Back to Basics with Clean Hair Brand, Briogeo
Jun. 30, 2020
Briogeo combines the best of science and nature, to deliver powerful, naturally based formulas for all hair textures and types. "Brio" is Italian and means "vibrant and full of life" - representing not only the busy NYC in which the brand was born, but the considerate, lively and artistic packaging that you’ll find wrapped around each formula. "Geo" is a Latin word meaning "of Earth and nature," which represents the pure, yet strong ingredients behind each formula. Briogeo’s cult favorite products are not a secret—they’re the buzz everywhere! Beauty editors, influencers and consumers have fallen in love with their clean, high-performance hair care. Nancy Twine, CEO and Founder of Briogeo quotes: “We should treat our hair the same way we treat our skin; by nurturing it with ingredients that detoxify, hydrate, and protect.” Nancy also believes that “beautiful hair shouldn’t be compromised by harsh or harmful ingredients.”
Briogeo is absolutely inspired by New York City's vibrant culture and core values, which promotes an appreciation for individuality, positivity and authenticity. Their texture-specific products offer something for everyone – from repair, to volume, to caring for curls. All products are 90-100 percent naturally derived and their formulas are cruelty-free, gluten free and mostly vegan. Since honesty means everything to this brand, they include the exact percentage of naturally derived ingredients (and its origin) on the back of every bottle to make the labels as transparent as possible. Nancy’s products are proudly made with no harsh sulfates, no silicones, no parabens are cruelty free and ethically sourced.
Nancy Twine, is a veteran when it comes to her knowledge in the beauty industry– in fact, she made her first impression into the world of natural product creation at the age of just five. During childhood visits to her grandmother’s home in West Virginia, Nancy would assist her to create homemade hair care for the ladies in the small town. She moved to New York in her early twenties and transitioned from her homemade essentials for the store-bought variety, but quickly realized that the natural hair care on the market simply did not live up to its performance claims. So there it was, inside her East Village studio apartment and using her grandmother's trusted beauty recipes as well as strong scientific backing, Nancy founded Briogeo Hair Care. She takes it back to basics, offering a high-performance, hair care collection that is naturally based, yet performance driven to provide visible results.
Briogeo products include a proprietary blend of potent Natural Oils, Vitamins, and Antioxidants which are the basis for every product formula. They never use superficial ingredients and their products address immediate hair concerns while building the foundation for long-term healthy, nourished, and beautiful hair.
The brand has a strong following of 3.6k on Instagram and 2.4k on Youtube. The Briogeo website is incredibly user friendly and there's even a hair care quiz you can complete to find out their best product for your concerns. You can also earn rewards when you purchase Briogeo products or even just interact with their brand.

Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
