Gretta's Got It: Pro-products of the Hollywood home
If you have ever dreamed of having professional beauty and fashion products at home, tonight you are in luck. Gretta is letting you in on a secret of a few of the hottest products found in the Hollywood home. But the best part? You don't have to be a star to have them too, and Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Ever dreamt of having access to the beauty and fashion products of the pros? Well, I found a few industry secrets that even the Hollywood heavyweights use right in their own homes. Now you can too, come with me."
Gretta Monahan: "We all know that washing your face is the first step in keeping your skin healthy, but this is the celeb secret to keeping them camera ready and clean."
Oprah Winfrey, Cameron Diaz, even Ben Stiller swear by the Clarisonic Facial Brush and use it everyday.
Gretta Monahan: "It's the same tool that professional spas use in your facial, but this one is safe to use everyday."
Experts say the brush uses painless sound waves to gently remove makeup, dirt, bacteria and toxins from your skin.
Gretta Monahan: "What's cool is it comes with a cleaner, but you can use your favorites."
Keeping your skin exfoliated and squeaky clean.
Gretta Monahan: "Another spa service that I lust for? Microdermabrasion, and with this you don't need an appointment."
The Crystal Lift machine is the insider's microderm treatment
Gretta Monahan: "A single microderm treatment costs as much as this entire machine."
Stars like Hayden Pannetterri and Molly Sims love it, and even the casts of Las Vegas and Desperate Housewives are hooked.
Gretta Monahan: "I love this service, I think that the microdermabrasian is the best way to keep the wrinkles away."
And in 10 minutes, makers of this machine say it will resurface the skin without abrasive scrubs or stinging skin.
Gretta Monahan: "It's really easy to use. The crystals exfoliate the skin and the vacuum sucks it all away."
It also comes with a teaching CD, so you'll be a pro.
Gretta Monahan: "But wrinkles don't just affect your face; they can ruin your style. For smoothing out fabrics, the fashion industry depends on professional steamers, and those in the know have one in their home."
From the runway to movie sets, for over six decades the Jiffy Steamer has been a behind the scenes must. Even the White House has one.
Gretta Monahan: "I use the professional model in my stores, but this one is made in the home and it's much cheaper."
The steamer is faster and easier than an iron, and cuts down on trips to the dry cleaners because it'll steams out odors while it straightens.
Gretta Monahan: "And this is linen water. You can even add this to your steamer and freshen up things like drapes and bedding."
Gretta Monahan: "After years of shaving, what beauty junkie hasn't even at least thought about laser hair removal."
But treatments can be expensive, and take a long time to see results. So, celebs like Hilary Duff, Paula Abdul, and Melissa Rivers use the No!No!.
Gretta Monahan: "You can zap hair in the privacy of your own home."
It's maker's say there is no mess, no cuts, and no burns, but you have to be patient.
Gretta Monahan: "You have to use it continually, but overtime the company promises you can reduce hair up to 70 percent."
You can use it almost anywhere.
Gretta Monahan: "But on the face, this is a real no, no."
Gretta Monahan: "Well there you have it. A sneak peak into the professional products in the Hollywood Homes it will have you looking like a star.
