City Pulse

By P.J. Gach

We’re inching closer to Christmas, Yule and Kwanzaa – whether we like it or not. Hanukah is just about over; but there are more holidays on the horizon.

As it gets colder, and the temp starts dropping, the weather gets meaner. The wind, cold air and the weird fluctuating indoor temps and dry air can play havoc with your skin and hair. It’s just as important now to have a good skin care regimen as it is when it’s brutally hot. There are so many products out there, how do you choose?

Korres Natural Products is a line of skin, hair and body products that is infused with goodness. Each product is enriched with active plant extracts. None of the products contain mineral oil, silicones or propylene glycol. Athens’s first homeopathic pharmacy is the root for Korres. The Korres line of products was created in 1996, by a group of young scientists who combined science and nature to create a healthy beneficial skin and hair care line.

Come to Searle this Saturday for a personal consultation with a Korres esthetician. They’ll guide you through the product line and will help you find the perfect regimen to protect your skin and hair this winter. Each customer who spends $50 or more receives a gift from Korres. To find out more about the company, please go to http://www.korres.com

It looks like a lip gloss, goes on like a lip gloss, but covers like a lipstick and lasts all day. What am I talking about? Sisley’s Metal Velvet Collection lip glosses. Just in time for the holidays, these lip glosses give your lips that extra punch you need for the mistletoe with their pearlized metallic shine. And they last! I road tested Pink Gold, wore it all day long, only had to reapply it once, in a period of eight or so hours. Walking outside, my hair did not magically adhere to the lip gloss. I drank two cups of coffee, then checked the gloss – just as shiny and pretty as it was when I put it on earlier in the day. You might think that because it’s metallic looking, it would dry out your lips, not so. The lip glosses contain Palm Oil, this gives your lips a smoother feel and protects against dehydration.

There are three great colors in the collection: Coppery Red, Gold Bronze, and Pink Gold. I’m going back and buying the other colors, the glosses are that great.

You can find the Sisley Metal Velvet Collection at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and select boutiques nationwide or http://www.saks.com and http://www.neimanmarcus.com.
