BEAUTY CRAVES: A Care Package for Luis Guzman

Must Try

As the actor takes on his next role in the Netflix series ‘Narcos,’ he deserves a little ‘me time’ during the long days shooting in the Colombian heat.

Beauty Craves is channeling Luis Guzman, who is currently in Colombia working on a new Netflix series “Narcos,” a serialized take on drug lord Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel.

I love the colorful characters he plays, like Maurice T.T. Rodriguez in “Boogie Nights.” Fandom’s got the best of me, so I’m shipping these products off to Luis, for surely he could use a little pretty during the long days producing the criminal biopic in the sultry Colombian heat.


This multi-tasking fragrance also repels bugs – take that Colombian Gigantor Moth! The fragrance-cum-insect repellent is made with essential oils with notes of silken vanilla, exotic orange, warm cedar wood, and nourishing Vitamin E.

Note to Luis: This functional fragrance will let you live an outdoor chic lifestyle while staying bug-free. If you run out on vacation, not to worry, i’s available in 80 Relais and Chateaux hotels and high end boutiques in Manhattan, St. Baths, Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Palm Beach, and more.


Badrick’s Lock Stock and Barrel Bar

The light fragrance of tobacco and vanilla. No film, just function and great ingredients like tea tree oil for anti-fungal and anti-bacterial benefits, and almond oil to soothe and protect the skin.

There’s also an abundance of Shea butter with vitamins A, D, and E. $12.95; – It’s a curious contraption, I agree, but give it a whirl. That primitive shower is now a full-service spa with the plastic bionic-like arm that attaches to your shower pipe and holds the small pod that releases drips of essential oils as you shower. Just like that, it’s aromatherapy that’s 100% organic too. Comes in six blends: breathe, passion, unwind, night, wisdom, and clear.


Lacoste L!ve

A men’s fragrance that is said to “heighten the senses, discover new perspectives and inspire creativity.”

Note to Luis: The alligator is back with a vengeance in this curious new scent. If the mood strikes, pop that collar up.

3.3 oz. is $69;
