If you want to put a little spring in your step before your morning Starbucks bold brew, stash these minty-fresh beauty products in your bathroom. They all offer up a cooling/tingling sensation that is totally invigorating, super refreshing and eye opening. I can’t make it through some mornings without them.
Pureology Hydrate Conditioner, $29.99
Not only is this a color-protecting, vegan and sulfate-free conditioner, but it also makes your entire scalp tingle if you let it sit on your strands for a couple of minutes. It’s like a mini spa treatment for your head. After using it, your hair will be thoroughly moisturized and easy to comb. I also dig the new packaging, which helps you squeeze every last drop out of the bottle.
Yes, an $18 soap, but this isn’t any ordinary soap. It’s a gigantic bar o’ soap that will last for a long, long time. Just keep your toes out of the way if you’re prone to dropping the soap in the shower — ouch! The scent is fresh and minty and your body will be left with a tingly feeling that will practically melt stress away. It’s also infused with jojoba beads to exfoliate skin as you cleanse.
If you have sore feet or calves after a night of dancing or standing in stilettos, this should be your post-shower go-to. Slather on the light lotion-y serum and your aches will get instant relief. Even better, the product leaves behind a very subtle sparkle that will help your legs look their best. It’s packed with hard-working ingredients like essential plant oils, lavandin (anti-inflammatory and circulation-boosting), cypress (vasoconstricting), cistus ladaniferus (fatigue diminishing), menthol, aloe vera and more. Plus, it excludes parabens, petroleum, phthalates, colourants and synthetic fragrances.
One warning: After using these products you may become addicted to the tingle. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
