Looking better with no extra effort sounds too good to be true, right?

Well, not according to our friend and beauty guru Gretta Monahan!

When she visited our show, she gave us the lowdown on five new products that aim to solve common beauty problems that we can all relate to -- from dry hands and chapped lips to crow’s feet and wrinkles. (Ack!)

And even better -- she tested them on herself (AND on viewers right in our studio) to see if they live up to the hype!

PROBLEM: Dry Hands
LATEST TREND: Hand, Finger and Nail Masks
GRETTA'S RECOMMENDATIONS: Nannette de Gaspe Hands Masque, $85 and Le Mini Macaron Nail Mask; $4.50

 


"Masks have concentrated ingredients in them," Gretta says. "That’s why they target and they infuse faster and better."

Gretta suggests leaving either of these masks on for 15 minutes at a time. Plus, you can reuse one Nannette de Gaspe Hands Masque up to 3 times. Cha-ching!

Watch two viewers try the masks in the video above.

PROBLEM: Dry, Chapped Lips
LATEST TREND: Lip Mask
GRETTA'S RECOMMENDATION: KNC All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask, $24.99 for a pack of 5

 


"This is perfect prep before you put on lipstick," Gretta says of getting plump and hydrated lips.

PROBLEM: Foundation Blending
LATEST TREND: Sonic-Powered Sponge
GRETTA'S RECOMMENDATION: Color Me Pro Edition Applicator, $68


 


"[With] 15,000 pulses per minute," Gretta explains of the product, "it’s much more active in blending than you can just do with your hands."

(Who else is guilty of using their hands … ? ‘Cause we are! 🙈 )

"It’s really more than just an applicator," she continues. "It’s a mini facial treatment."

Plus, the beauty pro says you can use this with liquid AND powder foundations.

Score!

PROBLEM: Crow’s Feet, Wrinkles Around Eyes
LATEST TREND: LED Light Therapy
GRETTA'S RECOMMENDATION: DRx SpectraLite Eye Care Pro, $159
 


"LED light therapy has been going on for years," Gretta says -- and she explains it’s been used to reduce wrinkles and improve under-eye tone.

Gretta claims you could see a difference in up to 2 weeks with this product.
