For most women, having beautifully hydrated skin is always important. However, when holiday parties start calling, a typical moisturizer may not be enough to give you that show stealing glow. That’s why I have absolutely fallen in love with Burts Bees Radiance Body Lotion
Infused with royal jelly, sunflower oils and aloe, this body lotion gives just the right amount of moisture to skin without leaving a greasy residue. The lotion also contains natural mica for gorgeous glow factor.
To be honest, I bought this lotion because I had become lazy with my spray tanning routine. I didn’t want to be unnaturally dark, yet I still wanted my skin to have a glow about it. I had tried other lotions in the past that were said to have a “glow” to them, but sadly they were all infused with some type of glitter leaving me look as if I’d just spent one too many nights at a gentlemen’s club in Vegas. Finally, at the end of my rope, I gave Burts Bees Radiance Body Lotion a shot. I have always been a fan of their other products, so fingers crossed I slathered it on.
First I should warn you, the consistency of this lotion is much thinner than other lotions and a little goes a long way. I’d suggest you start with about a dime size and build from there. At first the lotion does appear a bit white or silvery; however, once it is absorbed into the skin, you are left with perfectly moisturized skin and a hint of beautiful, but natural looking sparkle. The scent is a bit strong at first, but only lasts a few minutes.
For those who wish to contain their sparkle to only certain body parts, you can also use the lotion much like a highlighter, applying to front of legs, arms, décolleté, and collar bones. No matter how you choose to get your sparkle on, at only $9.00/bottle, this lotion is a one stop shop to gorgeous. For this holiday season, I recommend you don’t leave home without it!
