Hello Gorgeous Bronzed Skin!

Wednesday, Feb. 6th - Dear Diary, it’s the dead of winter, and my face has lost all color and notion of the summer sun. Oh wait just kidding - I live in San Diego! Yet, it’s not as easy to tan here in the wintertime as you think. In fact, I am going to need a little help, and today, I am testing out a new sunless face tanner from bareMinerals, which launches online and in boutiques in March 2013. Here are my results!

Color: Beautiful bronzed color! I literally look like I just got back from a tropical vacation. I could easily wear this bronzed look alone with little to no makeup, maybe mascara or blush. Great look for anyone who enjoys a healthy and natural visage.

Smell: It has an intoxicating scent of almond! I appreciate that it doesn’t smell like coconut because I am not a fan, and other sunless tanners that I have used in the past have contained coconut oil.

Feel: It has a creamy feel and not overly greasy. It did give me a dewy glow, but I can wear under my makeup or mattify with a translucent powder.

Skincare: It has plant-derived emollients to help lock in moisture. On the plus side, it didn’t clog my pores. I have very sensitive skin (prone to breakout or hives when introduced to new products), but I didn’t experience any of these issues even after a few days later.

Longevity: It’s been a week, and I can still see a slight boost of color to my face.

Application Tips: I love how easy it is to apply either with a brush or mixed with my moisturizer. For maximum color, just use a synthetic flat brush, and buff it on. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate first as this step will give you a nice even tan. Finally, don’t forget to apply to your neck as well. You definitely want the color of your face and neck to match.

Conclusion: Overall, I can see myself using this product again. I love the idea of having bronzed skin where I need very little makeup. I can’t wait for summer!
