I used to have a hard time trying to find my signature scent – you know, that one good smell that just makes you feel good! Sometimes, finding the scent that’s right for you is that little something you need to make you feel beautiful! I’ve finally narrowed it down to a few of my favorite scents for a variety of occasions and have decided to share a way to include your favorite scent into a healthy deep conditioner. Read on for more!
I wanted to mention aloe first because one of the most important factors in a favorite scent of mine is freshness. Aloe is incredibly light scented and immediately reminds me of Springtime. Because it always puts me in the best of moods, I like to find a way to wear it daily. What better way to wear daily that in an ultra smooth and soothing body lotion? Not only do I love the scent but aloe is also known to calm and soothe dry and irritated skin. I like to use Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion. It absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel and is clinically proven to moisturize deeply to sooth dry skin within the first application. During the week of May 15th, see additional savings in most Sunday papers on this item at Walgreens! Perhaps Aloe is your favorite scent too?
CUCUMBER AND AGAVE
Another scent that reminds me of freshness is cucumber. Naturally, I have been gravitated towards using the Suave Cucumber Agave Smash Body Wash. Hello… cucumber, AND agave? Yes, please! This invigorating daily Body Wash and Shower Gel is infused with cucumber fruit extract and skin conditioning vitamin E. Oh, and guess what? There’s a month long body wash deal going on at Walgreens; get 50% more free with bonus packs! That’s basically 18oz at the 12oz price at select Walgreens stores. I love this body wash because the scent is a refreshing elixir of crisp cucumber and the light, yet sweet agave. It also has the slightest touch of dewy rose which gives this scent a pleasant and refreshing surprise. The daily wash goes perfectly with the aforementioned lotion. Why not get both?
IRIS AND AMBER
On working days that stretch into fun and flirty date nights, I’d prefer a scent to match my day that will last just as long. A mixture of Iris and Amber have been my go to scents for fun and flirty. Amber is warm, intense and slightly seductive, while iris smells soft, elegant and a bit cool. It’s the perfect combo for date night but not too bold, making it appropriate to wear during a work day. Caress Mystic Forever Body Wash leaves a lasting impression with these notes. Its breakthrough Fragrance Touch Technology releases bursts of imperial iris and addictive amber for up to 12 hours, captivating the senses and leaving others wanting more. The scent won’t fade AND it leaves your skin feeling ultra moisturized. There’s also an offer the week of May 15th! $2.99 on select 12oz body washes. A steal!
My absolute favorite scent in the Spring and Summer months is that of apricot. It’s an upbeat blend of fruit and floral. For scent-sational skin (and hair… but I’ll get to that in a moment), try this! One of my favorite skin care products of all time actually has the scent of apricots. I’ve mentioned before in one of my videos that I like to shave with scrubs. St. I’ves Apricot Scrub is hands down one of the best scrubs I’ve ever tried and it’s been a staple in my shower routine since I was 18… a whole 10 years! No wonder its America’s #1 scrub brand. Also, during the week of May 8th, but one get one 50% off at Walgreens! The award winning Apricot Scrub deep cleans, instantly leaving skin smooth and glowing. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and has 100% natural exfoliants. The scrub is also sulfate, parabean and oil free. It keeps my skin incredibly smooth, so I can rock my spring dresses and summer shorts with no problem! Trust me, it’s AMAZING!
I also have a great DIY Apricot deep conditioner that is not only great for the health of your hair but also smells delicious. Smelling great doesn’t just have to come from your skin. Sometime when your hair smells great, you feel great… and people will definitely notice. Apricots contain Vitamin A and C and beta-carotene, making this extra great for healthy hair and skin. If you’ve got dry or frizzy hair, this DIY Apricot Deep Conditioner is the perfect remedy for all hair types!
