Peppermint Beauty Goodies

When it's hot and humid outside, there's something about peppermint that is especially enticing. We love its cool, clean, and refreshing aroma. In this post, we'll share with you some minty products we love. We'll start with a shampoo we've been using as of late that's contagiously minty. It's Malin and Goetz Peppermint Shampoo ($20), which is a purifying and hydrating formula designed for all hair types. We love that it's especially suited for chemically and color treated hair like ours. This shampoo feels cool and tingly while lathering, and the peppermint aroma has a subtle "awakening" effect, which is nice for mornings we wake up and are still sleepy. The peppermint sensation is pleasant and not overwhelming or jarring, like some peppermint scented products. It's also fine for everyday use. Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Minty Lip Shine ($7) is another peppermint goodie we love. This feels wonderfully cool and smooth on our lips. The peppermint oil in this clear lip shine has a breath freshening effect that we also like. You'll want one of these for your purse as well as on your night stand. For a total body peppermint experience, C.O. Bigelow Mentha Body Vitamin Lotion ($14) is our choice. This lotion is lightweight and absorbs nicely. The peppermint smell is slightly sweet, which is pleasant - not cloying. If you don't like a tingly sensation on your skin, then skip this one. We find it refreshing. Finally, we are coveting Diptyque's Menthe Verte candle ($60). It's fresh fragrance is likened to the smell of mint leaf just rubbed between your fingers. We'd love to have this vivid green scent burning in our homes.
