Seeking a quick-fix tan?
Not a big fan of basking in the sun sans SPF?
::Enter two bronzing products worthy of gold medals::
I, personally, am not partial to tanners that take 20 minutes to dry while I do the starfish-stance so as to prevent staining my household items and creating splotches on myself. ::Frown at the thought:: I dislike products that (unfathomably) require more maintenance than I do. For those like me - here are two products that give instant results:
At $3.80 this product is a steal! The Love & Beauty Shimmer Cream is concentrated enough for just a dab to be used as an effective cheek color - instant bronze and Mineral Oil free! Though the product declares itself a shimmer, it is extremely subtle, with the bronzing pigment being its most noticeable characteristic. Truly, more than a 1/4 of a dime-sized amount and you may begin to look a bit like Oscar from the Academy Awards; this product is extremely effective. Also, worry not that the cream will feel heavy and slick on your skin - it applies smoothly and rubs in without leaving a sticky sheen.
LORAC's TANtalizer Body Luminizer is a lotion-type formula with a luminous shimmery effect. The product isn't extremely pigmented, just enough to fake a starter tan with a soft glow. In addition to moisturizing and applying easily, TANtalizer out-performs in that it provides instant results with no starfish-stance necessary.
Fake it 'til you make it, Fabulous!
