Lina M.'s natural, handmade soaps, soaks, salts, scrubs, and creams are whipped up weekly in small batches to ensure that skin-parched patrons receive the freshest products possible. Products tickle the nose's tongue's taste buds with light aromatics such as Oasis, a clean, summery fragrance, or signature scent Lina, a feminine bouquet of wisteria and lilac. The healthful bath brigade includes a 4-ounce honey and crème bath and facial bar made with goat's milk, oatmeal, natural raw honey, shea butter, and olive and aloe vera oil ($7) to moisturize a whole soul-sack from top to toe, whereas 1-ounce Shea to Go travel tins provide easy access to concentrated dollops of creamy African shea butter for scratchy, dry patches. Like a spork, the mineral bubble bath salt ($7) combines the form and function of two essential wares—the skin-softening salt soak and the frothy, prophetic nature of a cauldron's worth of bubble bath. With all items at $7.98 or less, Lina M.'s brand of wholesome luxury is as affordable as it is indulgent.

He and his staff of friendly, Automotive Service Excellence–certified technicians know what it takes to get your steel steed purring again. After they pour in a fresh batch of delicious oil, the staff will check your vehicle's 17 most commonly vulnerable pressure points, not only explaining your car's needs and motivations, but also anticipating potential problems that could occur down the road. Finally, they'll cap everything with a tire rotation so your rubber donuts wear evenly, heading off dangerous blowouts and embarrassingly saggy tires that make your car look older than it actually is.
