Alba Organics Aloe Vanilla Mineral Sunscreen SPF 18

SMART already loves Alba sun protection products (its organic lavender sunscreen smells great, goes on smooth and wards off bugs), so we were excited to try this new mineral sunscreen formula. It contains titanium dioxide, a broad spectrum UVA & UVB reflective barrier. Natural emollients and botanical antioxidants help to nourish and protect, too. And it smells yummy, which is always a plus.

Kiehl’s Yerba Mate Tea Skincare Neiman Marcus $20.50-$35

You already know the benefits of drinking it, but did you know it’s good for your skin, too? Yerba maté, the South American herb traditionally consumed as a tea, is a mild stimulant, with benefits similar to those found in green tea. Kiehl’s has introduced the Yerba Maté Tea Collection, which includes a cleanser, toner and face lotion. All are natural and gentle, removing residue and oil without drying the skin. It’s perfect for hot summer days when you want to cleanse and refresh your face with lighter-weight products. Your skin will be brighter and glowing, clearer and radiant.



Let the countdown begin. As soon as you know it, November will be here and Pearlridge will have a Sephora. Just like the Sephora at Ala Moana Center you already know and love, the Pearlridge Sephora will carry all your favorite skin-care, makeup, fragrance and hair-care brands like Bliss, Fresh, Caudalie, Bare Escentuals, Jonathan Hair, Urban Decay, Becca, Nars and so many more! It would be impossible to name them all. Sephora is truly the one-stop shop for everything beauty. SMART is so excited about Sephora opening at Pearlridge! As November gets closer, stay tuned for more details on the grand opening ...
