Whats Your Favorite Feel Sexier Product?

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Nothing makes me feel sexier than having really, really smooth skin. Well, having smooth skin, sipping anejo tequila on the rocks and wearing either a low-cut blouse or a short skirt, though not both at the same time. Oh, and the ten pounds I just lost.

Of all of the above, smooth skin is actually the cheapest and easiest to get. And I can tell you how in just two words: exfoliating gloves.

A few years ago, I saw exfoliating gloves in my local drugstore and bought them, took them home and tried them. I was really impressed with the results, particularly on my legs, arms and yes, on my ass. And I’ve been using them ever since. One of my friends, who came to visit me and tried the gloves when she was using my shower, was actually offended that I hadn’t shared this knowledge with her.

The gloves are inexpensive (less than $10.00 a pair), are easy to use (one size fits all) and produce really phenomenal results. The gloves work by removing the surface layer of dead cells so that the new, pretty skin is exposed. I wouldn’t use them on sensitive skin like your face or neck because they are too abrading. And I’ve found that I get the best results by using them with either a moisturizing soap or body wash and then applying lotion right after my shower.

I use the gloves a couple of times a week, especially on date night with my husband. And he notices. Which leads to more physical contact because who doesn’t want to touch smooth skin? And more physical contact leads to…. Well, you see where I’m going with this.

So, I’ve shared with you my favorite make-me-feel-sexier product. But I can always use a little more sexiness in my life. Can’t you?

What’s your favorite make-you-feel-sexier product? Don’t hold out on me!

I love exfoliating gloves! Smooth skin can definitely lead to... what you just implied in your post, haha! So that's also in my list of things that make me feel sexy. But also, I love love loooove those body sprays with light sexy fragrance that you can use right after a shower. They make me feel instantly sexy, and my guy notices and once again it leads to... you know :)

Your lipsticks such as reds or light pinks especially if they complement your skin tone. Lips that are smoooth and colorful are inviting to a male.

My favorite thing to make me feel sexier is anything that exfoliates. From facial scrub to a scrub brush to lotion. I feel so much more apealing when I have smooth skin. :)

I Love exfoliating, too! I agree about how sexy it makes you feel. However, I usually just use a washcloth and a body scrub. But I might have to try the glove now that I read this article!

high heels of any kind! I am short but have long athletic legs for my body and I think it's one of my best features. High heels help me accentuate them whether I'm wearing a skirt, shorts, or pants and I can't help but feel sexy.

I actually have a couple favorite products. I love bath fizzes, and when my husband and I went away for our anniversary I bought "Sex Bomb" bath fizz from LUSH cosmetics. That was one amazing bath! I love that it has moisturizers and aromatherapy oils, it also turned the water pink which was fun. I would have to say that the product I use when I feel especially un-sexy is bath n body works foam burst soap. I use it instead of shaving cream and it is fabulous. Very moisturizing and helps to get a great shave!

I could not live without my exfoliating gloves!!! Try this...after using your gloves, before getting out of the shower, lather baby oil everywhere, lightly rinse and towel dry. Sexy skin!

I think that when I have fuzzy socks and some nice lotion can really make my feet feel good!

It always makes me feel so awesome when I take the time to do a full overhaul. I mean... 1) actually using shaving cream instead of scraping off whatever hairs I can get while in the shower... 2) using my Lumina Finishing Touch and a really great pair of Tweezerman tweezers from e.l.f. to get my eyebrows in shape and get rid of any other unwanted facial hairs... 3) using a really great exfoliator or at-home microdermabrasion system (I also exfoliate my neck and shoulders) followed by a simple toner but super nice moisturizer to make my face silky smooth... and Finally 4) putting on something very feminine and silky and usually pink that feels good to the touch and against my skin.
