Want Oscars-Level Glam? We Know How to Get It On Demand

Feb/22/2015 at 06:37 PM ET

“Sure,” you think, “I too could have amazing nails like Oscar nominees if someone came to my house while I was getting ready.” Well, it’s now as easy as pulling up an app on your phone. And to prove that point, PEOPLE editor Jennifer Garcia Allen (who knows a little something about having to get glammed up for the red carpet — she’s reporting from the Oscars tonight!) did just that for an event last week.

This Stylish Cocktail Ring Alerts You to Text Messages, Emails and More (Yes, Really!)

Jan/22/2015 at 10:59 AM ET

Let’s be honest: Most wearable tech pieces are male-friendly. But we just found a smart accessory that is super-useful and super-chic. (Read: You’re going to actually want to be seen wearing it.) Thanks to the Ringly “Stargaze” ring you won’t miss an appointment, important email, text or Tinder alert ever again.

Here’s how it works: the chic piece of jewelry syncs to the Ringly app on your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth. It senses your phone from up to 30 feet away to make sure you are in range to get all those important notifications. It’s also water resistant, and the ring box doubles as a charging station (so make sure you don’t throw it away!). But despite all the cool features, we’d wear these rings anyway — they’re just that pretty.

Now you have to decide if you like the Onyx or Moonstone style best. And if you’re a first time Joyus shopper, you get 10% off orders over $50 plus free shipping by entering PEOPLE10 at checkout. (That’s close to $20 off the $195 pricetag!)

For more gift ideas (also eligible for that 10% discount), go here.

Emmy Rossum on Her Style: 'I Always Like to Look Put Together and Smart'

Nov/25/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Emmy Rossum is known for her always-trendy street style. (Need proof? See here, here and here.) So when we had the opportunity to chat with the Shameless actress at a recent YouTube and Motorola event (she’s also brand ambassador for the tech company), the first thing we asked her was the secret behind her spot-on styling.

What Is This Crazy-Looking Beauty Tool and Why Do You Need One Now?

Oct/27/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

It used to be that, if you wanted to get microdermabrasion (the treatment that uses very fine grains to buff away the top layer of skin, leaving your complexion smoother and more flawless), you had to go to a dermatologist’s office and pay a lot without the help of insurance. And hey, it was worth it, especially since it’s one of the few non-surgical ways to get more youthful skin. But now, with the advent of at-home microdermabrasion tools, you can reap all the benefits without having to drop serious cash. We tested out a whole bunch of the tools and this is our favorite.

There are three colors of this microdermabrasion tool and all of them come with a set of attachments, designed for combination skin, typical skin and even sensitive skin (the latter is gentle enough for anyone to use).

So, here’s what to expect once you start using this guy: Your pores will be less noticeable, your skin will feel softer and more supple, plus your makeup will go on more smoothly. It’s like the best exfoliation you’ve ever experienced, only it won’t leave you all red and inflamed.

Now, we know it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s way less than what you’d pay for a visit to the derm for the treatment and this is something you’ll have and can use for the rest of your life. Plus, you can share it with your significant other (that’s what this editor does!). And if you’ve never shopped on Joyus before, you get an extra 10% off on orders over $50, plus free shipping, with the discount code PEOPLE10, bringing the cost down to under $150.

Shop it by going here or clicking on the product in the product tray just below the video.

We love using ours in conjunction with this silicone face-washing tool — the combo has left our skin smoother and more flawless than anything else we’ve tried.

The Most Genius Water Bottle Ever -- Now in Gorgeous New Finishes

Sep/22/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When we first shared these bottles (which keep drinks cold for a full 24 hours and hot for 12 hours) with you, they sold out almost instantly. And now that the water bottles are offered in three gorgeous finishes, we have a feeling they’re going to fly off the proverbial shelves yet again. What we’re saying is: If you want one of these, you better move fast. And if you want one of these with a discount (10% off the price!), you better scroll down to get our exclusive coupon code.

It seems odd to say what we’re about to say considering we’re talking about a water bottle, but here goes: We can’t walk down the street carrying one of these without getting complimented and asked, “Where did you get that?” Well, here’s our answer: You can shop it right here. (And if you’re a first-time Joyus customer, get an extra 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping, of by entering PEOPLE10 at checkout.)

And if you’ve watched the above video, you’ve realized that these water bottles don’t just look good; they’re also designed in a pretty genius way that keeps beverages cold for a whole day and hot for half a day. That means you can leave mug of coffee or tea sitting out in the morning and when you get home from work, it’ll still be warm. We also love the bottle because it doesn’t create condensation (perfect for when you want to throw it in your bag and not get everything else in there all wet).

There are two sizes and three finishes to choose from — this editor has three (one for water, one for wine; it’s great for outdoor picnics or BYOB restaurants since you don’t have to worry about breakage or white vino getting tepid, plus one wooden one that she uses as a vase).

Which style do you plan to get?

New Fave Beauty Tool: It's Like a Pulsating Face Brush, Only Way Better

Sep/08/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When one of the editors on the style team shared that she’d stopped using her face brush, we all assumed she’d gone crazy. But then she told us what she’d replaced it with (the product featured in the video below), and we each ordered one, tried it and became converts. There are a lot of reasons we love this facial cleansing tool more than the brush: It’s gentler, it makes our skin smoother, it doesn’t leave our faces bright red after a wash (the worst), it doesn’t have a brush head that has to get replaced periodically and most amazingly, once you use it to wash your face, you flip it around and it does something else for your skin.

Yes, it’s definitely an investment, but it’s a smart one. After all, you can use this face cleanser forever since there’s no brush that gets all grimy and gross. Plus, it’s a two-in-one tool because it’s cleans your skin and, as we show in the video, when flipped around, this baby is also anti-aging.

You’ve got three options: There’s one for normal/sensitive skin, one for combination skin and one for ultra-sensitive skin. All of them come with a charger (which, take it from us, you won’t have to break out very frequently — these last and last).

You can shop the product by clicking on the images in the video above or going here. As always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you get an extra 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping, by entering PEOPLE10 at checkout.

And be sure to check out more stuff we love, including great beauty products and fashion finds.
