Beauty-Breakthroughs-Image.jpgWe try out different products every day, and while we love many of them, they don’t all fall into the category of a beauty breakthrough. But these five products are so different than everything else on the market, there’s just no other way to describe them! Below, the products that are changing the face of beauty right now.

Sarah Potempa’s Beachwaver
While we’ve always had trouble mastering a curling iron, this one—developed by celebrity stylist Sarah Potempa—makes things super easy. The barrel rotates as it curls and even has left and right buttons so you can easily control the side you’re curling. Voila: perfect, beachy waves every time.

Boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++
Moisturizer. Foundation. Sunscreen. Want to only use one product instead of all three? This is it. B.B. creams are the new cool kid on the block when it comes to skincare, and with the ability to nourish, hydrate, protect and give color to the skin, it’s certainly easy to see why.

Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Weightless Conditioning Shake Conditioner
We’re always putting way too many products into our hair—shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, serum, heat protectant. But with this bottle, the dual phase formulation (white liquid and blue liquid that mix together when shaken) conditions and protects your hair from heat styling in one fell swoop.

Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste
Usually, we don’t really think whitening toothpastes do all that much. But this one, which is infused with Bluverite technology to instantly give the impression of whiter teeth, tastes great and really does make teeth appear whiter and brighter almost instantly. Say goodbye to coffee and wine stains.

Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System
We’ve long been fans of Clarisonic, and this new sonic cleanser is no different. Two speeds, a pulsing timer that lets you know when it’s time to switch cleansing positions, and a handy carrying case make this our new favorite member of the Clarisonic family.

I simply cannot decide if I’m in favor of, or opposed to Ciara’s two-tone hair. On the one hand, she looks like she has forgotten to keep up with her haircolor. But on the other, I like the edgy and fun nature of the style. One thing is for sure, not everyone can pull of this look! Celebs definitely have the upper hand, who would really believe that Ciara stepped out on the red carpet with this look without intending it? To pull this off you have to pay close attention to upkeep — I know ironic given it’s “growing-out-haircolor” look — but you can’t let roots lose their deep, dark sheen and the ends have to be a stark contrast in color. What do you think, does Ciara have a hit hairstyle on her hands? Or will this one be forgotten before Easter?
Benefit-They're-Real-Mascara.jpgLashes that are longer, curlier and more lush than ever? We didn’t think it was possible … until we discovered Benefit They’re Real! Mascara.

We’re always on the hunt for a mascara that will make us look like we’re wearing false lashes, and this one definitely does the trick. With just one coat, our lashes are thicker and longer. We don’t even need a lash curler, because it makes our lashes much curlier, too.

We love it in black for a little bit of extra pop. One thing’s for certain: it’s pretty hard not to get people to take notice of your lashes when you wear this mascara!

Benefit They’re Real! Mascara retails for $22 at
Just about everyone could benefit from a little wash of color across their cheeks. Applied correctly, blush gives you just the right amount of healthy glow. Half the battle is the application, the other half is the shade … mark All the Highlights Soft Glow Illuminator solves both issues at one time. The color is universal, just about anyone who wears it will get the right amount of glow and blush out of it. And because of its universal shade, and illuminator style it also applies fairly easily and lightly, ensuring you look done right and not overdone.

Pantene-Ice-Shine-Shampoo-Conditioner.jpgIf you want to get super shiny hair, we’ve got a great duo for you. You simply have to check out Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.

Your hair will be shiny, lustrous and amazingly manageable after just one use. We love how much lather is created with the shampoo, while the conditioner is rich and thick and coats each strand unbelievably well.

We were happy to find that while we usually have to shampoo our hair twice, this shampoo is so rich it only needs to be done once! We haven’t found a shampoo that does this in quite some time.

So if you want your hair to shine with the best of them, be sure to try this shampoo and conditioner. Why not get a little icy?

Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Shampoo and Conditioner are $6.99 each at
