I have long been a fan of Nexxus hair care. The first time I used Nexxus Humectress Shampoo and Conditioner, I was awed by how quickly my hair sucked up the moisture and how shiny and manageable it was after blow drying. That was many years ago and I have purchased this powerhouse, tried and true duo dozens of times, because it works so well on my thick, slightly wavy hair. Everyday, I also spritz my hair with Nexxus Dualiste Daily Leave-In Conditioning Spray. It replenishes and protects my color but never weighs it down. When I received this email, with some great suggestions for improving the condition of your hair, while you sleep from famed stylist and Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso, I knew I would both try them myself and share them with you.

These days, it seems that anything that can be plucked, ironed or peeled has a Brazilian pre-fix.
Why is that??? Can we please move on to another country if not continent already???
I do love me some Glycolic Acid. Used regularly, it does keep my skin glowing, so whether its pads or peels, some form of glycolic acid is in my repertoire. When I was contacted to try Advanced Home Active's Brazilian Peel , which was rewarded the 2010 Allure Best of Beauty Award, Best Beauty Breakthrough, I leaped to accept. I do use an at home glycolic peel, but it requires 4 steps, cleansing, prepping, applying and neutralizing. The system Brazilian Peel created is tidy, safe and effective; 4 dual chamber syringes, are infused with medical-strength 30% glycolic acid and acai berry (~ola)! on one side, and neutralizing solution on the other, simply apply one syringe as directed, each week for a month. Here's how it works:

I was on a CVS run and remembered how much I liked mascaras with built in primers in the past. Having the freedom to haphazardly dash on the (white) primer, which acts as a first coat, is downright liberating. It also sets the stage nicely for clean looking, non clumpy, long lashes. By sight, I could not find the last one I used, nor could I remember if it was a L'Oreal or Maybelline offering. Oh-tay...moving on. I selected L'Oreal's Double Extend Mascara in Carbon Black. Frankly, there are so many mascaras within the same brand it's getting harder and harder to choose. From a marketing stand point, I am not sure how they are just not cannibalizing their own market share...but I digress. Net net, how did it work???

In my quest to find the best anti-aging skin care for the face and body, I do a lot of tooling around on the Internet. It does frustrate me how neglected I think the body is in terms of affordable, head to toe products that don't just moisturize and smell good, but treat as well. This is how I happened upon Cindy Jackson's website. Cindy is a celebrity in her right...in fact she has her own entry in the Guinness Book of World Records . Do you know why?
