Renee Baio and her husband, actor Scott Baio, have faced the fears of most parents and been lucky enough to experience the miracle of a 'false positive.' When they took home their newborn daughter, Bailey, they were given the devastating news that she had been born with a metabolic disorder known as GA1. After a three excruciating months, the diagnosis was amended, and they celebrated the arrival of their healthy baby girl. However, they learned that not all parents are so lucky, and many wouldn't experience that same miracle.
They created the non-profit Bailey Baio Angel Foundation with the express mission of heightening awareness of the importance of newborn screenings; to create, promote and facilitate legislation for mandatory screenings; and to raise funds through promotional activities and sales to support children and families affected with GA1 and OAs.
Renee has partnered with California-based TNT Cosmetics to launch a line of all-natural, cruelty-free lip glosses and balms to benefit the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation. The Baio Blossom Lip Glosses are lightly pigmented, creamy, conditioning glosses. Their sister product, the Baio Bliss Lip Balms are potted conditioning balms; both products have bold, whimsical flavors.
These glosses apply smoothly and wear softly. They blend beautifully with lip liners and deliver just a hint of color. Great for younger wearers, but not exactly for those who want a lot of color. The balms leave your lips feeling hydrated and conditioned. Pricing is incredibly competitive, making these products perfect for gifts - and there is the added benefit of knowing proceeds support a worthy non-profit cause.
