Sunglasses At Night—And In The Shower-------
This past summer, we were pleasantly surprised by Hearts & Stars, coiffing star Jason Harsin’s Hawaiian hair import that made its way all the way over to our desk on the East Coast and promptly wowed us with its sulfate- and paraben-free cleansing and conditioning capabilities. Using a special blend of eucalyptus, tea tree, and sage extracts to impart a squeaky clean, but never drying, feel to the scalp, the adorable, sunglasses-emblazoned bottles also pack a keratin and hemp-oil punch, which swathed our sun- and salt-water-ravaged hair with moisture. Originally formulated for his wave-riding clientele, Harsin still had beach bums on the brain again when he devised his latest product development: a naturally derived Bath and Body Gel. Launching today, which some would argue is the unofficial start of the resort season, the soothing wash is similarly devoid of parabens and sulfates, bolstered instead by vitamins C and E, aloe vera, jojoba oil, and protein to balance skin tone, hydrate parched limbs, and protect and repair environmental damage. Not going anywhere tropical over the next few months? Not to worry. The logo’s bright green, heart-shaped shades add a hint of “beach holiday” to even the most landlocked of showers.
