Spring has finally arrived and it’s time to show off those beautiful legs! I’ve been hitting the gym like crazy, paying special attention to my legs so that when I step out in my shorts and mini skirts I’ll be the center of attention.
You can imagine my dismay this past weekend when I attempted to wear a dress and realized my wonderfully toned legs were in desperate need of sun. Ladies, it’s never cute to walk outside looking like a color wheel simply because you’re not evenly tanned.
I’m a sucker for bronzed-kissed skin. After my weekend dress disaster and seeing Rihanna rock her bronzed legs, I knew it was time I pull out some of the Blinging Beauty team’s Top 5 leg bronzers and get my leg life right.
Check out a few ways to achieve this bronzed leg look:
1. Schick Hydro Silk Razor
Legs just can’t be great if they aren’t smooth. If you want to avoid the irritation and cuts that sometimes come with shaving, try the Schick Hydro Silk Razor. The water-activated moisture serum fights against the moisture loss that often comes with shaving while the Skin Guard technology allows for a close shave while preventing irritation. For just $10 you can’t beat the wonderful benefits of this razor.
2. St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion
This salon-inspired formula delivers a deep tan with long lasting color. Infused with aloe vera and aroma guard, you won’t have the tell-tale scent that accompanies most self-tanning lotions. Priced at $30 this may stretch your budget, but the lack of parabens and sulfates make it well worth the splurge.
3. tarte glam gams bronzing leg stick
If you don’t feel like dealing with lotions, this bronzing leg stick from tarte is perfect for you. Not only will you not have to worry about even application and making a mess, the glam gams bronzing leg stick is made with a t5 super fruit complex that is sure to treat your legs right. This bronzer also has a price tag of $30 but with these benefits you just can’t beat the price.

This body bronzing oil includes the wonderful properties from coconut oil and mangosteen extract that help to protect the skin and provide anti-oxidants. Not only does this oil provide a bronzed glow, the oil also works to moisturize skin in need of hydration. As an added bonus, the Mangosteen extract absorbs quickly and doesn’t transfer so you won’t have to worry about staining your clothes. With all these great benefits, it’s no surprise that you’ll pay $35 for the Too Faced Royal Oil Coconut Oil Body Bronzer.
