7 Beauty Products with Hawaiian Appeal
We're always dreaming of our next tropical getaway, and it looks like this season the beauty industry has taken note. The biggest brands out there all seem to be inspired by one place for their latest collections: Hawaii. And who can blame them? For starters, the Hawaiian islands are home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, an ideal jumping off point for unique color creations. Flourishing flora and fauna make for perfect fragrance notes, and traditional fruits contain antioxidant-rich hydrating ingredients fit for nursing parched winter skin back to health.
Here, a roundup of Hawaii-inspired products that you'll want to say "aloha" to, stat!
