“Sothys Spring Renewal” contest

Congratulations to our winner, Summer please watch your inbox.

Let’s face it – although Spring has just arrived, the warm weather is more than a few weeks away. And unfortunately, the pale skin trend that has captivated so many Twilight fans is starting to fade. Still, there is no reason why we should wait in vain for the sun to come out. While the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore may not agree, a healthy year-round glow does not require hours at the tanning salon!

Legendary skin care company Sothys offers a luxurious product line that brings out the warm tones in your skin. The Cellu-Guard® line improves skin tone and firmness even when the weather is most drab. Sothys’ mission in creating their new products was to create a simple approach to year-round healthy color. Let the remarkable results of these tantalizing products speak for themselves.

· Face and Body Self-Tanning Cream: Within a few hours, this non-tinted cream formula gives a natural, sublime and long-lasting tan to the skin. Its velvety texture is enriched with moisturizing ingredients for a supple look and a radiant complexion. The lightweight formula glides smoothly over the skin, ensuring a streak-free application every time. Price: $38 (5 fl. oz.).

· Soins Soleil Cellu-guard Age-defying tinted care: A lotion carefully formulated to protect the skin from aging and to help retain suppleness. A tinted texture gives a sublime tanning effect upon application. Price: $44 (1.7 fl. oz.)

For seamless color, be sure to exfoliate your skin completely before applying a sunless tanner. Before applying, thoroughly rub lotion into your elbows, knees, ankles, and any other extra dry areas to balance out the color. Apply the cream evenly as you would a moisturizer. In just a few hours, you’ll look like you spent the weekend in the tropics, without risking damage to your skin.

About Sothys

In 1946, Sothys was a beauty institute in Paris, where a list of exclusive customers enjoyed fine French products created by Dr. Hotz, a medical biologist. Sothys was acquired by the Mas family in 1966 and by 1970 Sothys had entered the US market under the direction of esthetician Christian Garces. Sothys became an instant hit for estheticians looking for a professional, results- oriented product line. Over two decades later, it continues to be the forerunner in the beauty industry. Much of Sothys’ success is due to its focus on continuous, complementary education to estheticians and therapists. At the Sothys Institute in Miami, and at regional Sothys offices throughout the US, classes are offered, with topics ranging from hands-on body workshops to cosmetic chemistry.

Cheap and Sleek – Karite Contest

Congratulations to our winner Donya, please watch your email inbox!

One of the biggest beauty conundrums that woman face is how to keep frizzy and unruly hair soft, silky and manageable. Women often spend hundreds of dollars and waste hours of time testing the latest styling tools or expensive frizz-defying products, which claim to restore health, sleekness and manageability.

A new salon treatment formulated with a popular Brazilian ingredient, Keratin, offers women a different way to manage their frizz, but at a very high cost, and is therefore not suitable for everyone.

The Karite Special, an intensive treatment for restoring dry and damaged hair, is rich in Shea Butter, which revitalizes the hair’s capillary fiber leaving hair soft and silky as well as luxuriously fragranced.

* Karite Anti-Frizz
o With its irresistible fragrance, Karite Anti-frizz is a heat-activated, leave-in product for all hair types that helps keep your hair soft while preventing frizz throughout the day. Price $7.49
