Now that the warmer weather is upon us, those with curly hair that tends to get frizzy (like me) will love Rowenta’s Infinity Pro Dryer. The salon-quality dryer with extra long cord has a built-in ionic generator that dries hair 20 percent faster that results in a smooth, shiny and frizz-free result. We put the 1875W powerful dryer from the expertise line to the test and loved our super sleek sheen locks. There are two speeds and three heat settings so the dryer provides 35 percent more airflow, which results in a faster drying time for you. The best part of it all just might be its automatic on/off sensor and professional AC motor that will last up to 1,600 hours. To get a super straight look, be sure to check out the Straight Express Iron that delivers millions of pure negative ions for beautiful shine and reduced styling time.

Now that your hair looks great, it’s time to think about your skin. We love Amala’s natural and organic skin care line, which just launched a new Brighten Collection, which is designed to tighten skin and leave it with a brighter tone. The key ingredient is Narcissus, combining the extract of the flower, known for its antioxidant properties, with that of its bulb, which helps slow down synthesis of melanin, the skin pigment that leads to dark spots, to help restore youthful luminosity. We love the Brightening Treatment Cream, which exfoliates and protects skin from damaging free radicals while reducing discolorations and improving tone and texture. For maturing skin, be sure to try the ReJUVENATe collection inspired by the fruits and plants of the Amazon. Get your facial ritual started with the Cleansing Milk, which includes organic rose water and organic jojoba oil, to gently and thoroughly remove dirt and makeup. Our skin was left feeling smooth and clean. For a deeper clean, try the Face Polish, which seemed to take years off our skin almost immediately. The super effective age-defying face polish has two skin-smoothing exfoliators to remove dead skin cells and restore a youthful complexion. For more information, visit www.amalabeauty.com.

Everyone has been waiting for the movie “The Great Gatsby” to come out and now that it is here, it’s time to get whisked away by TOCCA’s newest floral fragrance Liliana.
