05 Apr Editor’s Fave: Indulge in Olive + M
Inspired by the incredible benefits of olive oil, Austin entrepreneur and beauty expert, Mariska Nicholson has created Olive + M, a yummy line of cleansing and hydrating body oils to renew and refresh the local beauty scene. Using fresh, natural ingredients dedicated to the wellness of the body and youthfulness of the skin, Olive + M now has launched 3 fabulous products. All formulas are free of GMO’s and man-made chemicals, and all of their products are handcrafted in Austin, Texas in small batches.
“OLIVE + M IS PART OF A MOVEMENT IN THE SKINCARE INDUSTRY TO GET BACK TO THE BASICS. CLEANSING AND HYDRATING WITH COLD- PRESSED PLANT BASED OILS IS A LUXURY TO DISCOVER.” – Mariska Nicholson, Founder
If you want to learn more and take a hands-on approach to beauty and wellness, we recommend their Body Kitchen by Olive + M, a one-of-a-kind, sublime skincare experience. Inspired by the bounty of Mother Nature and created with the fresh, local ingredients often found in the refrigerator and pantry of any American kitchen, Nicholson wanted to share her passion with patrons on a personal level. Designed for eight to ten guests, The Body Kitchen features a live kitchen display by the founder, who prepares hydrating and exfoliating masks and scrubs for the face and body, such as the wildly popular antioxidant-packed and cellulite-shrinking Coffee and Olive Oil body scrub. With her personally curated assortment of essential oils — each with its own properties that calm or invigorate the skin and senses — she will share unique DIY skincare recipes. It isn’t just farm-to-table; this is a farm-to-face experience.
