Bug Sprays – that DON’T STINK!!

slide_356181_3917930_free

It’s that time of year again! Camping, swimming, hanging out on the beach. Who doesn’t love sitting by the pool and laying out – or sitting by the fire after a day of camping – and roasting marshmallows? We all love it, no? You know what I DON’T LOVE? Dealing with mosquito’s! Seems like mosquito’s and camping go hand in hand. Each year as I’m packing for my trips I have to stock up on bug spray, and I hate freaking bug spray. It smells awful, feels awful, and I find it a necessary evil. Don’t we all?

You know I swear Oregon has kamikaze mosquito’s that will bite THROUGH your clothes.

Anyway, this summer there’s no need to suffer! I’ll be stocking up on these bad boys as soon as I get off here! Several companies have come out with good, clean smelling bug sprays! Where have you been all my life!

ABOVE: This bug spray repels insects without clogging pores with harsh dyes, petrochemicals and pesticides. $12.99, Bedbathandbeyond.com

Here’s a treat for your summer skin! Korres Luxury Body Butter!

IMG_2063

Korres Luxury Body Butter is from the gods.

This beautifully scented, creamy Body Butter is enriched with natural shea butter and quince extract to soften, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin. Sunflower, almond, and avocado oils deeply nourish, help improve skin elasticity and smoothness, and provide head-to-toe hydration. Each Body Butter contains a blend of over thirteen unique natural butters, emollients, extracts, and oils known to soften and revitalize dry, tired skin. The three aromatic scents include: Vanilla Guava, a blend of tropical fruits with a warm aroma of vanilla; Jasmine, which bursts with a captivating aroma of newly opened jasmine buds; and Apple Blossom, which features a crisp blend of freshly blossomed apples.

So I’ve tried Vanilla Guava (to DIE FOR), and next on my list is Jasmine! That sounds amazing!

$39 for THREE!

Another amazing product by Pacifica!

I don’t know if you noticed or not – but I’ve kind of got a thing for Pacifica. They are leading the way to becoming my favorite beauty brand. Everything I try is better than the last! This super hydrating hand cream is to die for! It is one of a few hand creams I’ve tried that completely (and I mean completely) absorbs into your hands after using it. I don’t understand why so many hand creams don’t absorb completely. Who wants greasy hands?

Not only does this lotion FEEL amazing, but the scent is to DIE for. I put it on in the car last week – and my son said it smelled so good he wanted to eat it. I mean, c’mon. He didn’t eat it, for the record.

But the scent is delicious, and lingers. Buy this…. NOW!

Just do it. (PS: This scent comes in MANY other forms besides hand cream.)
