It’s July! And we’re obviously all about smoother, tighter, softer skin. Beyond body lotions and scrubs, there’s a new product to think about: Urban Decay Naked Skin Body Beauty Balm — a skin-perfecting cream for your whole body. Launched as part of their Summer Nights Collection, the product was created to tighten and hydrate skin while offering optical blurring effects.
As far as tightening and hydrating goes, this honestly feels and wears more like a liquid highlighter for your body. Maybe tightening happens over time, but there’s no visible effects after a few uses. If you have really dry skin, you’d need to layer this over your body lotion. Formula-wise, it features a medium consistency that, once dry, leaves a satin-like, dewy feeling on your skin. If you’re familiar with the brand’s BB cream for your face, this has the same subtle, peppermint-esque scent.
It only comes in one shade, but it’s a gorgeous one: a peach-like beige with golden undertones that leaves behind a radiant, high-sheen finish. It’s great for shoulders, decolletage and legs, especially in the sun. The packaging doesn’t list any sun protection, but a quick look at the ingredients list reveals it contains two UV filters: Octinoxate 7.5% and Zinc Oxide 3.4%.
The best thing about the body balm is that it really does offer optical blurring effects. If you have any discoloration or imperfections (read: cellulite), a quick application of this does well to give the appearance of smoother skin — sort of like a real-life Instagram filter (Nashville, maybe). Be warned though: if you have any tattoos, it will blur them out and make them look less vibrant. That’s how well the optical illusion effect of this works.

Overall, it’s a really great summertime product that gives your skin a sexy, luminous vibe. It probably won’t replace your daily lotion, but it’s a great product to add to your summer beauty routine.
