Candace Rose: What are some of the must have beauty products for those of us on the go?
Jenn Falik: "On the go this spring, you want things that are effective, that are fast and that are going to make you look your best. And we're showing skin that's been under wraps all winter long, it's now time for its big reveal. You want your skin to obviously be hydrated and Vaseline Total Moisturizer has a new collection of body lotions from Vaseline that deeply hydrates the skin and it also feels great going on. So a lot of times for women there's been this trade off between a product that feels great and a product that actually works well with what you're skin needs. So the goal here from Vaseline is to deliver both those benefits in one bottle. The formula is non greasy, it's fast absorbing, it's got a multilayer moisturizing complex in there so it protects and moisturizes all three layers of the skin. You've got three different formulas, you can pick and choose which one fits your needs most. The Aloe Fresh is really great for spring and summer- a nice cool, light sort of burst of freshness on the skin.
You also of course want to make sure that you've got a nice clean shave because nothing ruins a gorgeous mini skirt like stubbly legs. So Schick Xtreme3, which is known for it's flexible triple blade and the soft shave that it delivers, and is finally adding eco friendly to its repertoire with the launch of the Xtreme3 Eco razor. And this is the first razor in the U.S. to use 100% recycled plastic in the handle and 100% recycled paper in the packaging. So they are estimating that they are going to rescue about 103,000 pounds of plastic from landfills this year alone, so that's a really significant environmental contribution. To celebrate that they have partnered with celebrity eco couple Amy Smart and Carter Oosterhouse on the Project REMAKE contest where they're really encouraging people to take stuff around the house that you're not using and turn it into something useful. So you can go to Facebook.com/ShickXtreme3– you can win prizes, get creative inspiration- there's some cool stuff that Amy and Carter have created on there. And it's just a great way to encourage yourself to do a DIY project and support the environment and win some good stuff in the process.
And the final new must have for spring comes from Dove and it is a deodorant that doesn't only deal with those annoying white marks you get when you're putting deodorant on, but it also deals with an issue 32 million women have which is dark marks in the underarm arm from shaving irritation. So this takes Dove's 50 plus years of skincare expertise and it brings it up a notch with the launch of ClearTone deodorant and antiperspirant. It's got collengula in there; it's got sunflower extract, that's going to restore the skin. This is the first and only deodorant in the U.S. that reduces dark marks and restores an even skintone; and it also provides at the same time the things that you want from a great deodorant and antiperspirant which is 24 hours of odor and wetness protection."
