Week of: October 20, 2007

Winner: Linea-Pro Flat Irons

Why: When you're younger, it begins with Hot Tools. When you become educated, you move up to Sedu. When you've hit the absolute heavens above in've encountered Linea Pro. Complete with nano-silver technology that straightens hair so effortlessly while removing 99.5% of any bacteria that may be hiding in your strands. Heats up to 180 degrees (which can be increased to 210 for coarser hair) in 90 seconds. Wider in total plate length than other models you've become accustomed too which means you can straighten wider chunks of hair in less time. The results? No frizz, tangles, and softer, straighter hair in minutes that lasts 12+ hours longer than most other flat iron brands. These iron's left us with stick-straight, silky, and shiny hair that you (and your S.O.) will have a hard time trying not to keep running your fingers through.

Eliminates puffiness, this special formula improves the micro-circulation, strengthens the collagen and elastin layer, diminishes free radicals and helps the skin regain its natural firmness without residue.

NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30

4/14/07 Winner: NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30

Why? It's a long name for a product that looks like "just another" sunscreen and the price might make you go hmm.  But when you factor in that NIA24 has the patent on this mineral-based wonder that provides SPF 30 protection for your skin and also acts as a wrinkle + sun damage eraser, it actually adds up to be quite a bargain. Continuous, deep delivery of Pro-Niacin strengthens the skin barrier and is clinically shown to visibly improve skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation. Our testers found it to leave the skin velvety and just about the only product on the market that makes it possible to apply your makeup on top of it and not watch it all slide off in the process.

RevitaLash for longer, fuller lashes

4/07/07 Winner: RevitaLash

Why? $149.95 initially seems pretty insane to spend on an invisible bedtime eyeliner, but once you see the new lashes that thicken up your wink after using this breakthrough beauty product for a couple of weeks and your lashes start hitting your eyebrows because they're getting so long, it becomes as addicting as your cup of morning Joe. Created by Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff who wanted to give his wife a very special gift when she lost her lashes due to chemotherapy. A portion of all proceeds benefit breast cancer research initiatives. RevitaLash, which comes with a 60 day money-back guarantee, has quickly become one of our favorite picks of the entire year!

Aircraft Cosmetics Perfect Layover Powder

3/31/07 Winner: Aircraft Cosmetics

Why? It's not often we're so excited about a cosmetic line that we feel each and every product is worthy of Product of the Week, but in Aircraft's case...there isn't a dud in the bunch. However, since our criteria says we can only pick one, we're awarding it to their Perfect Layover Powder, a lightweight absorbent powder that prevents excess shine and completes your flawless face without leaving a stitch of build up behind. In a variety of sheer tones to match any complexion for world wide beauties, the powder leaves a remarkably velvet finish. It's worth mentioning that the "Some Color" shade is a spitting image for one cult 'Banane' favorite with a similar consistency, meaning one compact will last you through the summer and beyond.

Lip Protector by Dr. Michelle Copeland

3/24/07 Winner: Dr. Michelle Copeland's Lip Protector

Why? It'll make even your favorite lip balms green with envy. Not only is Dr. Copeland's Lip Protector fabulous for its' softening effects, with twice daily continued use it also helps erase those tell-tale vertical lip lines. The product stays put to protect and moisturize without slicking off like some of its' greasier competitors and contains SPF 15 to help protect while you're out and about. Lip Protector quenches even the driest of puckers and just a dab here or there goes a long way leaving no icky taste or fragrance behind. We also found it makes a fantastic primer if you're about to brush on drying longwearing lipstick too!

SkinMilk bath and body

3/17/07 Winner: SkinMilk

Why? We can't get enough of each and every product from SkinMilk's line. It has a yummy fragrance that smells like vanilla birthday cake. Each of the products including colossal bath bars, body scrubs, and anti-bacterial hand washes, are of extraordinary value at an average of $5.49 a piece and most importantly, they work! The Hand Cream (shown) quenches even the driest of hands with real milk proteins and a combination of White Pond Lily, Corn Poppy and Alfalfa extracts while another of our favorites, the Shaving Milk, allows your razor to glide effortlessly, cutting only the hair and not your skin. It rinses clean and is enriched with vitamins A, D & E to calm and soothe irritation. This is a fabulous line that gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

Watch the reaction as your cheeks turn naturally rosy, for a gorgeous glow that lasts all day. It's best to start out initially with the "less is more" theory with O-Glow which glides flawlessly and doesn't leave a funny spot in sight. Ours made us look like we'd been on the ski slopes all day - naturally flushed and radiant. It'll make you go OH! so that's how I glow too.
