New! Kiehl’s Sun Protection in 3 new formulas

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly introduces 3 NEW sun-protection formulas, ensuring both face and body are fully protected until the sun sets! I’ve attached press releases for more details and hi-res images are in the links at the bottom of this e-mail, and the line-up includes skincare for daily use, for eye protection, and for active or beach use:

Super-Fluid-UV_125ml_RENO

A must have for summer. I love this ultra thin lotion it absorbs quickly, smells great and leaves a matte finish on my skin. Perfect for my combo skin this paraben free sunscreen doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I use this prior to my makeup everyday to create a great base that feels good and protects my skin from sun damage.

Super Fluid UV 50ml
First up, for daily use: an improved formula of Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, a lightweight paraben-free formula that’s silky, non-greasy and leaves a matte finish on the skin. This formula is made for daily use, and creates a matte base alone, or under makeup, and is an efficient addition to your morning skincare regimen, ensuring that you’re protected every day. $38-$61.

201502_Clearly-Corrective-Dark-Circle-Perfector-SPF30_lg

Keihl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector wears like a BB cream. The formula is super light and blends easily. The touch of color instantly brightens my under eye area. The caffeine helps reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Between long summer nights and allergies this has been a lifesaver. It’s a great concealer that leaves my eyes looking brighter and more awake and not made up. On top of all that it has SPF  30 to protect my skin from sun damage!

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30
Instantly brightens and perfects the delicate eye area, reduces discoloration, and protects against future damage with SPF 30. The pigmented formula instantly brightens your under-eye area while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Activated Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, while caffeine helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. $38.

Kiehls_AquaLotion_SPF30

I usually opt for spray sunscreens as I find a lot of lotions are so heavy and don’t absorb well. Kiehl’s has changed my opinion with their Activated Sun Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Lotion. Its so incredibly lightweight and true to its name feels more like water than a lotion.

The lotion is so thin and light it was a breeze to apply and didn’t leave any residue. And with Broad Spectrum SPF30 it provides unbeatable protection. I use this on my face and body its so lightweight and doesn’t cause breakouts or leave any sticky feeling. And along with protecting my skin it contains antioxidants to repair my skin while it protects. I won’t be heading outdoors this summer without this in my bag.

Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body
Formulated with an advanced combination of sun-filters to provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a unique water-like texture that feels weightless on skin. Antioxidant Vitamin E helps condition skin, as the formula transforms to a water-like, weightless texture on skin, leaving it smooth, refreshed and protected.

Learn more about the new products and purchase at your local Keihl’s store or at Kiehls.com.

Sally Hansen Special Effects for Summer

pearl crush

When I first applied this polish I wasn’t too sure about the formula. It was more gel like than usual polish and took a bit of practice to not get too heavy of an application. The end result of Pearl Crush is beautiful. The  iridescent gel like color is a great neutral look and the crushed pearl adds a bit of sparkle.

SALLY HANSEN INTRODUCES A NEW SPECIAL EFFECT: CREATE A RADIANT, IRIDESCENT LOOK WITH PEARL CRUSH™

This summer, it’s time to get cultured—with pearls, that is. Sally Hansen introduces Pearl Crush™; a collection of eight new Special Effect polishes that give nails an eye-catching, shimmery finish. Inspired by the season’s iridescent trend, the Pearl Crush™ polishes have a unique combination of pigments that interact with layers of large, faceted glitter particles. The resulting effect: a 3D crushed pearl look that plays off light, lending a lustrous, vibrant look to summer manicures. Choose a softer tone or go dark—either way; you’ll want to wear these precious “pearls” everywhere you go!

SHADES: Oy-ster It Up!: Aw, shucks—this true white with faceted glitter catches the light beautifully, She Sells: Whether on the seashore or the city streets, this pale blush hue is pretty, pink perfection, Lady Crab: No need to pinch yourself—this dreamy hot pink really is as steamy as it gets!, Rainbow Fish: Casting off icy tones, this iridescent blue is quite the catch, Shell & Tell: The secret is out: A lovely lilac like this doesn’t come around every day, Mer-Mint: This splashy, soothing seafoam green is loaded with sea-inspired shimmer, Silver Scallop: Reflect on this modern take on metallics—a shape shifting silver that appears constantly in motion and Clam Digger: This lava-rock black stands out with flecks of phosphorescent-green glitter.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: This limited-edition Pearl Crush™ collection, SRP $5.99, is available beginning June 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.

instaombre

I am kind of obsessed with Insta-Ombre. I thought it was just another sparkle polish but it really is a standout. And whether I choose to do two basic coats for the sparkle or the third tip coat for the ombre its a stunningly beautiful polish. And pretty easy to remove for a glitter polish.

Will definitely be adding more shades of this to my collection. The color I am wearing below is Layer on Lilac, love it!

CREATE A DAZZLING GRADATED LOOK WITH NEW SALLY HANSEN® INSTA-OMBRE™ NAIL COLOR

It’s official: Ombré is the look of the decade. From runways to red carpets, from highlights to home decor, a gradated wash of color is perpetually on trend. Now, Sally Hansen makes it easy to create a sparkling ombré manicure with new Insta-Ombre™ Special Effect.

Available in eight high-impact glitter shades, this clever and innovative ombre-in-a-bottle makes it easy for women to achieve the look in just three simple steps. First, apply one coat to clean, dry nails. Next, apply a second coat from mid-nail to the tip. Finally, apply a third coat to only the nail tip. Voila: A radiant, wash of ombre color at your fingertips.

SHADES: As the first and last word in nail color, Sally Hansen offers eight shades to match every mood: Copper Cap: Beige that grows into a warm, copper glow, Cobalt Coat: Blue, from barely-there to intense, Layer On Lilac: A cool-toned take on purple, Scarlet Spark: A true red that fades into a whisper, Gold Grade: Metallic glitter, from quiet to saturated, Fuchsia-Nista: A bright pink with the slightest hint of violet, Jade Fade: An enviable emerald hue, Grey-diant: A stunningly sparkled fade from light to black.

big peel off

SALLY HANSEN INTRODUCES BIG PEELOFF BASE COAT

Everyone wants a manicure that looks perfect, resists smudges, and removes easily. Traditionally, it hasn’t always been easy to achieve those desired results. Now, however, Sally Hansen introduces a nail essentials to simplify and improve the at-home manicure regimen: Big Peel Off Base CoatTM .

For nail-art aficionados, glitter girls, and anyone else who lives for regular manicures, Big Peel Off Base Coat changes everything. Nail polish remover can be harsh on nails, leaving them dry and brittle—and therefore, prone to breakage. Hard-to-remove special effects such as glitters, textures, and shimmers can damage nails further by scraping the nail surface and can be a time consuming removal process.

That all changes with the introduction of Big Peel Off Base CoatTM. This fast, convenient easy base coat makes it easy to remove glitters and other special effect polishes in a single step. Just paint on the base coat, which quickly dries to a transparent finish. Apply nail polish as usual and enjoy the manicure. When it’s time for a change, simply peel off the polish in one fluid movement. No scrubbing, soaking, or fussing—just a clean, healthy-looking nail.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: Sally Hansen’s new Big Peel Off Base CoatTM , SRP $5.99 each, will be available in June 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.

Review: HCF – Happy Calm Focused Brain Supplement

hcf

I was given the chance to try HCF for a month and went in with an open mind. I figured at best I might feel a bit better at worst I took a supplement for a month that at least gave me a vitamin boost. Well after the first 2 weeks I could really feel the difference. Now this isn’t the wham bam abrupt change like a caffeine supplement or similar would give you. This is a daily supplement that creates daily long term benefits not a temporary high then crash.

I’m a single full time mom to 3 kids 10 and under and am self employed. So you can say I know what it feel like to be stressed, cranky and unable to focus. I am really excited about how the great this pill worked to help deal with my daily stressors. There wasn’t a pill I took that made me feel like a new person but day by day as I took my supplement I found I was changing for the better. The first thing I noticed was I was much happier, even when I had a hard day I seemed to be able to stay positive and keep a grin on my face. I also was keeping calm, calm to the point where sometimes it made me smile that I didn’t get all frazzled by little issues. And last but not least Focused! I struggle with ADD and focus is always an issue for me. Especially having ADD and working on the internet for a living. So many rabbit holes!!

This pill won’t make you look 10 years younger or 20 lbs thinner overnight. But one of the things I love about this pill is that it doesn’t make crazy claims that are all smoke and mirrors. It’s not a magic bean but it has helped me stay happier, calmer and so much more focused throughout my day. And for this mom that feels a bit like magic some days. This will definitely be a supplement I keep as part of my daily regime.

HCF Happy Calm Focused Brain Supplement $39.95
HCF® Happy, Calm & Focused® is an original, pure and effective dietary supplement, considered one of the most exciting discoveries in brain supplementation in decades!*

The advantage HCF has over other brain supplements is that typical brain supplements rely on high dose ’50 ingredients-in-1′ glorified multi-vitamins or just herbs to artificially give your brain a lift, while HCF supports feeding your brain’s own neurotransmitters with what it is ‘suppose to have’ – F&Q amino acids. These two powerful key amino acids are found in whole-food proteins like fish, milk, cheese and turkey. F&Q works by supporting the increase of “feel good” neurotransmitter levels responsible for helping you feel happy, calm and focused every single day.

FQ-is-Different-small

Phenylalanine (F) is an amino acid of tremendous nutritional importance and a known nutritional precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline) and involved in the release of PEA, phenylethylamine which can sensitize endorphin receptors to endorphins. These neurotransmitters strongly support warm feelings of love, pleasure, happiness, alertness, energy, motivation, memory, attention, internal calmness, and sleep to name just a few.*

L-Glutamine (Q) is an amino acid and a major precursor for the neurotransmitter GABA, or gamma amino butyric acid. This crucial amino acid helps the mind relax and “tone down” unwanted “mind chatter” which can sharpen a person’s ability to focus and concentrate with more clarity.*

Associated Neuro-Nutrients are what make HCF so highly effective. These absolute, and precise levels of synergistic vitamins, minerals and other nutrients support the F&Q “key” amino-acids to pass through your BBB and finally nutritionally feed your brain.*
