Confidence Boosters for the Winter!

Confidence comes when you look and feel good.
There is something to be said about having clear skin and putting your best face forward (definitely a confidence booster). In need of skincare products to help you get there?
Bioré Skincare has you covered with a variety of products to help you achieve that #flawless complexion you have been dreaming of. Oh, and the real Winter is coming up—the perfect excuse to test out these efficacious skincare products that so many teens and young adults turn to.
Achieve clearer skin in just two days with Bioré Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam. The foamy formula is fun to use and an effective cleanser. The cleansing foam is made for combination skin, gently removing daily surface dirt and oil to achieve a deep clean without overcleansing or stripping skin of its moisture. The thick, rich foam formula is like washing your face with a cloud—Baking Soda cleansing agents deep clean pores while Salicylic Acid treats and prevents breakouts, ensuring your face looks as clean and clear as it feels. ($6.49; available at all mass retailers and drugstores nation-wide.)
Melt away the stress (and dirt and oil) with Bioré Charcoal Self Heating One Minute Mask.Infused with natural charcoal, the mask opens pores and draws out and dissolves 2.5 times more dirt, oil, and surface toxins than a basic cleanser. It finishes with a cooling sensation for tingly-smooth skin in just one minute. Mix this charcoal face mask with water to increase heating action by 2x. Talk about turning up the heat. ($7.99 (for 4 masks); available at all mass retailers and drug stores nation-wide.) (Tip: Multi- Mask with the Self Heating One Minute Mask and a Deep Cleansing Pore Strip for double the fun.)
Say hello to clean pores! Stop picking and squeezing and start using the Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips. With purifying charcoal powder, the strip acts like a magnet to draw out and absorb excess dirt and oil, reducing shine. The best part – you can see the results right there on the strip. The skin will be left feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily than before. When used weekly, he will have fewer clogged pores and the appearance of pores will actually diminish. ($6.49; available at all mass retailers & drug stores nation-wide.)

Free Broadway Shows Come Up Next week!

Still, strive to save money for a ticket of Broadway show? You don’t need to do that anymore, especially in this November and December.

Free Broadway at The Shops at Columbus Circle kicks off this Monday 11/12 at 5 p.m. and features performances by School of Rock, Kinky Boots, Anastasia and Be More Chill. This is the event is the first of a 5-week series and is FREE and open to the public.

Here are the shows coming on Nov. 12!

School of Rock, The Musical


Based on the hit film, this is a hilarious musical that follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.

Kinky Boots


Kinky Boots tells the uplifting and heartwarming tale of Charlie Price, a young man reluctantly taking over his family’s struggling shoe factory and looking for a fresh idea. Charlie meets and finds inspiration in Lola and together, they discover that it takes a good friend to make a great pair.



The mystery that fascinated the world is now the musical that’s captivating Broadway. A rumor is spreading across the land: the missing princess of the Romanov empire may still be alive. Then, a young woman appears with no name and no family, but with the drive to discover her destiny. As she sets out on an epic journey in search of her past, clues unlock and memories return. Could she be the one they call Anastasia?



Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there’s never been a better time in history to be yourself—especially if you’re a loser…geek…or whatever.

The Shops at Columbus Circle are located at 10 Columbus Circle.

The Best Nail Polish Colors for Winter

Winter is around the corner – but don’t go and retire your favorite fall colors anytime soon. Celebrity manicurist and owner of As U Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley chose five shades that make for the ultimate manicure to transition from fall-to-winter. From a classic neutral to hot cocoa-inspired hues, these five polishes can be worn throughout the upcoming seasons.

1.Cozy, Caramel-Colored Neutral


Can’t go wrong with the classics. A warm-toned neutral is chic and minimalistic, and compliments anything you’re wearing. Switch things up, and opt for a matte finish instead of your glossy go-to.

2.Gilded in Gold

 This time of the year is gold’s time to shine. It is always sure to dazzle – whether you can use it as an accent nail or a complete, show-stopping metallic manicure. It compliments all holiday color palettes effortlessly, making it versatile enough to bounce from season to season.

3.Forest Green

Nothing says holiday bliss more than a true shade of green. Somewhere in-between a medium-toned moss and a deep forest green, hunter green is an eye-catching color suited for fall, winter, and beyond.


4.Soft Chocolate

I’m loving cozy, chocolate colored nails this season. The muted neutral isn’t too flashy, while still standing apart from your average nude. Milk chocolate manicures are universally flattering on any skin tone, and a tasteful (and tasty) way to transition into the cold winter months.


Cranberry is a fun and festive twist on a classic red manicure. The gorgeous color will add a touch of glamour to your look, and serve as a subtle compliment to all of the seasonal décor.
