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

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!

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)

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

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

@Anna2BT these are some of my favorite products and essentials for the great outdoors:

* A hat to protect my head from the sun (any hat will work).

* A towel to sit on the ground and enjoy some rest and the beautiful surroundings. The one @TeamBIC sent my way would go with me for sure (it is already coming to every beach visit since I received it) 

* Water and some energy bars or nuts.

* A good camera to take nice pictures.

* Mosquito and other bugs repellent (a must that should have gone the first on my list 😅)

* LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Intense Hydration with Vitamin C 

* Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara 01 Waterproof Big is The New Black just in case I want to look more put together.

* Tons of sunscreen! I specially like to take samples so I don’t add too much weight to the trip/hike, but for the body I always use value jumbo sizes. I am loving:

REN Clean Skincare Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 1.69 oz/ 50 mL because it is a matte sunscreen and it stays in place in hot humid conditions.

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 1.7 oz/ 50 mL because it looks amazing on the skin and has great ingredients.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sunscreen SPF 50 because it has high SPF levels, has great ingredients and smells so good! 

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mL because my skin loves it.

Lancôme UV Expert Aquagel Defense Sunscreen, Primer & Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 50 because it has great protection and works both as moisturizer and primer.

* At the end of the day and after a good shower, I would pamper my skin with Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream to close the perfect day enjoying nature!

@Saradestin Great outdoor essentials

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

Thank you @SportyGirly125 !!

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

This is so great @Saradestin  Love sample sizes for adventure purposes 😉 I hope you can go explore the great outdoors soon ❤

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

Thank you @CynthieLu ! Yes, I love the mountains and hiking and need to find the occasion to enjoy them, hopefully soon!

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

@Saradestin  Important question! 🙂 Do you happen to know of a good insect repellent that's not too stinky? 

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

@PrettyPaint @Saradestin 

Okay, have you tried the ones that clip to you? They have a little battery pack (you can't get them wet 😅 fyi... lessons learned) they smell a little but it's so much nicer than putting insect repellent on your self or your clothes)

Note** I spray my shoes thou,  I live in tick country and I think it's helpfull**

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

@CynthieLu  Oh my goodness, I have never heard of that! I am totally looking it up now, though. Mosquitos in particular never leave me alone. 

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

Thank you for sharing @CynthieLu ! I didn’t know that! So cool! 😃😃 I have to buy it!

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

No @PrettyPaint 😕, sadly all the ones that I have tried are very stinky and can repel both insects and humans 😅 

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

@Saradestin  haha thanks! That makes sense. The bugs love me. 

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

That happens to me as well @PrettyPaint . If I am present, no one needs repellent because all bugs will come to me exclusively so everyone is safe (but me) 😅

Do you like teetering on the edge? 
Try the Hottest Seesaw around (literally on fire) 
Bust out your inner child, Evel Knievel style!!!!

I personally prefer not to wear makeup when I’am outside no matter the activity. I believe the best thing about being in the great outdoors is that nature doesn’t care if your makeup looks perfect, if you smell like roses, or if your dressed to impress. It’s time to leave your makeup bag behind and let nature give you a makeover (ie: it does an amazing job). I don’t require a giant purse, backpack, or suitcase filled with all the luxury items I use at home. For me, as long as I have protection from the elements and basic necessities I’m good to go. Whenever I’m going outside for a prolonged period I never wear perfume or any other sweet smelling scents as they seem to attract the mosquitoes and black flys(especially around dusk) but I do wear Degree deodorant ( or as I like to call it “redneck perfume”) in the Vanilla and Jasmine (amazing scent) which is strong enough that those around you can smell it, and it provides great protection (72hr). I definitely make sure to pack plenty of bug spray and bug spray wipes for face and other small areas. For me, Off Deep Woods is my go to for both (their wipes come in resealable packages as well as singles). I also pack sunscreen (lots) in different varieties and brands. For my kids I tend to use Blue Lizard because its made for sensitive skin and its available in stick form for easier face and ear application. I also use Banana Boat kids sport spray with power stay technology in spf 50 for the really sweaty times or if we are planning to be in the water for awhile. My go to for adults is Banana Boat with spf 50 its water and sweat resistant and it doesn’t seem to wear off as quick as other brands have. I do apply a daily face (Olay spf 15) and a lip (Cay Skin Isle Lip Balm spf 30) moisturizer every morning so the most exposed parts of my skin are protected at the start the day. Normally when we camp its in a remote area with no luxury accommodations at all.  Our stove is a grate over the fire with a table made from a log sitting flat side down, the washroom is a bucket of water a bar of soap and a washcloth, and a tide pen (laundry). The toilet is usually located at the back of the nearest tree, light is provided by the sun,moon and fire (if you can start one), and the entertainment varies by location and campers.

That’s such a cool picture @bRiTtKnEe88 ! And I agree with you, for the great outdoors makeup stays at home. I would only consider, if any, to bring mascara, but that’s it 😁

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

💚💚Lots of hydrating , staying clear of direct sun, and minimal fragrances that could attract bugs. 

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

Yes @Bloveme ! That’s it! Simple and effective!

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

Great advice @Bloveme😁
