Green Tea Hawaii's supplements expedite the process of losing weight. The company’s flagship item, a nutrient-rich powdered drink, dissolves into water and becomes a slenderizing cocktail of green-tea antioxidants, natural caffeine, and amino acids. Each serving of the fruit-flavored drink boosts metabolism and unlocks the ability to smell colors. Green coffee bean extract and Montagna coffee also deliver a natural dose of caffeine, and raspberry ketones increase the body's ability to burn fat via fruit compounds. Various other powdered drinks soak into the body and replenish vital nutrients.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
For more than 25 years, Diamond One's jewelers have decorated necklines, wrists, and fingers with jewelry crafted from precious metals and glittering gemstones.

They also repair fine jewelry, keeping family heirlooms in mint condition.
Jill Shiroma founded her distinctive libation shop because of her love of wines and spirits and her desire to fulfill the lifestyle needs of the modern generation. SWAM offers customers an eclectic variety of vino and spirits, with an emphasis on friendly and personal service. The shop's walls are lined with cherry shelves that are fully stocked with rare and unique drinkables, including hard-to-find wines and spirits, such as Hello Kitty wines (available in the pinot nero white and the pinot nero red)—a beverage brand far superior to Flintstones chewable champagne.
House of Aria clads ladies of all ages in chic, comfortable clothing and also arms them with handbags and accessories. Shoppers can purchase a black chiffon top that bares one shoulder, coyly showcasing a remarkable beauty mark shaped like Benjamin Franklin ($39). Garb torsos in the pink folds of an open-back dress ($39) and skip the struggle of matching tops to bottoms with a one-piece polka-dot romper ($42). A round rhinestone handbag hanger ($14) glimmers to prevent owners from leaving behind purses containing valuable items such as keys, wallets, and emergency stashes of ham. The boutique receives new duds every one–two weeks, and its fashionistas stock only a few items of each style to reduce incidences of mistaken cardigan identity.
