How To Prep For Smooth Legs This Summer #SummerizeYourLegs #shop #cbias

 I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. All opinions are honest and are my own.

What says summer beauty more than swishing skirts with flats or cute capris with sandals? I love to feel feminine and pretty in the summertime and one way to do that is to prep for smooth legs with a few essential moisturizing products. 

The Schick Hydro Silk is one of the best razors for shaving legs smooth. It's got built in moisturizers and I love how easy it is to use. I was really impressed by how quickly I could shave without cutting myself. That's high on my priority list because, honestly, it's really one of my least favorite parts of my beauty regimen! 

Another way to easily moisturize my legs while shaving is to use a good, hydrating, shave gel. I've been using Skintimate for years and have tried most of the scents they offer. Most recently, I bought Mandarin Burst at Walmart. Using these fruity-scented products just immediately speaks summer to me!

Ever since high school, I've loved to treat myself to fun beauty supplies. "Fancy shavers" (my 14-year-old self's word for anything that cost over three bucks) and shave gel are always on the list. When I was growing up, our closest Walmart was 45 minutes away---over a mountain pass. So, we didn't get over there very often. I'd love to stock up on Schick razors because there were several in the pack, and I'd also love it when Skintimate had their shave gel in a two-pack for a lower price. It's the little things, y'all.

Once my legs are smooth and moisturized, it's time to get my tan on. Ok, family and friends, stop laughing. Seriously! Alright, true confession, I'm super white---and when I go out without my sunblock, I'm super red. Super fast. (Check out Walmart's cute sun lotion display---I love the little grass hut umbrella!)

Time for true confession number two: these are Lynzie's legs. But---I have a good reason for putting hers here and not mine. Growing up, my mom could have been the poster girl for Hawaiian Tropic. She always had a gorgeous tan and any time the sun was out, she was outside working on it. As a teen, I always wanted that same tan as my mom, but I didn't understand the art of achieving it. More than the fact that she is naturally a lot darker than me, she also knew how to start with a little and move up to more, to keep herself from burning. Moral of the story: you can't start out with SPF 4. So, I'm teaching Lynzie to always use a higher-end SPF lotion to make sure to protect her skin while she's working on her stellar tan.

Another thing I've been teaching Lynzie is how to look for the good deals and tips! All You is one of my favorite magazines and it's always full of great ideas, recipes and coupons to inspire and make our lives easier. Make sure to look for the Prep, Shave, Protect ad with coupons for Schick and Skintimate products.
