I just LOVE it! I'm really fairskinned and this product gives me just the right tan (you can't see a difference between my face and the rest... but I seem less pale...) and on top of that it gives a really nice glow... I giggled at the name and I loved the packaging as I always love the Soap and Glory packaging...
I love this product! It is so great for moisturising and it gives you a natural bronzed look. Definitely going to buy again xxx
I have spent years looking for an illuminating lotion-slash-tinted moisturizer that would do the trick for day, lending what Truman Capote called "a breakfast cereal air of health". I have tried TM's by Laura Mercier, Lavera, Boots, Smashbox, MAC, Stila, and BeneFit. I have tried illuminating lotions by Nivea, Aveeno, MAC and Clarins. This is EXACTLY what I was searching for. Gives a marvellous natural glow and suits even my fair-to-medium skin with no orange Ompa Loompa tidemark. Used with a touch of Clarins concelear and a light sweep of pink powder blush and mascara this is a staple for what the French term "le No-Makeup Look". Be sure to break all the bronze bead-thingys i=on the back of your hand prior to applying. A hard-working, economical treat of a product. I plan to buy 10 tubes prior to returning to Canada.
I picked this up in Boots after seeing a few good reviews - it was half price when I bought it.
Initially I loved this product, I used it for a week every morning and if going out on an evening, it gave me a subtle glow and it also contains these little particles which burst and reveal bronzer, again very subtle and made the skin look lovely. Consistency is a little thicker than a moisturiser, so I decided to use less moisturiser then add a little of this over the top.
However, after 5 days I started getting a few spots, didn't think anything of it initially as I am prone to the odd breakout - although after 3 days of waking up to a few more spots I decided to stop using it. I stopped getting spots 2 days later. Thinking this maybe coincidence (due to eating loads of rubbish over the festive period washed down by copious amounts of booze!!!) I started using it again, within 2 days I had another mini break out, followed by a few more, so I stopped using immediately and the break out has cleared up.
This would be an excellent product - however the spots just aren't worth it - steer clear if you prone to the odd breakout!!
Love this product, it smooths onto skin lovely, has a lovely light scent and I love the bronzing bubbles which burst on impact with skin , I think this is a lovely moisturizer touse when you feel 'pasty' as it gives your skin a light tint, I would definitely not be without this from now on.
I just bought this product two days ago. I used it and I really like it. I'm just wondering are you not supposed to wear make up on top of it? I mean I get that that kind of defeats the purpose of it being a bronzer if you're gonna put make up on top of it anyway. I just feel like it's not enough coverage for my skin. Or can I put on concealer first then apply this? Any suggestions would be helpful!
I wanted to buy this because I felt like my Clinique moisturizer does nothing for my skin when Im hungover.. and well the cheeky name is also very intriguing (everyone wants a good glowjob!). Well, I'm NC30, and this moisturizer does nothing for me as well. Good moisturizer, but I'll stick with my Clinique.
Verdict: I think this would only work for fair-skinned individuals.
When i look pale I use this product - I am a man so do not use make up , foundations or self tans as they look very unnatural generally. But this product is an exception. I put it over my moisturizer and rub it into my hands before applying it to my face (this is really importants to dissolve the beads of colour in the product) . I look so much healthier when I use this and no one knows it's a cream - the smell is subtle and my face really glows . It does the job !
I think if you have perfect skin it would work well. Also watch out, if you don't break every little ball in your fingers, you get a surprise brown steak which can be blended away but still. Just seemed like a lot more work than it needed to be.
I was so skeptical about this product. Am NW15-20 and most bronzers look awful on me, orange and unatural. But this was great, a slight - I just came back from a walk in the sun - glow that builds up nicely. Am a little confounded by the whole bead thing but I learned to start with a very small amount and build up for a natural, healthy glow - as promised for once!!!
