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.
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.
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 Skincare, Makeup, Fragrance, Hair Care, Bath + Body, and Men's.
In fragrances, we’re currently all a flutter for Etat Libre D’Orange’s “Tilda Swinton Like This.” Named for the Hollywood actress who’s known to make a striking presence on screen (the White Witch, anyone?) “Like This” is just as bold as Ms. Swinton.
At the Fragrance Foundation’s 2011 FIFI’s awards, the scent won the Specialist Prize. It’s especially perfect for fall, since its top notes include tangerine, ginger, immortal flower, and pumpkin.
We especially love it because the scent boasts its own personality, which will only help yours shine through. It’s spicy and strong—perfect for our creative beauties, or anyone wanting to try something a little daring.
