Tanners and Bronzers

November 29, 2005

1. Elizabeth Arden Sheer Body Bronzer
This creamy and shimmery product dries down to a powdery finish but does feel slightly greasy. The colour is a warm bronze gold which leaves behind more of a shimmer than a bronze. The packaging and concept is highly appealing, however as the product is a creamy consistency the puff quickly becomes soiled and while it can be hand laundered, not all the pigment comes out. www.elizabetharden.com.au

2. Clarins Glow ? A Face Tale
This little bronze compact that is perfect for the busy chick who travels a lot but doesn?t want to look like she is too busy for a little sun on her face. Apply with a large bronzing brush and gives you a healthy glow like you have just had a nice day in the sun. The packaging is divine – it’s designed as a gorgeous little story book!

3. Nivea Sun ? Self Tan Lotion
This fake tan product is unlike any other tanning products as it comes out of the pump bottle in a lotion, it actually feels and looks just like a moisturiser until you get that familiar fake tan scent. This one has Vitamin E and Macadamia Nut oil in it, so it does feel good going on but it does take a few hours to work so make sure you put it early in the day if you are planning a big night out. www.nivea.com.au

4. Scott Barnes ‘Body Bling’
The name says it all really! The key to using this product is to use sparingly and massage well into the skin. It dries quickly but use only on exposed skin as it can rub off on clothing. Gives a bit of extra colour and shimmery glow for slightly tanned skin. Perhaps not best for every day but add a little at night for an instant sun kissed look.

5. Clinique Self-Tan ? Quick Bronze Tinted Self Tanner Mousse
This self tanner works very well but does need to be applied carefully as can leave obvious streaks and marks if you are not careful. It too has that unmistakeable scent of fake tan although the smell doesn?t last long once you have applied it and the tan is rich and natural looking. Apply in the morning before a big night out and don?t shower once you have applied it, just do your makeup and dress for a big night!

6. Natural Compatibles -Silk-n-Shimmer Body Moisturiser
This is great for summer parties when you just want to add a little shimmer to your body ? best for chest and arms worn with frocks with lots of flesh to show off. The chamomile, vitamin E and aloe vera extracts have a lovely fresh scent that leaves your skin feeling moisturised as well as looking fabulous.

7.Sugar Baby Tanners
Both of SugarBaby?s tanning products – Princess in Paradise Self Tanning Lotion and Golden Glamour tan in a can have a distinctive, summery smell and create a natural-looking tan. The colour is good, the lotion is just thin enough to make it easy to apply and the spray is even and light. Takes a bit longer to dry than other lotions, but the extra ten minutes are worth it.
