Capital Soleil line of sun care products coming to retail
NEW YORK — Vichy Labs has developed Capital Soleil, a new line of sun care products that will be sold at select CVS/pharmacy, Duane Reade and Walgreens locations.
This new full range of sun care products features an advanced UV filtering system to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, and employs an antioxidant combination of white grape polyphenols and vitamin E that helps provide cellular protection and neutralizes almost all types of skin-aging free radicals, the manufacturer stated.
A daily face protection fluid utilizing "shaka shaka" technology to deliver an ultra-sheer, matte application highlights the line. A partial emulsion, the fluid is packaged with two separate components — oil and water — that are combined by an enclosed ball bearing when shaken before application, making the "shaka shaka" sound.
This dispensing innovation in the Capital Soleil SPF 50 Ultra Light sunscreen fluid provides a sheer consistency. With a virtually transparent and smooth finish, the Capital Soleil SPF 50 is ideal for everyday use and for use under makeup.
The new range also features two sunscreen lotions: Capital Soleil Soft Sheer sunscreen lotion SPF 60 and SPF 30.
The Capital Soleil sunscreen line includes the following three products:
Capital Soleil SPF 50 Ultra Light sunscreen fluid ($24.50): This formula provides daily facial sun protection and helps fight free radicals to prevent signs of sun-induced aging. Employing "shaka shaka" technology, this fluid has a sheer and nongreasy finish that is ideal for daily use; and
Capital Soleil Soft Sheer sunscreen lotion SPF 60 ($29.50) and SPF 30 ($27.50): Both sunscreen lotions contain a combination of UV filters with antioxidants. These fragrance-free, water-resistant formulas were developed for sensitive skin, and Capital Soleil SPF 60 is pediatrician-tested.
Capital Soleil Soft Sheer sunscreen lotions will launch in May, while the Capital Soleil SPF 50 Ultra Light sunscreen fluid will launch in July.

L’Oréal Paris study uncovers sentiments about lipstick among women, men
NEW YORK — The majority of lipstick-wearing beauty mavens believe that lipstick improves their confidence, and many men associate women in red lipstick with such positive sentiments as being sexy and confident, according to the findings of a recent survey commissioned by L’Oréal Paris.
The "Lipstick Diaries" survey was commissioned by L’Oréal Paris and conducted online by Harris Interactive of nearly 2,300 men and women between March 25 and 29.
According to the survey, she said:
Do it in public: 75% of women have no problem when fellow lipstick-wearing women pucker up to apply in public;
Be selfish: 90% of lipstick-wearing women said that they’re not wearing that sultry hue for guys — it’s for themselves;
Stick to your guns: Ladies are sticking to their guns and choosing the colors that they want to wear — no matter what’s on the social calendar — and 75% of lipstick wearers choose the shade that looks best on them, regardless of whether it’s for a date or girls’ night out; and
Give it all up: Three-out-of-10 lipstick wearers would give up a prized possession, spanning from a morning coffee to a favorite pair of shoes, to keep their favorite shade close at hand.
Leave your mark: More than 60% of men believe that smeared makeup on their face is a telltale sign of a steamy make-out session;
Ravish in red: Nearly 70% of men associate women in red lipstick with positive sentiments like being sexy, confident and successful, while only 18% think it appears promiscuous; and
Role play: Thirty percent of men said they would rather wear lipstick for a day than gain 30 lbs.
