GIVEAWAY // Win a Sun Glow Duo Self-Tanning Set from Skin Authority (+ My Personal Review)


GIVEAWAY // Win a Sun Glow Duo Self-Tanning Set from Skin Authority and Bubby & Bean!

Back in the day, I used to slather myself in suntan oil and literally bake in the sun in an effort to get a 'bronze glow' (which, on several occasions, resulted instead in a miserable red burn).  I even visited the the tanning bed from time to time.  Thankfully, I eventually accepted the fact that as much as I loved a tan in the summertime, I was taking the unhealthy route to get there.  Since then, if I'm going to be outside under a hot sun, I've used sunscreen.  And if I want a sun-kissed look, I've opted for self tanner.  Unfortunately though, as we all know, self tanners can be tricky, and more times than not end up leaving you a streaky, orange mess. I've learned that a lot of times, this unwanted effect is caused by a build up of dead skin.  So when the folks over at Skin Authority asked if I wanted to try their new Sun Glow Duo, which includes a special exfoliating cleanser to prevent streakiness (and is vegetarian!), I was all about it.

I'd just been in Arizona so my normally pasty pale skin did have a tiny head start, but my legs needed a boost.  So although I used the Sun Glow Duo on my entire body, I concentrated on my legs.  Over a period of a couple of weeks, I first applied the Exfoliating Cleanser, then the Sunless Tanner.  The Exfoliating Cleanser worked wonders, both on my face and my body, removing dead skin cells with its natural pumice and sugar cane derived exfoliators.  My skin felt all sorts of soft.  The Sunless Tanner went on smoothly, lacked that awful artificial tanning scent (thank goodness), and absorbed quickly.  It also moisturized my skin, and provided help in fighting free radical damage with its Vitamin C and E formula.  And I love that it contains no fragrances, parabens, or harmful dyes.  Within an hour of the first appplication, I started to see a nice tan color.  After using the Duo every few days for two weeks, I had a rich tan that was even and natural looking. I'm looking forward to using it on a regular basis as summertime approaches. (The Sun Glow Duo is available for purchase from April 1 through June 30, 2014.)

  23. Liked them on facebook! This is perfect timing because I'm pregnant and have been looking for a safe way to get some color without baking outside or loading up my skin with chemicals.I feel like a nice tan will help hide some of this extra 30 lbs and feel a little better in shorts this summer - nothing can give a blow to your self esteem quite like being massively pregnant and then having post baby body all during the warm months. I need whatever help I can get! :)
