Glytone Acne Treatment Kit

If your skin is anything like mine, sometimes you need a good acne treatment kit!  Glytone is one of the best! The new Glytone Anti-Irritating Formula Acne Kit is designed to deliver optimal efficacy without irritation. The Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid is proven to be the optimal combination to efficiently fight acne. 

Glytone Acne is a non-irritating, (perfect for my sensitive skin) non-comedogenic line that features advanced formulas suitable for acne-prone skin.  During your breakout, using the Acne Self-Foaming Cleanser in the mornings and before bed, the Acne Lotion after cleansing (up to three times a day, if needed) and the Acne 3P Gel on the affected areas will miraculously clear up those awful breakouts quickly! 

Glytone Antioxidant Renew Anti-Aging Night Cream contains a unique blend of peptides, antioxidants and free glycolic acid to help reduce the visible signs of premature aging.  Renew works overnight to help refresh and renew your skin's appearance for a smoother, younger-looking complexion!  It's appropriate for all skin types so, if like me, you have super sensitive skin, you can use Glytone Antioxidant Renew!

The Miracle Foundation That Just Got MORE Miraculous!

Looking for a do-it-all foundation that won't melt off during the summer heat?  Like me, I'm sure you are!  I'm excited to report that I have found it - Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation from Hourglass absorbs oil and camouflages imperfections, while its super smooth, velvet matte finish eliminates the need for powder (which can get heavy on your skin when the temperature heats up!) and touch ups throughout the day! 

During the warmer months I do everything I can to avoid a heavy foundation and try sticking mainly to lightly tinted moisturizers.  Unfortunately those don't always do the trick, leaving blemishes and skin imperfections a little more obvious than I'd like.  Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation is unlike anything you've (or I've) ever tried.  It really is humidity-proof and dries instantly to a long-wearing matte finish.  Even after spending the afternoon in the blazing heat, my skin still looked amazing and not at all oily or shiny.

After surveying hundreds of clients and reviewing Immaculate testimonials, Hourglass commissioned an independent study to document the foundation's astonishing short and long term skin benefits.  Based on a four week study here's a few of the awesome things they found:

  • 100% reported an improvement in overall skin appearance & skin smoothness
  • 100% reported that the product worked without drying skin out
  • 83% reported a decrease in oil production and the need for touch ups (yay!)
  • 80% reported a visible improvement in acne scars
  • 70%  reported visible improvement in acne scars
  • 63% reported a reduction in the severity of breakouts

I'm so glad I found Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation!  I can't wait for you all to try it and let me know what you think!

Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation can be found in over a dozen different shades at Sephora, Barney's New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Space NK and online!

Rene Furterer Hair Masks Leave You With Hydrated, Bouncy Locks

When once healthy hair becomes dull, brittle, lifeless and difficult to style, it's a sure sign that your strands and scalp have become stripped of natural lipids, Mother Nature's moisturizers.  Along with the daily wear and tear that causes nutrient depletion and moisture loss, lipid deficiency can result from environmental and emotional stress, even illness-which means conditioning treatments need to be super intense to get damaged hair back to it's shiny, soft, bouncy self!

Used after shampooing on damp hair, leave Rene Furterer Karite' intense nourishing mask on your hair for about 5 minutes, weekly, or even several times a week depending on how badly your hair needs this special treat!  You will be amazed at how soft your locks will feel!  And it smells amazing!  Karite' is 100% Silicon, Paraben, Sulfate and Sodium Chloride-free so it won't fade your salon color!

Rene Furterer Carthame gentle hydro-nutritive mask is another awesome, super hydrating hair mask designed to hydrate strands with the essential nutrients they lack for moisture and protection.  Rich in Carthame, Hazelnut oil, Vitamin B5 and a patented moisturizing complex, this mask instantly  hydrates and protects deep within the hair shaft.  Perfect for use on normal to dry hair, this lightweight texture will leave your hair bouncy and radiant.  After shampooing, apply in sections on damp hair and leave in for 2-5 minutes before rinsing. 

Rene Furterer products can be found a fine salons nationwide and at Beauty.com and ReneFurtererusa.com

Turo Skin: For the Active Lifestyles of Today's Man

If your main squeeze is anything my husband, skin care doesn't even register in his brain!  My  husband has been making fun of all of my "lotions and potions" as he calls my skincare products, for years.  He is always complaining about dry skin but won't listen when I tell him he is more than welcome to use my daily moisturizer and night creams and I know it's because he wouldn't be caught dead using anything "girly"!  Thankfully I've found Turo Skin designed just for a man's skin.

I set my husband up with Turo Skin Daily Moisturizing Lotion + Sunscreen, Turo Skin Regenerating Night Cream with Encapsulated Retinol and Turo Skin Protective Lip Balm Treatment with SPF 15.  He's been using all three for the past seven days and I haven't heard him complain about dry skin since!  Luckily the packaging is blue and silver and very manly otherwise my super rugged man would probably have just thrown everything in the trash. 

Since he works outside no less than 12 hours a day, I'm glad he's now protecting his skin with Turo.  The Moisturizing Lotion provides moisture and hydration while protecting against environmental damage.  It also helps sooth irritation caused by razor burn.  Turo Regenerating Night Cream boosts skin elasticity and helps promote cellular turnover with reparative antioxidants, something he doesn't care about but should! 

Instead of his usual Chap stick, my husband has been using Turo Protective Lip Balm around the house and before bed.  I knew I was grasping at straws when I told him to keep in his truck but at least he's using it at home!  It's invisible and matte so there is no glossy shine, a bonus for men!  It helps protect against the outside elements such as the sun and wind.

I'm glad I've found a man-friendly product that my husband will actually use!  For more information on how to get the guy in your life on the skin-care wagon check out Turo Skin's website by clicking here!

Bust Breakouts With No 'Zit' Sherlock Rubberizing Mask from Bliss!

As I've posted before, I love the No 'Zit' Sherlock breakout-busting line from Bliss because it really does work!  The breakout-busting rubberizing mask facial treatment will boost your blemish-battling regimen!  This crazy-looking (it's rubber, after all) mask is a weekly staple if you have pimple-prone skin.  It's unique rubber texture is designed to temporarily envelope skin's surface to purge pores and absorb impurities.  It's packed with pore-de-clogging, oil-absorbing, super-soothing extracts and nourishing, detoxifying seaweed. 

The kit includes 6 packets of the mask, 6 spatulas and 1 scoop.  Just add contents of the packet to a bowl, fill scoop with water and mix with one of the wooden spatulas until you have a smooth paste.  Since it is rubber, you do have to work quickly so you can apply to your face and neck before it starts to rubberize.  Once the mask is on, wait 20 minutes until mask is fully rubberized, then peel it off!  The peeling off part was a bit messy so I suggest laying out some paper towels on the counter before you start peeling that way the chunks that fall won't be all over the place!  Give it a try, you will love it!

Erno Laszlo: Total Blemish Treatment

My thirties have brought me a lot of things, a beautiful home, a loving and hard working husband and even the realization that maybe my mom really is always right.  Unfortunately, my thirties have also brought me pimples!  How I went through my high school years zit-free only to end up with pimples at thirty four is beyond me.  When one of those monsters threaten to ruin my otherwise not-so-bad complexion, I need to be ready for battle.  My latest find is Erno Laszlo Total Blemish Treatment.  This miracle in a bottle, found at Neimans, Nordstrom, Bergdorf's and other fine department stores, addresses the skin, not just the acne.  I had a small eruption of three horrific pimples the other day and immediately dabbed on Total Blemish Treatment.  I've been using it on those three spots for the last couple of days and I can't believe the difference a day makes.  You can hardly even tell I had a zit let alone three in one spot!  Erno Laszlo is a little on the pricey side, at $90, but it is absolutely worth it and will last you a very long time.

Here are just some of the features and benefits you want to know about:

  • Beta Hydroxy Acid and Retinol speed exfoliation and reduce the adhesion of dead cells, helping blemishes drain.
  • Arnica conditions skin, speeds healing and promotes new tissue growth.
  • Panthenol stimulates cellular proliferation and aids in tissue repair.
  • Aloe Vera works as an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and wound healer.

Plump Your Kisser with Eminence Kiss

Something new to me that I love is Eminence Organic Skin Care Lip Plumper and Lip Plumping Gloss.  The Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper is amazing!  It's a clear, light weight gloss that I've been applying over lipstick and lip stains for a seriously puffy pout.  Made with Cinnamon Oil, Eminence Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper invigorates and revitalizes lips to create a "bee stung" effect.  Although it smells of cinnamon, the Kiss Lip Plumper has zero taste!

The Soothing Power of Peony - Klorane Shampoo

I love the smell of peonies!  I didn't know that the Latin for peony means "capable of healing" and that peony extract soothes irritated, itchy scalps with its healing powers!  Native in the Far East, this plant extract contains paeoniflorine, an anti-irritant molecular compound rich in soothing, anti radical properties that are ideal for a sensitized scalp.

Even if you don't suffer from a dry scalp from time to time, Klorane Shampoo with Peony soothes the scalp and detangles hair in addition to giving your scalp relief from itching and irritation.  Excessive blow drying and even certain hairsprays can cause a tight, dry scalp.  Just one application of Klorane Shampoo with Peony is all you need to sooth that scalp!  The silicone, paraben and sodium chloride-free formula will help hold hair color longer and leave your hair soft and silky!

Available at Klorane.com for only $18 for a good size 13.4 fl oz!

Conceal, Contour and Highlight with Mally!

Have all the tricks of a makeup pro right at your fingertips!   With Mally Pro-Tricks Correcting Palette, you have everything you need to do the contouring Mally Roncal calls "war paint" to highlight your best features and contour your skin. 

I love this concealing kit because not only does it include three different shades (even in the "lighter" palette) so you can cover imperfections and enhance and contour other areas of your face with the same palette.  The formula is creamy and light and goes on super smooth for easy blending.  I'm still trying to master the art of contouring so here are some master tips from Mally Roncal herself!

"How do I use it: Using a sponge, a brush, or your fingers, take the lightest shade, and apply it everywhere you want to make something stand out--cheekbones, the center of the nose, on either sides of the nose, on the brow bones, on either side of the mouth, or in the center of the chin.

Now, take the darkest shade and apply it in the hollows of the cheeks, along the hairline, in the temples, and along the jawline. Softly blend any hard edges with your fingers.

Use the middle shade for your concealer underneath your eyes and on any blemishes. Finish by applying your foundation on top as you normally would, taking care of blend any remaining lines."

This awesome palette and tons of other cool stuff from Mally is available at QVC.com and MallyBeauty.com

Very Sassy by Mark.

A fragrance to be reckoned with!  Very Sassy from Mark. by Avon is amped up for lasting impact.  This yummy scent smells of fruity black currant, floral yellow jasmine and earthy musk.  Very Sassy is the perfect scent for Spring.  It's really light and will stir things up with a single spritz!  The body lotion also has some long lasting staying power and is actually moisturizing! 

A little something genius from Mark. by Avon are these cool Solid Fragrance Pencils!  They're designed to "write" directly on your pulse points for maximum scent!  They're the size somewhere between an eyeliner and a tube of mascara and slide in your pocket, bag or anywhere!  I love these things! They would make the perfect gift for a friend, sister or co-worker!

I'm loving so much about Mark. and especially love the low prices! Have you seen everything Mark. has to offer?  Go and check out the website:  MeetMark.com and browse through the pages and pages of super cool cosmetics, fragrances and bath and body products!

CoverAid Therapeutic Concealer Helps You Conceal While You Heal!

Instead of covering up any acne scars and imperfections, why don't we camouflage and heal at the same time?  When I received CoverAid to try out, I was a bit skeptical thinking to myself, how is this different from any other concealer?  Then I read the literature included with CoverAid Therapeutic Concealer and found that this really isn't a concealer at all, but really a treatment that just happens to have a concealer-tint quality as an added bonus. 

Like everyone else on earth, I have a couple of blotchy areas on my face, from acne, that I cover up every day.  I'm also lucky enough to have the "cold sore" gene and get a gigantic cold sore on the same spot on my lower lip once a year that, after 34+ cold sores in my lifetime, has left me with somewhat of a scar.  CoverAid Therapeutic Concealer also helps to heal scars by evening out skin tone!  Oh lucky day!  It can even be used on your lips!

Some formula highlights:

  • Aquacacteen: Anti-redness properties reduce redness fast!
  • Lysine: Helps to promote faster healing (everyone with the cold sore situation knows this one!)
  • Onion Extract: Aids in reduction of inflammation while stimulating cell renewal reduces redness fast!

CoverAid Therapeutic Conceal can be found exclusively at Ulta by clicking here.

New York, NY (June 03, 2013) /PRNewswire/ — They stand out in a crowd. They have more fun. They always steal the spotlight. Blondes are a special breed—and they deserve special treatment. That’s why the John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® team is proud to appoint June as Blonde Appreciation Month—a time to celebrate what sets blondes apart and equip them with the expert care they need to preserve their signature shade.

To spread the word about Blonde Appreciation Month and ensure that blondes everywhere can preserve their salon-fresh blonde, John Frieda® Hair Care turned to modern blonde icon Megan Hilty. “Being a blonde is a big part of who I am,” reveals Hilty. “I feel my best when my blonde is at its brightest. As blondes, we’ll do whatever it takes to preserve our color. I partnered with the Sheer Blonde® brand to make sure that all the other blondes out there have the care they need to preserve their shade, during Blonde Appreciation Month and beyond.”

Megan is joining forces with John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® Hair Care to enlist blondes everywhere to share their unique vision of blonde with the brand, whether it’s a perfect beach sunrise or a buttery yellow daffodil. Photo submissions uploaded on blondemonth.com will be selected to become part of an “everlasting” artwork installation—a monument to blondes that will live on long past Blonde Appreciation Month to showcase the nation’s collection vision of what it means to be blonde. Megan will personally unveil the art installation at TK gallery on June 27th, showing the world what blonde looks like.

For blonde color that lives on long past your salon visit, look no further than John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® Everlasting Blonde® Shampoo and Conditioner, infused with safflower oil and bergamot extract. Formulated to protect the tones that keep blonde colour pure, the formulas prevent brassiness and fading to help maintain first-day colour for up to 10 weeks. The duo also maximizes the brightness and radiance of blonde colour while promoting soft texture, so blonde tones can truly shine.

Enhance Your Lashes with Eddie Funkhouser Quatro Variable Lash Mascara

I'm a complete mascara junkie.  I've tried them all and wear a coat or two of several different brands every day.  About seven months ago I finally committed to trying eye lash extensions and have since been addicted and cannot imagine how I ever made it through life without them!  Being the mascara lover that I am, I still coat my faux lashes with mascara each morning.  A lot of my old favorite brands didn't agree with my lash extensions either making them look like a clumpy mess or like spider legs, but Eddie Funkhouser Quatro Variable Lash Mascara works perfectly to keep my lush lashes looking naturally long and full.  With FX Dial Settings, Quatro Variable Lash Mascara gives you four different lash enhancing options:

  • Enhance and accentuate lashes while leaving them looking natural (My favorite)
  • Separate lashes creating fullness and volume
  • Separate lashes for EXTRA fullness and volume
  • Create maximum length, separation and definition

Where can you get this awesome 4-in-1 mascara?  At Rite-Aid stores nationwide coming this fall!  If you can't wait til then you can also get your mascara fix at EddieFunkhouser.com

Eddie Funkhouser's cosmetic line also includes (to name a handful) Luxlight Hydrating Primer, Revitalizing Foundation, Illuminator, Luminous Powder, 16 Hour 4-Way Liquid Concealer, Micromineral Foundation Powder, and Eye Gloss.

This is one to watch for!
