The Kardashian sisters’ newest beauty venture revealed…

  • Post a comment

As if their forays into make-up, perfume and self-tanning products weren’t already enough, the Kardashian sisters are now planning to launch a hair tool and styling range.

Created in collaboration with hair care company Farouk Systems, the line will consist of three hair tools — a flat iron, blow-dryer and a three-in-one tool, all priced at US$89.99 (which is about AUD$97) — and seven styling products priced from US$14 to US$17 (about AUD$15 – AUD$19): a blow-dry cream, a volume mousse, a dry shampoo, a dry conditioner, a firm hair spray, a curl cream and a dry oil.

Speaking to Women’s Wear Daily about the venture, Kim Kardashian revealed how she uses hair care products to get an impressive four days of wear between washes.

“I start out the first day with a clean blowout. The second day, I put in dry shampoo, which adds texture. Then, the third day, I sleek it and I straighten it, and then, the fourth day, I put our oil in it, and I make it a really sleek look. I might do a ponytail or a sleek bun. That’s my hair plan, and then I start over,” she said.

Joking that she uses the range’s nourishing Black Seed Dry Oil on her daughter, North West, the reality star stressed the value of the products, saying they’ll be “salon-quality products at an affordable price”.

Set to launch next US spring (so around March 2015), the line is expected to be available in the States in salons and on mass. We can’t wait to see whether they’ll give us a magnificent mane like Kim’s and when they’ll be available in Australia at the same time!

Grooming mistakes your guy is making

  • Post a comment

We’re probably all a little guilty of assuming that shaving comes second nature to men. The fact is, much like with a woman’s skincare regimen, if they’re not taught properly in the beginning, odds are they’ve acquired some bad habits along the way.

Recently, we sent resident beautyheaven boy Andy along to a Gillette event, where he was lucky enough to go back to basics and learn how to shave all over again, thanks to the help of the Gillette 'Faceology' gentleman's guide to shaving system.



“As shaving isn't exactly the kind of thing you learn about in school and is generally just a self-taught process from an early age, personally I had formed a few bad habits that added unnecessary irritation to my skin during the shaving process. The Gillette experience identified these and did a great job of explaining the art and science behind the perfect shave - certainly something that every guy should be taught at least once before they take a sharp blade to their face on a daily basis,” says Andy.

Here are the big four bad shaving habits Andy had picked up over the years – and tips on how to banish them.

1) Not softening my beard

“I had never, ever done this, but it definitely pays to soften up the bristles of your beard beforehand using a hot damp towel over your whole face for 60 seconds before shaving.”

bh tip: It also pays to start any shave with a product that can help to prep your skin and the hairs. We love Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard, as it prepares skin for shaving by softening the beard in order to minimise razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

2) Not understanding the way my beard grows

“Everyone has a unique pattern of growth that's different on each side of the face. Understanding the directions that hair grows in allows us to ensure we shave in the right direction at all times.”

bh tip: for the best in after-shave care, you really can’t go past nourishing options like Imperial Leather No. 1 Original Aftershave Lotion and NIVEA Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm, which both provide the calming care a guys skin so needs post-shave.


3) Applying too much pressure with the razor

“You actually don't need to apply any force; just running the razor down your face is all that's required.  Before I would literally press the shaver really hard and drag it down my face.”

Our razor of choice? Gillette Fusion ProGlide™ Manual, as it features advanced blade technology with a five-blade shaving surface on the front and back of a single shaving cartridge to help reduce pressure for a more comfortable shave.

4) Not shaving my lip right

“When shaving the upper lip, the best way to get a close shave is to shave across the face horizontally over the lips.  Sounds like it would cut your lips, but it's actually fine.”

bh tip: If you’re after a luxurious shave cream, you can’t go past L'Occitane Cade Shaving Cream. Upon contact with your skin it turns into a luxurious mousse and contains shea butter and moisturising glycerine.

How many bad habits is your guy guilty of?

Getting flawless skin has never been so easy

  • Post a comment

Three years ago, the secret to getting flawless-looking skin was – quite literally – bottled and sold to the masses.

Adored by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, her sister Pippa Middleton, and the flawless Emma Watson, Kate Winslet, and Lupita Nyong’o, Lancôme Visionnaire became a staple for women around the world to achieve gorgeous, clear skin.

The original Lancôme Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector formulation was a one-of-a-kind product with 12 years of research behind it and more than 100 international awards to its name. The key behind its success was the inclusion of molecules called jasmonates in the formula, which work to correct skin imperfections.

Today, the Lancôme Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector has been reborn and reformulated with an exclusive double-jasmonate complex, which is even more effective in repairing the skin while stimulating cell renewal. Along with this advanced technology, the serum also features lightweight nourishing and hydrating oils, and optical agents for an instant skin-perfecting effect.

After application, the serum sinks evenly into the skin for a smooth finish, and leaves a blurring effect, thanks to the inclusion of silica. Over time, the serum helps to improve the appearance of your skin by smoothing wrinkles and refining texture, shrinking pores and reducing imperfections.
This reformulated wonder gets results fast. After using just one bottle, an impressive 79 per cent of women said wrinkles were smoothed, 83 per cent said pores were less visible, 79 per cent said imperfections were reduced, and 84 per cent said their  skin’s texture was refined.

Lancôme Visionnaire’s next-generation serum ticks all the boxes for helping women achieve a flawless-looking complexion - and hey, if it’s good enough for Kate…
