We asked what your favourite products are when it comes to getting gorge legs

Summer, where you at?!

SUMMER CAN BE a hard ol’ time of year if you’re a leg.

Think about it – you’re trapped within a near militant regimen, consisting of a constant cycle of exfoliating, shaving and tanning.

The constant aggravation can leave your legs looking a bit worse for wear over time. I reached out on Instagram to see what people recommended for saving scoured pins in a jiffy, and these were the top faves:

1. Silcock’s Base (€3.25)


Silcocks base is unscented and is used in hospitals so you know it’s safe for sensitive skin.
I have REALLY sensitive skin so I always use Silcocks Base as a moisturiser for face and body. My skin is insanely soft with it and it’s so gentle too.”
I swear by it – I bring it from home to London because it’s not licenced there. Well worth it!”

2. E45 Cream (€4.95)


E4A is a good medical grade moisturiser that calms irritated skin, its really good.”

3. Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Anti-Irritation Shower Oil (€15.50)


My legs were in a state after lots of scrubbing and fake tan. This totally calms our skin. A HUGE bottle is like €16 and lasts forever.”

4. Aveeno Daily Moisturising Yoghurt Body Wash Apricot and Honey (€4)


This much better than the mawky, oat smelling one – it’s amazing and not irritating at all.”

5. Veet Hair Removal Cream for Sensitive Skin (€6)


No matter what I used, my legs were red and painful and rashy, before putting it down to shaving. I tried everything, different razors, different water temperature … Nothing worked.
Now I use hair removal cream and it’s way better.”

6. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm (€11.49)


This is the only thing that I’ve used that has addressed the texture of the skin on my legs, which I’ve put down to a build up of keratin. This MASSIVELY reduced all the bumps I get from shaving from the first use.”

7. Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula lotion (€8)


This is the only thing I use now!”

8. Amlactin ($22.11)


I have kerastasis pilaris and I’ve found that this really helps. You can get it on Amazon.”

9. L’Occitane Concentre de Lait (€46)


10. Aloe vera gel


Everyone needs to get a bottle, pop it in the fridge, and thank me later.”

11. Ovelle Aqueous Cream (€3.05)

This is so cheap but works so well for me! I don’t need to use anything else with this.”

12. The most highly recommended? Good ol’ fashioned coconut oil.


I know it’s cliché, but coconut oil is such a cure-all for skin stuff, especially on my legs!”
