When your special day arrives you want to feel like a princess, from the dress, to the shoes, from the makeup to the hair, and not forgetting about your skin. And whilst care and preparation may go into the face with skincare, sometimes the body skincare can get a little overlooked. Depending on your dress type you may be showing that little bit extra skin than you would normally – maybe your back, shoulders, arms or declotage, wherever your skin may show it’s sure to be noticed and photographed. Taking care of your body skin aswell as your facial skin all goes into helping you look and feel your very best on your Wedding Day. Many Brides want that radiant glow to shine through from the inside to the outside, from top to toe and there are many skincare products that can help you on your way to that beautiful glowing radiant skin.
Bridal: One product I have been using over the past month has been this gorgeous body butter from Pacifica, I applied it for the first time after a shower before an evening out and it wasn’t long before I had several compliments about how glowing my skin looked. I realised that not only is this just a lovely body moisturiser to use before a night out or a special event, but that it would also make the perfect Bridal Body lotion because it gives such a lovely luminous finish on the skin, especially in a certain light. I can see this looking so radiant on the skin next to a bridal dress, and the packaging itself is beautiful, its one you certainly wouldn’t mind reaching for on your special day, as it has a luxurious feel to it. The cream has a shimmer without looking glittery on the skin and it also smells amazing.
Texture: One thing I would say is that this body butter is extremely thick in texture, when I first applied it I used way too much and it took me quite a while to blend it all in, so less is certainly more in the amount you need. You do need to work it into the skin quite abit, its not one that absorbs instantly, however once you have worked the lotion into your skin its not greasy or sticky in anyway, instead it just leaves the skin moisturised and silky soft with that delightful glow.
Ingredients & Fragrance: Coconut, argan oil, tamanu, sea algae and pearl mica are just some of the ingredients in this cruelty-free and vegan body butter. I personally think it has a slight Vanilla scent to it, you can also really smell the Coconut which I love, either way it is a lovely fragrance that gained me lots of compliments when I wore it, infact I was asked what perfume I was wearing, when it fact it wasn’t my perfume they could smell it was this lotion. I think you could really layer this with a complimentary perfume on your Wedding day that would create a lingering, lasting and beautiful scent.
