Have you ever hesitated to wear shorts, skirts, or capris in the summer because you were afraid the light reflecting from your legs would blind someone? I have that problem nearly every year. No one has gone blind (that I know of) yet but I still play out the scenario in my mind. I love going to the beach and try to get there at least once a week.
What I don’t love is the sun.
I slather on sunblock and make sure I keep it on whenever I’m outside. The sheer thought of the ‘M‘ word terrifies me. Melanoma is a serious issue and can be prevented. I do my part but I do pay the price (read: my skin lacks that golden bronzed tan look.) Luckily there are other options besides spending hours laying in the sun and risking UV damage.
I received the following products for editorial consideration.
Jessica Robertson XOXO Collection- Facial Bronzer – This exclusive formula contains two key ingredients: Tripeptide-5 and Melitane. Tripeptide-5 helps give a youthful, refreshed appearance by minimizing pores and fine lines. Melitane induces skin pigmentation, strengthens the skin’s defenses against UV rays and reduces sunburn and inflammation. Oil and fragrance free, it goes on light and sheer for a natural, radiant finish. 3.4oz bottle retails for $28.00 at www.drsuncosmetics.com or your local tanning salon.
Jessica Robertson Collection American Legs-Leg Bronzer – You’ve worked hard getting your legs tight and taught for bikini season. Highlight every hard earned muscle with a leg bronzer that gives skin a firming and tightening boost, not to mention gorgeous natural color in just hours. Its special sensory silicone base leaves skin soft and moisturized, inhibits hair growth, and has a delicious coconut scent. 3.4 oz bottle retails for $28.00 at www.drsuncosmetics.com or your local tanning salon.
I found these to be great solutions for my lack of summer tan. I can use them year-round to keep a hint of color. I especially love the difference between these products and other at-home tanners. There is no funky smell (these actually smell yummy!) and there is no overwhelming orange coloring.
If you’re avoiding sun exposure but still crave a glowing bronzed tan then be sure to try these!
Jessica Robertson Collection Facial Bronzing Powder ($15.00 at www.drsuncosmetics.com or your local tanning salon) – This 3-in-1 bronzer has just the right amount of color and moisture to keep your skin glowing all year-round. The tinted powder offers a sheer, natural color while conditioning your ski and providing a smooth application. Use it to accent and contour cheekbones for amazing definition. Includes case and a brush.
Jessica Robertson Collection Lip Gloss ($7.00 at www.drsuncosmetics.com) – These rich, creamy lip glosses go on smooth and are available in six colors: Cherry Red, Nude, Peach Mango, Iced Mocha, Berry, and Cotton Candy. They have a very nice smell and no funky taste (because that’s important!)
I’m a super fan of the fun, highly textured tubes!
Jessica Robertson Nail Polish Collection – ($7.99 at www.drsuncosmetics.com) The perfect way to compliment your new sunless tan. These polishes are available in 16 colors. They’re not just for summer!
