Julie from Fashion Pulse Daily and I at the Garnier open house!
In the skin care world, Garnier Nutritioniste is introducing caffeine to their new Skin Renew line. Caffeine stimulates cell activity and fights the first signs of aging to both boost youthful radiance and preserve it. At the event, I spoke with dermatologist for Garnier, Dr. Neal Shultz, M.D. Dr. Shultz is also host of the first online talkshow, called Derm TV, dedicated specifically to skin care. He informed me about caffeine’s ability to ward off skin cancer with no damage to healthy cells and when I said, “get out of the city, Cousin Larry,” (a la Balki Bartokomous–thanks Tamron, for reminding me of the wonder that is that show) he pointed me to this article. He predicted that caffeine will be the big ingredient of 2010, perhaps what argan oil was to 2009. I’m no derm (though my friend Lauren sought my guidance re: a skin issue of hers this weekend–my clinical diagnosis was “it’s a bruise.”), but I’m inclined to agree with him, particularly after reading what the article said about caffeine’s likely inclusion in sunscreens. I’m most excited about the brand’s new product, Skin Renew Awakening Face Massager.
The entire Skin Renew line will be available at mass retailers nationwide starting in July 2009. All items will be priced at a palatable $13.
Garnier Fructis Style is also coming out in July with a new Body Boost line and an Anti-Humidity Hairspray suite, which I’ll cover in a separate post.
