How to Smell Like a Beach Vacation

Hello everyone! I hope you guys are staying warm in this crazy Dallas weather, or just staying safe wherever you are at the moment. Today I wanted to talk about some of my favorite products I use to stay smelling like a beach vacation 24/7 (even in a nine degree snow storm). Yes, I had a Bath and Body Works phase in middle school, but I promise, I have come a long way in my fragrance game. Over the past few years, I have gone through plenty of trials and errors to find the perfect mixture of products, and now, I’m going to share all of my best kept secrets with y’all! I hope you enjoy it.

First off, my holy grail perfume, Replica’s Beach Walk Fragrance. This is literally the key to smelling like a five star beach resort. I’ve worn this fragrance for the past three years, and I still enjoy it every time I put it on. I love to try new fragrances periodically, but this one is just too good to put down. I really do think I’ll wear this until the day I die. Yes, I’m dramatic about this fragrance, but for good reason. Just try it.

Next on the list is a body lotion on many top product lists: Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. If you have not tried this product already, you need to run to the nearest Sephora immediately. This cream doesn’t only keep my skin hydrated through Summer and Winter months alike; it smells absolutely insane. Again, think salty beach air, coconut milk, and sweet honey. Can you tell I have a type when it comes to fragrance?

Going hand in hand with the last product is Sol de Janeiro’s Body Wash. If you enjoy Sol de Janeiro’s classic bum bum scent, you’ll undoubtedly love this product. Like they say, you can't have too much of a good thing...right?

Lastly, I want to show you a new fragrance I fell in love with after an employee at Sephora recommended it to me: Skylar’s Salt Air Fragrance. I really appreciate that this fragrance is a part of Sephora’s “clean fragrance” category, meaning that it is formulated without a list of over 50 harmful ingredients including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and more. This scent is definitely more fresh than the Replica one, which is what I love about it. It is perfect for a casual day running errands or hanging around the pool.
