Meet Your NEW Travel Beauty Companion


 
Hello MIYU Beauties!
 
Connie and I are truly excited to introduce our NEW travel-size and purse-friendly beauty essence serum mists. Ultra cute, and super convenient to carry with you, these multi-taskers will keep you fresh-faced + glowing where ever you go.
 

 
Along with the gorgeous new design + packaging you’ll notice we have a beautiful new sprayer too! We spent quite a bit of time (and effort) trying to find, and test, the perfect sprayer – not only because it had to be gorgeous, but it had to perform well with our mists as well.
 
MIYU’s plant-powered formulas are richer than your average facial mist, therefore more difficult to dispense through most sprayers. You’ll find some of the richer, heavier essences housed in a pour bottle, however we strongly felt the experience of spritzing an essence onto your face was just so much more refreshing – and relaxing.
 
The new sprayer dispenses a fine, all-over mist that will take you to your happy place, whenever you need a moment.
 

 

If you’re not familiar with beauty essences, here’s a little Beauty Essence 101: For years essences have been used in Asia, as an added step to your beauty routine, to treat, smooth and hydrate skin. Usually applied at the toner stage, the essence goes on after cleansing and before your serum and moisturizer.
 
If you’re thinking, who who has time for another skincare step? We’re with you. MIYU beauty essences simplify skincare, allowing you to skip steps instead. Use our essence to replace your toner and even your serum or moisturizer (in summer months). The leave-on step treatment infuses hydration deep into the skin, and because it’s so lightweight it can be applied generously (and layered) to help boost the effectiveness of any treatments that follow.
 

hydrate mi beauty essence: instantly hydrates, protects skin against age-accelerating free radicals, and revitalizes dull complexions.
 
de-stress mi beauty essence: calms inflammation + redness, fights stress induced free radicals, and rebuilds the skin barrier to reveal healthier, more resilient skin.
 

As part of our ongoing green initiative, our new beauty essence bottles are eco-friendly and recyclable, with all paper packaging printed on Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) paper.
 

 
Tell us what you think of our new travel serum mists. Or better yet, post a photo of your essence on social media + hashtag #miyubeauty for your chance to be included in our Instagram Gallery!

Beautiful Packaging, for a Beautiful Future


 
Hello lovelies!
 
Welcome back from your summer break.
 
It’s often said, the day after labour day marks the unofficial end to summer. Back to school, work, and reality.
 
While we’re sad to say goodbye to backyard tea parties and summer soirées, we can’t help but love this transitional period. It’s the perfect time for a beauty refresh or even a new look, even for us.
 
As Connie mentioned in her last post, we’ve been challenging ourselves in the last while, to create new tea packaging that is both beautiful, yet mindful of our ecological footprint. With that said, we are delightfully proud to introduce our new premium loose leaf teas + eco-friendly packaging.
 

 
MIYU’s signature teas are now housed in 100% recyclable tins and foiled pouches, including the labels – now printed on Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) paper. Each tea blend is available in two varieties. The deluxe edition: a gift-worthy tin, for those who love pretty packaging and the everyday edition: an adorable, resealable foiled pouch, for everyday use and/or refilling the tin.
 

 

The new tin canisters and pouches are available online at miyubeauty.com and at select retailers across Canada and the U.S.
 
We hope you love the revamp and the new look, and we encourage you to also be mindful of your impact to our planet, as we work together towards a beautiful future!

A Wonderful Start to the New Year as MIYU Beauty goes North America wide at Anthropologie

 

Happy New Year lovelies! We hope you had a wonderful and well-rested holiday!

 

To kick off 2016, we’re proud to announce MIYU Beauty is now available in all Anthropologie stores in North America, including Canada, the U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

 

Anthropologie New York City

 

We had the pleasure of finding out the incredible news while Connie and her family were back in Edmonton, Canada for the holidays. Note: that’s where I (Linda) am too :).

 

Check out Miss E’s adorable little cheeks as she watches the descent into Edmonton’s snowy city.

 

 

Since Connie was in town for the holidays we decided to visit the local Anthropologie store together. We happened to know Anthropologie would be carrying our beauty essence minis at all their North American locations soon, but we didn’t know exactly when… so… as you can imagine.. it was pretty exciting for us when we spotted our beauty essence minis on store shelves.

 

Anthropologie Edmonton

 

From the start, Connie has always dreamed of having her products carried at Anthropologie. With their gorgeously curated beauty collection – we think it’s definitely a perfect fit for MIYU.

 

Anthropologie Calgary

 

What a wonderful experience for Connie, her husband (he’s the guy who does all our MIYU photography), and myself, to share as a team. Of course, we couldn’t help but admire our beauty essence minis a half a dozen times more before we finally left the store.

 

 

Our de-stress mi and hydrate mi beauty essence minis can be found in over 200 Anthropologie stores across North America as part of Anthropologie’s beauty “smalls” collection. Full size beauty essences and teas can be purchased on anthropologie.com or as always on miyubeauty.com.

 

 

Cheers to a fabulous start to the New Year and may 2016 bring many more amazing MIYU milestones!

Beauty is a Lifestyle


 
 

Hello friends!
 
9 months and 4 cities later – our brand video is finally complete!

 
The journey began last year, as we worked with Connie’s step-sister, Nashwa (a newly minted filmmaker) to craft a story-telling piece that would convey MIYU’s fundamental belief – that “beauty is a lifestyle” and good health is a means to glowing, beautiful complexions.
 
We had so much fun storyboarding “a day in the life of” 5 different women and how each of them integrated MIYU into their lives, to savour their moment of “mi” time. All of us made an appearance in the video, including myself (as the businesswoman), Nashwa (the yogi), and Connie (playing real life part, first-time mom) with her adorable daughter, Emelia. Even Connie’s cat Chocco made a cameo! See if you can spot the furry little cutie.
 
A BIG thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this brand video possible – especially Nashwa for bringing our piece to life, AND Peter for all your help, always.
 
We hope our video will leave you inspired to love and take care of yourself from the inside out – you deserve it!
 


 

TWO WAYS TO WIN A PRETTEA LITTLE QUARTET – 10 winners will be chosen!

MIYU Beauty Launches in North America


 

After years of top-secret development and behind-the-scenes discussions with industry insiders, MIYU {pronounced mee-you} Beauty is now making its official debut in North America.  Drumroll please!!

 

As the first lifestyle beauty brand to artfully pair teas with skincare, MIYU expects to revolutionize the industry – aiming to redefine today’s beauty ritual.  Now we’re not saying to ditch your coveted creams and cleansers, but with MIYU’s unique tea and skincare pairings women can now effortlessly pamper their complexions from the inside out, in a delightful way.  What a concept!  At least we like to think so.

 

Founded by Canadian girl Connie Tai, MIYU’s innovative concept came about while she was living out her childhood dream developing skincare products for leading New York spa and beauty company Bliss spa.  During her time in NYC, Connie started developing skin sensitivities she never had before.  She soon realized the significant impact external factors had on her skin, including: poor diet, lack of sleep and stress.  She’s definitely not alone.  Empowered by this knowledge, Connie set out to create a line of effective products that could nourish the skin from within, while serving as a perfect complement to a healthy lifestyle.

 

Now enough of the history!  We know you’re dying to see our super cute website. Go to www.miyubeauty.com to check out our debut collection of pretty products, and to find out more about MIYU Beauty.

 

MIYU products can be purchased at select retail locations across Canada and the United States and soon online through our MIYU Beauty boutique.  Unfortunately, our e-commerce site won’t be up for another week or so, but happy window shopping for now!

introducing MIYU’s exclusive pre-launch hydrate mi beauty tea


 

Hello Gorgeous!

 

We’re hard at work developing the packaging, formulas and website for MIYU, and we want to include you on this journey.  I know many of you are eager to see, touch, and trial the products, so we thought we would offer an exclusive pre-launch tea for sale through Facebook.  So yes, drumroll please… we are featuring our lovely HYDRATE MI tea, which is designed to give you caffeine-free hydration.  Think of it as a guilt-free beverage that tastes unbelievably delicious! Our special blend is loaded with green rooibos, goji berries and a wonderfully aromatic white pear essence.  All of these ingredients have been handpicked by yours truly, for their natural content of skin-loving antioxidants.  Everyone who has tasted the tea so far has been in love!  And take it from me, the gorgeous white pear aroma is really to die-for.

So since this is a pre-launch item, we haven’t put the tea in its fancy packaging yet.  We’ve tried to ‘pretty’ up the white pouch, but trust us, the final packaging will be even more breathtaking.  At this time, we are offering this tea loose, but the final tea will come in lovely, little pyramid sachets.  Exciting, right?

 

 

I know many of you are striving to achieve all your health-related 2013 goals, and our HYDRATE MI tea is an effortless and enjoyable way to give you a boost to your healthy lifestyle.  After all, who doesn’t want a cup of warm tea that’s great for your skin, on a cold, wintery day?

Well, what are you waiting for?  Head over to our Facebook page now, and you too can be sipping HYDRATE MI tea, way before our brand even launches!
