If you’ve ever been complimented on your scent, you likely solely attribute it to your fragrance. While that final spray is usually the last thing you put on before walking out the door, it all actually starts with what’s underneath.
A nicely scented body wash and body cream provide the perfect base layer for your fragrance. For example, if you plan on using a fragrance with vanilla top notes, a complimentary body wash and cream with the same base notes will only amplify that scent.
OUAI is one of the few brands that create body care products that smell like an experience, and its new St. Barts Gentle Body Wash and Moisturizing Body Cream will leave you feeling and smelling like you just left the spa at the most expensive resort in the tropics.
OUAI St. Barts Gentle Body Wash, $28
Available today at Sephora (exclusively online and on the Sephora app), these two products instantly transport you to the islands with their sweet and juicy scents. Each product has notes of ocean breeze accord, dragon fruit, tuberose, musk and more.
The Gentle Body Wash, specifically, though, is one of the best I’ve used. It’s incredibly hydrating and fragrant but not aggressive. It’s infused with hydrating jojoba seed and rosehip oils and gently cleanses the skin without stripping or leaving any residue. It’s honestly the most luxurious body wash I’ve used to date, even when compared to much more expensive options.
While the body wash feels and smells amazing on its own, its effects and scent are only intensified when paired with the Body Cream.
OUAI St. Barts Moisturizing Body Cream, $38
What I love most about the OUAI St. Barts Moisturizing Body Cream is that a little goes a long way, giving you so much bang for your buck.
It has a whipped texture that moisturizes the skin for all-day hydration, prevents dryness, and is fast-absorbing. It’s packed with powerhouse ingredients like Cupuacu butter, squalane and coconut oil and leaves the perfect glowy, sun-kissed finish on your skin.
Use these together to get the most hydrated look and the richest, deepest vacation-ready scent that’s perfect for everyday wear.
