TMG Faves: Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion…

Just as skincare for the face transitions for warmer weather so should body care.  I love how heavier lotions and creams make my skin feel BUT when it’s 100 degrees outside, sometimes it can be a bit much.   Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion [$10.00 for 6 oz. or $22.00 for 16 oz.], is a totally greaseless lotion that moisturizes enriched with vitamin A,  peanut oil and beeswax. Extremely light feeling, this lotion also has a very beachy and tropical scent (but not sweet).  Another plus is the subtle shimmer, which is quite noticeable but not in a glittery way (it makes a tan look AMAZING).

The lotion feels weightless and absorbs into skin quickly – so much so that you can get dressed fairly quickly without fear of it getting on your clothes.  Beauty junkies beware….once you try one Mario Badescu product, there is no turning back.  You will quickly become obsessed like me!! Some of my other favorites are the Vitamin C SerumSeaweed Cleansing Lotion and Enzyme Cleansing Gel.  The great thing about the products is the formulations AND the price…plus they have been around since the 60’s keeping skin pretty.

Stay Pretty!!

    I’m always looking for summery lotions that are not greasy. Thanks for the great tips! Does Mario Badescu make one that adds color like self tanner? Also, where can I find these products to try on? Thanks again!

    Hey Adriana! This one does not have a self tanner in it, it’s just a moisturizer – they do have sun care products though. You can buy them online or they have a store locator too
