Summer, Summer, Summertime!
Welcome June! I am so happy to see you. My pasty white skin can’t take hiding any longer. But oh the woes of blinding everyone in sight with this nearly translucent skin. What’s a gal to do?
First up: SELF TANNING!
Anyone that knows me knows that I love some Clarins sun care! I am a loyal customer of their sunscreens, tanning sprays, and sunless tanning products (as well as ALL of their body products). I have been using their Intense Bronze Self Tanning Tint for years. Now it comes in newer packaging and I believe more oz per bottle. It’s the stuff of legends! My absolute favorite feature of this self tanner is that it is a tint, so it gives you an immediate bronze color on the skin which my impatient side loves. We are a generation of instant gratification lovers! Also, because it can be applied to the skin with a cotton round/pad (it comes out as a lightweight liquid) in a bronze color, there are no mistakes, streaks or missed areas. I love a fool-proof self tanner!
Up next: Tan Extenders
Also pictured above is a smaller Clarins product called Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. This product was brand new to me. When I stumbled upon it as I was replenishing my self tanner I was so (probably too much) excited! I used to use the Radiance-Plus moisturizer for face back in the day but disliked the smell so I stopped. This product is genius. You simply add just 3 drops to YOUR OWN moisturizer and it gives you a natural glow. You can use it everyday to build on the color and then spread out applications to maintain. I’m a bit of a junkie so I like to use it daily right now because I’m not out in the sun very often.
