In the late Spring and Summer I’m able to obtain a modest tan, but as soon as the temperature drops, I lose aaaall of my golden goddess capabilities. On my face it’s fine because I sometimes use a slightly darker foundation and/or bronzer but my legs are another story. I absolutely hate the smell of self-tanners so I just skip them, but when I received the Beautisol Tea Tan Glow – Body Bronzer ($25, 4oz) as part of the *iFabbo Network, I was excited to try it.
A wash off body bronzer, the formula gives you a streak-free buildable tan that you don’t have to commit to-it washes off easily with soap and water. Paraben-Free, Propylene Glycol-Free, and Cruelty-Free (Vegan and PETA certified), it has both green tea and rooibos tea extracts, so it doesn’t irritate or inflame skin. It has a clean smell (thank goodness!) and it doesn’t turn you orange, which is one of the other things I hate about self-tanner. It also comes with an application mitt so you don’t have to worry about messing up your nails. As long as you exfoliate and moisturize your skin prior to using it, skin will look fine; just have to apply it like lotion, let your skin dry ( it says 60 seconds but I say 3-5 minutes) and then you’re good to go.
