When it comes to anti-aging, we’re often overwhelmed. We know that sunscreen is non-negotiable and that smoking isn’t cool, but with the selection of peels, moisturizers, exfoliators and serums flooding the marketplace we’re in need of some simple navigation. Luckily, L’Oréal Paris simplifies the process. From its new line, Advanced Revitalift Cream Cleanser and Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate, we’re asked to do two simple things—cleanse and moisturize.
You won’t need a lot of this super creamy cleanser, because it foams easily. After a quick rinse, your skin doesn’t feel tight but is left slightly dewy, prepped and ready for the serum.
After very diligent use (and a thorough examination) our skin felt a heck of a lot smoother to the touch. The tone had evened out, and it wasn’t oily or dry—it was just right. We’ve even skipped wearing foundation for a whole week. It looks like we’re onboard.

As summer sneaks away from us, we’re left wondering what we’ll rely on for curl boosting, now that the humidity is gone. While summer does tend to melt away our creamy blushes and lipsticks, it’s fairly reliable for the curly sisters among us who’ve adopted a wash-and-go morning routine.
But AG’s re:coil has our backs this fall. The collection of Curl Activating Shampoo, Conditioner and Curl-Activating Balm enhances and maintains our wavy locks. The formula is so lightweight that even our finest-haired friends can partake. For maximum curls, we suggest going the whole nine yards, and using the curl-enhancing balm on damp hair after a good shampoo and conditioning.
Use the balm sparingly, as a little bit goes a long way.

Degree Clinical Deodorant is the Cadillac of deodorants. Not only does it prevent dryness and perspiration for extended periods of time, we’re talking more than a day – including showering, but it also doesn’t irritate delicate skin.
Unlike many of its predecessors in the same category, this one doesn’t wake you up at 4 a.m. with its itch-inducing formula. It seriously keeps you dry throughout the day and night. Apply it before bedtime, to clean skin, as protection against the next day’s stress-inducing presentation at work. Now there is one less thing to worry your pretty little head over.

Some of us have a nervous tick. Some of us (we’re in this camp) have a compulsive habit of applying lip gloss, balm or ‘stick on an hourly, 30-minute, nearly-every-ten-second basis. The only issue with this habit is that the need doesn’t always strike us in the most desirable environments, lighting wise, so we’re left to own devices to avoid messy finales.
Thankfully Quo has wisened up, so we don’t have to, and created Night Light Lip Gloss. Equipped with a surprisingly bright light and shiny mirror, this is sure to make an impact on the club circuit. Available in four very shimmery shades: Park Spark, Prince Charming, Kew Gardens Apricot and Big Ben Blush.
