The Body Shop Peppermint Purifying Foot Mask
$17 The Body Shop

It’s summertime. It’s hot. It’s muggy. And being on your feet all day isn’t fun. In fact, your feet are tired and, quite frankly, a little busted up. It’s time for some foot pampering. Treat your feet right. The Body Shop’s Peppermint Purifying Foot Mask is the perfect pampering solution—it’s a clay-based wash-off mask that deep-cleanses and soothes tired and sore footsies. The peppermint oil creates coolness, making feet instantly feel refreshed and minty! The mask also moisturizes and protects the skin, and the clay-based formula helps to cleanse and balance the skin. It’s like a foot spa in a tube.

CHANEL Robertson Boulevard Nail Color Collection

Kitson, Lisa Kline, The Ivy, Maxfield Bleu, the newest west coast outpost of Intermix…Los Angeles’ Roberton Boulevard is home to some of the best shopping around, all in one super-fashionable block. Now, this West Hollywood style mecca welcomes CHANEL. The boutique opened in May, and to mark the occasion, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, Peter Phillips, has designed four limited-edition nail colors. The colors will be available at the Robertson boutique in July and are expected to sell out (think Vamp, Black Satin, Blue Satin, and so on). The set includes Melrose (bright hot pink), Rodeo Drive (opaque purple), L.A. Sunrise (primary yellow) and L.A. Sunset (a warm tangerine). For those of us not visiting L.A. anytime soon, visit Chanel’s website to sign up to be notified when the colors are available online in July.
