What's new this week,guys?We've had a busy week here at Glamour HQ—ourwebsitegot a fancy new makeover,theMarch issue,完整的全新的看,started arriving in mailboxes across the country,and over on 威廉希尔备用网址fashion,weannouncedthat Louise Roe has been named Glamour's 威廉希尔备用网址Fashion Editor-At-Large!Plus,I got off the redeye from LA (more on that later) Tuesday morning.Whew.Big week.
So while last week,I was all aboutsuper-beautiful new williamhill388beauty products,this week,all I want are great products that work—comforting,luxurious creams and potions that I really want to put all over my face/body because they are awesome and practical and yummy.
Let's kick off my picks of the week with this super-scrumptiousSuki Exfoliate Foaming Body Cleanser,$33—doesn't it look so gooey and wonderful?The reason I love this product is not just because it smells like scrubby heaven (gingery,spicy,and citrus-verbena-y),but also because it'sfoaming.God knows I love an oily scrub as much as the next girl,but sometimes I don't need to slip-n-slide all over my bathtub—and a foaming scrub helps me get my skin-sloughing on and get out of the shower in one piece,and quickly.Those Suki folks are pretty smart like that.
So how about this: Kiehl's has just released this super-awesomeClearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution,$49.50,which is a hyperpigmentation (that's a fancy word for dark spots—or large freckles) corrector you can use all over your body—including your face.
Now,I'm not going to pretend everyone wasn't already using their dark spot corrector on their chests as well—yes,you're not alone with those sunspots on your decolletage!—but now it's actually sanctioned by the product makers.
This Dark Spot Solution is also unique in that it is the first Activated-C product on the US market—Activated-C is a next-gen Vitamin C derivative that activates on contact,which means the solution doesn't need a bunch of extra ingredients to stabilize it in the bottle or deliver it to your skin.Kiehl's Dark Spot Solution also helps prevent future dark spots by slowing down the production and transfer of melanin and acting as an "anti-cluster" defense on existing dark spots.As for a quick turnaround,the clinical results are very promising—most subjects saw results within two weeks!
Here's a brand-new launch this week that I'm beyond obsessed with—only because,well,we all have to live in this world,so why not try to do our best in terms of recycling and using products made of recycled materials,right?Check out Schick's Xtreme3 Eco,above,which just arrived on store shelves this week (try Walmart if you live near one,I hear they're there first!).
Here's the deal: the handle on the Schick Xtreme3 Eco is 100% made out of recycled plastic and its package is made out of 100% post-consumer paper.It's manufactured and shipped from the company's 99.9% landfill-free HQ in Connecticut.This one type of Schick razor will,according to company estimates,save "over 103,000 pounds of virgin plastic and 15,500 pounds of virgin paper from going to landfills each year."
For years and years,as long as I can remember,one of the hand creams I always hear people raving about is L'Occitane's—just last week,celebrity hairstylistLouise O'Connortold us how she never flies without it!Anyway,for you L'Occitane maniacs out there,check out the company's brand-new limited-edition super-springy scent,Cerisier Princesse.The creams,body washes,balms,and solid perfumes from this range are all fragranced with the delicate scent of Provence's cherry blossoms.
