Marc Anthony Launches New Body Care

We’re delighted to share some exciting news. Marc Anthony is now entering the Body Care category with three New Exotic Body Care collections!

 Built on a foundation of Argan Oil - known for its revitalizing and skin conditioning properties - this exotic oil line helps you to achieve that healthy, radiant looking skin you desire. The collection is blended with a revitalizing and hydrating combination of Shea Butter and Vitamin E to nourish and moisturize dry, tired skin. This revitalizing collection consists of five products that give skin smoothness and sheen without heaviness.  

Sulfate Free Body Wash / Hydrating Body Lotion /    Ultra Nourishing Body Butter / Dry Body Oil /  Extra Hydrating Hand Cream
We love Macadamia Oil as the foundation of this collection for its unique composition, which is similar to natural body oils. Its ability to penetrate the skin helps to keep moisture in, soothing sensitive skin while protecting it from further damage. The entire collection is blended with a soothing blend of HibiscusGreen Tea and Vitamin E to calm and correct stressed, dry, damaged skin. This collection consists of five rejuvenating products that help to soothe your skin and bring back its vitality.

Sulfate Free Body Wash / Hydrating Body Lotion /    Ultra Nourishing Body Butter / Dry Body Oil /  Extra Hydrating Hand Cream
Nature’s true gift: Tropical Coconut Oil. Known for its extra hydrating and nourishing properties it penetrates the skin easily allowing rich hydration without a greasy feel. It helps to return your skin’s natural moisture. The entire collection is also blended with a nourishing mixture of ChamomileWhite Tea and Shea Butter to penetrate dehydrated skin for extra moisture. This extra hydrating collection consists of five products that return your skin to a place of moisture, health and softness

Another exciting collaboration for OPI!

Announced this morning, OPI will be partnering with Ford Motor Company to celebrate 50 years of Ford Mustang with a limited edition lacquer collection launching in July 2014.
This new collection will deliver elements of sophistication, luxury, power and style fitting for both OPI & Mustang, starting with the collection’s hero shade ‘Race Red’.
 The collection’s hero shade, Race Red, is a tribute to one of Mustang’s most iconic colors. 
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car, and we are excited to be working with OPI on 
an exclusive collection that captures the spirit of our iconic car,” says Melanie Banker, Mustang 
marketing manager. “There is no better way to express Mustang’s bold personality and the 
excitement it creates than through color.” 
Celebrating an Icon 
The Ford Mustang is about to become the newest member of a very exclusive club – vehicles in 
continuous production for 50 years. Over the last five decades, Mustang has gained worldwide 
popularity and has become an enduring part of pop culture with more than 9.2 million Ford 
Mustangs sold and roughly 3,000 appearances on film and TV – including its upcoming big 
screen appearance as the hero car in “Need for Speed.” 
Mustang’s unique combination of style, performance and affordability established an entirely 
new class of sporty cars, and its next chapter unfolds with the all-new Ford Mustang. Its most 
advanced version yet, the 2015 Mustang features an all-new sophisticated design – clearly 
inspired by its 50-year heritage – and a host of new innovative technologies and connectivity
