Prod­ucts to Help You Look Your Best

IS­LAND IN­DUL­GENCE Maybe you’re not able to take a jaunt to Cuba. 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. Stop in at the Sani­bel Is­land Book­shop ( 239- 472- 5223, sani­bel­book­shop. com) on Sani­bel to check out these and other items from Ar­chi­pel­ago Botan­i­cals.

TRESS TAMER Smooth and sleek or wavy and won­der­ful? No mat­ter the look you want to cre­ate for your hair, Gio­vanni Eco Chic Cos­met­ics’ 2chic Ul­tra- Vol­ume Am­pli­fy­ing Styling Gel ($ 8.99) can help you achieve it. Uti­liz­ing in­gre­di­ents like tan­ger­ine but­ter and pa­paya that help nour­ish and strengthen hair, the gel gives even the finest, limpest strands the oomph, con­trol and hold they need for pretty, pol­ished styles. Find it at area lo­ca­tions of Tar­get ( tar­get. com) and Whole Foods Mar­ket ( whole­foods­mar­ket. com).

AT YOUR FIN­GER­TIPS No time for a man­i­cure ap­point­ment? Make your nails look as if you stopped at the sa­lon from the com­fort of your home with Nails Inc.’ s Gel Ef­fect Pol­ish ($ 14). Avail­able in shades like St. James ( red), Bond Street ( vi­o­let) and Porch­ester Square ( gray), the polishes fea­ture a wide brush for easy ap­pli­ca­tion and a self- lev­el­ing and plump­ing for­mula for pro­fes­sion­al­look­ing, long- last­ing re­sults. And there’s no UV lamp or pricy treat­ment in­volved to end up with the same kind of gel- look fin­ish you’d get at the sa­lon. Pick up the polishes at Sephora at Co­conut Point in Es­tero ( 239- 390- 9889, sephora. com) and the Sephora in­side JCPen­ney at Edi­son Mall in Fort My­ers ( 239- 936- 8101).
