Feeling Pale and Blah?

Prtty Peaushun Review on barebeauty.com

January is the worst month; you’re fat and broke from the holidays, it’s cold and dark 24/7, and you’re paler than ever.  It’s just such a struggle.  And, if you’re 35.5 pregnant on top of that, you might be feeling even worse about yourself!  First world problems, I know.  Whenever I’m feeling this way, (like, every January) I tend to reach for Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion.  It’s not a self-tanner, it’s more of an imperfection-blurring, illuminating moisturizer.  Self tanner is great, but the effects are not immediate (at least if it’s of the clean variety), and it can look pretty obvious in the dead of winter, so if I get an invitation that requires bare legs in January, I slap this on and feel a little more confident.

Gwyneth Paltrow and every other celebrity with great-looking legs swears by this lotion.  It has subtle light-reflecting particles that minimize skin imperfections and create a flattering glow.  Limbs look slimmer and longer.  Plant extracts firm and tighten the skin.  It is not the *very* cleanest lotion out there, but it is 100% Paraben-free and Vegan, (ingredients listed below) and I feel fine about using it as long as it’s not on a daily basis.  This stuff WORKS and it is great for special events or just a night out when you plan on showing a little skin.  When I’m not tan, I use the Plain, but it comes in four other flattering shades as well.
