9 Beauty Products That Will Instantly Transport You To The Beach

It's cold. It's dreary. It feels like wind tunnels of doom are around every single corner. To put it simply, the freezing gloom that is the dead of winter doesn't exactly inspire confidence that warmer weather is only weeks away.

Fear not! Creating an oceanfront, spa-like oasis in the comfort of your own home is the best way to combat freezing forecasts. Beauty products that smell and look like the sea are an instant pick-me-up, especially with their cool blue and soothing green colors.

Beach-inspired formulas work from head-to-toe. Salty exfoliating scrubs and texturizing sprays will tend to dry skin and limp locks, while seaweed and kelp treatments will make any dull face glow.

Grab the nearest pair of sunglasses, make a piña colada and prepare for the best stay-cation of your life with these products below.
