Recently, we wrote about the virtues of neroli, an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree.   Sister to the sweeter-smelling orange blossom, neroli oil possesses aromatherapy and hydrating benefits which are often used in skincare products, cosmetics, and fragrances.  We flipped for Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water.  A celebrity favorite — fans include Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad — its fragrant mist soothes, hydrates, and refreshes the skin.  With its uplifting aroma and natural ingredients, it serves as an ideal face toner or moisturizing body spray.  Embracing the mind/body concept, after a few spritzes, our stress levels were reduced and our spirits uplifted!

Kerstin Florian is offering twenty-five lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Rehydrating Neroli Water (retail $35) simply by following them on Instagram (or Facebook, if you don’t have) 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 from notification.

Post-Oscars, A-listers, such as Amy Adams, brought out their A-games to attend Graydon Carter’s Vanity Fair after-party — the place to be.  Celebrity stylist, Laini Reeves, took inspiration from Adams’ gorgeous Versace gown, creating a sexy, braided, side part opposite a mane of cascading waves.  Reeves shares her styling secrets with Beauty Undercover!

  • Reeves created a severe side part in Adam’s wet hair with a thin comb and applied ABBA Pure Performance Hair Care Thermal Protect Spray from roots to ends.
  • She then worked ABBA Pure Performance Hair Care Style Spray throughout the hair, creating a natural, brushable hold.
  • Taking a thin section of hair from the shorter side of the part, Reeves divided it into three equal parts.  Braiding it at the top, she began introducing small sections of hair into the braid.
  • When completed, Reeves secured the braid at the nape of the neck with a small bobby pin.
  • After quickly drying Adams’ loose hair, Reeves wrapped small small sections around a 2” curling iron barrel.
  • With a flat brush, she loosened the curls, before applying ABBA Pure Performance Hair Care Firm Finish Spray to secure the look.
