Introducing Clinique Medical

Allergan (global medical aesthetics company) and Clinique have come together and developed Clinique Medical. This skin care line is “scientifically-designed and clinically-proven to complement select in-office cosmetic procedures and available only through skin care physicians’ offices.” The Clinique Medical Optimizing Regimen Kit is a skin care system helps improve the skin’s receptivity to the benefits of selected procedures such as laser skin resurfacing (e.g. IPL treatments), chemical peels such as 30% TCA peels and microdermabrasion.

Large Wine Rack ($59.99) This could be a really sophisticated way of storing a lot of bottles. I look at all of the different hair products I have milling about in my bathroom, and wine racks seem like they just might be a great way to store them all. Especially if I lived in my own house and used a mountable wine rack! But even so, if you have some under-the-sink room, this could fit nicely and keep things within reach. I like this particular one because the bottles can be shorter and various sizes without falling out. By the way, if you find a CD rack like this? Use it for lipgloss!

Colour-coordination: this comprehensive makes it work! Designed to play-up the most potent and powerful accessory a girl has: her hair. The complete opposite of contrivance – this is simplicity itself. So basic it’s brilliant!
