Although I love my light skin tone and dark hair (and eyes) and the high contrast, I like “tanning it up” a bit for SS season.
And by that, I mean that I use the following products which have been my helpers for several seasons now:
Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan
After not having any success with affordable (read cheap) self tanners, I’ve decided to try Xen Tan, as I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. I’ve got this product with the mitt for £32 which is a bit more than I’d like to spend on a tanning product, as it’s not on top of my beauty must-haves. But I am very happy that I did get it, the quality is amazing. It gives a beautiful healthy looking tan, without steaks. To read all the details click here.
Xen-Tan Transform Luxe
If you have fair/light skin and don’t want to get a deep tan, you may prefer the Xen Tans Transform Luxe self tanner, as it gives a more subtle effect. Want to find out more?
Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil
As with self tanners, I have tried cheap(er) shimmering body products in the past but was not satisfied with the performance that much. So I ended up purchasing this luxurious body oil from Omorovicza. It is a bit of an investment at the £52/€75 for 100 ml price point (a little goes a long way), but I think it’s one of my best beauty purchases for “summer body”. It moisturizers my very dry skin and leaves gorgeous glow/shimmer. You can see it applied here.
Daniel Sandler Billion Dollar Body Shimmer
If you don’t like the idea of body oils in hot summer weather, you may like this powder shimmer which you can apply with a big kabuki brush. Several minutes and you are ready for any summer party!
