Allure's Best of Beauty: Avène Cleansing Foam, Mattifying Fluid, T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i

Bookmark and Share Posted on 10/02/2013

Each year, Allure honors the “Best of Beauty,” naming the 14 most innovative products of the year. b-glowing brands have graced the list yet again for 2013 with two products in the top 14 and two more receiving honors for hair. Read all about the products, and learn what makes them rank among the best!

Eau Thermale Avène Cleansing Foam and Mattifying Fluid: The formula is loved for its ability to cut down on oil production without leaving skin dry. Instead, it helps users achieve a matte finish. Although each can be used separately, using them together creates the best results. Both are paraben-free and leave the T-zone looking T-errific.

 

 T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i: The original T3 Featherweight is winner of four Allure “Best of Beauty” picks. The Luxe 2i model has been optimized for speed, drying medium-textured hair in only 7 minutes (faster than the original)! The innovative tool evaporates the water on the hair fast enough that the mois

ture in the strands isn’t stolen—so your hair is never damaged. It also reduces frizz and increases both body and shine. Talk about Featherweight Champion.

“Best of Beauty” Hair honor for Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray: Help your hair before styling by protecting it against heat damage. This dry-spray uses keratin proteins to nourish hair while defending it, too. You can use before styling, to reshape, or on wet hair before blow drying.

“Best of Beauty” Hair Honor for Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls Conditioner: Honey nectar and ginseng control frizz often associated with naturally curly hair, while leaving the hair gorgeously vivid. Its moisture boost works to define and control curls, plus detangles without adding weight.

Behind the Brand: Tammy Fender » -

We’re devoted fans of Tammy Fender’s holistic skincare line—a natural force to be reckoned with. b-glowing brings you an insider look at Tammy—both the woman and the brand—as she shares her inspiration, her favorite products, and her personal skincare routine.

Shop Tammy's beauty must-haves here.

What are your favorite b-glowing.com brand products?

My favorite b-glowing products are Plus Clarisonic, Eve Lom Muslin Cloths, Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Hair Brush, Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, Kai Parfum, and Ilia Lipstick Crayon.

Although I love all of the formulations, there’s a quick, five-minute fix that does wonders for the skin, using my Epi-Peel and Quintessential Serum. First, The Epi-Peel reinvigorates the skin, increasing circulation and bringing oxygen to the surface, while sloughing off dead cells. Then the Quintessential Serum provides instant nourishment and leaves skin with a luminous glow—a little lipstick and mascara and off you go!

What inspired you to create your own skincare line?

My collection was born in the treatment room, though it expresses my lifelong passion for holistic living. I trained as an aesthetician, but also studied botany, aromatherapy, and holistic chemistry. I began blending my own custom formulas in my kitchen to suit my clients' needs.

Once they experienced good results, word spread—friends told friends, and, happily, the line grew from there.

What one product would you recommend to someone who has never tried Tammy Fender and why?

People go wild for our Quintessential Serum, which is super concentrated, deeply moisturizing, and provides rich replenishment and nourishment for the skin. This includes a powerful dose of the fatty acids, gamma linolenic acids, and antioxidants skin craves.

The serum penetrates skin at the cellular level and, thanks to its purity, is easily absorbed by the body. It both strengthens and soothes skin, while bringing the body, mind, and spirit into holistic balance. It's really an all-in-one. I use it as a moisturizer on my face, hands, and elbows, but also several times a day on my lips, around my eyes, and at the tips of my hair to encourage a healthy shine.

What is your personal skincare routine?

One of the amazing things about skin is that it is constantly under transformation and actually wholly regenerates itself approximately every 27 days. My skincare routine shifts as I sense changes in what my skin needs.

Right now, before sleeping, I like to wash away the day's pollutants with Tammy Fender Cleansing Milk. I follow with Chamomile Tonic, which supports the vascular system wonderfully and has such a heavenly scent. I use a bit of Capillary Strengthening Blend, which is full of carrot seed extract—an excellent, natural source of Vitamin A.

I don't always re-cleanse in the mornings, as it's nice to let the natural oils be. So I begin early in the day with energizing Essential C Tonic and finish with a bit of Quintessential Serum to rejuvenate and protect the skin.

What is your go-to makeup look?

My makeup look is super simple. If I do wear any makeup at all, I use a little mascara and Afterglow Lipstick in "Secret."

Favorite fashion piece in your closet?

The looks that I love best are always simple white clothes that are feminine and beautiful. I like to wear those with jeweled sandals, though I can't get along without a pair of go-with-everything heels. Bohemian tunics are another favorite, and I have a real weakness for beaded jewelry.

How did you develop your brand's philosophy of Pure Living Energy, and how do you implement that philosophy within your company?

My beauty philosophy is rooted in ancient holistic medicine, which emphasizes that overall health is achieved by treating each person holistically, on the spiritual, emotional, and physical levels.

When I meet with a client, I take into account the whole person, addressing imbalances on every plane. In the same way, Pure Living Energy underlines the interconnectedness and the synergy between our lives and the world around us. The energy of plants and flowers harnessed by my formulas is tremendously healing, and that life force can be transmitted to every cell of our being.

All of us working together harmoniously at Tammy Fender have made it our mission to support our clients in achieving healthful lifestyles as we all find our way to a natural state. We love to share in the beauty, radiance, and joy that can only come from within.

Tell us what to expect from Tammy Fender in the near future.

Tammy Fender is growing as a luxury brand. We're slowly expanding into new global markets, and we always have exciting new products in the works.

We recently introduced our Cellulite & Stretch Mark Smoothing Solution, which is remarkable, effective, and uniquely healing. We've got many more revolutionary ideas to come!

Celebrities have the best access to the best brands. But here’s a secret: so do you! 

She Finds is dishing on the “50 Beauty Products Celebrities Can’t Live Without,” and b-glowing brands are among the chosen ones. 

LaLicious Sugar Kiss Scrub, picked by Emma Roberts: It’s a b-glowing staff favorite, too! A perfect combination of citrus, rose, and vanilla is an absolute treat for your senses. Plus, it’s a moisturizing exfoliator that you can simply rub on then rinse before stepping out of the shower. It’s natural and hydrating, so you can even skip your post-shower lotion application (you’ll smell amazing). 

Editor’s Note: After rinsing the scrub away, you can achieve a close shave for silky smooth results.

Rosebud Salve, picked by Selena Gomez: It does everything you’d expect from a great lip balm: moisturizes and calms for more kissable lips. But what makes it special is its ability to heal skin irritation and sooth minor burns. It’s not pucker exclusive; you can use it on dry elbows, nail cuticles, knees, or even for diaper rash! Which begs the question, would a Rose by any other name smell as sweet (or do as much)? 

St. Tropez Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, picked by Carrie Underwood: Streaking is a verb—not an adjective to describe your tan. With St. Tropez’s Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, this holds true, as you’ll achieve the perfect glow for days, without leaving behind any evidence.

WEI Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, picked by Demi Moore: Demi makes aging look easy (and practically nonexistent). With Wei’s Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, you, too, can tackle dehydration, sagginess, dullness, redness, and loss of elasticity. The travel friendly pads are suitable for even the most-sensitive skin, and you’ll see results in just 10 minutes.
