Beauty Madness in NYC!

Posted on 09/14/2011

 

I just got back from a whirlwind  48 hour trip to New York City. I'm embarrassed to say that I'm a NYC virgin. I don't know what took me so long to get there but am grateful that I finally got the chance to go and from what I experienced, cannot wait to get back there again. 

 

In actuality, I'm kind of glad it took me 31 years. As a tomboyish teenager, there was no big draw card as I didn't have an interest in fashion, architecture, or food. To me, vacation meant sandy beach or at least a water park.

Natural Skin Care: How Essential Oils and Extracts Benefit Your Skin

Posted on 02/28/2012

RODIN Olio LussoIt may seem counterintuitive to apply oil as part of your skin care regimen. Many of us already have greasy complexions, so adding more oil seems counterproductive. And most women dislike oily textures on their skin. However, applying the right kinds of oils – i.e., essential oils – can make anyone’s skin more radiant. Certain plant extracts are known for their ability to encourage healthy skin. By selecting beauty products that are based on select botanical extracts and essential oils, you can achieve whatever goals you may have for your skin.

This is a beauty secret many celebrities already understand. For instance, Julianne Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow are loyal customers of fashion stylist Linda Rodin, who experimented with a plethora of essential oils to create a luxurious facial product based on eleven different skin-smoothing extracts. RODIN Olio Lusso is the result of her experimentation. It includes antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oils such as argan and calendula, along with fragrant essential oils such as jasmine, to create a sumptuous experience. Just a few drops of RODIN Olio Lusso applied morning and night to your freshly washed face and neck will smooth out and rejuvenate any type of skin.

Here are some of the other ways botanical oils can improve the skin:

Deep Healing

Many plants have healing qualities to encourage healthy skin. For instance, Skyn ICELAND offers Pure Cloud Cream to repair skin ravaged by wintery conditions. This light cream contains oat and aloe extracts to eliminate irritation and inflammation. Other Skyn ICELAND products contain willow bark extract, which is known for its anti-inflammatory, astringent and conditioning properties.

To understand the power behind RODIN Olio Lusso and other essential oil-based products, consider that oils easily penetrate to the dermal layer of skin, where new cells are created. This means essential oils can quickly heal damaged skin.

Body Oil: The One Simplistic Skin Regimen to Keep

Posted on 03/20/2012

RODIN olio lusso Body OilAlthough applying body oil was known by ancient Romans and Hindis to be an excellent skin care regimen, many modern American women would probably cringe at the idea of adding oil to their skin. After all, each of us has seen dozens of commercials despairing oily, greasy skin. For years, advertisers have tried to convince us that our beauty routines should remove as much oil as possible from the skin, urging us to instead use lotions as moisturizers. However, many dermatologists and beauty experts now believe this approach is somewhat misguided, given the importance of oil in skin health.

What Oil does for Your Skin

Oil is so important for profiting and waterproofing the skin that the body produces its own oil. This oil is secreted by sebaceous glands that cover every inch of the body save the palms and the soles. Some individuals’ oil-producing glands are overactive, so they have oily skin. Others suffer perpetually dry skin because their sebaceous glands are under-active. In both cases, applying an oil such as Rodin olio lusso as a moisturizer actually normalizes the body’s natural production of sebum oil.

Ironically, many contemporary skin care products actually cause irritated, oily skin. By removing the body’s natural oil, they trigger the sebaceous glands to overproduce. These glands go berserk when they detect a complete lack of oil in the skin. Not understanding this, many women simply apply more drying skin products – alarming the sebaceous glands again. And the whole vicious cycle starts over.

In contrast, applying oil is a way to reclaim balance using the body’s own natural techniques. Applying a pure product such as Rodin body oil can help anyone achieve more naturally radiant skin.

Benefits of Essential Oils

Furthermore, oil-based products can deliver potent essential oils that foster luminous skin. Rodin body oil uses an apricot kernel and sweet almond oil base to deliver essential oils including calendula and arnica. Apricot kernel oil is known to penetrate quickly, leaving skin feeling dry and not at all greasy. It is excellent for the skin because it contains a large amount of vitamin E, which helps skin retain its elasticity. Apricot oil also contains vitamin A, which is excellent for mature, sensitive or aging skin. Sweet almond oil is another emollient in Rodin olio lusso; it softens and moisturizes the skin. Both calendula and arnica are known for their soothing, healing qualities.

Preparing Your Skin and Hair for Spring Vacations

Posted on 03/26/2012

St. Tropez Spring BreakIf you’re going on a vacation this spring, be sure to pamper yourself before you leave. Winter conditions can ravage your skin and hair. Avoid feeling less fabulous than you actually are – prepare for your spring break by following these tips.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Your skin is probably already parched due to winter dryness. Combine this with the damaging effects of air travel, and you could end up looking positively reptilian just when you should be feeling absolutely gorgeous. It’s not unusual for humidity levels in pressurized airplane cabins to hover around 25 percent. Only desert dwellers are used to that kind of arid environment. Therefore, be sure to drink plenty of water during and before the flight to keep your skin looking plump and healthy.

Additionally, it’s smart to treat yourself to a pre-vacation skin spa. Exfoliating and deeply moisturizing your skin before you leave will help offset the desiccation of air travel and winter dryness. For a natural exfoliation experience, try mixing sweet almond oil with sugar or coffee grinds. Once the dead skin cells of winter have been sloughed away, apply a rich moisturizer.

Embracing 'The Grey' With Silver Fox Linda Rodin!

Posted on 03/28/2012

What is it about a gray strand of hair that causes total freak out and an emergency trip to the hair dressers? I remember noticing my first gray hair in my early twenties and thinking I had failed at fighting the aging process. Instead of just embracing it as inevitable part of life and going with the flow I was even more adamant about making sure those suckers were going to be hidden FOREVER.

As I've gotten older, ok I'm 32, I've come to appreciate silvery, grey hair as beautiful. It's really is striking, especially now that we have so many icons who are saying no to bleach and heck yes to being a silver fox such as Adele Chatfield-Taylor, Christine Lagarde and our favorite, Linda Rodin! In the March edition of Town & Country magazine the Rodin Olio Lusso creator says she always embraced her gray hair and never thought of coloring it, even when people said, "If only you died your hair you'd have thousands of men knocking down your door," and "I've always loved my hair and wouldn't change it for anything."

Defy Your Age with Anti-Aging Skincare

Posted on 06/18/2012

Shop the entire RODIN olio lusso collection here.

RODIN olio lusso Luxury Face OilNot only is the skin your body’s largest organ – it is an external organ that can demonstrate your age. The effects of aging will always take a toll on your skin, but your habits can dictate the speed of its deterioration. By taking good care of your skin with healthy habits and products like RODIN olio lusso, you can prolong the aging process.

Changes in Your Skin as You Age

Dryness. As you age, your skin gets drier because your body slowly loses the ability to naturally create moisturizing oils.

Thinning. As the skin loses the fatty layer below the epidermis, it becomes thinner. The slower regeneration of skin cells as you age can also cause thinning. Sun exposure speeds up the thinning process and breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin.

Sagging. Gravity paired with altered hormone levels and decreased levels of skin fat, elastin and collagen will make your skin sag. Taking care your skin now with healthy habits and a comprehensive skin care routine can help delay sagging.

Age spots. Simply put, age spots (or liver spots) are sun spots. Your body creates them in response to sun exposure to protect the deeper layers of your skin. Prevent their appearance by always wearing a moisturizer with an SPF component and by staying out of the sun.

Wrinkles. In your 30s and 40s, you start to develop wrinkles because of a lifetime of muscle and skin movements. In your 50s, your wrinkles can become more prominent as your skin starts to sag. Smoking and sun exposure speed up the development of wrinkles.

Summer Favorites From Beauty By Benz!

Posted on 07/05/2012

There's nothing like a little blogger love on a Thursday morning, especially when said blogger talks about some of your favorite beauty items. Seems like Beauty By Benz and I  have similar beauty taste with picks from Rodin olio lusso, Jouer Cosmetics and more! Not only does she talk about her love of b-glowing for our eclectic mix of department store favorites, niche products that professional makeup artists go ga-ga for and brands that have built a cult status following over the years but also that our site is just plain cool! Here are the products that made her summer favorites list:

Rodin olio lusso Luxury Face Oil is a makeup artist must have to prep and hydrate the skin to make that perfect canvas for makeup application. Victoria's Secret angels get their amazing runway face glow from Rodin not from the heavens. She talks about how it really absorbs onto the skin rather than resting on top and feeling like an oil spill and the beautiful Jasmine scent makes it ever more luxurious.

 

Top off that glow with a bit more courtesy of Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. It's light to medium coverage goes on without feeling heavy and it's dewy formula leaves skin looking fresh and illuminated all day. Add on a bit of pink creamy blush, mascara and gloss and you've created the perfect no fuss summer look.

 

If you haven't been working on your 'power brow' the time is now. Brows are bigger than ever, both in size and trend so start growing out and enhancing your beautiful arches. She fell in love with the Jouer Brow Fix, a clear taming gel with brush applicator that can be used after filling in your brows with powder or pencil to keep them in place all day long.

 

Jemma Kidd Contour & Flush Creme Blush Duo is really the perfect summer makeup product because it comes with two different shades. A darker bronze to be used for contouring or bronzing and then a cream blush that gives that perfect soft dewy hint of color. Creamy blushes are really ideal for summer because they don't look streaky or uneven as a powder blush can occasionally appear if a liquid base is beneath it. Sometimes the color sticks to different areas which can be a little frustrating when you're in a hurry but not the case with creamy based ones!

Linda Rodin Shares The Inspiration Behind Her New Fragrance!

Shop the full Rodin olio lusso collection here!

Stylist, tastemaker and creator of chic brand Rodin olio lusso, Linda Rodin spends some time with b-glowing to share her insight into the creation of her latest brand addition, the Rodin Perfume. If you've already fallen in love with the signature fragrance of the brand then you will love the new perfume, if not and are wanting a bit of a sample tease then check our our 2012 Summer Fragrance Flight which features this amazing scent. A curated selection of six samples for $15 that compliment the summer season and comes with an 20% exclusive discount code* in case you find your signature!

1. With a coveted line of chic products that stand alone are simply elegant in every way, what made you want to create a perfume? 

Well, I adore the scent of my oils. And it seems everyone else does too. So I made a perfume to mirror the scent of the oils, so it would be a lasting fragrance. 

2. As your line is known for it's exquisite hair, face and body oils, when I heard you were doing a perfume I figured it would be a rollerball perfume oil. What went into the decision to create an eau de parfum?

I am old fashioned I guess. I am not a big fan of rollerball perfumes. I wanted exactly what we made.

3. Upon smelling this lovely fragrance one would know that it's unmistakably Rodin, however with a twist. Can you let our readers know what the inspiration was behind the fragrance and the notes used?

It was quite simple. I just wanted something to mirror the delicious fragrance of the jasmine and neroli of my oils. 

4. There seems to be a big customer demand for more, more, more Rodin products. Can we expect anymore fabulous additions in the future?

Yes. We are making a scented candle for holiday, and a wonderful facial cleanser for early 2013.

Scents & Sensibility For Summer With Yosh!

Posted on 07/10/2012

Shop the full Yosh perfume collection here!

Perfumer Yosh joins us again for another round of Scents & Sensibility! Spring has passed and now summer is truly in bloom. The earthy aromas of the season are in full swing like jasmine that seems it's most intoxicating at sunset, freshly mowed green grass, sweet honeysuckle and a day at the beach (cotton candy, coconut cocktails, sunscreen) and all! Yosh answers a few of our seasonal questions and recommends some great summer scents for our 2012 Summer Fragrance Flight, a sampler set of 5 fragrances for $15 that will leave you smelling great as the temperature rises. It also includes a special 20% discount code** that can be used just in case you find your new signature!

 What differentiates summer style perfumes from the other seasons?

Our body chemistry (as well as the Earth's) changes during the summer. It's warmer out so we change our activities accordingly. When it's hot and humid, light and fresh fragrances tend to be more suitable for the season. Fruity florals or citrus aromatics are refreshing and carefree.

 

How do we choose the perfect summer fragrance?

This depends on your activity but for the office, something watery and subtle would be appropriate but weekends and going out at night, something sparkly and juicy would be more fun. 

 

I've heard that eau de toilette can be a better choice than an eau de parfum because they're lighter based. However, the lighter they are I find the more times I have to apply. What's the solution?

 

There's a misconception that fragrances should last all day but I prefer to carry a purse spray to spritz throughout the day. It's like asking the sunlight to stay the same from morning through the day. Nobody is that robotic. Clothing gets wrinkled and worn as you sit and walk around. Refresh your fragrance when you powder your nose and add fresh coat of lipstick. 

 

Eau de toilette EDT and eau de parfum EDP refer to the strength of perfume concentrate and alcohol. There's more alcohol and less concentrate in EDT so the dilution gives the wearer a lighter impression. I think this is a great solution if a person tends towards the heavier florientals or gourmands normally. Then you can still enjoy this genre of fragrance in the summer rather than trying to wear a different style of perfume. But if you like cologne style aromatics or citrus fragrances, then EDP is fine even in the summer. If you like floral musks or powdery fragrances, then choose the less intense EDT otherwise, it can be cloying in humid weather. If it's a dry climate with coastal breeze (west coast) then EDP is fine.

 

What are some of our summer inspired fragrances that have caught your eye this season?

In my own collection, I was surprised to find that I fell in love with U4EAHH. Even though it's a global best seller, it was one of my creations that I never wore because it is usually turns sour on me. But I've been in Tokyo for the last few weeks and the climate here is quite humid and the fragrance smells amazing on me. The new Rodin olio lusso Perfume also sounds amazing to me with neroli and jasmine.

 

*Yosh began her perfuming career in 1994 as an apprentice, learning to identify and combine the  healing essential oils and sensuous perfume essences in each of those bottles. Today Yosh uses these elixirs in her own modern practice of the ancient art of perfumery, creating signature scents that entice the senses, fascinate the mind and enchant the soul.**Coupon code not valid on Rodin olio lusso products.

Posted on 09/11/2012

Every year we look forward to Allure magazine's 'Best of Beauty' awards and this year we're pleased to announce so many b-glowing products made the cut! To be amongst the 249 winners is no easy feat with only the best of the best being chosen. Think of these products below as the must haves, the gold trophies and VIP's of their category. With no further adieu here are your favorites:

Starting off the list we have Klorane's Soothing Makeup Remover Lotion. Included in the best of sensitive skin category, this gentle makeup remover can be used over the entire face to remove all traces of make-up hygienically, soothes irritated skin and decongests in just a few swipes.

 

Curls are key and if you don't have the right tools that bounce just isn't going to look as good. The 'Best Curling Iron' also happens to be a staff favorite, T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand! With a tapered and clipless barrel, it creates loose and undone waves in seconds. Tourmaline technology and infrared energy seals the cuticle for frizz free finish and amazing shine. 

 

It's no surprise to us that Rodin Olio Lusso's Luxury Face Oil was featured as one of the 'Top Splurges' well worth the investment. A favorite amongst the New York City fashionistas, Tinseltown celebrities and Victoria's Secret Angels, people are going crazy for this face oil packed with eleven essential oils that sink into the skin and instantly hydrate and luminate the complexion. 

 

If you don't have volume what do you have? For some of us, this doesn't come naturally so also considered an essential splurge in Allure's Best of Beauty awards is the Sachajuan Volume Powder. This powder based spray goes on dry, gives a matte finish and beautiful volume and structure instantly. Remember to shake out any excess! We were excited to see the upcoming Clarisonic Aria in the mix as well! We're counting the days until we have this breakthrough product on our shelves!

 

Eighteen of our products were featured in Allure's Best of Beauty and we're so thrilled! RMS Beauty's Un-Cover Up was a 'Natural Wonder' pick and of course they can't leave out the boys with Art of Shaving's Pre Shave Oil. So many to list we're going to need to do another blog!

Supermodel Erin Wasson's Beauty Secrets - Rodin olio lusso

Posted on 10/16/2012

Gorgeous model Erin Wasson who embodies the boho-chic, 'natural' hippie lifestyle was recently featured in a candid interview on intothegloss.com sharing her views on fashion as well as low key approach to beauty. A 'no sparkle' girl, Erin is very low maintenance with makeup. In fact, the only thing she'll wear is RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up natural foundation because its virtually undetectable and melts into the skin. Wear it as a concealer or foundation to cover T-zones and redness. As you can see in the vanity pictures she is also a big fan of Rodin olio lusso products and seems to have gotten the memo from the rest of the fashion industry where the Rodin word is spreading like hotcakes. She's a big fan of the Rodin Crema and Olio Lusso Body Oil.

Posted on 02/20/2013

Shop Rodin olio lusso here!

My Oscar vote is going to Jessica Chastain for her amazing performance in Zero Dark Thirty and because she and I are kindred spirits in our taste for beauty products so I'm kind of biased. Her beauty taste was recently featured in the March 2013 edition of In Style with one of her must-haves being Rodin Olio Lusso Body Oil! Loved by Victoria's Secret angels and b-glowing staffers alike, skin conditioning is brought to a whole new level with this luxury oil made with a special blend of essential oils that leaves a beautiful dewy finish to newly moisturized skin.

Take The Green Route!

Posted on 04/08/2013

Whether it's vegan, natural or organic, it seems like many beauty editors and celebrities are breaking away from products that contain chemicals. The 'new normal' in skincare tends to veer more towards the natural end of the spectrum these days if the Town & Country beauty section is anything to go by. Two of our products just graced these pages for 'effectively harnessing what Mother Nature has to offer."

One particular product that is used to the limelight is Rodin Olio Lusso's Luxury Face Oil. A favorite of makeup artists, fashion insiders and Victoria's Secret Angels, this beautiful blend of essential oils melts into the skin, drenching it in hydration and leaving a subtle glow all day long. Holistic skincare brand Tammy Fender's Spontaneous Recovery Creme transforms the skin in a single application, easily earning it's well founded praise as 'the most powerful product ever put on the skin."

April is 'green month' so take this cue and explore the green route!

Staff Holiday 2012 Gift Picks - Lisa

Posted on 12/07/2012

She's a lover of travel, great wine, furry companions and just so happens to know a thing or two about beauty. Today I'm pleased to showcase our fearless leader and b-glowing founder Lisa's holiday picks! Lisa started b-glowing with the first and foremost love of the beauty industry and a select few brands and years later has seen the company grow and grow to feature items that have become trusted favorites and luxury staples. She has an uncanny knack for finding the next big thing so needless to say her holiday picks have been tried and tested by her for approval…

Clarisonic Aria - Candy Apple Red "Clarisonic is simply a game changer in skincare! It has transformed my skin and my skincare routine forever. Ever since I started using Clarisonic my skin is smoother, clearer, the tone is more even, less redness and smaller pores. I couldn't ask for more."

Kai Travel Set "Perfect for my holiday travels. I love the scent of Kai and it's always so fresh and pretty- any time of year."

Ellis Faas Eye Lights "Seriously? You can't go to an holiday party this year without wearing a little Ellis Faas Eye Light. That is what this product was designed for! It is an instant dose of shimmer and glamour with easy application. These colors are simply gorgeous and I've never experienced colors and formulations like these before."

Rodin Olio Lusso Perfume "A grown up floral that works for day and night. It's refreshing, elegant and oh-so-chic making it an instant classic!"

Bkr bottle - "My absolute new fav, so much so that I keep one at the office and one at home because water just seems to taste better in it. The glass bottle is covered with a super fashionable silicone sleeve (you choose from an assortment of great shades) and I love that I'm not adding plastic bottles into landfills. The best part is the health benefit - I no longer have to worry about chemicals in plastic bottles leaching into my drinking water."

Hot Off the Press: Sara Happ, St. Tropez, Rodin, Prtty Peaushun, Kevyn Aucoin

Posted on 06/24/2013

Shop b-glowing.com here.

b-glowing.com brands got a lot of love last week. We get so excited when we stumble upon our favorite products in the press and pages of our beloved beauty mags. Find out what has been making headlines here!

The Zoe Report featured three b-glowing summer season staples last week:

Sara Happ: The new, limited edition Lip Scrub flavors, Lemonade and Lavender, are perfect for soothing sun-chapped lips. Add this product to your nightly beauty routine to prevent a parched pucker.

St. Tropez: TZR's pick for tried and true sunless tanning, St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse and Bronzing Spray will give you a natural, streak-free glow without the harsh and dangerous UV rays.

Rodin: Reveal hydrated, radiant skin with Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil. Formulated for all skin types, this essential oil-infused liquid moisturizer leaves your face looking luminous, but not greasy.

People magazine included Julianne Hough in their 'Summer Beauty Watch' segment earlier this month:

Prtty Peaushun: Hough's go-to faux glow for sunny weather is Prtty Peaushun in Medium. This illuminating tinted lotion uses light-reflecting technology to hide minor imperfections and give definition to your body.

InStyle magazine gave their recommendations on how to achieve this season's 'bare' look in Shift into Neutral:

Kevyn Aucoin: The Sensual Skin Enhancer is a multipurpose primer, foundation, and concealer all-in-one. Used first as an allover base, then again to cover dark circles, blemishes and age spots, this redness-reducing must-have perfects skin without looking cakey.

MAKE BEAUTY. ICONIC: Linda Rodin

Posted on 10/25/2013

Our BEAUTY ICON, Rodin Olio Lusso’s Linda Rodin is a natural—both at what she does and how she does it. She craves simple skincare with natural ingredients that fight impurities while recovering genuine beauty.

Coming from a style background, we were eager to learn about how the two worlds collide and how they can work together, especially when it comes to b-glowing brands Linda loves!

Describe the perfect Saturday in NYC. 
Waking up late, having a cappuccino and going with Winky to the flea market. And having nothing else to do the rest of the day. 

As someone who's worked both actively in fashion and now beauty, how important is it that these two styles complement each other?
Well, I think I was very lucky to have been first in the fashion business. It enabled me to have access to the best models, makeup and hair stylists in the world, so I could let them try my products. That's how the buzz happened. Word of mouth 

What is the best beauty advice you've ever received? 
Always keep your skin clean and fresh

If you were stuck with one piece of makeup what would it be?
Lipstick, for sure

From one woman to the next, whom do you admire? 
I admire women who juggle careers with their families, women who make a difference in the world by helping other people, and women who allow themselves to not be too affected by how they "should" look or feel. It's all right to be yourself. 

Linda’s b-glowing Product Picks:

Art of Shaving, Ocean Kelp—for the men in my life
butter London—love the colours!
BY TERRY—so creamy, especially the new moisturizing #301 lipstick
Japonesque, Manicure Set and Artisan Tweezer-Slant. I love japonesque sets of all kinds
Paul & Joe, eye colors CS. I adore Paul & Joe packaging 
Peter Thomas Roth, Ultra-Lite, Oil-Free Sunblock. Keeps my skin protected but not greasy
RGB—hip and gorgeous
Deborah Lippman—wonderful colors. 
Mason Pearson, Pocket Boar Bristle Brush.
