AT ABSOLUTE ZERO IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

Gamma + Italia, an international leader in progressive new technologies for hair, has introduced the Absolute Zero Finishing Foil Shaver. The gentlest of shavers, Absolute Zero's design is especially lightweight at under five ounces, yet uniquely compact for greater precision. It consistently offers a closer, smoother, and more-even shave thanks to its independently floating foils and cutters, while also preventing skin irritation.

The Absolute Zero's unique gold and titanium foil gives a razor-edge close shave when used on stubble or can maintain a sharp or natural-looking beard. Its retractable trimmer is finely calibrated to be multifunctional--from reducing bulk hair to shaping and defining sideburns, necklines, and edges. It can be used corded or cordless, and features a micro-USB charger and a lithium-ion battery that charges to full strength in as little as 30 minutes for a continuous run-time of 120 minutes.

All Gamma + Italia products are handmade in Italy in an eco-clean and -conscious environment, built in a solar-paneled facility that reduces carbon emissions by more than 1,000 kilos a day. The Absolute Zero is available at www.gammaplusna.com and through salons and day spas.

THESE COOKIES ARE FULL OF JOIE DE VIVRE

Michel et Augustin was founded 15 years ago by Augustin Paluel-Marmont and Michel de Rovira, lifelong friends who left successful business careers in Paris to chase their dream of making French pastry. Having done that, they set out in 2015 to expand into the U.S.--and we Americans are the beneficiaries of their delicious line of indulgent cookies, with favors that include Milk Chocolate and Melty Caramel; Dark Chocolate with a Pinch of Sea Salt; Chocolate and Toasted Hazelnuts; and the latest entry, Triple Chocolate. Each cookie square is made using traditional French pastry techniques, high-quality ingredients, and jo/e de vivre (joy of living).

These tasty treats are available at select retailers and via Amazon. Moreover, they can be found in Delta's first-class cabin and are stocked in the offices of Google, Uber, Twitter, Face-book, and Bloomberg.
