Today is the perfect day to talk about the rest of my favorite sunless tanning products. It's 100 degrees outside, I can barely walk to the corner to get an ice cream cone let alone thinking about going to the beach. Why go to the beach when you can "look" like you did without all the fuss. That's why I love Stila Sun Gel. It's a lightweight gel that can be applied over moisturizer or a light foundation for a nice natural glow. If you like a little "bling" then you'll love Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15. This moisturizer not only protects you from the sun but is formulated with 24kt gold. The gold has antibacterial and anti-oxidant properties that illuminate the skin and give it a nice sheen.

If you have more oily skin or want to set your bronzing foundation or moisturizer I recommend several powder bronzers. I have had a similar experience with powder bronzers as with self-tanning products- they can leave you looking orange. It is important to find a shade that is more golden and has more sheer texture.My first pick is Giorgio Armani Sheer Bronzer in Golden Sand. It ha a micro-fine texture and sheer buildable coverage. My second pick is Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Bronzer. It not only is a universal bronze shade that works for every skin tone but it reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just ten minutes! It has over 48 minerals and a patented hydrating system. It's to die for!
