Over the years I have read rave reviews about This Works products particularly bath and body so when a recent review caught my eye I checked out their website and spent ages browsing and reading the reviews. I was impressed with the mainly 5 star reviews this product received and that it has won a couple of beauty awards.
A real bonus for me is they sell a number of kits with several products in which allows you to try without shelling out for the full size. They had a kit on sale that contained 3 products which seemed like a good way to try but this review is of Perfect Legs Skin Miracle which I bought in their body beautiful kit.
This Works is a British Company founded in 2003 and they claim that the title 'This Works' will only be awarded to exceptional products which deliver on their promise, without compromising wellbeing or the environment. Each product is tested and evaluated by a panel of 50 modern women until they deserve the title 'This Works'.
Perfect Legs Skin Miracle is a serum for the legs that also delivers some temporary colour and leaves legs with a sun kissed glow.
The normal size product is 120ml and costs £36, however mine came in a 50ml tube as part of a kit that cost £13 - which is a bargain.
The first thing that hits you is the scent when you start to work this in - this is a gorgeous product that smells absolutely divine.
Difficult to describe the exact smell, but it is a more a natural plant essential oil smell rather than a floral which must be a combination of a range of ingredients they use in this product. I won't list them as there are too many but lots of essential oils , shea butter and seaweed combined with vitamin C which they claim will perfect repair and enhance your legs.
What I really like about this is it also delivers temporary colour so after applying it leaves my legs looking wonderful. A very natural looking colour that transformed my legs from a pasty white to a healthy light tan with a lovely sheen.
Not exactly Essex girl or David Dickinson colour but if you want a light natural looking tan then this delivers exactly that.
It is very easy to apply simply smooth over your legs or any other part of the body and blend in the colour.
The consistency is quite runny so you need to blend well and it comes out of the tube quite quickly and is a rather scary dark brown colour. However that blends to a lovely light tan colour, which did not scream an obvious fake tan colour , essential for me as I am very pale skinned.
I used this almost every day for about 2 weeks on my legs, arms and chest and I still have lots of the 50ml size left.
This did not seem to stain my clothes or the white bed sheets like other temporary tans do, which is a major bonus , but I would recommend you leave it to dry before dressing. I also wiped my palms to remove the residue.
This looked good in daylight and at night , no scary knees, feet or elbows.
Would I recommend
Yes this is an amazing product that delivers on its promise to smooth and improve the skin texture in a serum, but also delivers natural looking colour and a healthy sheen , so 3 products in one.
It smells amazing and has made a difference to my skin . I would not say it has perfected as they claim, but there is a noticeable difference to the the overall look and my skin feels much better.
I use body moisturisers on a daily basis as I have psoriasis and I need to keep my skin well moisturised before applying my prescription creams. This has not irritated my skin even the sore patches and so I can use this in combination with my other creams with no problems.
I hate exposing my pasty white legs and arms but have real difficulty with fake tan application and have now given up trying, so this is perfect for me. I have tried temporary products in the past but have none have worked as well as this one.
It is a delight to apply as it is so easy and the scent develops as you apply this on the skinwhich is a treat to the senses. It instantly transforms the look and feel of your skin wherever you apply this and leaves a sheen a little like when you apply a shimmer brick.
You can build up colour by applying a couple of times on pale skin or I would imagine this would enhance tanned skin as well.
I bought mine in a kit with 2 other products for £13 so just over £4 for 50ml which was a really good buy.
Full size is a considered purchase at £36 for 120ml from This Works , but they seem to have smaller sizes available in a range of kits which represent better value.
Also this comes in a 50ml version with 2 other products for £25 available from Boots and online retailors
5 Stars from me
I suffer from very dry skin on my legs but this product has been a miracle worker. It helps to smooth out my legs and keep them soft and moisturised all day. The addition on the 'summer glow' helps me feel confident in the summer months to get my legs out as they look wonderful and the subtle shimmer hides any blemishes and makes my legs look slimmer and healthier.
The only downside to this product is the price. At £36 this can become pricy when used every day although I think it is worth the money for me to feel more confident about my legs and since I am short, it goes alot further!
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who suffers from dry skin as it will make your legs feel and look amazing and so soft to the touch. Your confidence will soar when you have used this product for a while and I'm sure you will agree with me after a month of using this product.
