What if a single product could quench dry skin, add a believable bronze and inhibit future hair growth? The miraculous European Wax Center Glow It Gradual Body Lotion ($20) does just that.
If You Want to Know
European Wax Center has allowed us to “walk in and strut out” of their offices thanks to their menu of confidence-boosting waxing services, and now they’re here to make our lives so much easier with their latest launch: Glow It Gradual Body Lotion ($20).

The bronze bottle is pretty on its own, but the real magic happens inside of it where a high-quality formula not only quiets dryness on the body, but also delivers a buildable, gradual tan and slows hair growth over time with continued use. You won’t notice a difference in the latter promise for a little while—it’s designed to reduce hair growth between waxes, so shaving or waxing won’t be eliminated entirely—but you will notice a reduction in growth. I even noticed a thinner follicle once I was nearing the end of the first bottle. (However, results do vary!)
As for the color payoff, there are currently two shades available (Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan) and both streak-free colors free of any orange tones and are totally believable. Plus, the formula is easy to build on until your ideal glow level is achieved, and every drop imparts an instant blurring effect to “filter” dimpling or insecurities a little bit.
If you’ve had a bad experience with a self-tanner before, don’t worry! This one is virtually foolproof: Just apply it onto bare legs and let it dry! If you’re anything like me, applying lotion—let alone a bronzing lotion!—right after shaving can be painful and leave you with red, splotchy legs. But this product houses the brand’s exclusive Comfort Blend to calm the skin, leaving you no reason not to lather it on after the shower. Sun dresses, here we come.
