We love testing out the latest stuff from the beauty world, so here’s the skinny on the new product that have come across FPD’s desk as of late.
Garnier Olia: the latest launch in hair color from the megabrand, Olia offers an aromatic, delicious scent akin to other Garnier haircare products, an unusual for the home haircolor market, as well as an oil-based product that comes in a plethora of natural and vibrant hues (24 to be exact). The 60% oil formulation includes sunflower, passionflower, and camellia oils to enrich and restore great color. I went to the product launch and experienced a demo of the product, learning that Olia is great as it won’t stain the skin around the hairline and contains no ammonia so it won’t damage or strip the hair shaft. Olia launches in January 2013 for only $9.99 at mass, food, and drug retailers nationwide.
Dove ‘s New Body Washes: Now containing, Glycinate, an ingredient used in luxury facial care products, Dove has created a new line composed of its mildest formula, ever. The recently introduced NutriumMoisture technology gives you an extra benefit by further replenishing the skin’s much needed nutrients alongside exacting, deep moisturizing components. You can now find the entire line of body washes, from Seasonal (Winter Care) and Pampering (Purely Pampering Coconut Milk with Jasmine Petals) to Core Body Washes (Gentle Exfoliating, Sensitive Skin, etc) with the new formulation. I tested the Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash, and let me tell you — silk skin, non-drying, no reactions or breakouts or dryness whatsoever. Dove has been the DiNardo family soap for as long as I could talk (literally), so I’m thrilled to see the brand evolve in this further caring-for-your-skin direction. (Dove’s new Body Washes retail from $4.99-$6.99, depending on which size/oz bottle you select)
StriVectin-TL™ 360 Tightening Eye Serum and Tightening Body Cream: If you’re worried about the signs of aging (aren’t well all?), we’ve got a product line for you! If you’ve never tried StriVectin before, coming on board with their two latest product could be a great time to start! Featuring a special peptide combination of protein tighteners, botanical tensors, and our the brand’s patented NIA-114™ (niacin) molecule, skin gets a boost with some fortification that helps to lift, tighten, firm, and contour.
The tightening eye serum is specially targeted for the ultra delicate and sensitive eye area, and features a metal tip applicator to cool and massage the surrounding eye areas. It earns its name for its 360 degree capability of being used in a full circle around the eye, including the under eye, eyelids, inside corner, and outer wings of the eye area. The Body Cream, on the other hand, can be generously spread over a wide area and comes in a rich, hydrating formula that works to strengthen firm, and tone the skin, all the while improving the texture. (the StriVectin-TL™ Tightening Body Cream retails for $59, and 360 Tightening Eye Serum is $69)
