Finally, I tried the newly introduced REDEFINE ACUTE CARE Skincare for Expression Lines (available starting in 2015). Created by Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields. These tiny patches can be applied anywhere — nasal labial lines, furrowed brows — and are said to “melt into lines and wrinkles for naturally smoother looking skin overnight.” Results are said to, “continue to build over time” and the patches are meant to target “onset smile lines” as well as crow’s feet and lip wrinkles.

Rodan + Fields REVERSE Regimen: Deep Exfoliating Wash, Brightening Toner, Vitamin C/Retinol Complex, Sunscreen

Each ACUTE CARE patch holds more than one hundred microscopic liquid cones that melt into lines and wrinkle for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Taking a page from the high tech world of electronics, ACUTE CARE was created with, “the precision of semiconductor technology utilizing a robotic computerized liquid handling platform.” Through this process, hyaluronic acid and anti-aging peptides create super-potent liquid micro cones that melt into a wrinkle effortlessly and painlessly overnight for visible results as early as the first application.

The benefits of a one-month course of treatment (applying patches three days a week) can last up to 8 additional weeks when used in conjunction with the REDEFINE Regimen. These patches sounded amazing and I was eager to try them. I was only given 3 sets, but I used them as directed on those pesky nasal labial lines. Even after a single use, I saw a difference — lines were diminished and less apparent. I think that consistent use of this product would yield even better results. I know it’s only October, but these are already on my X-Mas wishlist. Are you listening, Santa?AMP_MD_System_main Review, Photos: Rodan + Fields REDEFINE ACUTE CARE Skincare For Expression Lines, Wrinkles, Night Renewing Serum, Micro-Exfoliating Roller

The REDEFINE AMP MD™ System (60 Day Supply, $200) includes the noninvasive AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller and REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. According to the literature, the AMP MD System “utilizes micro-exfoliation roller technology for visibly advanced skin-firming benefits.” Rodan & Fields claims that, “smoother, softer skin can be experienced after just one use” and that the system is, “clinically proven to help skin appear firmer and make lines and wrinkles less noticeable for a more luminous and refined appearance.”

Along with the roller (it looks like a razor, but instead of a blade it has a cylindrical rolling device), there is a cleansing vial and purification tablets to insure that the device will remain hygienic and will not introduce any bacteria to the skin. The roller head is made of plastic and is covered with a prickly surface. I tried it on my skin as directed, rolling it over different areas to achieve maximum stimulation. (Caveats: It cannot be used on the eyes, open wounds or irritated, infected or sensitive skin).

I confess I could not use this product more than 2 or 3 times a week. I found the surface of the roller way too abrasive; it felt like I was rolling tiny metal spikes across my face. Afterwards, my skin felt unpleasantly tingly and raw, like I had windburn. I do like mildly abrasive products, like scrubs and exfoliants, but I found the roller a bit too harsh for my skin. This may be an effective treatment for some women, but not for me because I could not use it for long enough to experience any benefits.

In conjunction with the ACUTE CARE patches, I started my REDEFINE skincare routine. The REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum contains a “potent, proprietary blend of peptides and retinol to visibly improve skin texture and firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.” Retinol, adored by dermatologists for decades, is known to improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of pores. Additionally, it is claimed that “patented time-release technology increases skin’s receptivity throughout the night while reducing potential irritancy.”

I broke open a capsule and used on cleansed skin at night. The product absorbed instantly and in the morning, my skin looked terrific — very fresh, soft and dewy. I have been experimenting with serums and in general, I am a fan. But this one is the best by far! I just love it and have already added it to my must-have list.

Herbal Essecne Campaign 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

Halloween is upon us and that means girls across the country will be unleashing their inner angels, rebels, princesses and pop stars. Herbal Essences encourages girls to explore their many different sides every day, but Halloween is the ultimate time to “Be Everyone You Are.”

Herbal Essences Launches Be Everyone You Are Campaign This Fall With Video Preview!

Herbal Essences knows that your hair an expression of your identity at any given moment, so we’re sharing how to get the looks  from the girls in the Be Everyone You Are campaign. Read on to find out how re-create these hairstyles step-by-step from Herbal EssencesCelebrity Stylist Charles Baker Strahan.

Glam Waves

Herbal Essence Glam Waves trends 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

This look is best for hair that is naturally straighter to wavy.

1. On very wet hair, spray Herbal Essences Set Me Up Spray Gel throughout the hair (on finer textures, try Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Smoothing Mousse).

2. Then, mist hair with the Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection Spray and create a deep side part.

3. Create a section following the side part that starts from the front of the head to the nape of the neck.

4. Then, section into smaller sections to begin blow-drying, clipping each section up and out of the way, starting to work from the nape of the neck upwards. (When blow-drying, you want to remove most of the moisture by blow-drying from above and lightly pull the section down with your hands (for thicker hair, you can use a paddle brush.)

5. Get each section almost completely dry before dropping another section down, working up to save the top for last — this section will dry the quickest and allow you to save your arm strength!

6. Then, take a large barrel curling iron and curl hair in 1-inch sections starting about 3-inches away from the scalp, curling the hair in towards the face. (When you drop the curl, let it rest without touching it to allow it to cool in a natural position.)

7. Once you have curled both sides of the head, lightly mist the Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer over the hair and use a paddle brush to lightly brush straight down to create a smooth wave.

8. Tuck back the section behind your ear (you can even use a bobby pin to hold it in place).

‘70s-Inspired Waves

Herbal Essence 70s Waves best trends photos 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

This look is best for hair that is wavy or slightly curly.

1. On wet hair, mist Tousle Me Softly Spray Gel (for finer hair, use Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing Soufflé).

2. Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the product evenly from root to tip.

3. Create a side part and comb the hair smooth on either side of the part and pin the hair down approximately 1-inch from the part to keep it defined.

4. Then, dry the hair with a diffuser from above, moving it as little as possible to prevent frizz.

5. Remove the hair pins and brush through the hair with a paddle brush to smooth the waves/curls.

6. Mist the hair with Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection spray and set the hair with large hot rollers by smoothing each section towards the face and then rolling it back to set, allowing the hair to cool on the rollers.

7. Once the rollers have cooled, drop them out and mist Herbal Essences Body Envy Hairspray, brushing out the curls away from the face with a paddle brush for a beautiful, ’70s-inspired style.

Voluminous Waves

Herbal Essence Voluminous Waves best trends photos 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

1. Start by misting the NEW! Herbal Essences Tea-Lightfully Clean Blow Dry Prep Mist on damp hair.

2. Then, flip your head upside down and blow hair dry with a paddle brush, pulling the hair from the nape towards the face until hair is almost 90% dry.

3. Then, take a medium-sized round brush and blow-dry hair in the opposite direction of the final flow, smoothing the hair to the ends.

4. Once that section is dry, wrap the hair around the brush as if it were a roller, allowing the hair to cool before releasing the brush and repeating around the head.

5. Once hair is dry, mist NEW! Herbal Essences Body Envy Dry Shampoo at the root to give hair a boost of volume and mist Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Hairspray to lock in the overall style.

Vintage-Inspired Voluminous Updo

Herbal Essence Updo best trends photos 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

A vintage-inspired updo  great on second-day hair.

1. Mist Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo on hair and brush through to give hair a boost of texture.

2. Take half-inch sections around the hairline and clip them out of the way.

3. Mist the interior section with Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer, focusing on the roots.

4. Back-comb half-inch wide sections, moving in a circular motion starting approximately 4-5 inches away from the scalp (the section closest to the crown will get the most back-combing to create the most volume).

5. Mist Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray on a soft bristle brush, smoothing over the top of the hair that was just back-combed.

6. Twist the hair into a bun at the nape of the neck and secure with bobby pins.

7. Then, take the hair from the section you created around the crown and back-comb small sections to create volume around the face, smoothing each into the bun to create the finished look.

8. Mist with Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray to finish.

Sleek Pony

Herbal Essences Sleek Pony best trends photos 5 Halloween HairStyles Inspired By Herbal Essences Be Everyone You Are Campaign! Glam, Voluminous, 70s Waves, Sleek Ponytail, Vintage Updo

1. Smooth NEW! Herbal Essences Moroccan Me a Miracle 7-in-1 Serum through wet hair, concentrating on the ends, to help fight frizz and provide a glossy shine.

2. Then, either let hair air-dry or blow-out smooth before using a flat iron to smooth each section straight.

3. Then, create a deep-side part and smooth hair back into a ponytail, using a hair tie or clear elastic to secure.

4. To smooth any bumps or lumps, spray the side of a tail comb with a mist of Herbal Essences Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray and smooth the bump in towards the ponytail base.

5. Then, take a section from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, pinning it to the base of the ponytail for a polished finish.

Which hair look will you be rocking this Halloween?

The #1 mascara has gotten even better! Great Lash Real Impact! Mascara contains NO harsh ingredients. It’s a new take on a classic with zero artificial waxes! This new formula includes shea butter, candelilla wax; acacia gum provides the thick, creamy texture. I love this formula as it washes off with soap and water easily.

Falsies, Big Eyes Rebel Black Mascara lets you get the big, wide-eyed look in seconds. Two brushes allow you to get maximum length for top and bottom lashes. The big brush is a multidimensional, twisted brush that fans lashes out and up for added drama; the lower brush is tiny, so you can get even the tiniest of lashes.

The Body Shop Review, Before/After Photos: The Body Shop Instablur All-In-One Primer Works Well Alone Or Under Makeup!

When it comes to a game-changing primer, I’ve always been somewhat of a Goldilocks, always searching for a formula that’s just right. In my never-ending search, I’ve found some formulas leave an unwanted residue, while others fade too fast. Yes, I’ve pickily tried lots upon lots of brands, but my quest for the right formula has finally ended once I was introduced to the NEW! Body Shop All-In-One Instablur Makeup Primer.

4 Best Skin-Perfecting Pore-Minimizing Primers: Kiehl’s, Avon, Dr. Jart+, L’Oréal Paris

Unlike the primers of my past, this naturally-based gel (buh-bye gross silicone formulas!) works like a clear putty to blur out facial imperfections fast. And unlike the other brands that just sit on top of my skin, this pore-reducing blend uses Community Fair Trade marula oil to keep your makeup lasting all day long.

Before Review, Before/After Photos: The Body Shop Instablur All-In-One Primer Works Well Alone Or Under Makeup!

Before, no makeup!

Okay, so, here’s me without any makeup. As you can see, I’ve got some spots, unwanted shine and scarring I’d like to cover up. Here’s where this priming baby comes into play: To use, simply apply a small quarter-sized amount of product into your palm and apply to your face.

  After Review, Before/After Photos: The Body Shop Instablur All-In-One Primer Works Well Alone Or Under Makeup!

After, just primer!

Even without makeup, you can see that once applied to the skin, this product works hard to reduce that oily shine that gets in the way of picture-perfect selfies. Making my face a lot more matte, this formula uses spherical light reflecting powders to even hide blemishes that won’t seem to go away.

After, primer & makeup!

Finally, it’s time to see how this primer works when paired with some heavy-duty makeup. Now, I love to load up on BB cream, glow powder and concealer, but I was amazed how this primer made application a cinch. Instead of  just weighing down my skin, this product allows your skin to breathe, no matter how many layers of foundation you have on. Plus, boasting 12-hours of protection, it’s hard not to fall in love with this beauty life saver.
