HydroPeptide Duo Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted on: October 9th, 2014


I love my lipglosses and I am Loving HydroPeptide Perfectly Pink Perfecting Gloss Set. The Perfectly Pink Perfecting Gloss Set contains 2 shades of HydroPeptide’s Lip Enhancing Treatments. Beach Blush and Nude Pearl and both shades look amazing on  the lips. The glosses works to “restore lip fullness, volume and definition within minutes while enhancing long-lasting suppleness and hydration. A triple-sized hyaluronic acid complex and warming peptide enhance lip volume immediately by improving elasticity, hydration and helping to smooth the appearance of wrinkles. A plumping peptide supports collagen synthesis for lips that stay supple and look fuller between applications. Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, dilates blood vessels and creates a sensation of warmth for a pinker, more youthful-looking pout!”

HydroPeptide is offering the Perfectly Pink: Perfecting Gloss Set. This year, $5.00 from the sale of each duo sold during the month of October will be donated to the Personal Care Products Council Foundation for the benefit of their Look Good Feel Better program. Additionally, HydroPeptide donates the expertise of the company’s in-house estheticians to conduct Look Good Feel Better workshops. Made possible by the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, these workshops deal with the cosmetic effects of chemotherapy.

Cocktails & Color to Fight Breast Cancer from Beauty Bar & Nailtini®

Posted on: October 1st, 2014



In what can best be described as a pairing that begs the question “what took them so long?”, Beauty Bar and Nailtini, renowned purveyors of cocktails and beauty, are coming together in the fight against breast cancer in the best way they know how – through martinis and manicures for the cause.

When Beauty Bar founder Paul Devitt lost his ex-wife to breast cancer caused by the BRCA gene mutation – which could also affect his young daughters – he resolved to leverage the notoriety of his trend-setting business to make a difference. Nailtini founder Michelle Toma Olson was only too eager to get involved, pledging to stock participating Beauty Bar locations with her brand’s incomparable lacquers for services and retail sale, proceeds from which will benefit the Basser Research Center for BRCA at the Universtity of Pennsylvania.

This passionate part of Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center provides education and support for individuals and families with BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, with its mission being to deliver cutting edge research in basic and clinical sciences to advance the care of individuals who carry them.

Devitt and Olson took the collaboration a step further by curating a Beauty Bar collection for “The Lacquer Cabinet” – Nailtini’s exclusive lacquer delivery service featuring limited-edition on-trend collections made for polish mixology. Launching just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this trio of not-your-grandmother’s-pinks features Nailtini’s vegan, 5-free and low-toxin formula, peerless performance, and a $2 per box donation to the Basser Center:
Pink Pussycat – sheer smoke brimming with hot pink glitter
Pink Fix – hot petal pink meets sultry glamour
Pink Pillow – champagne-kissed pink with satiny shimmer

With each in Nailtini’s all-premium formula, you can wear them straight, layered or hand-mixed with other shades in the empty mini bottles that come in each Lacquer Cabinet delivery box to create a myriad of custom nail looks – whatever you feel like stirring up. The shades are also exclusively available for services, along with more from the Nailtini range, at all Beauty Bar locations.

The Nailtini for Beauty Bar Lacquer Cabinet Collection is available at and will ship to subscribers in October 2014. Purchase a single collection for $25, a 6-month subscription for $23/month or a 12-month subscription for $20/month. A true happy hour for hands, each collection offers more than $44 in retail value plus free shipping.

Posted on: September 24th, 2014


Gavée Gold is a spectacular new line of organic skincare created by, Tiffany Andersen a master medical aesthetician, and holistic health practitioner for over 20 years. While visiting Gavée Gold website I discovered that Tiffany Anderson’s “passion in creating Gavée Gold began with her own health adversity after surviving a near death car accident and stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma she began to search out new ways to repair the body. In her search, she discovered rare elements with unique theraputic properties that help repair both internal and external health.Hence – Gavée Gold was born.”

The Gavée Gold Collection is free of toxic ingredients including, parabens, sulfates, and propylene glycol. Another fact that makes Gavée Gold quite unique is that it contains rare elements, such as liquid gold, ozone, and cell salts that make Gavée Gold a cutting edge skin care line.

The Gavée Gold Collection can be purchased individually and in full sizees. I found that the best way to sample the collection is with the  7-piece Gavée Gold Travel Kit.
