It's Legs Out Season. Are Your Gams Ready?

It's Legs Out Season. Are Your Gams Ready?

I'm a Soap & Glory superfan, and I'm thrilled that more and more of the Brit brand is showing up Stateside. I've already mentioned a plethora of their products that I'm hopelessly devoted to, and now that we're approaching Legs Out Season, it's time to introduce you to another. The Righteous Butter Instant Sunkissed Tint Body Lotion is the perfect remedy for sun-starved gams like my own. I stay away from the sun, but my legs are naturally about two shades lighter than the rest of my body. My sun-free solution has previously been to use gradual tan lotions on my lower limbs, but there are downsides to that. You can get odd orange patches, you have to do a zombie shuffle around the house while it dries, and the chemical that activates the tan has a very distinct smell. My mom once bought this bronzing body oil from NARS and said it was amazing, but I don't have NARS money, especially when it's for a product that I'm going to slather over half my body and then just wash off at the end of the day (but I don't doubt that it's am-ah-zing). It seemed to me every brand making the product I wanted also wanted me to spend a small fortune on it. And listen, I've got gams. There's a fair bit of surface area to cover, and I'm not about to spend $20 an ounce doing it. The heavenly angels at Soap & Glory came to my (and all my pale legged pals') rescue. Like I've said before, The Righteous Butter is a fantastic body butter and the scent is addictive. This shimmer lotion is that body butter, with added bronzing qualities, a slight tropical twist on the Original Pink scent, and all in a convenient, no-mess tube. I truly never expose my legs without using this lotion on them first. There's no chemical smell like with tanning lotions, and no worries about staining my sheets, because at the end of the day it all showers right off.

If you're looking to truly make yourself look tan, then stick with self-tanners, but if you're just looking to make your legs match the rest of your body and look slightly less vampiric in their pallor, this is the perfect solution.
