Smooth skin

Finally we're having a bit of sun in the UK (despite the day of thunderstorms yesterday) which means dusting off our summer clothes and whipping out the legs. More flesh on show means more effort is needed in the shower to keep skin feeling soft and hair free, these three products have become firm favourites of mine to help achieve silky smooth skin;
1. Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub - I start with applying this product all over my body to get rid of dead skin cells and prevent flakiness. This product is grainy in texture but not too abrasive which helps to brighten and exfoliate the skin. I apply it in circular motions to damp skin and then rinse off.
2. L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil - A cleansing and softening shower oil which transforms into a milky texture once applied to damp skin. I have been using this as a shaving balm, I'll apply it after exfoliating and then use my Venus razor on anywhere that needs it. Once rinsed off skin is left feeling silky smooth - this oil works better than any shaving foam I've used for making skin feel soft. You can feel no rough bumps on your legs once getting out of the shower!
3. Vaseline Essential Moisture Lotion - This was on offer in Boots which is the reason I bought it as I'd ran out of lotion. I love the fruity smell and the fact it sinks into the skin quite quickly once applied after a shower without being greasy. The lotion contains pure oat extract which helps to soften the skin. This moisturiser is a cheap product which does its job. No complaints.
What products do you use to help your skin feel moisturised in the summer months?

  1. I've just got into oils! I use natural almond oil on my hair and skin and I promise it's purer and cheaper than the L'Ocittane one :)
