Best Gifts for The Beauty Lover

       
Friday, December 12th, 2014

Best Gifts for The Beauty LoverHoliday gift ideas may not come easily, especially for those who are not fond of shopping. There are several online stores and eCommerce options that specialize in a number of different industries and genres. These solutions make it simple to shop for the man or woman who seems to have everything. When a gift recipient has a special interest or hobby, the search for the perfect gift becomes narrower and directed toward a specific product or service. Anyone who is into beauty regiments and skincare treatments will be pleased with the great new holiday collections by some of the most trusted names in the business.

Consider Gift Sets
Attempting to make a purchase of multiple beauty products or skincare enhancements is typically much smoother when the products are bought in tandem. Gift sets are not only more economically priced, but they are also conveniently and beautifully wrapped. This single step approach saves the giver both time and resources. The Philosophy Pink Marshmallow Buttercream Trio makes a fun gift because it encompasses many different facets of a daily beauty routine. Gift sets like this one include a bath or shower gel, scented lotion, and a bonus item for good measure. In this case, a moisturizing lip shine adds the finishing touch to morning preparations.

Remember The Men
Gift sets are not just for the ladies, and many popular brands are specifically catering to the male audience. Today most men are keenly aware of the benefits of proper skincare. Certain occupations, especially those that include outdoor work, can result in dry or rough skin. Men can now protect their hands and face from chapping and cracking, which can be extremely painful. One of the easiest gifts to choose for a man is a shaving product or gift set. The Art of Shaving Skin Care Kit features a host of products meant to prepare skin for shaving and then provide lasting protection.

Add Some Glamour
Every woman wants to feel beautiful and desirable. Sometimes they spend so much time as caregivers that they fail to take time to adequately care for themselves. Cosmetics are a great gift for the girl who wants to look and feel her very best. A gift that allows a woman to pamper herself through a massage, manicure, or pedicure will be much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. Bold and flashy cosmetics are great ideas for the woman who wants to make a statement. The flirtatious Sexyback Lip and Nail Duet from the Deborah Lippmann collection is the perfect accent gift or stocking stuffer from ladies who love to have fun with their makeup and accessories. Ladies who prefer a more practical approach to life but still have a great sense of humor will get a kick out of the Bliss Crown Jewels or Buttah Bling gift sets.

Regardless of the number of tasks at hand for the season, shoppers are sure to find the perfect choices for all the men and women on their gift list. Leading brands have made their most coveted products available in convenient packaging to make the shopping experience seamless and productive. Many shoppers are bound to be so impressed with their skills that they will decide to pick up a few key products for themselves during their shopping excursions.

Happy Movember!

       
Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Happy MovemberIt is that time of year again when moustaches rule – the month of Movember. Movember was created by the Movember Foundation which encourages men to grow moustaches in an effort to bring awareness to men’s health as well as to fund research or treatment for prostate and testicular cancer. The organization’s vision is to deliver the message in a fun, unique manner.

Movember Rules

Movember has official rules which can be found on the foundation’s website. The first rule is that participants must sign up on the site to become a “Mo Bro” and begin the first of November with a clean-shaven face. For the entire month, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache and only a moustache. They may not grow beards, goatees or use fake moustaches. As people ask why they are growing such a rich, luscious moustache, each Mo Bro is supposed to begin a conversation on men’s health. In addition, Mo Bro’s are asked to raise money in some manner to help prevent or develop cures for prostate and testicular cancer. Lastly, each Mo Bro must behave as a true gentleman.

Fund Raising Events

There are many options for fund raising during Movember. One suggestion on the website is to plan a Mo Party. Those who choose to host a Mo Party can register on the site and receive a free Mo Party pack in order to raise funds and encourage others to participate in Movember. Some areas have created running of the Mo’s, events that bring Mo Bros and Mo Sistas together. Many other running events are planned throughout the country to promote Movember as well. Shave the Date is the official start to Movember, where participants shave their faces in order to begin growing their Movember ‘stache. Although November 1 is the official Shave the Date, events can be held throughout the month for those who don’t mind getting a late start.

Grooming the Stache

Participating in Movember does not mean growing a big lump of hair under your nose that is unruly and unkempt. The moustache should be well-groomed and tidy, although it should draw attention to the man sporting it. The moustache should be shampooed regularly as bits of food can collect in it which no one really wants to have happen. Work in a tiny bit of conditioner as moustache hair is course. A soft, hot towel is perfect for cleansing the skin under the moustache to avoid drying and itching.

Choose the moustache style from the beginning and be sure to invest in the right tools for the job, such as barber scissors, clippers and fine-toothed combs. Beauty Bridge have everything you need to make your moustache part of a very Happy Movember!

Men and their Influence on the Beauty Industry

       
Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Men and their Influence on the Beauty IndustryYears ago, the American male skin cleanser might have been the equivalent of a fine grade of sandpaper mixed with a bit of Lava soap. In order to save face, men and boys have been sneaking into their wives’ or mother’s drawers to find what they need when their faces needed moisturizing or to find cream for razor burn. Why? Stigma, or the lack of signature skincare products for men and boys; after all, men and boys do suffer from dry skin and might need a foundation to cover-up complexion problems too, don’t they? Addressing the need, and understanding the desire, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs are launching cosmetic lines for men. They are bringing a solution to the cosmetics counter and online store—to meet the needs of men—their own niche cosmetics and skincare products, from shaving systems to body scrubs, you can find it all.

Boy how, things have changed! Now, if men are interested in taking care of their skin and using herbal shaving creams and after-shave treatments there is a large selection for them. Men, you can get what you need and want for your skin and choose the kind of skincare and fragrance that works for your lifestyle. You don’t need to have your wife, friend or sister shop for you at the Clinique counter; you have your own brands. It is understood—men use and buy skincare, designer shaving products, and even specially formulated foundations that work for male skin. European men have long known about and used skincare products, undaunted by social stigma, they cleanse their skin daily and use moisturizer and are unashamed to buy and talk about skin-health and proper care.

If you are looking for skincare products from Jack Black and other prominent designers, cologne, unique shaving accessories’ and body scrubs, Beauty Bridge has an array of products to suit your taste. If you prefer an unscented natural and herbal moisturizer, Baxter of California features Oil Free Moisturizer, a lightweight, oil free and fragrance-free selection, filled with antioxidants, vitamins E, A, and D, Japanese green tea, aloe and soothing chamomile.

If Sothys is more to your liking, you can find HOMME Soothing After-Shave Balm that brings freshness to the skin, prevents spots and soothes razor burn.

Today, specially formulated cosmetics and skincare products are wrapped with packaging that appeals to the male sensibility. Skincare and cosmetics for women only? Not really.

The 6 Days of Beauty

The 6 Days of Beauty

Of course you’re focusing on buying for your loved ones this holiday season, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a little reward, too. In fact, all the stress of the holiday season means you need some TLC now more than ever. While perusing the seemingly endless amount of hair and makeup products out there, how do you know which ones are best for you? Picking out a gift for yourself can be just as difficult as choosing one for someone else in your life. The fact is, the world of beauty is a complex one, and when you’re more educated about what different products can do, you can better harness the power they provide. You may need a few lessons before you buy new items.

Enter: The 6 Days of Beauty. Beginning this week, Beauty Bridge will begin sending out a series of emails with informative tips and tricks from head to toe. Worried that all your heat hair styling will cause frazzled ends? Wondering how to perfect a smoldering smoky eye? Curious about what bath elixirs will put you in a more tranquil state? Each one of these emails will provide you with advice and helpful recommendations so that not only can you choose ideal products for your needs, but you can use them to their maximum advantage.

Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll learn about:

Day 1: Perfect Winter Hair Products
Wintertime doesn’t just mean inclement weather – the frigid temperatures and dry air can cause a host of problems for your hair. That means that it’s time to switch up your hair products when the seasons change. Still, what kind of conditioner will give your tresses the moisture they so desperately need? What hair sprays can eliminate flyaways from your static-provoking hats? How do you protect your locks from damage when you’re flat ironing them into a sleek ‘do for a holiday soirée? It’s nearly impossible to navigate the world of winter hair products without a little assistance, which is why the first series is focused on this subject.

Every day should be a good hair day. Armed with some new knowledge about which solutions can best protect your hair through the coldest season, your strands are sure to shine.

Day 2: Dreamy, Sultry, Sparkling Eyes
With the shimmering snowfall outside and sequined party dresses all around, it’s natural to gravitate toward more sparkly makeup. However, glittery eyes require the right tools and tactics to work. If you’re aiming to amp up the glitz factor this season, the second installment of the 6 Days of Beauty is made for you. The key to getting an eye-catching look is to combine hues that complement one another, and apply them with precise techniques. It may not sound easy, but with the information provided in the 2nd Day of Beauty, achieving this kind of dramatic impact with your eye makeup will become second nature.

This series will equip you with the information you need to achieve anything from a subtle shimmery eye to a dramatic metallic smoky eye in mere minutes. That means it’s definitely a must for all your upcoming holiday bashes and events.

Day 3: Winter Skin Care Products
Just as you change up your wardrobe during the winter, you need to do the same for your skincare regimen. The proper combination of skincare products is crucial for protecting your skin from the harsh winter air. After all, flakes may be pretty during a snowfall, but they’re not so attractive on your skin. Whether you have dry skin or an oily complexion, picking ideal products for your type can ensure you don’t run into problems that wreak havoc on your appearance. In fact, some skincare products are specifically designed to alleviate the issues that inevitably arise during the winter.

This installment is designed to aid you in both selecting solutions that will address your specific concerns, as well as advise you about when and how to apply them. There’s no reason to forfeit your glow just because it’s no longer summer.

Day 4: Irresistible, Sensual Scents
Scent is a powerful sense: It has the ability to make you instantly more magnetic, even in a crowded room, and also make you far more memorable, even long after you’ve met someone. Are you looking to switch your scent for something a little more alluring this season? The realm of fragrances isn’t always easy to navigate. With so many different combinations of notes, it can be difficult to choose one. That’s why on the 4th Day of Beauty, we decided to give you a lesson on aromas. From feminine floral fragrances with passionate fruity undertones to woodsy scents with seductive amber and vanilla, there are a vast array of options at your disposal.

Maybe you want a rollerball to tote with you on the go, or perhaps you want to take the plunge with a full sized bottle of a new fragrance. If you find a scent you like, you may even consider going all out with a gift package that contains a lotion and a body wash in your preferred aroma. Either way, with our help, you’ll find a scent that keeps you smelling heavenly all through the season.

Day 5: Men Need Grooming
It’s time to face facts: men need to invest in certain beauty products, too. Of course, most guys will spend far less time in front of the mirror than girls do, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be mindful of the skincare and shaving products they use. In fact, men often face a lot more issues with their skin due to a higher testosterone level, meaning they’re more likely to battle blackheads and breakouts. Plus, shaving ushers in a host of other concerns, such as razor bumps. Fortunately, no man has to suffer through these issues. With the right products and practices, any guy can make sure their complexion is clear. Additionally, as men grow older, they may begin to notice a few wrinkles and fine lines begin to form. While this is an inevitable part of aging, there are particular products that can help to reverse these effects to help you restore your youth.

If you’re a guy who takes pride in the way you look, you’ll definitely benefit from the 5th Day of Beauty. Whether it’s softer, fuller hair you’re seeking or a smoother shave, there is a wealth of information in this installment to help you achieve your ideal appearance.

Day 6: Soothing and Relaxing Bath Products
Between running around from store to store for all your holiday shopping to hosting festive events, things can certainly get a little hectic during this season. That’s why it’s more important than ever to set aside a little “me time.” There’s something to be said for indulging in a relaxing bath after a long, stressful day. Not only can you alleviate some of the built up tension that negatively impacts your health, but you can also recharge your perspective so you’re in a better mood.

So which bath products will most help to calm your mind and body? Wait for the 6th and final Day of Beauty email to find out.

Favorite New Gift Sets from BORGHESE

Choosing the right gift for someone you care about can be a daunting task. Still, the idea behind a present is ultimately to let them know you care and to give them something that will make life more enjoyable.

For all of those instances when you have no idea what to get, Borghese Gift Sets are a perfect solution. With a variety of options ranging from aromatherapy to skincare, you can choose one that’s tailored to the recipient’s needs, tastes and preferences.

Leisure
Have a friend who could use some relaxation in their lives? The Tuscan Home Candle Collection is an ideal gift. Each of the three Italian-inspired aromatic blends is formulated to give off a subtle scent to promote tranquility in the home.

The Bagno Beautiful Gift Set is another fitting option for a stressed-out friend. While lounging in the tub, the Borghese Bagno di Vita Body Soak with Italian minerals and botanical oils will alleviate tension and soothe sore muscles. After a bath, the Borghese Tono Body Crème will seal in moisture so skin feels buttery soft.

Lure
If you have a lady in your life that’s always on-the-go, go for the Tuscan Beauty Set, which comes with a bright rose-printed travel cosmetics bag and a multitude of skin products for a flawless complexion. The Crema Saponetta Cleansing Creme will gently wash away impurities, while the ultra-luxurious Fango Ferma Firming Mud Mask for Face and Body has a transformative effect. Meanwhile, the Curaforte Moisture Intensifier boosts the skin’s ability to hold on to hydration.

An aging friend will delight in the ReaFIRMing Beauty Gift Set. Every product, from the Insta-Firm Platinum Advanced Wrinkle Relaxer to the Crema Intensiva Intensive Firming Creme, is formulated to smooth out fine lines, enhance the skin’s elasticity and promote a youthful glow.

If you know someone who’s especially romantic – or could use a little love in their lives – send them the Lucky in Love Gift Set. The Satin Shadow Milani Trio and best-selling State-of-the-Art Mascara will make her eyes wink-ready, and the B Gloss Lip Gloss in Red Lustro is perfect for a kissable pout. One spritz and she’ll instantly fall for the feminine floral Il Bacio Eau De Parfum Spray.

Luxury
Instead of sending them to the spa, give loved ones the gift of a comparable experience in their own home with the Tuscan Secret Gift Set. The Botanico Eye Compresses rejuvenate the eye area, and the Sali Esfoliante Salt Scrub will buff off dead skin, revealing a brighter, smoother layer beneath.

For your beauty-savvy friend, nothing compares to the Effortlessly Extraordinary Gift Set. A powerful cleanser, toner and moisturizer formulated with a combination of technologically-optimized ingredients fuel the skin’s cell regeneration and help reverse the signs of aging.

Would you date a dude who wears makeup?

       
Friday, June 29th, 2012

Would you date a guy who wears makeup?Before you start imagining your guy standing in front of the mirror painstakingly applying eyeliner and mascara, realize that we're talking about makeup that's a bit more subtle – like concealer or tinted moisturizer to even out his complexion. Apparently, Emma Stone said she wouldn't mind dating a guy who wears tinted moisturizer, as it's necessary on camera, reports Allure Magazine. But would you?

The first thing you do when you spot a zit is probably reach for the same types of products, so who's to say a guy can't do the same? Red, angry pimples aren't ideal no matter what sex you are. However, most guys would balk at the thought of putting something like this on their face, so they're more likely to want preventative products that will keep acne from surfacing in the first place.

Exfoliation is one way to make sure that no dead skin cells are clogging up pores, so your guy might like Jack Black – Face Buff Energizing Scrub. Not only does it smooth skin and feel cool to the touch, but it helps prep the skin for a closer shave. Bonus! A moisturizer is also a great product that'll keep your guy's skin soft and clear, so try adding something like Baxter of California – Oil Free Moisturizer to his routine. It's a lot better than having to cake on makeup!

How to get your guy to wear sunscreen

       
Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Getting your guy to wear sunblock shouldn't be a chore!Women who peruse beauty magazines and blogs are always reading about ways to keep safe from the sun’s damaging UV rays, but guys who don’t have such literary tastes don’t get the same helpful info. As a result, they’re way more likely to get bad sunburns and, eventually, skin damage like wrinkles, age spots and even cancer. So what can you do to protect your guy?

Instead of getting all preachy on him, why not just make sure that he has a great sunblock like Dermalogica – Daily Defense Block SPF15 on hand? If you give him a couple to put in his car and bathroom, he’ll always be able to slather on the SPF.

If your dude never remembers to apply it, you could always ambush him poolside. After you’re done smoothing a lotion like Dermalogica – MultiVitamin BodyBlock SPF 20 all over your body, tell him you’d be more than happy to do him the favor. He probably won’t object to having your hands all over him. As long as you’re not nagging him about the sunscreen, he’ll likely appreciate the fact that you care about his skin’s health.

What gift will you get Dad this Father’s Day?

       
Thursday, June 7th, 2012

What will you get your dad this Father's Day?Even though Mother’s Day tends to overshadow the holiday devoted to dads everywhere, celebrating Father’s Day this June 17 with a thoughtful gift is still a good way to show your father that you’re grateful for all he’s done for you. But what will you get him? Some dads seem to have everything they could possibly want! Here are several ideas to help you decide on the perfect present this Father’s Day.

1. Tickets to see his favorite sports team. Whether it’s for a baseball game this summer or a football game next season, chances are your dad will love the opportunity to watch his favorite team play. Get two tickets so you, Mom or a friend can accompany him for the perfect day out.

2. A deluxe shaving kit like eShave – Start Up Kit. It comes with a genuine badger brush, which exfoliates, softens and raises the hair for a shave that’s as close as possible. The set also includes a pre-shave oil, shave cream and after shave cream, all in a convenient black travel bag. Stubble will be a thing of the past for your dapper dad!

3. A home brewing kit. Does your father have a taste for cold, delicious brews? Instead of taking him out for a night at the local brewery, get your dad everything he needs to create his own ale. A couple of beer mugs to go with the set will ensure that he’ll be able to taste his masterpiece in style.

4. Anti-aging skincare products like Jack Black – Line Smoother Face Moisturizer. If your dad has started to complain about the fact that he’s getting older, a few choice skincare products to combat fine lines, wrinkles and age spots might be just the thing to lift his spirits. Lightweight and oil-free, your dad will barely notice that he’s wearing this moisturizer – until he starts seeing results!

5. The latest gadget. If you have siblings who can help you buy a splurge-worthy item for Dad, why not get him up-to-date on the latest technologies? Whether he’s into computers, eBooks, cameras, smartphones, mp3 players or television, there’s likely a new product out that he’d love to get his hands on.

6. A classic yet cool tie. If you think your father could use a bit of direction when it comes to his fashion tastes, you might be doing him a favor by providing him with a go-to tie to wear for special occasions. Choose one that complements his personality and favorite color scheme so he’ll always look dashing.

7. A new fragrance, like RALPH LAUREN – Polo For Men Eau de Toilette Spray. If your dad doesn’t have a signature scent to call his own, he’d likely jump at the chance to impress your mom with a manly new cologne.

8. Tools to help him get his grill on. If your dad considers himself the master of the grill, a few new accessories designed to help him make the most of his skills might be the perfect present. Spatulas, serving plates, aprons, marinades and spices are all fair game.

9. A beach kit. If your dad enjoys nothing more than a relaxing day by the shore, a beach kit might be a great idea. A brand new cooler, a plush towel, a new swimsuit and a sunblock like Dermalogica – Daily Defense Block SPF15 are all good choices that he’ll get a lot of use out of.

10. A poker set. Does your father like to get together with his guy friends every now and then for a game of poker? If he doesn’t already have his own set of chips and a table to play on, you can bring the party to his house by supplying him with all the goods.
