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?

 

Reply below to share your looks, products, thoughts, and tips on the vacay prompts for our BIC World Tour! ✈  Remember to tag any products you would be using (if applicable!) with the “#” sign. We look forward to all the fun we’ll have together for the weeks to come!

(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?

 

What a great question, as far as perfumes go there are a couple that just somehow remind me of home or give off a particularly home-y feeling. The ones that come to mind instantly are: 

TOCCA Stella 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray 

Maison Margiela ’REPLICA’ Beach Walk 

 

As far as candles go, I've always been extremely fond of sweet/baked goods scented candles. That particular genre is always something that's lit in my home therefore, will always remind me of home. My all time favorite used to be Yankee Candle Banana Nut Bread but I'm fairly certain they have unfortunately discontinued it. 😞

 

Another one I light quite a bit during the winter months is Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie which I can consider also quite home-y.

@SportyGirly125 It really is, I love their rose facial spray too! So good for such a low price. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Oooh I could go for some of those winter scents (and weather!) right now, @SportyGirly125

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

@eshoe @I always forget how hot and cold it can get here. Can’t wait till the weather is back in the 70s. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

No kidding @SportyGirly125. Maybe even some 60’s!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Yes @SportyGirly125 Scents can bring you so many places,  I love the smell of citrus like grapefruit or clementines in the winter,  it just makes me feel so uplifted. And yeeeees pumpkin smells in the fall 😋 I love your fall picks 🤩 pumpkin just makes me feel good and nostalgic. Jasmine and Vanilla and Lilac are good for me any time of year and smell like home to me. 

I'm a big fan of using a drop of essential oil in a carrier oil like jojoba or sweet almond to make my own scents, I have necklaces with little bottles on them to carry the scent with me throughout the day if i don't feel like wearing any or I go somewhere scent free I can take it off easily.

@CynthieLu Thank you!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

I agree @SportyGirly125 ! I love different scents at different times of the year. Your picks are all awesome!

Week 6: BIC Outdoor Essentials 

@Anna2BT, the closest I've come to camping 🏕 the past few years is playing pretend camping with a couple of little ones 😂 and have included dolls, stuffed animals and toys. 

Week 6 - Outdoors 1.jpg

 

My essentials for other outdoor activities though include sunblock, lip balm, a hair tie, a hat, and lots and lots of water. These were my go-to's this past week for a couple of hikes, and a day at the park:

Week 6 - Outdoors 2.jpg

Dr. Jart+ Every Sun Day™ Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50+ 1.69 oz/ 50 mL is a physical sunblock that works nicely for both face and body. 

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm Poppy to keep my lips soft and moisturized while adding a fun summer coral tint to the lips.

Slip Small Slipsilk™ Scrunchies helps to secure my hair in a bun or ponytail and away from my face.

That is pure “glamping” @itsfi ! 😁 I love your essentials! 😍

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Hahaha, @Saradestin, I have a feeling "glamping" would be more my speed. 😆 I can do the no makeup bit, but the bugs, ack! I went camping once and had a heck of a time trying to get to sleep because I was so worried about getting bitten. Ugh. Had I known about Repel then, I would have doused myself in it, and that would probaby mean I'd have a tent to myself. 🤣

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Sure @itsfi ! 😂🤣😂 And you would keep the surroundings bug-free! 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Outdoor essentials? I think the main thing for me would be sunscreen. I like most products by supergoop. 

Supergoop! Play! Mineral SPF Stick .67 oz / 18.9 g 

 

I feel like I should be good and put that water is my outdoor essential. However, I'm just going to be honest and say coffee. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

@PrettyPaint, coffee has water in it, right?  

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

@itsfi  That's how I reassure myself. 🙂 There's no way I would come close to my water intake otherwise. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Defintley agree with you @PrettyPaint spf is always an essential 😄 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite products, tips, and essentials for the great outdoors! (Week 6)

Supergoop is a staple in so many community member’s essentials @PrettyPaint! I could have added Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ to my list because I love it. I haven’t tried Supergoop Play
