Hair Care: New York Streets

new-york-streetsBesides speaking at Cosmoprof this past July, the best part about attending it was coming across beauty brands I had never heard of before. New York Streets was one such hair care collection I had never encountered, but was captivated by as soon as I saw the packaging.

Review: Surgeon’s Skin Secret Bath and Shower Gel

surgeons-skin-secret-shower-gelAn easy way to “shower your way to sensational skin” is with Surgeon’s Skin Secret Bath and Shower Gel. All you need to do is add water and massage over your skin and you will instantly feel refreshed! This gel goes on so smooth and gentle it feels great after a long day in the sun.

All summer I would lay out for two hours in the sun (trying to get my tan on) almost every day and I’d end up feeling so beat and tired. The minute I’d get into the shower, I’d use this shower gel all over and my skin felt so soft and satiny. This product is also gluten-free so for those folks out there who are in search of a great shower gel, this is for you!

With a blend of Mallow Extract, Cucumber, Sambucus, Arnica, and Pellitory it smells absolutely amazing. It leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated and also smells yummy. Your skin will be glowing in no time! You can find it at www.jamarklabs.com.
