Holiday Travel Wellness with CHI

Published on by

It never surprises me when I find a new product on SkinStore that I hadn’t seen before. Recently I found a couple of very useful travel preparedness and wellness items we offer by CHI. Many of us are very familiar with the CHI hair care products, but the CHI product line is versatile in its offerings and all of the products are very useful during the heavy travel season.

If you are traveling this holiday season the CHI Air Home Digital Luggage Scale may be your savior from airport luggage lines and fee’s. It seems that when I am taking a long trip, I pack for months of traveling not the days that I will actually be gone and this leads to a ridiculous degree of over packing. To avoid those irritating overweight luggage fee’s this handy CHI tool is perfect for an at home packing sanity check!

Ok, I’m going to the dark place…hotel stays and germs. Staying in a hotel can be an experience of its own even at the finest of places, or better yet, how about those stays at the in-laws in your husbands room which hasn’t changed since he left? Ok, to be fair perhaps I’m a germaphobe because I can’t stand to touch anything that I didn’t personally Lysol or bleach, but the solution could very well be the CHI Air Life Protable UV-C Light Sanitizing Wand, can I just say AMAZING! I want one now.

Perhaps like me, you are into the whole sanitation thing and when you look at your toothbrush that’s been sitting in or near the bathroom you start to ponder what germs could be on it? CHI has done it again! Yet another fabulous sanitizing tool called the CHI Air Life Portable UV-C Light Counter Toothbrush and Razor Sanitzer. This tool is designed to risk of bacterial infection and with its UV-C germicidal technology is kills 99% of germs in 5 minutes. I can think of many reasons why people would use this tool and am considering that it could be highly effective in environment where bacterial infection risk is critical to promoting a healthful environment and reduced risk of illness. If you just want to sanitize your toothbrush, there is a very travel friendly CHI Air Light UV-C Light Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer that could even make for a nice gift!

The BelleCore HoneyBelle BodyBuffer Kit for Cellulite

Published on by

SkinStore.com is proud to carry the The BelleCore HoneyBelle BodyBuffer Kit! This cutting edge beauty tool is a must have for those health, beauty, and wellness diva’s that simply must have the latest body contouring tool designed specifically to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

According to the BelleCore HoneyBelle BodyBuffer website studies have shown that 70% of users tested “reported an improvement of appearance and 95% noted their legs felt smooth after using the HoneyBelle® bodybuffer”  in just 4 weeks of use. Using the product twice a day as recommended most users felt that there was at least some improvement even during the first week!

This new beauty tool is used on dry, cool, bare skin for 3-5 minutes in targeted areas. While increasing blood flow within the target area users will notice some redness and may experience harmless mild itching, this is normal. In addition, it’s important to note that you must hydrate while using the BelleCore HoneyBelle BodyBuffer because it is also a highly effective exfoliation tool. The BelleCore HoneyBelle BodyBuffer kit comes with a 4oz Luxurious Apres Contouring Cream in addition to two terry cloth bonnets, a terrycloth pad liner, instructional DVD (which I highly recommend you viewing the entire DVD before use!) and a great carrying case for easy transportation.

Overall, this revolutionary tool is a great value for those looking for an at home spa solution to that pesky (and sometimes embarrassing) cellulite.

NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System

Published on by

The microdermabrasion system by NuBrillance is brand new to SkinStore.com, but has been used in doctors’ offices and clinics for many years because of its effectiveness.

The NuBrilliance microdermabrasion system uses gentle crystal free technology to exfoliate and resurface the skin. The diamond tip wand will get rid of dead skin cells while the vacuum suction will help to stimulate collagen production and help to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For people with sensitive skin that cannot use a microdermabrasion system, NuBrillance is a great alternative because it has adjustable settings and does not scratch or irritate the skin.

You can save time and money in the long run by not going to a doctor’s office because you can use the NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System right at home. You can also use this product on other areas that may look dry and dull, like on the hands, arms, legs, and even décolletage. NuBrillance is the first and only at-home micodermabrasion device that uses suction combined with real laser-cut diamonds to promote cell growth and a smoother, more youthful appearance. The NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System will help to address hyper pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and enlarged pores.

All skin types should start out using the system on the lowest setting, then very gradually work their way up to a higher level, making sure to use very light pressure. If you have concerns about using a microdermabrasion system please consult your dermatologist first before beginning any regimen. You should also make sure you are using a daily sunscreen of at least an SPF30 or higher to protect your skin.

New Items at SkinStore.com!

Published on by

The seasons are changing, and we’re happy to embrace the cooler weather and all of the wonderful things that come with it. Some of our favorite autumn classics include pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, cozy wool coats, and chilly football games. But our most favorite things about the new season are the new beauty products and trends, of course! Switching seasons also means switching skin care routines and incorporating products that will get us through the cold months ahead. Fall is also a great time to preview holiday gift ideas! Here are some of our newest SkinStore.com launches that are quickly becoming staff and customer favorites.

Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Deep Pore Cleansing in Blue. While you may go into lazy hibernation mode this fall, you shouldn’t let your skin do the same. Your face and body are in need of deep cleansing and exfoliation, and Clarisonic makes it fun and easy. The PLUS system works wonders for the face and the body with its four speed settings, and the new Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head gets those stubborn trouble areas clean and clear with the push of a button.

ARCONA White Ice will hydrate your skin through the icy cool weather to come, and because it’s now available in a jumbo size you won’t have to worry about running out too soon. This lightweight gel will moisturize deep within the dermis, won’t clog pores, but will protect your skin against environmental assault.

Even though it’ll be chilly out it doesn’t mean you have to hide your neck, your neck will get all of the tender loving care it deserves with StriVectin TL Neck Firming Cream so you’ll want to show off your new swan-like self. The TL Neck Firming Cream uses breakthrough niacin powered technology to visibly restore firmness, shape, and contour while providing an immediate tightening effect.

If you’re looking for a total regimen overhaul then look no further, because our newest addition is sure to be one of our best as Bioelements joins the SkinStore.com family. Since the early 90’s Bioelements products have been dominating the spa world with their innovative formulas that provide clinical-results. Founded by one of the first ever licensed estheticians the Bioelements brand brings innovative skincare technology and the spa experience straight to your home.

Cool weather doesn’t mean skipping sunscreen OR deodorant, so make sure to stock up on both, because getting a sunburn in the middle of fall is completely possible, and unfortunately smelling bad is too. We’re loving the new LaVanilla deodorants because they’re free of all the bad stuff like petrochemicals, phthalates, proplyne glycols, and synthetic dyes. They are chockfull of powerful antioxidants, essential oils, and soothing hydrators.

One of our worst things about cool weather is chapped, red, dry skin. We’re thankful for ATOAPLM! The original ATOPALM Intensive Moisturizing Cream has a cult following, and the new ATOPALM 130+ Concentrated Intensive Cream will surely be a hit. Enriched with olive oil, grape seed oil, and vitamin E, this parabens-free multi lamellar emulsion formula mimics the structure of the skin lipids, healing to restore the skin’s barrier function. It’s also great for rosacea, and for razor burn.

Dr.Perricone, a pioneer in the skincare industry is always coming up with the latest and greatest. Perricone MD Cold Plasma products were a hot hit during the summer time, and they’ll surely sell like hotcakes in the fall. In time for fall Perricone MD Cold Plasma had a growth spurt and is now available in a 2 oz super-size! The best thing is that it’s a $300 value for only $229!

Revaleskin is also taking their line to new heights with three new products. To rid of hyperpigmentation induced by too much fun in the sun, the Illuminesse Brightening Complex will help to lighten dark spots while brightening the skin with a potent coffeeberry complex. Revaleskin Skin Firming Serum helps increase resistance to stress and environmental aggressors. And the new RevaleSkin Elette 4% Creamy Wash rinses away dirt and residue while killing p.acne bacteria and zapping zits in a jiffy.

Save 20% at SkinStore.com for a limited time! More details.

Evaluate Your Tools

Published on by

To get a flawless application of cosmetics it is very important to have the clean and proper tools necessary. If any of your makeup brushes look frayed, worn down or broken it’s time to replace them. It is easier to replace brushes in multiples since they come at a better value than when purchased individually. If your tools are damaged in any way, it will affect the application techniques and the final look. Get the brush essentials needed by picking up a simple brush set like Bare Minerals Jet Set Mini Brush Collection or the Stila Brush Set.
