I could NOT live without Kate Somerville's EXFOLIATE; there is no exfoliant on the market like it. We always say twice a week to "Shed the Dead" because your skin will look smoother, clearer & brighter. Summer is SO important to make sure to dissolve the build-up, as exposure to the sun accelerates the accumulation of dead skin.
Just like your face should be exfoliated, your lips should too! I keep my lovely little pot of SARA HAPP LIP SCRUB right by my toothbrush and use it at least every other day (sometimes more!). It eliminates dry, flaky skin on your lips, and leaves them smooth & hydrated. While I love all the flavors, the new, limited-edition "Fresh Tropical Coconut" is a true taste of paradise.
Since we are talking exfoliation, we can't forget about our bodies! All that beaching is sure to leave behind a little dryness, especially in areas like our elbows, backs of arms, knees, thighs and feet! All of the BAJAZEN BODY SCRUBS buff away rough surface skin, as it deeply restores & protects your healthy glow.
LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO - A lifesaver any time of the year. When there is no time for your hair to "go the distance", reach for this bottle of magic!
ST. TROPEZ SELF-TANNING products - sprays, lotions, mists, mousses, face, body, instant color, temporary color, and gradual color - even a self-tanner that you use in the SHOWER! They are undeniably the leader in the "self-tanning" world!
Ready, Steady, GLOW! This TONIC by REN is just wonderful! It is full of the AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids), but NO alcohol or drying agents. It gives such a refreshing final step to cleansing your skin, helps brighten your skin tone, and gently sweeps away light surface build-up.
PETER THOMAS ROTH NAKED SPF - We are so excited to announce this NEW line to MF! Its an all-mineral lightweight lotion with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide for broad spectrum SPF 45 protection. Vitamins A, C and E and Safflower Extract help nourish skin's appearance while providing antioxidant benefits.
STATE & MANOR DAVIE REVERSIBLE TEE - Throw on a tee with jeans after a long day at the beach. The softest fabric ever! Major bonus: you can wear it either v-neck or scoop-neck.
WHITE & BLACK SAND FRAGRANCES & BODY CREAM from FINN & CO. - Infused with the scents of the beach, these products are offered in roll-on perfume and body creme!
BARE MINERALS INVISIBLE BRONZING POWDER - Fake the GLOW with this ultra-fine baked bronzer that captures the natural warmth of a healthy looking sun-kissed glow.
FRESH SUGAR LIP TREATMENT SPF 15 & Sport Stick - An ultra-nourishing tinted lip treatment that moisturizes, protects, and smoothes the lips while leaving a slight tint. Available in many shades.
MERSEA & CO. POOL WRAP - Add instant style and lightweight coverage over your swimsuit, and enjoy the perfect matching carry-all for sunscreen, shades and a towel.
