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

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!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

After sharing my 5 favorite products (that I actually own) and my top destination if I only could choose one, I am going to share my top “wish list” products that I would happily take on my second dream trip. Again, the mosquito repellent would sure be in the suitcase 😅.

Shiseido Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Tint SPF 20 325 Medium Keyaki 

Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara 

Gucci Waterproof Retractable Eyebrow Pencil Brun 

Natasha Denona Glam Face & Eye Palette Light 

Dior Rouge Dior Refillable Lipstick 824 Saint Germain Satin 

I went fancy on my wish list! 😂

 

And my second dream destination, following very closely my fist one (it was a difficult decision), is China. Again, I would need a full month. Such an amazing country! I need to go!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@Saradestin omg these pictures are breathtaking! 😍

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

Aren’t they @Anna2BT ? I need to go!!! With 5 beauty products, 10 or even non!! 😃

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@Saradestin, love your fancy travel list! Lots of fabulous beauties there! ♥️ That’s a huge “yes” to mosquito repellent for traveling around China! I enjoyed my time there and would go back to visit more sites, but I did not miss the mosquitos. 😆 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

So jealous @itsfi!! I wouldn’t miss the mosquitoes either 😖😖😖

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@Saradestin @My parents have been to the Great Wall and I’m so jealous. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

My family was in a discussion about just how visible it is from space, @SportyGirly125. That is very cool that your parents were able to visit and see it in person.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

😃😃😃😃😃 I am so jealous too @SportyGirly125 !!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

What a fun topic! For reference purposes, my current dream vacation would be a few weeks spent in France and Italy - maybe with a few detours. My 5 must-have products, not in any specific order:

 

  1. Atelier Cologne Lemon Island Pure Perfume 3.3 oz/ 100 mL Pure Perfume Spray- Absolutely gorgeous, fresh scent with a tease of vanilla
  2. fresh Soy pH-Balanced Hydrating Face Wash- HG face wash, it completely removes my makeup and is v gentle
  3. amika Bust Your Brass Blonde Purple Conditioner- I'm an unnatural blonde and I use this every other wash to tone, works super well and on the days I'm not using it I'm applying amika The Kure Intense Bond Repair Hair Mask 8.4 oz/ 250 mL 
  4. Vichy Sunscreen Ideal Soleil Sport 60 SPF - I buy this from the drugstore and it's such an amazing sunscreen, works for face & body
  5. Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm Vanilla- I've been repurchasing this over and over since I discovered it, do yourself a favour & pick one up

 

Ideally I'd also have all my makeup but this is assuming I am restricted to MAX 5 products!! But, to be fun, if I could only have 5 makeup items:

 

  1. ILIA Fullest Volumizing Mascara Classic Black
  2. Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Liquid Blush Hope 
  3. MERIT Day Glow Dewy Highlighting Balm Cava 
  4. NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer  
  5. Hourglass Voyeur Waterproof Liquid Liner Black 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@lavendersmoke, it would be so fun to explore France and Italy! ♥️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

I haven't been there since COVID started and I've been dying to go back again, fingers crossed I can drop by in the fall when it's cooled down 🛫

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@lavendersmoke, that would be amazing if you were able to go in the fall! 🤞🏼🤞🏼 I’ll be living vicariously through you if when that trip happens! ✈️ 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

I hope you can have your dream vacation soon as well! ♡♡♡

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

Great dream destination and list of products @lavendersmoke !

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

Great selection @RyNieDaMan !!! 👍

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

This is such a cute celebratory thread 🤗. I love seeing everyone's posts.

 

My definition of "beauty product" is make-up and fragrance/perfume. I consider skincare and haircare products personal health necessities or personal health products. 

It wasn't until reading everyone else's posts then I realized Sephora didn't specify what they mean by "beauty product". 

 

On vacations, I very rarely bring makeup. I only bring makeup if I will be attending any formal events/occasions or if I am staying for at least 2 weeks. 

 

Beauty products to bring on a "Dream" vacay trip (if I bring makeup):

1) 1 fragrance, which one depends on my mood: Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori 1 oz/ 30 mL Eau de Parfum Spray (I got a travel-size spray so even better), Dior J'adore Eau de Parfum . 

2) LYS Beauty Triple Fix Brightening Concealer This is a great medium coverage and full coverage product that I am seriously considering just using this product alone for complexion (aka foregoing foundation & color corrector). It works good enough alone for full coverage (2 thin layers).

3) A powder to "control" my "combo" skin, any humidity, any heat, and any sweat. I only have the lawless one which absolutely sucks so I will not tag it.

4) A lipstick. The ones I have are too matte and I don't like the colors. Ideally a hydrating neutral lipstick or a neutral & non-sticky lip gloss

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@Nahnom, Dior J’Adore smells wonderful! ♥️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@itsfi It is my all-time favorite perfume 😍🌟💝💖. A classic, sophisticated, classy, elegant, and iconic perfume in my opinion. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

100% agree @Nahnom; it’s one of a handful of fragrances that I’ve repurchased more than once! ♥️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour!

@Anna2BT I don’t know what is more cruel, if to have to choose just 5 beauty products, or just one dream vacay! 😅 

Ok, after giving it a good thought, I think I am almost ready. As this is a full week challenge, I will start by trying to narrow it down to what the purpose of this challenge is and give just one dream vacay and just 5 beauty products. The rest of the days I will be adding more dream destinations and more products, probably in categories, including wish list (because, as I never have to take just 5 products in my travels, I don’t have any good multitasker 😕)

I have been fortunate enough to travel profusely, visiting over 45 countries so far and many multiple times. In some I have lived for a prolonged period of time. But if I had to choose just one of the remaining, I think it would be India. But I need at least a month! I can’t die before seeing the Taj Mahal....

You can tell I love color.... I need to see these places!! 

And as per what I would take, on top of a mosquito repellent 😅, that doesn’t count as a beauty product, my minimalistic list would be:

1- Dr. Jart+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 1.7 fl. oz/ 50 mL 

2- Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Mini Sculpture Unlocked: old multitasker that I could use both as face and eye palette to give me some color and dimension.

3- GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI Hella On Point Clean Ultra-Fine Brow Pencil 5 that I would use also as wing eyeliner

4- Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara 01 Waterproof Big is The New Black , to hold in the high humidity.

5- SEPHORA COLLECTION Retractable Rouge Gel Lip Liner 29 dressed to the 90s of course, I couldn’t leave/live without it! 😁

It is not a colorful list but I would leave the color to the beautiful Indian dresses and surroundings! ❤️❤️❤️

Yes, I would be sweating like crazy and smelling like hell, but probably it wouldn’t be too noticeable so that’s why I am not adding any perfume/deodorant 😄
