Shop BKR® water bottles here!
We're thrilled to announce the first addition to a future lifestyle category on b-glowing! Although it may not be the most exciting thing to drink, water is one of the best things you can do for your skin and overall health in general. Since H20 doesn't have the same flavor as our favorite juices or other imbibements we thought at least we can make the container we drink it out of a fashion statement making experience. That is where BKR® comes in!
Created by good friends Tal and Kate, BKR® is a line of colorful glass water bottles with a soft silicone sleeve that doesn't alter the taste of its contents or allow any unsafe chemicals to leach and make you sick. Water tastes best out of glass bottles and studies have found that BPA, a chemical found in plastic water bottles, has been linked to increased risk of cancer, diabetes and more. These make for the perfect stocking stuffer. In fact, I'm gifting myself with Bubble (petal pink) and my husband with Kitsch (neon orange)!
