B-Glowing Founder Lisa James on Honest Passion

Bookmark and Share Posted on 04/23/2012

In a recent interview with b-glowing founder Lisa James, Marula Beauty learned about Lisa’s ardor for beauty products, dreaming big, empowering women, and honest passion. The b-glowing.com website was born of Lisa’s lifelong passion for beauty products, which started with wanting to work at a drug store makeup counter. Her obsession with cosmetics was later confirmed with her self-prescribed makeup therapy session, when she charged too much money to her credit card at a department store’s beauty counters after a heart-wrenching breakup with a boyfriend.

During the interview, Lisa shared that b-glowing materialized from her honest passion for beauty products, which is why the beauty brands represented on the site must have their own independent spirit and a passion that reaches out to consumers. In addition to benefiting consumers, the beauty product companies must also give back to the world.

As a woman entrepreneur, Lisa believes it’s important to support young girls and women so they learn to live a life without limitations. As a strong supporter of this cause, Lisa and the b-glowing crew regularly work with women’s shelters in the Portland, Ore. area by providing much-needed hygiene and beauty products. While hygiene products are an obvious necessity, the beauty products the women receive help prepare them for job interviews and give them a needed boost in courage and self-esteem. Plus, the fine beauty products help the women feel beautiful, empowered and hopeful that a better life is within reach.

Facial Wrinkles Defined: Nasolabial-Fold vs. Marionette Lines » -

Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Turbo Face SerumYou can’t stop the aging process, but you can slow it down. As you grow (ahem) wiser, some of the most common wrinkles that start to form are those known as “smile lines.”

The truth is that smiling doesn’t necessarily form wrinkles around your mouth – in fact, it can actually help prevent them. The lines that appear around the mouth might actually be “nasolabial-folds” or “marionette lines.” The reduction of elastin and collagen fibers in your face can make these lines more pronounced. A Peter Thomas Roth Labs consumer study found that the nourishing compounds in one of the skin care company’s products stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the appearance of these unwanted signs of a full life.

The Nasolabial-Fold

Nasolabial-folds are lines that form from the sides of your nose down to the sides of your mouth. These lines form because of sun damage, loss of muscle tone, smoking, gravity and loss of fat in this area of the face. Some cosmetic dermatologists may prescribe hyaluronic acid injections over a 9- to 12-month period to help diminish the appearance of these lines.

«Tammy Fender Epi Peel: A Facial in a Jar -

Tammy Fender Epi PeelLooking like they came off the shelves of an old-school luxury apothecary, Tammy Fender skin care products take a holistic approach. Tammy Fender’s line offers immediate therapeutic effects that help promote health and healing on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. One of the best ways to introduce yourself to the purity and luxury found in these products is with a facial in a jar.

About the Tammy Fender Epi Peel

The Tammy Fender Epi Peel is an all-in-one product that features rosemary, a symbol of vitality, and spearmint, which helps with the preservation of youth. Combined with purifying clay, the Epi Peel is a multi-purpose exfoliating mask and peel. The micro-exfoliants in the oxygenating and revitalizing formula gently help remove dead surface cells, eliminate impurities, refine pores and polish your skin.

Apply the Tammy Fender Epi Peel up to three times a week to clean skin; let it sit for five minutes, and use a moist cloth to remove. This peel is great for all skin types, except those that are sunburned or have pustular acne.
