The Glow Kit
Get all the glow. Two where-have-you-been-all-my-life formulas. You asked us to create a brand new way to highlight that was more dew than strobe, more balm than powder, more skincare than makeup. So Glowy Super Gel and Dew Balm were born - the new way to shine.
Cleaning up your makeup bag.
- Hyaluronic Acid
A clear liquid that's found naturally in the skin and helps retain moisture, creating a cushion that penetrates the skin to plump it from within.
- Marshmallow Root Extract
Marshmallow (the fruit, not the candy) helps calm inflammation or redness in the skin and encourages moisture retention.
- Nourishing fatty acids
Dew Balms are full of a variety of fatty acids: jojoba esters, olive oil, and sunflower seed oil. These make the formula feel smooth and rich, while hydrating and plumping the skin from within.
Glycerin that's plant derived is a super powerful humectant. It protects against environmental stressors, works with the other oils and squalane in the formula to help increase the skin's natural moisture level, and it is very gentle and non-irritating for a variety of skin types.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps to brighten the skin, so this formula has a skin care effect, too!
- Rose Hip Seed Oil
Rose hip seed is super antioxidant-rich, brightening skin and helping to moisturize at the same time.
Break up with the bad stuff.
- High levels of hydrogenated polyisobutene
This ingredient makes formulas smooth, shiny, and cushiony, but can be inflammatory and comedogenic.
This is literally plastic, and we don't want that on our skin! It's the main ingredient in any PEGs, so avoid those, too.
- Non-naturally derived butylene glycol
Butylene glycol can work as a humectant to draw moisture into the skin, as an aid for helping other ingredients work more effectively, or to make the formula have a smooth creaminess. But the petroleum-derived butylene glycol can be an irritant, so be cautious.
Isohexadecane creates a milky, rich texture in a formula without leaving skin greasy or weighed down. However, there's a big risk it's contaminated by 1,4-dioxane, which is an environmental pollutant and can be super irritating.
Even though they don't absorb into the skin, silicones can be comedogenic, making it impossible for pores to breathe, and they're also bio-accumulative, meaning once they're washed off, they build up into a silicone sludge in our waterways that isn't great for marine life.
- Polyethylene glycols (PEGs)
PEGs can often be contaminated with ethylene oxide, which is a carcinogen and obstructs human development.
