The Inside Scoop On Cult Beauty Products

Posted on 09/15/2011

Ever heard of a cult product? No, it's not what you think. I'm not talking about the go-to products that people actually living in a cult would use, but cult in the sense that a select portion of people know about them and swear by them as "the-best," and  "the-only," product they will use. These cult products travel by word of mouth, from friend to a friend and the popularity carries on from there. These products might not even be mass produced or marketed but somewhere, if you're lucky enough, you may be able to get that whisper in the ear for the best moisturizer around...

Thank me later. I'm going to provide you that little whisper in the ear because we actually carry a lot of these "cult" beauty products at b-glowing!

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.

Cult Classic Beauty: Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

Right now, we’re obsessed with the Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist—Lavender & Acacia. Not only is the bottle totally beautiful (and completely worthy of prime real estate on your bedside table), but the scent is also calming. Going into winter, it’s easy to get wrapped up in daily obligations that’ll only feel more demanding with the cold weather and darkening skies (sometimes before you even get off work!). So when you finally get to rest your pretty head on your pillow, you’re craving utter relaxation.

Just a few sprays of this mist on your pillow or sheets will fill the room with a subtle lavender scent. It’s made with purifying essential oils of lavender, mandarin, Ravensera, and Tea Tree, which all help produce serotoin—that wonderful chemical your brain releases that helps you feel sleepy. Both your mind and body will feel relaxed, carrying you into a restorative sleep. Who doesn’t need more beauty sleep anyway?

Unwinding at night is an important step in not only your beauty routine, but in your health and wellness routine, too. Sleep tight, so you wake up ready to conquer your day.

Ready for a great night’s sleep? Shop Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist here.

Editor’s Note: The spray is affordable and luxurious, and most of all, it seriously chills me out on nights that I’m anxious for whatever reason, or having a hard time sleeping due to a busy brain. I don’t know what I ever did without it!

Cult Classic Beauty: ARCONA Raspberry Clarifying Bar

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

For delicious cleansing, we love Arcona’s Raspberry Clarifying Bar. It’s great for acne-prone skin, but it won’t dry you out (thank goodness, as winter is upon us!), and it decongests skin gently.

You’ll soon see a reduction in both inflammation and skin irritation, courtesy of the raspberry antibacterial properties and the wine extracts. Plus, acne scars will be diminished with the powerful combination of vitamin E, aloe, and green tea extract.

We love keeping the bar in the shower as an easy way to remove makeup, too, as it can penetrate deep layers without irritating sensitive areas. Although the bar is not a soap, it leaves skin cleansed and toned, without the use of chemicals.

One very important note: the Clarifying Bar smells incredible, and as much as you might want to, we recommend sticking to cleansing with it, not eating it.

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

To treat hair with better care, we’re loving Gloss Moderne’s High-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner. It makes hair smooth and treats it so gently that it improves, and maintains, your hair’s health. It can be hard to find a shampoos and conditioners that are moisturizing but also paraben, sulfate, and sodium chloride free. But Gloss has it all.

Plus, if you love locks that smell delish all day, Gloss is reminiscent of coconut and caramel, which makes showering more like dessert.

Our editor had this to say: “I recently started using this duo after having a keratin straightening treatment, and it has made my hair feel wonderful. The best thing is it’s obviously Keratin safe, but I don’t notice frizz or ‘crunchiness’ with my hair anymore, which is saying a lot since it’s gone through several chemical treatments. I’ve also heard that this will extend the life of my Keratin treatment.”

Cult Classic Beauty: Tanda Zap

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

For unpredictable skin, we love the Tanda Zap! It's lightweight, inexpensive and serves dual purposes. Not only is it great for acne prevention, but it also works to speed up the healing process of existing blemishes. Talk about a miracle worker!

The specialized blue light is used to target the specific type of bacteria that causes acne, so you end up giving your skin an actual fighting chance and a head start before skin-clogging bacteria can do its damage. Once a blemish has occurred, the light still works against the active bacteria, destroying it and significantly reducing the irritation and inflammation.

Some tips on use:

-Make sure your hands and skin are clean. Never touch your face with dirty hands: the golden rule!

-Make sure the device is clean, as bacteria can build on it between use. Simply wipe it down with warm water and antibacterial soap. Do not submerge device in water.

-For preventive measures, think of your face as four quadrants and spend some time on each area by moving the device around slowly.

-For existing blemishes, place the device close to, but not directly over, the area and treat as necessary. It's very important to clean device between uses.

In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

For your best natural pout, Lipstick Queen’s Hello Sailor is a sheer berry tint, packed full of vitamin E to keep  your lips moisturized and looking healthy. The subtle blue pigment of this lipstick will give your lips a berry hue for the illusion of flushed lips.

The blue hue also works to neutralize yellow tones in teeth so they appear whiter. And who doesn’t want a gorgeous smile? What we like most about this product is that it feels like it was created just for you, as it is a slightly different color on everyone…not to mention flattering! While Hello Sailor looks great on its own, it also makes a wonderfully hydrating base for your favorite lipstick colors.

Cult Classic Beauty: 100 Percent Pure

Posted on 03/27/2014

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 SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

One of the newest brands to b-glowing is 100% Pure. As you may have guessed, all of the brand’s products are made using only all-natural, organic, and vegan ingredients, and everything is toxin-free.

What especially makes this brand unique is how it’s created and how it’s colored. The makeup is all fruit-dyed, bath + body and hair products come in scents reminiscent of the farmers market, and the skincare line uses super foods for a luminous glow.

Some of our favorites include the Argan Oil Hydration SPF 30, which protects against skin cancer, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark sun/age spots by using 100% natural, 100% vegan, and gluten-free ingredients. As spring begins to shine, this product will be an absolute necessity for healthy skin!

For added color this season, we also love the Lip & Cheek Tint that uses pure fruit pigment to add natural looking color while softening and moisturizing. Designed as a cream blush and a lip tint, the formula is highly concentrated with anti-aging ingredients, vitamins, and antioxidants.

After all the fun, we recommended the Super Fruits Night Balm, which uses the most powerfully anti-aging fruits from around the world with the highest ORAC value of antioxidants for aggressive age corrective treatment of your skin. Suggested for mature skin types, you’ll glow with a youthful radiance.
