What is all the rage about over this honey love mask?
Glō founder Megan Ulrichs gives us the inside scoop on the inspiration behind this new limited edition product.
"I have been formulating this mask for over a year now, using local raw honey and getting nice results; but not exactly what I was hoping for. Our sons spend the winters in Mexico to paraglide in a small village called Valle De Bravo... while visiting (and flying!) for the holidays, I was able to source the raw honey used in this mask. I was blown away by its bloomy aromatic scent, light texture and floral taste. These qualities were unparalleled to ANY honey I've ever experienced. The beekeepers daughter at the market explained to me how they raise their bees on land free of chemicals and far from the village.
This isolated mountainous land enables the bees to feed on organic nectar at all times, making for superior quality honey.
Needless to say, I left with a few jars and got right to work in my glō lab...the final product was so beautiful that I sent my son directly to the beekeeper for a couple more liters of this liquid gold. He had the good fortune of watching the beekeeper scrape the honey off of the comb!

Also used in this mask is Passion Fruit Oil - also known as Maracuja Oil - which happened to be in season in Mexico as well. Knowing the medicinal qualities of this brilliant fruit, I just had to find its oil. The beta carotene, vitamin A and C in Passion fruit boosts the cellular turnover and wound healing qualities of this mask.
The dried fruit powders come from Oregon, California and of course South America. A future trip indeed is in the works to learn more about where these fruits are grown!
Use this mask a few times per week and allow it to sit on your skin anywhere from 5 minutes up to 3 hours. My favorite way to use it is to apply it in the morning for an extra skin boost and rinse it off in the shower, or to linger in a hot bath while performing the honey tapping. Honey tapping is a great way to stimulate lymphatic flow and collagen/elasticity.
I have poured so much love and knowledge into this new product and have no doubt in my mind you will LOVE it."
