Cindy Crawford and Sonia Kashuk to appear in public service announcement for “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits”

Longtime friends come together to appear in a Public Service Announcement for “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits” to benefit Cancer and Careers

WEST CHESTER, Pa., 2015-3-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — Model and entrepreneur Cindy Crawford and makeup artist and entrepreneur Sonia Kashuk have not only shared years of friendship, but also a passion for beauty. Now the two beauty mavens have united their passion to prove that a little makeup can make a big difference by appearing in both a print and television public service announcement for “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits.”

QVC and Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) are once again joining forces for a two-hour live charitable broadcast to provide shoppers with a special opportunity to feel beautiful while giving back. “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits” is scheduled to air on QVC Wednesday, April 15 at 10 PM (ET) and will feature prestige beauty brands including Laura Mercier, Clinique, Laura Geller, Shiseido, Josie Maran, philosophy and more.

“Cindy and Sonia have each been inspiring women for years with their ambition and passionate spirits,” said Ken O’Brien, senior vice president of merchandising for QVC. “We are honored to have them as our spokespeople this year and are confident that together, they will inspire viewers to make a difference.”

During the event, beauty enthusiasts can choose from a selection of color cosmetics, fragrance, skin-care and hair-care products, and 80 percent of the purchase price* of donated merchandise will benefit Cancer and Careers, a charitable program of the CEW Foundation that is dedicated to the empowerment of people living and working with cancer. Since 2013, “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits” has generated $2.2 million to benefit Cancer and Careers, which is part of QVC’s ongoing commitment to support charitable causes that promote the success and wellness of women through the power of relationships.

“Cancer has affected so many lives, but the challenges of living and working with cancer is often an aspect of the diagnosis that rarely gets attention,” said Crawford. “That is why I wanted to be a part of this great cause with my dear friend Sonia. Beauty is not just about the way you look, but also about the way you feel inside, and this is an opportunity for beauty to make a difference in people’s lives.”

“As a cancer survivor and beauty industry veteran, I am thrilled to be a part of Beauty with Benefits,” added Kashuk. “It’s wonderful to see so many leading names in beauty come together to support such a powerful cause that will impact the lives of so many.”

“Cindy and Sonia embody what it means to be beautiful,” said Carlotta Jacobson, president of Cosmetic Executive Women. “They have supported each other in friendship for so many years, so it’s only fitting that they would come together to support a cause that means so much to both of them.”

Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes By Clinique

Clinique has announced the launch of new Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes, which is its latest defense for men who want to effectively address the look of the multiple signs of ageing around the eye area.

Long hours squinting at the computer screen, late nights, not enough sleep and sun damage eventually take their toll on the sensitive skin around the eyes of unsuspecting men. Upon the first signs of ageing, an increasing number of men are seeking immediate measures to restore the look of vitality to this vulnerable skin. Men now understand that maintaining their youthful appearance requires the right de-ageing tools.

Created exclusively for men and conveniently packaged with a flip-top cap, New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes is the latest addition to the men’s skin care and grooming range.

Men often don’t show signs of ageing until their 30s. Then, loss of firmness, lines and wrinkles suddenly appear. The skin around the eyes is roughly ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face and is extremely sensitive, so it’s important to take action.

Clinique understands these concerns and has formulated a lightweight men’s eye cream that delivers intense moisture and advanced treatment properties to combat the frustrating signs of ageing. Upon application, the look of dark circles and puffiness is immediately diminished and the eye area is instantly hydrated. With continued use, the appearance of firmness and elasticity is restored, reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. This powerful all-in-one eye cream helps build the skin’s barrier and contains soothing antioxidants that help protect against future damage.

New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes contains a cocktail of ingredients designed for moisturising, visibly reducing puffiness, diminishing the appearance of dark circles and protecting against future damage.

The new launch partners up with the mens 3-Step Skin Care. System, as well as Skin Supplies for Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF 15 for the most comprehensive anti-ageing routine for men.

New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes is Allergy Tested, 100% Fragrance Free, Ophthalmologist Tested, Dermatologist Tested, Non-Comedogenic, Oil-Free and will be exclusively available at www.cliniqueformen.co.uk from 1 September 2009 and Clinique counters nationwide from 1 October 2009.

New Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula By Clinique

Clinique has created a next generation of loose powder with foundation coverage. The Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula is the companion to Clinique’s best-selling liquid foundation, Superbalanced Makeup and is to be launched at the start of September.

New Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula By Clinique

Clinique’s Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula doesn’t require all the work and buffing other mineral makeup brands do to achieve a smooth, flawless application. To develop this powder makeup, Clinique used a unique processing machine which refines the powder into uniform platelets that are evenly distributed on the surface of the skin. The colour-true, finely milled powder provides an even application requiring less touch-ups throughout the day with its long-wear formula. Users simply shave the powder in a clock-wise direction for the desired amount and the powder can be applied with the conveniently housed, anti-bacterial brush. Oily areas and shine breakthrough are controlled throughout the day due to the mineral-rich formula which is sweat and humidity-resistant.

Superbalanced Makeup is the answer to the perplexing combination-skin dilemma. The foundation formulas know exactly where to go and what to do to solve the problem of oily skin yet its smart enough not to strip the drier facial areas in the process. In fact, the powder actually hydrates these dry areas at the same time.

Additionally, broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection is provided with 3:1 UVB/UVA protection, meaning the UVB protection is three times proportional to UVA protection. This 3:1 ratio ensures UVA protection is provided and this all-physical sun screen is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Clinique has used minerals in a range of products since the brand’s inception. Blended Face Powder, which contains minerals, was created the very same year Clinique launched 40 years ago. The Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula is Clinique’s newest mineral infused creation touting a mineral composition including Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium and Zinc incorporated into the formula to promote healthy skin.

New Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour By Clinique

Clinique is launching a new innovation in lip gloss to help protect and defend delicate lips. Bursting with antioxidant ingredients, Clinique introduces new Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour, a healthy dose of luscious colour in six juicy shades, rich in moisture and shine, like an antioxidant fruit smoothie for the lips.

Combining the high shine and super moisturising aspects of a lip gloss with the rich, stay-true colour and buildable coverage of a lipstick, the beauty experts at Clinique have developed this revolutionary new lip product.

The new formulation has taken powerful, ‘good for you’ ingredients and squeezed them into a gorgeous, colourful lip product with treatment benefits. Over time lips become vulnerable to lines and wrinkles and can become thinner and drier while also losing some of their colour. This vitamin packed formula is enriched with a cocktail of ingredients, including the key antioxidants, Açaí Berry and Pomegranate to help protect against environmental aggressors and Vitamin C to improve the look and feel of lips instantly and over time. Whilst a decadent blend of rich butters such as Shea Butter provide comfort, moisture and soothing benefits and help put the smooth in to Lip Smoothie.

To finish the fresh, healthy look High Impact Curling Mascara can be applied, along with a Quick Blush to cheeks for a naturally blushed look.

New Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour is available in six lip-quenching, yet water-resistant, juicy shades ranging from opaque to shimmery: Fig-a-licious, Raisin the Bar, Pink Me Up, Nude-tricious, Goodness Grapecious and Rhubarbie.

The new Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour will be available at Clinique counters nationwide from 1 August 2009.

Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser By Clinique

For the past decade, Clinique scientists have worked with leading institutions from around the world to develop a revolutionary way to help slow down the visible signs of ageing while simultaneously promoting skin’s natural ability for cellular repair.

Armed with this cutting edge research and ground-breaking knowledge of Sirtuins, naturally occurring agents found in the skin which can lead to a youthful appearance, Clinique has been able to create a comprehensive anti-ageing skin care product for the woman looking to slow down the hands of time.

Clinique introduces the new patent-pending Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser. Inspired by Sirtuin activation technology and anti-glycation science and including UVA/UVB SPF 15 sun protection, the new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is a comprehensive anti ageing skin care product that helps to enable skin to prevent and repair the visible signs of ageing simultaneously. Sirtuins are vital to helping extend the function and life of cells. So vital, in fact, that they are known as “longevity genes”.

Inspired by this Sirtuin technology, new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser features a complex which is proprietary to Clinique to help visibly restore a youthful look to ageing skin. Using Isonicotinamide, skin’s natural defense capabilities are heightened.

The new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser also helps skin to boost its natural collagen production, maintain existing collagen, and correct the look of lines and wrinkles more effectively, delivering visible results faster.

Sugars found in ageing skin bind to proteins and form Advanced Glycation End-products(AGEs). The formation of AGEs contributes to the ageing process by exacerbating theaccumulation of damage to the skin. New Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser contains anti-glycation technology. This deceptive “double agent” technology works to help skin protect fragile and healthy natural collagen and elastin so the skin’s look of resilience and suppleness is maintained.

One of the biggest contributors to visible ageing is the sun. New Youth Surge SPF 15 AgeDecelerating Moisturiser contains photo-stable UV protection which helps skin resistpremature ageing by helping to guard against the UVA “ageing” rays which cause futurelines and wrinkles.

While no one can reverse ageing, new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser can certainly slow its appearance down. With use, skin’s visible texture looks improved and noticeably firmer over time. Skin looks younger longer, by visibly correcting the appearance of past damage and delaying future signs of ageing.

The new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is available in three skin-typedformulas.

Very Dry to Dry Skin Types – a luxuriously, velvety cream that delivers intense moisturewhile providing comfort and cushion.

Dry Combination Skin Types – an ultra soft, emollient cream with a whipped texture tomoisturise and protect skin, leaving it soft and supple.

Combination Oily to Oily Skin Types – an exceptionally lightweight cream delivering moisture where it is needed most, leaving skin soft, smooth and feeling fresh. Oil-free.

Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is available at Clinique counters nationwide from 1 March 2009

Clinique, leader in skin care innovation has announced the launch of its latest skin care moisturizer called New Comfort on Call

Clinique, leader in skin care and make-up innovation, has announced the launch of their latest advance in skin care moisturizer – New Comfort on Call.

Clinique, at the forefront of skin care research, has launched a new innovation in anti aging and allergy relief skin care, with the introduction of New Comfort on Call – Allergy Tested Relief Cream, a moisturiser designed for people with visibly reactive skin.

Clinique’s New Comfort on Call enhances the skin’s ability to protect itself against external irritants such as pollutants and airborne particles. Containing the rare Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract, indigenous to Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture region where it is cultivated, this moisturising cream helps to calm the appearance of irritated skin.

Wakayama villagers believe Jabara can prevent pollen allergies from the region’s abundant trees. The villagers eat and drink it continuously to build their resistance to the onslaught of pollen each spring. Even at the height of pollen season, they report that allergies are rare. Clinique’s New Comfort on Call is the first and only skin treatment to include Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract. It is the heart of Clinique’s unique Enviro-Soothe Complex, including potent anti-irritants Mangosteen and Glycyrrhetinic Acid (licorice extract).

Dermatologist tested, and suitable for even very sensitive skin, New Comfort on Call:

– Gives immediate relief to dehydrated, dry skin and visibly calms irritated skin
– Helps shield and protect skin against extreme weather conditions while maintaining moisture
– Is suitable for all skin types that become very dry and taut when exposed to frigid climates
– Helps reduce skin’s visible reactivity and instances of cracked, flaky or rough skin with continued use

Protecting the skin, especially in colder climates, is critical in maintaining its strength and resilience. Skin becomes more susceptible to the harmful effects of common allergens and environmental pollutants, such as airborne particles, when the skin barrier is impaired.

“Aware of the changes in the environment, we wanted to create a product that would not only assist in helping the appearance of reactive skin, but would help skin to naturally cope with fluctuations in weather and humidity. We incorporated a water-binding protein that improves and rebalances the skin’s moisture, building a stronger, more resilient skin barrier, better able to protect against both extreme weather conditions and harmful external airborne particles.” Commented Dr. Tom Mammone, Executive Director of Clinique Research and Development

New Comfort on Call provides an invisible protective shield to strengthen skin’s moisture and lipid barrier function, helping skin to be less susceptible and reactive to certain external triggers over time. New Comfort on Call helps relieve dry, cracked skin while it softens, smoothes and improves skin’s texture and condition. This intense, luxuriously rich cream-balm moisturiser provides immediate comfort and all day hydration.

New Comfort on Call will be available nationwide from 1 February 2009

Clinique Has Launched Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 Which Is A Multi Tasking Three In One Moisturiser That Delivers Effective Anti-Aging

Clinique, a leader in skin care for men, has launched a new innovation in anti-ageing skin care. Clinique is introducing Skin Supplies for Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 to help repair the look of lines and wrinkles, provide defense against future damage and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier function.

Research from Clinique Laboratories confirms that men’s skin ages at a slower rate when compared to women’s skin, however, when men’s skin does begin to age it happens at a far greater rate and often the damage is more visible. New Age Defense Hydrator SPF 15 is the ultimate anti-ageing moisturiser, streamlining grooming for men, without compromising effectiveness as it works to fight the visible signs of ageing.

The understanding that lines and wrinkles are not the only signs of ageing has been gaining popularity. Other factors include enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, loss of firmness and lack of moisture. Because men’s skin tends to be oily, there is a common misconception that they do not need to moisturise. The truth is that all skins need moisture, and in fact, many men need it more since they are constantly stripping away layers of protective skin that holds in moisture during daily shaving. In addition, because the biggest contributor to premature ageing continues to be overexposure to sunlight, broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection is an essential step to help protect skin from future damage with anti-ageing skin care.

The New Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 from Clinique works to help support skin’s own natural collagen production effectively helping to repair the look of lines and wrinkles while restoring visible firmness and elasticity to the skin. It provides UVA/UVB protection using sunscreens that help defend skin against sun damage and photo-ageing. Plus it replaces lost moisture and helps build and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier function.

Clinique Has Launched Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser, The Most Complete Protection Against The Four Major Culprits Of Premature Aging

Clinique Laboratories, at the forefront of skin care research, has launched a new innovation in anti-aging skin care. Introducing New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser, proven to help counteract the negative and visible impacts of stress on the skin.

Research from Clinique into the effects of stress on the skin confirms that internal stress ages skin in a similar way to external stresses like sun and pollution, causing premature aging. When a persons body is under stress, it releases stress hormones which can cause irritation and a loss of immune function in the skin, this then weakens the skins moisture barrier and can contribute to the visible signs of aging.

New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser uses new patented skin care technology designed to defend against the effects of emotional and psychological stress on the skin. Red Microalgae Extract, a patented “stress-neutralising” sea extract is part of the anti-aging formula to help skin neutralise the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

In addition, an advanced innovative sun screen formula offers protection from UVB and UVA rays whilst antioxidants help protect against external aggressors such as pollution. Clinique’s unique Immune Protection Factor formula also works to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier function, maintain its own natural collagen production and also increase the skin’s natural immunity. Skin has never been so protected against the signs of premature aging.

With three skin-typed formulas there is an anti-aging cream for every skin type. The Very Dry to Dry formula is a luxurious cream for immediate comfort. The Dry Combination formula is a soft cream that leaves skin hydrated and protected. The Combination Oily to Oily formula is an ultra-lightweight cream that offers refreshing hydration and a light, comfortable feel.

New Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturiser can be applied every morning afterClinique 3-Step routine and is the perfect partner to Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser for around the clock anti-aging skin care protection.

Like all Clinique makeup and skin care New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser is 100% Fragrance Free, Allergy Tested.
