Looking to extend that natural sun-kissed glow? Try @beautisol #ad

Well for us in the northeast summer is over but that does not mean your tan has to fade!  I am always one to use a great spf and then a self-tanner too for a bit of color. I have tried a lot of self-tanners over the years and am always looking for a natural, safe line. One that I just discovered is beautisol. It smells great and is cruelty free and vegan formulated without parabens.

I tested out the Medium Self-Tanning Mousse. What I liked is that it is lightweight, quick drying and offers a natural sun kissed glow. No orange at all. This is the best self-tanner I have tried in a while (and I have tried everything from lotions to gradual to spray tanning) and it lasts.

It does have a nice sent which most of the self-tanning products on the market do not. Their website says, “Beautisol’s odor eliminating fragrance technology, PURE SCENT, helps to neutralize the unpleasant processing odors that self-tanners are famous for by up to 80%.” and I agree – no weird smell.

I love how all products are PETA certified and are free of parabens, propylene glycol, sodium laurel and laureth sulfate. They have a line of other lotions, exfoliating mitts and application mitts – check them out!

Disclosure: The company sent me the mousse to test out. All opinions in this blog post are my own.

Summer Hair & Skin from @NaturesGate

My tween and teen love testing out shampoo, conditioner and body washes and they certainly voice their opinions on them all. That is why the products have to smell nice and work well. We got a chance to test out @NaturesGate Pomegranate & Sunflower hair defense shampoo and conditioner as well as the pomegranate body wash. They loved the smell and liked how they all coordinated. Seriously, how many times do you find something for both the hair and body that smells good and is the same scent? No one wants to smell like a hundred different fragrances. This is the perfect combo for summertime hair and skin care (and great for moms for color treated hair). With a blend of pomegranate and sunflower petals it smells fresh and clean.

Nature’s Gate also makes this great product – The Nature’s Gate Glow Lotion in Medium – not as dark as a self- tanner (but if you have very light skin it will be a bit tan, but still a nice color). You can also use the lotion daily to build a deeper tan.  My teen wanted to try one of my self-tanner lotions so I had her test this glow lotion out as I felt better about the ingredients in this lotion -or should I say the ingredients not included:   it’s Vegan, NON GMO, Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Mineral Oil Free, Petrolatum Free, PEG Free, Butylene Glycol Free, Cruelty Free! How many self-tanners can say that? Plus it has vitamin E in it so it is very moisturizing.

I have to say I did not instruct her how to work a self-tan cream and she slathered it on and I thought, oh boy this is going to come out bad however it was even, there were no streaks and the next day it was a nice light tan shade.  She and I were pleased at the result!
