Clarins Must Haves

Clarins held a special event for us bloggers as part of the launch of their new Double Serum. Boy, did I learn a great deal of information about skin care. Did you know you are supposed to use an anti-aging cream by the age of 25? Also, you are supposed to pat your skin creams and serums on instead of rubbing them in. Apparently, rubbing stretches the skin, causing wrinkles. Celebrity skin care specialist, Jean Fayard, was on hand to personally show us the "must haves" and "must dos" for glowing, radiant skin.
So this Double Serum is apparently "Ah-mazing!" I personally obtained a bottle and am already feeling softer, more radiant skin. It is powered by 20 pure plant extracts and molecules. It reactivates the 5 vital functions on which skin's youth and beauty depend. I have been using it for a week and am already seeing results! In four, I should see the full results.

Jean pulled out the new "it" colors in the Rouge Eclat lipsticks this season. My personal favorite is Juicy Clementine as shown. BB Cream is huge right now and another key essential in Clarin's "must haves". I love the color it brings to my skin, hiding any imperfections. It also keeps my skin very matte which I love.

There you have it. Double Serum + BB Cream + a bright lip=  A Glowing, Radiant Face
Powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules—Double Serum’s innovative, dual chamber system combines two age-defying formulas into one groundbreaking serum that reactivates skin’s vital functions. So in just four weeks, skin is firmer, wrinkles are reduced, and pores are more refined. />See why 90% of women find it more effective than their current serum. Clarins also pulled out their amazing new lipstick colors perfect for Spring. Mt favorite, Juicy Clementine. Another beauty essential I am adding to my routine is their BB cream. - See more at:,en_US,pd.html?cm_mmc=Google-_-New%20Clarins%20Face-_-Brand%20Serum-_-double%20serum%20clarins#sthash.SuB7KtQ1.dpuf

I attended the Gusto-O Blow Dry Bar event last Wednesday and was completely smitten. This little salon is absolutely adorable with it's bright orange and pink decor including luxurious black leather chairs. I had my hair done with a glass of pink champagne in hand and was shocked by the technique. I had the Siren as it is called which are long, loose curls and the stylist actually curled my hair just using brushes. She would dry my hair while twirling the brush around and actually leaving it in like rollers for a few minutes. Needless to say, I was all glammed up.

The salon offers my two favorite lines, Living Proof and Oribe. I met owner, Kacey Pohlad, who was super sweet and happy to chat Gusto-O. After some Georgetown cupcakes and my new do, I was on my way to a fabulous night!
In January of 2012, Kacey Pohlad and Betsy Hawn left their careers to enthusiastically start the entrepreneurial adventure known as Gust-o. Together they recognized the market opportunities in both the East Coast hub of Boston and Midwest metro of Minneapolis, where the two live respectively. With distinct professional backgrounds, Kacey and Betsy jointly shared the same passion and vision of providing women with a unique salon experience that is time efficient, luxurious and stylish. - See more at:
