At goGLOW we are completely beauty obsessed, and with Melanie Richard’s make-up artist status we end up spending the tail end of many nights discussing the intricacies of contouring, highlighting, bronzing and lip shines. When we opened our goGLOW 50th & France flagship, we knew we wanted to bring in a new product that made everyone look and feel beautiful. More importantly, it needed to fall in line with our non-toxic philosophy; no parabens, no petrolatum, no mineral oil, no sulfates, just pure clean beauty.
Enter RMS. Oh, and goGLOW is the only sunless tanning boutique in the nation approved to carry RMS products. Pretty amazing, right?
Rose-Marie Swift has been a celebrity make-up artist for over 20 years; her work has been featured in Vogue’s all over the world, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Glamour and graced the runways of the world’s top designers. Her portfolio includes the faces of Gisele Bunchen, Zoe Saldana, Miranda Kerr, Demi Moore and Isabel Rossalini.
Several years ago, Rose-Marie began to experience some health issues that were causing her problems physically, mentally and emotionally. After an extensive series of tests, she learned that her blood contained toxic levels of heavy metals including aluminum, barium, cadmium, lead, mercury as well as high levels of pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
All of these toxicities were directly related to her use of cosmetics during her line of work and her personal use of cosmetics on her skin. She was surprised that cosmetics could contribute to serious health issues. She then realized she wanted to help other women claim their right to healthy beauty, and to achieve this goal she created RMS Beauty, her acclaimed line of organic color cosmetics.
WHAT GOES INTO THE PRODUCTS
If you’ve ever had a goGLOW spray tan, you know that all of our goGLOW girls share in depth knowledge of INGREDIENTS and how common toxic ingredients directly interact with your body and skin functions, and subsequently your goGLOW tan. We believe everything we put on our skin can have healing properties within the skin and body, so we love that RMS brings this mission statement to life. RMS beauty products are full of organic, raw and living ingredients which interact with your body to encourage a healthy environment for our skin to flourish naturally. RMS beauty is all about the synergistic interchange between healthy living skin and the ingredients in products that you’re putting on it. Our passion with each goGLOW client is to bring the education of skin care to life while making our clients truly glow, from the inside out.
You can find our favorite certified organic ingredients in the whole range of RMS Beauty products.
The Living Luminizer ($38) is easily their best seller, and for good reason. It has achieved cult-beauty status with supermodels and beauty editors alike. The reason it’s so special, Rose-Marie Swift explains, is that it’s actually mica (shimmer pigment) mixed with oils. “The cosmetics industry is scared of oils,” she says with a laugh. “If a bigger brand were to replicate this product, they’d probably use petroleum oil. But, I wanted something good for the skin that would actually stay, so I chose coconut and castor. The residue from both is the perfect relationship for light-reflective properties to make the skin glow and look dewy.” The living luminizer is made with certified organic coconut oil, certified organic castor seed oil, certified organic beeswax, certified organic rosemary extract which serves as its preservative and non-GMO vitamin E.
Buriti Oil (Mauritia Flexuosa), originating in Brazil, is pressed from the moriche palm tree’s nuts to deliver one of the richest sources of beta-carotene known. In addition, buriti oil is full of antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamin A, giving it the ability to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Recently it has been found to filter and absorb cancer-causing UV rays from the sun. It is also known to protect against the sun’s free radicals, nourish and moisturize the skin to keep your face looking young and fresh. All of this is found in the Buriti Bronzer by RMS ($28).
This ultra sheer cream bronzer is a huge step away from the typical orangey/sparkly bronzers that saturate the market. Bronzers should give the appearance of glowing, healthy sun-kissed skin, and nothing more. This bronzer is a glowing cream bronzer, without the orange, without the pink and without the grey – giving just the right amount of warm, sun kissed skin.
We can’t talk about RMS without mentioning their breakthrough new product, Coconut Oil Makeup Remover Wipes ($16 for a box of 20 wipes, and $1 for one). These are truly the ultimate makeup remover, and have been goGLOW girl tested and approved! “Let’s bring makeup wipes back to nature”, Rose Marie says. Coconut oil is renowned for its high concentration of lauric / caprylic acid, known for its natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, making it the perfect healthy choice for a multi-use cleansing cloth. This is the perfect solution for even the laziest face-washers, as they come in individual packets. Perfect for traveling and on the go! These wipes truly took ALL of our makeup off, even our extensive Halloween fun makeup, and left our skin feeling super hydrated and glowing with the perfect amount of ORGANIC coconut oil leftover to nourish our skin before bed.
These wipes have so many uses and purposes;
– Melts away stubborn eye makeup with ease
– Cleanses skin without stripping or irritation
– Nourishing and moisturizing for sensitive skin
– Safe for use near delicate eye area and lashes
– Helps to soothe rashes and sunburn
– Calms and softens post-shave skin

– 100% eco-friendly
– 100% certified organic coconut oil
