    TRESemme - Hydrology Boosting Moisture Mousse-Extra Hold
    Well, it's easy to see why this is one of InStyle's 150 Best Beauty Buys. It's really great stuff! A real boon for those of us with thick, unruly, frizzy and/or damaged hair. This gives me shiny, bouncy hair that I can run my fingers through, but it still holds my style all day. This is my "Holy Grail" mousse. A total steal at $3.50 for an 8oz can. Perfect if you like natural flowing styles. If you like a bit more hold than the mousse offers, try the Hydrology De-Frizzing Moisture gel. But if you need a very firm hold, neither will work for you. Although I don't think the gel would work for fine hair, the mousse would probably work great. It's quite light and I doubt it would weigh hair down. Just a really wonderful high quality product at a shockingly great price. And that's coming from a hair care snob!

        The Kiel?s Lip Balm SPF 15 in 30G ($7.50) is one of those products. The balm offers sun protection and a sheer hint of colour. Alone the sheer blush colour is great for classes. But when applied over a darker wax-based lip-liner, the colour will darken and last longer. Lips are often one of the most neglected areas on our body as far as sun damage is concerned. While $7.50 may seem pricey for lip-gloss, keep in mind that this version contains SPF 15and moisturizers to keep lips smooth. This gloss gives a hint of colour and tons of protection. Kiel?s is an older line that still uses many of the same quality natural ingredients that they used when the company began. Kiel?s can be found a Neiman Marcus at the Plaza in King of Prussia.

        Another product that serves double duty is Neutrogena?s Shimmer Sheers All Over Colour ($9).Worn alone it creates a subtle shimmer to jazz up eyes. It can be mixed with a lightly tinted moisturizer like Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 for a dewy glow. And for those big party nights, rub the cream on your collarbones and shoulders to add a bit of mystery. Neutrogena can be found at any pharmacy, while Elizabeth Arden is carried exclusively at department stores.

        Instead of frying your skin in tanning beds, try Estee Lauder?s Amber Bronze Liquid Bronzer for Face. For only $28.50 you can save your skin and money. This lotion gives you a natural sun-kissed look for a lot less then tanning sessions at your local salon which can cost up to $60 a month. This gel can help you keep your sun-kissed look late into the fall. Again, Estee Lauder is found only in department stores. Lets face it ladies, your eyes can be your best assets, if you know how to play them up.

        With Cover Girl Eye Shimmer Pens ($5.50), found at any pharmacy, you can dispense the perfect amount of stay-put shadow. Choose a lighter shade and apply sparingly for day-time wear. For nights, layer the colour until you get the smoky look you want. After curling your lashes, creating the illusion of bigger eyes, apply Lancome Definicils Water-proof High Definition Mascara ($21). On early mornings, a single layer can make your eyes look brighter after a late night of studying. But by building layers you can add drama and be ready for a night full of allure. You can find Lancome at any department store at KOP. Don?t worry if your skin isn?t Heidi Klumm perfect.

        Clinique has created a perfect powder that covers blemishes and contains salicylic acid that will keep those monsters at bay. Clinique Clarifying Powder Makeup ($20) comes in a chic green case with a larger mirror for easier application and is found at department stores. While many powders will easily cover skin imperfections, this slightly pricey powder will help eliminate blemishes.

        After all this makeup talk, Cosmo also recommends Olay Daily Facials Express ($5) for easy removal. These magic cloths re-quire no water and remove makeup (even eye makeup) with the vita-min E enriched quilted cloths. Sleeping with makeup on is one of the seven deadly sins of makeup. Keeping your skin clean and moisturized will give you a clean pallet for make-up.

        With pedicure season coming to a close, play up your piggies with Burt?s Bees Foot Care Kit ($10) which is both effective and cheap. GNC carries the entire Burt?s Bees line. After soaking your feet in a bath of milk to soften them, slough off dry skin with the pumice stone that is included in the kit. Next apply the thick cream and relax with a magazine for ten minutes while it absorbs. The bright yellow cotton socks hold in the moisture by creating a barrier against the air. After your ten minutes is up, use a Q-tip and non-acetone nail polish remover to remove all traces of oil from your toenails. Paint your toes pretty with Revlon ColorStay Always On Nail Enamel ($6) found at CVS. This polish set contains a coloured shade and a clear topcoat which helps the polish stay on up to 10 days. By re-polishing nails every other day you can keep that just polished look.

        Because shower shoes and horrible water-pressure is a painful reality of campus living, finding a product that saves shower time is a miracle. Thankfully, Dove has created a moisturizing body wash with gentle scrubbing beads. Dove Exfoliating Body Wash ($4) will quickly and easily remove that nasty layer of dull skin. By lathering up with the body wash before shaving your legs you?ll get a closer shave and the body wash will serve as a shaving cream. Keeping the post shave softness just got a little easier with Aveeno Positively Smooth Moisturizing Lotion ($6). It contains soy which will soften the hair on your legs so that it will grow in finer and less noticeably.

        Pick up the October Cosmopolitan for many more beauty tips and tried and true products.

                    Hi Bean,

                    Sorry to inform you that Prescriptive has left our shores since 2005.

                    You can read more about the brand here.

                    I think we have the same skintone, cos i just digged out from my old makeup stash that i no longer use - a used bottle of Prescriptive Virtual skin foundation in real ivory 38. I'm not sure if it's still safe to use. If you want, i can post it FOC to you, just pm me your Dubai addy.

                    The brand is still alive in US. You can try this website to order for one.

                    Or try swapping in or from ebay or yahoo auction.
