Hello Beautiful Babes! Time for some more of my favorite finds from my recent trend seeking adventures:
Magik Protection Keratin
I tried out this formaldehyde free keratin hair straightening system at IBS in NYC (I was chosen as a model :-)) and I am pleased to report it was an easy, quick fabulous procedure. It took just about an hour to complete the entire process, it didn’t drip or have any nasty toxic fumes and it was light weight and smelled pleasant (no surgical masks needed). I have had the traditional Brazilian Blowout in the past, and this is a much gentler, better for you, less toxic experience. And my hair looks shiny, smooth, and straight and is effortless to style. I am going to use Magik Keratin’s follow-up maintenance care products and report back to you about the wear, on going maintenance and longevity of this gentler hair straightening procedure.
Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System with Anti-Aging Sea Serum
The Opal is the latest innovation by Clarisonic that gently infuses an anti-aging serum via sonic waves into the delicate skin around the eyes in order to help the eyes look refreshed and renewed . By using this device just one minute a day, you will notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and firmer, more hydrated skin. The skin around your eyes is supposed to look refreshed, energized, brighter and healthier. I am already a fan of the Clarisonic brush and this sounds like a very inspired little device that I am excited to try–I’ll try anything that helps my tired old eye area look more youthful 🙂
The Socializer Bright Lights and Late Nights
Speaking of making your eyes look younger, I am adoring this cheeky new product duo by Elizabeth Grant called The Socializer Bright Lights and Late Nights (don’t you just love the name!) This fun duo helps you combat the tell tale signs of being out late with little sleep. Bright Lights is an AM hydrating, cooling, soothing, de-puffing, dark-circle erasing, illuminating product that you use for that much needed morning perk-up. Late Nights is your night time secret weapon that you apply before you crash and wake up looking like you slept like a baby. It’s your too-much-fun-too-little-sleep remedy. These products sound totally up my alley and I look forward to putting them to the test.
In Style Nails
This is an innovative new nail design technology that prints beautifully vivid digital images right on your nails. Basically, you upload your own design or take a picture and upload it and then a pro helps you print it right on your nails in less than a minute. This booth was jam packed at IBS and I think it is pretty unique. Want to put your kids faces on your nails? This is the ticket 🙂
AquaSun Sunless Tanning Airbrush System
I thought this was pretty cool: It is an adjustable handheld airbrush wand that you use yourself to deliver an even, salon-quality tan in the comfort of your own home. It supposed to be minimally messy and deliver a gradual tanning mist. Since Spring and Summer are around the corner, I think this would be a recessionista friendly way to get a pro-quality tan for a fraction of the the price.
