ARIES loves discovering a new way to deal with a detested old problem: unsightly pit stains. She'll adore Deo-Go, an armpit stain remover that brings new life to clothes once thought destined for the toss pile. She'll love how white clothes lose their yellow armpit highlights, and how deodorant and antiperspirant marks seem to disappear into the ether. Almond scented. Learn more at www.getdeogo.com.

TAURUS will appreciate the speed and simplicity of new Sephora Supreme Cleansing Foam all-in-one cleanser. The opthalmologically-tested, paraben-free formula is ready when you are, moving briskly and efficiently to thoroughly simplify your skincare routine.

GEMINI is not the only one with great duality, but she'll most definitely dig into Sephora Smart Dual Action Exfoliator with great enthusiasm. Two sides and textures make this paraben-free formula ideal for combination skin: the white side is a gentle gel scrub for the face, while the green deep cleansing cream is designed for the T-zone, and helps eliminate dead skin cells, impurities, and excess sebum. Available at Sephora, and online at www.sephora.com, or call 1.877.SEPHORA.

If the thought of tackling her spring cleaning stresses her out too much, CANCER can keep it positive with Be Happy Juice an elixir (okay, it's a supplement) that claims to help reduce tension and promote an overall feeling of well-being. Loaded with amino acids and antioxidants, like chocomine and L-theanine, a one-dose, two-ounce serving of chocolate-cherry flavored Be Happy may help to create a sense of calmness and rejuvenation, without causing drowsiness. Worth investigating before that next big meeting, interview, presentation, rehearsal, or binge-Spring-cleanup (yes, dear Crab - it IS okay to part with those birthday cards you've collected for the past twenty years).

Leave it to secretive SCORPIO to be the one wearing the invisible gloves. She's finally discovered a fantastic way to heal and protect dry, winter-thwarted hands: Gloves In a Bottle. Applied after your regular lotion is absorbed, Gloves In a Bottle forms an invisible barrier on hands, protecting skin from drying irritants for up to four hours (it comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells). Left to their own devices (i.e., healing processes), the sealed-in moisture helps skin heal itself. Greaseless, fragrance-free, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic..Visit http://www.glovesinabottle.com for more information.
