Need it now beauty products that deliver quick results: Perfect hair, plump lips, pretty nails and glowing skin are just a few reasons why this week’s products will make you silly-happy despite the icky weather.
Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Glossy Stain
It may seem a little odd to reach for a shade like Hot Pink when temperatures are in the 30s, but that’s exactly why I’m craving it so much. This particular hot pink is more of a berry pink, an intense shade of richly pigmented color that lasts up to 12 hours. The company refers to the “Sexy Boost Blend” that delivers a pout-enhancing effect with kiss-proof wear. And yes, the result is indeed a full and voluptuous pout.
Milani Nail Lacquer
To go with my pink lips, Milani has a nice assortment of new nail hues out for spring and I jumped the gun and grabbed the bottle of Splendid Strawberry when three of my gel manicured nails peeled off. Nothing says “I’m seriously fearless” like dropping an Easter Egg pink on top of three nails resting next to two nails donning fire engine red.
Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum
Applied to the famous tresses of Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Sophia Vergara and Kelly Ripa to name just a few, this little gem has been a celebrity favorite since Oscar started using it on his most famous clients.
There’s quite literally nothing on the market like Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum, for there’s no hair serum that eliminates the frizzies and fuzzies that also has this delicious and intoxicating scent of pure Jasmine.
In addition to providing heat protection for curling, straightening, hair drying and eliminating fly-aways, this Jasmine serum has light reflecting properties to make hair silky and shiny, like the virgin hair you had as a child.
This is one of those can’t-live-without products you also don’t leave home without when you travel. Just apply a dime-sized amount to the palm of your hand and rub through hand and fingertips (even in between fingers) and comb using your fingers and palms through wet hair to apply.
Embrace Spray by erbaviva
Even if you can’t exactly be in the best place, you can at least think you are. With the right scent, that is. One spritz or two of Embrace spray by erbaviva and the essential oils of jasmine and grapefruit turn your space from ordinary to magic.
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask
Even the wisest soothsayers can’t find the perfect mask for every type of skin; it truly takes trial and error. Sensitive skin like mine requires special attention, and that’s where Burt’s Bees comes in, every time. The Clary Sage in this mask provides immediate intense hydration to help skin retain moisture, soften fine lines and depuff all over. I apply a thick layer, let it sit for ten minutes, then tissue off before rinsing with warm water. Anything left over can soak right in.
