When we first opened the Miki Miette and Ji Intimates Flagship store back in November, we knew that we would dedicate our small space to carrying only the highest quality of curated products – many of which are handmade locally, eco-friendly and sustainable. That philosophy especially rings true for our selection of hand-picked skincare products.
When we came across Honey Belle a few months ago via a rabbit-hole internet search of “eco friendly skincare”, a love affair was born. Their website touted impressive claims that their products were curing psoriasis and eczema in long time sufferers. Many were also comfortable going make up free in public because their skin looked that good.
Iris Cherng, the founder & CEO of Honey Belle skincare came from a family of doctors so it comes as no surprise that this young entrepreneur discovered a passion for the health and beauty industry as well. Her mother started developing allergies to the harsh ingredients in commercial products & Iris herself had suffered from psoriasis. Equipped with all of the knowledge she had acquired from her parents over the years, Iris started experimenting with all-natural recipes in her kitchen and started replacing her daily products with those she made with simple organic ingredients. In no time, both her and her mother’s symptoms had dissipated & Iris knew she was onto something spectacular.
She started by sharing her handcrafted products with her friends and family, who were eager to experience the same transformative results. Before long, she found herself tapping into the eco-friendly skincare industry. A thriving business was born & Iris soon found herself traveling from farmers markets to trade shows, indie beauty expos and pop up shops all over the country.
Though we carry a vast selection of Honey Belle cult- favorite products like the ‘Foaming Face Wash’ or the ‘Hydrating Facial Tonic’, we were thrilled to host an intimate pop up shop at our boutique to share the entire face + body collection with our customers. The pop up shop was a huge success, causing us to sell out of our favorite top sellers. Stay tuned for future exciting collaborations at our boutique!
