Inspiration Behind the Name:

Lieutenant Colonel Marcella A. Hayes (“Marcy”) was the First African-American Woman Pilot In The Armed Forces. Ms. Hayes began her military career as an ROTC cadet at the University of Wisconsin and became the first Black female pilot in the U.S. military in 1979. She graduated Army Flight School at Fort Rucker, Alabama, earning her paratrooper badge during her training as a helicopter pilot.

Amiro Beauty

The AMIRO LumoMax is considered the most user-friendly LED light facial beauty device on the market. It delivers three times the energy output of comparable devices yet weighs only a third as much. This remarkable performance is made possible by a unique design featuring 21.5-degree star-cone-shaped reflector cups. This design pushes the boundaries of light therapy energy, delivering an impressive energy output of 177 mW/cm2, while maintaining a lightweight design of just 672g.

In comparison, other devices typically weigh around 1400g and only provide 70mW/cm2 of energy. The LumoMax also offers post-cosmetic surgery care and includes five daily modes — whitening, soothing, acne removal, sleep, and privacy. These modes can be easily activated with a single button.

The second product, the AMIRO S2 SEAL Skin-tightening Device, is the upgraded version of AMIRO’s original patented stamping beauty device. It offers precise anti-aging treatment through a four-color zoning mask, eliminating the need to switch devices or modes. The S2 boasts the highest energy output and the most light beads among similar products, doubling the effectiveness.

According to data from SGS, a globally recognized testing, inspection, and certification organization, 30 women who used the product for seven days saw a 17.98% reduction in cheek wrinkles, a 24.22% reduction in eye wrinkles, a 12.91% increase in cheek firmness, and a 9.72% increase in skin elasticity. The S2 also ensures safety with a 0.2mm ultra-thin double NTC sensor, which conducts temperature checks 100 times per second, a 3-second pre-heating technology that intelligently calculates and precisely outputs energy and an axial motion sensor that monitors micrometer-level motion trajectories.

Vieve’s Leaves

The Vieve’s Leaves Restorative Duo is a water-based Serum + Moisturizer combo that takes a gentler approach to retinol thanks to peptides and fruit stem cells (kiwi and apple!). With just two ingredients post-cleanse you can target dark spots, fine lines, and acne scars AND add up to 70% more moisture within 8 hours without clogging pores. Vieve’s Leaves is perfect for those who are looking for effective yet gentle products without having a 10-step skincare routine. In the 2023 Holiday Exclusive Gift Set, the white jade stone mushroom gua shas pair wonderfully with vieve’s leaves for when you’re looking to reduce inflammation and sensitivity brought on by the changing seasons and dryer temperatures. It comes perfectly packaged in a simple elegant white nylon cosmetic case so you’re never too far from smooth, hydrated skin.
