Anyone who has ever suffered from razor burn or been scalded by too-hot wax when trying to de-fuzz will be happy to know that there is now a safer, less painful and more efficient way to rid your body of unwanted hair.
Now available in Mexico exclusively at select salons, Holiday Pure Diamond Sugarpaste and Holiday Stardust Sugarpaste offer a revolutionary way to remove hair with a water-soluble, biodegradable sugar cane paste that can be used at low temperatures and will not irritate skin,
There is no need for removal strips with Diamond and Stardust, both of which peel off easily and have the added effect of a mild exfoliant, so skin is left smoother and brighter.
Holiday has also introduced its Perfetta vegetable wax line to Mexico, with a special resin formula that uses advanced technology to strip hair without pulling the surrounding skin.
The brand’s scented aromatherapy synthetic wax collection is enriched with zinc oxide, known for its anti-aging and skin-softening qualities that make it suitable for even the most sensitive complexions.
Holiday’s Elastique wax line is a special blend of vegetable resins, beeswax and shea butter, suitable for all types of hair removal.
Holiday, based out of Italy, has been producing quality waxing products for more than 45 years and is the Number One brand for depilation in Europe.
Tasty Italian Beauty
The oh-so-chic Italian cosmetic brand Naj Oleari is now available in Mexico exclusively in select Liverpool stores nationwide.
The brand, which was extremely popular across Europe in the 1980s for its stand-out print clothing and accessory designs, is known for keeping it simple, whether it comes to fashion or beauty products.
And Naj Oleari’s new cosmetic collection combines style with practicality to make getting a runway look easy and uncomplicated, so you can get out the door and look gorgeous in no time flat.
The collection includes a 15 SPF foundation, blush and powder (all scented with a hint of rose buds); a range of matte and shiny lip colors and glosses (flavored with a sweet cherry essence); fruity, quick-dry, one-coat, gel-effect nail polishes; and mascaras, eyeliners, brow definers and shadows.
Naj Oleari also has its own line of makeup brushes and other accessories to complement its cosmetics, as well as a micellar water enriched with hyaluronic acid to plump and vitamins C and E to nourish skin.
Spritz of the Sea
Bumble and Bumble, the iconic New York hair salon brand for high-performance styling, has relaunched its Surf Spray, a handy, saltwater-based aerosol that adds texture, volume and hold for matte waves that mimic a fresh-off-the-beach look.
Suitable for either straight or wavy hear, Surf Spray offers both hold and volume that lasts all day.
Available in Sephora, Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray has naturally occurring seaweed extract to soften and smooth while adding elasticity and luster to your tresses.
It is also rich in iodine and minerals that contribute shine and manageability to hair and reduce the harshness of chemicals found in treated water.
And for extra shine, there is Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Infusion, a salt-meets-oil spray that provides soft texture for sea-tossed waves with sheen.
The holiday season is almost here, and for many Mexicans, that means travel.
This year, Mexican blogger Alan Estrada, star of the internet video program “Alan X El Mundo” (with more than 2 million subscribers), has teamed up with the Mexican luggage company Cloe to produce a special go-anywhere, light-weight, resilient, waterproof collection of suitcases, duffels, backpacks and carry-ons that fit virtually every travel need.
The limited edition collection is now available in both red and black at Liverpool, Cloe boutiques and online.
