BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin?


Choosing Between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) was a quantum leap forward in plastic surgery. It provides a nonsurgical reproducible and safe therapy for facial wrinkles, hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating in armpit), and blepharospasm. It has enjoyed complete market dominance since its inception nearly 10 years ago. In 2006, Dysport, sold by the Valeant Pharmaceuticals, was introduced as a competitor to BOTOX®.  Dysport® showed a great deal of promise for relieving wrinkles around the eyes and forehead Read more

Wantable™, A Beautiful New Thing!

Wantable ModelI recently discovered this amazing new subscription program, Wantable and it was love at first beautifully baubled sight!!!  It is a monthly Accessories Box containing 3 to 4 boutique jewelry pieces hand-picked by expert stylists to perfectly match your style preferences and personal taste.

The “style quiz” was the most fun and asks a series of questions about how you feel about different looks and styles so that your own personal stylist can customize your Accessories Box just for you!  Some of the style options to choose from are Classic, Glam, Rock n Roll and Boho.  You rate each category with “love”, “like”, or “dislike”.  Then, you get to choose which types of accessories you prefer and the list is endless.  Earrings, bracelets, necklaces….OH MY!!!  There is every option imaginable, even sunglasses and scarves.

You may subscribe monthly for only $36 or can choose a one time purchase for $40 and if for ANY reason you don’t love your box, you may return it, no questions asked!  Now…let’s get to the most exciting thing…what I received in my August box!!!  It felt as if my birthday came early this year when I opened my beautifully wrapped Wantable™ Box.

Wantable Jewelrey

My beautiful jewelry was custom picked from Wantable and arrived in this pretty little box. Its a beautiful thing! –Penny Forsten

The first item was a beautiful Boho inspired white quart cuff bracelet that instantly made me think of Kate Hudson’s style.  I would have paid full price for this beauty and received this and TWO other pieces for only $40!  The other two pieces were very trendy earrings, one long; statement pair of earrings perfect for date night and the other were delicate good hoops with a pretty purple stone.  The statement earrings were very reminiscent of J. Lo and very on point with the fall trends.

I am not a rookie when it comes to the monthly subscription game.  I have been a long time subscriber to New Beauty testtube™, Birch Box™ and even Bark Box™ to name a few.  Yes, there is even a monthly sampling program for you dog!  The cosmetic themed beauty boxes are a fun way to sample new products without the commitment of purchasing full sized products but this new amazing jewelry subscription is a total standout and a MUST-HAVE for any of you accessory enthusiasts!!!

Beauty and Accessory Wishes to All!!!  Penny

Choosing Between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin

Botox or Xeomin

It has enjoyed complete market dominance since its inception nearly 10 years ago. In 2006, Dysport, sold by the Valeant Pharmaceuticals, was introduced as a competitor to BOTOX®.  Dysport® showed a great deal of promise for relieving wrinkles around the eyes and forehead but, at a lower price point than BOTOX®.  However, it unfortunately has quite not lived up to its promise to replace Allergan’s product as the lower cost alternative  because of problems associated with diffusion, inaccurate results, and patient dissatisfaction. Therefore, it maintains a distant second place in the neuromodulator market and it is unlikely that this will ever improve.

The latest New Beauty testtube™ truly is the ultimate beauty sampling program!  Being the beauty addict that I am, I am always thrilled to receive my testtube™ and even more thrilled that it is now being offered 6 times per year.  Looking back now, I’m not sure how I ever survived with only a scant 2 per year.  It was just cruel and unusual beauty punishment and I’m so excited that the brains behind New Beauty have realized the error of their sampling ways…Do I hear 12 times per year in the making???  YES, Please!!!

I have been a long time devotee of this magazine and love it even more now that Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery’s fabulous surgeon, Dr. Alan Durkin is one of their prized featured Surgeons!
