HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kathryn Wagner is back, and she's here to show us some great products to look and stay cool during this hot summer season.
Tatcha blotting papers are handmade in Japan out of abaca leaf, and don't contain fragrance, oil or powder. $12 for a pack of 30 papers. You can find them locally at Super Citizen Boutique http://www.honolulumagazine.com/Honolulu-Magazine/Guilty-Pleasures/April-2010/Newest-Honolulu-Store-is-Eco-Focused/ or online at http://www.tatcha.com/products/japanese-blotting-papers.
Benefit's Stay Don't Stray primer keeps undereye concealer from rubbing off ($24), while She-Laq Magical Makeup Sealer goes over eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick and lipliner ($30). You can find them at Sephora, Macy's or online at http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/gp/home.html.
La Prairie's Anti-Aging Concealer, with an SPF 20, comes in four shades ($70).
The Cellular Energizing Body Spray is formulated to exfoliate, hydrate and firm the skin ($115). Shop at Neiman Marcus. http://www.neimanmarcus.com.
Foot Petals are inserts that go in your shoes and help keep your feet cool and dry. Deuces Hawaii carries them. $18.95 for a three pack of ball of foot cushions; $35 for a three-pack of full insoles. http://www.mydeuces.com/
After swimming, just throw on a cool caftan, like this one from Splash Hawaii, instead of getting back in your clothes. In fact, it's made from the same material as swimsuits, and can be worn right in the water, so if you want to get it wet and let it gradually dry, it should keep you nice and cool. It's $26 at http://splashhawaii.com/.
