October's Beauty Picks are In!

October is here and that fall weather is beginning to make its debut! As the weather starts to cool and feel a little more dry, you'll probably start to feel it in your skin. Keeping your skin hydrated is particularly important this time of the year, since it's a little easier to forget to drink enough water between hot chocolates and pumpkin spice lattes. This month, we're putting the luxury back into your beauty routine and keeping your skin hydrated and healthier. Check out what we're inviting everyone to use this October.

This fall, don't just take ordinary showers. Turn your regular shower experience into a personal spa retreat with L'Occitane's Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil with Almond Oil. The instant this shower oil touches water it turns into a rich, moisturizing foam that leaves your skin incredibly soft and smooth. Made with a blend of nourishing oils that consist of Almond, Grape, Coconut and Apricot, as well as Shea Butter, this shower oil is a must-have for both men and women alike. All it takes is a tiny drop on your loofah for you to form a generous lather. Follow it up with any of L'Occitane's other Almond products for an ultimate shower and bath experience. 

Eyelash and Brow Extensions now offered at Planet Beauty Bluffs

Exciting news, Newport Beach babes! Our Planet Beauty location at the Bluffs is now offering permanent lash extensions as well as semi-permanent brow extensions. Flaunting beautiful, full lashes and brows are all the rage right now and can really enhance your eyes and face. For anyone who doesn't have naturally long lashes or anyone with thin brows, extensions are game-changers.

If you're tired of struggling to fill your brows or wearing falsies every day, consider booking an appointment with Myra Jimenez at Planet Beauty Bluffs. If you're wondering how brow extensions work, this revolutionary technique recreates the natural look and feel of brows. Through art and science, semi-permanent adhesive and human hair are used to mimic natural growing brow hair. A delicate process, brow hair is carefully attached to existing individual hair, placing it directly on skin one hair at a time. Being gentle with extensions is key for longevity, but a professional application can last up to three weeks. For maintenance, it is recommended to stop in every two weeks for a fill. The shredding process of extensions is very unnoticeable, too. 

If you do decide to book an appointment, Myra is currently offering 10% for first-time  clients who want a full set of lash and brow extensions. If you refer someone else for a full set of extensions, you will also receive 50% off your fill. Myra is a licensed esthetician who is certified and experienced in lash and brow extensions. Check out some of her beautiful work and book your appointment today!

Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment: New from Perricone

There's a new cleansing treatment in town and it's going to change the way you think about cleansing on the go. If you travel a lot, or you love getting that A.M daily workout, then you know how hard it can be to get a good, quick cleanse that leaves your skin feeling fresh. No-rinse cleansers can be extremely convenient for the person constantly on the go. Dr. Perricone's Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment offers convenience, but also gives your skin a gentle exfoliation and amazing glow.

When I first heard there was going to be another Blue Plasma product, I was so excited. The Blue Plasma treatment is a product I'm always recommending and personally use, as well. If you're currently using the Blue Plasma treatment, you'll want to add this to your skincare regimen. I recently tried a sample and was impressed with how well it removed my makeup without drying my face.

Anti-aging Treatments at Home With NuFace
