2012 saw a lot of great beauty products introduced to us and even some that confused us (BB creams vs. CC creams anyone?). Some beauty products were a bit weird (caviar manicures?) while others were welcomed with open arms. Either way 2012 was a great year for beauty products and we can only hope 2013 has some more to offer. Here is a list of some (not all) of the best beauty inventions of 2012.
BB Creams & CC Creams: First came BB then came CC. Depending on your skin type either cream provides multiple benefits including hydrating the skin, concealing fine lines and fighting the effects of aging. Don’t want to decide which is best for your skin? Use Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Cream which contains enzymes that gives you the same effects to rejuvenate your skin like glycolic acid would but without all the side effects.
2012, the year of the nail: No more spending hours at the salon. Instead use Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips an over the counter kit that allows you to give yourself an at home manicure using nail stickers and chip-resistant polish. Safer for your nails than a regular gel manicure also.
Give your hair the attention it deserves: Many new fly by night products are always being introduced promising the benefits of great hair but honestly very few deliver. 2012 saw the emergence of The Coolway System, a new flatiron that can read your hair’s moisture and heats up to the correct temperature. No more guessing! Prefer curls over straight hair? TopStyler’s ceramic clips are less damaging than curling irons making curling hair easier and less frizzy.
Give your hair the attention it deserves (Part II): Take care of your tresses with Pantene Expert Collection AgeDefy Advanced Thickening Treatment. This treatment uses caffeine to strengthen and thicken your hair. Want to keep split ends at bay? Use TreSemme Split Remedy Split End Sealing Serum which not only smoothes your split ends but actually helps restore and repair your hair after just three uses.
For the makeup lovers: Remember mood rings? Well Physicians Formula released their pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss that follows the same concept of the mood ring. Apply it to your lips and it changes according to your body chemistry. Hate when your eyeshadow disappears halfway through the day? Change to L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow as it stays on longer without losing its pigment . Hate wearing foundation because well, you just can’t seem to get it right? Not a problem anymore with the Romi Digital Foundation that smoothes and blends foundation on your face in one sweep.
