- FIRMx Peeling Gel visibly exfoliates by rolling, lifting and sweeping away when massaged onto skin. Multi-action pineapple, pomegranate and keratinase enzymes and cellulose effectively exfoliate for a smoother, fresher, newer-looking complexion without drying, irritating or causing undue stress to skin.

T3 Hair Tools
This holiday season we have been on the hunt for the best hair-styling tools. We have been working with Lisa, our fairy-hair godmother, and owner of Salon833 Chicago to maintain healthy, beautiful locks. What we LOVE about T3, is that they are specifically designed to nurture your tresses, reduce drying and styling times, seal in moisture, and ensure head-turning definition. These products are a total game changer.
- Meet the hairdryer more healthy than air drying! The T3 Featherweight 2 Hairdryer will make your hair more beautiful every time you blowdry. The secret? It’s powered by proprietary T3 Tourmaline and advanced SoftAire technology, that helps it retain natural moisture for healthy, soft and shiny results. A specially-engineered fan generates a high volume of air and weaves it through the dryer at a soft, gentle speed, enriching it with negative ions and far infrared heat. The enriched airflow exits the dryer in a wide cone shape that dries large sections of hair-fast. Negative ions in the airflow cancel static and quickly seal the cuticle, which helps hair retain natural moisture, reduces frizz and enhances shine.
- The T3 Twirl Convertible Curling Iron creates gorgeous curls with long-lasting shine. T3 Digital SinglePass technology heats up fast and ensures even, consistent heating along the tourmaline + ceramic barrel as you style for frizz-free, polished curls in one twirl. The best part? You can also purchase interchangeable barrel sizes for versatility and explore endless looks.
- The SinglePass Luxe is designed to work in just one pass with consistent, even heating along the plates, which is the secret to one-pass styling and long-lasting results without exposing hair to unnecessary heat. When heated, the unique T3 Tourmaline + Ceramic styling surface emits negative ions that seal the cuticle, eliminate frizz and deliver shiny, long-lasting results.
