InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys Editors’ Picks

Neutrogena Acne Wash

Our trusty cleanser with a zingy new grapefruit scent. This invigorating face wash tackles pimples and sloughs off debris with a powerful dose of salicylic acid (exactly 2 percent)—but it doesn’t dry out the skin, even when used both in the morning and at night. ($7, drugstore.com)

Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15

This is the lip color you wish you had been born with—and because the sheer, rosy hue flatters all complexions, people might believe that you were. Bonus: The pigment is delivered in an oil-rich bullet that hydrates every bit as well as your thickest balm (without the goop factor). ($23, fresh.com)

DDF Advanced Moisture Defense UV Cream SPF 15

Flaky skin will happily soak up this rich cream, which is infused with turmeric, an Indian spice with powerful antioxidant properties. In clinical studies it made skin feel firmer and decreased fine lines in eight weeks. We’re just as pleased with the immediate results: plump, quenched skin, and a healthy glow. ($105, ddfskincare.com)

Aveeno Nourish + Moisturize

The hydrating wheat complex of this shampoo and conditioner penetrates the hair shaft, repairing strands from the inside out. It rinses away, leaving no residue, and has a gentle, unassuming scent. ($8, cvs.com)

Colgate Wisp

Sure, they’re tiny, but their effect is titanic! The breath-freshening beads nestled in these disposable toothbrushes don’t require water or rinsing. Bonus: They’ll fit into the smallest of evening bags for hassle-free cleaning. ($8, drugstore.com)

Jennifer Love Hewitt Debuts Another New Hairdo

Newly single Jennifer Love Hewitt ditched her bob for longer hair extensions while shopping in Beverly Hills Tuesday afternoon.

The actress, 31, chopped off her hair last month after announcing her split from boyfriend (and Ghost Whisperer costar) Jamie Kennedy.

Of her short, bouncy curls, Hewitt told UsMagazine.com, “I needed to feel lighter! We just finished season five of [Ghost Whisperer], and I was just ready for a change.”

She denied it was a post-breakup ‘do.

“I actually cut my hair before,” she told Us. “It’s just that I had to have long hair on the show, so I’d already done the haircut and we were just clipping in some pieces to keep it going. I just happened to finish filming and unveiled the haircut around the same time as the unveiling of the other news so now it’s become my ‘breakup haircut.'”

So how is she coping with the split?

“Yoga, 72 hours of ice cream … it’s all good!” she joked to Us. She’s also “trying to follow” the advice of her new book, The Day I Shot Cupid.

What do you think of her new look?

Ok here goes my road test of Garnier Herbashine is it really as easy as 10 minutes? I read over the insert and have all my goodies ready to go.

Goodbye roots!

Easy enough application I applied to my roots and then worked through my hair.

10 minutes later I am in the showering washing out, can’t wait to see my new color.

Roots are gone, I love that it was so quick and easy!

Garnier Herbashine was a super quick 10 minutes and my haircolor came out great, very even and super shiny.

Overall I am happy with the way the color came out, though it was a bit darker than I expected. Based on the color I used (800 Medium Natural Blonde) I thought it would lighten my roots to match my highlights but I think it darkened my hair a little . Its still a great blonde shade though and the roots are long gone and my hair is so soft and shiny.

Another great thing about this ammonia free formula from Garnier, Herbashine  didn’t have a harsh scent or burn my scalp like other haircolors I have used in the past. that I have felt from lightening my hair. The 10 minute formula was perfect for a busy mom like me. I was able to drop off my daughter at school, workout and color my hair and still be on time to pick her up, Love it!
