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 Skincare, Makeup, Fragrance, Hair Care, Bath + 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.”
We’re so excited to add Sarah Potempa to our b-glowing brands, and we love hair made easy even more!
This celebrity hair stylist is the creator of amazing hair tools that make morning routines much more bearable. The cordless, rechargeable Jet-Setter styling iron is perfect for the gal on the go, while the Wrap Up is all about achieving stylish up-dos without the work.
The innovative Beachwaver (2013 Allure’s Best of Beauty Winner) curling iron rotates in both directions, and we recently took advantage of this innovation at a b-glowing photo shoot.
While getting hair photo-ready, our b-glowing stylist loved this curling iron to achieve quick, beautiful hair.
“Having the motor in this curling iron makes it so much more efficient than a standard curling iron. You wouldn’t think much of this at first, but it saves your arms so much strain from having to roll the curling iron on every section of hair.
“I loved using it on the photo shoot because I was doing so many heads of hair that it made things go much faster than if I was using a regular clamp curling iron. I definitely recommend it for home use as well for the girl who likes to speed up her routine any way she can. Lastly, it produced wonderful uniform waves and curls!”
