You knew it was coming, didn't you. As if the name wasn't enough of a giveaway, it's not summer without our Summer Shine Body Lotion. At least not here at Mario Badescu. We believe beauty shines from within.
As for achieving that luminous, sun-kissed glow? Your skin might need just a little help for a boost of radiance. We won’t tell it was from a bottle – it was all you.
It's our secret to sun-kissed skin for glow in all the right places.
Dab it on, rub it in. Your legs, your collarbones, your shoulders. Or everywhere. A little goes a long way - it’s shimmer for the sophisticate, because looking like a disco ball was so 80s.
Don't just take it from me, though. Back in May (time flies!) we participated in the blogger event at The Makeup Show NYC and gave the attending bloggers a bottle of our beloved Summer Shine Lotion. Here's what they said:
"It smells really good though—like a slight hint of cocoa butter and almond. The formula is lightweight–it moisturizes well without feeling heavy which is a perfect combo for summer. And get this—yesterday I also got caught in a severe thunderstorm with crazy winds. I got drenched but even after that most of the lotion still remained and I didn’t get that funny moisturizer mixed with water feeling on my skin... The smell has me hooked though..."

"I'm usually all about quality not quantity, but in this particular case, I can't quite squeeze enough out of the bottle! ... this lotion is a true summer essential making your skin super soft and smooth without clogging pores. Amen! The lotion is light enough for everyday use, but adds just the right amount of glam for special occasions."
- Julie & Lauren of "Born & Bread"
"Beauty junkies beware….once you try one Mario Badescu product, there is no turning back. You will quickly become obsessed like me!! Some of my other favorites are the Vitamin C Serum, Seaweed Cleansing Lotion and Enzyme Cleansing Gel. The great thing about the products is the formulations AND the price…plus they have been around since the 60′s keeping skin pretty."

"This light lotion goes on and adds a gentle touch of gleam and sparkle to your skin that is perfect for us tan and pale-complected girls."
- Kelly Gould of "Gouldylox Reviews"
"It's perfect for a nice highlight to warmer weather's bare skin and also for doing some leg contour."
"I always feel a little bit sexier when I add a little body shimmer around my decolette area, and my legs. But, during the daytime I don't want to use anything too noticeable. Step in Mario Badescu's Summer Shine Lotion. I love this stuff. It gives my skin a subtle gorgeous shimmer. Nothing too cray cray for the daytime. It's really moisturizing too because it contains peanut oil, and it has a slight scent of coconut. Perfect for the daytime if you want to give your skin an extra vava voom factor. I wouldn't use this during the night though, just because I like a lot of VAVAVoom in the evening. But during the day, this is what I'm grabbing."
