I heart all five of these bad boys!
1. Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray ($23)
Have you ever had coconut Lifesavers before? I don’t know if they still are, but they used to be in the Tropical fruit packs.
Dang, I sure loved those things…
I’d always eat the other flavors first and save the coconuts for last, and then devour them all one after another like Cookie Monster eats Chips Ahoys! until I reached a state of sugar-fueled ecstasy.
I haven’t had one in years, which makes me a little sad because I looked them up online today, and apparently the Tropical Lifesavers are going the way of the dinosaurs… (*tears*)
Oh, well. At least I’ll still have Ouidad’s new Wave Create Sea Spray. Stuff smells EXACTLY like coconut-flavored Tropical Lifesavers.
And it’s not just the scent I like. When I spray it on my wavy hair while it’s wet and let my hair air dry, I get perfectly tousled tresses, well-defined waves and lots of great volume — a little messy, but not too messy, which I like. None of that annoying crunchy business, either, you sometimes get with other beach wave sprays, blech! And my hair still looks pretty good on the second day.
The 6.4-ounce bottle sells for $23 at Ulta stores and ouidad.com.
2. Lollia At Last White Petals & Rice Flower Handcreme ($25 for a 4-ounce tube)
This has been my favorite hand cream for a while because of the majorly moisturizing shea butter formula and the powdery rice flower, mimosa and magnolia scent.
I love the refreshing fragrance, so I like that it lingers throughout the day, and because the cream absorbs quickly into my skin, my fingers don’t feel slimy or greasy…so I can keep typing away at Tabs’ memoirs without skipping a beat.
I keep the big, cheerful 4-ounce tube at my desk right where I’m bound to see it, and it can remind me to moisturize during the day.
It’s available now at Neiman Marcus and neimanmarcus.com.
There’s also a smaller 0.33-ounce tiny tube for $7.50.
