Exotic smelling loot for your morning shower can be just what you need to get refreshed and ready for summer. It’s also the perfect way to feel like you’re stepping out of the ordinary when you tote them along on vacay.

Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Lemon Vanilla Shower Gel, $11, and Body Lotion, $11: This scent is part of the Bath & Body Works new Summer Vanillas line (they also have Berry and Coconut concoctions). We like the refreshing lemon twist and the sweet addition of the vanilla. Smells like a delicious cupcake! The lotion is light and non-greasy with aloe vera and grape seed extract, which makes it ideal for toting around so you can smooth it on at any time of the day.

H2O+ Blushing Orange Shower & Bath Gel, $12, and Moisturizing Body Balm, $17: We were expecting a strong citrus rush when we twisted open these tubes, but were pleasantly surprised by the more sophisticated blood orange and cardamom scent. The light fragrance makes it ideal for layering with your signature scent. The body balm is thick and nourishing with shea butter and vitamins E and B––perfect for revitalizing dry skin for your après-beach shower.
