Happy 2013! January 1st or 2nd or 3rd ... Magically marks the time each year when we have the chance to mentally reset and make a fresh start, which usually includes a few 'self' promises. Whether you're working toward bat-worthy lashes or a better physique, I've rounded up the best new products to make your "get gorgeous" resolutions a reality!
If you have a different resolution in mind, tell me about it or share it with your fave in-store Beauty Advisor. We're all here to help make 2013 your most beautiful year yet. And don't forget to check out our Beauty Scene Events running through the 4th. You'll find out about all the latest products and can score some great freebies too!
Resolution: Younger-looking Skin
Estee Lauder Advanced Time Zone Collection is exactly how my skin is starting off the New Year. These amazing age-reversing moisturizers help you look younger in just 5 days!!! How you ask? With a superhero type complex that helps your skin boost its own production of line-plumping, mega-moisturizing hyaluronic acid.
And just in case you have oily skin concerns, there's an oil-free Hydrating Gel version that you'll absolutely love!
Resolution: Longer Lashes
Whether you long for lush lashes (like me) or fuller brows, there's finally serious help that comes without the need for a doctors note - Prevage Clinical Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum. Approved for use along your upper & lower lash lines, this tiny wonder promises lashes that look longer, fuller, and healthier in just 2 weeks. And if you suffer from sparse brows, this serum can also help fill in your arches.
Just so you know, I've been using this for about a month now, and in my opinion, it's life- or lash-changing! I'm thrilled with the results I've seen so far. And because I'm extremely cautious about everything I put around my eyes, I'm happy to share that this serum is Prostogladin free. That means you don't have to worry about it darkening your eyelids or causing iris pigmentation like some other well-loved lash lengtheners.
Resolution: Better Body
This is probably the resolution that tops everyone's list, and from ab-enhancing to body contouring, bliss has all the body-con product bases covered! First up, the new FatGirlSixPack is a targeted tummy-toning gel. With a powerful blend of six active ingredients and a nubby applicator to massage in the formula, it helps to tighten and firm the look of your core. And while it unfortunately can't take the place of crunches or miraculously turn soft into sculpted, it's the best new addition to any stomach-strengthening workout!
If cellulite is the cause of your body woes, allow me to introduce the high-powered bliss FatGirlSlim Lean Machine. With vacuum-assisted massage, this hand-held slimming power tool was designed to help give your thighs, abs, and booty a sleeker-looking silhouette. Used with FatGirlSlim Firming Cream, the Lean Machine massages orange-peel areas, visibly reducing the appearance of cellulite while smoothing and toning the skin's surface for curves that look more contoured.
Resolution: Healthy Hair
Rather than repeating how much I love the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i , I'll let you read my musings here. The giveaway has unfortunately come and gone, but if luxurious locks are one of your wishes for 2013, this hair drying duo is definitely worth the investment!
