Beach, Please

Wouldn’t it be nice to spend the summer frolicking in the ocean’s waves? Well, even if you can’t treat yourself to some vitamin sea, at least now you can look the part. Joico’s quick-drying and hydrating Beach Shake spray lets you score tousled waves and a satiny finish for hair that looks (and smells!) like you’ve indulged in an island escape, even if you spend all season living that city or cottage life.

Lava-va-voom

Mineral-rich volcanic water is the star ingredient in V Element, the new volume-boosting, length-enhancing and lash-intensifying mascara from Montreal-based beauty company Lise Watier. Naturally occurring elements including calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper work to revitalize and protect your lashes, while the deep-black shade adds eye-catching definition.

Shaving Grace

Bare leg season has arrived, and that means no more letting weeks (or, um, months) lapse between shaves. Thanks to its weighty, metal-handle design and five super-thin blades, Gillette’s new Venus Platinum Extra Smooth razor requires less pressure and glides easily along your limbs for a friction-free shave. It also comes with two blade refills to ensure your legs stay as smooth as can be all summer long.
