Happy Friday, Snobs!
If you’ve caught a serious case of spring fever like I have, then you’re visualizing yourself wearing fun, summery clothes paired with a beautiful, even tan.
But, of course, there’s the well-known catch to achieving that beautifully bronzed skin: skin damage and a lot of time.
For most of us, we don’t have the luxury to develop the ideal natural tan. You have to wear very little clothing in order to prevent tan lines, expose your skin for hours, wear just the right amount of sunscreen so that you get colour but not too much colour, and try to maintain the tan once you get it.
It’s a lot of work, and tanned skin isn’t even good for you! When you think about it, the whole tanning thing is actually quite ridiculous.
So now that we all have thought about it, let’s seriously consider the alternative: sunless tanner.
I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with sunless tanner for years. I’ve loved some, and I’ve hated some.
But let me tell you about one special self-tanner that just recently found its way into my heart and won’t be leaving anytime soon.
That self-tanner is…
As you can see by the little red badge beside the image, this product is an award winner. After trying it out for myself, I’ve decided that the award is well-deserved.
This mousse is light-weight and extremely easy to apply. Basically, just dispense about a golf ball amount of mousse and rub it on your skin in a circular motion. I really love that you can see the colour as you’re applying it so that you know if you’ve missed a spot. I also really love that this product doesn’t give off a strong odour; it’s aroma is mild and pleasant. On top of it all, it only takes 60 seconds to dry and contains aloe vera, so your skin gets some lovin’ and your tan becomes long lasting.
I picked up a 4 oz. bottle for $38 at Sephora. Although that price might seem steep for a little 4 oz. bottle, it’s totally worth it. This self-tanner blows any previous tanners out of the water, which include practically every brand Shoppers’ Drug Mart has to offer.
And if it can be my reliable source for that beautiful golden colour that DOESN’T result in skin damage, then there’s not much to argue, is there?
Until next time, stay fabulous. xo
