The product: prtty peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion in Medium

Oh, Prtty Peaushun. There are so many things that I could say about you.

When it comes to this “skin tight body lotion,” you more or less know what you’re getting. A lightweight moisturizer, with a bit of colour, and a bit of luminizing. Sort of… a glowy tinted moisturizer, but for your legs.

Simple as it is, though, I’ve been prtty impressed (tee hee, prtty impressed) with Prtty Peaushun. As you might’ve noticed, I’m kind of ridiculously pasty-white, especially in the winter, and it’s a little frightening rather unforgiving on my chunky solidly built legs. So I gave the Medium shade a try, hoping that it would add a bit of colour…

And it didn’t disappoint.

Prtty Peaushun – Medium

Despite looking much too orange coming out of the package, Medium blended flawlessly into my skin. And it really does look like skin – so much so that I couldn’t tell where the line of demarcation between tinted/un-tinted was in the swatch. I ended up taking a q-tip of makeup remover though my swatch patch, just so you could tell what a difference it made (while still looking totally believable).

So, yeah. You could blend your own Prtty Peaushun, and it would have the two major benefits of (i) not being $36, and (ii) not having that “peaumelo” scent, but the one that Bethany Karlyn has produced? Pretty darn impressive.

(On that note: I am never, ever going to get tired of all of these “peau” jokes.)

Prtty Peaushun – Medium, blended in with a thin line of product removed (using makeup remover.)

As a brand, Prtty Peaushun gets two huge thumbs-up from me. Not only is the formula 92% natural and free of parabens, GMOs, phalates, synthetic dyes or fragrances, talc, or animal products, but it’s not tested on animals, and is packaged with as little material as possible. Plus, (and this is the part that I love), the spokesmodel of the brand is the teeny-tiny workout maven Tracy Anderson, not some ten-foot bones-and-skin glamazon.

(She’s shorter than I am! Nobody’s shorter than I am!)

(But, I kid you not, she could beat the crap out of me if she was blindfolded and had both her arms tied behind her back. Girl is fit.)

Surprisingly, I really like the packaging – it’s new, it’s unique, and it’ll allow you to get every last drop out of your Prtty Peaushun. It does take a bit of getting used to, but I haven’t had any accidents getting the product out, and it’s a lot sturdier than you’d expect. I’ve tugged on the plastic doohickey (totally a word; even my spell-check thinks so), squished, squeezed, and chucked, and I can safely say that it’s neither exploded nor sprung leaks.

Availability: you can order your prtty peaushun through their site, on Beauty.com, or at American Apparel. There’s also a store locator on the prtty peaushun site (as well as a list of more online shops to buy through), so it shouldn’t be too hard to come by! Or, perhaps, you can get yours right here…

    LOVE the idea of this! My legs are the whitest part of my body, but I don't really enjoy fake tanning so this sounds like a good product to try.

    p.s.
    I bet I'm shorter than you :)

    The packaging looks like those Asian juice packs. But the product looks fab.

    Wait….how tall are you? I could swear I was shorter than you. But, I did grow half an inch (half an inch is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT to me, okay. INCREDIBLY.)

    Oh, and by the way, if you want to know who wins the battle of wills in this house, it's me. My Eddie Bauer slippers came in (the ones that are supposed to be Christmas presents) today and I managed to get my paws on them before my mom could snatch them. I begged for two hours for my slippers and I won my very fuzzy and warm slippers (in exchange for my mom getting a calendar, but nonetheless, I got my slippers.) *evil cackle* Puppy eyes win every time.

    P.S. What's peaumelo? And why does everyone hate its smell?

  8. The packaging reminds me of weird pouch-milk. Haha. I've never used tinted body makeup

  9. If that is medium, I'm dark! I do apply a sunless tanner when I wear a short enough skirt. The photos on their website are pretty funny!

    Would you say the Medium is about a NC20? or NC25?

  13. It took me a good while of saying 'Peaushun' in my head to figure out that it was supposed to sound like potion.
    I must be extra slow today :P

    It does look like juice!

  15. *gasps*! Where are all of our teeny-tiny readers coming from!? :P

  16. LOL! Oh my god, you're right :P It totally does! But larger and much more chic, of course :P

  17. Short! Well, normalish for a Chinese person, I guess. 5"2'?

    "Peau"melo (pomelo) is a citrus fruit – it's large, like a cantaloupe or bigger, and tasty. But for whatever reason, I'm just really not crazy about the smell! :P I may be alone on this one though; I do know people who love the Prtty Peaushun scent.

    Envying you and your cozy slippers :p My feet are always cold! I don't wear slippers, though; I sit cross-legged a lot and they bug me.

  18. Okay, so this is totally off-topic, but I really wish we had bagged milk in Alberta. I just – I don't even know why; I don't even drink milk anymore; I just really like the concept of bagged milk! It's so cute!

  19. Lol! I'd prefer something like this over tanner; it doesn't stain, or leave you orange, or have that faux-tan smell :P

  20. Hmmm. I don't really think the shades work like that – it's sort of like asking what NC shade a bronzer is, y'know? But I do think this would work for a NC20-25; for sure! Just depends on if you want it for an even tone + luminizing, vs. if you want it to darken up your skin a bit.

  21. LOL! Okay, Tracy, I promise to try my best not to :P

  22. Haha, it's okay. We <3 you anyways!

  23. But does not look very tasty coming out of the package, unfortunately :P

    Well, I can't stand the smell of citrus (too many EKG and EEG's will do that to you.) Love homemade lemonade (y'know, with actual lemons) with no pulp (HATE HATE HATE PULP), hate the smell. It's not as bad as grapefruit or oranges (which, if you even start peeling them, I start gagging), but I can't stand the smell. I need a smell-less lemon!

    I'm, on a normal day, .5" taller. On a good day, an inch. I'm short for my family!

    I sit cross-legged a lot, but these don't interfere with sitting cross-legged. They're very fuzzy and comfy (I love anything fuzzy though.) I go through slippers from places like weeds actually (the $20 ones, anyway.) I debated between Eddie Bauer slippers or LL Bean ones. They kind of slippers I like (scuffs) both are different prices (the Bauers are much more expensive), but the Bauer ones are suede upper edged with puffy fleece (fuzzy) and the inside is the same fleece (fuzzy x 10) with a rubber sole; the Beans are just fleece and rubber sole (and the sole wasn't all the nice looking.) Um, I picked the Bauers for obvious reasons (and free shipping.) GIVE ME PUFFY FLEECE!!!!!!! They are pricy ($79.99 US, but appear to be on sale at the moment), but they are worth every penny. No more cold tootsies (and I suffer from chronic cold tootsies.)

    I mean, seriously, would you like to buy this or this ? I'll take option two anyday!

  25. ?? Why do you associate citrus with EKGs, Kate? *confused*

    I LOVE how into your slippers you are :P But I totally know what you mean! I may not love slippers, but if I *did* have to wear them – I'd totally pick the fuzzy ones.

    When you get an EEG or EKG (I got them a lot as a kid because of my Epilepsy), you get stickers put on your chest to monitor your heart. The stickers they put on have a metal disc to put on the wire for reading. When they take them off, they have a spray that smells like oranges and they spray that all over your chest to get the sticky stuff off! It. Smells. AWFUL!!! (To me anyway. Oranges = Spray = Hospital Rooms = Hospital = EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW x 10000000000000000000000000000 = Gag reflex) Just wait until you get one of those suckers, especially an overnight EEG or a holter monitor test. Yikes. I rip those suckers off before they even get that spray out of the drawer! I'll sacrifice a little bit of my skin just so that spray doesn't come near my skin and my nose. Blech.

    I'm not that into slippers. I just love fuzzy. I used to never wear slippers! I used to go around barefoot. Somehow, in my old age, I need my slippers now.

  27. Lies! *flail* Here, they just leave you with weird sticky patches :P I always associate a sweet, synthetic vanilla with hospitals – I do my monthly bloodwork at the the outpatient clinic, and their elastic bands are powdered with a weird vanilla-ish scent >.<

    I always run around in socks, but I'm not so sure it has to do anything with the cold or anything. I just really, really don't like feet. :|

    It depends where you are here. At the state-of-the-art clinics, you better race to get those stickers off! At the ones that aren't in middle class or lower, you may or may not. I was always treated in military hospitals (which are always ALWAYS ahead of civilian hospitals in terms of technology) and hospitals in richer areas. My mom is very much aware of the huge difference in care between the areas, so if she can, she takes me to the hospitals that have the best care. I have some very serious disorders that need competent doctors that'll check on me more than once every 30 minutes (you're lucky if you get that in some areas.) My mom will drive me 15 minutes away to a better hospital after I have a seizure so I get the care I need. Our insurance allows that, thankfully. Unfortunately, that's one bad thing about America. Wherever there's a lot of wealth means much better hospitals with better staff and newer machines. Wherever there's a lot of poverty means less equipped, not as great hospitals with really old machines.

    We don't have scented medical stuff like that here in America. It has to sterile and blah blah blah. FDA is very strict. That's okay, because I like my rubber band smelling rubbery. One thing I like even more is all the hospitals I go to all have gone non-latex so I don't have to worry about having an allergic reaction (ha ha ha ha ha!)

  29. I've never had this before. That looks soooo gorgeous! My shade is medium. @kammi05

  30. Hmm. Our hospitals are pretty well-balanced, I think; and the clinics I go to seem to be more or less the same as well. But, I mean, I've never randomly gone to do bloodwork in another area of the city, so perhaps that's why! :P

    Hey, our medical stuff is sterile! Just, er, randomly scented at times, haha. I have absolutely no idea why; I think they powder them so they don't get stuck and stuff, and the scent might just be a side-effect of the powdering?

  31. Kate & Zena, on December 19th, 2011 at 9:45 pm said:

    I think it's a difference of powders. Gloves are powdered on the inside generally, but it's regular ol' baby powder generally (or talc.) I think we have scented gloves, but if you written in your files that you have allergies or are allergic to perfumes/scents, they use regular ol gloves. I don't know, honestly! All I know is that everything smells rubbery and I don't mind it one bit! Rubber is better than scents for me!

    (I know stuff is sterile there. Here, it's sterile to umpteenth degree. They must go through a sterilizer twice, I think. It is CLEAN. It's crazy sometimes!)
