If you’re hoping to get a svelte body like Mila Kunis’, the likelihood is you won’t be able to with a single body salve alone, even if it is Rodial’s Body Sculpture Cream—which is why the UK has banned ads for the product featuring the Black Swan star in the buff, citing “deceptive” marketing techniques.

Wrangler is indeed serious about its new line of jeans that moisturize your legs while you wear them—so serious, they’ve hired a spokesmodel for the Denim Spa range: Lizzie Jagger. [Contact Music]

Live! With Kelly and Michael star Kelly Ripa has revealed that she gets Botox injections every seven months so her eyelid skin rests on her eyelashes. “I feel like [Botox] makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now,” she explains.

Missoni, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Liberty of London—Target has made a success of creating affordable variations of big-name (and big price tag) designer favorites. And while its expertise has thus far been predominantly limited to fashion and home goods, the retail giant is about to dip its toes into prestige beauty in a major way. Beginning this weekend, Target stores will be stocked with Nip+Fab, the mass version of Maria Hatzistefanis’ upscale U.K. skincare brand Rodial. Much like its originator, Nip+Fab focuses not only on transforming the face but also the body (Rodial’s nonsurgical line of topical wonder creams like its Tummy Tuck and Body Sculpture are its claim to fame). Highlights from the 14-piece premiere are the Dry Leg Fix, a super-rich panacea for weather-worn gams; the Dark Circle Fix, a hydrating puffiness reducer that helps make up for sleepless nights; and the Sheer Makeup Fix, a wondrous little multitasker that smooths skin, plumps lines, and evens out blotchiness. (Editor’s note: It also makes a great primer underneath makeup). Seeing as how nothing in the range will set you back more than $20, we’d highly recommend indulging in all three.
Nip+Fab, available at select Target stores beginning October 23.
Rodial is nothing if not on point. In these days of plastic surgery proliferation, the U.K.-based luxury skincare brand has developed a following for its effective topical treatments designed to slim, trim, firm, and smooth skin without going under the knife. The latest addition to its popular collection of mix-and-drink powder sticks are the Glamtox Sticks, ingestible collagen-boosting extracts and peptides that have their roots in Japan, where collagen drinks are popular for maintaining a line-free, radiant complexion. When your collagen production starts to slow as you age, drinking it is the next best thing to receiving it by injection (a road we are not quite ready to travel down), and the Japanese are first-in-class when it comes to certain beauty techniques (aside from flawless skin, nobody does nail art better). The Rodial version, now available at select Nordstrom stores, comes with 14 individual-sized packets to be mixed with water, enough for two weeks’ worth of moisture-boosting and face-smoothing power. You can also speed up the process by taking two packets a day to see results in a week, if you’re prepping for a big event. And they taste…OK. The berry flavoring is not too sweet or overpowering but is still ever-so-slightly reminiscent of children’s medicine. Regardless, we’re a few days in and the effects—psychosomatic as they may be—already appear to be taking shape. Bottoms up!
Beating the bloat during the holidays is tough, but not impossible. Sure, you could lay off the turkey, the stuffing, the myriad side dishes that will be at your disposal, or you could indulge in the great American tradition of overconsumption—and then let Rodial do damage control. The nonsurgical line of topical wonder creams brings you Tummy Tuck and Body Sculpture in this, your time of need, so that you can eat, drink, and be merry without the guilt. With fig extracts to break down fat cells and neuropeptides to boost cell metabolism by stimulating activity akin to your body’s natural response to exercising, Tummy Tuck can help tighten and reduce the abdominal area, while the biomarine actives, wheat protein, and caffeine in Body Sculpture work together to smooth out cellulite. You’ll have to wait about eight weeks to see results, but at least you’ll be able to start the New Year off right—toned and fully maxed out on pumpkin pie.
Every once in a while, when you realize that the combined cost of your skincare regimen and makeup bag contents could support an entire family less fortunate than you are—let alone pay your rent for a month—slathering on that pre-bedtime, deluxe cellular antiaging complex becomes a little more, well, complex. Investing in your own personal appearance doesn’t have to be a totally selfish affair, though. For the month of September, Rodial, the luxe U.K. skincare line famous for effective topical products on par with a trip to the plastic surgeon’s office, will donate a portion of U.S. sales from their best-selling Glam Balm to Five & Alive, an organization that prevents and treats malaria, waterborne illness, pneumonia, and malnutrition in children under five. So in addition to a multitasking wonder balm that plumps lips, erases fine lines, nourishes hands, tames flyaways, soothes sunburn, and strengthens nails—all in one bottle—you’ll also get a good helping of altruism. It’s really a win-win.
