I’m generally into “clean” scents, but as summer get stickier, it’s becoming even more important. When it’s hot, I don’t want to smell too flowery or like a vanilla cake. I want my skin and hair to smell like skin and hair…but clean, freshly-washed skin and hair. I just want to smell like…what a girl should smell like!
These are my three favorite products that fit this description!
First…the Fekkai Glossing Sheer Shine Mist!
I use this to deal with the fact that my hair washing is grinding to a slow halt right now. Aside from the glossing factor, this spray just makes your hair smell so fresh and delicious. Even my mom, who hates everything scented, compliments me on how good it smells. I also love the cream version of it because it definitely refreshes my hair in between washings and smooths a multitude of sins.
Next, a recent Target impulse buy…Yes To Carrots Body Lotion.
Honestly, it’s great that it’s paraben-free and organic and all that shizz, but I really just bought it because of the smell. It’s unscented but its un-scent is awesome. My skin feels really good after using it for a couple weeks…but that might be because I remember to use it twice a day because I just love how great it smells!
And last, a not-exactly-for-beauty-but-kinda-for-booty product…Victoria’s Secret Laundry Detergent.
The next time you’re at the store, find this, unscrew the cap, and inhale. You’ll seriously expect feathers and butterflies to float out of the bottle. It just smells dreamy. I use it on my bras; because I don’t put them in the dryer, they retain the scent really well. I also use it on my sheets, and even blasting them in a hot dryer doesn’t get rid of the delicate scent. I love getting into bed the first few days after using this detergent. It’s just so feminine!
Even though the humidity makes it feel like you’ll never be clean enough, I feel a whole lot cleaner — and, oddly enough, cooler — when I’m using these products!
