Beautisol self tanner

Why am I so obsessed with self-tanners?  I guess it’s because really good ones can transform my look overnight.  When I have faux-tanned, I feel thinner.  My skin tone evens out, and looks pretty good even without foundation.  Plus, having a bit of a tan helps me to fantasize about summer during these cold winter months.

I probably have about 20 self-tanners, all from different companies.  I am constantly looking for that perfect self-tanner – one that doesn’t stink like crazy, that has a guide color so it’s easy to apply, that doesn’t go on all streaky, that dries fast, and that gives a natural looking color to my skin.  Not too much to ask, right??  I like self-tanners with shimmer for the body, but for my face, I need something that doesn’t break me out and that looks totally realistic.

Beautisol has a new face self-tanner.  In fact, the one I tried was specifically for 0ily skin, called Need I Glow More? (Oily) ($26).  How cool is that?  I love products that multi-task, and this one is genius.  It’s skin care – it helps absorb oil and prevent acne – and it’s a self-tanner.  They also have self-tanner for normal to dry skin types.

I only had a small sample bottle of this, so I was able to try it about three times.  While I wish I could have tried it out for a longer period of time, I was extremely impressed with what I had.  There is a slight scent, but it’s not offensive in the least.  The self-tanner has a guide color, so it’s easy to see where it’s been applied.  I never ended up with streaks, and I loved the color.  I went from white girl to golden brown girl over night.  Here I am before, the foundation I am wearing is FACE atelier in #2, Ivory:

And here is the very next morning after applying Need I Glow More? the night before.  I had to go with one of my darker foundations, Make Up Forever Face and Body in #34, Honey Beige:

I did notice that my oily skin seemed a little less so the day after I applied this, but I would have to test it longer to give a definitive answer on this area.  I definitely loved the golden brown, natural looking color it gave me.  It was just enough color to make me look healthy, not so much that people wondered if I had fallen asleep in a tanning bed.

I was impressed with my trial of Beautisol’s Need I Glow More? moisturizer/self-tanner.  If you are in the market for a multi-tasking product that can make your skin soft and tan, check this one out.  – Lisa
