Best. Self. Tanner. EVER. And I've tried a LOT of self-tanners. I've found my HG and I wanted to share it with you!
I first heard of Beautisol through one of my faves Amber at Beauty Junkies Unite. She's a long time lover of this product and had the opportunity to go on HSN to demonstrate and talk about it with the founder Sinead Norineus (AKA The Queen of Self-Tanning and founding member of iFabbo). I set up my DVR because how cool to see Amber on TV, right?! I honestly had no plans to buy Beautisol; I just wanted to see one of my favorite bbloggers rockin' it live on the tube! However, I was convinced Beautisol was the self-tanner I'd been looking for after only the first few minutes of the segment! The results on the models, Sinead, and Amber were like WHOA, and I needed it!
I used to bake in the sun without any sunscreen and while I did go from Snow White to Pocahontas, I saw that my sun habit was leading to hyper pigmentation that didn't fade away after the sun set on summer. In later years, I started to develop what I called the "sunstache", a nice term for melasma appearing above my mouth. It took months to fade away. The last straw was when I had to wear concealer on my upper lip for six months after my last sunbathing excursion. That was a few years ago, and since then, I've worn SPF daily and avoided my previous inclinations to spend hours soaking up the sun without sunscreen.
While I know I'm doing positive things for my skin, I sometimes long for that golden bronze glow. I've used many a self-tanner and never found one that looked believable, didn't smell to high heaven, and didn't lead to break outs. That is, until I found Beautisol!
How is Beautisol different from other self-tanners? It features Pure Scent Technology so it smells fresh and clean when applied and while it works. There is no trace of that tell-tale "self-tanner stink" that calls to mind baked chicken with a side order of chemicals. Beautisol smells GREAT!
The color is so natural looking and lasts me over a week, even with regular use of masks and scrubs. One really important factor for me was that this face tanner did not break me out. This is a first!! Every facial tanner I've ever used has led to some kind of zit flare-up. I've been using both the face and body tanner for 3 weeks and haven't had any issues.
You can see instant bronzing results, and the color fully develops after about 6-8 hours. The mitt makes even application a breeze and keeps your hands clean.
|Before & Immediately After - No makeup (apologies for my brows - they need to be threaded again!)|
If you've been looking for a self-tanner that doesn't stink, streak, or lead to break outs, you should definitely give Beautisol a look!
My Rating: A+
