News in brief: La Roche–Posay shows Anthelios and My UV Patch innovations; stand-outs from ISPA press event

Lucire staff/19.38



While summer may be just around the corner in the northern hemisphere and folks Down Under are heading toward cooler temperatures, French dermatologist-based skin care brand La Roche–Posay is spreading the word about the importance of year-round sun protection with their SOS, Save Our Skin, campaign. Atop a high-rise overlooking bustling downtown Los Angeles, media attendees enjoyed a breakfast seminar while discovering their most recent Anthelios sun care innovations and the new pioneering My UV Patch. Available in stores in June, the patch is the first stretchable skin sensor designed to monitor UV exposure. The Patch has photosensitive dyes that change colour when exposed to UV rays. Using a scanner-equipped cellphone and La Roche–Posay’s app, you can find out your personalized level of exposure and get advice on what to do to protect your skin this summer.
   La Roche–Posay’s Skinchecker 2·0 video (see below) takes full advantage of our culture’s love of viral animal videos to get an important message across.
   Just a few miles down the road at the ultra-posh Montage Beverly Hills, the International Spa Association hosted their annual press event showcasing spas and resorts that not only pamper the body, but nurture the spirit and promote holistic health and wellness. While indulging in selected mini-treatments, attendees learned about each brand’s latest offering and unique philosophy. Though too numerous too mention, we thought there were a few stand-outs.
   The raw grandeur of Crystal Lake is the setting of Reno’s Atlantis Resort Spa, which features a Brine Inhalation Light Therapy Lounge and a whole body healing Rasul Ceremonial Chamber.
   On the banks of a sacred river in Wisconson, the Aspira Spa takes guests on a quest of mind and spirit. Their spa is a place of profound harmony with customized light and sound therapy and bathing experiences. You can even get a mani-pedi beside a crackling fire gazing under a starlit sky.

News in brief: Lands’ End Sport launches three lines; Jane Iredale quad bronzers redesigned

Lucire staff/13.35


Lands’ End has extended its brand into a Sport line, which the company says is in line with its founder Gary Comer’s ethos. Comer had invested in developing the Comer Center in Dodgeville, Wisc. in 1989 to promote employee health and wellness.
   Lands’ End Sport includes surf, performance and athletic collections for men and women. The company notes its surf collection is functional and fashionable: rash guards are UPF 50 when wet; neoprene jackets have flatlock seams to prevent chafing; and full suits are made with bonded neoprene to protect the body from irritants. The performance collection comprises three categories: speed (high-impact), studio (low-impact), and street (post-workout wear), again with functional features for moisture wicking in the cases of the first two. Finally, the athletic collection, dubbed Athleisure, comprises polos, T-shirts, sweatshirts, totes and accessories.
   In other news, Jane Iredale’s quad bronzers have been redesigned for summer. Rose Dawn (pink and copper shades), Sunbeam (cool pink and bronze shades), and Moonglow (warm, golden shades) are now more portable, and can be easily applied all over or on cheeks, eyes and even lips. The quad bronzers are formulated with antioxidant protection from pine bark and pomegranate extracts. Each quad retails for £34; the empty compact at £12.

Indie Beauty Expo (IBE): Hollywood’s “independents’ day”

Elyse Glickman/14.23



Clinique, Lancôme and L’Oréal may have been staples on our vanity tables for decades, but there is something about trying the best invention nobody’s heard of yet. The Indie Beauty Expo (IBE), staged at the the Shrine Expo Hall (best known as a venue for rock concerts and award ceremonies) was the place beauty bloggers needed to be to Tweet, Instagram and buzz about the latest and greatest skin, body care, and make-up maverick brands around the globe.
   The Shrine Expo Hall, under the direction of co-founder Jillian Wright (whose client roster includes Kim Kardashian, Ivana Trump and Kristen Wiig) was a feminine garden of delights. The harvest of fresh picks ran the gamut from colour cosmetics to hair care, professional spa lines, anti-ageing remedies, exotic indulgences (of the do-it-yourself home spa variety), vitamin supplements, fragrances and a smattering of gadgets designed to make the daily beauty routine cleaner and more sanitary (Potty Mints, for example, and Spongelle Spongelle Beyond Cleansing soaps, regulars at Doris Bergman’s always fabulous awards season parties).
   While many attendees are not old enough in our estimation to consider and compare the benefits of different anti-ageing remedies, we agree it never hurts to learn what’s out there and start spreading the news!* And with that, we present our picks for the most interesting and innovative goods in this garden among the 150 brands on display (twice as many as 2015, according to sources behind the event).
   Given current beauty trends, we saw a lot of organic oils and locally harvested products, bringing the farm-to-table mood from the restaurant to the vanity table. From argan to moringa, the event was a wellspring of beautifying oil, and with so many new brands vying for our attention, it was inevitable that a few stood out from the pack.

· Be Biotin, bebiotin.com.
· Circ-Cell, designed by a Wyoming entrepreneur for the rigours of mercurial weather: we think this line could be come more relevant in the wake of global warming.
· Cosmedicine: they had us with the rose-flavoured macarons, but we also admired the simply packaged, and user-friendliness of the product designs.
· Crème Collective: move over, Estée Lauder conglomerate! This line brings together definitively 21st century brands including Rituel de Fille.
· Florapy: conceived in California and made in Korea, this line of therapy facial masks (some for emotional well being and others for facial improvements) are made with organic coconut.
· Georgie Beauty: smaller is better, and this line for eyes is as focused as things get, with organic lashes, glues and liners. The founder is now making a portable cream blush, but she knows what she’s looking at in terms of the audience she hopes to reach.
· Glisodin Skin Nutrients: a collection of elaborately well thought-out vitamins and nutritional supplements that stress the importance of beauty from the inside out.
· Kesh: we love argan oil, as well as the direct pitch behind the line’s elegant packaging.
· Meder Beauty Science USA: we admire the way this Swiss line connects the dramatic results of professional in-office treatments with post-treatment home care.
· The Miracle Cream: many companies produce miracles in a jar, but we’re looking forward to testing out this all-body, all purpose cream with its blend of essential oils.
· MSteves: a few years ago, we covered the launch of Mally Steves Chakola’s sweet and simple rose hip oil-focused line, and are pleased she is still going strong.
· Native Atlas Botanical Skincare, handcrafted in small batches with ethically sourced materials gathered from all over the globe. The built-in plant-sourced vitamins and minerals nurture the mind, body, and spirit. Our pick from the line is the Liquid Exfoliant, which helps to refine and restore a clear complexion with blend of black willow and thyme and has been shown to enhance skin cell turnover.
· Nelson J Beverly Hills: one of our favourite local salon owners and colourists launches his own hair care line.
· Pacifica: the packaging is lust-worthy—we admit it. We look forward to trying the to-go make-up removers.
· Patyka, a renowned Parisian beauty house, converted old-school French luxury into exciting new ideas with certified organic formulations, making it the expo’s most elegant offering. The Huile Absolue Skin Booster Serum is the brand’s signature product. The 100 per cent natural serum for face, body and hair is carefully formulated with a powerful concentrate of 12 organic essential oils and plant extracts which effectively help regenerate new skin cells, boost the skin’s youthful resilience and restore a radiant glow.
· Revival Body Care: this collection brings the carefree, feelgood vibes and aromas of the beach anywhere with their collection of scrubs.
· Scentered: many companies are packaging perfectly lovely essential oils, but we love the way this UK company takes the concept to the next level, putting balanced blends into a solid, spill-proof and goof-proof format.
· UnWash turns the shampoo ritual on its head, with the conditioning step coming first.
· Ursa Major: simple, no-nonsense skin care for men and women with bracing aromas.
· Volanté Skincare: many product lines are promising clinic-like results at home, but we were impressed with how well prepared founder Elizabeth Vanderveer was in presenting the befores and afters with her products.
· Yuni is absolute genius. While the line was devised for active people who integrate workouts into their busy day, it is also ideal for transcontinental fliers and workaholics. Pop-up sheets, lotions and muscle relaxers allow you to feel fresh at a moment’s notice. It’s almost like having your entire home bathroom with you. All products combine natural ingredients, modern convenience, and mood-enhancing attributes into some very unique products. The No Rinse Body Cleansing Foam really caught our eye—a waterless solution to instantly refresh and foam away sweat, dirt and odour when you’re in a rush or a shower isn’t available. A blend of neem extract and alœ vera vanishes instantly with no rinse needed. Skin feels pristine and soft. A light aromatic blend of calming essential oils releases stress.—Elyse Glickman, US west coast editor, and Jody Miller, correspondent

* New York beauty sleuths will have their opportunity to survey a variety of emergent beauty brands and products on August 25 at the Waterfront in Manhattan. For more information, visit indiebeautyexpo.com/attend.

A Billion Lives has world première in New Zealand, revealing powerful forces aiding the tobacco industry

Jack Yan/11.16

Those of us outside the vaping world have probably looked at e-cigarettes, wondering why on earth these could be better for your health. Or we may have thought they were a fad, since the only people I knew who vaped were tech hipsters, who enjoyed vaping as though it was a matter of course, and nothing to be curious about—thereby keeping their habit a closed shop. But then, perhaps they were tired of repeating themselves, and had settled into being comfortable with their e-cigs.
   A Billion Lives is a documentary that takes a look into this world, but it does so much more. The title refers to the number of people who can be saved if they give up smoking, but there are powerful forces at play to ensure that people don’t. And those forces have ensured that there is misinformation about vaping and the potential for the technology to save lives.
   Filmmaker Aaron Biebert, who directed and narrated the film which had its world première in Wellington as part of the Doc Edge Festival, journeyed to 13 countries on four continents to find similar patterns worldwide: here is a life-saving technology of e-cigarettes, but governments were banning them or fining citizens over their use, ignoring the science and deciding to be complicit with the tobacco industry in keeping people addicted to a harmful product. Instead, governments spend money spreading lies about e-cigarettes, calling them a gateway to cigarettes, or that one could get formaldehyde poisoning, claims that the film demonstrably refutes. E-cigarettes are not completely safe, and the film acknowledges that, but they have proven to be a successful tool to help those giving up smoking, especially where mainstream solutions have failed.
   In his own country, the US, Biebert points out that governments collect far more revenue from cigarette taxation than from several industries combined, and have no real incentive to cut off the flow of dollars. E-cigarettes, which were invented by pharmacist Hon Lik in China, were conceived as a way to give up smoking, and have been successful for 30 million people around the world. A Billion Lives points out that nicotine is not what causes lung cancer, and that the US Surgeon-General has said as much. What are harmful are the tar and 4,000 chemicals in modern cigarettes. It equates nicotine with coffee in terms of addictiveness, and the figure of 95 per cent less harmful than a typical cigarette featured prominently in the film. Vaping essentially allows one to get the pleasure of nicotine without the harm of the tar and toxins.
   Yet as a society, we have come to equate nicotine as being the evil, addictive substance, and that’s no accident.
   This point is made halfway into the film, with a good part of the first section looking into the history of cigarettes (Flintstones sponsor announcements for Winston cigarettes elicited laughs from the audience), and David Goerlitz, the Winston male model from the 1980s, being a particularly effective interviewee, discussing how he went from a smoking advocate earning millions to having a crisis of conscience when his brother developed lung cancer and died. Goerlitz went to the other side, and became a high-profile spokesman who was able to talk in plain language just what governments, Big Tobacco, and Big Pharma (which sells patches and gum, and would like to continue doing so) were doing. Health professionals were being marketed to far more than the public, permitting Big Pharma to continue to sell its products, the film notes.
   Biebert was able to get other interviewees at a very high level, including Dr Derek Yach, the former executive director of the World Health Organization, and Dr Delon Human, former president of the World Medical Association, among others, speaking plainly about how lives could be saved through vaping e-cigarettes, a tool which could get smokers to kick their habit.
   Meanwhile, the pro-smoking side was represented through historical clips—you get the feeling that we had only touched the surface of what was out there, with corporations spending thousands of millions to fund biased studies and get on to our airwaves.
   Beautifully shot and scored, this independently funded feature tells a story about our times and just why so many citizens today are wary of their governments and multinational corporations. Those who oppose global trade agreements, for instance, do not do so in isolation—and while A Billion Lives takes no political side, it does tap into the Zeitgeist of our modern suspicion about what is on our airwaves and what are the motives behind it. Like Adam Curtis, whose documentaries seek to explain the complex in simple terms, Biebert has done the same, narrating and directing, although he appears on camera as well when narrative gaps need to be plugged. He is an honest, frank speaker, and gives the film a personal touch.
   Young smokers who tried e-cigarettes were often people who already smoked and saw them as a way to give up their addiction, and most, Biebert pointed out in a post-screening Q&A, were not even using nicotine in their e-cigarettes.
   Yet the state of California, where Biebert is based, spent $75 million telling us about the evils of e-cigarettes, said the director in his Q&A; while in the film, he points out that US federal funds were being illegally used for lobbying activities. The American Lung Association had deceived the public, too, notes Biebert, who told the audience, ‘If you get powerful charities on side, you can do anything.’ The increasing restrictions on e-cigarettes in the US, the subject of federal lawsuits, was equated to ‘Prohibition II’.
   Dr Marewa Glover of End Smoking NZ, who introduced the film at its première, said that young people were using e-cigarettes as a way round peer pressure, when people in their circle smoked.
   However, Australia has already banned e-cigarettes, with one interviewee, Vince, who sold them, telling a story about being raided by authorities and now faces losing his home as he fought the government on principle. He believed firmly he was saving lives. There are massive fines for vaping in Brunei and Hong Kong. There were restrictions in New Zealand, too, noted Glover, although those who sought to misinform were technically in breach of the country’s health legislation.
   Biebert says he is neither a smoker nor a vaper; but all good documentary-makers, he had a commitment to get the right information out there. He acknowledges that vapers have not given themselves the best image, either, and that A Billion Lives can only be one small part of getting the truth out.
   ‘We need to cut the head off the monster,’ said Biebert, ‘and the monster is being funded by big business. We need more than the movie. People need to get the right information.’
   He added, ‘The truth ends up winning. Even condoms were illegal in the US at one time.’
   A Billion Lives will begin making its way to other countries. The website is at abillionlives.com, while the movie’s Instagram is at abillionlivesfilm.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Online retailer Swimsuitsforall, which specializes in superior, well fitting swimwear for curvy women, has launched its summer campaign, hashtagged #MySwimBody.
   Modelled by Sports Illustrated 2016 Swimsuit Issue cover girl Ashley Graham, activist and model Philomena Kwao, 56-year-old silver fox Nicola Griffin, photographer and mother Jessica Lavoie, and professional athlete and Olympian Amanda Bingson, the campaign kicks off with a video, designed to make women feel empowered, removing the dread many feel when shopping for swimwear.
   Swimsuitsforall wants to encourage women to share a photo of themselves on social media with the #MySwimBody hashtag, proudly showing off their curves, challenge a friend to do the same—with the aim of having 10,000 women take up the cause, regardless of their shape, age or size.
   Graham said in a release, ‘I love bikini season, and I hope the #MySwimBody movement helps every woman feel confident and sexy this summer. I’ll be sharing selfies of my swim body all season long and hope that women across the country feel inspired to do the same.
   ‘Beauty is beyond size, and we are calling on women everywhere to embrace their curves, especially at the beach or by the pool.’
   ‘This is the summer of #MySwimBody, when we are encouraging all women to let go of their inhibitions and lose the cover up at the beach,’ said Moshe Laniado, CEO and president of Swimsuitsforall. ‘Swimsuitsforall celebrates all different body types and we’re so proud to once again be leading a movement that inspires women everywhere to feel confident and comfortable in a swimsuit this summer.’

Recycle, rejuvenate and rejoice with the Secret Room

Leyla Messian/3.31

The MTV Movie Awards should be thought of as the “Real People’s Choice Awards”, as it reflects the pop cultural phenomena people are actually paying money to see. By the same token, the Secret Room’s annual event for this event should be considered a solid barometer for new things people are going to want to try and buy. This spring edition of the pre-show party was a most refreshing mix of products which allowed people to recycle, rejuvenate, refresh and rejoice, not only against a pop-cultural backdrop, but also social changes in US culture taking root in California.
   The star attraction was Parfaire, a Pasadena-based medical æsthetics’ spa that also provides on-site services. In a private suite high above the revelry in the SLS’s bustling ballroom, guests enjoyed a choice of a Red Carpet Rejuvenating Facial or Botox treatments.
   Parfaire, under the direction of Dr Winnie, is one of the few Los Angeles “med-spas” that provide Kybella treatments, which permanently dissolve double-chin fat. Their patience and calming demeanour provided a welcoming respite for celebrities, press and other attendees pressured by the demands of the upcoming award show and related public appearances. The treatments were short, but remarkably relaxing and effective, providing living proof that a spa is only as good as the expertise and attitude of its doctors and staff.
   The last gasp of a southern California winter allowed guests to enjoy the pleasure of sipping wine while bundled up in cashmere in colours that matched the varietals. From JaM Cellars comes a new kind of Hollywood breakfast: Butter Chardonnay, Jam Merlot and Toast sparkling wine. Guests appreciated Repeat Cashmere’s buttery-soft scarves and ponchos crafted from snuggly but deceptively light and delicate fabrics. Among the rich neutrals and jewel tones, burgundy was the most popular colour with celebs.
   There was also plenty of bling to liven up the classic cashmere pieces. The Fleur de Lys and Me offered youthfully chic jewellery made of stainless steel (including VIP wrist bands with MTV logos). Other items included clever, customizable bracelets with snap-on, interchangable charms covered in crystals. Gris by Allison Hall tempted VIPs with fine modern jewellery designed with a nod to Ancient Rome, the Byzantine Empire and the Victorian era. Mixed metals, from rose gold to rhodium, provided the backdrop for precious and semi-precious stones swimming in ornate diamond pave settings.
   Tracey Tanner Studios offered Italian leather purses and make-up bags that allowed guests to make a statement beyond fluorescent snakeskin and dyed crocodile leather. The company’s simple bag designs were covered in psychedelic colours, tie-die patterns, and digitally printed images of the natural beauty of the cosmos. And what star would not want to walk down the red carpet carrying the universe in her hands?
   Sagjol showcased comfy yet edgy clothing for men and women of all shapes and sizes. The new line featured a denim-like fabric made from recycled ketchup bottles—here is fashion feeding the soul instead of landfills. Sagjol’s toasty jackets, soft-to-the-touch jeans and frayed biker vests are perfect for throwing over graphic T-shirts and sexy camisoles.
   Beauty and grooming aides were also geared for the young as well as the young-in-spirit. Prep’s Strands like Steel hair care line is marketed as ‘cool care for young hair’—especially for trendsetters who often put their locks through hell. The leave-in treatment protects stressed hair from sun, heat, hot spotlights and other sources of thermal damage. It also works great as a de-tangler for kinky and naturally curly hair that finds its way into annoying dreadlocks.
   ClixIt Heal and Conceal pens offered a convenient way to hide blemishes and heal in-grown hairs. These little pens conveniently fit into the tiniest of clutches. In terms of larger cover-ups, Fake Bake was back to invite celebs to step into the mobile tanning parlour for a double shot of ‘Espresso Tan’. They also premièred their anti-ageing self-tanning facial lotion, along with a daily moisturizer that also amplifies and preserves an existing natural or fake tan.
   There were also several tables devoted to the most intimate of female concerns. Disposable PantyPads are biodegradable period panties complete with padded reinforcement to protect ladies during long flights and longer business meetings. For those of us who get really cranky under these circumstances, there’s always Serenol, a non-prescription dietary supplement that has been clinically shown to put a smile on women’s faces during that time of month. Made with Swedish flower pollen extract, it reduces water retention and junk food cravings while promoting a good night’s sleep.
   Speaking of things that annoy the “lady of the house” and her overnight guest, Jack’s Furr­fighters showcased their newest fur-fighting gear: suede gloves that remove cat and dog hair from little black dresses, boyfriends’ suits, living room sofas and boudoir pillows. All the lady has to do is put on the glove, and pet the sofa or the man covered in cat hair.
   Hemp-based products, backed by their 9,000 year-old history, came out from the shadows for a star turn. Hemp oil beauty products from Kannaway.com introduced Hollywood to hemp-oil infused cleansers, serums, and moisturizers. When combined with hyaluronic acid and other botanicals, hemp oil banishes signs of premature ageing. RSHO Raw Hemp Oil (by HempMeds), is a dietary supplement known to reduce anxiety without making you high.
   For those who prefer to smoke their herbs, Hydra Vapor Tech showcased its state-of-the-art vapourizer carrying cases. Available in gold, silver, white and black, the sleek Titan II allows you to carry all of your vaping supplies in a tasteful and tidy manner. While vaping, you could chill out to your favourite music with jewel-toned Spider ear buds, engineered with a focus on bass, vital to one’s enjoyment of rap, hip-hop and rock.
   The event also came with a cherry on top, which was definitely not for kids: no pre-award show event would be complete without a platter of Jello-shots from Twisted Cherries. Guests and vendors alike could not resist gin and whiskey-infused cherries encased in tangy cherry gelatin. While Girl Meets World star Ava Kolker and Disney’s Lexie Kolker enjoyed their cookies, the rest of us indulged in those festive sips.
   Favourite stars from MTV-flavoured movies past and present in attendance included Judge Reinhold, Vincent Spano, Daphne Blunt, Kirk Morrison, Ken Davitian, Charisma Carpenter, Lauren Potter, Ryan Ochoa, Ginger Gonzoga, Ashlee Keating, Jessica Barth, as well as veteran soap opera divas Kate Linder and Diedre Hall.—Layla Messian, LA Correspondent

Actress Katrin Heß the latest to pose nude for PETA, promoting veganism

In the spirit of PETA’s earlier campaigns featuring celebrities who would rather go naked than wear fur, German actress Katrin Heß has posed nude to promote a vegan diet.
   Heß has long been public about her love of animals, running a prize draw last year for a rescue dog.
   Last week, Heß teased fans on her Facebook and Instagram, saying that she would be posing for PETA Deutschland. The German arm of the worldwide anti-animal cruelty group revealed her promotional image today.
   Heß said, ‘My choice to be vegan is not a trend, but a conscious decision for me and my love of animals. Since I do not eat animal products any more, I look at my surroundings very differently. For example, I finally understand that not only dogs, but cows and pigs, are sentient individuals … Every animal has the right to a happy and full life.’
   PETA Deutschland notes that 800 million animals are slaughtered or die in Germany alone for the meat, dairy and egg industries, and thousands of millions of fish suffocate on the decks of fishing boats or are crushed in nets.
   It refers German visitors to its Veganstart website, www.veganstart.de.
   The promotional image was shot by photographer Marc Rehbeck. Make-up was by Emile van Tile, using Paul Mitchell products.
   The shoot’s release, along with a behind-the-scenes video, coincides with the return of Heß in RTL’s Alarm für Cobra 11: die Autobahnpolizei TV show, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in March. It will reach its 300th episode in 2016, although its 291st was promoted as the 300th by the network.
   In anticipation of the anniversary, the network over-enthusiastically removed fan videos that it did not even own from a Facebook group last month, under penalty of perjury.
   Heß joins celebrities such as Christy Turlington, Pamela Anderson, Charlotte Ross, Tamara Ecclestone, Christian Serratos, and Eva Mendes in posing nude for PETA.
