Best Summer Fragrance Obsession Review: Amber - Vitabath Body Wash & Lotion, Olivina Body Butter & Bar Soap, Bvlgari Omnia Indian Garnet Eau de Toilette Spray

When we think of summer and fragrance, we usually go light with a quick spritz of a body spray — as it won’t interfere with our sweaty bodies, altering the fragrance’s actual scent. But, although we might reach for a fragrant concoction that promises you to smell like the beach, we’ve been obsessing over the warm and classic scent of amber! Check out some of our favorite bath products and perfumes to get us all summer-ready for a hot night out.

BeautyStat.com’s Beauty Editor Spring Fragrance Round-Up – The 21 Best Spring 2014 Perfume Scents #bstat

Vitabath® Body Wash and Hydrating Lotion in Sweet Vanilla Amber: This brand-new fragrance from Vitabath combines the familiar, sweet scent of vanilla with warm amber and tiare flower. Unlike ordinary bath washes and lotions, Vitabath Fragrance Collections are free of sulfates, parabens, silicone and mineral oils.

Vitamins A, B3, B5, C, & E provide your skin with soothing moisture, along with an antioxidant-rich superfruit complex to protect and revitalize the skin with acai, goji, coffee, noni, pomegranate, green tea and mangosteen. You’re skin won’t feel dry or in need of lotion even after using the body wash, which foams up to an incredible later. But, you’ll want the light fragrance to linger, so slather on the light yet hydrating lotion before bed. Vitabath products are available at Stage Stores, Bed Bath & Beyond, K Mart, Walgreens, Ulta Beauty, Rite Aid and many other retailers.

Olivina Sandalwood Amber Body Butter & Bar Soap: Don’t be fooled by the exotic packaging, the Olivina line is made in the good old USA! Calming amber is combined with woody  sandalwood this time for a classic scent to fill your bathroom. The mega-rich and exceptionally concentrated Body Butter instantly soothes and nourishes dehydrated skin, leaving you feeling soft, smooth and moisturized without any sticky residue. And before you dry off, the triple-milled Bar Soap uses natural fragrances and essential oils to hydrate skin with shea butter to ensure long-lasting hydration.

Bvlgari Omnia Indian Garnet Eau de Toilette Spray: To keep your amber obsession going strong, make sure it lasts with a spritz of Bulgari’s latest woody and floral eau de toilette. Created for the ultra-feminine woman who is sure of her charms, the exotic fragrance is at once desirable, seductive, mysterious and elusive. Bring that mystery to life with a delicate array of mandarin, saffron, Indian tuberose, osmanthus, Indian woods and amber. Plus, the bottle is just gorgeous with its fiery orange radiance and unique shape.

Review, Swatches: Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Surf And Sand Summer 2014 Collection: Eye Palettes, Brightening Blush, Lip Color, Pencil

Bobbi Brown‘s latest collection, Surf and Sand, has us happy that summertime is upon us (just check out those Eye Palettes in Surf and Sand). Beautiful shades to enhance a summer face whether you’re golden bronze or a darker shade of pale, like myself. Beautiful shimmering cheeks, light lip textures and an eyeliner that won’t quit are all included in this summer collection!

Review, Swatches: Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Surf And Sand Summer 2014 Collection: Eye Palettes, Brightening Blush, Lip Color, Pencil

For cheeks, Bobbi offers up 2 shades in the Brightening Blush range: three pearly shades in each compact to enhance any face. Bronze is a medium golden flush that will add that Jennifer Lopez glow. Lighter gals, note, this shade is gorgeous, but go easy on the application. Too much and instead of Jennifer, you might go Oompa Loompa.

The Pink shade is gorgeous on all complexions. For darker skintones, this will be nice to add a little pop of shimmery color. And of course on us light skintone gals, this can be used as our blush on a hot summer night.

For eyes, Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Bronze looks great on just about everyone. I love these pencils. I wore them this weekend in Atlantic City, and this puppy DID NOT BUDGE! She offers other shades in this collection, such as Black Chocolate, but the bronze color is perfect for summer!

For the lip category, there are 3 great Sheer Lip Color shades: Summer Nude (a warm, coral nude), Peach Sorbet (a slightly pearlized coral), Sunlit Pink (a nude pink shade with golden shimmer; think of a beautiful sunset!). There you have it. Gorgeous shades to enhance your summer vacation!

Coming off of the success of the No Foundation FoundationDr. Perricone has launched a full line of #NoMakeupSkincare cosmetics to get that no makeup look with the added benefits of Dr. Perricone’s well-known nourishing and skin-firming ingredients we all love. Let’s take a closer look at how these products look and wear on skin!

Retouch and get a flawless complexion with the NEW! No Foundation Foundation Serum, which harnesses the scientific benefits of neuropeptides to help regenerate and restore your skin. It creates a weightless and breatheable second skin effect with a semi-matte finish, containing a broad spectrum, mineral SPF 30.

Imperfections beware! The No Concealer Concealer is a versatile, multi-tasking eye concealer, eye primer, highlighter and blemish coverage in one. Crease-proof and hydrating, this unique formula does not settle into imperfections, aging one’s appearance, but rather smoothes the contours of the eyes, while fading away dark circles and correcting skin undertones. It includes vitamin ester C and helps boost collagen production and gradually fades away dark circles.

Summer Skincare For Your Baby: How To Protect Infant Skin With AVEENO® Baby Products #Sponsored

It’s time for some summer fun for you AND your little one! So, while you’re caring for your skin with sunscreen, cleansers and lotions, make sure to consider a brand that puts your baby’s sensitive skin first, like AVEENO® Baby.

Recommended by pediatricians and trusted by parents like you, AVEENO® Baby products are specifically formulated to be gentle yet effective on baby’s sensitive skin. Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat, AVEENO® Baby products soothe, replenish and restore the barrier function of baby’s delicate skin. To learn more about the proper ways of protecting your baby’s skin during the summer, AVEENO® Baby asked dermatologist, and mom, Dr. Jeanine Downie to share her best tips to care for baby’s skin this summer.

Hydration Is Key

Although it’s hot outside, infant skin is still prone to dehydration during the summer months. Make sure to continue using a hydrating cleanser and wash that moisturize baby’s skin with soothing and hydrating ingredients. Dr. Downie suggests using AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash, formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and rich emollients to gently cleanse and soothe skin. And, for year-round moisturization, try AVEENO® Baby Daily Moisture Lotion — the non-greasy formula hydrates baby’s skin for 24-hours with no drying alcohols or pore-clogging ingredients.

Dr. Jeanine Downie

The Right Age To Use SPF

You can start using sunscreen after 6 months of age, along with some protective clothing to better shield your infant from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. “I recommend complete sun avoidance for the first six months, including the use of UPF hats, umbrellas and protective clothing,” says Dr. Downie.

What Ingredients To Look For In Infant Skincare

As with finding the right sunscreen for an adult, Dr. Downie advises selecting a sunscreen with Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection of SPF 30 or higher for your infant. Look for formulas that are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, pediatrician and dermatologist recommended and contain soothing ingredients to help moisturize and prevent irritation. Mineral sunscreens are a great option, as they contain ingredients such as Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, which form a protective barrier on top of the skin that scatters UVA/UVB rays. Try AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50, which is formulated 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients, a more natural alternative for your little one.
