New Bumble & Bumble Bb. Gel and Gellac Styling Gels Perfected at Fashion Week

Bumble and Bumble Gel and Gelac

B&B says their new Bb. Gel ($24; 5 oz) and Gellac ($24; 4.2 oz) styling gels were developed backstage at Fashion Week.

Both products go on sale March 9. Bb. Gel can be applied, shaped, dried and easily brushed out to create amazingly soft shapes with memory and hold. It’s perfect for spring’s neat, simple pony.

Gellac, on the other hand, is B&B’s powerhouse product and based on an old compound called Gafquat 732, which has long been used to create extreme, shiny shapes for photo shoots but is close to impossible to rinse out. B&B’s team of chemists solved the problem with Gellac, making it removable with any Bumble and bumble shampoo. It’s “a product for those who like to take risks and experiment with bold styles.”

This, I gotta try. 🙂


Super Saturday

What’s shaking, ladies? Do anything fun today? I just got back from seeing The Watchmen with El Hub and really liked it. I hadn’t read the graphic novel, but the movie impressed me. I went in expecting standard superhero fare (which I also like) but was pleasantly surprised.

It’s more a parody of superheroes than a traditional superhero story. Time Magazine lists The Watchmen graphic novel among its best 100 novels of all time.

A comic book one of the best 100 novels of all time? Cool.

  1. Evening Karen! Today I was up in wine country and it was such a fabulous day! Went to Rutherford Grill for lunch (so delish) and then went to the Castello di Amorosa winery then Dean & DeLuca’s THEN the outlets, whew. I got a freakin FAB salmon pink leather purse at the Coach outlet for $101 bucks! I am over the moon about this find 🙂

    I want to see The Watchmen, I love movies made from graphic novels. One of my fav movies is Frank Miller’s Sin City.

    I want to see Watchmen too. I hope to see it at the IMAX.

    I have to tell you that I know you are a fan of the Twilight series. Well, I finally got around to reading the books this week and OMG… how did I miss these books for so long? I prefer book 1 & 4 but loved the whole series. I can’t wait til the end of March to see the movie on DVD.

    Hi Karen,
    Your Rachel Ray banner ad is misleading. When you click on it, it takes you to a website for an Acai berry weightloss product. If you research the web, it’s pretty much a scam. Dr. Oz nor Oprah endorse any Acai weight loss product, and their lawyers are fighting to remove their names associated with it. Caveat emptor.

    I really want to see watchmen!!

    I love buble and bumble styling products (like tonic and prep and brilliantine) BUT their shampoos are just not so good for e. I want to try out those gels so bad.. but if you need to wash them out with a bb. shampoo……OH DEAR!

  5. Sarahc says:

    Yeah! I can’t wait to try Stella Summer. I loved the first Stella perfume. Thanks for the tip Karen. 🙂

  6. Daya says:

    To be honest, I liked the old format better. It was easier to navigate. 🙂

  7. Catherine says:

    Oooh, can’t wait to smell that new Stella. I really liked the original, and this one sounds yummy. And omg… that styling gel from B&B sounds like exactly what I’m looking for. Their products are just so expensive though, I’m not sure I can justify it, especially right now. I’ll keep it in mind though.

  8. Michelle says:

    I’ve heard that movie was good but since it’s a long one I’m going to wait until it’s out on DVD. My family and I went to the local Renaissance Festival. The weather was perfect for it and we had a really great time.

    Ooh I’d love to try Kiehl’s wave defining spray. I’ve been letting my hair air dry for the past few weeks and I’m still looking for products to help my waves stay sleek and frizz free.
