Perfect Summer Pins
Just throwing it out there, my legs are a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g but perfect, especially in summer, after being stuck in opaque tights for the past six months. But there are a few products I've discovered that do make them look slightly better, and with the help of a little tan I've actually braved a few short skirts this year!
First up is D'Fluff from Lush, which I actually only purchased last week after seeing on a few blogs. It's a shaving soap ( am I terrible in that I used to just use a conditioner or normal body wash? ) with a lovely sweet, strawberry scent, and is packed with ingredients like cocoa butter, coconut oil and rosehip oil which leave the skin feeling really nourished and soft. You can use this pretty much anywhere to shave, I'm even going to see if Kane fancies giving it a go on his stubble, although I can imagine his reaction.
A good exfoliation once in a while is essential for keeping legs looking in tip top condition. Note, don't do this immediately before or after shaving, or your legs will be looking far from perfect and you'll probably be in a bit of pain too. My go-to scrub for quite some months now has been Soap & Glory's Pulp Friction, which has a gorgeous citrus-y scent, perfect for this time of year. I love how it foams up nicely too which makes it not too abrasive and I feel I can use this all over the body without any sort of irritation.
Usually after hopping out of the bath or shower, I'd throw on the Caudalie Divine Oil. This is a gorgeous body oil which leaves my skin feeling beautiful, so hydrated, and it leaves a bit of a glow too which is lovely on top of a tan. But it's been neglected recently as Laura Mercier Creme Brulee body cream has taken the top spot of moisturisers. I've always been a bit lazy with these sorts of things after a shower, but this little pot actually makes me excited to moisturise. I even find myself having a little sniff when I go past the bathroom. It moisturises really well and leaves the gorgeous, caramel scent lingering for hours afterwards. I can't get enough of it!
