Last week I shared with you all my favorite products I use on my face to achieve a gorgeous summery glow; today I’m excited to share with you my favorites to achieve beautiful summer glow. These products are ones I use on the regular and will get you glowing all sorts of ways!
This is my secret to looking like I’ve just come back from a tropical vacation! This tanning mouse delivers a gorgeous, natural tan in just 3 hours. It’s pretty easy to use, and when done right, is streak-free and fades beautifully! I also love how this is a very non-sticky formula compared to most self-tanners. I feel fine applying it and putting on clothes and going about my business. I will say, the bronzer does transfer, especially if it’s before the original wash-off, so definitely stick to darker clothing before doing that. After that, the transfer is pretty minimal! Defitely my favorite tanning mousse!
So this is a very new release from St. Tropez, and I have to say, it’s pretty good! It’s a clear tanning mousse, to avoid the transfer that comes from any tan colored mousse! Genius. The only downside is that it’s less powerful than the express tanning mousse, so the resulting tan is not as deep, but it’s buildable, so you could get there if you’re diligent about applying regularly. It’s also so helpful for when you’re short on time or forget to apply the night before. I usually apply the express or regular tan and leave it on overnight, wearing dark-colored PJs, but this I can put on right before getting dressed in anything I want and heading out! It also smells really nice, and the resulting tan is a lovely golden color!
This cream is the holy grail of creams; it’s just prefect in every way! It smells heavenly, sweet and nutty but not over powering. It’s extremely hydrating, feels like a body butter, but isn’t greasy or heavy. But it also gives your skin a mini-makeover, the extremely subtle shimmer leaves it glowing and the guarana leaves it a bit firmer and tighter than it found it. The coconut oil also leaves your skin super soft and touchable. It’s a bit on the pricey side for a cream, at $45, but considering how much you get and how amazing it is, I’d say it’s worth it!
This dry oil is so lovely! It smells amazing and remind me of summers growing up by the beach. It also applies on nicely… It’s light and quick to absorb, so no mess or fuss! It leaves your skin hydrated and glowy. Definitely a favorite for summer beach or pool day!
I recently got this from a PR package, and was so pleastantly surprised by how great it was! It’s hydrating and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. The tan is also pretty substantial! I didn’t expect it to have as noticeable as an effect as my tanning mousses, but I found myself glowy and golden after just 1 application. I also loved how even and non-streaky the resulting tan was! I find sometimes tanning lotions can be easier to streak with, as you can’t always see where you rubbed it in, but I had no problems with this. I was in a rush and moving quickly when I applied it, so I was happy that it blended in so well! The price is also amazing for a tanning product – this bottle usually sells for around $12 and I didn’t need to use much to get a full -body application out of it!
