Not your everyday facial mist, our NEW Mist RX features plant-based waters for the ultimate in “plant-nutritional” hydration. This Daily Nutrient Facial Mist, spiked with super antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, potent plant and Fruit Stem Cells, Aloe and Kale Sprout Water, skin-boosting probiotics will give your skin an extra boost of protection using minerals and nutrients anytime it feels environmentally stressed or dehydrated. Mist lightly on your entire face area throughout the day for revitalized, refreshed and protected skin from minute by minute stressors.

“Our skin is bombarded from morning to night by toxic elements and free radicals. Environmental and physical stressors such as sun, wind, extreme cold, blue light exposure, and dirt can clog pores and leave a layer of impurities on our skin. These dehydrating and stressful factors lead to accelerated aging and skin damage. We developed our daily nutrient protecting mist which gives your skin exactly what it needs to help protect itself from these minute by minute stress factors.

*You can even apply on top of your make up. It’s super lightweight + refreshing without leaving any film on the skin. ” says Lisa and Lauren Goldfaden, Co-Founders of Goldfaden MD.”

Mist RX is formulated with a combination of super antioxidants, skin-boosting probiotics, plant-based microgreens, fruit stem cells, and nutrient-rich natural ingredients to keep your skin, comforted, refreshed and protected all day long.

What it does:

  • Protects against environmental + blue light stresses

Jennifer Lia’s series is an ode to the stunning beaches of Sydney – with her signature painting ‘ICEBERGS’  abstract take on the incredibly iconic Bondi pools, in Bondi Beach, Australia – Crisp fresh blues contrasting with sharp pool lanes inviting you to dive right in. We have been following her for years now and we love her work, passion and dedication that she brings to our creative world. 

“THE SIMPLICITY OF ICONIC ICEBERGS IS WHAT DRAWS ME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN.  THE CRISP POOLS OF AQUA AND TURQUOISE THAT PLAY OFF ONE ANOTHER.  THE WAY THEY SIT RIGHT UP ON THE OCEAN BEHIND THEM, MELTING INTO THE HORIZON AND SKY ABOVE.  THE STARK POOL LANES CONTRAST AGAINST THE SOFT WASHES OF BLUES AND INVITE YOU TO DIVE RIGHT IN.  I WANT YOU TO TASTE THE SALT SPRAY AND FEEL THE SUN’S RAYS WHEN YOU TAKE IN MY PAINTING.” Jen Lia 

Dive in as we get intimate with Jen and learn more about our exclusive collaboration together. 

What do you think about, creatively, when you’re collaborating on a project like this (do you have a standard approach to your process)?

I’m a big believer in collaboration when the ethos and vibe of brands or artists are aligned.   That’s where I think a lot of exciting and unexpected work can happen and why I was so happy to collaborate with Goldfaden MD.  Creatively, I consider what story we want to tell and mock up colour palettes and composition to reflect this.

Where did you get your initial idea for your paintings?

I’ve grown up on the beaches of Sydney and I have a lot of happy memories that inspire what I paint.  My work is really a celebration of our incredibly special coastline.  My ‘Icebergs’ work is probably the piece I’m best known for and I wanted to transport the viewer to a familiar place in a new way that has a universal attraction for locals and travellers alike.  When you take in my work, I want you to feel the breeze, taste the salt air and feel like you could dive right in,

Where do you find inspiration?

I’ve always been drawn to the magic of the ocean and colour palette of blues, aqua and turquoise.  I find inspiration from simply being around water and out in nature.  I also love reading artist’s biographies and visiting galleries all around the world.

Did you always want to be an artist?

Yes, I have, ever since I was a little girl.  I would find any chance to draw and paint.  My high school book covers were always covered with sketches and I started painting small canvases and selling at Bondi Markets as a teenager.

Background on your phone?

My beautiful baby boy, James Romeo and my husband Hayden James.

What are your go-to daily beauty products and why?

Goldfaden MD Detox clarifying cleanser – love the foam texture and my skin feels so fresh and clean without feeling dry.

Drunken Elephant  C-Firma Day Serum – Brightens and absorbs into the skin easily.

Go To Ultra Useful Face Cream – Love the smell and it really hydrates, especially being in air con all day.

Goldfaden MD Doctors Scrub – it really works!  I just glow after using it. It’s my favourite exfoliant.  

Goldfaden MD – Fleuressence oil – Super hydrating.  It’s my nightly ritual.

Why is clean beauty important for you?

It’s important to know what’s going into my skin.  I’m always looking at ingredients on products and feel there are so many incredible natural alternatives that deliver results, why would you use chemicals?

How do you de-stress?

Beach walks, Netflix and glass of red.

Favorite mood-boosting meal?

Homemade Pesto Pasta.

What is your daily mantra?

Be kind to yourself.

Take it a day at a time.

We are so honored to be featuring an intimate interview that we had with Hannah Habes, from Matchaful  –  a female founded, matcha purveyor that offers organic, sustainably sourced, premium grade product.  We are the only retail brand to offer single-estate matcha, which marks a huge step forward in the matcha supply chain – assuring consumers of the authenticity and provenance of their matcha, from farm to whisk. They have café in lower SoHo, NYC, complete with a ceremonial matcha bar and a plant-based seasonal food and beverage menu (a must goto spot in NYC!).

Hannah Habes founded Matchaful in 2015, in Brooklyn, NY, to bring high-quality, sustainably & transparently sourced matcha to more people.

Through their 1% FTP membership, they support organizations that help to strengthen sustainable food systems through sustainable agriculture, education and tackling food waste (just one part of why we love this company so much!).  

THEIR FARM:

Matchaful works directly with organic, sustainable, family farms in Japan – sourced from 7th and 4th generation farms in Uji and Shizouka, Japan.

Their farmer in Shizouka is using organic food waste as fertilizer and growing the matcha trees under solar panels, as a means to provide alternative energy to the local community.

Matcha is one of the most powerful ingredients offering a variety of health benefits including;

  • Is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg.
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories.
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally.
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body.

What does good food mean to you?

Good food means it’s nourishing and delicious. It’s food that should make you feel great and give you more energy, not weigh you down. Before I started Matchaful, I was eating a ton of processed food that left me feeling really sluggish and always wanting more. To me, it’s important to eat meals that have fiber, protein and greens that leave me feeling satisfied. I also try to eat fresh organic foods with simple ingredients so that I’m feeding my body the best I can, and avoiding unnecessary “fillers” or “stabilizers.”

How do you start your mornings?

With either oatmeal or a smoothie. I mix in plant based protein powder no matter what. Because I’m breastfeeding, I make sure to eat a hearty breakfast and protein-rich meals. I supplement with probiotics and prenatal vitamins.

What’s your go-to am beverage?

That’s easy — a matcha or matcha latte. Normally I’ll mix in a few adaptogens to help elevate my mood and a tsp of maple syrup. Right now, I’m loving moringa as it helps to boost milk production.

What are your must use daily beauty products?

I definitely like to mix it up but I’m a big oil based skincare fan. I’m loving Goldfaden’s Fleuressence oil. I use it first thing in the morning to help give my skin a nice natural glow.

How do you de-stress?

Right now, small moments of self care help me to decompress. Being a mom and working full-time doesn’t afford me a lot of free time, but taking a long shower or evening bath help me destress after a long day. Going to the gym or doing a 20-min floor workout also help me to boost my mood and alleviate stress in the morning.

Favorite mood-boosting meal?

At our cafe, we offer a black rice onigiri with avocado and cashew cream cheese. This meal gives me the perfect pick-up while not overfilling me. It’s an amazing energy booster in the middle of my day.

What’s a dinner recipe you currently have on repeat?

Black bean spaghetti pasta with garlic, lemon, and topped with sauteed kale and parsley.  

What is your daily mantra?

I try to live by the Japanese proverb, “ichi-go ichi-e.” It translates to “savor each moment, for it only lasts once.”
