Affordable Bronzing Products

Summer may be fading away…but that doesn’t mean your tan has to! I love fall but I’m always sad to see my summer tan go away as it seems like the sun disappears in Seattle for the next 6+ months! Now, I have never been into “tanning” per se, I never get super tan because of my skin tone, but I do appreciate that my skin gets some all over color during the summer (with wearing sunscreen of course!). I really like a light tan; I’m not interested in getting professional tans because I don’t want to look too dark and obviously look like I went out and got a tan. I still want to look like myself! I am so happy that I have found two affordable products that help me achieve that natural summer glow!

First one is the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Hydrating Self-Tanning Water Mousse! It has a long name, but it does what it says! In the past I have used other after shower tanning products but either they didn’t give much of a tan or they looked streaky and the color was weird. I LOVE how this one looks! It builds up really nicely too, so I feel like I can control the color. It’s easy to apply, feels comfortable (ie not sticky!), doesn’t transfer color to clothes/sheets and gives an even application!  It’s enriched with coconut water and Vitamin E, it smells so good! I am so impressed by this and am excited to continue using it all year long!

I really love the easy all over tanning mousse, but I don’t use it on my face. There are some tanning products out there that say they can be used on the face but that always makes me a bit nervous. Instead, I keep my face glowy and matching the rest of my skin with Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. I have it in “Light Bronzer” and “Bronzer”, they have 8 shades! I used to never use bronzer because I was a bit intimidated. Would it be obvious and look fake? What I love about the Butter Bronzer is that it is easy to use. It blends out well. You can start light and build it up so you don’t overdo it at first application. It gives a nice healthy glow to the face without looking unnatural. And it smells like a tropical vacation!!

These two products will keep away the winter blahs for sure! Have you tried out either of these? Let me know if you do!
