DevaCurl's product cleanses without water, functioning like a dry shampoo. Just spray it on your roots and gently work into your hair. The peppermint extract soaks up oil and provides a cooling sensation, making hair feel clean in a minute flat—how's that for not washing your hair? ($20;

You've never wanted to smell like a foot this much since Mean Girls aired in 2004. The Bliss Foot Patrol cream smells like a candy cane, but the heavy-hitting ingredients aren't just for show, er, smell. Salicylic acid breaks down dead skin cells, aloe leaf softens the skin, and the peppermint leaves feet feeling refreshed. This cream will be a must-have for post-long runs or whenever your toes need some TLC. ($18;

Sephora Collection Cooling Mint Blotting Papers

You'll never go back to plain ol' blotting papers after trying these babies. The fibers soak up excess oil from the skin, while the mint cools and refreshes—an added perk for a mid-day touch-up. ($8;


Earth's Nectar Mint Leaves Scalp Oil

Peppermint gives you that tingly sensation because it's a stimulant. When applied to the hair at the roots, à la this scalp oil, the peppermint encourages blood circulation to the hair follicles and stimulates growth. The jojoba and sweet almond oil seal in moisture and strengthen damaged strands—a lifesaver when winter's harsh weather starts to wreck havoc on your tresses. ($18.50;


Whipped Peppermint Bark Body Butter

This peppermint bark body butter from Fit and Fab Living feels luxurious, but it's simple to DIY. The secret comes from whipping shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter into a fluffy consistency. The peppermint oil creates a heavenly scent and will be oh-so-soothing on dry, winter skin. Make a big batch and slather this on all winter long—your skin will thank you.

Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser

All photos

Microbeads in this cleanser gently slough away dry, dead skin cells. Then the peppermint extract in the gel calms inflammation, while pomegranate extract gives a dose of antioxidants. Peppermint is especially effective in the treatment of acne because the menthol diminishes oil production and reduces inflammation in the skin. ($30;

Tiger Balm Muscle Rub

9 of 10

All photos

Much like spicy foods elicit a heating sensation, peppermint forces cold-receptors to react, hence the cooling sensation. Tiger Balm uses menthol, a compound found in peppermint oil, in their muscle rub. It works by causing the muscles to cool down and then warm up, thus temporarily relieving pain. Try this post-gym (like after our Get-Firm-Fast Total-Body Workout) and you'll understand why their slogan is "Get me my Tiger Balm!" ($7.45;
