I've been getting some customer service enquiries lately in regards to perfumes that are safe for pregnant women. Although every doctor will tell you differently I've heard that during pregnancy women should shy away from using fragrances that contain chemcials, in particular phthalates. We do carry some more natural based perfumes at b-glowing and thought it would be great to draw attention to some of these because people normally think that natural based scents may not be as nice or last as long. You're wrong.
Zorica of Malibu
Some argue with me, but this fragrance reminds me of the beach. This brand uses organic and natural ingredients in all their bath and body products and are scented with 100% pure essential oils so this is a great option for anybody who also experiences fragrance sensitivity. The Zorica of Malibu Gratitude Perfume Oil smells of grapefruit & vanilla and is a sensual feminine scent. It's also totally chemical and alcohol free so feel free to safely apply anywhere. If you loved 88 Orange then we at the office think this is a nice counterpart.
All products in the Kai range are phthalate, sulfate and paraben free. This particular scent brings with it the aromas and images of a tropical paradise: jasmine, gardenia, lily and tuberose work together to create the essence of Hawaii to your pulsepoints. Choose from Kai's Eau de Parfum or Perfume Oil and say aloha!
Choose from an assortment of perfumes that are made with certified organic and responsible ingredients. The perfumes are completely botanical and containg no harsh preservatives, sulfates or synthetic fragrances. Persephenie's Datura perfume has tender notes of Egyptian jasmine and lily that's cradled in caramel and musk.
If you struggle with the effects of eyelid creasing even after using primers, potions and concealers then this might be your lucky day. I'd come to deal with the fact that no matter if I used cream based or powder eyeshadows, in t-minus two hours I was going to have the tell-tale signs of that product embedded into my eyelids. It wasn't until a month ago that a fab-fab-fabulous new cosmetics range joined the b-glowing family that I realized there was hope.
And that product line my friends is Ellis Faas.
The entire product range is to die for but one of the stand outs for me was their eye shadow products. It must be all in the formulation, in particular Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes. It's has a miracle consistency and transforms from a wet to matte powder upon application. The brush shape and thickness makes it easy to apply and direct exactly where you want it to go. The only other step is blending the color out if you desire for more of a smoky look. Truthfully, I can wear this product for 8 hours and when I get home and look in the mirror it looks exactly like I just put it on! It says put and the results look fresh even through heat, rain and other environmental elements known to be makeup's worst enemy.
One of my personal favorites is the Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes E107 because of it's wearble mushroom/taupe shade which keeps it's cool, wearable factor from summer to winter. This shade was also recently featured in Gwyneth Patlrow's Goop E-newsletter where her makeup artist fell in love with it during a day to evening makeover. Another favorite around the office is Creamy Eyes E104 as we find it the perfect sexy, smoky eye color.
For those of you who haven't heard of this brand, Juliette Has a Gun is an independednt perfume brand out of France that brings rock 'n roll and the art of seduction into a series of cult crazy fragrances. What makes this brand so special is that it can be quite hard to find as it's only sold is specialty concept stores and specialized perfumeries. So, we are very pleased to have this line of intoxicating scents available to US customers. All of them are based on the rose. Fragile but thorny, the rose can be equally beautiful and equally dangerous.
What really draws people's attention is definitely the brand name...the whole "gun" thing. No, she's not out to put a bullet into you but she is out to seduce and draw you in which the gun is the perfect metaphor for a perfume as THE weapon of seduction. One of the most popular scents is Juliette Has A Gun's Lady Vengeance which carries with it the nuance of undeniable femininity, confidence and divine sensuality. The very elegant but thorny Bulgarian rose marries patchouli and vanilla to draw this fine elegance, both contemporary and inevitable. Another is Vengeance Extreme, a chypre fragrance which draws its intensity from an unusual dosage of Patchouli, Bulgarian Rose, and Vanilla. A trail suggesting an evident sensuality, with a zest of provocation. Not to be left in innocent hands...
