Prod­ucts to Help You Look Your Best

WIPE AWAY THE DAY

You know you should take off your makeup ev­ery night be­fore go­ing to bed. But some nights you’re just too tired for a ma­jor face-wash­ing process. Thank good­ness for cleans­ing cloths for those times when ex­haus­tion (or lazi­ness) is set­ting in. Dick­in­son’s Orig­i­nal Witch Hazel Daily Re­fresh­ingly Clean Cleans­ing Cloths ($5.99) are 15 per­cent larger than other cleans­ing cloths to help wipe off ev­ery last bit of makeup, dirt and oil. Botan­i­cal ex­tracts of aloe and witch hazel tone and re­fresh the skin, and the soap- and fra­grance-free cloths are gen­tle enough for most skin types. Pick up a pack­age at lo­cal CVS, Wal­greens and Tar­get stores.

HIT RE­FRESH

If you treat your­self to a blowout, you want it to last. Paul Mitchell’s In­vis­i­blewear Boomerang Restyling Mist ($15) helps re­store and re­vive salon blowouts, and can re­fresh hair post-work­out as well. The mois­tur­iz­ing light­weight for­mula, which fights frizz and de­tan­gles your tresses, is in­fused with vel­vet flower to leave hair soft and bouncy. No one will sus­pect that you’re work­ing sec­ond-day hair. Find Paul Mitchell prod­ucts at lo­cal sa­lons like Stu­dio 44 in Fort My­ers (239-362-0253, stu­dio44hair.com), Touch Salon and Spa in Fort My­ers (239-454-9933, touchspasa­lon.com) and Kate’s Kuts in Bonita Springs (239-947-5283, kates-kuts.com).

A BRUSH WITH GREAT­NESS

When you just don’t have time for an ex­ten­sive hair-care rou­tine, grab one of Cricket’s new mul­ti­task­ing brushes in­stead. Skip the vo­lu­mizer and reach for the Ul­tra Smooth Co­conut Ther­mal Brushes ($18.75-$23.75), which are in­fused with co­conut oil and ker­atin pro­tein to give hair body and shine. Heat-re­sis­tant and anti-static bris­tles and a rub­ber­ized tex­tur­ized han­dle pro­vide com­fort and con­trol. The Cop­per Clean Brush Col­lec­tion ($8.50$11.95) helps get rid of scalp buildup with­out the need for a clar­i­fy­ing sham­poo. Bris­tles in­fused with cop­per prop­er­ties mas­sage the scalp while re­duc­ing buildup and mak­ing your tresses shiny. Get the brushes at the Ulta stores at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort My­ers (239-334-0659, ulta.com), Co­conut Point in Es­tero (239-9920361) and Co­ral­wood Cen­ter in Cape Coral (239458-3522).

WHIP IT GOOD

What if some­thing that looked like dessert was ac­tu­ally good for you? That’s the case with Man­gia­cotti’s new Whipped Body Wash ($16.95) and Whipped Body Lo­tion ($17.95). They’re dis­pensed just like whipped cream. But in­stead of up­ping your calo­rie count, they hy­drate your skin with es­sen­tial oils and plant-de­rived in­gre­di­ents such as shea but­ter. The weight­less, non­greasy for­mu­la­tions ab­sorb quickly, and the body wash can even dou­ble as a shave cream. Both are paraben-free and avail­able in six fra­grances (Pome­gran­ate, Jas­mine Plum, Cle­men­tine, Laven­der, Ocean and Lemon Ver­bena). You can pick them up at Wil­ford & Lee in Fort My­ers (239-481-3711, wil­for­dan­dlee.com).
