenance for me: soft feet, seasonal polish and a moment to relax. However, when I finally start to relax, my pedicure is usually ending and I’m left wanting more. The Ultimate Pedicure provides that extra massage and luxury that I am looking for. Almost a full hour and a half devoted to my tired calves and achy feet is the best!” — Teresa S., manager at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“I love Radiance from CosMedix for my daytime serum. It gives me a supple glow that I get compliments on all the time! I strive for healthy skin and Radiance helps me achieve just that. It feels great under my mineral makeup, too. A trick I like to use is to always make sure my face is damp (toner is great for this) before applying serum — this allows you to use less product (one pump is sufficient) and it spreads much easier.” — Brooke M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District

“The Signature Plus Facial is a dream come true for mature, stressed, or damaged skin. You enjoy our signature facial with cleansing, toning, extractions, mask, massage and moisture, then are treated to particle-free microdermabrasion that leaves your skin so soft and glowing. This treatment has helped me get rid of hyper-pigmentation and feel more confident about my skin.” — Emilie S., milk + honey HR

“My favorite can’t-live-without product is Kevin.Murphy Young Again oil. It’s great for all hair types and not greasy. It has repaired my damaged ends and continues to keep my hair shiny and healthy. Pro tip: it’s great on dry skin, too!” — Katie A., manager at milk + honey Arboretum Market

“I love Reflect by CosMedix! It’s a spray-on sunscreen that is light and not greasy. With the sunnier summer months approaching, it is essential! It’s the best! The spray-on SPF by Coola is also the bomb. It’s great for chasing down my nephews at the pool and spraying them quickly and easily. My nephew Connor loves it too. He says it makes his skin feel silky.” — Kelley W., assistant manager at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“Designed to thicken and plump thinning hair and prevent hair loss, the Kevin Murphy Plumping.Line helps with hair growth while boosting the appearance of fullness. I can tell an immediate difference in the texture and density of my hair after I shower. It’s milk + honey’s newest miracle.” — Summer L., general manager at milk + honey

“‘A Solution’ in the ResultsRx line is my fave. I love it because it has both vitamin A and alphahydroxys. It helps to break up dead layers of skin and promote faster cell turnover.” — Maureen, esthetician at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“I’m loving the Citrus Blossom Dermabrasion by EcoInventive. This all-organic exfoliant smells great and leaves your skin feeling like you just got a facial. It has a jojoba oil base so it moisturizes while it exfoliates. Pro tip: cleanse using the Citrus Blossom Dermabrasion, then cleanse once more with normal routine for freshest effect.” — Shawn, esthetician at milk + Honey Hill Country Galleria

“Aveda’s Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisturizer is the perfect sunscreen + hydration + skin tone secret weapon for you. Infused with finely-powdered tourmaline, it boosts skin’s energy and radiance and stays on for the entire day — even through exercise.” — Emilie S, milk + honey HR

“Let’s not forget about Fresh Hair from Kevin Murphy – it’s the BEST! I can go much longer in between blowouts because it keeps my hair oil-free and smelling great.” — Brooke M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District

“The Ultrasonic Treatment is my favorite. It is a short, relaxing service that leaves my skin glowing afterwards. If my skin is feeling dull, it brightens me right up!” — Chris W., milk + honey HR assistant

“One of my very favorites for perfect natural curls is the Deva Curl Light Defining Gel. With your hair wet, apply a generous amount to your hands and scrunch it up into your hair. When your hair is dry, shake the curls loose – the gel won’t leave any hard or sticky residue! Just soft beautiful curls.” — Alanah M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District

milk + honey’s First-Ever Bath and Body Line Is Finally Here

December 4, 2013

You may have already heard — or better yet, seen — about our exciting news, but allow us to make it officially official.

IMG_9160 copy

We’re proud to introduce to you our brand new, very own, all-organic bath and body line. With our name in flashing lights, or rather labelled across amber glass apothecary bottles, you can expect the same attention to detail, wellness, and results that you would receive at our spas. That means, every product has been handcrafted from the ground up in Austin.

We’ll start you off with a selection of milk + honey products below, slow and steady. But if you’d rather see the entire line right now, all you have to do is click here.

lip scrub - vanila - 400px

Lip Scrub No. 40 ($12) 

An early best-seller, and it’s not hard to see why. This gentle lip scrub doubles as both an easy-to-use pout perfecter and a sweet, sugar-y beauty treat. While available in two blends, the No. 40 scrub smells of warm vanilla and cardamom — the kind of scent that goes hand-in-hand with the holidays. Did we mention it’s kind of the best stocking stuffer ever? You’re welcome.

cream - no 16 - 8oz - 400px

Body Cream No. 16 ($32)

It’s dry out there, but hello, that doesn’t mean your skin has to succumb to the change in seasons. Our
No. 16 blend — infused with pink grapefruit, bergamot, and cardamom — makes moisturizing addictive with its subtle citrus scent and smooth finish. And the best part? Guys love it, too.

salts - no 18 - 20- 400px

Sore Muscle Soak ($24)

Whether this luxe soak first comes in handy due to holiday exertion or just a really good run, it’s the kind of bath time bliss that de-stresses and repairs. Arnica oil helps to heal and the eucalyptus and ginger oil wakes up weary limbs. Do you even need more convincing?

home fragrance - 400px

Home Fragrance ($20)

You asked. We listened. What exactly are we talking about? Oh, just that we’ve finally bottled up the signature milk + honey scent so you can bring a little piece of our spa sanctuary home with you.

As you can see, there’s not just one item to love. That’s why we’ll give you an additional $20 discount to any milk + honey product purchase over $100 when you pay with the PayPal mobile app {valid in-store only}. Say promo code “PAYPALPRODUCTS” when you head to the front-desk checkout. Now, you’ll never, ever have to pick favorites.
