Beauty Products That Play With Your Senses
There are so many beauty products on the market today that it can be hard to choose which one is best. But a recent surge in products that appeal to our senses has made it a bit easier to decide.
Yes, we're talking about those senses — sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. Once we experienced these unique products, including a warming foot scrub, a scented nail polish and a lipstick that changes color to match our natural hue, we were completely sold.
Touch: Freeman Bare Foot Peppermint & Plum Self-Warming Foot Scrub
Winter is coming, so it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to warm up, and why not start with your beauty regimen? Freeman’s Bare Foot Self-Warming Foot Scrub is a seamless way to soften your feet while warming up. It contains zeolites, which are minerals that produce a warming sensation all while soothing the skin.
Touch: Sun Bum’s "Cool Down" Lotion
Another one of my favorite sense-activating beauty products is Sun Bum’s “Cool Down” Lotion. It’s a cooling lotion I use when I’m windburnt after skiing, or when I just have dry skin. It provides a deep hydration to softly rebuild the skin’s natural moisture level.
Smell: Sephora by O.P.I. Scentsational Six Fruit-Scented Nail Lacquers
These are a real treat for your senses. The set of vivacious nail lacquers is infused with sweet scents like mango, blueberry and watermelon. They'll keep your nails smelling fragrant all day long.
Smell: Brazilian Blowout’s Volume Collection
Brazilian Blowout’s new Volume Collection will leave your senses in a frenzy. Their line of Volume products contains Volume Shampoo, Volume Conditioner, Instant Volume Thermal Root Lift and Instant Volume Body Boost Powder — all of which are packed with a punch of citrus to awaken your senses.
Taste: Urban Decay’s Sparkling Lickable Body Powder
Urban Decay's Lickable Body Powders will make you look, smell and taste divine! Their marshmallow and honey-flavored powders give your skin a lustrous shimmer and a lovely aroma, and (this is the best part) you’ll taste like honey, too. Simply dust over your collarbones or shoulders and you’ll look glowing and kissable.
Taste: Stila’s Lip Glaze
Flavored lip balms have been all the rage since we were young, but many beauty companies have taken it to the next level with bacon, pickle and cocktail flavored lip-glosses. That’s right, those flavors are all out there, but the verdict is in: We'd rather have our lips taste sweet like a sugarplum with Stila’s Lip Glaze!
Hearing: Sabon’s Bath Balls
These bath balls make bath time fun for adults. Once these little gems hit the water, they sizzle and hiss until they’re dissolved. They’re also created from Dead Sea salts, and add an explosion of minerals, rose petals and floral essences to your bath while also nourishing and soothing your skin with dreamy scents like rose and honey-peach.
Sight: Givenchy’s Le Rose Magic Lipstick
It’s not always easy finding the perfect shade of lipstick for your lips; I know I’ve spent hours at Sephora trying out different shades. But with Givenchy’s Le Rose Magic Lipstick, you can take the guesswork out of the equation. Once it's applied, this lipstick turns to the ideal shade of pink for your skin tone. The ingredients in the lipstick work with the pH of your pout, creating the perfect hue for you.
Sight: “In the Mood” Color Changing Nail Polish
You can also stimulate your sense of sight with “In the Mood” Color Changing Nail Polish — and you’ll never get bored with your nail color! These pretty polishes change color based on your body temperature and your mood. Which one are you? Flirty, curious or naughty?
