Review: Ziip Nano Current Device; A Sleek New Device that promises to conquer breakouts and wrinkles @ziipbeauty
The last few weeks I had the chance to review one of the newest and most hi- tech beauty devices out on the market today. The Ziip Nano Current Device was developed by Melanie Simon an electrical esthetician. The device looks like a super fancy computer mouse that with the aid of the app through your iPhone/ipad offers up 6 different treatments “electrical cocktails” depending on your skin goals.
The technology behind Ziip is that it sends tiny electrical wavelengths deep below the surface of the skin and depending on the setting will deliver different results. When set on low it breaks down dirt and bacteria in the skin to help get rid of acne. My favorite treatment was the “vitaleyes”. The 2 to 4 minute treatment, I did the 4, really helps with dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.
For sensitive skin and for 1st time users the “sensitive energize” treatment is a gentle 12 minute ant- aging treatment. For men who don’t want to spend much time on their face, the 2 minute treatment, twice a week is perfect to help reduce dark circles, fine lines and tighten pores.
The first step is to prepare the face for treatment. The Golden Conductive Gel Treatment, which feels like petroleum jelly, has to be applied liberally before you glide the Ziip device over your face and neck. Time depends on treatment selected. It is recommended to use the Ziip 1 to 3 times a week and the results are cumulative.
After a few weeks of use I find that my pores are tighter, skin definitely looks brighter and my under eye area is way less puffy. It is on the pricey side but worth it and makes a great gift for mothers day. $495 Where To Buy
Hilaria & Alec Baldwin host an evening for The Dacor Modernist Collection Launch of Premium Kitchen Appliances @DacorKitchen @SamsungUS @837NYC #SamsungDinner
Late last year Samsung acquired Dacor, a premium home appliance designer. A complete collection of luxury kitchen appliances that bring focus to the kitchen as a centerpiece for entertaining and connecting with family and friends.
The Modernist Collection was launched on March 15th in NYC at Samsung 837. Hosted by Hilaria & Alec Baldwin, who are huge fans of the brand. With 3 kids under the age of 4, much of their time is spent in the kitchen, so a kitchen that is outfitted to be functional, stylish and interactive is of utmost importance to the family. Samsung CEO BK Yoon explained how technology and innovation are key to lead the way in the premium home appliance design market. Guests were treated to cocktails and dinner while they got the chance to interact up close and personal with the appliances.
Wisewear was conceived out of the reality that the population is getting older, but is also more fashionable and tech savvy than previous generations. The company collaborated with 94 year fashion icon, designer and innovator Iris Apfel to design the Socialite collection, comprised of three uniquely designed smart bracelets that are equally functional and fashionable.
The primary features of these trackers are the norm and include text, email, calls, footsteps, and calorie counts, but what sets these bracelets apart is the distress signal feature that sends out a signal to ones contacts in case of a fall or other safety emergency.
Originally designed for an older consumer because of the distress feature and a higher price point ($295-$345) it has been discovered that younger women also had a need and a desire to own a trendy fashionable accessory that can go with any outfit and provide them with a piece of mind knowing help is easily accessible if they should need it. Now available for purchase at Saks Fifth Ave and other retailers abroad. #Sponsored
