Three Quick Refreshers to Get You Through a Long, Dry Summer


We’re in the throes of yet another scorching summer, which of course means the only thing taking more of a beating than your vehicle’s interior is your skin. Don’t fret: We’ve unearthed three products from America’s oldest apothecary, C.O. Bigelow, that are guaranteed to restore your chill.

Mentha Lip Shine

This mint-infused balm is better than a make-out sesh with the Doublemint twins. Not only does it seal and protect lips from dry desert air; it adds a hint of shine and freshens your breath with 100 percent natural peppermint and field mint oils. $7.50.

Lime & Coriander Body Lotion

Light in both weight and scent, this supremely silky lotion will become this summer’s après-sun favorite. Loaded with oils of olive and borage as well as soothing aloe vera, your thirsty summer skin will drink it right up. $14.

Lemon Sugar Body Scrub

This gentle, yet effective body scrub buffs away old skin to reveal the youthful, glowing layer underneath. The invigorating scent of lemon extract provides a nice pick-me-up for the soul, while the mind can rest easy knowing this is one scrub that’s free of those nasty (and decidedly not earth-friendly) plastic micro-beads. $19.50.
