Beauty Brands Offers Cool Summer Products

Summer is supposed to be easy, breezy and low-maintenance.  But the hot sun can melt your makeup and the humidity can sink your style, creating high upkeep for your looks.
Help is on the way from your local Beauty Brands salon -and-spa superstore. A treasure trove of products will help make you effortlessly beautiful and cool even during the cruelest of summers.  Here are some favorite melt-proof, wilt-proof picks for summer 2013 from the store’s team of beauty experts:

•  Body:  Want to look naturally sun-kissed?  Put on Per-fekt Body Perfection Gel/Tan Matte, featuring Smart Color Technology that allows all skin tones to use one shade.  You’ll get a flawless matte finish minus the streaks and scents that come with many other self-tanners.

• Face:  There are several ways to prevent runaway makeup when the temps start to climb:

Start with a pristine matte canvas, using philosophy matteness collection. This skin-soothing formula performs double duty as a deep daily cleanser and a weekly purifying mask.  It features glacial clay.  How cool is that?

Then, prep the face for the day with an all-in-one product like SmashBox Camera Ready CC cream – it primes, corrects imperfections, hydrates and helps makeup stay in place.  Or try water-resistant Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm SPF30, another perfecting primer that’s great for outdoor activity.

•  Eyes:  Look cool in the pool with eyeliner that stays put.  Try Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.  A marker tip applicator creates a flawless line with no skipping, smudging or pulling.

•  Hair:  What if you could create a force field between summer humidity and your hair?  Well, Sexy Hair Weather Proof Spray does just that.  It contains polymers that make a humidity resistant shield to protect blow-outs, updo’s and curls from wilting in the weather.

•  Nails:  Give yourself a long-wear, super shiny manicure that lets you have fun in the sun and is chip-free for up to two weeks.  Choose from a wide variety of colors by OPI GelColor or CND Shellac. You can get a gel manicure at the salon & spa at Beauty Brands.

Get Your Glow On for Spring – Advice from Citrine Natural Beauty Bar

The sun is shining and the weather is warming up, which means tank tops and shorts are coming out of the drawer again. Is your skin ready to see the light again after the cold season? Going from pasty to bronzed goddess is easy with the right tools!


Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! Scrubbing off that layer of dead skin is the most important thing you can do to restore that natural glow. Try Red Flower Revitalizing Sea Salt Scrub for your body. We love the Italian Blood Orange right now; this fresh summer scent is packed with antioxidants and essential oils that actually help heal your skin. All of Red Flower’s ingredients are biodegradable, organic and indulgent.

For your face, try REN’s Jojoba Microbead Purifying Facial Polish. Gentle enough to be used every other day, this cooling exfoliator cleanses deep into even the most sensitive skin.

Toning Gel

We highly recommend Per-fekt’s Body Perfection Gel, a celeb favorite product that gives you an instant airbrushed bronze glow. This gel smooths and perfects your skin far better than instant tanner or bronzer. With nourishing hyaluronic spheres, shea butter and ceramids, this non-permanent, non-transfer gel will leave you amazed. Beach-ready skin has never been so easy. With a regular option and three different shades to choose from, your skin tone has a guaranteed match. It’s your body, only better!

Don’t forget about your face! Per-fekt also offers Skin Perfection Gel, which uses Smart Color Technology to illuminate your face in the same way. Toss the drugstore bronzer and give these lightweight gels a try.

Spring Scents

A fresh, alluring scent tops of a sunny glow flawlessly. We recommend a sexy summer fragrance like KAI, a tropical floral scent with a huge celeb following.
