Smell like 'vacation' right at home with Güd Natural Body Lotion

See also

Would you like to smell tropical and vacation-y this summer, even if you're staying at home? Moisture requirements change for people during the warm weather months. You need replenishment from the sun and surf -- or perhaps pool chlorine -- but you don't want the rich, occlusive creams of harsh wintertime. Güd to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

The Burt's Bees folks have a fun, natural skincare line. Mango Moonbreeze is a fruity-floral scent that is meant to evoke scents of "mango, jasmine and vacation". It's in a tube, but is more of a liquid consistency. It sinks right into your skin and won't leave a waxy film. With no petrolatum, you'll feel smooth, not sticky in the heat. You'll be able to dress right away after application.

If you need to carry it in a 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag, it's worth heading to the dollar store to get one of those little plastic travel bottles, under 100 ml.

You can find this lotion very conveniently:

Some stores don’t carry every product so you may want to call ahead and check. Or you could just buy whatever güd stuff you’re looking for on their website.
