Since Summer is approaching I decided to compile a series of posts reviewing products that would be particularly appreciated during Spring and Summer. I’m also thinking about doing a guide in Fall- Winter as well. The first product I’m introducing is the highly popular, often-raved-about Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight body lotion*. When you read the glowing reviews and you check the product description, it’s safe to say that it’s hard to resist :
“Radiance conceals minor imperfections and enhances definition to create a sexy, slimmer silhouette. Infused with an innovative blend of natural plant extracts to lift, firm, tighten and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins, as well as minimizing bruising and sore muscles.”
Sounds like a dream product, isn’t it? While all of these minor skin imperfections are perfectly natural, it’s always nice to know that you can find a product that provides some coverage. Gluten-free, approved by PETA, with an outstanding formula (enriched in avocado, jojoba, camellia, grapefruit, green tea, rosemary, arnica and blue vervain), Prtty Peaushun seems to tick all the boxes for green enthusiasts. This is the travel size which contains “89ml” and if you’re going away on a trip, this will last you for a few weeks at least.
On the picture above you see a swatch of “Light”. This is how it looks like in reality.
“Light” is a fair shade with a slight yellow undertone, it perfectly matched the color of my arms, legs and decolletage. “Light” doesn’t provide any coverage, but imparts a stunning glow without the disco-ball effect. When I use it on my legs, I enjoy that it also gives a little moisture kick. I find myself with smooth and glowy legs at the same time.
Currently, I particularly enjoy using on the neck and decolletage, because the result is really natural. While Prtty assures that it works for the face as well, I preferred not to apply it as it’s quite rich. Texture-wise, it feels a bit “sticky” at first but once you massage it, the lotion is effortlessly absorbed, avoiding any risks of staining your outfit.
I do feel the need to insist on the fact that the shade “Light” will highlight and add some radiance, but is not meant to conceal minor imperfections – yours truly tried it on her stretchmarks, and couldn’t see a difference, aside from the pretty sheen of course.
Therefore, I’d suggest to pick the shades “Medium” “Dark” or “Deep” if you’re looking to even out the skin and blur any marks or bruises.

Since I discovered the magic of highlighters in makeup, I couldn’t be happier to find a product that would bring an enhancing glow to the body, while keeping it hydrated and smooth. Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight lotion compliments the skin. Thicker than a shimmery oil, the lotion provides a more polished and firm effect. The sheen gets evenly distributed accross the body and captures the light beautifully. While it’s not warm enough yet to leave the house with bare arms and/or legs, I know that if I want to look extra fancy and get that red-carpet glow, I’ll just have to squeeze out a dollop of this lotion.
Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight lotion (travel size) currently retails at 32Eur, and is available on Corponatura (worldwide shipping).
