La Roche-Posay expands Effaclar line with new serum
NEW YORK — When it comes to skin care, women no longer have to make a choice between treating acne blemishes with a product that has no anti-aging benefits or treating the signs of aging with a product that may clog pores and lead to breakouts. Enter Effaclar Serum Pore-Refining/Anti-Wrinkle Serum from La Roche-Posay.
Effaclar Serum Pore-Refining/Anti-Wrinkle Serum promises to offer a no-compromise solution for adults looking to treat these concerns, including oily skin, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone and texture. The formula is clinically proven to reduce the number of dilated pores, improve radiance and decrease the intensity of wrinkles in four weeks, according to the manufacturer.
The ultra-fluid, fast-absorbing serum exfoliates the skin at three levels of the epidermis — from the deepest layer to the intermediary layer to the stratum corneum, or top layer — resulting in the tightening of pores, an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and an overall boost in skin radiance.
Effaclar Serum Pore Refining/Anti-Wrinkle Serum is noncomedogenic, paraben-free and dermatologist-tested, even on sensitive skin. It is suitable for use on the entire face in the evening.
Effaclar Serum Pore-Refining/Anti-Wrinkle Serum from La Roche-Posay has a suggested retail price of $39.95 and can be purchased at select physicians’ offices, select CVS/pharmacy stores, CVS.com, select Walgreens and Duane Reade locations, beginning in July.
Ramy Gafni encourages consumers to ‘fall’ for makeup collection
NEW YORK — Celebrity makeup artist and critically acclaimed "brow king" Ramy Gafni has rolled out his Fall in Love makeup collection for fall 2011 — a re-release of his classic fall favorites.
The collection, available at Duane Reade Look Boutiques, highlights this upcoming season’s most beautiful, rich colors. The palette includes vivid and luminous shades, while conserving the unmistakable feeling of calmness, serenity and glamour of the season. The line consists of five beauty essentials, including:
Eye shadow in Neutral Impact!: Ramy Beauty takes the guesswork out of selecting the ideal eye shadow with this smooth-textured, universal hue. Neutral Impact makes a big statement in a matte, sable taupe shade;
Lipstick in Ramy Red!: Ramy’s signature formula is loaded with avocado oil, vitamin E and sunscreen to help nourish and protect lips while delivering dynamic color. Ramy Red! is a universally flattering shade of red;
Lipstick in Thrive!: Perk up your pucker with the creamy, brown-based, burgundy-plum hue.
Blush in Alive!: One-of-a-kind, long-wearing color. Micronized and silicone-treated for extremely smooth application. This blush brings skin to life with its blend of pink, gold and brown color. Great for sweeping over eyes to really make eye color pop. A great alternative for women who are not inclined to wear eye shadows. Simply sweep over eyes with blush brush for a finished, polished look; and
OMG! Over Mascara Glitter & Liner: OMG! is the first of its kind with its 2-in-1 mascara wand and eyeliner applicator. Created to work in harmony, the wand and liner make the glitter application easy-to-use for the makeup beginner or the makeup junkie. The three-dimensional holographic shimmer creates the perfect come-hither, glitterazzi look. The formula is moisturizing, quick-drying and nonirritating to ensure a smooth and smudge-free application. And because it’s water-based, it’s safe to use on eyebrows, hair and lips.
