Whenever i go to mall i noticed some girls has really lubricated and shiny legs without any marks...
My bday is coming after five days. And I am planning to short black dress. But my legs r not so smooth and have some KPs. Is there any suggestion or way i can make my legs shiny glossy on my bday?
I am brown..so i am not sure about tanning but I guess If i'll use tanning on brown skin it'll make legs very dark though i am not as ive never done it Sad.
Please suggest how to achieve that shiny legs look.

You could try a baby oil gel. Cheap and works well if you have very dry skin.

There is a few d/s shimmer products such as Nivea shimmer lotion, Jergens that a touch of shimmer and a touch of colour. Your lucky you have colour so you don't need to worry about that. I have the Nivea and it is a goldish shimmer. The Nivea last until you wash it off.

A really nice product but more $$ is Nuxe. It is "multi usage dry oil golden shimmer". It looks very brown in the bottle; but isn't. Smells wonderful and leaves a very nice shimmer.

NUXE is great but I've also added a little of the Jane Iredale 24K gold dust to fav mousturiser and you get a great effect. Have a great birthday!

Exfoliate really well with a sugar or salt scrub before you shave, shave with a brand new razor, then coat your legs with body oil.

After shaving and exfoliating I use Arbonne NutriMin C RE9 Reactivating body serum followed by NutriMin C RE9 Refinsh hyrdrating body lotion. The results are great. Your legs glow and will stay soft all day. I signed up with Arbonne as an Independent Rep just for the discount. I've learned so much here and I'm happy to pass my disount along to anyone who would like to try their products. Just PM me.

The Nuxe golden shimmer oil is great!
As autumn said, it looks very brown in the bottle, but once you apply it on your body/leg it just leaves a shimmery sheen to it. And the smell is gorgeous too, lingers on for a whole day.
However, it is very expensive for a small bottle but if you only use it for when wearing clothes that reveal your limbs then its a good product to have round.

Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday!

If you are brown (so am I), then you don't need to colour your skin.

In general, inexpensive way to condition your skin, will be to massage olive oil before you take your shower/bath. Exfoliate (a washcloth would do) in the shower. After the shower/bath, moisturise with any body lotion (nivea body lotion is good). At night, you could use your body lotion before you go to bed. You would have soft and supple skin.

Fancy way - you could use decleor's creme exfoliante (it's very good) before you take the shower and rinse off. After the shower, I use Decleor's body oil & cream. At night, I use their body balm.

Exfoliate really well using a body scrub, then shave really well, then moisturize really well using a hydrating lotion or dry oil. I know it sounds so basic and obvious, but that's what I do and I have really smooth, shiny legs that my bf comments on all the time (esp when I'm wearing dresses). Oh, and my legs are white!

After shaving I use the body shop body butter, and then spray on the Body shop's oil spray right. This gives me those gorgeous glamazon legs. Then for the evening I dust on a bit of body shimmer.
