The New Year is the best time to look into the future, but before we do so let’s take a quick look into the past. Here is a wrap-up of our favorite Planet Beauty products from 2012!
Clarisonic Sonic Skin Care systems revolutionized the world of skincare when they first introduced the Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System. After the Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System came the Mia, then the Mia 2, which brings us to the Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing System. The Aria is the sleekest of all the Clarisonics, and has 3(!) speeds as opposed to the two that the Classic model has. The Aria also boasts a real-time battery life indicator to make usage and charging easy! Another bonus: the drying stand converts to a charging station! The Aria gets skin up to 6 times cleaner than cleaning with hands alone.
AVA Oil is a standout product of 2012 because it is hair oil that works on all hair types, colors, and lengths! AVA Oil contains Grape seed oil, which is a natural heat protectant. It also cuts your blow dry time in half! This light weight, color-free oil can be used in damp hair before a blow dry, or even on dry hair to get rid of frizzies and add extra shine. It smells delicious and even moisturizes skin!
Speaking of blow drying, T3 released the Featherweight 2, which is the upgrade to the Featherweight. It is powered by Tourmaline® technology that dries the hair without doing damage. It also has SoftAire™ technology that is proven to be healthier than air drying. The Featherweight 2 is just as light weight as the original Featherweight, just with a new, ergonomic tilted handle in a fashionable body. Hair will be soft, shiny, and bouncy!
BB Creams were HUGE in 2012, and will still be going strong in 2013. BB Creams are amazing because they do five things at once! They prime, perfect, hydrate, protect, and control oil. You can feel good about wearing your foundation because it will be doing good for you! It provides coverage that is buildable, and has an SPF of 35. Try Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, it will leave you glowing while benefiting your skin!
