Product Highlight: Luxe Setting Powder



You already know and love Luxe Liquid Foundation SPF 15 for its light-diffusing diamond powder technology and soft-focus finish- now get ready to fall in love with the all-new Luxe Setting Powder. This luxurious loose powder was designed specifically to set and provide extended wear for Luxe Liquid Foundation while blurring fine lines for a luminous effect on your skin. In addition to providing weightless coverage it leaves a sheer, silky smooth finish to leave skin looking flawless all day.

This flash photography friendly formula contains an exclusive blend of antioxidants, including Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract and is suitable for all skin types. For best results, first apply Luxe Liquid Foundation and then dust on this translucent powder using the all new Luxe Setting Powder Brush. Here are some additional expert tricks and techniques to try:

  • For added luminosity around the orbital bone/upper cheekbone area and to set Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer, use the powder puff (included) to lightly press powder into the skin. Start below the eye and move from inner eye area out and upward to temple.
  • Prior to a dramatic eye application, apply a generous amount of Luxe Setting Powder under the eye area to easily remove fallout. Once dramatic eye look is complete, use the Luxe Setting Powder Brush to sweep away any excess product left under the eye in a light, outward motion.

The Law of Attraction: Essential Cleansing Oil

14Aug-EssentialOil-Spotlight-blog.jpg


To deliver a pure, beautiful cleanse, we’ve developed an innovative, water-soluble oil blend that relies on the law of attraction. When our Essential Cleansing Oil meets oil-carried impurities, like attracts like, and makeup, dirt and debris are lifted from follicles. Water, introduced after Essential Cleansing Oil is applied with dry hands to dry skin, dissolves these uniquely formulated cleansing oils, lifting away impurities and revealing your purest, cleanest skin.

This beautiful pre-cleanse is ideal for all skin types, including oily skin because it helps balance skin while keeping congestion and breakouts at bay. For dry skin, Essential Cleansing Oil lifts away impurities while conditioning and softening the skin and for those of you with combination skin (somewhere in between oily and dry) this formula helps remove makeup, oil and debris for a clean, fresh face.

For best results, follow these steps:

Step 1) Add a small amount of Essential Cleansing Oil to dry hands and apply to dry skin using gentle, circular movements.

Step 2) Introduce water to your hands and lightly spread over face. You should see the oil turn from clear to a milky white emulsion.

Step 3) Rinse clean and follow with another glo therapeutics cleanser if desired.

Cytoluxe-Hydration-Spotlight.jpg


With the launch of the all-new Cyto-luxe Hydration+ we are not only adding a luxurious formulation to the Cyto-luxe Collection but we are introducing an exciting ingredient as well: Dermatein HyA Mini. Dermatein HyA Mini is a new and innovative Hyaluronic Acid source with a smaller molecule size to penetrate further into the skin than conventional ingredients. This enables it not only to nourish and hydrate, but to plump the extra-cellular matrix making Hydration+ the ultimate hydrator for ageless skin.

In addition to its ultra-hydrating benefits, Cyto-luxe Hydration+ contains Sweet Iris, a plant stem cell, that works deeply to rejuvenate, rebalance and regenerate skin, helping it look and feel firmer while Plankton Extract immediately smooths and refines skin's surface. For best results we recommend pairing with Cyto-luxe Vitamin C+ daily. After letting Cyto-luxe Vitamin C+ completely absorb, apply a small drop of Cyto-luxe Hydration+ followed by your favorite glo therapeutics moisturizer.

Product Highlight: Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer


Since the successful launch of Luxe Liquid Foundation a year ago, we’ve been anxiously anticipating the launch of additional products to build a complete Luxe line. Using the same light-diffusing technology, the all-new Luxe Liquid Bright Concealers are perfect new additions to the line and will help you create a complete Luxe look.
These lightweight, corrective concealer pens provide impeccable coverage while bringing light and brightness to your complexion. As a result you can instantly reduce the signs of fatigue and shadows by canceling out unwanted color. Not only do these pens help mask imperfections, but they aid in the softening of fine lines while improving your skin’s overall tone and radiance.
To apply Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer simply click the bottom of pen applicator to distribute product to brush tip and then apply to desired areas of the face. Lightly blend product with brush tip, fingertips or Dual Foundation/Camouflage Brush. The Concealers come in three shades that provide unique benefits such as overall concealing and highlighting (high beam), neutralizing redness and imperfections (brighten) and disguising dark spots or under eye circles (sunburst). Stay tuned on the blog for more in depth explanations and tutorials on how to use each product based on your personal skin concerns and tone! 
Here are some additional application tips:
  • While all three shades brighten, high beam delivers maximum highlighting, overall brightening and works especially well for fair to light skin tones as a general concealer.
  • To achieve a professional level highlight application, apply high beam to the high points of the face (center of forehead, brow bone, bridge of nose, upper cheekbone, bow of the lip and center of chin).
  • For canceling redness, brighten is your top choice.
  • Eliminate sallowness, shadows and dark under eye circles with sunburst.

Premium-Grade Ingredients: Triple-Milled Mineral Makeup




“This is the best Pressed Base I've ever used. The coverage is phenomenal. You can use it for a light dusting or for heavier coverage by layering it on. Blends in well and gives your face a flawless look.” - Holly, online review


Reviews like this one from Holly truly mean the world to us because we believe everyone can feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.  Because of our commitment to using ultra-fine minerals and a triple-milled process, we can ensure that every application provides flawless, continuous coverage. But what exactly does triple-milled mean?


Triple milling is a process used to refine particles to the absolute optimal size so they lay better on the skin for superior coverage.


For example, think of how pebbles look in a glass jar compared to sand in a glass jar. The sand looks smoother and more refined than the pebbles. If you hold up a flashlight and try to shine it through each glass jar, you will see the light coming through the holes in the jar filled with pebbles while you are unlikely to see the light shining through the jar filled with sand. This is because light is able to penetrate through the gaps left by the pebbles (larger particles) and is not able to do so when the particles are smaller (sand).


This same principle holds true for makeup. Makeup that is triple-milled will lie more smoothly on the skin and will provide greater coverage than makeup with larger particles. At glo, we begin with the smallest particles available and then triple mill them to ensure that every time you put on our award-winning makeup, it provides even, continuous coverage that lasts!


Read these additional Pressed Base reviews:


“I love this powder. It's so lightweight. I really can't imagine using anything else.” - Brianna, online review

“The coverage is amazing... it's full coverage but yet doesn't look like you have makeup on. That's the best!” - Laura, online review

Premium-Grade Ingredients: 100% Talc Free

Aug-Featured-2.jpg

There are many things that set glo minerals apart, not only from traditional cosmetic lines, but from other mineral makeup lines on the market today. Talcum powder (aka talc) is generally used as a bulking agent and it allows cosmetic companies to increase the amount of product they produce for the amount of pigment they put in. Since we are committed to only using high quality, premium grade ingredients, our formulas are 100% talc-free. Here are three more reasons why choosing talc-free makeup is so important for your skin:

1) Talc may exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Sensitive skin types may experience irritation and redness with the use of products containing talc.   

2) Products containing talc can increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because a talc particle is heavier than a mineral pigment, the talc will settle into both pores and wrinkles thus accentuating fine lines and clogging pores.

3) The lack of talc in glo minerals provides fuller coverage while using less product. This means that your base will last longer while still giving you the long-lasting coverage and protection you need.
