Summer Legs

Summer Legs on Belle Belle Beauty
Summer clothes are far from my favorite. Regular readers will know that I love layers and cozy fabrics of fall best. But one thing I do welcome is retiring my black tights and baring my legs when the summer arrives. But that also comes with the issue of dry and pasty skin. To remedy that, I am sharing ome of my favorite items that have been on rotation the last month or so here:

Kate Somerville Somerville360° Tanning Towelettes – Hands down, the best self-tanner out there. The cloths are so easy to use (and travel with). I just wipe on my legs quickly when the towelette is fresh and then buff on the color over a minute or so each leg to ensure everything is even. The color is natural and says put for a week. Plus, it doesn’t mess up sheets or clothes and has a relatively pleasant scent.

Miracle Skin Transformer Tinted Body Lotion – Sometimes a faux tan can only take you so far. If you want to up your game, try a tinted lotion like this one. The ingredients help firm skin, including caffeine that works against cellulite. And the shimmer is more subtle than “over-the-top”.

mark. Naked Love Body Butter – My tans tend to last longer when I moisturize my skin at night. Since I prefer something without a tint and slightly richer in the PM, I reach for body butters. The newest from mark smells like a summer dream: apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk. It is perfectly rich but still melts into skin.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Kukui Nut Body Oil – You can’t beat the shower as a great time to hydrate. I like using oils right at the end of the shower to “seal” in moisture. My recent oil smells like a Hawaiian vacation – and as close as I will get to a Hula for the foreseeable future. Vegetarian and cruelty-free.

note: Honorable mention for PrttyPeaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion in Medium which is vegan, natural and gluten-free. It has slightly more shimmer than the Miracle Skin and can be used on the face and hair.

Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer

Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer // Belle Belle Beauty

This little baby hits Sephora shelves today and you don’t want to miss it. I’ve been trying out this face and body luminizer for a couple days and it is just what the doctor ordered for – let’s just say not-so-tan – winter skin. I’ve been using it as a highlighter, skin evener and leg shimmer, all to great success.

Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer // Belle Belle Beauty

The cream is ultra-lightweight and blends easily to a sheer, not to “glittery” shimmer. Because it is so sheer and balanced between warm and cool, I expect it to work on most skin tones.

The cream has just a touch of a cooling sensation. And pretty darn good staying power. Would work great for on the legs during New Year’s festivities!

Tips For The Perfect Shave

Shave tips from Schick // Belle Belle Beauty

Anyone else a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show fan? You better bet I tuned in. I loved the dramatic clothes (can you even call them clothes?), glam makeup and, of course, the Angels. As I was watching, I thought about all the exercise and makeup that goes into getting those models runway ready. And part of that is definitely a dose of hair removal. Today, I am sharing some of Schick’s tips for getting “Angel Ready” legs:

Schick’s Angel Shave Tip 1: Use a razor with a pivoting head and multiple blades to give you a smooth, close shave.

Limited Edition Schick Quatro Disposables Winter Pack // Belle Belle Beauty

While the snowflakes fall and the air is crisp and cool, Lindsay Ellingson isn’t the only one to cozy up by the fire with legs as soft as snow! Keep your legs so smooth you can skip a day or two, with the icy blue Limited Edition Schick® Quattro for Women® Disposables Winter Pack ($7.39). The compact pivoting head that follows the body’s contours, a convenient travel cap, and two Hypo-Allergenic Aloe Formula Conditioning Strips on each 4-blade cartridge will make the snow melt.

Schick’s Angel Shave Tip 2: DO keep skin relaxed while shaving. In places where hair grows in different directions and in hard-to-reach areas, such as underarms and the bikini area, try pulling the skin slightly, making it more taut and easier to shave.

Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle // Belle Belle Beauty

Be prepared with the must-have accessory that gives you the confidence and energy to strut like Candice Swanepoel all year long. When less equals more, shave, trim and transform yourself with a simple flip of the handle. The Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle ($10.99) razor features the innovative Acai and Jojoba Complex to enhance moisture, diminish irritation and create a smooth shave with a desirable pink exterior.

Schick’s Angel Shave Tip 3: Shave in the shower, and wait! Shaving should be your final step before leaving the shower. The warm moisture of a shower makes hairs soft and plump and opens your pores.

Schick Hydro Silk // Belle Belle Beauty

When rocking this year’s Fantasy Bra like Alessandra Ambrosio, you need something to go beyond the basic and hydrates your skin like no other. The 5 curve-sensing blades of the Schick Hydro Silk ($9.99) brings hydration back to your legs with a water-activated moisturizing serum by replenishing skin’s natural moisture throughout each shave leaving legs beyond silky smooth.

You’ll find all three of these razors in my bathroom. I’m a long time TrimStyle fan – it comes in so handy for bikini matinence. The Schick Hydro Silk gave me one of the closest shaves of all time, all while giving me a hefty dose of hydration. And the disposables make no sacrifices for quality – they are perfect for travel.
