Keep Your Faux Glow With Beautisol!

Hello beauties! I was excited to try the newest product from Beautisol; a facial self tanner called Need I Glow More? You may remember that I flipped for Beautisol’s  99% Pure Peptide Rescue Serum, I loved the results I got! As you know, I am a big proponent of self tanners since I found two pre-cancerous spots on my legs last summer and had to have them burned off and now have lovely scars.  Please, please beauties no tanning beds or excessive sun exposure! I am so regretting the time I spent tanning/burning in the sun in my teens. Lecture over, let’s move on.

Need I Glow More? is the first EVER skin type specific face self-tanner. It comes in two formulas; one for normal, oily or problematic skin and one for normal, dry or sensitive skin.  I tried the one for normal to dry skin. This formula contains Passion Flower, Squalane and an innovative anti-aging peptide, Chronoline™ to help retain the skin’s moisture content, combat inflammation and help prevent the signs of aging while gently developing a natural looking tan.

This lightweight gel doesn’t feel like a self tanner—it feels more like a hydrating skincare serum and spreads and absorbs very easily. Beautisol uses an odor eliminating technology called Pure Scent which reduces the DHA smell by 80% and wow! you can really notice a difference—no stinky smell! I didn’t even have to apply foundation or powder; I can see using this instead of a tinted moisturizer this summer, eliminating one more product!

The first time I used it, I put maybe 10-12 stripes of tanner on my face in strategic places and blended with my fingers. The result was too much—my color was not even nor well placed—totally operator error. The next time I used Need I Glow More? I applied probably 5 stripes and again blended with my fingers. The next morning I had a very natural light tan– like I had spent a few minutes in the sun. Lucky for me Beautisol includes an instruction card and tips on how to prep before using the self tanner. Uh, I should have read this before I tried the product—duh! Here are the easy peasy (if you read the card) instructions:

  1. Squeeze on fingertips and apply to face like war paint to forehead, cheeks, chin and nose.
  2. Massage into skin using circular movements until product is evenly distributed.
  3. Blend into hairline, behind the ears and below the jaw line.

 Prep:

  • If you need to wax your upper lip or do other waxing do it before.
  • Make sure to exfoliate to prevent getting a blotchy application.
  • Apply a small amount of face lotion to eyebrows and hairline if needed to prevent discoloration. I only did this on my eyebrows.
  • Wear gloves or wash your hands right away. I washed my hands and had no discoloration whatsoever.
  • It’s best to apply the self tanner at night, at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
  • Use a Q-tip to remove excess product from eyebrows or dark spots. This was a very important step for me because I do have some sun spots and I never would have thought of doing this myself. The tanner will make dark spots darker so if you have sun damage like me, DO THIS—it works.

Some of the anti-aging benefits:

   
ChroNOline™: A cutting-edge anti-aging peptide that helps to boost collagen production which makes the skin looks smoother and more youthful looking.    
     
 Squalane: Derived from olives to retain moisture. Protective and increases skin’s natural barrier function.  
 Honeysuckle Flower Extract: Anti-inflammatory properties and rich in flavanoids and saponins. Vitamin E: An antioxidant superstar! Protects the epidermis from early stages of UV damage and helps prevent free-radical damage. Beautisol Need I Glow More is Paraben-Free, Propylene Glycol-Free, and Cruelty-Free (PETA certified).
