CAN YOUR MOISTURIZER PASS THE TISSUE TEST?

Aveeno Sheer Hydration Tissue Test Insert-v2 copy 2

Have you ever applied body or hand lotion, only to get that icky-sticky feeling?  You know, the one where you are afraid to put on a silk blouse or touch your new suede bag?  That means your lotion has failed The Tissue Test.  How do you take The Tissue Test?  Simply apply your body moisturizer to dry skin and then “blot” it with a regular two-ply tissue.  If it doesn’t adhere to the skin or show product residue, your cream passes!

Recently we were invited to an AVEENO product launch at Beverly Hills’ tony Olive & June nail salon.  The objective was to demonstrate the absorbency of the brand’s latest release, AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration.  Prior to putting the cream to the test, Beverly Hills dermatologist, Dr. Lisa Chipps, spoke and emphasized the hydrating benefits of Colloidal Oatmeal (an ingredient found in AVEENO’s ACTIVE NATURALS).  To our surprise we felt immediate results:  deep hydration without any residue!  We give AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration an A+ and look forward to their participation in our SWAG Program!

SWAG ALERT: SHU UEMURA COLOR LUSTRE!

THE ART OF HAIR!

Shu Uemura Art of Hair, the luxury brand known for its artistic approach to haircare, has recently launched its latest collection of color treatment products, the Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Collection.  Hair has a natural protective varnish which creates a hydrophobic barrier along the fiber. However, the hair coloring process, combined with regular washing, breaks down this protective layer, resulting in damaged, dry and dull strands. Color Lustre is the first color-treated line specifically formulated with a powerful refining lipid that restores the hair’s natural protective varnish to limit color washout.  The Color Lustre Collection features a sulfate-free Brilliant Glaze Shampoo, a nourishing Conditioner, a Treatment masque, and a lightweight leave-in Thermo-Milk refining lipid.

Shu Uemura Art of Hair is offering a limited number of Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to win a complete Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Collection (retail $212), simply by liking them on Facebook and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks.  **There are no SNIPES offered for this SWAG
