I’m hair obsessed these days. Not only have I been trying new hair treatment products but I’m also using new tools. I am one of those people who has always been very conscious of good (and bad) hair days. My obsession has extended to my eyebrows and eyelashes too as you’ll be seeing in upcoming reviews.

One of the new products that I’m really appreciating is by Rita Hazan, the well known hair color innovator. She’s in every magazine article when it relates to hair color and famous people like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, and more. Now we can all take advantage of her amazing skills with her home care line.

I was sent the Rita Hazan ROOT CONCEALER, Touch Up Stick in two shades (three are available) and I’m using them daily. These are an extension of her already famous Root Concealer Touch Up Spray but these are the Temple & Brow Edition.

These are fat crayon like pencils that need no sharpening as they wind up. They can be used to cover up those pesky grays that pop up before you need to recolor your hair. But what I love about using them is that they are perfect for my eyebrows.

I’m no longer able to run out of the house without touching up my eyebrows. They’ve thinned so much due to age and prior illness that they aren’t the same as they used to be.

As you can see, Rita Hazan’s Root Touch Up Stick fills in my eyebrows completely making them instagram ready! It’s so natural looking on me because it fills in my brows fully – no patches left behind.

Not only do the Touch Up Sticks mask the few gray hairs that I notice but they completely define my eyebrows. The pencil grips my brow hair easily and is easy to build up if necessary. I’ve had brow pencils that seem to take away the color as I’ve tried to build it up but this just glides on. If I go a little too far it’s easy to remove for a few minutes.

The pencils are just as great for roots and those little silvery hairs around my temple. With my roots I use the side of the pencil and feather in the color along my part. The box comes with a spoolie that helps blend the color into your roots to make them look more natural.

There are only 3 shades available which might be a problem for some. Dark Brown/Black is recommended for deepest brown shades like ebony, raven and deep-dark espresso. Light Brown isn’t really light in my opinion although I do apply it with a lot of pressure. It’s best for lighter brown shades like chocolate, chestnut, amber and sable. And Dark Blonde is for dark blonde shades like dark honey, ash blondes and light caramel.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick is perfect for on the go. You can travel with it, keep it in your cosmetic bag, and touch up as needed. If you are like me you’ll love it as a water-resistant eyebrow color that lasts the entire day.

Beauty items to stock up on! Bargains for Meijer Fall Beauty Week

L'Oreal Root Cover Up and Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

I have been loving Facebook lately because of all the awesome ‘back to school’ photos. I don’t care how old you are, there is something magical about this time of year…new beginnings, new friends, and even better – new beauty products! Fall is the perfect time to finish up the products you got for summer and replenish your stash. I’ve partnered with Meijer in anticipation of their Fall Beauty Week that starts September 11th and here are four items to stock up on that are worth the extra closet and drawer space.

Dove Men CareDove Deep Moisture Hydrating Body Wash

1.Body wash. I’ve been using Dove Body Wash forever, so I am happy to see that these will be on sale at Meijer during Fall Beauty Week. If the men in your life are like mine, they resist body wash in favor of bar soap…but I think the Dove Clean Comfort will change their minds. This is an excellent multi-purpose soap that works for body and face, and it has a refreshing outdoorsy scent that isn’t overwhelming.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
2. Toothpaste. We all need toothpaste and there are so many options out there (and so many on sale next week!), but I hope you will try my favorite, Colgate Optic White Platinum. I am totally stocking up on this – I prefer a paste over a gel, and this one makes teeth visibly whiter in just three days.Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

3.  Body lotion. Lotion is a year round must-have and I know I panic when I don’t have back up bottles. I am loving the Yes to Coconut Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion because it seems perfect in every sort of weather – it’s light, so it feels great even in hot and sticky weather. It’s super hydrating, so it’s perfect for dry winter skin.  t’s also so nice to have a spray lotion, which makes application easy and convenient. This was even a 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Winner.

L'Oreal Root Cover Up
4.  Root cover up. Gals who color their hair have a deep understanding of the nightmare that begins with the dreaded last spray of root cover up. I always have three bottles of this on hand…any less and I start to panic. The L’Oreal Root Cover Up is perfect for instantly touching up roots, and the money saved by stretching out time between hair appointments is incredible. Stock up while this is on sale!!

So many of my favorite items are on sale next week that I have a whole other post with skin care recommendations. These four items are the ones to buy multiples of for the upcoming winter – take advantage of the wonderful prices on these fantastic products during Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!  – Lisa
