Anna2BT_0-1656692224976.png

 

 

Summer is finally here, Beauty Insider Community! To celebrate one of the most fun times of the year (aka Hot BIC Summer 😉) we’re bringing in an exciting new summer challenge in the form of the first official virtual BIC World Tour! ✈ We know not everyone is able to travel at this time, so let’s go together virtually 💕

 

Each week we’ll have a new vacation-themed prompt where you’ll get to share your fantasy favorites as we travel to different climates and places across the world! 🌎

 

Check in time: Each Friday launches a new travel destination and prompt, so check back to this post weekly for more vacay fun:

 

  • (Week 1: 7/1 - 7/7) Your ultimate summer vacay: Close your eyes and picture your dream vacay … now answer this question: if you could only bring 5 beauty products along with you on this trip, what would they be?

 

  • (Week 2: 7/8 - 7/14) Hot BIC Summer: Battling against heat and humidity is no easy task! Talk about your most powerful tools, products, or tips that help you fight against the sun.

 

  • (Week 3: 7/15 - 7/21) Seamless day to night: Sometimes it’s all about versatility. Share with us your favorite products, looks, or hacks to easily go from day to night.

  

  • (Week 4: 7/22 - 7/28) Tropical & beachy: Sun, sand, water, and vibes~ what are you taking with you for a day out on the sand? Bonus points if you want to add a fun beach-inspired look. 😉

 

  • (Week 5: 7/29 - 8/4) G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S night on the town: Show off your glam looks and the products you’ll use to transform yourself for a night out!

 

  • (Week 6: 8/5 - 8/11) BIC outdoor essentials: Camping, hiking, and all-things outdoors! 🌲 What are your essentials you need with you to take on the terrain?

 

  • (Week 7: 8/12 - 8/18) Home is where the scent is: Sometimes we can all use a little piece of what we call home. 🏡💕 What fragrance item (perfume, candle, diffuser, etc.) would you bring that always reminds you of home sweet home?

 

  • (Week 8: 8/19 - 8/26) Cold weather hydration must-haves: Snow, icy winds, and cold temps – it’s not hot everywhere this time of year! Some of those most breathtaking sights take place in the cold! What are you bringing to keep your skin hydrated and feeling healthy?

That’s an amazing list @SportyGirly125 ! You are ready for the winter, whenever it comes!

@Saradestin Thank you!

Nag Champa incense and cinnamon pine cones. 

 

For as long as I can remember, my mother would always buy those bags of cinnamon pine cones that usually are sold around the holidays. They always bring me back to memories of my childhood at Christmastime. 🎄


My brother always had a thing for Nag Champa. Starting when he was a teenager up until he moved out, he was always lighting Nag Champa incense 😊

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Nag Champa, that is such a good one @Shosh85! That is sweet that it reminds you of your brother, and of home. Wish there was a candle that was just a little subtler, yet still evoked that scent 🪔 I would buy it up!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@eshoe  A subtler candle would be nice! Sometimes incense can be a little much!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Yes, so true @Shosh85. I have tried to light Nag Champa in more recent years and have also wished for something just a little bit subtler!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@Shosh85 oooh, love those cinnamon pine cones especially around the holidays. ❤️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@QueenMarceline  They smell sooo good! The individual cones are great for making Christmas decorations too! 😃

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Thank you for sharing @Shosh85 That is a beautiful scent memory.  Holidays as a kid are so special and magical 💖 that sounds so lovely!

I wonder if everyone has those smells that are Christmas for them or bring back those childhood holidays.  Clementines are always the smell of that holiday for me 💚❤️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@CynthieLu  Oh, that's so nice! - I love the smell of Clementines! The sense of smell is a powerful thing! 😊

Week 7: Home is where the scent is

Week 7 - Home is where the scent is.jpeg

I usually have a different scent in different rooms of the house, but one that I've really been enjoying for the serene comfort it provides is the Driftwood & Chamomile scent from NEST Wellness Collection. I think I have every product from this line now, but my most recent purchase was earlier this summer, the NEST New York Driftwood & Chamomile Misting Diffuser Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL diffuser oil. When I'm away from home, I pour a little of the oil into a small vial to take with me along with portable mini diffuser. I place a drop of the oil onto a cotton pad that comes with the diffuser when I get back to my hotel room after a long day of work, and it creates a nice, spa-like, relaxing feel to unwind. Ahhhh.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

The look of the Nest diffuser is very pleasing, @itsfi. The Driftwood scent seems interesting; would be wonderful if it lingered, too.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@eshoe, the diffuser component isn’t from Nest, just the oil is part of the Nest line. The oil lasts a while, a little goes a long way. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Important to know, @itsfi! Just a few drops then, in water, and a reservoir, I think? I thought it was a wall diffuser but maybe it is for the car; either way, it’s very pretty.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@eshoe, that sounds to be right for a misting diffuser that has a reservoir for water, like the diffuser in the NEST New York Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Misting Diffuser Set but the diffuser I currently take with me for travel (and the one in the photo) does not require water. I place a few drops on a cotton pad that came with the diffuser. There's no wall mount for this diffuser component so as desiged, it's not suitable to attach to a wall or plug into an outlet, but there are diffusers designed for such use, just not this one. You can place it in the car if you wanted; I haven't done so but this can sit on a flat surface, like a nightstand, work desk, or any table in the home.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Oh, ok, thank you @itsfi - that is very helpful! I have a couple of necklaces that were gifted to me that have a vented locket with felt tucked inside for diffusing.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

That is so cool @itsfi ! That’s a great idea! 😃

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Thank you @Saradestin! about 3, maybe 4 years ago, Muji had a teeny tiny diffuser set - mini bottle with mini pre-saturated diffuser sticks in the bottle - great for on the go. I took it with me to a conference and loved the concept but they only offered it in that one scent so I did some searching online and found a few mini diffusers that seemed to have a similar functionality. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

That’s awesome @itsfi 🎉🎉

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@itsfi Sounds so relaxing and a great little taste of home while away. I'll need to try out that NEST scent. 🙂

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@QueenMarceline, the NEST Wellness line is wonderful. I’ve tried 3 of the 4 scents and like them all. So far this chamomile and driftwood one is my favorite. 💙
