Rodial founder Maria Hatzistefanis was in town from London this week with lots of new products and to celebrate ten years of her amazing line. I am pretty hard to please with beauty products and there are really only a handful of lines that do what they say they do and Rodial is one of them. A few years ago I went crazy for their snake serum launch and am dying to try the Bee Venom Moisturizer she just released. And the best news is that Maria came up with a cheaper line of really similar products that you can find at Target at a third of the price. I went to the luncheon yesterday (pics below!) in West Hollywood and this morning stopped by the Kravetz PR showroom to explore the Nip+Fab line. The venom products are my favorite and I used the Glamoxy Snake Serum Mask to the last drop. It leaves your skin super smooth and tight, which for a needle phobe like me is a miracle. So excited to try the routine Maria customized for me: Rodial Glamtox cleanser followed by the Nip+Fab Glycolic fix exfoliating facial pads and then the Bee Venom moisturizer. Nip+Fab launched a year ago at Target and in March they introduced the Viper Venom wrinkle fix ($20!) which has the same ingredients as the snake serum and can also be used as a primer. The line includes Viper Venom eye fix for tightening and circles ($15!) and Complex correction cream with spf 30 ($15) which comes in only two shades because adjusts to your skin tone. Last December they also launched the Stiletto fix with peppermint to cool your exhausted feet and increase circulation ($10!) I am going to guinea pig myself for the next few weeks with all the new products and report back…
