You’ve booked your flight, planned out what to bring in your carry-on and have your in-flight playlist ready to go… but is your skin ready for the beach? If you’re anything like me, the winter weather and short days have probably left your skin looking a bit lackluster.
No worries, Beautycounter has you covered with their lovely Shimmer & Shine Gift Set.
Before you head off on your travels, this gift set is going to be your go-to skin savior. The set includes Beatycounter’s Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa, the Lustro Shimmer Oil and the luxurious Sugar Body Scrub in Lemongrass all for a current sale price of $66. It’s everything you need to slough away your dry winter skin, keep it looking healthy and glowing, and give it a beautiful shimmering glow.
Plus, Beautycounter only offers products that are healthy for your body, so you know that you can trust the ingredients you’re putting on your skin… which just happens to be your biggest organ :)
Our Ingredient Selection Process ensures safer and cleaner products that work beautifully. This rigorous process handpicks the best ingredients. We never choose approximately 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals on our “Never List” when formulating our products.
In April I will be jetting off to Sarasota, FL, and will definitely be relying on these beauties beforehand to prepare my skin for the beach. I’m quite pale, and am struggling with dry skin due to harsh Vermont winter weather. Already I’ve been digging in to these products and am so happy with the results. I may need to pick up another set by the time April rolls around… which just so happens to be my birthday month.
Starting off with the Sugar Body Scrub in Lemongrass, you’re not going to have any problem gently buffing away dry skin while also providing a moisturizing finish. This scrub is one of the best I’ve used, and is gritty enough to work while also being gentle on my skin. This step is essential, especially if you’re going to be using a tan – my favorite is the St. Tropez Tanning Essentials Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse.
Immediately after hopping out of the shower, you’re going to love the Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa. This cream is thick without being too thick that it’s hard to apply and absorb. It’s not quite as thick as your typical body butter, and is a bit more like a heavy cream. The orange scent is very nice, but won’t be overpowering throughout the day. It adds a subtle scent to your skin that won’t battle with your perfume.
Whether you have dry skin like me, or need a glowing pick-me-up, the Body Butter is going to do the trick. It absorbs quickly and provides day-long hydration, especially in difficult areas like my elbows and knees.
Last but not least, use the Lustro Shimmer Oil to add a subtle bronze sheen to your skin. Whether you’re using this on your whole body in a swimsuit or on your décolleté for an evening look, it’s going to give you a flattering glow that’s perfect for any vacation. Plus, the moisturizing oil is going to leave your body soft and smooth, bringing the set full circle! The bottle included in the gift set is small enough to bring in your carry-on and will fit in the required bag, so I will definitely be bringing this along with me to Sarasota.
I highly recommend this gift set or any of the individual products from Beautycounter. It’s definitely a brand that I can stand behind, and so far I’ve been very impressed with the quality of their products. My skin looks so much better, and I’m a fan of all three products!
