Fall Favorites That You Have To Try

Wow, did fall arrive today or what? It's a new season and so many new beauty products to try and to love! We've sorted through quite a few to find our favorites and hopefully yours! 

evolis Professional Style & Treat Dry Shampoo ($30) Created with 100% botanical actives to both style your hair and treat your scalp. This shampoo instantly absorbs excess oil while delivering their patented blend of FGF5 inhibitors. By blocking FGF5, the negative effects can be reversed, resulting in the restoration of hair density, promotion of new growth and the preservation of existing hair strands.  Ideal for all hair types, Style +Treat Dry Shampoo revives your hair style while lifting your roots for incredible volume and fullness.

Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum ($88) Vitamin C isn't new, but it definitely is having a strong resurgence in popularity. The Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum is an oil and fragrance-free serum that packs a whopping 20 percent concentration of vitamin C that deliver both instant and long-term results. A 10 percent concentration of AHAs joins the mix -- all working together to leave your skin firmer, smoother, and noticeably more glowy.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream ($30) This best-selling cream is getting a revamp, now reformulated to be entirely paraben-free. But don't worry, you won't be able to tell that your beloved moisturizer has changed -- it took Kiehl's scientists five years and more than 114 different versions to come up with this final formula that works!

Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation ($48 - available in 30 shades) A pearl extract in this medium-to-full coverage base helps reflect light to give your skin an instant glow, regardless of whether you're standing in front of a ring light or sitting under yellow-y office bulbs. The lightweight, moisturizing formula promises to stay put for up to 15 hours, keeping your skin looking flawless and feeling hydrated.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Barriair Cream ($30) As a general rule, creams promising to restore and calm your skin are usually, well, super thick and heavy. Not this newbie, which is packed with hard-working, skin-coddling ingredients, but it has an airy, whipped texture that feels more like a gel moisturizer than a heavy-hitting hydrator. There's hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin, colloidal oatmeal to soothe it, and ceramides and linoleic acid to help strengthen the skin barrier.

Kopari Coconut Detox Mask ($38) We think of this mask as a juice cleanse for our skin! Bentonite and kaolin clays go to town pulling impurities out of your pores, while coconut oil hydrates, and probiotics help keep the top layer of skin feeling balanced and looking fresh.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Power Fabric Foundation Balm ($64) A blend of waxes and oils gives this foundation formula its initial balm-like consistency, which, when smoothed over skin, transforms into a cream, and later, a powder. Made with 15 percent pigments, it packs a hefty punch of complete coverage and has a perfectly matte finish despite its creamy consistency.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer ($28 available in 22 shades) The latest addition to the brand's best-selling Ultra HD line, this cover-up doesn't need to be set with powder, thanks to the unique amino-acid coated pigments that immediately conform to your skin, staying put for up to 12 hours without caking or creasing.

Maybelline New York Snapscara ($6) Maybelline knows a thing or two about mascara, and their newest Snapscara formula is one of their best yet. The thin, flexible pigment tints your lashes and leaves them looking super glossy, but also adds a little thickness and lots of length.

Dior Lip Glow To The Max ($34) Dior Lip Glow To The Max is the same beloved Lip Glow, now with a yummy new look and a touch more pigment. In this new formula, the sheer, tinted balm is spiked with pigment — those are the candy-colored swirls you see in the bullet — to both hydrate your lips and leave them with a bit more of a tint than the original formula does. Take your pick from seven different shades, five with a dewy finish and two that leave behind a holographic sheen.

Tenoverten Rose Polish Remover ($14) What you won't find in this polish remover: acetone, parabens, or any unpleasant odors. What you will find: vitamin E, horsetail leaf extract, and aloe to help hydrate and strengthen your nails. Green beauty lovers should add this to their product stash, stat.

Heat Wave Beauty Survival Tips

With the third heat wave having just passed, and more certainly to come before Summer 2019 is over, we need some solutions for the most trying beauty problems! Conventional makeup, skincare and hair care aren't going to cut it when the temperatures offer up nothing but shine, stick and frizz. Happily, there are some brilliant weatherproofing products that save the day... and your beauty look. Here TME gives you the hot weather beauty kit for your skin, hair and nails to see you through any hot weather perfectly calm, cool and collected.

Anti-Shine Essentials
Keep your skin cool from the moment you put on your moisturizer. Next, find a UV protector and primer in one -- Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting SP35 Sunscreen protects, mattifies and keeps your makeup place. Switch from foundation to a lighter cream with skincare benefits like a BB Cream (more coverage) or a CC Cream for a sheer finish. We love IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+.

Keep blotting papers like e.l.f.Shine Eraser Blotting Papers on hand for shine control rather than extra face powder, which can cake. This is actually a staple anytime of year. And a great tip to freshen up your makeup without loading on base is to spray a facial mist like jane iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray and use a buffing brush to blend your existing base in again.

Hair Saviors
While a ponytail is always good for a heat wave the look should be updated and we have the perfect how-to from Natasha Sunshine-Antonioni! Another tip is to give your hair a cold rinse post-shampoo, not just to keep you cool but to close the hair cuticle and help prevent hot-weather frizz. 

Fight The Frizz (and win) - If high humidity levels are sending your follicles into a frenzy, keep a vial of oil in your handbag for an instant de-frizz solution. We've been using a tiny drop of MoroccanOil Original Hair Treatment to keep out tresses tamed.

Super Easy Self Tan
A self tan that works fast, but oh so subtly, is essential for when you're caught off guard. St Tropez GradualTan In Shower Lotion works in three minutes to gently glow up your skin over the course of the next few hours, so that by the time the midday sun is out, your sun-kissed glow will be too.

TATCHA Founder Victoria Tsai Talks Ban-No and Water Cream

TATCHA Founder, Victoria Tsai

Like many of us, TATCHA founder Victoria Tsai often feels like she has too much on her plate. But even though multi-tasking is a fact of life it can often leave us feeling off-balance and pulled in too many directions. Victoria traveled to Kyoto seeking a new approach to skincare, but instead she stumbled on a new approach to life. Many of the beautiful Japanese philosophies she learned help her to be more mindful and balanced, without losing the efficiency of multi-tasking.

One of her favorite philosophies that apply to both life and skincare is Ban-No, meaning all-purpose and all mighty. And translating this into life, your things should work hard for you so that you don’t have to work as hard. Every TATCHA formula is crafted to deliver multiple benefits, offering skin everything it needs and nothing it doesn’t.

The newest addition to the TATCHA family is Water Cream ($68) -- this is an anti-aging moisturizer created to hydrate, balance and refine skin in one step.  The unique, oil-free formula is a burst of Zen for your skin, releasing refreshing hydration and powerful Japanese botanicals that leave behind smooth, poreless skin that is perfectly prepped for makeup and one less thing for you to worry about.

Some of Victoria’s other favorite philosophies for mindful multitasking at home that she shares with us are so basic, and yet, so very profound. These are the philosophies that our own founder adopted as a means of survival and we encourage you to sit back, relax, read, and implement what you can into your own world.

  • Wabi sabi: Imperfections make things more unique. We can so often feel off-balance by a desire to do each and every thing perfectly, in work and in life, but this philosophy teaches us to embrace the flaws. Cooking a meal for a loved one doesn’t have to be Instagram-worthy—a chipped plate or a crooked sushi roll only makes it more treasured.
  • Ichi-go, ichi-e: Just this one moment, once in a lifetime. This saying reminds us of the preciousness of each interaction we have. There are ways to multi-task while also allowing us to spend time with the people we care about. Instead of taking a work call while making dinner, catch up with a friend or loved one while chopping veggies.
  • Omakase: Entrust to others. This word is most often encountered at sushi bars, but also applies to our lives. When ordering, it gives the chef authority to make what they want, at the price they set. In life, it reminds us to trust and lean on the people who surround us to help us achieve what we need to do.
  • Kaizen: Make small, continuous improvements. It might not seem like much, but kaizen teaches us to take small steps, towards the change we want. It’s much easier to multi-task when you’re working on small changes towards a goal, rather than trying to accomplish something radical. 
  • Shankankan: The beauty of taking your time. It is easy for us to rush through our work, turning them into mindless endeavors but Shankankan reminds us to slow down, to take time and enjoy the work at hand.
  • Nyunanshin: Have a flexible mind. Originating in martial arts, the concept of nyunanshin says that we should maintain an open mind and be receptive to new teachings. There are always more efficient or better ways of completing the task at hand so it’s important to seek out new perspectives.
  • Chisoku: Know when enough is enough. Chisoku comes from a Zen principle that says there is no limit to human desire. As such, it is up to us to know when to be satisfied. It can be easy to lose ourselves in a flurry of work, but chisoku reminds us to know when our work is done, so we can step away and enjoy other things.
  • Yataiki: Find joy in small things. Even when tasks seem mindless, there are ways to make them uplifting. Allow yourself to notice the beauty of the flowers as you run, or the sound of your favorite song as you work.

We are beyond thrilled to have been able to share Victoria’s insights with you and looking to the future of TATCHA, you can expect a revitalizing treat -- Violet-C Radiance Mask ($68) -- launching in July 2017. The TATCHA Violet-C Radiance Mask is a creamy treatment packed with the anti-aging and brightening power of 7 fruits, 2 unique types of Vitamin C and antioxidant-rich Japanese Beautyberry that rinses away to unveil bright, radiant skin.

TATCHA announced on Friday, Aug. 8 that the company has provided funding for 90,000 days of school and support for girls in developing countries through its partnership with Room to Read. The “Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures” campaign began in January 2014, and provides one day of school and support for each full-size skin care purchase from TATCHA. The figure is three times the initial annual estimates the company had projected when the 1 Purchase = 1 Day of School initiative began.

"We never thought that we would already be able to make this kind of impact so soon," explains founder and CEO Victoria Tsai, shown in the photo above with students in Room to Read's Girls' Education program in Siem Reap, Cambodia. "We're grateful to be a part of the important work that Room to Read is doing, and all of it is possible because of our customers. Now that I've had a chance to visit Cambodia and see first-hand how much the work is genuinely changing lives, it gives our work at TATCHA a whole new dimension of meaning."

Erin Ganju, co-founder and CEO of Room to Read, said partnerships like the one with TATCHA are a priority for the organization and necessary to scale the organization's impact on literacy and girls' education in developing countries. "Room to Read is firmly committed to our partnerships with inspired corporations that support global education," said Erin Ganju. "TATCHA's investment in the next generation of leaders ensures that hundreds of girls are given the opportunity to succeed both inside and outside the classroom."

TATCHA co-founder and President, Brad Murray said he looked forward to even greater contributions as the Company continues to grow. "One purchase at a time, our customers have demonstrated what a wonderful impact this model of giving can create," he said.  "With this as part of our company DNA, we're incredibly inspired by what we can achieve together as we grow." The TATCHA skin care collection is available exclusively at Barneys in the US, JOYCE Beauty in Hong Kong and online at TATCHA.
