The Fab Five: What’s Hot in August

The 5 Products We’re Loving This Month

A heated debate concerning what products would be named in the August-Five yielded a skin care tool you never knew you needed, an honorable mention of a pair of oldies, and some timeless fragrance goodies.
 
Just when you thought that cleansing your face alone with your bare hands would give you that clean-you-can-see feeling, we’ve upped  the ante with a skin care tool that even blows our minds – the Revitalizing Sonic Cleanser. This must for all skin care regimens is a soft-bristled cleansing device that delivers next-level cleansing results because it sloughs off dead skin cells and preps skin to better absorb other skin care products. Use this tool in conjunction with the Royal Jelly Gentle Cleansing Milk, which gently purifies and cleanses resulting in a healthy-looking complexion.   
 
Always be mistaken for the woman who cares about how she looks, just a little, by employing the help of Royal Jelly Radiance Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 – a lightweight, light to medium coverage solution that blurs imperfections for a Soft Focus finish and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the Advanced Intellishield+ and Broad Spectrum SPF 20 that is built into this luxurious liquid foundation, helps protect your skin not only from the sun, but also from environmental aggressors.   
 
Now on to the smell good portion of the program…  
 
If there’s any question as to what to give the woman who radiates opulence and sophistication - a woman who sounds a lot like you? Give her/you Special Edition JAFRA Diamonds - a scent that celebrates the sparkle and shine of the world’s most endeared gemstones – diamonds. Be mesmerized by the multi-faced design of the JAFRA Diamonds bottle, and then fall in love with the luxurious blend: hand-plucked orange blossoms that unveil a fresh feminine top note, refreshed by drops of Juicy Pear, Mandarin and Bergamot, balanced with hearty Apricot, Ginger, Patchouli, and rests with everlasting cashmere woods and sensually-rich patchouli and praline.
 
The new, modern shape of Special Edition Pastel Eau de Toilette signifies JAFRA’s commitment to meeting modernity head on with a fresh new take on a JAFRA-favorite. The newest updates include a new, contemporary shape that is less rounded than before, the glass is clear, and the berry-colored cap is an exact match to the roses on the front-facing side of the bottle.
 
To round up this month’s Fab Five celebration, we looked to the classics – two of which helped put JAFRA on the fragrance map: Risqué and JANDÉ. JANDÉ Eau de toilette is the modern woman’s nod to founder, Jan Day with its gentle reference to orchids - Jan’s favorite flower. Risqué Eau de toilette is a sensuality-driven, captivating, warm fragrance rich in floras that lingers long after its first application.  

Product Spotlight: JAFRA Royal Jelly Global Longevity Balm

The perfect addition to the Royal Jelly Ritual

If you had to choose one JAFRA product to use every day, it should be JAFRA Royal Jelly Global Longevity Balm.
 
There’s a reason why Global Longevity Balm is a JAFRA best-seller: It’s a lightweight, fast-absorbing anti-ager that works on all skin types that hydrates, firms, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines.
 
Global Longevity Balm contains JAFRA’s exclusive RoyalActive Peptide, which are amino acids that accelerate skin rejuvenation and boost your skin’s resistance to aging environmental stressors such as pollution, smog, cigarette smoke, and sun exposure, which as we know speeds up the aging process. Also included is JAFRA’s signature royal jelly, a natural bee product, which is infused with skin-important, free-radical fighting vitamins and amino acids to help you achieve more youthful and radiant skin. Lastly, this balm contains the natural emollient Manuka Honey, which is produced by bees in New Zealand to soothe and comfort taut skin.  
 
Superior clinically-proven results have shown that the infusion of natural ingredients contained in this multi-benefit balm supports your skin’s resilience at the highest level, producing the optimal results you seek.
 
The best way to include this treatment product in your Royal Jelly Ritual is after you’ve cleansed with the Royal Jelly Gentle Cleansing Milk, use the Vitamin Infusions Serum, and then apply Global Longevity Balm. Complete your newly-enhanced skin care regimen with Solar Protection Fluid for maximum sun protection.  

The Fab Five: What’s Hot in July

The 5 Products we’re Loving this Month!

It was a hard-fought battle for the top of the heap position, but five JAFRA products bubbled to the surface as ones to watch for this July:

Never have we ever been so obsessed with a brow product like Brow Pomade - a cream-to-powder formula that smoothly applies to produce naturally-defined or seriously sculpted eyebrows. With every application you’ll get smudge-free results that last in the most humid of conditions.  

The wide wide world of color cosmetics just became a little more colorful with the extended shade range of specially-designed Shades of You makeup line that meets the shade-matching needs of women everywhere. Included in this epic move to include all hues of women is a product offering that runs deep: Long Wear Makeup SPF 20 (12 shades), CC Crème Concealer (6 shades), Dark Imperfector Corrector (3 shades), Skin Balancing Pressed Powder (6 shades), and Skin Perfecting Transluscent Loose Powder (6 shades). The future is here.   

Word on the street is that the best thing about summer is Royal Jelly Solar Protection Fluid because it acts as a shield against harmful environmental hazards like pollution and UVA/UVB damage that speed up the visible signs of aging. The horror! Use this lightweight, non-sticky sunblock to not only protect your skin, but to also keep it plump and firm, while diminishing age spots. Solar Protection Fluid works seamlessly into your existing Royal Jelly skin care ritual, and should be worn all year long, rain or shine. Incidentally, the second best thing about summer is the fact that when you apply Solar Protection Fluid, you’ll have worry-free fun in the sun all season long!

Two more sun blocking solutions to consider are JAFRA Sun Face Protector Sunscreen and JAFRA Sun Body Protector Sunscreen, both with Broad Spectrum SPF 50+. Sun Face Protector’s non-greasy formula layers invisibly beneath makeup, leaves your skin feeling moisturized and velvety smooth while the antioxidant ingredients protect it from the harmful, damaging effects of the sun. It also contains Licorice Extract to help minimize discoloration. Sun Body Protector provides you with all of the same protection, but is applied below the neck!  

When a stay-cation is what your pocketbook can afford, but somewhere tropical is what your heart and mind really need, split the difference with the new enticing and fresh Tropical Dream body care trio, which includes: Body Lotion, Bath & Shower Gel, and Body Mist. Stay home and let your senses get swept away to a tropical locale with the smell of sweet pineapple, lychee with sun-kissed jasmine tropical blend found in all three products. Welcome to paradise.

Celeb Talk

Behind the scenes with ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Star’ Brittany Ishibashi

As the serious butt-kicking “Karai” in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie now in theaters, we wanted to get to know the softer side of small and big screen actress, and chic beauty, Brittany Ishibashi. This bonafide ‘product junkie’ clued us in on the one beauty trick she will never live without, and why Elmer’s Glue should never be a part of your makeup bag.
 
Q: You play the character Karai in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie in theaters now. Please describe what you think Karai's beauty philosophy is compared to your own in real life.
A: Karai has one look and she sticks with it. Her beauty philosophy is that it has to look threatening and be easy to maintain. She can't be doing touch-ups when she's trying to take over the world! I can relate to her need to have a beauty routine that is easy to maintain. As the mother of a toddler, I spend more time sweating and running around than I did pre-kids. I like a clean, chic look and prefer natural beauty products.  
 
Q: Your IMDB lists multiple credits as a TV screen actress, and now you've hit the big screen this year with 'Teenage.' Why the transition? If you had to choose, which medium do you prefer?
A: I love both film and television, I just happen to have worked a lot more in TV. I like mixing it up and doing episodic work and film- they both offer their own unique challenges. Be it TV, film, or theater, I just like getting to know a new character- it's a lot like making a new friend. 
 
Q: You've been acting since 1999 on many a set around the world. Tell us about a beauty mishap that happened either on set or in your real life and how it was fixed.
A: Oh man, the first thing that jumps to mind was during a community theater production I was doing in my late teens. I was getting ready backstage and couldn't find my eyelash glue. Our theater dressing room served as a daycare during the day, so they had a whole bin of art supplies... I thought Elmer's Glue would be a good substitute and used that to apply my false eyelashes. Whoops. I spent the better part of that night sitting with a warm towel on my eyes and slowly rubbing baby oil on my eyelashes (several of which I lost during the process)!
 
Q. What, if any beauty advice have you ever received on set or off that stays with you to this day? 
A: A makeup artist on a show I was working on lined my upper water line and changed the way I did my eyes forever! I always thought that lining the inside of your eyes made them appear smaller, but for me, if I line just the top waterline it opens everything up. Great trick for when I'm feeling super tired too! 
 
Q: If we asked you what three beauty products are in your purse right now, you'd say? What makes them special? 
A: I use an argan oil  product with SPF 45 - I'm very careful with my skin and reapply this throughout the day. I love how light (but luxurious!) it feels and how quickly it absorbs into my skin. It gives it a nice glow while also protecting it from the sun's rays! I use a sugar lip balm because it tastes delicious and feels great while conditioning my lips. I also use marajuca oil on my skin, really all over my body - on my hands, cuticles, face, toddler, everywhere!
 
Q: How do you handle film projects and being a new mom? Any plans to add more "family members?"
A: Haha, we've been getting this question a lot recently. We would definitely like to expand the family but the question is "when?" It's been tricky trying to balance the first two years of a child's life (and all of the hormonal changes) with a film/TV schedule. I was back to work a month to the day after Kai was born and luckily the creative team was very respectful and helpful throughout the whole process. I think one of the hardest parts for me has been traveling for work and negotiating the amount of time spent away from my son. I don't want to miss a thing!
 
Q: With limited time on your hands as a new mom, how have you adjusted your skin care routine so your skin remains in pristine condition?
A: The main thing I changed with my skincare routine wasn't so much time, but the products I was using. I am admittedly a "product junkie" in that I LOVE everything about beauty and skincare-- I love the way it feels, I love how it can transform, I love the packaging, haha everything! I streamlined the amount of products I use while also switching over entirely to products free from parabens, Phthalates, PEGs, and other "no-no's." 
 
Q: What tips would you share with women with and without children about how to look and feel their best when time is in short order?
A: Life is unpredictable and I've been practicing "just rolling with it." When I stress out because an unexpected appointment or demands of a toddler throw off my day, I can feel my shoulders rising, a furrow in my brow (go away wrinkles!) and my fuse is a lot shorter. That's not attractive at all. If I can take a deep breath and accept that this is how this moment is going, I soon realize that it's not the end of the world that I have no makeup on and reset my priorities. I also always make sure to carry an SPF and a CC cream in my bag, so even if I'm running around I can take a second to give myself a little protection and glow! I also always have a huge canteen of water with me and trail Mix- because no one's looking or feeling their best if they're hungry and dehydrated. 
 
Q: What kind of role are you dying to play in your next film or tv project?  
A: I would love to play another villain. Karai is the first "bad gal" I've been able to play and I've got to say- being bad is a lot of fun!
 
Q: What's next for you? 
A: I am writing a show with my sisters inspired by our childhood growing up in an Asian-American showbiz family. I'm also about to start on a new television show, but can't give it away just yet!
