I find that now that I am wearing short-sleeved shirts and capri’s and showing more skin, I really want it looking and feeling it’s best. So I have been using more moisturizing and fresh-smelling products than in winter.
The following products not only make your skin smell and feel great, but look good, too. Now all I need is a little self tanner and I will be ready for summer!
Whish Body Oil in Blueberry ($28 USD) — Whish Body Oil works to restore your skin’s natural luminance, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and soothing inflamed skin while providing you with long-lasting moisture. Its blend of sesame and sunflower seed oils moisturize, olive leaf extract and jojoba oil soothe and Dermaxyl is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines while enhancing your skin’s overall luminance.
What I think: I love this oil because it sinks into the skin and doesn’t leave it greasy. It is perfect to use after a shower when skin is still damp because it locks in the moisture and skin is soft all day. The blueberry scent is nice, but it also comes in Almond, Coconut, Lavender, Lemongrass and Pomegranate.
