Prod­ucts to Help You Look Your Best

FIN­ISH IT OFF

It takes time to high­light your cheek­bones for a nat­u­ral-look­ing glow or to per­fectly blend your eye­shadow shades. So, make your makeup last with help from some new of­fer­ings from COL-LAB. In­fused with ap­ple and rose­hip ex­tract, the Clos­ing Time 3-in-1 Mat­ti­fy­ing Makeup Set­ting Mist ($12.99) re­duces shine while keep­ing ev­ery­thing in place. The Grand Fi­nale 3-in-1 Hy­drat­ing Makeup Set­ting Mist ($12.99) pro­vides mois­tur­iza­tion plus the same kind of stay­ing power, this time with vi­ta­min-rich peach and gin­seng ex­tracts. (It can also be used to prep skin be­fore ap­ply­ing makeup.) If you’d rather sweep than spray, try the Set the Stage Soft-Fo­cus Translu­cent Fin­ish­ing Pow­der ($14.99). Com­pat­i­ble with all skin tones, the ul­tra­fine, translu­cent pow­der works like a soft-fo­cus fil­ter to fin­ish off your look. Find these and other COL-LAB prod­ucts at lo­cal Sally Beauty stores.

GOT ( GOAT) MILK?

You might have goat milk in your kitchen, but it can also be a hard-work­ing part of your beauty rou­tine. Dio­nis has been har­ness­ing the power of the in­gre­di­ent for more than 35 years. Be­cause the pH of goat milk is close to that of hu­man skin, it ab­sorbs eas­ily and helps keep skin hy­drated. Dio­nis in­cor­po­rates it in a num­ber of paraben-, gluten- and sul­fate-free all-nat­u­ral skin­care prod­ucts, in­clud­ing hand creams, body lo­tions and body washes. One new ad­di­tion to the line is the Co­conut Cream Lip Balm ($4.99) that’s like a dessert for your kisser, thanks to its sweet scent—a blend of co­conut, sugar and vanilla bean. New col­lec­tions of liq­uid hand soaps ($8.99) and sugar scrubs ($13.99) come in fra­grances like laven­der and vanilla bean. Head to area lo­ca­tions of Cracker Bar­rel Old Coun­try Stores or Fra­grance Out­let at the Miro­mar Out­lets in Es­tero (239-992-9713, fra­grance­out­let.com) to find Dio­nis prod­ucts lo­cally.

TIME- SAV­ING SOAP

A good mul­ti­tasker can be much ap­pre­ci­ated if your morn­ing rou­tine feels more rushed than re­laxed. Honey Belle’s loofah soaps ($8) cleanse, scrub and ex­fo­li­ate all at once, so you can save time with­out skimp­ing on your skin care. Made with co­conut oil and glyc­erin, they help keep skin soft and mois­tur­ized. The eco-friendly sponge is cre­ated from a gourd plant, which is dipped in soap that’s free of chem­i­cal de­ter­gents and gen­tle enough for sen­si­tive skin. And as part of Honey Belle’s #SOAPSFORSOULS project, ev­ery time a loofah soap is pur­chased, an­other is do­nated to some­one in need. So, you’re help­ing oth­ers while help­ing your­self! Three pop­u­lar soap scents—Eu­ca­lyp­tus Pep­per­mint, Laven­der Rain and Green Tea Cu­cum­ber—can now be pur­chased at the Ulta Beauty stores at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort My­ers (239-334-0659, ulta.com), Co­conut Point in Es­tero (239-992-0361) and Co­ral­wood Cen­ter in Cape Coral (239-458-3522).

RE­SPECT THE REEFS

We all know that sun­screen is im­por­tant for pro­tect­ing our skin from harm­ful UV rays. The Trop­icS­port sun­screen and skin-care line takes that a step fur­ther by of­fer­ing prod­ucts that also pro­tect ocean reefs and their in­hab­i­tants from harm. In­stead of chem­i­cals like oxy­ben­zone, octi­nox­ate, avoben­zone and oc­tocry­lene—which can cause coral bleach­ing and death and dis­ease in fish—Trop­icS­port’s min­eral sun­screens use zinc ox­ide and ti­ta­nium diox­ide, which sit on top of the skin and act as a phys­i­cal blocker to de­flect UV rays. The SPF 30 sun­screen is avail­able in a va­ri­ety of sizes and con­fig­u­ra­tions, in­clud­ing a new face stick ($12.99) and con­tain­ers that can be clipped onto bags, boats and other spots ($9.29-$17.99) so you’re al­ways pre­pared. And for an of­ten-for­got­ten area there’s a new SPF 15 co­conut-fla­vored lip balm ($5.99). Pick up Trop­icS­port prod­ucts lo­cally at Beach Stuff in Fort My­ers (239-481-8177).

TOTI Me­dia, Inc. and/or its af­fil­i­ates can­not be held re­spon­si­ble for price changes, writ­ing mis­takes or prod­ucts out of stock.
