STRAIGHT FROM THE ISLANDS: INTRODUCING BOTICARIO DE HAVANA BY ARCHIPELAGO

Inspired by the natural skincare remedies of the “boticarias” – or apothecaries – that dotted the side streets of 1940’s Havana, Archipelago Botanicals recreated the natural formulations used to promote beautiful, hydrated skin in its newest collection of amazing bath & body products: Boticario de Havana.

Boticario de Havana utilizes natural ingredients straight from the islands – such as coffee bean, tobacco flower and fruit extracts – known to be rich in alpha hydroxyl acids, antioxidants and other agents that actively promote healthy skin. Pineapple extract removes damaged cells, promotes skin elasticity; orange oil is rich in Vitamin E, contains natural antioxidants that inhibit the progression of age-causing free radicals and is soothing to dry skin; sugar is a natural exfoliator and rich in AHA’s which minimize red or blotchy skin; and the caffeine in coffee bean is known to minimize redness and puffiness.

The collection’s fragrance is based on Archipelago’s runaway bestselling home fragrance blend of Bergamot, Tobacco Leaf and Ylang Ylang, however Boticario de Havana features a more concentrated Bergamot component for a clean, citrusy fragrance which is perfect for personal care products and appeals to men and women alike. With its “green” packaging (boxes use recycled materials that fold together, using no glue) – this collection is both good for the planet and good for the skin. Furthermore the lotions, crèmes and balms are PARABEN FREE.

Bath Oil (SRP: $24.00) – Premium blend of orange oil, coffee oil and olive oil for a highly moisturizing soak.

Shave Crème (SRP: $22.00) – Jojoba esters and natural extracts specially blended for a smooth shave. Crème contains orange oil, wheat protein, coffee & pineapple extracts and Vitamin E – ingredients rich in alpha hydroxy acids known to reduce the appearance of razor burn.

Top Seven Common Beauty Mistakes to Avoid this Summer

Makeup Artist Provides Top Seven Common Beauty Mistakes to Avoid this Summer

June is finally here, and that means the first day of summer is right around the corner. Whether you plan to spend the hot summer months at work or at the beach, there are essential beauty tips every woman should keep in mind to achieve the perfect look this summer.

Blend, Blend and Blend
Whether your applying concealer, lip liner or blush, be sure to blend colors and makeup to create a natural summer look. Defined lines and mismatched colors can lead to a disastrous look for the summer. When applying concealer around your eyes, be sure to blend. Also, remember to switch to a darker shade if you have been out in the sun.

Stay in Line
When applying lip liner or eyeliner, stay in line. Cat eyes are great, but tone down the look for the summer. When applying lipstick, trace your lip line and avoid an unnatural look. Same goes for your eyes. If you plan to extend your line beyond your eyes, keep it natural.

Mind Your Neck
Check your neck. This is a common mistake year-round, but needs particular attention during the summertime. Since you are out in the sun, your neck may not match that fabulous natural tan. Dab some bronze powder on your neck, making sure you match!

Out with the Old, In with the New
As you update your wardrobe with the hottest summer gear, the same should go for your makeup. Make sure to rid your makeup bag of any old makeup. Toss any products that have changed color, consistency or have a bad odor—since makeup is always in contact with germ-prone areas like your eyes, mouth and fingers.

Avoid Dark Lips
Dark lip shades can look aging. To keep in line with this summer’s makeup trend—go natural. Grab your favorite gloss to go and apply throughout the day, brightening your face and complimenting your natural summer glow.

Go Waterproof!
The hot summer weather doesn’t necessarily have to affect your summer makeup application. Switch to waterproof makeup for the summertime. Whether off to the beach or a day at the office, avoid smudged black makeup under your eyes.

How Tan is Too Tan?
A little summer glow can really brighten your face, but don’t overdo it. Go natural this summer. When stepping out into the sun, be sure to protect your skin. Opt for a lotion that contains SPF 15 and higher to avoid burning your face, which may lead to peeling. Don’t forget to switch your concealer to match your new darker shade. And, be sure to steer clear of products that give you an orange tone.
