We bond with Bono over beauty

21 November 2008


A far as beauty launches go, Nude Skincare's press event at The River Café was about as A-list as it gets. In fact we'd go so far as so say that if we were giving prizes for the best beauty launch of the year this would probably be it. After all, it's not often we get to dine with rock royalty, which is exactly what happened when Bono joined us for dinner. In case you're confused, Bono is husband to Ali Hewson, who's an investor, along with founder Bryan Meehan to Nude Skincare. And they're all friends with Christy Turlington, who's a HUGE fan of the 99% synthetic free range...get the picture? So after chatting music (Bono tells us U2's new album is out early next year, which we've heard is so good it's set to blow Joshua Tree off its pedestal) and, er, mascara (from a shoot apparently but more on that another time) with the rock legend wasn't enough, we then walked away with a gigantic goody bag of Nude products including the cult Cleansing Facial Oil and legendary Hydrate Supplements. We haven't tested them all yet - there's only so many you can try in one morning after all. But we will say this. If Ali Hewson's mind-blowingly gorgeous complexion is an indicator, anything from this super-luxe skincare line a safe investment.
