The founder of ELI Colour is a gentleman by the name of Max Eli. Max’s vision was to create the latest technology of hair color, one that would be safe and able to lift dark shades into blonde. Changing from dark to light hues is the most popular color switch in the world and also the most difficult to achieve due to the unnatural lifting from dark to light.

It is rare that unnatural blondes get the color they desire due to the potency of the dark color. It’s nothing new that bleaching is the worst treatment our hair can receive; yet stylists all around the world use it to this day. The more competent ones however will use other methods of lifting color, which most often results in a shade of blonde that is hard to predict, producing some reddish, yellow or even ginger tones. Max created a better system, now popular both in Americas and Europe. Eli Colour offers 90 shades, 14 of which are blonde. His colors include MaxBond Technology, which protects hair from damaging and MaxBase+, which allows to lift five levels in just one application. One of the top pro Eli Colour professionals is a Beverly Hills stylist Patricia Lynn Laas. Contact Patricia for tips and tricks on all color, styling and treatment: www.patricialynnlaas.com

Goodwipes are made to “replace” a shower for those on the go. Travelsized and individually wrapped, they are larger than the average baby wipes and make-up removers. My favorite part is that I can use one after the gym if I’m pressed on time and must hurry back to the office. They fit into an average-sized pocket, are alcohol free and 100% flushable. It’s hard to believe body wipes fit into such a compact packet. Goodwipes come in different varieties for guys and ladies.

Don’t be misled by its name; Lip Injection is a lip gloss and its purpose is to replace an invasive and at times unsafe procedure commonly known as lip injections. This gloss won’t be as long term as the real thing, but it does show results. Its formula contains chili powder extract, which gives a tingling sensation. The purpose of the extract is to draw blood to the lips, making them look and feel plumper. Make sure your lips aren’t dry as it may sting a little more than it should. Kissing may also cause your partner to feel the tingling sensation. This gloss will also improve the texture of the lips over time by adding moisture. The extra drawn blood in the lips will make their color more intense, so your lipstick can take a break.
