Instead I will live through scent, with Lavanila Laboratories limited edition fragrance, Vanilla Summer. It combines fresh mango, juicy pineapple, creamy coconut milk, island sugar cane with a base of warm Madagascar vanilla. I don’t usually like vanilla based scents but this one is actually very yummy.
The new, limited edition scent comes in a Vanilla Summer Healthy Roller Ball for $19 for .32 oz, a very chic and portable item you can stash into your beach bag, suitcase or party clutch this summer. I’m a big fan of the mid-party perfume pick-me-up, so I can see this alluring, beachy scent being a great item to carry around.
I got to sample the Vanilla Summer Healthy Deodorant, which cost $18 but unfortuantely, while the scent is nice, I would not recommend it for anyone who actually sweats. It is a 100% natural deodorant, which I am sure is healthier for your body than an antiperspirant. But it did not cover up enough of my natural scent and I felt a little self conscience about 4 hours into my day. The formula is developed to nourish and protect the delicate underarm area, but driness and odor elimination is more important to me. But I don’t know how you feel, but I think I’ll stick with my regular antiperspirant and then layer on the perfume and reply to my hearts content with the rollerball.
