I don’t know about you, but in the summer I want my skin to be three things…tan, bronzed and highlighted! ? I have naturally fair skin and don’t like to be in the sun too long, so a natural tan isn’t the way to go for me. I have tried my fair share of sunless tanners, bronzers and highlighters. There are so many options out there, and if you aren’t sure where to start, then, you have come to the right place. I am going to share my favorites!
Be sure to share your favorites with me. I love to know what you all are loving too!
St. Tropez Self Tanning Express Bronzing Mousse – Hands down my favorite sunless tanner. It is a mousse formula. Glides on the skin easily and so easy to blend. You leave it on the skin for 1-3 hrs max. and rinse it off in the shower. It doesn’t leave your skin sticky, irritated or patchy. The tan will set over night and by the morning you will look like a bronzed goddess! The tan lasts up to 1 week. I typically use this before a photo shoot or special event.
Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer – This is a newer product in my collection. I tired it after reading a blog post about it. It sounded interesting and I am really loving it so far. It is unlike the original Jergens gradual tan because you apply it to your wet skin, right after the shower. It is easy to rub in and doesn’t leave you with that weird smell that the original formula has. It gradually adds a natural looking color to your skin. This has to be my new favorite!
Nars Laguna Bronzer – This bronzer has been my go-to for years now. It is a natural looking shade for my skin and adds the right amount of bronze without being too muddy or dark.
Josie Maran Highlighter – This isn’t super intense highlighter that makes your skin glow in the dark, but it is one of my favorites. I love a natural looking glow…like I just got back from the beach. I add this to the high points of my face, cheeks, nose, and cupids bow.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Water – I shared a full review on this product here, so I won’t go into too much detail, but this is got to be one of my favorites from that review. I love using this as a setting spray or packing it in my pool bag for a skin refresher on a hot day.
