I was eager to try the new Lancôme Oscillation PowerFoundation ($48, lancome-usa.com) as soon as I heard about it. It’s a mineral powder foundation with a sponge applicator that actually pulsates when you press the button on the handle. These vibrations (that’s 7,000 micro-vibrations per minute to be exact) are meant to help the mineral formula blend onto skin better.

Microdermabrasion is a service you can get at a spa or a dermatologist’s office that uses small crystals to help slough off dead skin cells and reveal smoother, clearer skin. In recent years, there have been several kits and products available to do this type of treatment at home. I’ve been testing the truly unique Blinc Resurf.a.stic Body ($60, blincinc.com). It’s a bit pricey, but a lot cheaper than the professional service.

Have you ever had a paraffin treatment? It’s a spa service where your hands or feet are dipped into a coat of warm paraffin wax (which contains paraffin oil so it’s not as sticky as regular wax and doesn’t pull hairs). Then the area you are treating is covered in plastic for a few minutes. Later, the layers are removed in order to smoothen your skin. I received this treatment once and still remember how soft my hands felt afterwards.
