Hearing the name “Mondavi” always makes us perk up, especially since we know that it means something about vineyards (and, as a result, wine) is going to enter the conversation (and hopefully our wine glass). So when we heard that Lydia Mondavi has created an organic cosmetics and skin-care line for women, we couldn’t help but listen up.
Designed around the idea that true natural beauty is not effortless, but instead comes from understanding, protecting, and nourishing the skin, 29 Cosmetics offers something that’s one of a kind: the benefits of grape seeds. Known for their protection against free radicals and pollutants, grape seeds are one of the most concentrated forms of anti-oxidants around — and Lydia makes sure they’re in each of her age-protecting products. The one we’re adding our makeup bag? 29 Preserves Eye Emulsion ($150). Great for dark circles and puffiness, this luxurious emulsion is made with a botanically derived active ingredient that helps restore tone and suppleness to the delicate skin around your eye … making your peepers appear even more wide-eyed when ordering another glass of Mondavi’s best (no worries — it’s sustainably farmed!).
