Shop the full ILIA Pure Lip Care collection here!
We're thrilled to announce a new organic and eco-friendly line to the b-glowing family, ILIA Pure Lip Care! Specializing in products specifically designed for our smackeroos, each item is customized to make sure the lips are protected and moisturized at all times. The Ilia range consists of 6 products that each have a targeted mission: to illuminate, condition, exfoliate and give amazing contemporary color!
The ILIA Lipsticks come in six different shades that can be worn alone or layered to create your own signature lip color. The staff favorite is Neon Angel because its a bright fuchsia similar to Nars' Schiap and glides on so smoothly.
One of the most ingenious products in the range is the Lip Exfoliator. Typically I'd use a sugar scrub and manually exfoliate/rinse but this is in stick form making the process a lot less messy. Simply apply it on your lips like you would lipstick and tiny granules of volcanic stone powder gently exfoliates and soften. Follow up with ILIA's Lip Conditioner, an everyday balm filled with Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil that you'll want on your desk, by your bed and in your purse.
Although the range really looks after the lip area it does have some fabulous multi-purpose products like the ILIA Illuminator that can be worn on cupids bow, inner corners of eyes and upper cheekbones to radiate and bring out your best features. ILIA's Multi-Stick is the same thing but with more intensified color. Sweep across any area and you're out the door!
ILIA Pure Lip Color products contain 85% organic ingredients and their chic cases are made of recycled aluminum making it a brand you can trust, naturally.

Soap doesn't usually get a lot of credit these days. After all it's been around since the beginning of time and there isn't usually a lot of glamour that surrounds this user friendly beauty item. Until now. New Zealand skincare line Cor Silver provides hassle free and one step solutions to address the core skincare issues in one application. One of their most popular products is Cor Silver Soap that was just featured in The Zoe report sister newsletter Zoe Beautiful. One of the best benefits in this multi-tasker is the fact that it was conceived to enhance the power of your sunscreen. Crazy right? Crazy, but true as one of the ingredients is sericin, a soluble protein with SPF 15. It also cleanses, evens skin tone and reduces signs of aging which makes it super easy to rub-a-dub-dub in the shower!

The great thing about technology is that it's constantly evolving and giving us products that make our beauty life a heck of a lot easier. No better example can be shown than with our latest arrival, Thairapy 365.
This cutting edge hair tool brand has a niche group of products that are devoted to specializing in caring for your hair while improving it.

However, Thairapy 365 has developed the first inclusive line devoted to eliminating damage and breakage even before it begins. No more do you have to worry about a hair tool destroying your locks.
One of the stand-outs in the range has to be Thairapy 365's World's Fastest Flat Iron. Yes indeedy, the fastest! Just like the world's fastest car, this flat iron goes from 0 to maximum temperature in just 5 seconds.

SPF application has never been a luxurious task, until now. Soleil Organique is a relevant and shall I say trendy (I'm starting the trend by the way) line of naturally based sun care products. From their tan and gold packaging that has been seen on the stylish sands of St Barths, Mystique and Barbados and in the hands of the most beautiful beach dwellers, this 100% marine and mineral based line is the next generation in sun care.
Soleil Organique's mineral sunscreens come in a variety of application types and product varieties. From the 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45, that comes in a convenient non-aerosol pump for easy application to the Environmental Defense Moisturizer For Face SPF 20, which is a an anti-oxidant rich, everyday moisturizer that also helps to prevent premature aging.
One of my personal favorites is the Environmental Defense Hand Cream SPF 15. You have no idea how badly our hands are exposed to the sun just doing regular activities, the worst being driving. If you know you're going to be in the car for a long time, hand on the wheel and fully exposed to the suns ray's, then this really is a key product to carry in your purse or leave in a cool place in your car.

I think it's no argument to state that women tend to have the same types of items in their bag. In fact, a woman's purse is considered prime real estate so when short of space it's a true testament to the 'best of the best' that end up making it in there. Across the board it's typically: wallet, sunglasses, car keys and….lip balm. Speaking of this key item, let me introduce you to the latest brand to the b-glowing family, Figs & Rouge!
With the desire for natural and organic beauty products on the rise, Figs & Rouge has answered the call with their 100% naturally certified range of pure lip balms to moisturize and nourish not only the lips, but for any dry skin emergency.
