The Beauty Beat: 4/1-4/7

Samples, lavender and beach bodies abound this week.

This week, check in for free samples from L’Oreal Paris, lavender face and body treatments at The Sports Club / LA and beach bodies in the making at Crunch.

Need some sunscreen? The answer is yes, it’s always yes. This weekend, look for the L’Oreal Paris street team. They’ll be handing out Sublime Sun Lotion SPF 30 and $1-off coupons. The new line isn’t sticky, rubs in and will keep you safe from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Find these samples where you’ll find the team decked out in easy-to-spot “Sublime Sun” rompers and hats. They’ll be taking it to the streets of SoBe from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8. GET IT: For more info about Sublime Sun, log on to

SPA: In addition to slathering on that sunscreen, consider giving your skin a boost. The Sports Club/ LA’s latest offerings get skin glowing. The Lavender Body Polish ($99 for 50 minutes) uses geranium grape seed body scrub to renew skin’s luster, while lavender moisturizer hydrates. The Lavender Facial (also $99 for 50 minutes) soothes away everyday skin stressors with microderm cream, a facial massage, a mineral-rich mask and two serums packed with more healthy stuff for your skin than anything you’ll find in your medicine cabinet. Afterward, you’ll feel free to show off the skin you’re in. GET IT: The Sports Club / LA, The Sports Club/LA at The Four Seasons Hotel and Tower, 1441 Brickell Ave., Miami; 305.533.1199.

GYM: Tabloid covers of the best and worst beach bodies are never kind. The paparazzi may not be following you around documenting your physique in a two-piece, but we know you still want to look and feel your best. Crunch’s new Beach Body class fits you to a T with the secrets to getting toned and buff through sculpting. Each week, you’ll work toward a ripped bikini bod. Plus, members who attend on a regular basis will be entered to win an all-expense paid vacation for two. GET IT: Find the nearest Crunch locale here.
