Pink or white, grapefruit makes for a tasty morning wake-me-up as well as a familiar fat burner for the calorie conscious. But did you know that this bountiful citrus fruit is also a veritable beauty bonanza? Full of vitamin C, it can help ramp up collagen production to create a fuller, more youthful complexion. Grapefruit is also loaded with citric acid, which gives it its signature tangy taste, and is also a great skin exfoliator. Many people credit grapefruit extract for reducing cellulite and leaving skin soft. Oils from the grapefruit have a soothing effect, which is why we see it as a common ingredient in lotions, scrubs and creams.

CLINIQUE GIVES YOUR LIDS A SURGE OF COLOR

PRODUCT: Clinic Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad

If you're looking for a perfect combination of shades that work alone or in tandem, Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad is just the ticket. I have the Pink Chocolate color palette and love the way these shades look both together and separately. The highlight color works great when swept over the light brown shade, and I absolutely adore the pink sparkly shade blended with the other shadows or on its own. I like that the shadows are matte, meaning they stick well onto skin and are not easily worn off.

The colors are neutral enough that you can wear them during the day and not feel too “done up” yet, with a heavier application, they can look gorgeous as a smoky eye done right at nighttime.

So no longer fear dreaded raccoon eyes… the Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad is great to add deep color to your peepers without making an overstatement.

The Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad can be purchased at Sephora stores and online at sephora.com for $25.50.

SOMETHING TO BREW ABOUT

Posted by 01.11.12

During the cold winter months, there’s nothing better than curling up with a cup of tea. Be it green, black, peppermint, or chamomile, tea is soothing to your soul AND your skin. Its antioxidants flush out toxins from the skin and ease puffiness, while helping to counteract environmental pollutants such as UV exposure and cigarette smoke that can prematurely age and wrinkle your skin. January is National Hot Tea Month, and a good time to add tea not only to your morning routine but to your beauty repertoire as well. So brew up a cup and add these tea-infused products to your beauty stash to reap all the benefits.

A MATCHA MADE IN HEAVEN

SUAVE DRY SHAMPOO SAVES TIME AND CASH

PRODUCT: SUAVE DRY SHAMPOO SPRAY

The idea of washing my hair every day makes me want to cry. Honestly, nothing sounds worse. That's why I'm thanking my lucky stars for Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray. Who wants to deal with the hassle of blow drying, straightening, and perfecting every strand of hair every single day?

No matter what kind of hair you have, styling is undoubtedly time-consuming. Most of us barely have time to stop and think in the mornings, let alone time to create gorgeous works of art on our frazzled heads. A few years ago, this little phenomenon called dry shampoo entered my consciousness. Suave's Dry Shampoo is like a miracle worker. You just spray or rub it on dry hair, and suddenly all the grease and oil disappears and smooth, pretty locks emerge. It’s perfect for after the gym, before a night out, or anytime in between.

The Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray has mineral clay which binds to hair to refresh and lift it. Just a quick spray on top of the head is all you need, and suddenly drab strands become fab tresses. It smells peachy and leaves my hair looking freshly washed, even if it’s not.

The best part about Suave’s Dry Shampoo might just be the price. A 5 oz. bottle can be bought at drugstore.com for just $3.49. So step away from the shower and put down the blow dryer, and thank me later!
