How do you get rid of dark spots or those discolorations that suddenly show up on your skin? And what about uneven skin tone? Keihl's may have found a solution.
Kiehl's, the premium line of skin-care products, has developed a new product called "Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution," a clear fast-acting serum that features a brand-new Vitamin C derivative,which is said to penetrate deep into the skin to diminish dark spots, prevent new ones from forming, and result in an "overall radiance and youthful clarity. "
Vit C is the new keyword in skin-care and unlike some others that we've tried, Khiel's doesn't have to be mixed before use, but is immediately active when applied to the skin.
We love an new invention.
We've been fans of Gelaskin's bright and quirky gadget skins for some time now, combining tough and glossy materials with all kinds of unique designs. However, at CES this year the company revealed its Hardcase range for iPhone 3, 3G, 4 and 4S devices, which we may just love even more.
As you'd expect the cases are pretty durable while still keeping your device slim and they also manage to cover all of the necessary edges without affecting any of the iPhone's functionality. All of Gelaskin's image library can be added to the Hardcase range now too, so you can choose from beautiful works of art to intricate patterns.
Our favourite? Probably the bright geometric pattern above called Intermezzo, but really we're spoilt for choice!
Check out the full collection at Gelaskins.

I don't know that a Hello Kitty skin on a defibrillator is going to give patients much confidence however.
At CES we see many products that , sadly, never make it to the market place.So we're happy to report that the new Blue Mic line is out now and we had a chance to play with them.
Blue Mic established themselves with the Mikey mic, which was a boon for home recording, and the new Yeti Pro takes it one step further for musicians.The versatile multi-pattern USB mic, is the world’s first ever THX-certified microphone, and features Blue’s premium condenser capsules in a proprietary triple capsule array, hosting four recording patterns (stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional) that give the user incredible versatility to produce studio-quality recordings in a wide range of situations, i.e. vocals, live or event recording, interviews, broadcasts, instruments, bands, etc. ( Yeti Pro can capture digital audio with up to four times the clarity found on CDs. )
Not only is it a high quality mic, but at $250 its affordable to most aspiring artists. The installation couldn't be easier. (If you're a Mac user, GarageBand recognizes it.)
At CES, we saw the next gerneration Blue Microphones, which were impressive. If you're recording music or videos on your iPhone or iPad -and who isn't these days- there's the brand-new Mikey Digital, a plug-and-play external mic for capturing professional-quality audio on iPod touch, iPhone 4/S and iPad with any iOS audio app. Mikey Digital captures stereo recordings with the highest resolution possible on the iOS platform. A multi-input jack for easy plug-in of other sources such as guitars, instruments, handheld mics, and other sources and a USB pass-thru connection for charging in-use, makes Mikey Digital a perfect multifaceted recording interface for a wide range of sources. ($99) It took the 2012 CEA Innovations award winner in portable multimedia accessories.
Blue also showed off Spark Digital, the first studio-grade mic to offer both iPad and USB connectivity. The combination of Spark Digital’s direct connection to iPad, along with numerous available recording apps such as GarageBand, provides the first mobile studio setup for the iPad platform. In addition, Spark Digital offers USB connectivity, delivering studio-quality audio to any computer, laptop or tablet with USB. ($199)
We saw all kinds of weird and wonderful gadgets at CES this year, but it's a shame we didn't get the chance to try out this very cool and very clever Smart Window from Samsung.
It's a window, a computer, a blind, the list really could go on and on...

This clever Recorder Pen concept allows you to take notes and then transfer them to your computer via Bluetooth. We've seen great products from Livescribe before that allow you to take notes and then transfer them electronically, but this is the first time we've seen an idea that utilises Bluetooth. It's a brilliant idea for quick work notes and students who prefer to work with a pen and edit their scribbles later on.

Some would say it's not much of a stretch, but singer Katy Perry is officailly set to become a cartoon, well, a Sims character actually.
Katy signed on to helped develop in-game content and virtual goods for the popular Sims series. The relationship kicks off with a special Collector’s Edition for The Sims 3 "Showtime", launching in March 2012.
The purple/blue/pink-haired singer, who already resembles a very cute Sim, set a record with her Simlish version of her hit ‘Hot and Cold’ featured in The Sims 2 series which is still EA's most popular video to date.
Available for pre-order today, players can make like Katy Perry and try their best at fame in The Sims 3 Showtime Katy Perry Collector’s Edition.( The Collector’s Edition includes The Sims 3 Showtime Expansion pack, plus downloadable content including an Ultimate Stage bonus venue, iconic - think hairstyle, guitar, fashion and staage props -- an exclusive poster. )

At the annual gifting lounge extravaganza (this one sponsored by Live Loyal PR in celebration of the Golden Globes awards) we spotted the "MoFone," a retro handset with an insert for an iPhone. (There's no Bluetooth or even corded functionality here - it's just a holder.)
Designed by LA artist Morrisa Maltz as a piece of art, a buyer for Urban Outfitters happened to see them and now they're selling out.
Are they ridiculous? Yes, but that’s the idea. Many of the retro designs are over-sized and whimsical. All the phones are made by a community of artists which makes the $45 price tag a deal.

Without a breakthrough, must-have product showcasing at CES in Vegas this year, we thought the crowds might be smaller. We were wrong. The Consumer Electronics Association reports that there are over 150,000 attendees this year, and a record 3,100 companies exhibiting.
As always, Apple doesn't join the party, preferring to launch its products at its own convention, but there are plenty of "i" products to see. iBike, iRobot, iDevices, iWish ... (ok, just kidding on that last one.)
IF there is any news this year, it's in the TV world. They're bigger, with better resolution (4K is now the standard to beat) and Samsung showed off a prototype of its high-end "Smart TV line," that it says will allow users to control their sets with voice and motion control and facial-recognition technology.
"For example, users can turn the TV on or off, activate selected apps or search for content in the web browser simply by speaking in any of the 20 to 30 languages that are supported by the technology," a Samsung spokesman said. "With a wave of their hand, they can browse and choose a link or content via the web browser and two unidirectional array microphones recognize voice at an incredibly accurate rate." (A built-in camera in the top-of-theline Smart TV sets recognizes movement.)
Meanwhile, Sharp demonstrated its Aquos Freestyle TVs which are made to be portable. By using a wireless signal the models at the booth were able to happily carry them around and we did find the TV very lightweight. Take it outside for a BBQ or into the kitchen to watch a cooking demo.
Every company is out to beat Apple to their rumored TV launch, but if an iTV does hit the market this year - if history is any indicator - it will probably outstrip everything we saw at CES.
Besides TVs, we saw an iPhone in a fountain, demonstrating a water-proof coating from company Liquipel ; miles of bejeweled iPhone cases, and made friends with iRobot Ava, who roamed the convention floor. Ava has a tablet for a head and from the "neck" down looks like a vacuum cleaner. If we hadn't been so tired, I'm sure we wouldn't have asked it for directions.
