Have you heard? BeautyStat.com’ s Ron Robinson was quoted yet again (last mentioned here in Makeup Expiration Dates) in The New York Times this week for their story entitled ‘Promises From The Powder Room.’
The article talks about how powder foundations, pressed powders and the like have revolutionized their formulations to provide age-defying, acne-fighting, light-reflecting and many more positive skincare benefits.

Beauty consumers beware. Flat irons and curling irons can damage hair and cause it to break and fall out if not used carefully. Nothing exemplifies this more than the viral YouTube video of the girl who was demonstrating a new hairstyle when suddenly her hair literally burned off.
BeautyStat’s cosmetic chemist and founder, Ron Robinson, notes that overuse of heat styling tools especially curling irons can cause a lot of damage to the hair. The heat can permanently break the hair bonds which can cause it to literally burn and break …
Peace, love & Jao is my new saying, as I have been obsessed with their product line ever since a dear friend, Karim Orange, introduced me to the brand. I have been using their Hand Refresher ($7.00, $11.00 and $16.00, depending on size) all winter along with their Goe Oil ($40.00), and not only is it a smell I embrace, but the products are paraben-, sulphate-, phthalate-, mineral oil-, silicone- and fragrance-free (of synthetic fragrances that is)!
Please note that there is a scent to the hand sanitizer, as it blends sage, geranium, …
