I often thought that all body lotions were built the same, bulky bottles, greasy to the touch, and tacky on clothes. Unlike the joy of exploring packaging and aesthetics of skincare products, shopping for lotions was something I did on auto pilot. Leave it to the clean skincare brand Summer Fridays to launch a brand-new product that gave me a reason to care about what lotion was going on my body. Earlier this month the cult favorite skincare line launched a new body lotion titled Summer Skin. After using this beautifully packaged product with its subtle coconut scent, I thank Summer Fridays for inviting me to explore the beauty of a good body lotion.
The best inventions are often born out of a necessity and Summer Skin is a prime example of a product born to remedy an everyday issue. Summer Skin body lotion is a unique product as it’s the brand’s first step into the realm of head-to-toe beauty. I’d never cared to overthink about body lotions since they never felt as luxurious as facial skincare products. But upon first use of Summer Skin this body lotion distinguishes itself for feeling expensive. From the soft tube packaging, to the soft tan coloring of the bottle, the Summer Fridays body lotion is a welcome part to any Instagrammers aesthetic flat lay.
Did Summer Fridays Make the Best Smelling Body Lotion? 2021 Beauty Review: Summer Skin Body Lotion
Beyond simply looking gorgeous, the brand-new Summer Fridays body lotion has a rich formula that makes me excited to put it on. The first time I applied Summer Skin I began with my forearm. After the body lotion melted into my skin, I proceeded to apply it to my other arm and both legs. Summer Skin is different from any body lotion I’ve tried in that it breaks the mold of feeling greasy, being tacky, and having an overbearing scent.
Similar to its sister products, this brand-new Summer Fridays product is vegan and cruelty free. What distinguishes Summer Skin body lotion is its purpose of being used throughout the body. Thanks to the products ingredients including the plant derived butters of cocoa butter and shea butter, Summer Skin is highly emollient. While the beauty of a skincare routine is the time it takes, I welcome this body lotion in taking the time out of getting ready. Even though I’m not racing to get to work or events now I enjoying feeling complete with a matte finish to my lotion.
Now we answer the question at hand: Did Summer Fridays brand new Summer Skin body lotion just become the best smelling body lotion of 2021? Like all beauty products, the answer is subjective. While my face’s skin type is oily combination, the skin on my arms and legs is often dry. Whether it be from waking up in cold LA mornings for Zoom meetings or doing workouts outside, my skin always needs from tender love and care. Summer Skin is appropriately named because thanks to its subtle coconut scent your transported to memories by a beachside.
If you’re curious about Summer Skin, I would recommend this product if you want a body lotion that is not afraid to offer a subtle scent and leave a matte finish. Some people may not want this – some may want that feeling we correlate with greasy as being hydrated – again skincare and beauty is all personal. And in my personal opinion, the brand-new Summer Fridays body lotion is a new favorite that I’m already excited to apply again tomorrow morning.
