Shop Erno Laszlo skincare here!
Hand held bar soap has had a frowned upon image for some time. It's messy, gunky and causes us to spend more time cleaning the remnants off our shower shelf then paying attention to any difference it's creating in our skin. For many people the idea of a bar soap sitting out in the open air immediately makes us think it's being contaminated and creating a haven for bacteria. It's not a sexy skincare product to begin with but over the years bar soap's bad wrap has gotten better. Especially now as this year marks the 60th anniversary of Erno Laszlo's Deep Sea Mud Cleansing Bar. This momentous occasion calls for a write up in the New York Times since it's stylish debut began at Saks in 1952!
The truth is nowadays choosing soap over a foaming wash or gel isn't going to do your skin any harm, only good. We've been convinced by marketers that it can strip necessary oils and moisture from our skin by affecting the pH level but that is now a thing of the past based on new formulations. One of our favorites is Erno Laszlo's Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar because it serves a dual function by exfoliating as well as cleansing. Therapeutic deep sea mud gently removes impurities, detoxifies and improves circulation while also hydrating and restoring radiance! This is one bar soap you want in your shower or bathroom sink!

Shop By Terry here!
A fire dance of reds, chic dark purples and oxidized dark tones make up the Fall 2012 By Terry Luxuriant Color Collection. Autumn and winter are a time of over-indulging and this range really makes you feel and look decadent. Filled with sultry shades of lipsticks, lacquers and Ombre Blackstars, this is truly a gorgeous range you don't want to miss out on. Buy them all or select your favorites, you can never be disappointed with the luxurious formulations of By Terry:
The velvet textures and melt away formulations of Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow feels like an eye treatment as much as it does an eye color. Tahitian Black Pearl provides a rejuvenating lifting light effect and also smoothes the eyelid. New shades in the Luxuriant collection include Velvet Orchid (deep purple), Midnight Forest (deep leafy bronze), and Beyond Gold (shimmering gold).
Burgandy is going to be a big color trend for Fall 2012 so why not apply that color to your lashes. Part serum, part mascara, the Mascara Terrybly creates big volume and length while also strengthening the lashes from within with its Lumicoat Care Technology. The new Iconic Bordeaux is a rich, wine hue that will enhance your natural eye color.
Nail polish is now known as one of the best accessories you can incorporate into a look so rock Nail Laque Terrybly's Ristretto, my personal favorite in brownish black, Garnet Nectar (purple) and Fire Game in volcanic red.
By Terry's Rouge Terrybly is one of the most luxurious lipsticks I've ever tried. So moisturizing, it literally just glides over lips without drying them out and leaving color remaining in the lip creases. Beautiful shades in the new Fall 2012 Luxuriant Collection include Red Ceremony (mysterious red), Bare Instinct (sexy rosewood) and Carnal Attraction in dark purple.

Whether you want to call it burgundy, bordeaux or a saturated blue-red hybrid, ox-blood hues are trending big time in the beauty and fashion world. One of the best things about this Fall 2012 color trend is that it looks good on just about everybody! Alexander, Rodarte and Acne all had bursts of this reddish brown luxe shade on the runways so we thought we'd include our favorite ox-blood shaded beauty picks just in case you want to rock it on your nails or lips!
La Moss by Butter London is one their most popular shades as well as a staff favorite around the office for it's deep, mysterious hue. Is it black or is it bordeaux? Depending on the light you find yourself in, it can look like a deep wine color that has been marinating for years. Match it up with the La Moss Lippy for an extra oomph. RGB Cosmetics OxBlood Nail Color is another fantastic option for your nails.
For a rich, true blood stained lip we love Ilia Lipstick in Femme Fatale. This organic lipstick combines pure ingredients and a truly moisturizing formulation that leaves lips begging you to come-hither. An irresisistible shade for a woman who wants to remain mysterious. By Terry's Fall 2012 Luxuriant Collection has included a Mascara Terrybly in Iconic Bordeaux to coat lashes in one of falls trendiest shades as well as activating growth!

Shop our selection of Clarisonic hand held devices here!
What we love the most about Clarisonic is that they listen to their customers and launch new products with their suggestions on board. Case in point - the new Clarisonic Aria! The same sonic technology that gives us a 6X deeper cleanse than hands alone is still there, however this time some new features make it even more user friendly.
For one it comes with three speeds allowing you to customize how deep and brisk a cleanse you want. What I'm really excited about is the drying stand. I keep my Clarisonic in the shower and every time I'm done I bring it out and have to wipe it down with a towel. With the drying stand you don't have to worry about 'sham-wowing' the water drops off it, just place on drying stand that also converts back to a charging station! Another great feature is the real time battery life indicator. I don't know about you but I never know when my Clarisonic needs a 'juice' session, it just quits and then I know I need to charge it. With the indicator, we can now forecast when it's time to put it back on the charging station meaning you don't have to worry about missing any deep cleansing sessions. Not only do these features make the Clarisonic Aria well worth it, it's sleek and modern design just make it dang sexy looking!
The Clarisonic Aria was also featured as one of the picks in Allure Magazine's Best of Beauty awards!

Shop T3 Micro haircare products here!
What if the secret to frizz-free, healthy hair wasn't just found in hair styling products and a winning shampoo/conditioner combo but in a shower head? T3 is one of the world's leaders in hair styling tools - from their award winning T3 Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand to the Featherweight hairdryer, this brand is known for break through technologies that simplify the hairstyling process.
Their latest addition, the T3 Source Shower Head utilizes a chemical filtration process known as 'Redox' that transforms high levels of chlorine into harmless elements that are to large to be absorbed by the hair. Just like drinking water, high levels of chlorine can be contraindication and it definitely damages the appearance and health of our hair.
By incorporating this T3 water filter onto your shower head you'll notice a 64% reduction in frizz and a 28% increase in body and shine! I like those numbers.
