Celebrities are known for looking perfect on the red carpet because there is always an army of people and products that go into their appearance. And you know that shimmering, glowing skin celebs have on red carpets and models have in photo shoots? Well, you can blame Prtty Peaushun‘s line of skin firming, shimmering lotions.
Developed by Hollywood makeup artist, Bethany Karlyn, Prtty Peaushun (pronounced “pretty potion”) is a favorite of celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Taylor Swift, and trainer Tracy Anderson.
Aside from getting gorgeous, dewy skin with an Epic Beauty-style diet and lifestyle, you can get an instant, picture-perfect glow from Prtty. I was looking into buying a pouch to try and, as fate would have it, they contacted me to ask if I’d like a Prtty lotion to review. My answer was “absolutely!” and here I am, reviewing this natural glow-giver. It’s not a self-tanner and it won’t make you look like a trashy sparkly mess, thanks to the super tiny light-reflecting particles.

First, I love the pouch. It is a heckuvalot bigger in person than the pictures lead you to believe. Here’s my hand holding it, for perspective (and do note: my hands are not tiny – I have those long skinny witchy hands).
It’s minimalistic, easy to use, and allows you to get out every last drop. Each pouch is 8 fluid ounces, which will last me months (probably a year, since I don’t use lotion often).
The color is phenomenal. It’s like molten gold or liquid sunshine or [insert other epic simile here]…just look at that. I want to eat it.
The color above is Medium. Prtty Peaushun lotions come in several different shades (Light, Medium, Dark, and Deep), including one without any color, aptly named “Plain” (it still adds a subtle shimmer, but without added color). I recommend ordering a shade darker than you think you need, especially if you want to even out your skin tone and get a bit of color. For my pale skin, the Medium or Dark is perfect on my body, and the Medium is great to highlight my face.
Now for the “before and after” pictures.
I had applied some organic Sun Gelee self-tanner from Spray di Sole a few hours before, since I knew it would be difficult to show the before and after with my crappy lighting and super white skin. Check out the difference.
Nice brown, natural-looking tan sans Prtty’s glowing touch…
After applying Prtty Peaushun in Medium. It left a beautiful, radiant golden hue to the skin…
Overall, I am definitely a fan of Prtty Peaushun. It smells good, it doesn’t feel sticky, goes on easily, and doesn’t rub off on clothes (I let it sit for about 10 minutes to dry, though 5 should suffice). It washes off pretty easy without soap once you’ve had enough glow for the night.
