Introducing Le Couvent des Minimes - the latest addition to the b-glowing.com family. Our staff is already addicted to this luxurious brand.
Inspired by the long tradition of plant-based care and well-being used at the convent of Mane in the south of France, the product recipes use no unnecessary ingredients to maintain the effective simplicity Le Couvent des Minimes is known for.
You are going to LOVE the elegant design of the packaging. Each container features a decorative engraving, paying homage to the ancestral traditions of the convents and monasteries. We love this historical touch that celebrates the brand's muse.
Our Le Couvent des Minimes staff picks include the affordable and fragrant Soap Bar Eau des Missions - a steal at only $7! We are also loving the Gardener's Hand Healer, which nourishes and repairs dry, damaged hands.
At b-glowing.com, we pride ourselves on introducing beauty junkies to new, innovative brands they may not have ever heard of. But how do you know what products to try within a new brand you've just discovered? In our new Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in Skincare, Makeup, Fragrance, Hair Care, Bath + Body, and Men's.
Here are just a handful of our favorites:
Le Couvent Des Minimes Face Polishing Cream: This gentle and creamy exfoliator leaves skin noticeably smoother and soft, without drying out the skin or causing irritation. The infusion of damask rose, musk rose, and wild rose ingredients stimulate cell renewal, and protect your skin against free radicals - leaving you with a healthy glow you'll love!
RMS Beauty "un" powder: This translucent setting powder is the perfect final touch to any beauty routine. Formulated with the purest silica, this makeup essential works to soften the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, as well as minimize shine and keep your makeup look perfect throughout the day!
Honoré des Prés Love Coconut (We Love NY Collection): Fresh coconut milk mixes with gently-spiced coriander, vanilla, and tonka bean to give you a sweet, but not too sweet fragrance that is easy to wear, and 100% natural and organic. We love that this perfume is packaged in a coffee to-go cup as part of the 'We Love NY Collection'. So fun and so New York!
Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer: "I love volume because it gives a thickness and richness to hair, " Serge Normant tells ELLE magazine in this month's issue. It's no wonder why we love this product so much to give our locks a healthy boost. Great for every hair type, this product gives you height, without weighing down your hair.
Earth Tu Face Salt Scrub: Made with 100% plant-based, food grade ingredients, this pure sea salt scrub stimulates circulation, and even combats cellulite! We love the smell of the organic bergamot, lemon, and basil oils that are known to invigorate the immune system and uplift your mood. In addition to exfoliating and detoxifying your body, this scrub is a great hydrator, leaving your skin soft and smooth after the bath or shower. You don't even need a moisturizer after!
Clark's Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash: This staff and customer favorite combines powerful skin-clearing salicylic acid with hydrating ingredients to clear his skin without drying it out. Perfect for all skin types, this cleanser is especially effective on acneic skin types. Great for guys and gals!Read More »
We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following.

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.
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!Read More »

If you’re like us, your perfume selections can change as often as your lipstick shades. These four scents each offer up a unique twist on citrus fragrances, and are from four really awesome brands, too.Read More »
