Not Just an Ordinary Bronzer.

Like the title says, this is no ordinary Bronzer. Why, it is GlowFusion Micro-Tech Intuitive Active Bronzer - so it cannot be ordinary.

Fusion Beauty's products, particularly those of Glow Fusion, always perplex me. There is just so much science behind their products, that I sometimes wonder - is it hype? Or are these so called "revolutionary" products really different?


Fusion Beauty's GlowFusion Bronzer is formulated with their M-Tox - a special blend of naturally derived ingredients that hinder muscle movement.  M-Tox. Is it the naturally derived alternative to Botox? Well, that should be a post in itself, so excuse my question.

"This featherweight pressed bronzer creates a gorgeous glow while softly restoring your youthful lit-from-within radiance. Invisiskin delivers additional antioxidant botanicals including rice bran and honey extract into the skin and keeps skin hydrated and protected for up to 24 hours, while a soft focus effect imparts a creamy texture and diffuses light to soften imperfections. It targets the expression lines while inhibiting muscle contractions to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenates your youthful radiance while protecting your skin from free radicals that expedite premature aging."

I just find it interesting that a blend of ingredients such as M-Tox be used in a makeup product. I do agree that the colors look pretty, and that this bronzer isavailable in three shades: Golden, Luminous, and Sunshine. Each bronzer retails for a hefty price tag of $39.

Are you a Fusion Beauty believer? And if you have used this, what are your results with GlowFusion Bronzer?

My GlowFusion Alternative.

So I have previously written about the pricey Fusion Beauty's GlowFusion Airglow for $175.  Seeing as I did not have the best of luck with the GlowFusion lotion, I though I would recommend my GlowFusion alternative.

modelco.jpgModelCo Tan Airbrush In A Can  is my alternative of choice.  With a 360-degree nozzle spraying the finest of mist to cover every body area evenly, this self-tanner is the closest to GlowFusion - but with better results, for me anyway.

The Coverage: Great! The mist sprays out very fine, and if you take your time and spray slowly, you get very even coverage. I recommend buying the tinted version first to get a feel of how the spray works. Areas like the back of arms and legs, even the neck are easy to reach with this spray. I like this best for my neck, back, chest and arms. Hands are a breeze with this formula. All you do is keep your fingers closed tightly to avoid staining the palms, and spray lightly a bit further from your hands than you would normally spray your body, and you get a very light coverage. With you hands, remember that less is more!

The Smell: Very slight. When initially spraying the formula, you smell a scent of cocoa butter in the air. It is very light and fresh. The smell of DHA is ever so faint, and really doesn't appear until the color is fully developed in 3 - 4 hours.

Drying Time: Fast! If sprayed correctly, this self-tanner dries within 2 - 3 minutes. If you are spraying so much that you see your body wet, you are spraying too much.

Staining: The translucent formula does not stain or transfer anywhere. You can dress as soon as you are dry or slip right into white sheets and not worry. The original formula that leaves color when sprayed, will leave a residue on everything it touches as you spray. I spray it in an area of my basement with old sheets on the floor. Do not spray this version in the bathroom as you will notice a build-up of colored dust that is a real pain to clean. When using the colored formula, wait a good 15 - 20 minutes before dressing or slipping between the sheets.

Lasting Time: 5 - 7 days! REALLY, I spray myself with this once a week. Sometimes I will apply it after 5 days if I want to darken up a little more, but plan on a full body spray at least once a week.

Price: ModelCo Tan Airbrush In A Can comes in three sizes, 1.7 oz (good for 1 - 2 complete body sprays) for $7, 5.3 oz for $28, or 7.8 oz for $36.  ModelCo Tan Translucent Airbrush In A Can  comes in just one 5.3 oz size for $28.

More GlowFusion.

I do not even know if I should address this product or not. 


Fusion Beauty's GlowFusion Airglow for $175.  The refills are $62. Gosh, that is a lot for a tan.

Honestly, this doesn't look much different than the Salon Bronze spray gun that I have seen on TV.

With so many comments on the GlowFusion product last summer, I am anxious to hear your thoughts on this.

Will I run out and purchase? No. Would I give it a try given the opportunity? Heck, yeah. But, where could you apply this? In the shower, and hope to dry right away and clean the shower? Or go outside and spray it and hope that the neighbors don't see? I imagine it will get all over the place when spraying.

Thoughts, anyone???
