Five essential products for perfect summer legsFashion & LifestyleBeauty
Summer has well and truly begun; with hemlines getting higher and holidays beckoning, we have set about discovering the best products to ensure that baring your legs is a triumph.
From shimmering serums to easy-to-use tanners, here are the top five items we will be relying upon this summer. Venus & Olay razor in Sugarberry, £10.99, Superdrug
The Venus & Olay razor features five-blade technology that gently exfoliates for surface skin renewal, while its Sugarberry-scented moisture bars help lock in skin’s moisture.
The great thing about this razor is that it glides effortlessly over skin, without the need of shaving cream – the delicious, sweet scent is an added bonus! We especially like the small shower holder included, which allows the razor to dry safely between uses, and would also be beneficial when travelling.Champneys body massager, £8, Boots
Thanks to the experts at Champneys Spas, we can now use their finest quality accessories to achieve a professional finish at home.
For best results: apply the mineral detox firming hip & thigh gel to problem areas, and follow with the body massager, creating deep circular motions on the hips and thighs. Used daily; you are certain to see an improvement in cellulite and firmness. Soap & Glory the Firminator special bikini body formula, £12, Boots
The Firminator special bikini body formula features a killer combination of actives that can enhance the all-over appearance of your skin. Queue drainage-stimulating peptides, anti-oxidant rich Energinseng-VC complex, peppermint and litsea cubeba citrus toning oils. You may not have heard of the majority of these ingredients but we can confirm they work!
After showering, rub in a small amount of the tingly Firminator, using sweeping motions from your knees upwards. You will never break out that bikini without a bottle of this stuff again.
Palmer’s cocoa butter formula natural bronze gradual tanning moisturiser, from £5.59, Superdrug
The creamy cocoa butter formula we all adore now has a touch of self tanner, to help you achieve a natural-looking, sun-kissed body all year round. The added Vitamin E will keep your skin beautiful and healthy, as it develops a tan within a few days.
Forget the dreaded fake tan smell and welcome this yummy chocolate scent, with no streaks or iffy colour – by far our favourite gradual tan!
Palmer’s gradual tanning moisturiser is also available in a spray version. The non-greasy formula is extremely easily to apply, and the RapidSorb technology allows for complete absorption in a matter of seconds, leaving skin soft and smooth. It also features a handy lock function, to prevent unwanted spillages. Just remember to wash your hands!This Works perfect legs skin miracle, £37, Feel Unique
Cheat holiday legs with This Works serum. The unique and natural formula will repair, enhance and perfect legs in a matter of minutes: Vitamins C and E even out skin tone, while Arnica helps to fade any bruising. Simply massage into skin at any time, or use after This Works skin deep dry leg oil for extra sheen.
We love how effective this lightweight formula is – our legs looked subtly bronzed and completely flawless, without any tell-tale signs! It can also be used all over the body for an instant head-to-toe glow.
