Friday, March 7th, 2008

No matter if you spend $200 at the salon on highlights or use a $10 box of home colourant – fading is still a reality and a nightmare.

Here are a selection of products designed to maintain and extend colour between treatments and to provide nourishment and vitamins to enhance natural and infused hair colour.

Redken Color Extend

Redken’s Interbond Conditioning System and 360 Protective Complex deliver UV filters, anti-oxidant vitamin E, conditioning silicone, ion blockers, and ceramide to help shield, stabilize and secure colour vibrancy.

I soften, I massage, I deeply cleanse

Have you seen the Dove SkinVitalizer? It’s a light-weight facial tool that grips a Dove cleansing pad and cleans your face with gentle vibrations.

The cleansing pads easily affix to the massager – just add a little water and away you go! There are two sides to the pad – one is for exfoliating and the other for gentle cleansing. Because this tool is waterproof, you can use it in the shower or at the sink – whatever is convenient.

I liked the feel of the cleansing pad vibrating on my face and my skin did feel smoother, refreshed and clean. The tool was a little noisy when it vibrated which did not bother me but might bug some people.

I would prefer a rotating brush and using my own cleanser rather than the replaceable pads. I am not 100% sure how deep cleaning this tool is and I can see a brush really getting to the deep down dirt. I am also very nervous of using new cleansers on my skin, so would prefer to use my own fav product.

Purchasing replacement pads on an ongoing basis may become a little costly, but on the upside you won’t need to buy two separate skincare products as you get a cleanser and an exfoliator all in one.

You may have heard rumours that this item has being recalled – here are the facts from Dove:

“The Dove SkinVitalizer that was sold during January and February 2006 was recalled. The cleansing pillows on this device could loosen or dislodge during use and then the SkinVitalizer could cause minor scratches to the skin. This device had hooks which grabbed the pillow and attached it to the device. If you have the original SkinVitalizer, you should stop using the product and contact Unilever at (800) 761-3683. A new, redesigned Dove SkinVitalizer started selling in stores in January 2007.

What is the difference between the first SkinVitalizer and the new one on the market now? The first SkinVitalizer had mechanical hooks which grabbed the pillow and attached it to the device. The new and improved SkinVitalizer uses a soft velcro-like material to attach the pillows onto the device.

I would recommend you try this item. It is inexpensive and Dove is a quality brand that can be trusted. I would love to hear what your thoughts are on this item. Let me know!

The SkinVitalizer starter packs comes with:
Facial Cleansing Massager
6 Dove Facial Cleansing Pillows (3.1″ x 2.2″ / 7.8cm x 5.5cm)
1 – AA Battery

Available from your local drugstore.
$11.99 USD $13.00 CAD
