Get Great Legs For Summer

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. #MySummerLook

I am extremely excited about Summer being just around the corner.  I am in Florida so it has been pretty warm lately and I have already begun taking part in summertime activities.  The scariest thing about moving from Spring to Summer is baring our legs for the first time in MONTHS.  If you are anything like me, you let your legs go a tiny bit when they are completely covered for so long.  I know that Spring has warmer months but if I am wearing anything other than pants in the Spring it is a maxi-dress and those show zero leg!  I have put together a kit that will help you achieve great legs to kick off the Summer!summer ready legs

One of my favorite beauty destinations is Target, and I frequent the store regularly.  Seriously, ask the employees.  They are so organized and everything is so easy to find!  I LOVE the end cap I found that is clearly marked Summer Play!  There are a ton of great products to choose from to prep for bare legs.

#MySummerLook Leg Kit

{one} Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive

{two} Skintimate Sensitive Shave Gel

{three} Banana Boat Sport Coolzone Spray SPF

{four} Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30

{five} Sally Hansen Nail Polish

The first step in the process is getting your legs smooth and silky.  Using the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive and Skintimate Sensitive Shave Gel spend extra time (5-10 minutes) to get a really close, thorough shave.  These two products are perfect for that.  The razor has 5 curve-sensing blades and the shave gel is extremely hydrating.  The lotionized formula contains vitamin e and the gel, once rubbed in, turns into a thick, creamy lather.  These two products are a perfect pairing.


Now that your legs are nice and smooth you are going to need SPF.  When I am lounging by the pool or camped out on the beach I like to use the extra moisturizing Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30.  I have had COUNTLESS bottles of this throughout the years and actually reviewed it previously here so no need to go into all the details.  Just know my husband and son LOVE it as much as I do.

When I am baring my legs while being active (hiking, running, playing with the kids in the backyard) I like to use the Banana Boat Sport Coolzone Spray SPF 50.  It is a continuous sunscreen spray that cools while and refreshes on contact.  It sprays on clear which is absolutely necessary to keep your legs looking flawless.  We don’t want people to SEE our sunscreen, do we?  It also has a nice scent!banana boat

After you have all of this done the next thing those gorgeous legs are leading to is your feet!  Give yourself a very long, very thorough pedicure.  You can go somewhere if you like but I find it really relaxing doing my own toes.  And I love to customize them during the summer to match whatever I am wearing or try out new trends.  Sally Hansen always has me covered with the latest trends, formulas and shades that I am lusting after.  I love that the entire brand is so affordable and is one of the best brands I have come across.  You can tell by the first picture that I have an extreme love affair with her polishes.  This isn’t even half of what I own from the brand!  I may do a fun nail post soon showing you some easy nail art.  Stay tuned for that.  For #mysummerlook I chose to use White On with the Big Matte Top Coat.  I love white nails during the warmer months because it looks so clean and crisp so I decided to try it out on my feet!  :)

I hope that you found this kit helpful.  I am loving the way my legs look and feel since I went through the process to summer-ize my legs! Silky legs and smooth legs are pretty legs! <3
