Latest and Greatest Spa Products
It’s hard enough keeping up with the latest cell phones and mp3 players, much less trying to figure out the endless stream of new beauty products and spa treatments claiming miracle results. Here’s where we let you in on our favorite new finds—be it a high-tech new machine or must-have new cream—and break down how, and why, they work.
As the weather gets cooler, it’s important to change your skincare regime to fit the change in seasons. When doing so, don’t forget your lips: This sensitive, thin-skinned area can become easily dehydrated, turning flaky and dry with the drop in humidity levels. (And when you’re not drinking enough water.) To help keep puckers soft and smooth, Einstein Lip Theory has developed two excellent balms that work together for all-day results. Cooling Relief instantly adds moisture, protects lips and gives a little shine, while refreshing lips with a tingly burst of mint and vanilla extracts. Use it under your favorite lipstick to keep skin supple during the day.
Slightly thicker, the Hydrating Cream should be used at bedtime to help increase cellular turnover, hydration and elasticity. Using nutrients and anti-oxidants high in Vitamins A, C and E, the Cream also works to diminish fine lines, and protects lips from future damage.
Packaged in sleek little pots, the Einstein power-duo was developed by Benjamin Einstein, one of the co-creators of the Hard Candy makeup line. Inspired by his mother’s eternal quest for the perfect lip balm, Einstein lived up to his name by creating these cutting-edge, high-performance treatments, which use top-notch ingredients to tackle all aspects of lip care. In doing so, he made his mom’s “dream” lip product—and ours, too. Einstein Lip Theory is available at Barneys New York, Ulta, C.O. Bigelow, Bath & Body Works and liptheory.com; balms are $6 each.
