Keep your faux tan looking perfect with Norvell

There isn’t much left of summer so I am just clinging to these beautiful warm days. Self tanner always keeps me in the ‘sunshine and beaches’ mood. Recently I found a pretty amazing system for prepping my skin for self tanner and keeping the faux tan I already have looking perfect.
Keep your faux tan looking perfect with Norvell
Norvell is a spa line that specializes in body products that make the most of a self-tan. They have interesting products that prime the skin, bronze to perfection, optimize a self tan, and enhance the final color. Every product is paraben free, gluten-free, and 100% vegan. Each product also has Norvell’s Natural Actives Sunless Complex™, which Norvell says is “a proprietary blend of natural ingredients combined together to optimize, build, and extend sunless tanning results like never before.”
They sent me some products to test, and I am loving the  Renewing Sunless Exfoliator™ ($15),  pH Balancing Shower Cleanser ($15), and Daily Replenishing 24 hr MOISTURIZER™ ($25).

 The Renewing Sunless Exfoliator™ is a gentle body polish that Norvell calls a “Mr. Clean Eraser” for the body. This minty smelling polish is the first step to prepping skin for a great self tan.
  • Time Release Micro Capsules bind moisture within the skin, for 24 hr hydration.
  • Unique Dermal Barrier locks moisture within the top layer of skin, priming it for longer lasting and deeper sunless results.
  • Sulfate Free/Soap Free formula gently cleanses without stripping the skin’s amino acids, which work directly with the active sunless ingredient, DHA, to produce self-tanning results.

Sulfates can strip the skin so this sulfate-free exfoliator is a terrific prep for sunless tanning. I use this first in the shower, concentrating on my elbows, knees, and feet.

After exfoliating, I follow with the pH Balancing Shower Cleanser. This shower gel smells of delicious vanilla and leaves my skin cleansed and moisturized.

  • Time Release Micro Capsules bind moisture within the skin, for 24-hr hydration.
  • Natural Enzymes repair dehydrated skin.
  • Unique Dermal Barrier locks moisture within the top layer of skin, while optimizing skin pH for longer lasting deeper sunless results.
  • Sulfate Free/Soap Free formula gently cleanses without stripping the skin’s amino acids, which work directly with the active sunless ingredient, DHA, to produce self-tanning results

The enzymes help to dissolve any leftover dead skin and the extra skin hydration helps any type of sunless tanner apply evenly and last longer.

The Daily Replenishing 24 hr MOISTURIZER™ is like “Old English” wood polish for your body! It’s a beautiful body lotion that smells fresh and a little fruity. I love how soft it makes my skin, plus it also does all this:
  • Time Release Micro Capsules hold and bind moisture within the skin, providing 24hr hydration.
  • Natural Enzymes repair weak, dehydrated skin and promote the efficiency of the body’s own natural moisture levels.
  • Natural Botanicals and Antioxidants combat skin aging caused by environmental exposure and free radicals.
  • Sunless Safe Formula will not pre-maturely fade sunless color.
  • Vitamin Blend replenishes the skins natural moisturization factor.
Perfect skin makes for a perfect self tan, and the exoliation and hydration I get from these products makes all my self tanning efforts really pay off. Now that I’ve tried the products for priming and optimizing, I can’t wait to try Norvell’s self tanners! In the meantime I can hang on to my summer memories with perfectly primed and moisturized skin.
