New Contest! Brand New Infiniti Pro by Conair™ Spin Air Brush

 

Congrats to our winner Lisa!

A great new styling tool from Conair, the Spin Air Brush. What I like about it is the size its on the bigger side so its great for medium to long hair and gets the job done quick. Just towel dry your hair a bit and then you are ready to go just run the Conair Spin Air Brush through your hair in sections. I love how shiny my hair looks after and it doesn’t leave my hair frizzy like a normal hair dryer.

The Infiniti Pro by Conair™ Spin Air Brush

Want to put a new spin on your hair styling routine? Smooth, frizz-free and voluminous hair is now easy to achieve with the new Infiniti Pro by Conair™ Spin Air Brush! Shaped like a typical round hair brush you’d use to do a blow-out, the Spin Air brush combines two tools in one by blowing air through the rotating brush to volumize and add shine as you dry.

The tangle-free anti-static bristles allow you to customize your volume fast with or without the spin function. The powerful ceramic heat distributes heat evenly for less damage, and an anti-frizz ionic generator releases up to 100x more ions than ions created from natural sources. With up to 100x more ions, your hair will have maximum conditioning and shine! Choose from 2 heat settings plus cool setting and the multi-directional rotation (right/left) makes it easy for both right and left-handed users.

The Infiniti Pro by Conair Spin Air Brush is available nationwide at mass market and drug store retailers, as well as at www.conairspinair.com for an average retail price of $59.99.

Bethenny Frankel launching a skincare line!

Bethenny Frankel is expanding her ‘Skinnygirl’ brand!

The reality star – turned cocktail maker is going to launch her own beauty and skincare lines, with products that will deliver results without giving false hope.

“A $150 eye cream is ridiculous and absurd,” she told Women’s Wear Daily. “[Promises like] ‘you’re going to look like Heidi Klum in two days’ or ‘like you had a face-lift’ have always bothered me.”

The products are organized into four groups: lip treatments, face products, body potions and gift sets.

“I don’t want people to think in three days they’ll have no cellulite. That’s not going to happen,” she said.

Frankel’s Skinnygirl Face & Body Solutions will hit Wal-Mart shelves in November.

She said that she owes her good skin to using good products, not the priciest.

“I finally have good skin because I am consistent. I don’t worry about brands. I do buy brands that are not expensive, ones that don’t spend all the money on the packaging but on the ingredients inside.”

For fans of her low-calorie booze, there’s a product for you. Her bath gift sets smell like her Skinnygirl Margarita and Sangria.

It’ll be interesting to see how this line really works. The fact that they will make their debut at Wal-Mart makes me pause, not gonna lie.

Kim Kardashian reveals incurable skin condition!

Kim Kardashian has a flaw!? Stop the press! On Sunday night’s ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, Kim’s “incurable” skin disorder was revealed!

After her dermatologist revealed she has a psoriasis, a treatable skin condition that her mom also has – and a different diagnosis than Khloé’s theory that she had ringworm – Kardashian was told to take it easy and lead a “slower-paced life.”

Her response: “It’s just not possible.”

“My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots,” the reality star, 30, explained on the episode. “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect.”

She added: “When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines. Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots?”

Do you suffer from psoriasis like so many millions of people?

7 Skin Care Tips for Glowing Skin in Summer

About.com share 7 tips to get your skin glowing for summer. Check out these great tips on getting beautiful glowing skin this summer I have included some of my favorite products.

Crabtree and Evelyn -CITRON, HONEY & CORIANDER SKIN SMOOTHING BODY SCRUB

1. Exfoliate Your Body

It’s so very important to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don’t get rid of them, they’ll just sitting on your skin making you look dull and dry. No matter how much lotion you use, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down (you’ll want a facial exfoliator for your face and neck) and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin.

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream

2. Shave the Right Way

Find a good razor that won’t cause razor burn. I’m a fan of Gilette’s Mach 3. (compare prices) When picking out a shaving cream, don’t choose the $1.00 men’s cream; a shaving lotion is much better for your skin as it will hydrate and help ward off nicks and cuts. In a pinch? Use your conditioner for a moisturizing shaving cream.

EOS Hand & Body Lotion

3. Hydrate your Body with a Summer-Scented Lotion

Find a summery lotion that you won’t forget to put on. It’s time to pack away your thick winter body butters for more light summery lotions. You don’t have time to wait for your lotion to sink in, so look for something light fast absorbing. Gels and Purees are perfect fast absorbers.  Make sure you apply right after you dry off from your shower. You need to seal in the moisture your body just soaked in.

4. Get a Safe Summer Glow

You have so many choices when it comes to adding a little summer tint to your skin, and the tanning bed shouldn’t be one of them. Using a sunless tanner will give your skin a beautiful start to summer. Even if you’re not a fan of sunless tanners all over your body, you can happily use them on your face. If you alternate your facial moisturizer with one that builds a bit of color, you’ll have a healthy glow that will make it look as though you just spent the weekend on the beach. Most facial tanners build color gradually, by alternating with your regular moisturizer, you’ll never get too dark.


Crabtree & Evelyn LA SOURCE ® EXTREME FOOT THERAPY CREAM

5. Don’t Forget your Feet!

Winter boots have long since been packed away; it’s sandal season ladies. Either go and get a pedicure (try a beauty school if cost is a factor), or give yourself an at-home pedicure. You scrub off the dead dry skin to reveal your sandal ready feet. Nothing is worse than seeing dull dry feet inside cute sandals. It doesn’t have to be a big ordeal. Keep a foot scrub and file in your shower and scrub your feet a few times a week. You’ll notice a big difference in the softness of your feet.

Zoya Matte Nail Polish- Lolly

6. Find a New Bold Summer Polish

Buy a bold new polish for your toes. Toe nails can be painted a much bolder color than you would usually put on your fingernails. Pick out something that screams summer. Polish tends to stay on your toes much longer than your hands because you don’t abuse your toe nails like you do your finger nails. Apply a clear base coat, two applications of color and a clear top coat to protect. Go barefoot or put on your flip-flops for at least a couple hours to make sure your polish won’t dent.

Supergoop! EVERYDAY UV PROTECTION SPF 30+ Face & Body Moisturizer 3 oz. Super-Spray

7. Out With the Old – Buy a New Sunscreen

Throw away last year’s unused sunscreen for a new bottle. Sunscreens aren’t meant to last forever, and seeing most people don’t use as much as they should, I bet you have a bottle or two stored away. Be safe and pick up a new one. And don’t forget the most important sunscreen advice: USE IT. You should be using a shot glass full for your body, and a full teaspoon just on your face. Reapply every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun to ensure a summer full of safe sun fun.
