Looking for ways to stay sweet in the heat? LAVANILA, purveyor of all natural vanilla scented perfumes and lotions, have recently expanded their line to include great summer staples such as deodorant and lip butter with SPF.  

LAVANILA Pure Vanilla Healthy Lip Butter SPF 15 ($16.00 USD) — This is a very yummy vanilla scented and flavored lip butter with the added benefit of SPF 15.  It’s perfect for all year round, not just summer, because it soothes dry and chapped lips. Plus it feels fantastic on and gives a bit of a shine. 

This wonder balm uses 100% pure shea, kokum, illipe, and cocoa butters to deeply penetrate lips for maximum hydration and super antioxidants deliver essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to nourish and soften. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, phthalates,  GMO and triclosan.

LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant ($18.00 USD) — First of all, I have tried the Vanilla Coconut (I LOVE coconut), and it smells fantastic. And second, I’m a sweaty girl. Gross, I know, but I need serious protection in the humid Kansas City summers. This deodorant touts that it is a clinical-strength deodorant that is 100% natural, safe, and effective. Sounds like a oximoron, right? Natural, clinical strength protection? Really?

Yes, really!  This not only smells good, but keeps me dry all day. It even goes on smoothly without white residue! It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, phthalates plus it does not contain aluminum or mineral oils.

The Healthy Deodorant is available in Vanilla Coconut, Vanilla Lavender, Vanilla Grapefruit and Vanilla.
