Fall Beauty Gizmos and Fab Make-Up
LightStim for WrinklesOne of our favorite beauty gadgets this year has to be the LightStim, based on the theory of using light therapy to stimulate and increase production of collagen and elastin.
Just like going to the doctors' office except a helluva lot cheaper. For the full article click here.
Lux Skin care with Bioactive Compounds
Until now, most people hadn't heard of UNT skincare, unless they picked it up on a swing through Taiwan. If Taiwan isn't on your itinerary, you can still pick up the entire line on the internet. Quickly becoming the largest cosmeceutical brand on the internet, the line is known for using bioactive compounds from pharmaceutical plants in France, Germany Japan, Switzerland and the U.S.
We liked ALL the products, from the cleansing and moisturizing lotions, to the specialist creams such as the depigmenting, firming, and of course, the anti-aging. The core product is something called Prodige, which they claim works on a cellular layer to “wake up” your skin stem cells to get those cells regenerating. The key apparently is the extracts from rare apple stem cells that act as anti-oxidants.
Another popular product is REVERSIANCE, which, as the name suggests, reverses some of the signs of aging by activating and elevating collagen synthesis.
Savy shoppers will appreciate all the promotions such as the one going on now Double Indulgence package where you get an extra $25 of product for every $100 splurged. And you don't have to go to Taiwan to get it, either.
Haute Eye Palette
NYX, known for their professional make-up, has a new, must-have HauteJersey palette for fall. Don't lose that summer look, but keep it glowing with one of the four bronzers in the kit, add duo glosses for a shiny pout, 24 shadows for those "come hither" eyes, and of course, don't forget the blush.
All the colors work beautifully together and you can't beat the fun, sassy leopard skin package, cute enough to carry around on its own.
$25 at NYX Cosmetics.
