But you can still get the feel of an exotic getaway with the help of Archipelago Botanicals’ Boticario de Havana bath and body collection. Utilizing tropical ingredients like coffee, jojoba, tobacco flower and botanical extracts of orange, sugar cane and pineapple, the line’s body lotion ($ 29), body wash ($ 29) and other products are rich in antioxidants and alpha hydroxyl acids that help hydrate and reduce the redness associated with dry skin. And their sophisticated, citrusy scent proves appealing to men and women alike.
