Fourth of July and Summer 2011 Beauty Travel Products

July is the month that we start to really think about summer. There are festivals, bbq’s, pool parties to attend, and maybe a getaway to a favorite locale. We’ve found some perfect “take alongs” for those days of summer, to keep you feeling cool, and at your very best.

Bath and Bodyworks Japanese Cherry Blossom

Did you know that Bath and Bodyworks has travel sized favorites? That’s right; all your yummy fragrance favorites like Body Butter and Shea hand cream come in toss-able size. You don’t have to leave your signature scents behind.

Body Butters are $5.00 and come in everything from Twilight Woods to Japanese Cherry Blossom. There are also Travel sized Body Lotions, Shower Gels, and Fragrance Mists that are priced at 3/$10.
