Later, Whitney made an appearance at the W South Beach — where the temperature and humidity was off the charts — for a Skintimate-sponsored afterparty that also feted Hoffman's collaboration with the brand. And on the subject of beating the heat, Whitney had a few anecdotes of her own to share. During the summertime, Whitney can't live without her Fresh High Noon bronzer, herbal mist spray by Finer Skin Institute, and CoverGirl lipstick. When it comes to those famous strands of hers, Whitney, who recently colored her hair a strawberry blond, admits she's open to changes. She said, "I'm loving my color now as it gets blonder from the sun, Who knows what I will do next. Suggestions?"
Designer Mara Hoffman is known for her brightly hued, global-chic swimwear collections, and now she has channeled that creative spirit into a whole new venture. In collaboration with Skintimate, Mara has designed limited-edition packaging for the brand's Signature Scents shave gel line. The limited-edition cans are available until September, and are inspired by fantasy, nature, and world travel. (It kind of takes the chore out of shaving, no?) See all four of Mara's colorful designs up close now.
These shaving creams worked for my dad, and they still work for me. When I began shaving in my early teens, I used these with a single blade razor. Nowadays, I use a four-blade razor for sensitive skin, and these creams work even better without breaking the bank. I’m a firm believer in splurging in some areas and saving in others, and these drugstore brands have never let me down. Do you have a brand preference when it comes to shaving creams?
Edge Advanced Shaving Gel For Sensitive Skin ($3.23) OK, so this isn't the most feminine product that I own, but I've been using this gel-to-cream formula for ages and I love the texture and the masculine scent. Also, this slightly new and improved formula contains aloe to help soothe even the most sensitive skin.
Barbasol Shaving Cream ($2.49) is the one, the original, the very first shaving cream I ever used. Not only did I love using this thick and creamy formula on my legs, but while at Summer camp, I'd write my bunk number on the lawn outside of the mess hall. I was a happy camper.
