So, I wanted to do a quick post about the self tanner I mentioned in the last post.
Like I had said before, I used to get this at ULTA, but I found that Amazon has much better prices. I recently bought this huge 32 oz pump bottle for $50.00. That might sound like a lot, but it will last probably the whole year, and I can pump a smaller amount in my old 12 oz bottle for weekend travels.
I LOVE this stuff. I usually apply every few days in the summer and then less frequently in the winter. I feel so much better when I am glowing, and I get the peace of mind knowing that I am staying out of the real sun AND using a product that is paraben free, made with natural ingredients, and is not tested on animals!
Another great brand of self tanner is Fake Bake. You can also get this on Amazon, or at ULTA, if you need it right away.
SIDE NOTE: I have definitely been known to indulge in a spray tan session with my friend, Claire, at the salon where she works. It’s only $35.00 and I try to reserve this only for special occasions, since I can use SUN self tanner to prolong the tan.
I sometimes use Fake Bake’s Babe Bronzer.
It is paraben free, which is great for your skin, and has a shimmer. I want to specify that this is NOT a glitter, which can sometimes be too much. The color is pretty good too, not too red and dirty looking, but clean and tan.
But…I am still obsessed with Benefit’s Hoola bronzer.
This DOES has parabens, and so I am on the lookout for one that has the same matte golden brown color, but without the nasty parabens!
Do you have any suggestions for healthier bronzers? I would LOVE to have some options!!
