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!

Do you have any favourite summer leg products?

  1. I hate how hair grows so fast in summer! Definitely agree with a good exfoliator. I like Lush's Rub Rub Rub. I also love my Schick Razor, never going back to a disposable one!

  2. Never really heard of the D'Fluff. But after reading about it I think I might give it a go. I most of the time just use a body wash too :D

  4. I love using coconut oil for my legs, but tends to sit on the skin so in the day I love using LUSH Dream Cream. So great if you have sensitive skin (or not so sensitive skin!).

    I'm guilty of using conditioner/normal soap too, I thought you could only buy shaving foam and that stuff is messy so defluff sounds amazing, Lush alwasy finds a way to hook me in.

    Love pulp friction and the caudalie oil, would love to try the shaving soap as I always tend to use conditioner too haha, although the l'occitane almond shower oil is quite a good although decadent way to do it xxx

  25. I'm definitely hoping to try out D'Fluff. I've heard good things about it and I smelled it in stores over the weekend and it seemed quite lovely. Still working through products but I'll be trying this at some point. xx
