Obsession Du Jour: Prtty Peaushun Body Lotion 7.9.12

First of all, I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing 4th of July and Holiday weekend. I know, I sure did. I spent my time out on the North Shore of Long Island at my families home. Hot sunny days in a cool pool with family. Nothing beats it.

Now, onto more exciting things, my newest and most fabulous beauty find. I have been looking forward to putting up this review all weekend. I had to try it out first though, of course.

What the heck is it you might be thinking? Looks like those gel vitamin drinks you can pick up at GNC right? But, alas, it is not. It is the most amazing and secret body lotion. I dont know if you can only classify it as a body lotion though. Molly Sims calls it her 'Secret Weapon'. 

I first found out about this while doing my obsessing over Tracey Anderson (If you dont know who she is, you should! She is a trainer out in LA who is adorable and her work outs kick major booty). I was watching one of her backstage videos and her makeup artist was putting this on her. I did a little background research and I found out it was called 'Prtty Peaushun'- pronounced I assume, Pretty Potion. They have a Prtty Peaushun website you can order on and yes that is Tracey Anderson's bod featured on the website. Amazing right? Anyway, I found a website where they sell it for 20% off here called Payless Beauty! with the code PT20, so I would order from there! I did!

Now onto the actual review, this is a very light, quick absorbing, completely not greasy lotions for your body. I haven't yet tried it on my face, but I will. I am a daredevil like that. This stuff is AMAZING. It does not have any sparkle but very very refined micro shimmer to give you a glowing look. You do not even see the shimmer when you are in person, just looks like your skin is HIGHLY moisturized, something I always strive for. There is a light citrus-y scent that fades within minutes of applying. I ordered the lotion in medium because I have a tan, but it is not really colored, I would describe it as a peach. I think it is a very universal color. Anyone can use it, tan or not. It really is a 'perfecting lotion', it minimized any color discolorations and I know this sounds ludicrous but makes your legs look more in shape. I know, I know! Trust me though.

See some photo's of the product itself and swatched on my arm below.

Medium Color

Interesting nozzle where the product dispenses from- I quite like it.

Up close and personal with my arm- Prtty Peaushun rubbed in

A little further away, no sparkle can be seen in person, just a glow!

It retails on the Prtty Peaushun site for $36 but I found it for $28 on Payless beauty and with a 20% off code comes to around $22 so its not a bad deal. It comes with a decent amount, remember this really isn't a moisturizer, more of an 'accent cream' so you shouldn't go through it TOO quickly. The only thing I could possibly compare it to is BECCA's highlighter in pearl, which is a bit thicker and more concentrated as it is a true highlighter, this is not. This is light and more liquid-y and less shimmer-y. This so far can not be duped for me.

Best of all, it is 100% cruelty free, leaping bunny certified and 99.7% natural.

I think we have a winner here! I just ordered a 2nd package of it.

Will you try this out? Let me know!



  1. I just ordered this! I'm leaving for Hawaii in a week and this will be PERFECT for nights! Thanks so much for your review Dara! :)


  2. the first thing when i thought of when i saw it was those vitamin drinks haha. but this is really cool. it leaves a nice glow. i bet it would look great on legs too.


  3. Have you tried the Hard Candy Glow all the way 24k infused Luminizer? I have the pink one and it gives an amazing glow, the shimmer is very refined and just goes on smooth.
