Business owners in Newport will agree: it’s a tough go out there. So when shops like Cosmetic Cosmos celebrate 10 successful years of bringing the beauty to the City-by-the-Sea, it’s something to cheer. Tomorrow, the Thames Street shop fêtes the fantastic feat by offering complimentary makeovers from 12-5 p.m. featuring their custom cosmetics. It’s the perfect excuse to get a glammed up for a Thursday night out on the town (if you haven’t heard, a new national survey shows Thursday has replaced Saturday as the most popular night to go out).
While there, check out their Green Tea Sun Protection line made with aloe, alpha lipoic acid, vitamins a and e, and green tea extract. The nutrient rich ingredients work to nourish and protect skin while wrinkle reducing peptides battle fine lines and prevent new ones from forming. Owner Sherry Brice embraces the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics and works with the Melanoma Foundation of New England. “I want people to be aware of the dangers of even brief exposure to the sun this time of year,” she says. Green Tea SPF 30+ is available in a moisturizing formula with peptides and an oil-free spray version.
