Kelly Heads UP! Highlighting Kit- $49 at www.kellyvangogh.com
BREAKTHROUGH: Watch highlights as they develop, and stop when you achieve the color you want!
Created by celebrity colorist, Kelly Van Gogh, this goof-proof at home highlight kit guarantees perfect application and a flawless finish with professional-grade tools and a breakthrough formula. You can actually watch your hair color transform as the product works- and then when the desired shade is reached, just spray on Kelly’s deactivator and voila- your highlights are done! And one shade fits all- so no confusion in picking the right box either!
BREAKTHROUGH: Polymer technology means t
hat on wet hair it is a smoothing gel, on dry hair, malleable pomade!
This breakthrough formula allows you to completely change your look whenever you want- mid-day, mid-party, whatever- with help from malleable styling polymers. When hair is wet, it works as a gel to give style and definition- and then, when hair is dry, apply as needed to create piecey textured styles- the exact same formula now acts like a wax. The perfect product for day to night style transformations.
Vaseline Sheer Infusion- $6.25 (6.8 oz) at drugstores nationwide
BREAKTHROUGH: New technology penetrates 3 levels of the skin- so moisture never evaporates!
Proven to deliver twice as much moisture into the skin as other leading lotions- in a much lighter formula- the secret of this new drugstore superstar is in the Stratys-3 complex, which repairs cells at all three layers of the skin so the moisture lasts and you don’t need to re-apply.
Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting Duo- $40 atwww.qvc.com
BREAKTHROUGH: A dry powder but looks like a dewy lotion, and doesn’t rub off!
Much less pricey than a trip to the Bahamas- this giant tub of “frosting” leaves the skin looking dewy and bronzed- which is unusual for a powder formula like this. And it doesn’t rub off- so no need to worry about leaving tell-tale stains on your clothes- your glow isn’t going anywhere. T
BREAKTHROUGH: Chic pebbles soaked in proven sleep-inducing scent lull you to sleep!
Sleep is so important- for your skin and for your health- esp. around the stressful holidays when social wear and tear wreaks havoc on the body that only sleep can save. This is a total must-have, especially for frequent travelers. Natural ‘rocks’ of acacia tree sap are drenched in cedrus and lavender oils that slowly diffuse into the air and create a relaxing ambiance. Ingredients include cedrus tree oil from the Atlas Mountains, sweet Florida orange oil and Bulgarian lavender oil help to promote relaxation and encourage sleep. And the beautiful rocks themselves are much more pleasant the morning after than an Ambien hangover!
