Bathing Beauty: Eden Sassoon

By | bathing beauties | 9 Comments

Growing up as the daughter of Vidal Sassoon, arguably the most famous hairstylist in the world, has its advantages. Like great hair, free services, and a wealth of beauty wisdom. Eden Sassoon took this lifetime of knowledge and  turned it into the first-ever Finishing Studio. Following in her father’s legendary footsteps, EDEN (the salon and the woman), is committed to providing women with value, convenience and quality at a fraction of the price. The Malibu-chic studio offers a calm reprieve from the stresses of daily life. EDEN allows the woman-on-the-go the luxury of  mani/ pedis, makeup lessons, blowouts (I just had one and it was fast and fabulous!), updos, and “dusting” (a quick trim), within 65 minutes, with prices ranging from $20 to $45 per service.

I asked the woman behind the brand to answer my favorite beauty questions. Read on for Eden’s must-have products, sage beauty advice and professional tips.

What are your Top 5, can’t live without products? 
1. Egyptian Magic. If I were deserted on an island…this would be “the product” I couldn’t leave behind. I use it for everything. It lifts your face and gives your skin that intangible glow we are all looking for. It’s **wonderful especially for dry skin. I used it on my hair, I use it on the kids (dry chapped lips), I use it to remove eye makeup, like I said, I use it for everything.
2. The Benefit High Brow. Every woman needs a great highlighter, whether it’s for your eyes, cupid’s bow, temples, or cheeks. Benefit’s High Brow is my go-to for an immediate lift. As you get older you need this!
3. Clarisonic. Once you use the Clarisonic brush, you will never, ever go back. Not only do I use it on my face, but also my neck and chest. It cleans your skin but also exfoliates at the same time giving your skin such a fresh, luminous look and feel.
4. Smashbox Brow Tech To Go. As women, we all know that the brows are an essential part of our face. Some of us are less blessed in this area than others. Smashbox has a brow pencil that is the best I’ve ever used. No brush is necessary and it fills in the gaps seamlessly allowing your brows to do their job- frame those eyes.
5. theBalm Plump Your Pucker Lipgloss. My favorite shade is “Water My Melon.” It’s fresh, juicy, and gives you that pouty look so I can blame it on the lipgloss.

What is your all-time favorite product?
L’Oreal Double Extend Lasting Mascara. 100% my all time favorite product.{ It’s the blue with the gold hinge just in case.} Why? If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the mascara is the frame. (People always compliment me on my eyes. It’s my framework).

What product do you buy in bulk?
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. Its a fresh and hydrating creme compact. I need one in every bag! My gym bag, my purse, etc.

Favorite hair product?
Of course, my brother’s moisture line Sojourn. Hydration for dry or damaged hair.

You moisturize your face with…
Egyptian Magic. I can’t help it! I also use bb creme because it gives a good color and also has sunscreen (but honestly I use Egyptian Magic).

Favorite body product?
This is a 2-parter. I use a cream for the dryer skin areas (hands, feet, knees, elbows…) and a lotion for the rest of my body. Lotion doesn’t clog the pores, and I use Bath and Body Works Sugar Vanilla for both.

Favorite beauty secret you’ve picked up along the way?
Pretty is as pretty does.

Beauty icon you admire?
I have a few, but the one man that I’ve watched for 39 years with discipline, grace, dignity, and style would be my father, Vidal Sassoon.
