I always look forward to my segments on Windy City Live and catching up with the show's host Val, who is as awesome in real life as she is on TV. In my latest segment, I've got products that will get you excited about beauty in 2016. Visit my snapchat (nicolepearltbg) to see all the behind the scenes antics! Here's the segment and keep reading to shop my picks and see the complete list!

 

  

  1) Curel Itch Defense Body Wash

This is more than just a body wash because it stops dry, itchy skin before it begins. It's a soap-free formula loaded with nourishing ingredients like jojoba and olive oils, and gentle enough for eczema-prone skin. This body wash is a must-have for Chicagoans this winter. (Available at drugstores; $6.99)

2) Plaque HD

The first-of-its kind toothpaste is made with a plant-based dye that turns the plaque on your teeth teal! The color only disappears once you've brushed it off. Studies show that people who used this new toothpaste removed twice the amount of plaque on their teeth compared to standard toothpaste. (Available at plaquehd.com or amazon.com; $21)

3) Alterna Haircare Moisture Intense Caviar Oil Crème Pre Shampoo Treatment

This is a savior for people with severely dry hair, or those who have fried their hair from hot tools or hair coloring. You apply it on wet hair pre-shampoo, and the idea is that it boosts the performance of both shampoo and conditioner by binding the hydrating agents in each product to better hydrate hair. It also works by repelling minerals present in the water to defend against build up. When used 1 to 2 times weekly, hair is left super soft and shiny. (Available at AlternaHaircare.com, Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom and fine salons nationwide; $30) 

4) Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil

Many people cringe at the idea of putting oil on your face, but cleansing oils won't break you out. They're extremely effective for removing dirt and makeup without stripping skin and leaving you dry. I love this one because it's lightweight and filled with moisturizing botanical oils, including coconut and argan. (Available at burtsbees.com; $15.99)

5) FullFill

When it comes to anti-aging, this is a topical hyaluronic acid that painlessly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Think of it as spackle for your face. It's thicker than a serum and lighter than a cream, and you apply a tiny drop, enough for a pinky finger, before bed to targeted areas on your face where you have lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin adn plumps these lines so they appear less noticeable in anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks. (Available at Sephora and Nordstrom; $89)

6) Bliss Climate Control Spa-Powered Skin Conditioning Wand

Ever hear the trick about putting eye serums in the fridge? That's because a product's temperature can enhance its performance – some work better hot, while others shine at cool temps. Bliss climate control provides instant heat or cooling on demand with a sonic vibration that massages and rejuvenates skin. (Available at blissworld.com; $129)

7) Dermaflash

This new device brings the benefits of dermaplaning right to your home. Dermaplaning is a professional procedure done in medical spas that exfoliates the surface of the skin and removes vellus hair, or peach fuzz. The invention of Dermaflash allows you to get the same benefits in the comfort of your home so you get smoother skin and makeup looks flawless. (Available at dermaflash.com and Sephora; $189)

8) Rodan + Fields Acute Care For Expression Lines

Sick of wrinkles and expression lines? These patches, which you put on clean skin before bed, are earning a ton of buzz. They're like little band-aids that you apply to areas where you have expressions lines (think crow's feet, forehead, around your mouth). The box comes with enough one-time use patches because the idea is you wear them every third night (Mon. Wed. Friday) for a month and what's so cool is that results will last an extra 3 months! Lines are proven to look noticeably diminished and skin appears smoother than ever. I'm such a fan of R+F, I've partnered with the brand as an Independent Consultant.
