How to Smell Summertime Ready

Perhaps nothing encapsulates summer more than the scent of coconuts and tropical fruits lingering in the air. And good news: Finding the perfect products to emulate those summertime aromas is easier than you think! Let’s break down our favorite products that’ll have you smelling beach-ready in no time.

Summertime Body Washes

Staying clean is the easiest way to smell good, as it sets the foundational layer for all of your other scents to build on. You could keep it simple with unscented soap, but why go for that when you have formulas with coconut, pineapple, and vanilla at your disposal?

Summertime Lotions

The summer sun can dry out skin fast, stripping you of moisture and that glow that makes you look dewy and healthy. Finding a lotion that nourishes the skin is one thing, but finding one that smells as good as it feels is a whole new ballgame. Look for formulas with coconut, which is known for its enriching, hydrating properties.

Summertime Shimmer Oil

Turn heads with the help of a scented shimmer oil that will illuminate your body and radiate gorgeous aromas from your skin. The best part about these shimmers is you can go as glowy or subtle as you’d like: Use multiple layers to build coverage or simply highlight your collarbones for a flirty feel.
