Summer is in full swing and it’s hot, hot, hot. The shorts and mini skirts are making their summer time debut and that means women are looking to get their legs ready for their center stage performance. Shaving can sometimes be a drag, as well as time consuming and sometimes painful. Here are few products to help keep the stubble to a minimum.
Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream- Just because this product is defined as a “Men’s” product, does not mean its hands off for women. This sulfate free, silky gel provides an incredible shaving barrier for both men and women. The natural fruit oils condition and skin and the dimethicone eliminate friction irritation.
Shaveworks The Cool Fix- Apply after shaving or waxing to calm razor burn and prevent ingrown hairs. The instant cooling sensation is soothing and relaxes any form of irritation.
Whish Pomegranate Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel- This fast absorbing gel, repairs any nicks or minor cuts and will help to soothe the skin with natural antiseptics including aloe, sage, and lemon extract. The best part is while using the product over time it will help to slow the hair growth and extend the life time of your smooth silky gams.
We all know that there is no such thing as a healthy tan. And instead of wasting our time soaking up the sun by the pool we’re doing more productive things, like trying out hundreds of different self tanners!
The new NUXE Soleil Prodigieux Self Tanning Body Lotion hit a sweet spot for us, because it’s not only a self tanner that gives a beautiful deep and rich brown tan (no orange!!!)) it also has SHIMMER! We’re not talking about glitter you’ll find in your daughters playtime makeup though, NUXE utilizes light-reflecting micro-pearls which give the skin a subtle sheen that look absolutely amazing on legs, shoulders, and the décolleté, so skin looks glowy, healthy, and tan!
Because this self-tanner is buildable you can gauge just how tan you want to be (a hint of sun or a full-fledged Bora Bora glow, all up to you), the Frangipani flower extract ensures you’ll smell yummy, too!

Imagine fields of blooming flowers, the taste of coconut sorbet, and beautiful sunsets in the French province. That’s the vision that NUXE product development team had in mind when they created the new Body Delight Essentials line.
It’s impossible to resist the sweet and sugary scent of Body Delights. With hints of coconut, orange blossom, and wild vanilla, you’ll have a hard time getting out of the bath. The scent is scrumptious for summer, and layers beautifully with your favorite perfumes. Body Delights products have superb textures that are reminiscent of freshly made fondant, and all four products are made with almond and orange flower petals which offer smoothing, softening, and soothing benefits.
The Fondant Shower Gel makes us melt with pleasure. It’s formulated without soap, so it’s extremely gentle, and the coconut derived cleansing base transforms from gel to thick, sudsy foam in the shower (so it’s great to shave with, too)!
The Fondant Body Scrub offers botanical exfoliating with orange zest, lichee kernel, and walnut shell powder. This gentle formula offers efficient exfoliation that leaves the skin smooth, glowing, and flake-free.
The 24HR Moisturizing Body Lotion further pampers the skin with wheat, sweet almond, and sunflower oil to reduce dryness while absorbing instantly and never leaving any residue on the skin.
The Fondant Firming Cream provides firming and anti-aging benefits with a cocktail of natural ingredients. Brazilian mimosa extract and oat sugar give a lifting effect, rye and kigelia Africana strengthen the cutaneous mesh, and jasmine extract with vitamin E provide antioxidant protection. This delicious texture melts into the skin quickly providing thighs, belly, bust, and arms with the TLC they need.

They are finally here… What, you ask? The amazing LaVanilla products! I first fell in love with the line of fragrance a few years back when I felt I could not find anything new or alluring to what my scent preferences were. I tried them all and to my surprise, there was not one which was unpleasant. So now we have received the line of products here at SkinStore.com including the fragrances, which I could not be more ecstatic about!

You know that feeling when you use a product and you get lost in the scent or experience that it brings?! You close your eyes and picture yourself in the most relaxing, happiest place you can think of. If you enjoy products that smell great then make a date with Diana B.
I love all of the products in my daily regimen which keep my skin under control and beautiful but sometimes it’s nice to go outside the norm and try something different. What a wonderful way to escape with some very unique shower gels, sugar scrubs, and body lotions. I had the chance to try one of the scrubs out for myself and it was delicious. It smelled wonderful, and had my skin feeling quite amazing afterwards. I pictured myself on a tropical vacation or even a candy shop except it was one that I wouldn’t be getting a tooth ache from! The scrub I tried was the Peach Fangipani Sugar Scrub and was suitable for even my sensitive skin. The other scrubs available offer to help improve the elasticity, brighten the skin and even offer antioxidant protection on top of their exfoliating properties. If you don’t like using scrubs, then you should try one of the bath gels. They are silky and can either be used alone in your shower or mixed in the tub for a frothy bubble bath. They can even been used as a shaving gel!
To finish off your ultimate sensory experience, try one of the body lotions the line has to offer. They are ultra smooth, contain a high amount of natural minerals to nourish the skin with and will help bring your skin back to life. Not to mention they smell just as great as the bath products! So if you are looking for a little something extra to sweeten up your day, these goodies would be a great fix.

Has Thanksgiving dinner taken a toll on your figure? Feeling guilty for going back for seconds or maybe even thirds? If your bum is not quite as perky and round as it used to be, we’ve got a few tips to whip your butt back into shape before New Years Eve rolls around.
First of all, there’s no magical lotion or potion that can give you a perfect derrière with no exercise or dieting involved. Everything in life worth having takes some effort to achieve. Same goes for your tush! Products can help smooth and firm the skin, but not the actual shape and size. Using a stimulating product like Bliss Fat Girl Sleep with potent ingredients that stimulate lymphatic drainage is helpful to reduce the appearance of dimpled skin. This product also has moisturizers that smooth and firm the skin.
To see dramatic results, sweat and modifications to your diet are essential. Eating healthy, well balanced meals will benefit not only your booty, but your overall health. Here are a few key exercises that will help create that perky, round shape you’re looking for.
Bent-Knee Deadlift: (Repeat 3 sets of 15)
Stand with feet shoulder width apart, holding a 5 pound weight in each hand at inner thighs. Bend knees to a shallow squat (about 30 degrees). Keeping your back straight, lower the weights toward the ground, squeeze glutes and slowly stand up. Repeat.
Single Leg Bridge: (Repeat 3 sets of 15)
Lie with your back on the floor and place your feet hip width apart on a couch or bench, knees bent 70 to 90 degrees. Extend left leg, keeping your toes pointed. Press into your right foot and lift hips toward the ceiling. Repeat on opposite side.
Lateral Step Extension (Repeat 3 sets of 15)
Stand with your right side facing a step bench, holding a 5 pound weight in each hand in front of your thighs. Step up sideways onto the bench with your right foot, then lift your left leg 45 degrees to the side, toes pointed. Hold for 3 counts. Step down and repeat. Switch sides.
Stay consistent with the booty camp routine and you’ll see results in no time!
