REDKEN Expands Diamond Oil Haircare Line


After the much success of the Redken Diamond Oil (have you tried it? We’re obsessed!), they expanded the line late last year to now include a Diamond Oil Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask!

If the packaging isn’t enough to attract you to these sparkling beauties, the results to your hair will!  The shampoo and conditioner look like they are made with tiny pieces of shimmering diamonds submersed in the formula.  And ok, while it might not be real diamonds, it could just be the next best thing!  The Diamond Oil Haircare line contains a blend of natural apricot, camelina and coriander oils which penetrate to the core and from the inside out to not only strengthens your hair (3X stronger), it also adds shine (by 2X)!

Throughout the bitter winter months my hair usually takes quite a beating (static, dry, dull, ugh), but with three weeks of Redken’s Sparkling Oil Complex nourishing it those days seem far behind me.  The IPN technology (included in the shampoo, conditioner, and mask) work together in the wet and dry phases to repair hair. Here’s the breakdown of how it works:

  • KeralinkTM – a specialized protein co-polymer that acts in the wet phase by binding moisture to hair while strengthening deep within the hair fiber.
  • Amino Acids and Protein – act together in the dry phase creating an ionic bond with hair’s keratin to rebuild surface protection and help enhance hair’s texture and shine.

I wash my hair 2-3 times a week and in the in-between phases used the Shatterproof Shine Intense on the ends of my hair to keep them nourished.  I also recently dyed the tips of my hair so the contrast from before and after has been dramatic.  Where my hair felt stiff and damaged before it now feels soft and manageable.  Just add 2-3 drops in the palm of your had, rub together to warm and distribute to the tips of your hair (or where ever the driest area is for you).  Added bonus: It smells great too.

Nuance Salma Hayek Launches New Spring Collection Exclusive to CVS!

NuanceSalma Hayek has been a favorite of mine for years.  Not only has she entertained us as a film actress, director, producer, activist, mother, (and much, much, more), but she is also a natural beauty! So when Nuance Salma Hayek (her hair, skin, and cosmetics line) launched in August 2011, we knew that if it gives us skin like Selma, we’re in!

La Lingerie Noire – Chantelle Reveals the Fall 2013 Collection


Sexy, sexy, sexy is how I felt after getting a peak at Chantelle’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection which is inspired by global travels.  On top of scoping out this lust worthy lingerie, I also met with their team who took me through the La Lingerie Noire exhibit covering the classic significance of black lingerie through the years which showcased amazing vintage and archived pieces flown in from Paris.
