Test drive: Keep your cool with new products

Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep, $24, aveda.com for area locations


Summer isn’t the time to slack off with your beauty regimen. A few new products out there can help you tackle fine hair, the heat and dry skin.

  • Aveda’s Pure Abundance System: If your hair falls flat, this line of shampoo, conditioner, style prep, potion and hair spray might give you the texture and thickening boost you’re after (no teasing involved). Aromas of jasmine, peppermint, palmarosa and ylang ylang play to the senses. Products are $16-$48; visit aveda.com for area salon locations.

  • L’Occitane’s Sorbet Verbena: When you need more than a cold drink, put the squeeze on this collection that features hints of lime and grapefruit. Warning: body ice gel, cooling lip gloss and Eau de Toilette ($12-$50) just might make you crave your bedtime ritual. Find it at L’Occitane, 511 Nichols Road, Plaza, 816.410.3826, usa.loccitane.com.

  • Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20: If you’ve tried this weightless wonder for your face, you might already be hooked. Now the body enhancer protects you from the sun while promising to hydrate, enhance and tone — in sheer, glow or bronze. Find it for $34 at Sephora stores and online at miracleskintransformer.com, sephora.com, and nordstrom.com.
