SEEN ON NBC SEATTLE, NEW DAY NORTHWEST 6/13/16…  Wanting to up level your summer beauty routine with 5 brands that just launched new skincare, haircare, makeup… not to mention a beverage that will all put a “Spring” back in your step (pun intended)? Read below for my translations so you too can mesmerize and rock your summer glam from now straight through to Labor Day.

Translation: A product that works so well, you’re knocked out by the results.
BrandHair La Vie
Price: Products range from $35 to $49, and price out even lower when you purchase multiples

I have to laugh about Hair La Vie! After trying the supplements for a month, the company asked me for feedback about how well I thought the Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend works! I came back with, “this works too well!” I was K.O.’ed by the results. You wouldn’t believe how much hair growth I was experiencing after consistently using it for 30 days. I have gray roots and there in lies the proof, I needed to book my hair color appointment sooner. So IF you’re someone who is suffering from thinning hair whether due to chemo/radiation, you’re going through hair loss post a pregnancy or it’s possibly stress related… this supplement works like a charm infused with lots of biotin, horsetail and saw palmetto. The natural version of minoxidil. The best part? It’s completely natural! It will help with dry scalp, buildup and irritation while being hydrated for optimal growth. 82% reported faster hair growth and I concur! The Shampoo and Conditioner are packed with 21 natural oils, extracts, vitamins, proteins and amino acids… It works to protect the hair from the outside in not to mention your hair smells intoxicating. And the Moroccan Repair Serum is great to banish and tame frizz BUT the cadre of 7 natural ingredients was genius when I added a few drops to the back of my hands and elbows and to amp up my face moisturizer, great bonus!!   The backstory is this supplement was conceived by the lovely Carla Rivas, a pro hair dresser who lost her hair after winning an intense battle with cervical cancer. Her goal was to change the face of the hair care industry one bottle of Hair La Vie at a time and she’s doing it! She stands by her message with these natural product AND by donating roughly 10% of Hair La Vie’s profits to foundations like Global Fund for Women and Save the Children.

Jenny With The Good Skin
Translation: A fun spin on Beyonce’s popular “Becky with the good hair!” Simply put a gal with a glowing complexion!
Brand: Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Serum
Price: $41 SAVE 10% Use Code “HoneyTV”

The Internet is blowing up with “glowing” feedback about Hey Honey’s newest anti aging face serum. So this got me to investigate the hype. Turns out the Good Morning Honey Silk Serum is a silky, light and luxurious moisturizing serum that can multi task as a makeup primer! It’s been formulated to work on all skin types. You can wear it solo or layer it under a face moisturizer. Rich hydrators and nutrients such as honey, silk amino acids, sea buckthorn oil, and Vitamin E impart intense moisture which results in radiantly silky smooth skin. If you want to be a “Jenny With The Good Skin” this serum is the beauty tool you need to land a glow back onto your complexion this summer.

Thoroughbred 🐎
Translation: A really handsome, well groomed dude. “I would love Will to ask me out! He’s a total Thoroughbred!”
Brand: Heff Man
Price: $20
It’s a fact that the dudes in our lives are not likely to dip into our skincare products no matter how awesome they work, but for ladies we have no scruples. We’re no dummies, we use whatever delivers results. So I’m blown away (pun intended here) with my little discovery of Heff!  It’s a repair treatment moisturizer for literally everything a man can contend with and it translates nicely over to ladies too:

  • Split or cut fingers
  • Dry, cracked heels and feet
  • Rough dry hands
  • Rough dry elbows and knees
  • Flaky skin conditions anywhere on the body
  • Skin irritations
  • Razor bumps
  • Burns

No matter what activity, a guy takes to the extreme and winds up with some body trauma/drama Heff is a smart solution that belongs in your gym bag, camping gear or tool box. Interestingly it’s used and approved by U.S. Special Forces and these discerning souls want something that powerfully absorbs instantly, isn’t greasy nor waxy and is a one-stop shop and catch all! At $20 dollars it makes a great Father’s Day gift. And the brand’s owner assured me IF you order it today, they will be sure to ship it out to you so you have it in time for Father’s Day THIS Sunday!

Happy Hour
Translation: Anywhere else “Happy Hour” means tossing back as many discounted cocktails as possible… but this is Seattle so it translates to downing as many cold pressed juices, smoothies and flavored waters as possible.
Brand: Aloe Gloe Organic Aloe Water
Price: $2.49 per bottle
Shop: Available on as well as in select grocery stores nationwide including Safeway, Ralphs, and Vons
Why do the summer months always inspire us to make healthier choices? It might be linked to having to sport a bathing suit at moments throughout these few months? At any rate, as you aspire to a lifestyle of heath and sustainability this brand shares these values with you. Aloe Gloe is locally sourced in North America and produced in California. The Organic Aloe Vera is delicately harvested to retain the bioactive components of the Aloe Vera plant’s inner leaf. It contains more than 200 biologically active amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes and minerals! Comes in 4 flavors and helps with digestion, skin glow and overall health/immunity.

Translation: A good looking gal. Betty is referring to Betty Grable the famous pin up girl from the 40s! “Hey look at that Betty over there on the lounge chair! She’s a beauty.”
Brand: Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
Price: $14.95
Shop: drugstores nationwide &

A big trend in beauty is packing anti aging ingredients into color cosmetics you would never think have them and you typically wear AM to PM. It makes total sense and Physicians Formula, to me, are the leaders in this innovation not to mention, are known for being America’s #1 bronzing brand. Their new Butter Bronzer is a luxurious face treat infused with a powerful blend of: Brazilian Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, all from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. The essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins work together to soften, condition and moisturize skin so you have lasting hydration. PF also packed in ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and deliver a gorgeous bronze finish. So what you’re experiencing is a combo of the best features of a powder bronzer AND a cream bronzer, plus 3 hydrating butters that deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow unlike any other. It won’t clog pores and is a fit for even the most sensitive skin types. It comes in two different bronze shades and is gluten free, hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved
