So, here’s a bit of a confession, and I only call it a confession because you, dear readers, don’t know me that well, and my boyfriend is probably the only other one who knows this, but…I can be a grizzly beast in the winter.
Bodily speaking, I mean. Body hair, specifically. Body hair has become less and less taboo as the years have passed, and I find myself caring less and less in the winter.
I’m a habitual bikini waxer, but other than that, in the wintertime, it just makes things worse. I shave my legs, and my skin just dries out more. Who needs that?
Well, despite my biggest excuses, I can’t resist trying a new body lotion, and if I’m going to try a new lotion, I want to feel like a baby dolphin when I do it. 🙂
Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion is part of the brand’s Radiance family of products, which consists of an entire line of skin care. formulated with royal jelly, as well as sunflower oil and aloe, which contribute to the amazing scent.
After a very long shower and the death of one very strong, very brave razor, my legs were once again hairless, and my body was ready to begin the testing. What I wasn’t ready for was how much I was going to sparkle! Radiance Body Lotion contains mica (a light reflecting mineral), and baby, does it reflect.
This lotion is serious business, and by serious I mean that even after washing my hands, I couldn’t get the shimmer to go away. The smell lasted throughout the night, and while I wasn’t complaining, I was just a little bit worried that I was going to get the shimmer on my sheets.
When I woke up, the mica had sunk into my skin enough that it wasn’t radiating off me. and my skin felt hydrated and silky soft.
Radiance Body Lotion will definitely be rotating into my circle of favorites (as you can see, I have quite a few), but I’m thinking that I might save it for when I want some extra pampering. While it’s not higher end, it leaves me feeling almost golden, glowing.
Do you have a favorite lotion? Does this one remind anyone else of the body shimmer sprays of yore?
