Open Letter to Neutrogena Regarding Neutrogena Wave Ads

Dear Neutrogena,

It really disappoints me when a great company, whose products target the teen and 20s/30s demographic of women, use sexual innuendo to sell product. I really thought we were more intelligent than that, but obviously you don't think we are.

Let's recap how you are advertising your latest product, the Neutrogena Wave, on several blogs and websites shall we?

The flash advertisement starts off showing the Wave vibrating with the words "Turn me on" next to it. Followed by several colors of Waves vibrating, which they tend to look like a hand held ...um...vibrator? Words like "deep" and "power" are used in the advertisement and in the final frame is a picture of a teenage girl holding it to her face.

If I remember correctly RejuvaWand, another skin care product whose design had the flaw of also looking similar to a sex toy, tried desperately to get people to focus on what their product does rather than market it for what it looked like....you seem to be doing the opposite. Also, Vanessa Hudgens is being used in your commercials for this? Isn't she the teen Disney star who had the nude sex pics of herself floating around? Coincidence?

Neutrogena to me has always been a company based on values and principals, especially considering your target market is young girls. So please tell me why it is now that you have chosen to go down the path of selling tongue-in-cheek sexually-based ads for Neutrogena Wave.

Most upsetting to me? You are selling these ads through a network I am a part of and I'll have no choice but to potentially have them displayed on my blogs and I'll have to apologize to any of my readers who are also offended.

Sadly disappointed,
Shannon

Redken's Tips and Tricks for Blow-Drying Like a Pro

Many women pay top dollar to get an ultra-sleek salon blow-out. A great salon blow-out creates luxurious foundation for any style and adds polish to hair, which seems impossible to replicate at home. But impossible it is not! With these easy expert tips and the right products, you’ll be blow-drying like a (Redken) pro in no time!

TOOLS YOU’LL NEED:

* Wide-tooth comb to evenly disperse product and untangle hair
* Round medium-sized boar bristle brush or nylon/boar bristle combination brush to help blow-dry sections.
* Blow-dryer with an ionic feature to seal in the cuticle and lock in moisture for high sheen (not recommended for fine hair). Get one that has at least 2 heat settings: high heat for initial drying, low heat for finishing.
--Make sure your blow-dryer has sufficient voltage and a nozzle for a controlled, polished finish.
* A flat iron creates a sleeker, smoother finish and keep ends from curling under. If you choose to use a flat iron after you blow-dry, use on hair after completely dried and make sure it has ceramic plates to diffuse heat with maximum results and less damage.

EASY STEPS FOR THE PERFECT BLOW-OUT:

1) Apply a blow-dry product, like Redken satinwear 02 blow-dry lotion or straight 05 straightening balm to hair and use a wide tooth comb to evenly disperse product.

− To add volume and substance to fine hair, try thickening lotion 06 body builder.

− For maximum lift at the roots, apply guts 10 volume spray foam.

− For unruly hair, try align 12 ultra-straight balm.

2) Blast-dry hair on high heat until 80% dry, working from the scalp to the ends using fingers to disperse heat throughout the hair.

− For added volume at the roots, turn hair upside down while drying 80% using a boar’s head bristle brush.

3) Clip hair into 3 sections: 2 on the sides and 1 in the back.

4) Blow-dry each section one inch at a time using a thick, medium-sized boar bristle brush and low heat.

− Use the nozzle on your blow-dryer to keep the airflow pointed down the hair strand to prevent unwanted fly-aways that can be exacerbated from humidity.

5) For each section, start drying hair at the scalp and then move down to the mid-length of hair. When the mid-length is dry, finish the ends.

− For ultimate heat-styling protection, try spritzing Redken fabricate 03 heat-active texturizer on each section to create texture and dimension with added heat protection.

− To avoid your arms from getting tired, make sure to keep both your elbows at shoulder level, and use your wrists and lower arm to move the brush and dryer. And if you need to, take a break in between sections.

6) To finish the look, touch up each section with a flat iron (for added heat protection, re-apply fabricate 03 heat-active texturizer on each section before flat iron use).

− For additional control and frizz-free shine on your night out on the town, finish with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to keep that blow-dried perfection all night long.

7) Before heading out, spritz on some vinyl glam 02 mega-shine spray for instant gloss and a glam finish!

To add even more movement and bounce to this already sleek blow-out, “Roll two velcro rollers in the front two sections of your hair after your blow-dry is complete,” suggests Redken session stylist, Patricia Morales.While the rollers are in place, apply your makeup. Then, let the rollers down and you’ll have beautiful waves with extra movement and lift in the front and you’re ready to go – a trick I often do when styling Demi Moore’s hair.” (Lucky you!)

Review: Malibu Secret

Malibu Secret promises to be the body's answer to anti-aging skin care. Using key ingredients typically found in facial anti-aging moisturizers, Malibu Secret's founders say this innovative formula is like a makeover in a bottle. Intrigued, I gave it a try.

If you have grown up anywhere along the shoreline, the bottle's packaging will make you nostalgic. With "I love you" etched in the sand, the label almost reminded me of the covers from the romance novels I used to sneak from my mother's bedroom. When I opened the cap I found the scent as slightly floral, but reminded me more of Banana Boat sunblock. Once smoothed over my skin, the scent is less sunblock smelling and more perfumey. That's when memories of the beaches around Jamestown, Portsmouth, Naragansett and Prudence Island came back to mind. Just before the sand dunes there were always shrubbery and flowers...Malibu Secret's scent reminds me of this.

The lotion's texture is smooth, it quickly absorbs and is non-greasy. My skin felt incredibly soft--velvet to the touch. Naturally, well hydrated skin always gives off a more youthful, vibrant appearance. I decided to scan the ingredients on the label, only to find that not only did this product contain these "key" anti-aging ingredients, but other components that I personally feel are what made my skin so well moisturized.

For one the main ingredient is shea butter followed by sunflower seed oil, glycerin and cocoa butter--humectants, lipids and emollients. These ingredients alone would leave anyone's skin looking fabulous. Malibu Secret also contains aloe, Vitamins A, C and E, as well as other butters and oils. While I understand why the company wants to position themselves as different from the other lotions out there by promoting their anti-aging ingredients, to me Malibu Secret is a significantly wonderful product simply because it contains good-for-you ingredients that will properly moisturize your skin to help you attain a healthy glow.

Bottom line--this really is a fantastic product, but I feel it is less about the facial anti-aging ingredients in a body moisturizer and more about the other great natural skin softeners this product contains. You can get it at www.malibusecret.com for $25.

Review: Aqua Tan Clear Self Tanning Treatment For Faces



I've raved about Aqua Tan's Self Tanning Body Milk before (no orange color, no overwhelming smell) so I decided to give their Clear Self Tanning Treatment for Faces a try. The picture to the left is the light color my skin normally is and to the right is my color after two applications of Aqua Tan. Not a huge difference, but the effects is just the way I like it...a natural looking sun kissed skin tone. As you can see from the picture above--no orange look at all (let's leave that to Sunkist Ok?)

Aqua Tan's Self Tanning Treatment for Faces comes in a 1.7 oz. spray bottle. You can either spray it directly on your face and then smooth it out or you can spray into the palm of your hand and rub it over your face. I chose to spray it into my hands, as I felt like it gave me more control over knowing exactly where the solution was being smoothed over on my face. I definitely feared orange streaks or worse--missing areas and looking patchy. Since the solution is clear it is all about being diligent with ensuring you smooth it from the inside moving out to the hair line and down your neck. Aqua Tan's color doesn't show up right away, it does take about 6 hours before you notice any color change.

I'm definitely very happy with how the color has turned out on my face. If you choose to spray Aqua Tan into your palms, be sure to wash your hand thoroughly afterwards. Aqua Tan is available at www.aqua-tan.com

Review: Salt of the Earth Fizzing Bath Soak

Need to soak your cares away? I am all about products that not only help my mind wander off from the stresses of my daily life, but also make my skin feel incredible. I have been loving Salt of the Earth's Fizzing Bath Soak lately. I've tried both Warm Sugar Vanilla and Mandarin Orange to indulge my senses in their confectionary fragrance and skin softening magic.

Made with grapeseed oil, which is rich in Vitamins A & E, your skin will immediately be soothed while the fizzing disperses the delicious fragrance. Warm Sugar Vanilla smelled like a combination of vanilla and cotton candy, while Mandarin Orange was sweet, slightly citrusy with a kick of spice. I was honestly surprised by it because when it comes to bath time, I don't usually like citrus, but this really didn't smell like a true orange, and I found myself really loving it.

I can't even begin to tell you how soft your skin is going to feel from soaking in this grapeseed oil wonderland. I even let my boys with eczema have the opportunity to get their own baths in this moisturizing concoction. Duncan voiced how much better his skin felt because of it.

Salt of the Earth's Fizzing Bath Soak is available as part of the Spa Pack they offer. You won't want to be without their Salt Glow or Whipped Body Creme (I have that here too! Heaven!) You can find them at www.saltsoftheearth.net

Review: L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream

Dry skin doesn't only occur in the winter months, chlorine and salt water can dry your skin out in the summer months too. Make sure you keep your skin well hydrated as you bare those legs in your favorite sun dress this summer. Because seriously? There is nothing more gross than seeing scaly lizard legs. To prevent this fashion faux paus you might want to give L'Occitane's Shea Butter a try.

While the texture is thick it spreads on creamy and absorbs quickly into your skin leaving no greasy residue behind. I've tried other lotions that say "shea butter" on the label only to find it listed as practically the last ingredient. L'Occitane has 25% shea butter in this rich body cream, which may not sound like a lot, but compared to others on the market, this is a pretty high concentration. It also contains other moisturizing ingredients such as apricot oil, glycerin and sweet almond oil.

The product description did say it had a slight scent of jasmine and ylang ylang, but you could've fooled me into thinking this was an unscented product because I noticed no scent at all.

L'Occitane's Shea Butter is available at www.loccitane.com for $38 (7oz)

Review: Aloepure Skin Care

Aloette is a skin care company I have never heard of before...but one that I hope catches on with my other skin care guru friends. Their Aloepure line is so gentle yet so powerful, you'll wonder why more people aren't raving about this beauty brand.

Restorative Enzyme Peel: When the idea was first proposed to me to try out this peel, immediate thoughts of Freeman's Cucumber Mask entered my mind. So I was surprised when I opened the jar to find a jelly-like substance that feels like you are smoothing pure aloe across your skin. It's thick yet soothing. You apply it over dry skin and rub it in a circular motion under beading appears, then you rinse it off. It's non-drying, non-abrasive and really leaves your skin feeling wonderful.

Clarifying Facial Wash: I have combination skin and I am prone to breakouts (yes even at 33). This facial wash is thick in consistency with small jojoba beads to exfoliate and unclog your pores. It has a light citrus fragrance , but nothing too overwhelming. The Clarifying Facial Wash has a alpha and beta hydroxy acid complex that really goes to work on the problem areas of your skin.

Clarifying Deep Action Toner: Puts oily skin in check. If you have normal to dry skin, you'll want to skip this product.

Clarifying Moisture Balance: My favorite moisturizer so far. Thin in texture, absorbs quickly and is non-greasy--this moisturizer really seems to balance out my skin. It's oil-free and targeted towards acne-prone skin.


I'm also using the Hot Soy Manicure Treatment--but that baby is so good, it will get a review all on its own. All products can be purchased at www.aloette.com
