Don't get us wrong, we love a good makeover. But we'd love them even better if they resulted in luxe, skin-nourishing products, like Ola's newly revamped bath and body line.

Now, this is a makeover. Sure, there are the obvious cosmetic changes like slimmer, light packaging and a cool, new logo with the Hawaiian island chain. But Ola also added two new products to the lineup. A mineral-rich body mist, made with Kona deep sea water in lush, tropical scents like maile and passion fruit, gives hair, skin and linens a refreshing pick-me-up (seriously, we can't stop spritzing this everywhere).

Then there are the bath rituals with naturally farmed Molokai sea salt. A soak in this moisturizing blend of amino acids, coconut milk and plant extracts will leave you feeling renewed, kinda like you just got a makeover yourself.

We also like the change in formulations: thicker lotions and more potent creams infused with additional organic, wildcrafted or locally sourced ingredients like noni, coconut, seaweed and bamboo.

Because (insert Full House music here) when it comes to makeovers, it's what's on the inside that counts.
