Ted Gibson’s Fix It Series

ted-gibson

Ted Gibson is best known for the magic he works backstage at fashion week and on A-list actresses as well as his own salon clients. Yes, this magic is a result of Ted Gibson’s talent, but it takes the proper tools to create stunning healthy looking hair. To make everyday styling a cinch for women everywhere Ted Gibson believes that the right styling products make all the difference. “My clients are always amazed when they discover a great styling product and see the difference it can make,” says Ted Gibson. “However, I’m not exclusively talking about the final result. The right products make styling so much easier, and that’s important to so many women who find it difficult to style their hair.”

Lucky for us time-crunched girls that he has created his own line of easy-to-use signature hair products to help us look just as good as when leaving the salon. Many of Ted Gibson’s styling products are now available at Target. In particular we love the build itâ„¢ blow drying agent, fix itâ„¢ gel and tame itâ„¢ shine lotion. The trio of products is inspired by the antioxidants in red wine known as polyphenols. This ingredient helps to prevent dryness and split ends and restore hair to look healthy, shiny and easier to manage. Ted Gibson’s other signature ingredient is wild orchid extract.

“Build it” is a blow drying agent that helps to build volume for as well as leaving it smooth. Simply mist over damp or dry hair to add body, bold movement and intense shine to your hair. $22.95

“Fix it” gel helps to add texture as well as shine. Pour desired amount into hands and apply to wet hair. $22.95

“Tame it” shine lotion combats the frizzies which can be brutal during summer humidity. This product also blocks humidity and tones and conditions the scalp. Apply pea-sized amount through wet or dry hair. $22.95

All of these products and more from Ted Gibson are available at Target.com

Transport Yourself to A Tropical Paradise With Kai Fragrances

kaiperfumeFor me nothing says summer like Kai perfume. Kai perfume oil instantly transports me to a tropical island where tropical gardenia and white exotic flowers are scent the warm island breezes. If you’ve visited the Hawaiian islands or Tahiti, you’ll begin to reminisce of lazy days lounging on white sandy beaches and eating papaya and mangoes by the dozen. In addition to the original perfume oil which has attained cult status, there are other products including a body lotion, body scrub, and an Eau de Parfum. For the home you can find scented room and linen sprays as well as scented voltive candles which will turn your space into an tropical paradise.

Review: Clarisonic Skin Care System (Men’s Grooming Version)

20090622-clarisonic-skin-care-system-for-menWith the continued growth of the men’s grooming market some people place it at billions of dollars, and it continues to grow (as seen in this report), it just made sense to have a guy’s perspective on A Girl’s Gotta SpaAnd, why? Because women want us well-groomed, to smell nice and look nice. And, well, we’re not all that swift (well, I am).

So, as Shannon is a friend and I’m a total product whore, I thought who better to write it than me? But, I also thought wait, I’m not gonna do this in my real name so I’m doing it in a pseudonym: Zeke Samuels. Yes, there is some thought behind the name. No, I won’t share it.

My review today is on the Clarisonic. I had been eyeing the Clarisonic product for the past few months, and finally took the plunge after a friend kept harassing me about it.
