There’s the three-step soothing Calm-O-Mile line, which is formulated for those with sensitive skin; antioxidant-rich Glow On products protect against environmental damage and is best for those with normal or combination skin; the rejuvenating True Dew delivers moisture and radiance, especially on mature skin; and clarifying Claritea products are formulated with botanicals like tea tree and aloe vera to treat acne-prone skin.
T3’s new styling tool promises a salon-worthy blowout
Heat styling at home just got a whole lot easier. The new T3 AireBrush Duo hot air styler ($225) features two interchangeable brush attachments and 15 speed and heat combinations so you can find the best setting that works for your hair type and texture. Using the brand’s IonFlow technology, the sleek device delivers a ton of power to quickly provide a shiny, frizz-free look, and it includes a handy volume booster switch for easy results. After a smooth, super straight look? Opt for the paddle brush. Or, try the round brush for something more full and bold.

Olaplex introduces new toning shampoo
There’s a new Olaplex product vying for your shelf space. The beloved haircare brand’s No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo — the first of its kind for the company — is a purple shampoo formulated specifically for blonde, lightened and grey hair. The sulfate-free, highly concentrated product promises to neutralize brassiness, and soften, strengthen and protect hair, all while cleansing and hydrating, too. It’s also gentle enough to use every time you shampoo, and the brand says that the longer you use it, the brighter the results.
