The Bath & Body Works guide to SPRING BREAK ESSENTIALS

Your spring break packing list starts here.

The sun. The sights. The escape from it all. There are so many things to love about spring break (beaches, anyone?). But trying to cram your entire fragrance and skincare routine into one carry-on bag? Not so much. We’ve compiled our ultimate list of must-have, most-loved, gotta-pack, can’t-leave-home-without spring break travel essentials, so you can head out with all your fragrance favorites…without the last-minute packing hassle.

  1. A SUPER-FRESH BODY WASH.
  2. Skip the ultra-drying hotel soaps and pack the spring break essentials. Our mini body washes fit easily into your carry-on and are packed with shea butter and vitamin E for super-soft skin on the go. We love them because they’re non-drying and perfect for daily gentle cleansing. Take a fragrance that reminds you of one of your favorite destinations, so even if you’re vacationing in the city, your mind will be taken to a tropical paradise.

  3. A HYDRATING BODY LOTION OR BODY CREAM.
  4. Just because you’re on vacation it doesn’t mean your skin is. Daily hydration is super important, no matter what corner of the globe you’re in, especially if you’re somewhere sunny. We love our travel-size bottles of body cream and body lotion. They’re ultra-nourishing and perfect when you’re on the go (hello, easy carry-on goodies). Looking for an extra lightweight blend? Pick up a mini body lotion in your favorite fragrance with shea butter, coconut oil and vitamin E. For deeper hydration, go with a mini body cream mixed with coconut oil, vitamin E, cocoa butter and your most-loved scents.

  5. A LIGHT-AS-AIR FINE FRAGRANCE MIST OR PERFUME.
  6. An excellent body spray or perfume is a powerful accessory. Even if you’re trying to pack as little as possible, fragrance is the one thing not to skip. It instantly boosts confidence, smells fantastic and turns heads. The only issue: some fine fragrance mists and perfumes are too large to take on a trip with you. This is where we come in…introducing travel-size fine fragrance mists and perfumes. Take your signature scent with you for that fancy date, a night on the town and any other spring break adventures.

  7. AN EMERGENCY HAND CREAM.
  8. Parched hands are a vacation don’t – especially if you’re traveling by air. Our hand creams combine fluffy shea butter and hydrating vitamin E for whenever your hands need a refresh. Not flying? Not a problem! They fit perfectly in your backpack, beach bag, center console or pocket. Your hands (and friends that are totally going to borrow your hand cream) will thank you.

  9. A GERM-KILLING HAND SANITIZER.
  10. You’re traveling, germs are everywhere…and you totally don’t want to get sick while you’re on spring break. A fantastic (and super fragrant) way to keep lurking germs at bay: PocketBac hand sanitizers. They kill 99.9% of most common germs and hydrate your hands. Bonus: we also have a ton of cute holders and keychains to go with them! Clip a PocketBac on your backpack, purse, stroller…basically anywhere you need germ protection at hand.

  11. A CUTE LOOFAH OR SPONGE.
  12. Take a little piece of home with you! It’ll make shower time even more luxurious, like adding a little spa time during your trip. Plus, they’re so easy to pack – you don’t need to dedicate a lot of space to them. Another benefit? You’ll have a sponge or loofah that you know works well on your skin, so no chance of agitating your body with a rough hand towel.

  13. A SHIMMERY & NOURISHING LIP GLOSS.
  14. This goodie packs a double punch: it’s super hydrating and it adds a hint of color to your lips. Plus, adding a dual-use lip gloss or balm saves you a little extra room in your makeup bag. And there’re so many fragrance and color options, you’ll find everything you’d ever want and something to match whatever you wear.

Bonus: A SUPER-HELPFUL CAR FRAGRANCE.

Hitting the road? Fuel your trip with a car fragrance inspired by ocean vibes, spring florals, tropical beachy fragrances or whatever else you need to get in that vacation state of mind.
