Last year at Erik of Norway, we celebrated the release of Glo’s Cyto-luxe line with a raffle in which the winner received the Cyto-luxe line to find out for themselves how great it is. Cindy was the lucky recipient and she graciously allowed us to take before and after photos. She gave us great feedback and says that the most noticeable difference is that the hyper pigmentation she previously had is so much better now, and overall her skin is brighter, as you can see from the before and after pictures! Cindy’s favorite product is the Cyto-luxe Eye Cream, which she believes has helped her fine lines. She is also a fan of the Cyto-luxe Face Cream for improving her overall complexion. Cindy uses other products in the Glo Therapeutics line including the Ultra Vitamin C 15% and Advanced B5 Hydration (which helps stabilize hydration levels and gives softer, smoother skin).
Our esthetician Nicole has been performing facials on Cindy for the past 6 years. Nicole has watched her skin improve over time and says “It was fun to watch Cindy go through her Cyto-luxe routine and see the changes and discover her favorite Glo products. Cindy did not have a ton of concerns regarding her fine lines and signs of aging, but prevention is key. She has definitely experienced softening of her skin around the eyes and mouth and her skin tone is now even. She has been using our Glo line for the past year and half and has been very good with her at home care, so it was easy for her to pick up the Cyto-luxe line and follow the routine. Throughout this extremely dry Wisconsin winter Cindy’s skin has stayed hydrated, which is a first. I am so happy that she loves the products and is enjoying the benefits from using the Glo skincare line.”
The list of Glo products that Cindy has experienced include the following:
Thank you Cindy for being so amazing and letting us share the pictures.

On October 21st we were greatly saddened to learn that a former Erik of Norway colleague was murdered along with two of her co-workers at Azana Salon, in addition to four others that were injured. Zina Haughton is best described by EON employees as a fabulous stylist, caring friend, and wonderful mother. To show our support to Zina’s family and the Azana Salon Victims, we are partnering with ‘Cut It Out- Salons Against Domestic Abuse’, along with 80 other local salons, to help raise money for the Azana Victims Fund. On Tuesday, November 13th we will donate 10% of all retail sales, 10% of all gift card purchases, and a portion of services to the Azana Victims Fund. Please participate in this event at Erik of Norway Salon in Mequon and together we can make a difference! We also have purple ‘Domestic Violence Awareness’ bracelets to show your support- available while supplies last. Thank you to all those that have already purchased one, your donation is much appreciated!
“Halloween is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.” For a more detailed history of Halloween, visit http://www.History.com/topics/halloween
