This has certified organic sea buckthorn oil for nourishing health and beauty support, plus 190 bioactive nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

5. Grace’s Summer fragrance tip for the “Guys” is perfect for a date night out: Drakkar Noir by Guy LaRoche is celebrating 40 years this year. It’s a timeless fragrance that has really stood as a cultural touchstone of masculinity with fresh notes of lemon, mandarin and orange that are great for summer. It’s textured with spices, coriander and juniper. Still considered modern today, Drakkar Noir has a real sensual, powerful, masculine allure that this fragrance is known for. And unlike in 1982, when this first launched and you had to go in store to get it, today you can get it on Amazon.com.
