I recently went to the Garnier Open House event to check out their latest line of product offerings, with most of them launching this month. The new hair care, styling, and skin care products each offer something new to the market, for example the Triple Nutrition hair care line includes olive, shea, and avocado oils to provide incredible moisture without weighing hair down. I was particularly interested in The Dryness Reversal Treatment, a three minute conditioner with crushed apricot seed that act as an exfoliant; I never would have thought about applying something of that nature to my hair, and will soon test out the products to see the results. Their new concept of anti-humidity hairsprays is something that rang a chord with me — depending on your hair type and styling requirements, you can choose a hairspray to particularly meet those needs. Although I’ve been pretty happy with my massive bottle of Tresemme, the Volumizing Anti-Humidity Hairspray certainly got my attenion (other options are Full Cotrol, Sleek & Shine, and Flexible Control).
Last, I spoke with dermatologist Dr. Neal Schultz about the lastest skin care offerings, including the Ultra-Lift Pro Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, and Skin Renew Awakening Face Massager Moisturizer with caffeine, Vitamin C, and lycopene. Dr. Schultz confided to me that caffeine is the next big thing in skin care, that produces a stimulating and energizing effect. The roller ball technology is pretty cool, but being the skeptic and germaphobe that I am, I had a quesiton for Dr. Schultz: “Does the facial roller trap bacteria or foster an environment of bacterial growth, due to rubbing the same thing over and over again on one’s face?” The pleasant Dr. Schultz wasn’t annoyed by my question, and said that indeed no, it actually wouldn’t cause any more bacteria than when you dip and redip your fingers into that bottle of moisturizer or night cream that you’ve been using. Good point; now I’ve got one more reason to wash my hands! Keep your eyes out for the products mentioned above, plus several more, hitting shelves this summer.
