Brighter skin

For a while now I've been looking for a body product that will brighten and remove any dead skin cells from my body. Products with AHAs even out skin tone and leave a brighter appearance, something that I was looking for. I have therefore been trying out products that claim to reveal newer skin.

I have had the Clarins one (Renew Plus Body Serum) for a while and like this as its a very lightweight consistency and is easily absorbed into my skin. I feel its very effective and leaves my skin looking more luminous. One downside though is the price. Another product at a similar price is the Clinique Turnaround Smoothing Body Cream. This is slightly thicker in texture and I feel is slightly more moisturising, which is good as summer is coming and no one wants to reveal dry skin, not a good look. It definately evens out my skin tone and my skin felt very smooth. On the hunt for a cheaper alternative I found the Palmers Cocoa Butter Skin Smoothing Lotion. As a lover of the original cocoa butter by Palmers I was keen to give this a shot. I love it, it feels light, yet moisturising and evens out my skintone. It brightens the skin and removes any dead skin cells. I think its the perfect mixture between moisture and brightening my skin tone. A new love for me and brighter, smoother skin for my body.
