Luxe for Less

Posted on 04/15/2014

Shop b-glowing.

We love curating products that speak to every beauty devotee, including various price points! You can still have high-quality products, but at a lesser cost, which really means you can shop even more. Is there anything better than a burgeoning beauty collection? We don’t think so!

Giulietta Mini Eau de Parfum- TOCCA: This floral scent is just right for the spring and summer months, with notes like Bulgarian Rose, Ylang Ylang, Lilac, and Heliotrope. We’re also pretty sure it’s a scientific fact that things in mini form are off the charts in cuteness, and due to the smaller size you can travel with this little luxury.

 

Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream- 100% Pure: At $11 for this eye cream, you’re really getting a bang for your buck, and we like to keep one in our purse, at our desk, and in our bathroom cabinets. Infused with caffeine-rich green tea that works to de-puff and even brighten under eye circles, you can feel safe knowing that this eye cream is 100% naturally derived.

 

Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30- Paula's Choice: It can be hard to find the balance between coverage and camouflage, and that’s why we’re really liking this Barely There Sheer Matte Tint. You will see an evened skin tone and complexion while it works to fight against the signs of aging. It’s the perfect amount of moisture that will have your skin looking healthy but not shiny, with SPF 30 as an added bonus.

 

Shampoo with Pomegranate- Klorane: This affordable shampoo will keep your hair color more vibrant between trips to the salon, and you won’t have to worry about any harsh stripping agents. Your hair will also smell fresh with a hint of pomegranate, which is always a good thing! Pair with the Pomegranate Conditioner to repair color and chemically treated hair.

BY TERRY Baume de Rose Obsession

Posted on 04/11/2014

Shop b-glowing.

We’re obsessing over BY TERRY’s Baume de Rose, which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Created by Terry de Gunzburg out of her adoration for roses, this product quickly became a cult favorite for lips in desperate need of relief. “I dreamed of the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the lip balms, a beauty must-have that would wonderfully transform even the most damaged lips,” she says.

Working with her research labs, Terry found a melt-in balm packed with lipo-regenerating substances, with the nourishing power of rose wax, hidden amongst the formulas. They discovered “a nourishing, replenishing, anti-aging formula that would leave the lips plumped, younger looking and radiant with vitality. We were about to invent the ‘jewel’ of lip care!” Terry says.

The baume was Terry’s first “ode” to the rose, which, when touched, feels much like skin. “Indispensable in all seasons, this rare treasure of nutrients makes sure lips are soft, smooth, plump, and revitalized, and keeps cuticles looking trim,” Terry says.

Now, 10 years old, it’s become a beauty staple for countless women...b-glowing included! For the anniversary, Baume de Rose has a special look, covered in graffiti hearts. With a silver loveheart design, the limited-edition jar is a stylish vanity companion.

If you’re ready to try this cult-classic, obsession-worthy pick, shop now!

The Gentlemen of Blind Barber

Posted on 04/07/2014

Shop b-glowing.

The men of Blind Barber have always been about community. With their shops in New York and California, they’ve become a place for guys to gather and groom. It’s where men kick back, grab a shave over a cocktail, and connect.

Blind Barber is a lifestyle, where individuality is expressed through creativity. The coolest, most kind guys of the barbershop world are experts in grooming, of course; but beyond that, they’re also advocates for the community.

They've turned facial hair into a way to show they care through such organizations as Mustaches for Kids (they grow, as does support for children's charities) and No Shave November. They've also partnered with the likes of Terrell Owens to raise research funds for Alzheimer's Association, and worked to gather toiletries for Culver City's local non-profit, Beauty Bus.

For these reasons and more, we’re honoring Blind Barber as our first Man Crush Monday brand. Not only do they create superior grooming products that help save time and frustration (we especially love Regimen’s easy three-step system) but they also give back to the community they’ve worked so hard to create.

Ready to spoil your your own Monday Man Crush? Shop Blind Barber now.

On the Bright Side

We’re always thrilled to covet butter LONDON’s newest collection, and the newest—Lolly Brights—is bold and playful! The lacquers, Lippy’s, WINK eye pencils, CHEEKY cream blush, and WINK mascaras are tinted for more than a pop of color, but rather for a burst of color.

You can mix and match shades, or go full-on colorful, for a dynamic look that’s sure to turn heads. The brand’s obsession with color and passion for creativity is never in short supply, and we were feeling truly inspired when we put our own Lolly Brights look together.

Cult Classic Beauty: 100 Percent Pure

Posted on 03/27/2014

Shop b-glowing’s Cult Classic Picks.

At b-glowing.com, we pride ourselves on introducing beauty devotees to new, innovative brands. But how do you know which products to try within a new brand you've only just discovered? In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques (say that five times fast), we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

One of the newest brands to b-glowing is 100% Pure. As you may have guessed, all of the brand’s products are made using only all-natural, organic, and vegan ingredients, and everything is toxin-free.

What especially makes this brand unique is how it’s created and how it’s colored. The makeup is all fruit-dyed, bath + body and hair products come in scents reminiscent of the farmers market, and the skincare line uses super foods for a luminous glow.

Some of our favorites include the Argan Oil Hydration SPF 30, which protects against skin cancer, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark sun/age spots by using 100% natural, 100% vegan, and gluten-free ingredients. As spring begins to shine, this product will be an absolute necessity for healthy skin!

For added color this season, we also love the Lip & Cheek Tint that uses pure fruit pigment to add natural looking color while softening and moisturizing. Designed as a cream blush and a lip tint, the formula is highly concentrated with anti-aging ingredients, vitamins, and antioxidants.

After all the fun, we recommended the Super Fruits Night Balm, which uses the most powerfully anti-aging fruits from around the world with the highest ORAC value of antioxidants for aggressive age corrective treatment of your skin. Suggested for mature skin types, you’ll glow with a youthful radiance.
