8 Beauty Products Every Teen Girl Needs — That Won’t Break the Bank | Olivia Busch

After gathering nettles from the meadow, boil them in 3-4 liters of water. Once cooled, wash your hair (no need for shampoo). Our countrys best beauty secret: Dalmatian olive oil. My mother is from a [Croatian] island where olives have been cultivated for centuries, and she believes there isnt anything that olive oil cant cure. We use it all over in our beauty regimeswhen at the beach, we put it on our skin, face, and hair. After 15 minutes we just jump in the Mediterranean and wash off the residue. Voila! There is no better combination for silky skin and healthy hair than olive oil and sea water. Our healthy diet staple: Since we live near the Mediterranean Sea its easy for us to eat fresh fish. We have lots of markets with organic food and lots of Croatians have gardens where we cultivate almost everything. Local tip: We dont have that many problems with the weather.

Sharapova Volleys Into Beauty Products With Equity in Supergoop – Bloomberg

For me, its not about making revenue today or tomorrow, but I believe its a company that started on a really good note and it will continue to grow.

Supergoop focuses on sun protection at the core of its anti-aging skincare products, which Sharapova said shes used for several years while playing in tournaments and spending long hours practicing in the sun in her home state of Florida. Shes won 29 tournaments — including one title at each of the sports four Grand Slams — and more than $27 million in prize money since turning professional at age 14. Seamless Its been a very seamless partnership because I really believe in the brand itself, said Sharapova, who declined to disclose how much shes invested. It started as a sunscreen company as opposed to a makeup company that just incorporated sunscreen products in their collections. Agent Max Eisenbud of IMG Tennis said Sharapova hadnt been a believer in partnering with beauty products in the past because those companies generally require significant time from models and celebrities for promotional campaigns.

Happy Earth Day! 5 Natural Beauty Brands You’ll Actually Want to Use : Daily Beauty Reporter: Daily Beauty Reporter: allure.com

The new wave of green beauty brands is eco-chic at its best: They’re sold at posh boutiques and websites, like Net-A-Porter, with gorgeous packaging, amazing scents, and potent ingredients. In honor of Earth Day, we bring you five luxe skin and hair brands that also happen to be eco-friendly. O&M Original Mineral The hype: The Australian brand makes shampoo, conditioner, and a range of styling products, all formulated without parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, or triclosan. Instead, they incorporate ingredients that are indigenous Down Under, like kakadu plum extract, kelp extract, and lilly pilly fruit extract (that last one is just really fun to say). Our favorite products: Seven Day Miracle, an intensely moisturizing mask; Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray, which is pretty much instant cool-girl hair in a bottle; and Original Detox Shampoo, a deep-cleaning (but nondrying) clarifying shampoo. Juara The hype: The brand’s philosophy is to “fuse the active botanicals of Indonesian herbal recipes with Western science.” That East-meets-West outlook translates to ingredients like tamarind, turmeric, and candlenut oil and cruelty-free products made without sulfates, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, or mineral oil. Our favorite products: Invigorating Coffee Scrub, an intensive, energizing formula (it’s literally crushed-up coffee beans) that gets skin supersoft; and Candlenut Hand & Body Balm, a multitasking moisturizer with an irresistible tropical scent. Rahua The hype: The line of hair products uses Rahua oil, derived from the ungurahua nut, an ingredient that the Quechua-Shuar tribes have harvested in the Amazonian rainforest for generations. The entire range is “free of petro-chemicals,” with organic ingredients certified by the USDA. Our favorite products: Voluminous Spray, a root-boosting thickener; and Finishing Treatment, a styling cream that tames frizz and delivers (silicone-free!) shine.

How to Get Every Last Drop Out of Your Beauty Products | Shine-Beauty – Yahoo Shine

In fact, I’ve been using the same bottle for almost a year now. A little goes a long way and the lotion doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy or sticky. It doesn’t clog your pores and it leaves your face feeling soft and fresh! Not bad for almost 7 bucks! 2. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow: $6.97 This has been my go-to eye shadow for about three years now. At first, due to it’s small size and price, I was a little hesitant because I thought it’d only last a month. Boy, was I wrong! The pigments are so dense and bright that a little goes a long way.

R+Co Hair – New Hair Products

You can then store your lotion in a clean tupperware container. Shampoo: For shampoo or conditioner, you can add a tiny bit of water into your bottle and shake it to get the last bit out, but it will dilute the product of course so this will be your last few uses. If you have a plastic container – cut it! To cover it, use tape to seal. Nail Polish: As you get to the end of a nail polish bottle, it tends to thicken up. To thin it out, use a professional thinner like Seche Restore. If you don’t have that on hand you can also use a little bit of nail polish remover – but use very sparingly. After adding this to the bottle gently roll the bottle back Argan Oil Cream and forth between your hands (shaking it up and down will add air bubbles). Lipstick: When it comes to your favorite lipstick, the best thing to do when you start running down your tube is to melt it down into a palette. Scoop the lipstick out onto a metal spoon, hold it over a candle and let it melt. Then pour it into your palette.

It just sort of happened. There was no real plan that all three of us got together, said Priano, who refers to McLaren as their West Coast connection and European brain. Garren and I have been talking about products for years, and then a third party came in and we thought, What a great idea, this is a dream team for us. The trio refer to themselves as a collectivemuch like Andy Warhols Factorywhere artists of all kinds (hairstylists, photographers, fashion stylists, etc.) can weigh in and contribute to their evolving brand, R+Co (which is short for Rogue and Company), launching next month. In addition to industry insiders, social media will play a huge role in how they continue to evolve the already-extensive range consisting of twenty-three products that are free of most everything, including parabens, sulfates, glutens, petroleum, and other bad-for-the-Earth ingredients. It will be interesting how this line is going to grow, he noted. This is just not Garren, myself, and Howard, its everyone. (Feel free to hit them up on Twitter or Instagram @RogueandCo with your brilliant ideas.) And the packaging is as innovative as their formulas and thought processes. From chandeliers to beach scenes to the New York City skyline, the bottle designs are reflective of the three founding pros eye for aesthetics and time spent on shoots with photographers such as Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, and Irving Penn, as well as supers like Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss. (Garren was responsible for Kloss much-lauded bob and Farrah Fawcetts iconic feathered look.) The photographs [on our labels] tell a story all on their own, noted Priano (not to mention dress up the walls of your shower). Plus, the range features five citrus-based scentsLove Bite, Serious Gaze, Relative Paradise, Dark Waves, and Rosy Eyedthat are guy- and girl-friendly.
