It is the beginning of Spring break around here and while plenty of people are running off to warmer climates, I am happy with the 70 degree and sunny weather right here in Massachusetts. Though I know it won't last, my faux-tan will. We are stay-cationing and faking it all the way. And I am doing it the Bella Bronze way.
I was just introduced to this self-tanning line of products earlier this year. Bella Bronze features products that prepare you for a self-tan, a self-tan itself, and even a product to make your self-tan last. All of the Bella Bronze products feature Golden Chamomile, Virgin Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Goats Milk and Fig Extracts to help you get on a Mediterranean, streak-free tan - that looks beautiful and lasts.
The line up:
Before the bronze -
- Tarraco Orange & Walnut Exfoliator for the face
- Sea Kelp & White Volcanics Scrub for the body
- Sea Water & Minerals Pre-Tan Clarifier
For the bronze -
- Olive & Grape Seed Extract Tinted Self-Tanner for the face
- Golden Chamomile & Goats Milk Self-Tanner for the face & body
- Espresso & Creama Anti-Cellulite Self-Tanner for the legs
After the bronze -
- Olive Oil & Shea Butter Tan Extender
I have been using the Golden Chamomile & Goats Milk Self-Tanner for the face & body.
As it is not tinted, I only use it on my legs, which after years of practice, I can use there for a pretty even tan. If you are a novice, a tinted tanner is what I suggest, but once you get the hang of it, applying a non-tinted version can work equally as well. (I still only use tinted versions on the rest of my body). The nourishing ingredients helps the lotion smooth on easy and helps the color develop into a natural looking glow. Within about 3 - 4 hours, the tan is glowing and it lasts a good 3 - 4 days. Using the Olive Oil & Shea Butter Tan Extender helps my glow last about a week, as this moisturizer keeps skin conditioned with a small amount of self-tanning agent that is included as well.
You can shop for the entire Bella Bronze line up on it's website. You can also scoop up either the Golden Chamomile & Goats Milk Self-Tanner ($26) or the Olive & Shea Butter Tan Extender ($25) in the latest addition of Beautyfix. One of these beauties, a full sized one, is included. For more information on the rest of what is in this quarters edition of Beautyfix visit my earlier post, or simply subscribe at Beautyfix.com.
