Summer Skin Savers — Part 2

During summer, we show more skin so we have lots of preparing to do!  From shaving, to moisturizing, to using sunscreen our skin receives a lot of prep to look good!

Here are products I have received for my honest review.  They may get your skin looking it’s very best!

Schick Hydro Silk®

This spring/summer let Schick Hydro Silk help you prepare for any adventure.

This spring Schick Hydro Silk has launched a new line of disposable razors to ensure you receive the “highest performance” women’s disposable yet! The unique Schick Hydro Silk Disposables ($12.99 USD) razors deliver an experience far beyond just an incredibly close shave, and actually care for the skin by helping to replenish moisture shaving can take away.

If you are one of the 20% who prefer to only use a refillable razor, try the new Limited Edition Schick Hydro Silk Razor ($11.99 USD). In a vibrant Caribbean Green Handle, this razor features a new ventilated travel cover to protect the cartridge for when you’re on the go.

What I think:  I love these razors.  Most moisturizing shavers are bulky and don’t give a close shave.  These do.  And the shape of the razor head lets you get in close.

Ribbons of aloe soothe and refresh the skin from the effects of the sun, while silk protein shea butter ribbons of lotion provide incredible moisturization that leaves skin feeling hydrated, healthy and radiant.

What I think:  After the sun, be sure to moisturize. This one smells amazing and is made to take care of sun-ravaged skin. Also great for after sunless tanning.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Rosehip

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Rosehip ($9.99 USD) – NEW! Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil, Rosehip, is an advanced multi-purpose skin perfection product that can be used all over the body and face.  This preservative-free, phthalate free, lightweight formula contains an exclusive blend of key ingredients formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged skin, uneven skin tone, aging skin and fine lines and wrinkles.  Skin looks and feels instantly soft and smooth with this unique, non-greasy, non-staining formula.

What I think:  Sometimes a lotion doesn’t give the kind of moisture your skin may crave.  This oil is perfect for very dry skin, or skin with stretchmarks or scars.  It is also great for after sun or self tanning.  Remember, moisturizing the skin will make your tan (real or fake) last longer.
