Cupid’s arrows are set to fly, and whether you’re prepping for a romantic Valentine’s Day date or Zooming with your besties, Bl’eau will help you embrace the day with gorgeously glowing skin. The brand’s dazzling lineup of natural yet potent skincare products is bursting with love: to you, with a luminescent complexion emerging from regular use; to the planet, thanks to all-natural ingredients sourced from the ocean and land; and to everyone around you, who will benefit from the happiness radiating from your confident self. Plus, with Bl’eau’s Valentine’s week campaign kicking off February 7, there’s no excuse to skip the skincare!
The team at Bl’eau is passionate about the planet, particularly since their holy grail ingredient is sourced from the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay has spent centuries collecting skin-soothing minerals, micronutrients and rare elements proven to detoxify, rehydrate and replenish the skin. The purifying clay is sourced from the waters surrounding British Columbia using a sustainable harvesting process that doesn’t harm the environment. Much rarer than typical glacial clays, the oceanic clay is combined with soothing ingredients like organic aloe vera juice and organic coconut oil to gently exfoliate while nourishing the complexion and teasing out a rosy glow. Bonus: Bl’eau is committed to sustainable operations, with every product free of toxins and parabens and never tested on animals.
If you’re new to Bl’eau, start with the NSF-certified organic Glacial Oceanic Clay Mask and you’ll soak in all the vibes of respect and love for the earth – plus, your skin will be softer, brighter and more even-toned. Use the mask once or twice per week to exfoliate and soothe winter redness, gradually shifting to once per week in the spring and summer. Remember, winter skin has spent an entire season slathered with serums, balms and oils, and requires regular exfoliation to slough off dead skin cells. In the warmer months, lightweight moisturizers allow the skin to breathe, and exfoliation should be kept to a minimum.
After masking, restore skin’s pH to balanced levels with a few spritzes of the Glacial Mineral Toner, a lightweight and quick-absorbing blend that deeply hydrates, improves natural elasticity and protects skin from free radicals. The toner is powered by Canadian Glacial Oceanic Mineral Water, the pristine liquid found in Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay that’s ultra-rich in skin-nourishing sea minerals. After carefully extracting the magical elixir, Bl’eau infuses it with red maple bark, a powerful source of collagen that helps control sebum and reduce acne, and sugar maple extract, which adds a healthy dose of antioxidants. Keep the toner close by on Valentine’s Day: a few spritzes throughout the day will keep your skin dewy and clear.
The final step is applying moisturizer. In winter, reach for moisturizers with extra-nourishing ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil, such as Bl’eau’s Hydrating Glacial Moisturizing Emulsion. Take a few extra minutes to massage the moisturizer into skin, or use a gua sha tool or face roller to ensure the product penetrates deeply (plus, facial massage is a fabulous way to show yourself some love!). In spring and summer, turn to lighter moisturizers with a base of water or hyaluronic acid, such as the Hydrating Glacial Moisturizing Cream.
The Day of Love is a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to Bl’eau’s skin-saving products, so you can celebrate yourself while building the perfect product base for spring. Bl’eau’s Valentine’s Week promotion (February 7 to 14) shines love on couples everywhere, as well as single gals and guys committed to achieving their best selves. With every purchase of two or more full-sized items – whether masks, moisturizers or toner – receive a free jade roller (tip: store it in the freezer so it’s refreshingly cool when you massage it against your skin).
