It's easy to fake your tan, your nails, and your hair color. But it's not so easy to fake a good night's sleep . . . especially if you tend to fall victim to puffy eyes. Lucky for us, Salma Hayek has come up with her Nuance Green Tea Cooling Eye Gel ($17). This minimassage in a bottle not only zaps puffiness but works to reveal brighter, more even eyes over time. But don't expect an ordinary tube of eye gel. Tucked under the cap is a trio of beads onto which the gel is dispensed. Simply massage the gel over your eyes with the beads to disperse puffiness. And since the gel is created with green tea and aloe vera, you're getting a healthy dose of antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatory agents. See? Even your eyes deserve a little spa treatment.
Score for the SPF 30, but add a quadruple score for making a cream that feels light on the skin, adds a bit of a glow, still hydrates, and costs under 20 bucks. Includes natural licorice extract to brighten, and blue agave and prickly pear extracts to treat dryness and improve firmness.
For a multitasking option, try Salma's AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream ($20). Not only does it smell fresh and bright, but thanks to a key ingredient (bark from the tepezcohuite tree), it's antioxidant rich and works to tone the skin — and at a very reasonable price. I think we can all get behind that.
After keeping it secret for six years, Salma Hayek has revealed that she's creating a beauty line inspired by her grandmother. "I always wanted to do this," Hayek told T Magazine, "because my grandmother, who was a beauty, she died at 96 with no wrinkles. And you should see my mother! We have some family secrets."
Nuance, to launch at CVS stores, will include a wide variety of products for face, hair, and body. The collection includes a brow set, chamomile face cleanser, shea butter and macadamia moisturizer, and products based on recipes by Salma's Mexican grandmother.
