a little random sampling from the beauty closet at b.i.r.l. headquarters

Being beauty editors here at our blog, we get the chance to try out many products that cross our desks.

Lately we've been cleaning out our closet and we've decided to bring you a random assortment of goodies that are just to-die-for.

Here they are, in no particular order...

Hair Play Set ($20) is one of those products that really can work on any type of hair. Plus it's eco-friendly.

It comes in three different holds: light, medium, and extra hold...and it's fabulous.

We're loving the light hold, for an easy blowout with gorgeous shine and softness. It actually helps to protect your beautiful strands from the heat of your blow dryer, flat iron, and curling iron.

A tip for our curly haired readers, from the creator Fritz Clay?

Apply SET foam to clean towel-dried hair. When completely moist with product, spin hair around finger or position natural curls and diffuse or air dry.


We know what you're thinking...a toothpaste?

Uh...yeah...especially one that kicks the heck out of seriously stained teeth like this one.

Rembrandt Intense Stain Toothpaste ($8) is phenomenal because it gets rid of the deep stains like coffee (trust us, we're both coffee drinkers) and wine, but does it gently.

Plus it makes your mouth feel all fresh and minty.


If you've ever fought with your hair while trying to take off your makeup at night...the Tassi ($15) is for you.

It comes in a range of 12 adorable colors, you can machine wash and dry it, and it really works.

The bonus? It doesn't mess up your hair.

Now, why didn't we think of that?

While this is definitely not a beauty product per se, it is a product whose proceeds go towards something that is near and dear to our hearts...breast cancer.

The American Cancer Society's eCommerce site, HOPE Shop, is featuring this limited edition Flora Envirosax Breast Cancer Awareness Bag ($10).

It's an eco-friendly reusable shopping bag, that rolls up small enough to store it in a glove compartment or purse.

Each bag will be delivered with a mammography reminder magnet from the American Cancer Society, and all proceeds go towards the American Cancer Society's breast cancer research, education, advocacy, and patient and family services programs.

Now that's a beautiful buy.

With love (always),
