A limited edition version of Dr. Dennis Gross’s Pewter FaceWare Pro has arrived at Sephora. The medical grade LED device features the same technology as the original, but is available in a different colour, as requested from the brand by none other than — fun fact — Big Sean (?!?!).

REN Skincare’s groundbreaking #WeAreAllies initiative aims to reduce cosmetic packaging waste
In a first for the beauty industry, clean skincare brand REN has launched a groundbreaking initiative to reduce cosmetics packaging waste. Partnering with fellow clean brands Biossance, Youth to the People, Herbivore and Caudalie, the We Are Allies campaign, led by REN’s CEO, Arnaud Meysselle, sees the four brands unite with a shared goal of helping tackle the environmental impact of packaging waste, 70 percent of which currently ends up in landfills in the U.S. “From concept we were excited and at the same time conscious of the realities of whether brands would be willing to commit to the idea of working on environmental challenges with their ‘competitors’,” says Meysselle. “We were hugely inspired to be met with such shared enthusiasm for a common sustainability purpose and shared values by clean brands we’re proud to now call our allies. Taking action to reduce waste in the beauty industry is a challenge; together we can share ideas and pioneer new solutions to reduce packaging waste while raising awareness and inspiring other brands to join us with their sustainability efforts. It is the sharing of the knowledge of the collective that has the power to make a real, meaningful and scalable difference.”
