Getting Your Body Summer Ready

Now wasn't that a gorgeous bank holiday weekend! If you don't live in the UK, we just had a gorgeous warm weekend, quite surprising for spring. It got me thinking that now it is getting warmer, we can all start getting our limbs out! I posted on my Instagram about two of my favourite moisturisers and getting ready for summer, but I thought it would be good to write up a post in more detail. I am quite picky about what body products I use, as I am not a fan of heavy-feeling products. I have also included a great product for giving your legs the look of being on holiday, all in one bottle. 

Getting Your Body Summer Ready
For those who don't like body creams or lotions, or you want a product that is quick to use then The Body Shop Body Sorbets are a perfect choice. They blend into the skin really quickly, and don't leave a sticky feeling when you get dressed or get into bed. 

Sadly this is not available in all the ranges, and that includes my previous favourite! I first tried the body sorbets in the Fuji Green Tea scent, it worked quite nicely as a sort of after sun on holiday. That scent was discontinued and now I like the Moringa, a nice fresh floral scent.

If I fancy using another body moisturiser, I will use the Pretty As A Peach body lotion from The Body Shop. This was given to me as a gift from my neighbours when I was looking after their cats. I am not always a fan of fruit-scented body lotions, it often makes me feel all sticky.

However, this has a gorgeous light scent, and despite it being packed in with many skin-loving and moisturing ingredients, it sinks in almost as quickly as the body sorbet. 

If you are not an expert with fake tan, but still want a bit of a 'summer glow', the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is a great option for a quick fix. I've been using it for years. It is a spray-can formula, so you might not want to use it around white sheets! Obviously, you can use this on other parts of the body, I have not used it on the face though. 

I prefer to use it mixed in with a body lotion, I just find it gives a soft finish - also great if you are using it for the first time. It also comes in a few different shades, so even if you are on the pale side, you should be able to get a nice warm glow!

What are your favourite body products to use in the warmer months?
