I get how hard it can be sometimes to escape from life’s daily’s stresses and indulge in a spa treatment, so I’m thrilled to announce that omni-channel wellness and beauty services are here from The Red Door by Elizabeth Arden! The brand has gone through a bit of a refresh lately, which means you’ll be seeing renovated spaces at your favorite locations including a new treatment menu, featuring quick beauty touch-ups, a massage membership, and therapeutic and cosmeceutical-grade services.
The three biggest additions, however, include The Red Door at Work, which offers nails, hair styling and massage in corporate offices in NYC, Chicago, Boston, and Washington D.C., Events by The Red Door (in NYC, Boston, Chicago), for small group parties to larger corporate events at its locations or in private event spaces, and finally, The Red Door Academy, which has advanced training and education so that your Red Door experience is across-the-board seamless! With 28 day and spa resorts locations across the country, there’s sure to be a location, service provider, and experience that you fall in love wit this fall. See TheRedDoor.com for pricing, location, and service details, as well as to book your appointment.
There’s quite a hustle and bustle over at the IT Cosmetics headquarters right now, with very good reason: the fall 2016 collection was just released, the company was acquired this summer by L’Oreal, and it launched at Sephora to much fan fair with a combo of 20 of its best-selling and exclusive products! Wowee! Some of my absolute favorites include the Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer, Anti-Aging Armour™ Super Smart Skin-Perfecting Beauty Fluid SPF 50+, Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm and Superhero™ Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara.
The brand does a lot of things right when it comes to skincare and color cosmetics and its business model (cruelty-free, clincally-tested, free of parabens, sulfates phthalates), but I’ve go to play favorites and say that the skincare and brushes take the cake for me, and now I can refill my stash even easier than before with the expansion into Sephora!
Speaking of the mega beauty retailer, Sephora has now expanded into Teen Beauty Services with its 90-minute Teen Makeup class, the 12th course added in its series of classes, including Contour & Highlight ( I took this one!), False Lashes, Brow Shaping, and Essential Eyeliner. It starts with the most crucial part, the fundamentals of good skincare with Skincare IQ to figure out the best products for each skin type, followed by how to prep, blend, and expertly apply the sheer coverage of BB and CC creams, finishing with light definition on the lips, cheeks, and eyes. There’s not much I’d like to relive from my teen years, but the change to take this class is one that I certainly would have loved to jump om! Visit Sephora.com to locate all of the Beauty Class options, and book online at a store near you.
The Cambridge Satchel Company’s has a new collaboration with Brazilian brand Melissa, who specializes in all things…jelly. The brand tends to be my summer shoe -go-to, and I’m excited about the Melissa + The Cambridge Satchel Company teamup. The brand has created a new version of the Cambridge Satchel Company’s classic 11 inch satchel, made now with an adjustable strap and stud closure, plus, thanks to Melissa’s signature fabrication, is fully waterproof. Available in three colors of holographic, black and red, they are up for purchase now for $140 each at CambridgeSatchel.com and ShopMelissa.com.
If you’re a fan of Soap & Glory‘s bodacious, generously sized skincare and cosmetics products, then you’re most likely well-aware of the brand’s overall wondrous affordability and best-selling product, The Righteous Butter. Comprised of ultra-moisturizing shea butter and aloe vera, the “buttery” stuff is rich, with great “meltability” at the same time, enveloped in the brand’s signature Original Pink™ fragrance. For a short period of time, the formula is enhanced with pearlescent shimmer, mica powders and actual diamond dust for a glistening, radiant, and hydrated skin effect! Pick up your tub of The Righteous Butter: Diamond Edition available for just $15, starting October 1st for a limited time at Ulta and Ulta.com.
