Save Stressed Strands with Surya Brasil!

I recently had the chance to try the Surya Brasil Color Fixation collection and it did wonders for my hair. I regularly get my hair highlighted to a brighter shade of blonde but after a few weeks I can start to turn brassy. A few weeks after my last color job I started using the Surya Brasil conditioning products and my hair looks  so great. It brightened right back up and the shine is to die for. I like that the products are natural and affordable at the same time! I just had my hair colored yesterday and I am going to run out to get some Surya Brasil shampoo to protect the color from the start!

SURYA BRASIL Color Fixation Collection

Don’t let sun-damaged, chemically-treated or over-chlorinated hair get you down. Revive your suffering strands with SURYA BRASIL and get sexy, healthy hair for fall and winter.

The SURYA BRASIL Color Fixation Collection—comprising six miracle hair products—makes it easy to repair and hydrate battered, thirsty locks at home without spending your entire paycheck. Created with nutrient-and-antioxidant-rich ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon like Buriti Fruit Oil (nourishes and improves elasticity), Cupuaçu Seed Butter (moisturizes) and Essential Oils of Rose Flower, Jasmine, Ylang-ylang and Sandalwood, these 100% vegetarian and paraben/sulfate/artificial fragrance-free products will restore lifeless strands and protect against harmful UV rays. Infuse your hair with the rainforest’s finest ingredients to create a silky head of hair for fall!

For best results, use the Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner together daily and apply the treatment products weekly or on an as-needed basis.

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 7!

Clarins 2010 Holiday Barocco Collection is inspired by the dramatic, daring and sensual style of the baroque period. From luxurious draperies to rich golds – this historical time was one of excess, glamour and mystery. The new collection from Clarins introduces four limited edition pieces that celebrate every woman and her unique beauty.

These new products make my list, because, well, I love them! The makeup itself is beautiful – but the cases, the cases each look like a piece of jewelry! I swear I feel like royalty when I pull them out of my purse.

I love this new collection. I love the golds, and deep black. It makes for a glamorous evening look. I know anyone else would love these pieces. One of them – or heck – all of them! They’re wonderful!!

* Barocco Face Palette: A soft, light compact powder with a scroll motif in peachy-pink and sandy-beige. The combination of the two shades is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion. ($55)

* Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder for Face and Décolleté: An elegant black and gold powder box holds little nuggets dusted with golden pearl. With a sweep of the puff, they release a fine powder to beautifully enhance the skin with sparkling reflections. (Here)

* Barocco Eye Colour Trio: A trio of shades that create the perfect smoky eye for day and night with these ultra-fine textures that can be combined, layered or blended together for perfect holiday makeup. Create a wash of bronze to enhance the eyes, black to define the eyelids and gold to catch the light and brighten the inner corners. ($40)

* Barocco Rouge Prodige: The purple velvet drapes of the Baroque period are the inspiration for the colour of this lipstick. The rich formula combines long-hold colour, extreme shine and total comfort. ($24)

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 7!

Give the gift of Brighter, More Beautiful skin!

The wisdom of aging great, the signs of aging not so much. For yourself or someone special in your life give the gift of Lumixyl Skin Topical Brightening. Receiving top notch reviews for fading “age spots” and improving skins texture, Lumixyl is gentle on your skin while turn back the hands of time.

My dad recently started a new job and has been asking for a good treatment for age spots and helping give his skin a little boost. I can’t wait to give him Lumixyl’s new kit to jump start his New Year with a “bright” new look.

Lumixyl Topical Brightening Sytem

Lumixyl™ is a revolutionary peptide technology developed by researchers at Stanford University to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including age and sun spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and photodamage. The LUMIXYL Brightening System is a revolutionary multi-faceted system that dramatically improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation tolerably and without the side effects associated with prescription Hydroquinone or retinoids.

An innovation in skin brightening technology, the four products in the Lumixyl Brightening System work synergistically to target existing hyperpigmentation and to prevent its recurrence. For most patients these formulations can eliminate the need to use hydroquinone or its bi-products, which are controversial due to their potential side effects. Lumixyl products are proven to be powerful but gentle on skin.

The 4 step system offers a complete approach to brightening that is sustainable, effective and more tolerable than competitive brightening systems that contain hydroquinone. The Lumixyl Topical Brightening System builds on the four products including Active-Prep Cleanser, the Topical Brightening Creme, GlycoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion, and Moisture-Lock Sunscreen SPF 30. The products are ideal for all skin types.

$60-$270
