L'Oreal Introduces New Root Cover Up.....Bye-Bye Gray

We're hoping that gray hair can be eliminated somehow, someday. And no, we're not taking about those sexy men + women who look gorgeous in silver.

But for those of us who look LOUSY with gray strands invading our crowning glory, we're stuck with root touch-ups + hair dyes UNTIL a genius scientist can do better.

L'Oreal Paris has just launched a brand new temporary eliminator:

Root Cover Up with beautiful Eva Longoria in sexy ads for the spray-on product.

We have NOT tried this one yet, but an honest acquaintance of ours gave it 3 *** stars for it on her auburn hair.

My friend claims it COVERS well but feels like dry shampoo and can rub off a bit, if you touch your roots with your fingers and that hair gets STIFF sprayed with this.

We still think it's worth a try, because we ALL hate tell-tale roots, and UNTIL we can get them covered up, we NEED something to hide the evidence.

We found the cans at Walmart for 9.97 for a small, 2 oz. can.

Yes, we are going to try this NEW L'Oreal Root Cover Up. Might be a bit messy spraying this around a room, but hey....it's better than spotting our skunk stripe a mile away.

If you've tried Root Cover Up, tell us what you, think, ladies.

Discovering A Beautiful Complexion Through Tea Milk Skincare - Part 1

Here at BeautyTipToday.com, we are obsessed with skin care, and have come to learn that a beautiful complexion is NOT a given. We all actually have to work hard at creating flawless skin and maintaining it throughout life.

That's why we get happy inside when we discover brand new skin care systems like this one by TeaMilkSkincare.com.

More about Tea Milk Skincare in a moment.

We have mentioned here, again and again, that we believe in Retin-A to repair damaged skin + encourage new cell growth. And the many clinical trials seem to support this information.
But Retin-A is NOT perfect. It can be harsh, difficult to adopt a steady routine with, it's pricey, and you have to apply it for life for it to keep working. If you over-use it, which we have done on occasion, it can deliver, red, almost leathery skin until it calms down again.

So, when Jenn Wei, the founder of Tea Milk Skincare kindly sent us her favorite Tea Milk products to try, we were excited. If you're looking for CLEAN,  NATURAL ingredients which offer complexion benefits, then keep reading.

We believe Asian women hold valuable secrets about healthy, youthful skin. Jenn's website is very educational, and we learned plenty here at her blog.

PEARL POWDER is one magic element Asian women have used for many, many generations to boost collagen production. It's rich in amino acids + calcium.

It's in TeaMilk's Pearl & Jasmine Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($28).

MATCHA GREEN TEA is another superb ingredient, because it contains plenty of amino acids + anti-oxidants to battle inflammation, wrinkles, sun damage + sagging skin.

It's in Tea Milk's Matcha Pore Minimizing Face Mask ($25).

We LOVE that Tea Milk Skincare is providing all natural products. For example, the company sources whole leaf tea MINUS chemicals right from artisan farmers in Asia.

In Discovering Tea Milk Skincare - Part 2, we will tell you what we think of their skin care products.

Stay tuned.

Spring Is Just About Here! Time for MyChelle Sun Protection Products!

Are you ready for SPRING, ladies?!

The March equinox falls EARLY this year on March 20 at 4:30 UTC, or on March 19 at 11:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time.

Why a bit early?

We did some research and found this nugget from EarthSky.org:

...."2016 has the earliest spring since 1896. The March equinox can come on March 19, 20 or 21."

Here's why-----"In a nutshell, this earliest spring is happening because the tropical year, as measured between successive March equinoxes, doesn’t have an even number of days (365.242 days). Our calendar, on the other hand, has an even 365 days in a common year and 366 days in a leap year."

Now, that we have that out of the way, it's time to enjoy being outdooors even more. Some of you are heading to SPRING BREAK now, and some of you are gearing up for the Huge COACHELLA FESTIVAL in April.

Wherever your travels take you, DON'T FORGET the SUNSCREEN! Avoid the BURN.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals has just launched their NEW sun protection collection available NOW.

We love the MyChelle beauty brand, because it uses clean science as the company likes to say. Plus.....all MyChelle products are vegetarian, cruelty-free + stay away from artificial junk, parabens, sulfates, etc.

You NEED sunscreen. We LOVE MyChelle's Sun Shield Clear Spray SPF30 ($18, at ULTA) for
ALL skin types. This one is zinc-based and water-resistant for 80 minutes. It's so convenient with its continuous spray + twist-lock cap.

You'll also love throwing this one in your makeup bag, MyChelle Sun Shield Clear Stick SPF50, ($12, OUT of STOCK at the moment, but check their website here to see when they replenish stock).

Also toss this one into your travel bag, MyChelle Cucumber Cooler Soothing Spray ($16.50, at MyChelle.com). This is another superb Sun Care product. It contains 99% aloe leaf juice, so you know this is natural, soothing + ideal for your face + body.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals has got you covered all spring + summer long.

3 Brushable HairSprays That Hold, Shine + Are Gentle To Hair


It's one of those styling aids you can't do without, but how HARSH is your hairspray?

We all LOVE the hairspray that adds SUPER volume, staying power + shine, but are you sure it's NOT harming your tresses?

We've been using those hairsprays that LOCK every strand in place, but then when we go to BRUSH it, we can't get any teeth into the hair. TOO sticky.


So, we've gone back to brushable hairspray.

Oh, yeah.....It DOES exist, and is kinder + gentler to tresses, so strands don't SNAP off when trying to change styles or just to brush it out.

Here are 3 Brushable Hairsprays that women adore:

1. VO5 Hair Spray, Brush Out, 14 Hour Hold, Crystal Clear ($5.59, at RiteAid). Smells great + you CAN move hair around after spraying.

2. L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold ($14.99, at LOrealParisUSA). Lots  of shine + manageability....plus you can still brush through it.

3. Sebastian Shaper Hairspray ($18.95, at ULTA). Flexible hold + satiny finish.....and brushable capability.

Try one of these 3 brushable hairsprays. You still get great hold without that stuck-on, hot mess spray that won't allow a brush anywhere near it.

Rihanna's Stylist Uses Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion On Her For Amazing Shine + Body

Celebrity stylist Ursula Stephen once revealed that she likes using an inexpensive styling aid on the sexy star for great shine + blow-outs.

Ursula also happens to be a brand ambassador for the $4.00 hair product known as Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion. We found a bottle at SallyBeauty.

We have 2 bottles of it at ALL times. It's an AMAZING hair styling product.

And Ursula has mentioned in the past, that she uses it on Rihanna BEFORE red carpet events.

Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion is really a triple-threat secret beauty weapon. And here's why:

"I use it as a (1)primer before a blow-out, as a (2)texture enhancer to scrunch and shape waves, and as a (3)setting lotion for roller sets," Ursula

Now, that's what we call a versatile hair product. Plus, the lotion is a big shine-booster.

If you've NEVER tried this, get a bottle NOW!

You won't regret it! We like it as much as keratin styling products, plus this one gives you added BODY.
