Five really cool beauty products
Every now and then I come across a beauty product that absolutely floors me. Well, let’s be honest, most beauty products impress me, but there are some that have something so different and so unique about them that all I can do is stop and exclaim, “That.is.SO.cool!” (I know, totally dorky, right?)
And because you’re all certifiable beauty nuts too and are likely to share my enthusiasm, I thought I’d share with you the products that had me as giddy as a schoolgirl on a sugar high.
#1: Lady Gaga Fame
We all know Gaga is a bit more than a just little eccentric. She’s basically the definition of kooky. So it wasn’t really surprising when she announced her perfume would contain fragrance notes of blood and semen (don’t worry, it doesn’t really – just the very normal notes of belladonna, incense, apricot, saffron, honey, tiger orichidea, and jasmine sambac). But what really struck me about the singer’s perfume was the colour. It’s black in the bottle. And then sprays on absolutely clear. It changes colour the minute it’s airborne. How freaking cool is that?!
#2: Jane Iredale Magic Mitt™
If I had to tell you that you could remove your make-up without a cleanser or make-up remover, would you believe me? I didn’t think you would. But it is possible. All you need is this wondrous little mitt and some warm water and your skin is as good as cleansed. And before you start thinking it’s just a gimmick, it works. Trust me. I’m the queen of skepticism and I was amazed by how well this mitt cleaned my skin.
#3: bhave™ fresh ends
Some people aren’t fans of products in jars. It usually means using your fingers to get the product out, which can be quite unhygienic. Well, wouldn’t you know the clever clogs at bhave™ have the solution. The nifty little jar for this treatment features a flat, white cover over the lip of the jar (so it seems closed when you’ve already taken off the lid). In the middle of the lid is a small hole, so when you push the white cover down, product comes out through the hole. Now your product is sitting above the white cover - all you have to do is wipe it off. Colour me flabbergasted by the sheer brilliance of this.
#4: La Prairie Cellular Power Infusion
What can I say? Science wows me. And the science involved in using this product has me downright astounded. This is how it works: take the vial, twist the silver area at the bottom, and BOOM! The ingredients have been activated and the once-clear liquid is now a purple-blue colour. If that’s not magic, then I don’t know what is.
#5: Skin Juice Smudge Budge Eye Make-up Remover, $34, 02 4960 8980
The gentle and hydrating eye make-up remover is a balm. Yes, A BALM! Practically unheard of in the eye make-up remover world. Made from organic plant butters, it erases even the most stubborn make-up without irritating or pulling the skin. Just warm a small amount in your fingers, massage it lightly around your eyes, remove it with facial pads or a wash cloth, and finish off with a splash of warm water. Viola, clean and make-up-free eyes!
