The next best thing to a vacation? Beauty products that are reminiscent of time spent relaxing in exotic and tropical locations. Just a whiff will whisk you away even when you’re landlocked.
Rum Body Lotion, MALIN + GOETZ ($34). malinandgoetz.com
If relaxing on a beach with a mojito in hand just isn’t in the cards for you this summer, this lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing body lotion with an alluring rum scent will transport you somewhere sunny every time you slather it on.
Juicy Shaker Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil, Lancôme ($22). Saks Fifth Avenue, North Star Mall, San Antonio, 210-341-4111
Comparable to a tropical cocktail, Lancôme’s Juicy Shakers for lips are appropriately shaped and flavored with shades like "Freedom of Peach" and "Banana Split." They also add the perfect pop of high-shine color to any ensemble.
Coconut Milky Mist, Too Cool for School ($14). Sephora, Arboretum Market, 512-342-8484
Douse yourself in coconuts every time you spritz this refreshing face mist. It's packed with essential vitamins and minerals naturally derived from coconut water to prevent moisture loss and infuse the skin with hydration.
Dry Texturizing Spray, Oribe ($46). Neiman Marcus, The Domain, 512-719-1200
A cult classic for a reason, this texturizing spray not only does wonders for second-day hair, but it also features the brand’s addictive signature Cote d’Azur scent that instantly takes you to the French Riviera.
Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, Tom Ford ($98). Sephora, Arboretum Market, 512-342-8484
This dry body oil not only gives your skin an enviable glow like you’ve been tanning on a white sandy beach for weeks on end, but it also imparts that aroma with notes of white florals, amber, and sandalwood—so you can convince yourself that you actually did.
Whipped Argan Face Oil Butter, Josie Maran ($40). josiemarancosmetics.com
The luxe texture and alluring smell of this whipped face butter makes hydrating your complexion relaxing and enjoyable. Rich in watermelon seed oil and fresh cucumber extract, it’s not only effective but it's also intoxicating.
Beach Eau de Parfum, Bobbi Brown ($76). Nordstrom, Barton Creek Sq., 512-691-3500
Its name says it all. If you want to smell like everyone’s favorite summer destination, this fragrance will wrap your body in the faint scent of sand jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin.
