Debra Atlas: The Hickey Stick covers more than embarassing hickies
By Debra Atlas
Saturday, August 10, 2013I recently tested a product called The Hickey Stick, an organic two-step concealer/cover-up stick from G2Organics.
Used by both men and women, its thick, rich formula gives easy coverage. It works well to cover breakouts, scars, bruises, tattoos, razor cuts — and embarrassing hickies. It can even be used under eye shadow to conceal those dark circles.
Cherie Corso, one of G2Organics’ co-founders, says her daughter even uses The Hickey Stick to treat mosquito bites.
The Hickey Stick is made with non-toxic natural and organic ingredients. It contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or lanolin, but includes ingredients such as rosemary, zinc oxide and Vitamin E.
Corso, an entrepreneur and a print model, and her partner, Marie Elena Lamarie, a finance major, entrepreneur and cosmetologist, take health and healing to heart. Since launching their company in 2009, they have become a leader in green beauty, producing safe, organic, eco-friendly, non-toxic products good for both consumers and the environment.
Both women are Reiki Master healers. A hands-on healing method, Reiki plays a part in all the products their company offers. All of their products are Reiki charged or imbued with Reiki healing energy.
Corso has been a guest on the Dr. Oz show, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal and other noted venues about her company and its natural products. She realizes that not everyone can do everything organic. But, she says, “If you do one or two things (green) in your beauty routine, you help lessen the impact of the chemicals you’re using on your body (and) in the environment.”
“Every little bit helps,” she said.
The Hickey Stick is a two-stick, two-step system. The first stick acts as a primer to mark what you want to conceal. The second stick neutralizes the first, to give even coverage. It’s available in both light and dark shades to match any skin tone.
Priced at $24.95 for two sticks, a portion of sales goes to help cancer research.
