The Discovery Channel is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Shark Week, so we couldn’t pass up the chance to share our favorite seaworthy beauty products! While we subscribe to the thinking that the ocean is merely for gazing and not for frolicking (mainly because of said sharks), we are looking forward to dipping a well-manicured toe into Shark Week.
Speaking of manicures, In the Mood Color Changing Polish in Guilty is about the coolest thing ever. This unique nail polish changes from a light shimmery violet to a dark, mysterious ocean blue with a change of temperature. Dip your nails in hot or cold water to see the effect instantly. Don’t believe us, check out the video below and see for yourself! Get In the Mood polish in a variety of groovy color combos for $8 at themoodpolish.com.
Want that sun-dried, wind-blown look of being on the beach all day? Bumble and bumble Surf Spray gives you all that minus the sand in your face. Pair it with Color Minded UV Protective Styling Balm to protect your colored tresses against harmful UV rays. You can pick up Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and Color Minded UV Protective Styling Balm locally at select salons (we get it at Primp and Blow in Scottsdale) or at bumbleandbumble.com, where you can also pick a few pointers on how to use it, $24 – $28.
Speaking of sexy, beach bomb hair, Extreme Therapy Surf Cream is another hair styling balm that you’ll find in our beauty arsenal. Created by local hair genius, Salvador Calvano, this non-waxy paste allows you to be more precise in your application. Stop in the Salvador Calvano Hair salon to get it (call first!) or get it at hairpeace.com for $25. More here.
Named by Total Beauty as the best waterproof mascara, Lancôme’s Definicils Waterproof Mascara gives your lashes the full lushness you expect from a mascara with the added benefit of the all day staying power. With this mascara, you don’t have to worry about scaring the sea creatures with the black streaks. Available at your local Lancôme department store counter or lancome-usa.com, $26.
