BEAUTY BUYS FOR JANUARY 2012

NYC...

Always on the look out for inexpensive beauty buys---two of our fav brands out there (besides OLAY)---Physicians Formula and Garnier-have new products out on the market-aimed at evening up skin tones.








and Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector moisturizer ($16.99)-that seem to have enough anti-oxidant ingredients so as to be helpful-with continued use-for the laser phobic. We haven't tried but have ten happy with past offerings from these companies...

Also-as mass merchandisers---these products are probably good for all skin tones too-something that lasers that even up skin pigments/get rid of the dark spots-including acne's telltale signs...are not. Still, want instant gratification????-read our thoughts on Cutera's Limelight™ IPL treatment.

Scent wise-winter seems to require heavier fragrances...but we think that can be overwhelming-especially if stuck in an elevator with said offender.



The Body Shop-a value driven destination for hair/skin/make-up products---has fragrance collections too---with authentic scented cleansing lather rich, soap free body wash gels, soothing moisturizers-body lotions, and easily portable eau de toilette and eau de parfum sprays.






New-the White Musk® Libertine group...which has a slight spicy floral aroma...that's subtle. Priced from $15-$24---with online specials seemingly continuous. An inexpensive way to smell great-with silky smooth skin too.
