Beauty Fast Fixer

Posted: Updated:

Life is crazy busy again and it is only going to move faster with the holiday season creeping up on us, so I found some fast fixing products for our beauty woes…and I’ve got stuff that works from head to toe.  See if there is something that you’ve been looking for below:

*No time for a manicure?  Try Wet n Wild Fast Dry Nail Polish for nails that dry in 60 seconds.  Plus the line offers a lot of colors with fun names like Grey’s Anatomy, Party of Five Glitters and The Wonder Yellows.  And at only $1.99 a bottle, the price is right, too.

*Need an instant hair fix?  Try Samy Professional Dry Icing Instant Re-styler which gives flat hair volume in 30 seconds.  At only $9.99 a jar at Walgreens, the price is affordable.   My teenage son especially likes this product because it works fast, is easy to use and has no scent. 

*Need a rapid plump and quick fine line remover?  Try SkinMedica TNS Line Refine.  Featuring ingredients naturally found in the body to promote a youthful complexion like tri-peptides and antioxidants.  This one costs more at $75 a box, but it has been touted by In Style Magazine as a 2010 Best Buy.

*Need help with excessive sweating?  Do your hands sweat constantly or perhaps it is your cleavage or underarms.  Dermadoctor says that they have just what the doctor ordered with the Medetate product that are medicated wipes made to control sweating with peptides and botanicals plus the Asian root ginseng helps the body cope with stress.  Available at for $48.

*Think your hair is too short for a flat iron or just want to straighten your bangs?  Try the Remington TStudio Pearl Ceramic Straightini flat iron.  Created with real fresh water pearls crushed into a fine powder, this iron also comes with a small body making it easy to style short hair and bangs.  Sells for $17.99 at

*Need to quickly cover up a scar, freckles or bruise?  Try Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer.  This stuff really covers and provides SPF 30 sunscreen.  Sells for $22 at Ulta Beauty locations.

*Need an aluminum-free deodorant that REALLY works?  After trying all different brands, I have finally found one by Tom’s that I put to the test with a mountain hike.  It works!  I especially like the Refreshing Lemongrass scent.  I found mine at Safeway.

*Need to break in new shoes fast and without the pain?  Try Band-Aid Friction Block Stick that provides an invisible friction barrier between your skin and your new shoes.  This innovative product instantly reduces new shoes rubbing on skin, so that breaking in your shoes is much more comfortable than before.  I found this new product at Safeway for around $5.

*Want to protect your family’s feet from the unwanted Athlete’s foot and other germs that lurk in the school gym or team locker rooms?  Plus you’ll go green protecting your feet with these shoes.  Try Okabashi because this made-in-America shoe line not only makes comfy waterproof flip flops that protect your feet, but they also take your worn shoes back to make new shoes when you are done with your pair.  I love that they recycle the shoes!  Plus they are endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association and sell for around $15.99 at and
