Radiant Glow Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C & B3 is a super light serum that is recommended for normal, oily, dry, combination, sensitive, rosacea, and aging skin.  Light enough to wear under makeup and perfect for summer wear.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance that’s produced by the body naturally. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin, inside joints, within the eye sockets and in other tissues where it helps retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility.

Hyaluronic acid will replenish moisture that is crucial to having younger-looking, supple skin. At the same time, it revitalizes skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and, glowingly hydrated to instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C and B3

Known as a natural brightener, Vitamin C is a topical antioxidant that’s been proven to be highly effective at inhibiting free radicals that cause wrinkles, sagging and general aging.

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is a hydrator and redness-reducer, perfect for anyone who has rosacea or dry, sensitive skin. It is an amazing multi tasker with several benefits for your skin. It helps reduce wrinkles, reduce uneven skin tone, help heal acne and reduce hyperpigmentation.

happy-birthday-to-us-5-years_blueOn December 3, 2011 Braquel’s Bathroom was officially opened on Etsy. After a name change and thousands of products sold, we are still here 5 years later, growing and thriving!

We are proud of what we have accomplished in a crowded handmade bath & body marketplace, but none of it would have been possible without our customers who gave our products a chance. We may not be as polished or as popular as some other handmade bath & body product shops, but we believe our products exceed in quality and our commitment to providing excellent customer service remains our top priority.

As we close out 2016, we can truly say this is our best year to date. We’ve expanded our product line to include skin care and personal care products made from all natural ingredients and the feedback from our customers has been amazing. We’re just as excited and passionate about sharing new products we have on deck for the new year as we were on day one.

Five years is major, thank you!

Happy Birthday To Us – Belle & Blaire Turns Three!

posted in: Etsy, News | 0

Three years ago today we opened our online store on Etsy. We’ve had some growing pains, a bunch of lessons learned and even a name change along the way, but our top priorities continue to be — to make quality handmade products to order that customers will love and our dedication to provide excellent customer service. Three years wouldn’t have been possible without our new and returning customers who found Belle & Blaire among hundreds of bath and body shops on the Etsy marketplace — and for that we are thankful!

Etsy Customer Reviews

Recent customer reviews on Etsy. Not only am I thankful for customers, I love it when they return to write nice reviews about my products. It lets me know that I am moving in the right direction when I create new fragrances and products. Feeling very thankful and blessed by the kind reviews.

Vegan- Fantasy Pear Sugar Polish Bubbling Scrub- Juicy Pear, Creamy Vanilla, Hot Butterscotch- 4oz

I’m usually not a fan of pear scents but I really like this one. Nice blend of all three scents. Came back to buy the butter and whipped soap. Excellent seller!!! Thank You!!! – CLSCRR, 12/6/13

NEW- Forest Berries Skin Salve- Raspberries, Blackberries, Smoky Vanilla, Musk- 4oz

This works!! For the first time in my life, I was getting patches of eczema on my face: eyelid and chin. I started applying dabs of this salve morning and night and noticed immediate improvement. In 3 days both spots cleared up! I wish I had had this years ago when my kids would get winter-skin eczema that wouldn’t clear with anything in the pharmacy. A BIG plus is the yummy berry fragrance! How GOOD not to smell like medicinal products all day, like a stinky advertisement that you are treating something yucky! If anyone whiffs this product on you, it just smells yummy. Kids will like it, too. Highly recommended!!! – Mara, 12/7/13

Vegan- Tantrum Perfume Oil- Bourbon, Vanilla, Woody, Cocoa, Cherry, Pecan, Musk- Roll On Perfume

A Fun wearable fragrance that blends in well any day! Despite its name, it’s a “feel-good” fragrance for me. Excellent service in this shop, fast shipping and careful packing. – Mara, 12/7/13

NEW- Vegan- Vanilla Woodsmoke Perfume Oil- Burning Woods, French Vanilla, Soft Lavender- Roll On Perfume

This fragrance does that “shifting to suit the day’s chemistry” on me: some days it is a vanilla fragrance, other times the wood smoke has come forth. At this time of year (and other cold seasons) that woodsmoke smell is a fun touch. Great fragrance! Inventive shop, fast shipping, reliable packaging. – Mara, 12/7/13

Vegan- Immortal Body Butter Cream- Rugged Leather, Pipe Smoke, Amber, Resin, Dark Musk- 4oz

Wonderful products, as always! Every time I order I discover a new favorite scent. The Immortal scent is masculine and dreamy. I love to layer the body butters and perfume oils together after a bath or shower. You’ve once again hooked me on a new scent. I will be back for more! Thank you Tyra 🙂 – Sara R., 12/7/13
