I’m super impressed with the NEW Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair anti-aging skincare collection which was launched in March 2011. The difference is in its Accelerated Retinol SA which is formulated with Stabilized Retinol and glucose complex that help minimize the irritation often caused by other Retinol products to make it possible/comfortable to use daily. According to Neutrogena the NEW Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair skincare collection has been clinically proven to improve overall skin texture in one week and help diminish the look of deep wrinkles after four weeks. Other ingredients include Hyluronic Acid.

I’ve tried Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair (I love it & I will continue to use) and aside from its skicare benefits described above I noticed that the collection which includs: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer SPF 30, eye cream, and moisturizer NIGHT, are all very hydrating, have a clean scent, and easily absorbed.

Jay Manuel Interviews With Marta Walsh

Blast from the past. I stumbled upon a vintage interview I did with the fabulous Jay Manuel from back in early 2008. I actually had the honor to speak to Mr Manuel over the phone and he’s incredibly fascinating person with an uplifting energy. So here it is. In this interview Jay talks about how his passion for style began, his first break working for a famous opera singer, his own cosmetics line: Manual Override, and what a day is really like for him at a major award show.

Jay Manuel

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with style and beauty begin?
Jay Manuel: When I was quite young, Prince Charles and Lady Diana got married and I was obsessed with the train. Also, in high school when I was on a science track and studying pre-med, I was always fascinated with style. My sister and I laugh about it now, if you look at pictures of me and my room growing up, all my walls had magazine ads. I even had double-page ads from Saks Fifth Avenue. I didn’t even know what Saks meant.
