Let's talk about self tanning, especially since Winter is right around the corner. I hate the idea of laying out and baking in the sun or going to tanning beds (please tell that to my younger self). Since turning 30, I have been trying to find beauty products that are green and contain non-toxic ingredients. I have used self tanners in the past and despised the smells and left you with orange skin.
I was thrilled with Golden Beauty reached out to me and offered me to try their self tanner. I had never heard of this brand before, so I did my research and loved that they advertise their products being cruelty free, gluten free, paraben free, dyes free, and vegan.
I received my products in the mail and was anxious to get started. I was hesitant before applying the self tanner because I got the image of looking like an Oompa-Loompa stuck in my head, LOL.
Before I went to bed, I applied the self tanner for the body. I had never used a mitt before in applying self tanners, so I decided to use this one since it came with the product. OMG - how that changed the applying process. The mitt made it so easy to apply over my legs and arms. The self tanner went on like a lotion and you just rub it in.
I then applied the self tanner for the face. I also had a smaller mitt for face application. The self tanner is oily and went on like butter.
Once I applied the self tanner, I put on my pajamas and went to bed - hoping not to wake up looking orange.
I woke up the next morning and was hesitant to look in the mirror - haha! But when I did, I was pleasantly surprised that I had a nice golden glow. I immediately fell in love with this product, especially only after one use.
Not only was it easy to apply, but I didn't have any streaks or orange color. It also has a pleasant smell, unlike some of the other tanners I have used in the past.
I have continued to use Golden Beauty self tanner for several months now and love the coloring it gives. If you are in the market for a new self tanner you should definitely check this product out!
