On any given weekday or week night, instead of flipping through the television channels to find out what the latest chick flick is on the television, I turn on the Home Shopping Network (HSN). For me, HSN is more than shopping from the comfort of your couch, it’s smart shopping. Many of the brands showcased are those you’ll be proud to pick up at fine department stores and Sephora, and at unbelievable prices.
We are, after all, living in the age of value. So, with HSN offering the latest launches from brands like Carol’s Daughter, Ahava, KeSARI and Shiseido, what’s a girl to do but just go on a shopping spree?
Here are some of our favorite Spring/Summer 2011 Beauty Buys from HSN:
AHAVA ‘s line is based on the resources of the Dead Sea region, and just bursting with plants, minerals and elements. We love our Time to Clear Mud Mask.
Lisa Price’s incredible and empowering journey has led to the creation of her Monoi haircare line, which reduces hair breakage and smells like Tahiti. Her new Be Loved collection features a Body Cleansing Gel, Frappe Body Lotion, Dry Oil Mist and Room Spray, and comes to HSN on August 5th.
Beauty Bioscience’s Jamie O’Banion really impressed me with the RetinoSyn-45 system, which is an anti-aging two serum at a time treatment (also professionally termed “Bi-Layer” Titration Therapy) launching on HSN in June. It works at night to do a complete overhaul of the skin in 45 days, and has two steps in each two-week phase. It’s also recommended for acne sufferers.
Benefit’s The Porefessional is one of all time favorites. It’s a silky, lightweight and translucent primer that temporarily helps minimize and diffuse the appearance of pores. A true two in one.
We’ve written before about Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend perfume and love the idea and scent, with its top notes of dark plum and myrrh and base notes of skin musk, golden amber and vanilla woods. HSN features the Pulse Point Rollerball.
Deborah Lippmann‘s “Polished” Five-Piece set appears on HSN on July 5th, and retails for $59. It includes three of the top selling colors and two treatments including Happy Birthday and Waking up in Vegas.
The GLO Brilliant’s Personal Teeth Whitening Device looks like an iPod, but whitens with more efficiency than a French maid. The entire device and G-Vials retail for $320.
Our love for pretty packaging knows no bounds, and KeSARI had us at hello. Derived from a Hindi word, which means “saffron,” this brand balances East and West. We love the Indian Oil Hair Serum,which reduces frizz and increases elasticity.
After meeting Cathy Kangas at the event, we learned more about PRAI Beauty’s portfolio, which launches in July on HSN. From the PRAImordial Weightless Gravity G-Force Creme to the Ageless Sculptesse for Body creme, the line is all about anti-aging using ingredients from the Earth and Mars.
