Poolside Pampering

Aside from your summer read 50 Shades of Grey, what else do you bring along when you have an all day to spend by the swimming pool?

Mine includes a shimmery body moisturizer and any summer scent. I was gifted a Virgin Vie Go Hawaii Shimmer Body souffle five years ago and since then, I’ve been hooked to seeing my skin glitter under the sun. Good thing is I found a cheaper alternative with Victoria’s Secret  Candy Baby Body Glimmer Swirl Cream.It has ProVitamin B5 and Shea Butter to nourish skin. The cocoa coconut smell also makes your holiday or in my case staycation – exotic.

I also make it  a point to bring along whatever is my current favorite scent. I dab it on my wrist when resting after a good swim. I bury myself with the morning paper. Who wants to reek chlorine for the rest of a charming afternoon?

Finally, when all the fun stops (or when my son decides he is hungry yay!), we head back to our hotel room, order in-room dining service, then I take a quick shower. While my skin is still damp, I slather on body oil. I previously used Mango Beautifying Oil From The Body Shop but before I can replenish, my GlamBox For June arrived with new organic body oil from Bahrain. It is very nourishing on skin and non-greasy. The fruity scent gives the air of Caribbean — and even Hubby likes it a lot.

How about you? How do you keep your skin hydrated when going to the beach or swimming pool? What are your favorite summer scents?

    I just use sunblock lotion, any brand that’s available actually.. ^^ As for scents, I like wearing fruity ones to make my summer sweeter.. 🙂

  5. I never forget to bring sunscreen for the hair, face and body. I like the beach and being near the water but I hate the sun and what it does to the skin.

  6. The Candy Baby Body Glimmer looks very interesting! I’m sure it looks and smells good on the skin… wish it were available here.

    That VS Beauty Rush body glimmer cream sounds like a product that I would love to use too. I love shimmer, glimmer, etc! I’m a VS and Bath & Body Works gal so I love everything that they release in the market! =)

    A sunblock will do for me. “Glittering under the sun” – I love that! I imagined Edward Cullen sparkling under the ray of sun. hehehehe … For scents…hmmm..I prefer fruity and sweet scents.
