John Masters Organics is one of the world’s pioneering eco-conscious beauty brands. Employing organic ingredients to create chemical- and synthetic-free products, the line is jam-packed with nourishing treatments for the hair, skin, and body. The brand’s Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil ($24.39) is made with 14 organic essential oils and plants that work harmoniously to deeply moisturize even the driest skins. With colder weather on the horizon, now is the right time to stock up on treatments that will eliminate those dry patches right away—and this one is a longtime, proven favorite that’s both gentle and effective.

Mud masks are nothing new, but GLAMGLOW has completely revived the market with its collection of advanced treatments. SuperMud Clearing Treatment ($62.99) is one of the brand’s bestsellers—and with good reason. The potent mask combats everything from acne and black heads to ingrown hairs and unsightly razor bumps. Especially effective on oily and combination skin types, SuperMud gives your skin that pore-free look you’ve always envisioned yet never quite were able to achieve.

It could be considered one of the most visibly effective products out there. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel ($108.54) is a two-step treatment system that exfoliates skin and reduces signs of damage, including dark spots, redness, and fine lines and wrinkles. It can even be used on discoloration—with religious use, you’ll notice a serious improvement. Don’t be surprised if you’re able to go makeup-free after a while!

Foundation is a godsend, but wasting foundation is also a sad reality. With the advent of BeautyBlender ($16.99), all of that changed instantly. The sponge is designed to impart streak- and waste-free application of makeup, from primer to foundation, with ease. Somehow complexions look smoother and more flawless than ever! BeautyBlender is especially helpful when it comes to applying makeup to those hard-to-reach spots, like the inner corners of the eyes and nose. You’ll never use a foundation brush again.

Doesn’t everyone’s skin deserve a little TLC? The Clarisonic Mia 2 ($135.99) is one of the world’s most beloved beauty tools—and for good reason. It’s a powerful cleanser that gently removes dirt, oil, and debris (in just about a minute!) and sloughs away pore-clogging impurities. Your skin will feel instantly smoother than it would if you used a traditional cleanser. Finish up with a hydrating moisturizer or serum and you’ll notice a marked improvement in your skin’s appearance within weeks.

 

We’re sad to bid farewell to summer—but we’re super excited about our End of Summer Sale! It begins Saturday, August 27th. It’s a great time to stock up on your favorites at theBeautyPlace.com.

The Ultimate Evening Beauty Routine

Nighttime is the right time to add a few key beauty products to your routine. While we love the shimmery shadows, colorful lip glosses, and brilliant blushes that bring our daytime regimens to life, it’s what happens at night that makes the biggest difference in our skin’s condition.04ce89131d05804b71d38687e4209625

 

That’s because the skin repairs itself overnight, and increased regeneration and renewal mean you’ll wake up to a brighter, healthier looking complexion. You can ramp up this process and give your skin an even greater boost by adding a few key overnight products to your routine. Here are a few we love.

 

Dermalogica Age Smart Overnight Repair Serum ($41.99) is the stuff you’d dream about if you weren’t slathering it onto your skin before catching a few winks. It’s packed with nourishing argan and rose oils that revive tired skin, stimulate cell turnover, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

 

SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight ($41.99) could be the BFF your dry skin has been searching for this entire time. Smooth it onto skin after cleansing for best results: you’ll reap the benefits of its 10% hydroxy acid, which lightly exfoliates away dead skin while leaving behind a softer, smoother finish.

 

Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment ($16.99) is a must if your main concern is persistent acne. It’s lightweight enough to use regularly, and it’s packed with extracts of cucumber, green tea, and lavender, which work together to soothe irritation and minimize redness. Over time, you’ll see fewer blemishes and ruddy areas will appear calmer and feel smoother.

 

Dr. Brandt Glow Overnight Resurfacing Serum ($51.89) is one of the most powerful anti-aging treatments available. It contains time-released retinol, a potent ingredient that is known for its anti-aging properties. It also helps reverse the development of dark spots, sloughs away dead skin cells, and smoothes out rough areas in need of a little extra TLC.

Fall Preview: The Beauty Loot You Need for the Season

It’s that time of year again. Though we hate to think about it, soon those 90+ temperatures will be a distant memory and flip flops will be replaced by UGGS. To that we say…well, ugh. The best way to deal with this seasonal transition is by investing in some new beauty loot. After all, fall means darker hues, more dramatic looks, and different trends to embrace. Here’s what we’re loving for the upcoming season, all courtesy of the editors at TheBeautyPlace.com.

The 1980s Are Back

You thought you left big hair and blue eye shadow wayyyy in the past, didn’t you? Fashion has other ideas, though, as the fall 2016 runway models proved as they rocked everything from turquoise blue eyeliner to fuchsia lips. Make the look your own with TIGICandy Fixation Lipgloss in Glaze Haze ($10.99). It’s a juicy purple hue that’s right in line with autumn’s affiliation with all things aubergine.

 

 

 

 

Smoky Eyes for Days

Smoky Eyes for Days

Fall is the best time of year to rock a smoky eye. Whether it’s for a party or even for the office, the Jane Iredale In the Blink of a Smoky Eye Kit ($40) gives you plenty of options and shades to create the ultimate glamorous eye. Hang on to it for winter, too—you’ll love how well it pairs with a brilliant ruby lip during the holiday season.

Crazy Outrageous Lashes

 

Some of 2016’s most memorable looks take their inspiration from past decades. Case in point: the highly amplified eyelashes seen on Nina Ricci’s runway. The look is intense, and even with a low-key lip you’ll pull off that vampy, dramatic style with ease. Try bareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara in Petite Intense Black ($16.49); for best results, use an eyelash curler to give your lashes some shape, then follow with two coats of mascara.

 

Shine On in Metallics

 

Metallic hues never lose their luster, but fall is the perfect time to unapologetically up your glam factor. Dust Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust in Silver 24K (10.99) onto your eyelids, cheekbones, or even décolleté for a dose of sexy shimmer. If you want to wear this during the day, use a light hand to add some sparkle to your eyelids; at night, apply it wet for maximum color payoff.

 

Snow White

 

Edgy runway models sported eyebrows dusted in snow white pencil—but that’s clearly not everyday appropriate for most of us. Still, you can rock a little white in your everyday look by lining your underyes with Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil in White/Pink ($11.99). This will instantly open up your eyes, brighten up your whole look, and give you a wide-awake appearance—even if you’re running on empty.

Get the Look: How to Achieve Sexy Tousled Hair

Do you ever stop in your tracks when you see a woman with an absolutely glorious mane? I know I do—especially when that hair is casually tousled to perfection. It’s that look that’s so undone and so unfussy that somehow it just seems like the style to have. Do you have what it takes to pull off that chic, beachy hair? Of course! Here’s how to make that tousled look yours, with a few products from TheBeautyPlace.com.

Start with clean, dry hair. Second-day hair can be easier to style, but if you’re doing that be sure to apply some TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo ($8.99). Just massage it into your roots to soak up excess oil and buildup.

Now it’s time to get started on your glamorous beach style. Apply a spray specifically formulated to give your hair that telltale texture, such as Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray ($14.95). It contains sea salt, which lends your hair that lively look. Simply spritz it on all over and scrunch gently with your fingers. If your hair needs a little extra boost, apply it to your roots and lift your hair slightly to increase volume. (Bonus: You can use this directly on wet hair, too; just spray on and let it air dry!)

 

tigi-foxy-curls

 

Next, bring those waves to life with TIGI Foxy Curls Contour Crème ($11.99). This highly effective emollient does several things at once: it reduces frizz, smoothes wayward strands, resists humidity, and holds your waves in place.

To create beach waves with this product, rub a nickel-sized amount in between your hands. Separate your hair into sections, roping them off piece by piece into tight coils simply by twisting with your hands. While these coils press against your head, use your coated hand to scrunch them firmly. Then release.

And that’s it—no need to finish with hair spray or other styling products, or you risk losing that lovely texture and playful wave that makes this look such a summertime standout. You can find all of the products you need, plus more summer beach finds, at TheBeautyPlace.com.

Dealing with Stubborn Summer Hair

Managing your hair during summer requires a different level of engagement. It’s almost like you have to set aside everything you know about hair care in order to fully deal with what the heat and humidity do to your usually glorious mane. With these game-changing products from TheBeautyPlace.com in your arsenal, though, you can expect a change for the better. Here’s what your hair needs to get through the season in style.

With all the time you’re spending outdoors, in the pool, or at the beach, chances are your hair is taking a beating. Product and chemical buildup from chlorine can leave hair dry, heavy, and dirty. Bio Ionic Agave Healing Oil Clarifying Shampoo ($38.99) is a two-in-one powerhouse: it smoothes hair with hydrating oils while deep cleaning at the roots to rid hair of oil and debris. For best results, use it once or twice a week to keep hair in great condition all summer.

best-split-end-treatments-main

Although your hair may not feel particularly parched during summer, it is susceptible to dryness because of exposure to sunlight and chlorine. A lightweight moisturizer, like Blow Pro Damage Control Daily Repairing Conditioner ($15.97), can make a visible difference. It contains softening shea butter to keep your hair healthy throughout the season, without weighing it down.

 

 

a1f70b9cc9a38642fea8058136f3c905It’s no surprise that your hair gets greasier during summer. Dealing with oily locks is all about the products you use. One of the most effective is Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust ($9.49), which soaks up oil at your roots and simultaneously boosts your hair to deliver some much-needed volume. It’s perfect for those days when you can’t shampoo, but need a quick lift. (Bonus points for the juicy grape fragrance!)

Just as common during summer is frizz. You know the drill—you style your hair at home, love how it looks before you leave, and are appalled when you catch a glimpse of yourself in a shop window five minutes later. Enter Tigi S Factor True Lasting Colour Hair Oil ($19.59). Run this nourishing oil through damp or dry hair to tame your strands, keep pesky flyaways under control, and add a touch of shimmer, too.

 

Whether you’re headed to a poolside barbecue or a wedding, it’s pretty important that your hair looks just as fabulous outside as it does when you leave the house. Enter Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($16.99), a stay-put hairspray that’s easy to comb through and doesn’t leave hair sticky. There’s no lingering residue either, and it’s ideal for keeping your formal updos, bouncy curls, and other looks under control—no matter how hot it may be out there.

Your Skin Has Never Looked So Good

Ah, summer. Your skin glows, your lips sparkle, your cheekbones have that perfect sheen. Let’s face it: Your skin has never looked so good. If you’re still searching for the perfect products to give your complexion that envious summer glow, it’s not too late. TheBeautyPlace.com has everything you need to achieve gorgeous skin this summer.

61280489ba6da720b2f637e9c89e2fa3

It starts with clear, flawless skin—the kind that seems almost lit from within without a stitch of makeup. Glo Therapeutics Clear Complexion Pads ($25.99) are infused with a brightening, breakout-busting, pore-cleansing combination of salicylic and citric acids that give your skin a vibrant look. Make it a regular part of your cleansing routine to keep skin clear and oil-free.

 

peter-thomas-roth-camu-camu-maskOvernight beauty products are definitely a big deal, and with good reason. Your skin does the bulk of its work while you sleep by repairing damage and developing new skin cells. That’s why your skin often looks amazing when you wake up. Do it one better by adding Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($43.99) to your routine. This hydrating treatment is infused with vitamin C-rich camu camu berry. Over time, it may even help prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

The best thing you can do for your skin is protect it from harmful UV rays. During summer, Murad Essential-C Day Moisture ($41.99) is an ideal choice. It’s infused with SPF 30 and potent antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage and boost skin’s radiance.

Foundation can feel heavy during summer, but there are other ways to perk up your skin without weighing down your complexion. Youngblood Lunar Dust in Twilight ($21.99) is a shimmery dusting powder that instantly brightens up your look with no effort. Dust it onto cheekbones and anywhere the sun naturally hits to create a natural glow.

 

jane-iredale-tantasiaThere are safer ways to get a tan than baking in the sunlight for hours. Try Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner andBronzer ($27.99) for a simple, gradual boost of color that develops over a period of days. The result is fresh and vibrant, not orange and unflattering, and it even boasts a refreshing citrus fragrance—the complete antithesis of the usual tanner scent.

 

Now is the perfect time to invest in a few new products to add to your skin care routine! Our Sizzling Summer Skin Sale begins this Saturday, July 16th, only at TheBeautyPlace.com. Stock up on your favorites!

Hair Loss 101: What It Is and How You Can Deal

Dealing with hair loss is stressful. It affects more than just your appearance—it can also do a number on your self-esteem. Whether it’s caused by illness, stress, or heredity, hair loss doesn’t have to a losing battle. There are a number of ways to combat the problem and restore your confidence. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find dozens of items devoted to hair loss, ranging from shampoos to treatments to vitamins. Here are a few that may help you.

GTY_hair_loss_woman_nt_130828_16x9_992

Formulated to boost your hair’s texture while preventing breakage, the Nioxin Hair System Kit 1 ($29.99) is designed for normal to thin-looking hair types. The three-piece kit includes a cleanser that eliminates oil and residue from the scalp; a light conditioner to drench hair with moisture without weighing it down; and a scalp treatment infused with nourishing antioxidants and refreshing peppermint oil. Used as directed, hair feels stronger, looks fuller, and is less prone to everyday bretoppik-fibersakage.

While you wait for your treatment to kick in, you may want to cover your hair loss with a concealer that matches your hair color. Toppik Hair Building Fibers ($32.99) are available in nine different shades, ranging from white and light blonde to auburn and black. Using it is simple—just sprinkle the fibers onto your hair. They’ll adhere to your strands, creating the appearance of natural hair and staying put even in the face of inclement weather. It’s a quick fix that actually makes a difference in just seconds.

Much like the rest of your body, your scalp is at its best when it’s given a good workout. And though it would be a dream to have a personal stylist wash your hair and give you a scalp massage every single day, that’s probably not your reality. You can take care of your scalp yourself, though, with Bosley Follicle Energizer ($13.29). It’s designed to stimulate blood flow to the scalp by exfoliating dead skin, resulting in healthier follicles more likely to produce hair growth.

“You are what you eat” isn’t just an old adage that means nothing. You truly can improve your overall health by controlling the foods and supplements you consume. Lack of copper and selenium can contribute to hair loss, which is where the Bosley Healthy Hair Vitality Supplement ($15.99) comes in. This vitamin contains copper, selenium-rich horsetail, and cysteine. The latter is an amino acid that may encourage healthy hair growth. Bosley suggests taking one to two pills per day; with regular use, you may notice a difference.

revita-eyelash-growthHair loss isn’t limited merely to the strands on your head. If your eyelashes are looking a little sparse, you may benefit from DS Labs Revita.EPS Eyelash Growth Stimulator ($25.99). Made with an amino-rich peptide complex, this serum stimulates hair growth and is easy to apply thanks to its pen-like applicator. Simply apply it to the roots of your lashes, much like you would eyeliner. Used twice a day every day for at least two weeks, you might notice that your lashes look fuller and healthier.

Don’t miss the hair loss product sale at TheBeautyPlace.com, starting this Saturday, July 9th. Stock up on the essentials you need, experiment with a new product, and get ready to see visible, lasting results.

The Beauty Tools You Need Now – and How to Use Them

You know your way around a makeup bag. You can sort your mattes from your satins, your BBs from your CCs, your powders from your creams. Choosing the right products is one thing, but applying them the right way – and with the right brushes and tools – requires another sort of expertise. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find all of the implements you need to enhance your look and apply your makeup. Here, the beauty tools you need now, and how to use them like a pro!Slider_3_-_The_Best_Drugstore_Makeup_Brushes

My life changed when I added a foundation brush to my arsenal. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation – Camouflage Brush ($24.99) is worth every penny. The tapered brush on one end is ideal for applying concealer to those hard-to-reach spots, like the corners of your nose or the inner corners of your eyes. Meanwhilemakeup-brushes, the wider, flat brush offers an exceptional way to apply foundation. For best results, pour makeup onto the back of your hand, dip the brush into your makeup, and apply to face, taking care to blend thoroughly. The end result is exceptionally flawless.

The key to perfect blush application is to choose the right brush. The bareMinerals Handy Buki Brush ($17.89) features a compact handle and a wide body. It’s sized just right for picking up a sufficient amount of color, and simply tapping it onto the apples of your cheeks in a swift motion will result in a fresh, natural glow. (Applied too much blush? Dust some translucent powder onto your cheekbones to dull the color a bit.)

Never underestimate the importance of a lip brush. Though it’s easy enough to slick on your lipstick straight from the tube, using the Glo glo-mienrals-lip-brushMinerals Lip Definer Brush ($14.99) allows for more precise, even application. It also comes in handy if you fill in your lips with pencil first; use the brush to neatly apply color directly on top without missing a spot.

 

 

Where has this been all of our lives? The Tweezerman Power Nail Clipper ($5.99) was designed with convenience in mind. It features a lengthy handle with a sturdy grip, as well as sharp blades to provide a more even cut. Made with stainless steel, it’s the perfect addition to your makeup bag.

It’s one of the biggest beauty faux pas imaginable, yet it’s a crime we continue to commit without fail. Ladies, wash your makeup brushes! Neglecting this simple and very necessary habit will result in grimy brushes coated in makeup, dirt, debris, and oil. Now just imagine running those unkempt brushes on your face every day. Ew, right? The solution: Spritz your brushes with Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser ($13.99). The formula dries quickly and leaves brushes as good as new.
