Stop by and visit with owners Janaki, Klee and Pascal in this friendly neighborhood grocery store and cafe.

I recently met up with Nadia over at Nadia Albano Inc to share with her the Belmondo goodness. She has since starting carrying Belmondo products in her beautiful, boutique-style studio at Granville and Robson. The collection she’s carrying includes: The Rain Face Cleanser, After the Rain Face Toner, The Cloud Face Cream and The Dunes Face Exfoliant.

Nadia is on a mission to educate, inspire and beautify the women and men of Vancouver with the intention of building confidence and helping people realize their potential. She does all this while providing exceptional quality service, with enthusiasm, in a beautiful, fun and welcoming environment. The studio was built in 1925. It's an underground lofty space and has an old-mixed-with-new design sensibility – think New York meets Paris.

Totally stoked to be featured in Vitamin Daily today:
They say Vancouver women have good skin because of the misty rain that leaves our faces supple and youthful.
Fact or fiction, when the weather takes a turn for the better, trust your visage to the new line of organic skin care products Belmondo, created by a Vancouver esthetician with family roots in Italy.
Belmondo (meaning beautiful world) uses wild crafted plants and herbs to create products like The Rain face cleanser ($26) with lavender, apple cider vinegar and rose, that instantly dissolves makeup and city grime and leaves the skin supple and fragrant. The After the Rain toner ($26) gives that dewy feel to the skin, like being caught in a Vancouver downpour. - SB

My packaging has been featured on Lovely Package and The Dieline. What an honour!
The response to David's design has been fantastic! David created a custom hand-rendered font to reflect the hand-crafted nature of the products.
Creative fellow, check it out!
I've also been listed as a favourite at ffffound.com
Thanks for the love-

I put love into every bottle and jar I package and I'm thrilled when I hear that my product has brought some happiness to someone else. The following email was sent to me and I wanted to share it with you...
As you can probably tell, I am a very pleased and satisfied customer. I found you through my niece, and we were discussing organic, ethically produced, cruelty-free, toxin-free cosmetics, and she recommended you. I am an organic farmer, so am particularly interested in buying organic products whenever possible.
I think my favourite thing from my first order is the face cream. My face was SO dry this winter, and after only a few days I can see a difference. The cream is so rich! It's a major treat for my winter-wizened skin! I've now ordered the heavy duty hand cream, as well, as my hands are in worse shape than my face.
I love the packaging, btw. It's not often you see glass anymore. I can understand why that might be, of course, but it adds a little cachet to the product. And glass is just as recyclable (that's probably not a word) as plastic. Possible more.
Meanwhile, good luck with this enterprise! I've already told lots of people about you, via Facebook as well as word of mouth. Take care.

Did you know that olive oil can be used to shave?
Instead of using a shaving cream, simply rub the area you'd like to shave with olive oil and pass the razor overtop, just as you would with a shaving cream. While the razor gently exfoliates and removes the unwanted hair, the olive oil lubricates and moisturizes the skin...your skin will remain soft and beautiful.
Try it next time you shave and let me know how you like it.
