This product had absolutely rave reviews over the summer for giving a very natural looking warmth to the skin. It sprang to mind again because as usual, my tone is getting paler by the day as there is so much less sunlight. I usually use an SPF daily on my face (in my foundation or BB creams) but not a super high one and I really don’t mind my tone warming up as the summer progresses. I don’t want to be mahogany, but neither am I particularly interested in being completely pale with no pigmentation – I really don’t mind some pigmentation; it’s just part of the whole canvas and anyone would say that a completely blank canvas is somewhat dull.
The reason that this was (is) so loved is that it’s a high concentration – a little goes a long way. So, that’s also a warning if you aren’t used to using this kind of thing. Basically, you mix a tiny bit in with your regular moisturiser and let the warmth build until you’re happy with it. I very rarely use a self tan of any kind – I tend to go with the flow tone wise – but I’m looking at my face thinking, yes, you could do with a drop or two, especially as it’s black sweater weather which will drain out any last bit of colour you might have.
It works by using a blend of 3 DHAs (no smell particularly), Erythrulose (sugar derivative), Vitamin E and Citric Acid. There’s no particular skin benefits to it but because you add it to your daily moisturiser, it won’t, as many DHA products can do, dry out your skin.
