If a celebrity is endorsing a product or is seen with a certain moisturizer, lip gloss or bottle of water I automatically take notice and want to try it. Our latest arrival, Glam Glow Mud Mask, is the talk of tinsel town with beauty editors, makeup artists and celebrities making it one of their must have items. Ryan Seacrest was seen using it backstage on American Idol as well as Karina Smirnoff from Dancing With The Stars....and she won! Must have been that beautiful glowing skin I say...
This mircale mask's main ingredient, "mud" is dredged off the coast of Southern France, and is high in ancient volcanic pumice rock, super antioxidants and minerals. This product gently exfoliates the face and activates moisturizing collagen synthesis. It will absorb skin impurities without stripping your skin of it's natural oils and you will be left with a noticeably radiant and glowing complexion. It's no wonder makeup artists love their celeb clients to use Glam Glow Mud Mask prior to red carpet appearences and photo shoots. Get skin fit for a celebrity for only $69 and your skin will never look so luminous!Read More »
To radiate from within. To seem as if they're walking on water. To look glamorous whilst still capturing the natural beauty they were born with. The Golden Globe actresses last night simply took my breath away with many bringing back one of my favorite trends: ethereal beauty. Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara (ok, maybe she was channeling he dark side of ethereal), Heidi Klum, Elle Macphereson, Emma Stone rocked my fashion core. Channel and recreate the major beauty trends of the Golden Globe awards by following these steps:
First off ladies, it's all about the preparation. Unless you're divinely blessed which let's face it only a select few of us are then we have to work, work, work for perfection and that all comes down to taking care of our skin. I know it's not always a sexy topic, but at the end of the day prepping your skin with a mask or serum can really make your makeup ever better! If you don't trust me, then trust Hollywood because most of them swear by GLAMGLOW. Created in Hollywood, for Hollywood, and little people like you and me of course, the GLAMGLOW Mud Mask! Quickly becoming a b-glowing staff favorite, this miracle mask gently exfoliates your face with green tea leaves and miracle mud dredged from the exotic South of France will leave your skin glowing from the inside out.
Let's talk about the mane. Up-do's, french chignon, 60's beehive, or Elvira Adams straight, there was plenty to talk about in the hair style department. However, I'm a sucker for soft waves a la Elle Macpherson who look absolutely stunning last night in a gorgeous gown and her signature beach tousled hair. The woman doesn't look a day over 35! To recreate her soft romantic curls it's all in the tools baby and my favorite is T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand. It has a tapered barrel to allow for a loose and distressed curl that doesn't look so darn perfect which is exactly what we want! With all of T3 hair styling tools, the heat chosen remains the same throughout the entire styling process which also cuts your hair prep time in half!

Ok I know Valentine's is kind of a cheesy holiday to celebrate but I love getting presents so I always have the, "But it's Valentine's" line on the backburner for my hubby. This chocolates and flowers holiday will be here in just a few weeks so I thought I'd give some great ideas for my fellow beauty junkie sisters who are a little bit underwhelmed by the classic gifts. Here are some must have beauty items that will make a perfect Valentine's....
The latest addition to the Clarisonic family comes in pink or white and has been updated from the classic Mia by having two different speeds as well as a 60 second T-Timer to ensure you're cleasing for the required 60 seconds. This is a great one to give the male loved one in your life as well. Watch your skin change over the course of a few weeks due to it's powerful sonic cleansing that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Paul & Joe's Kitty Blusher Stick
I'm not even a cat lover but I can't help but get a little excited over Paul & Joe's Spring 2012 Meow Collection. The Kitty Blusher stick comes in three different shades and comes in lipstick style packaging and application. Turn the capsule and watch as a cat in the hat pops up to say hello! My personal fave is Minou because it's a gorgeous soft pink that I can wear everyday with any look.

InStyle’s fall Beauty issue featured the season’s skin must-haves, and b-glowing.com brands were among the staples. Grouped by age, our products were picked for those in their 20s, 40s and 60s, which shows how easy it is to MAKE BEAUTY™ at any age!
GLAMGLOW® was among the “Top Priority” picks for its SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment, with results that InStyle dubbed as instantly gratifying. The specialized formula fights breakouts, discoloration and even razor bumps and in-grown hairs. This clay mask is an overachiever, since it also improves skin’s texture, stimulates collagen production and battles multiple signs of aging.
For the flirty 30s, Clarisonic took top honors for a daily morning treatment (no surprise here), as the innovative tool evens skin’s texture and tone and leaves behind a touchable softness. The Clarisonic is also a b-glowing staff favorite because of its ability to make skin, you guessed it, glow!
Dr. Brandt’s microdermabrasion skin exfoliant was also named a necessity, but not just for the face. It can work its magic on arms, hands and the neck, brightening the tone like you’d expect during an in-office microdermabrasion session. Say goodbye to dead skin cells, and embrace your youth. In Style said, “Watch your skin take on a warm, backlit glow.”
The magazine named Luxe an essential for twice-a-week treatment for its ability to boost collagen production and fight signs of aging, especially for those in their 60s. Using breakthrough technology, Luxe immediately hydrates skin and reverses major signs of aging. It’s all about looking as young as you still feel (and maybe turning a head or two).Read More »
