What? No outdoor shower at your beach house? Bring the unbridled joy and tropical abandon of an outdoor shower in the Hamptons or Hawaii to a five-boroughs bathtub near you.

Whether you’re lathering up in Montauk or Midtown, try one of these seriously natural shower-enhancers for the best ever summertime rinse. Each scrub, body wash, and body lotion delivers a hint of the far-flung tropics.

Bath butler not included.

 

Lavanila 2-in-1 Body Wash
LATHER UP

Lavanila Vanilla Coconut 2-In-1 Body Wash ($15) almost made the cutting room floor for fear I’d smell like a pina colada. Turns out, its scent is clean and subdued. Nothing like a fruity drink at all. Plus, this body wash doubles as a shaving cream, and creates a nice moisturizing lather without sodium lauryl sulfate.

Runner up: Pangea Organics Egyptian Basil & Mint Shower Gel ($16)

 

 

 

skinny skinny coffee body scrub

SCRUB DOWN

SkinnySkinny Organic Black Coffee Body Scrub ($30) is bathtime pick-me-up that uses fair-trade, finely ground coffee to stimulate and sugar to exfoliate. An idea being that the skin can benefit from the beverage’s stimulating effects. Tip: Don’t use it right before bed.

Runner up: She Essential Beauty Lemongrass Mint Sugar Scrub ($35)

 

 

moisturizing body bar malie mango butter cup

 

BONUS: MOISTURE-INFUSING BUTTER CUP

Malie Natural Mango Butter Cup ($20), made with wild-crafted mango butter, fits in the palm of your hand, and melts over your damp skin, while evoking the fantasy that you could be in Kauai, which is where this pure-and-luxe product is made. It lasts for several uses.

 

 

sparitual ginger body lotion

SLATHER ON

SpaRitual Instinctual Moisturizing Lotion ($28), with ginger essential oil, is like a Balinese spa in a bottle. Only on Bali, your bath butler would likely decant it into a gorgeous little dish for you. It also comes in a body oil ($32) for uber-dry skin.

Runner up: Primavera Ginger Lime Body Lotion ($30)
Melisse Gelula
