Shop CV Skinlabs range here!
The latest skincare addition to b-glowing has a very special story. Even before we experienced the products we were drawn to founder Britta Aragaon's amazing story as to what inspired her to create this small but effective skincare range. After watching her father suffer through the weakening effects to his hair, skin and nails due to cancer treatments as well as her own battle with Hodgkin's Disease, she realized that there were no products on the market that delivered what they promised. Sensitive skin types and even more so people who are dealing with disease typically can't find products that are gentle enough to be used on their skin and that won't further aggravate and inflame, even when they are marketed toward them. CV Skinlabs was born to meet this need.
CV Skinlabs specialize in creating products with safe and healing solutions that offer real relief from all types of skin conditions. Although the range is small, it is mighty in its purity and healing formulations that are truly worthy of being called safe. If you suffer from eczema, chronic dryness or looking for safe skincare products to use on medically treated skin this dermatologist and toxicologist formulated brand can be worn with peace of mind. Without further adieu, here they are:
The Body Repairing Lotion is an ultra soothing and hydrating lotion for a fragile and irritated skin, even one compromised by chemotherapy, dermatitis or more serious skin conditions. Calming Moisture is a face, neck and scalp moisturizer that soothes and hydrates flushed skin recovering from post chemotherapy procedures, microdermabrasion and chemical peels to restore even skin-tone and a healthy radiance. CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray has been getting some amazing press this summer because of it's ability to magically heal bug bites, sunburns, and giving cooling relief for itchy skin. Simply spritz this refreshing spray with natural ingredients on face and/or body instantly feel soothed. The Restorative Skin Balm is an advanced therapy for severely sunburned and wounded skin. This protective salve can be put anywhere dry or chapped, from nails, cuticles, new scars, etc. All of these products are designed to really care for your skin and ease any discomfort without having to worry about the possibility of further irritation.

Going from normal skin to a problematic one has been my issue ever since going off birth control. It was a real shocker how quickly your skin's texture and tone can change from smooth to bumpy and I'm not the type to go down without a fight. My weapon - The Clarisonic Acne Mia2. Complete with a new acne cleansing brush head that will remove dirt, oil and impurities and safe enough to use up to twice daily and also including a powerful Daily Clarifying Cleanser with 2% salicylic acid, there is nowhere for acne to hide. Clarisonic devices utilize sonic technology and gentle vibration (brush head rotates 300 times per second) to gently and efficiently remove congestion while also simplifying the cleansing process.
Shop Color Club nail polish here!
The path to finding a great quality nail lacquer doesn't necessarily mean you have to break the bank. Color Club nail polish fills the void of the beauty junkie who wants a beautiful selection of high quality lacquers in neons, metallics and mattes at an affordable price. At only $8 a bottle you can be on your way to rocking the latest nail trends straight off the catwalk or seen in the professional nail salon.
Some of our favorite Color Club polishes are neon shades like Poptastic! This bright pink has been regularly seen around the office this summer because of it's bold, no one can ignore me hue. What we love the most about Color Club besides the affordability is that its totally safe with a formulation free of formaldehyde, toluene, and parabens but that they also don't test on animals. Other standouts for summer nail trends are Age of Aquarius (teal) and Chelsea Girl (rich blue). Staff fav Poptastic shown below.
