Double Duty: Multiple Uses for Your Beauty Products

These days, we spend the majority of our time finding ways to save time. The fact is that time-saving solutions are a hot commodity. What better way to make the most of your early mornings – and maybe catch a few extra zzz’s – by using beauty products that pull double duty? Here are several products that work overtime, offering multiple uses and shaving minutes off your daily, often hectic routine.

In a pinch, lipstick can double as blush – and a cream blush can also fill in for your lipstick, as needed. Then there are the genius products actually formulated to do both, like the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink ($17.79). Producing a soft, girlish flush, the flattering hue adds a kiss of color to your pout and brightens up even the most tired complexions in an instant. The creamy, water-resistant, long-lasting formula is a dream.jane-iredale-lip-cheek-stain

 

You reach for your shaving cream mid-shower, only to discover there’s barely a drop left. We’ve all been there – and we’ve all felt that desperately uncomfortable itch that occurs when we substitute soap for shaving cream. A better solution? Grab your hair conditioner. It’s rich, thick, and moisturizing, and it provides just the right slip to glide your razor over. Give TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Conditioner ($9.99) a try for its hydrating prowess. It’s as good to your skin as it is to your hair!

Just as valuable as time are options. We love a product that doesn’t stop at just one – it goes above and beyond, offering a plethora of possibilities. The CHI Nano Digital Flat Iron ($99.98) is a genius example. Not only does it straighten locks to perfection, but it also serves as a curling iron. With a quick flick of your wrist, you can use the iron to create lush, voluminous curls or even tight ringlets.

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or motivation to address every single inch of your face. Simplify your routine with a product like Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Gleam ($20.99). A multipurpose product that serves as a blush and highlighter, it instantly brightens up a sallow complexion, adds color to cheeks and even contours your face to add dimension.glo-minerals-shimmer-brick

 

Who hasn’t overslept and taken a frantic shower – or worse, skipped that morning shower altogether – just to get to the office in time? If you can squeeze in a quick rinse, make use of Anthony Logistics’ Invigorating Rush Hair and Body Wash ($24.99). It’s designed to clean and condition your hair and your skin, so you’re left completely soft from head to toe – without the need to use a whole bunch of products to achieve the same effect.097735d6e58f15edb101e22edd367bd2

The Dos and Don’ts of Hair Removal

Ah, womanhood. It’s great and all, but if there’s just one tiny niggling complaint we have, it’s that hair removal can be such a beast. And because summer is fast approaching, that means it’s time to pay a little more attention to our body hair and develop a game plan. Get ready to bare some skin with these helpful dos and don’ts that will make removing that hair a breeze.

Do baby your skin. Nothing says “Hey, I just waxed my upper lip!” like a patch of bright red skin below your nose. The fact is that waxing is irritating, and thus your skin requires a little TLC post-treatment. Get yourself involved with Anthony Logistics’ Cool Fix Rollerball Lip and Brow Formula ($14.29). This innovative product contains soothing Mediacalm complex, exfoliating salicylic acid, anti-inflammatory caffeine, and free radical-busting grape seed extract. They work together to instantly relax freshly waxed skin, preventing both discomfort and telltale redness.

Don’t wax right before a special event. Your skin needs to breathe, so the last thing you want to do is apply makeup over it.

Do be prepared for an ingrown hair or two. It’s not a given that it will occur, of course, but who wants to be stuck with a larger-than-life bump that seems to be getting bigger by the minute? Ingrown hairs can occur if you wax too soon after your last treatment, if you shave against the grain, or if you neglect to exfoliate. Invest in a jar of Bliss Ingrown Hair Eliminating Pads ($28.99) and, guaranteed, those pesky painful ingrowns will be a thing of the past. This potent, saturated pad gently exfoliates skin with a combination of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids, leaving skin soft and smooth.

Don’t expose your skin to anything that has the potential to irritate it right after waxing, such as sunlight, self-tanning booths, hot tubs, or swimming pools.

thumb-products-that-will-let-you-give-up-shaving-foreverDo remember to moisturize, especially after you shave your legs. Ever notice that they feel a little tight and itchy after you step out of the shower? This is usually due to hot water irritating your skin or a razor blade that isn’t fresh. A product like DermOrganic Hand & Body Moisture Lotion ($18.69) is ideal for soothing skin. It’s rich in Moroccan argan extract and helps protect the skin’s natural barrier.

Don’t apply a heavily scented moisturizer or fragrance to freshly waxed skin. Any type of alcohol can trigger a jolt of discomfort that will linger far longer than you’d like. Just say no, ladies.

Mascara Reveal: Top Picks & Tips

It’s been argued that the single most important item in your makeup bag is mascara. Even if your top choice is lipstick (because, really, who can live without either of these things?), it’s hard to argue the quintessential status of the skinny, little tube with a wire brush hidden inside!
There are literally thousands of mascara choices in today’s marketplace and prices can vary from dirt cheap to competitive with the price of gold. Once you’ve picked the perfect mascara for your two eyes (and your budget), the perfect application seals the deal.

Great Choice! Your mascara is on the way…but your next question: How do I apply mascara like a pro? Don’t worry. We’ve got that covered too! Use these tips to apply your mascara flawlessly and fabulously:
1. A Clean Start: Start with clean, dry, make-up free lashes. We can’t get enough of this makeup remover. Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt Cleanser.

2. Curl your lashes: A good eyelash curler is a must-have to get the look! Start at the base of you lashes near the root and hold firmly in place for 10-20 seconds.

3. Load Up: Don’t push and pull the brush! This will force air inside the tube and cause your mascara to dry up quickly. Instead swirl the brush around the tube to get makeup on the brush. Be sure to wipe off any excess from the brush before starting to apply.

4. Bottom First: If you start with the bottom of your lashes, they’re more likely to get the attention they deserve! Turn your brush vertically and apply from root to end.

5. Slowly, slowly…get every lash: start at the base of your top lashes and move the brush (ever so softly) from side to side so the wires of the brush separate your lashes. Repeat until desired thickness is achieved, coating both sides. Keep a eyelash comb handy to correct any clumps.
A few more mascara application hacks:
• Dusting baby powder over your lashes between the first and second coats will add depth.
• Heat up your lash curler with a blow dryer to get longer lasting curls.
• Use a spoon (curve side facing outward) to protect skin on lid or below eye from smudges.
You’ve got all the tips you need to apply your mascara like a pro and The Beauty Place has so many amazing mascara options, there’s surely one perfect for you. Do you have any great mascara tips to share? We’d love to hear all about it!

Prepare Your Winter Survival Kit

Winter means humidity won’t kill our sleek styles but it also means hotter showers that can dry our skin and leave us in need of a skin-quencher.

No worries, we’ve assembled the best products that you can use this winter to target dry skin and reduce hair static.

Hands

We can’t stress enough how crucial it is to moisturize your hands. Crucial to our everyday lives, they are always exposed to being damaged and dry whether it be at work with the constant typing and paperwork, overusing hand sanitizer, and exposure to heat and cold. An intense conditioning treatment like the Dermalogica Hand & Nail Treatment is a fast-absorbing treatment that not only hydrates hands, but also maintains nails. Minimize nail peeling and protect skin from environmental damage.

HAND TREATMENT

Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Hand & Nail Treatment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lips

Don’t leave forget about your pout either.During those windy, cold days, lips can experience chapping and dryness. Coat on lip balm to keep the delicate lip skin smooth and hydrated during the arctic chill. This Bombshell Lip Balm leaves lips with a natural, rosy glow while protecting and healing.

LIP BALM

Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die for Pink Lip Balm

 

 

 

 

 

 

Face

Winter’s roughness can make our complexion dull. Regain skin’s radiance with an at-home treatment mask. Dr Brandt’s Oxygen Facial helps re-energize stressed skin. With the wind and cold, that’s reason enough to use it. Use it once a week to help skin absorb oxygen better and to release any trapped toxins.

FACIAL MASK

Dr Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At night is when your body repairs itself. Take advantage of night-time moisturizers to help replenish skin’s lost moisture throughout the day. This nourishing lotion helps promote healthy cell turnover and increases skin’s elasticity.

NIGHT CREAM

Murad Age Reform Perfecting Night Cream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair

It’s the season for hats and scarves and beanies which also means static in our hair. Combat frizziness with healing oil treatments. Not only will it help hair look luscious and healthy, but it will help keep hair static free. Macadamia’s oil treatment makes hair smooth and silky and designed for dry hair. Use it on any hair style during the winter months to help rejuvenate hair.
