I admit it…I am missing summer already. I am just a summer girl. I love the beach and the fresh air. I love glowing, sun-kissed skin. I miss it…so I am getting my summer fix from Rayito de Sol.
I had heard fantastic things about this line, which just happens to be the top sun care brand in Latin America. So I was very intrigued when they sent the BIZ their 2-in-1 Sport Bronzing Sunscreen Gel SPF 15 ($14.99) to test.
Rayito de Sol is based in Argentina and it’s a family owned company that has been in business for over 90 years. This line is available in 15 different countries including the U.S., Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Paraguay. Rayito de Sol specializes in products that instantly create that ‘iconic Latin glow’. They are the first line with products that give immediate color plus SPF protection. They have wonderful looking products like lotions and sprays and I was happy to try the gel.
The 2-in-1 Sport Bronzing Sunscreen Gel SPF 15 I tried is the Instant Medium Color. It also comes in Natural Color, which I am assuming is a lighter shade. The initial swatch looked soooo dark, I was a bit alarmed…but it definitely lightened up when I smoothed it in. My skin tone is somewhere in between light and medium, and this gel gives me a slightly deeper color with a lot more ‘glow’ than I normally have. The gel has an interesting texture that is quite pleasant. It has lots of slip at first and it feels slightly wet for a few minutes before drying down completely. Plus it has a cooling effect that lasts for about 20 minutes. I use it on both my face and body with excellent results.
Even if it’s no longer summer, we all still need sunscreen. Why not get a beautiful Latin glow while you are at it? All the wonderful things I read about this line were true, I was not disappointed. They’ve got the goods and I can’t wait to try the other products. And some really great news – right now there is a 50% off coupon for online orders – just use the code 50off at checkout. Keep that summer glow and stay protected from those harmful rays with Rayito de Sol! - Lisa
