LAVANILA Healthy Summertime Obsessions

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Longtime readers are surely aware that I use LAVANILA all year long, but there is just something about their fresh and healthy body care products that are so perfectly suited to the warm summer months. If you have yet to try their products, or if you haven't used them in a long time, then I highly recommend giving their products a try this summer. Here are a few of my current favorites that I have been using with great regularity these days.
LAVANILA The Healthy Fragrance ($58.00 for 1.7 oz. from LAVANILA, UltaSephoraDermstore and Overstock.com): I am a fan of all of their Healthy Fragrances, but my current favorites are the Pure Vanilla and the Vanilla Grapefruit. The former has a delectable warm and creamy aroma, while the latter is a wonderful tangy citrus offset by the warmth and creaminess of the vanilla. Both strike me as delicious expressions of the summer weather. Available sizes: large 1.7 oz. spray bottle or a convenient .33 oz rollerball. 

If you are among the many people who loves vanilla-based perfumes, but who is seeking a more natural fragrance– then LAVANILA The Healthy Fragrance Pure Vanilla is a treat to the senses. Where traditional commercial fragrances are loaded with phthalates and harsher chemicals, LAVANILA makes theirs with all-natural and organic ingredients that are completely free of all harsh chemicals. Instead, they infuse organic sugar cane alcohol with a whole host of essential oils and botanicals, and the end result is delectably scented fragrances that are healthy and safe.

Pure Vanilla. which is described as a blend of pure Madagascar Vanilla, sheer Freesia and creamy Tonka Bean, is a warm and sheer floral and vanilla fusion that sits close to the skin without being in the least bit overpowering. It is neither too sweet, nor is it too floral, but instead it has all of the richness of vanilla without smelling like dessert.

According to LAVANILA,

The perfect vanilla, this sexy blend of pure Madagascar vanilla, sheer freesia, and creamy tonka bean is seductive and magnetic. A grown up expression of vanilla, this fragrance is more vanilla bean than vanilla cookie.

LAVANILA’S collection of all-natural fragrances is luxurious and addictive. Each fragrance starts with a warm base of Madagascar vanilla and layers on a unique blend of pure essential oils for an exquisite expression of nature that capture a mood, a memory or a moment in time. Hailed as the World’s First Healthy Fragrance, organic sugar cane alcohol is infused with skin saving antioxidants for a modern twist on the classic art of perfumery.

Ingredients: Alcohol Denat. (from Organic Sugar Cane), Botanical Fragrance Blend, Deionized Water, Lycium Barbarum (Goji) Powder, Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium (Canadian Willowherb) Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive Leaf) Extract, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum (Chamomile) Extract, Oat Amino Acids, Glycerin (Vegetable), Vanilla Planifolia.

LAVANILA Vanilla Grapefruit Rollerball ($19.00 for 0.33 oz. from LAVANILAMacy's, Ulta and Sephora): This combination of warm Madagascar Vanilla and tangy pink grapefruit is such an unexpected surprise. The vanilla warms up grapefruit and transforms it into a creamy, warm citrus.

According to LAVANILA,

An uplifting citrus, this addictive blend of juicy pink grapefruit, fresh lime, crisp cedarwood, and warm Madagascar vanilla is fresh and inviting. Kissed by sunshine, this unique scent lifts the spirits.

Notes: Pink Grapefruit, Lime, Bergamot, Orange, Cedarwood, Madagascar Vanilla.
Style: Exotic. Sensual. Addictive.

Ingredients: Alcohol denat. (from Organic sugar cane), Botanical fragrance blend, Deionized water, Lycium barbarum (Goji) powder, Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu plum) fruit extract, Epilobium angustifolium (Canadian willowherb) extract, Olea europaea (Olive leaf) extract, Alteromonas ferment extract, Chrysanthellum indicum (Chamomile) extract, Oat amino acids, Glycerin (Vegetable), Vanilla planifolia.
LAVANILA The Healthy Body Butter in Fresh Vanilla Lemon ($19.00 for 6.7 oz. from LAVANILA, Sephora and Beauty Encounter): This rich and creamy body butter absorbs instantly, leaves behind no greasy residue, and it is deeply moisturizing. The blend of vanilla and lemon aromas  results in a warm and creamy sweet scent that is neither too sweet, nor in the least bit overpowering. It is refreshing and perfect for the warm weather, and it is one of my very favorite body butters during the summer.

According to LAVANILA,

This super soft, all-natural body butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100 percent pure shea and cocoa butters blend with powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration. Super soft scents and a non-greasy formula create the ultimate indulgence. Layer with any LAVANILA Healthy Fragrance to enhance your scent experience.

LAVANILA delivers a new generation of healthy and luxurious body care products rich in natural and organic ingredients, free from harsh chemicals and clinically proven to be effective, safe, and nourishing.

LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant in Vanilla + Water for Peace ($14.00 for 2 oz. from LAVANILA, Ulta and Sephora): My go-to daily deodorant has been LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant for many years now, and I love them more than I can begin to describe. They are healthy, devoid of harmful ingredients, they smell lovely and they are very effective. Furthermore, they neither stain clothing, nor do they leave a white residue on the skin. They are, in a word, perfection.

The new LAVANILA Elements Collection, which is available at Sephora, is a, "collection of fresh, energizing deodorants where health and wellness collide." LAVANILA sought inspiration from the "core elements of nature — Air, Water and Earth" and these aluminum-free deodorants are "infused with carefully curated blends of pure essential oils to awaken our connection to the Elements and the immense power within them." I love all three of their new scents, but lately I have been wearing Vanilla + Water for Peace because I just can't get enough of the Chamomile and Jasmine aroma on these warm summer days.
The LAVANILA Elements Collection is available in three delectable scents:

Vanilla + Air for Creativity: "An uplifting, floral pairing of violet and rose, perfect for a budding artist or brainstorming session." This lovely light floral has a beautiful floral aroma that is punctuated by rose and violet, but it is neither too strong or sweet, nor is it powdery. Instead, the lovely fragrance sits close to the skin and has a refined and elegant floral scent.

Vanilla + Water for Peace: "A calming blend of chamomile and jasmine ideal for yoga class or stressful meetings." This deodorant has such an extraordinary aroma that is best described as a sweet floral reminiscent of a warm ocean breeze infused with Jasmine and other light florals.

Vanilla + Earth for Balance: "A warm and woody combination of patchouli and sandalwood that enhances focus and concentration." While its description might summon thoughts of a heavy woody scent punctuated by a pungent patchouli, this is a light, sweet and creamy woodsy scent infused with warm florals, and without any detectable notes from the patchouli. It has a depth and yet it isn't in the least bit overpowering.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Juice, Water), Propanediol (Corn Derived), Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Stearate (Coconut Derived), Silica, Carrageenan (Seaweed Derived), Stearyl Behenate (Coconut Derived), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon Peel Oil), Inulin (Artichoke Derived), Saccharomyces Ferment, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Sugar Derived), Yeast Beta Glucan, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Valeriana Officinalis Root Extract (Valerian), Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract (Goji Berry), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Oil, Botanical Fragrance Blend. Formulated without Sulfates or Phthalates.
Overall Assessment: I couldn't be happier with these tried and true LAVANILA picks, and the aforementioned products are my current summertime favorites.
