As soon as our sweaters and jackets come off, we’re on the lookout for a bronzer. Not for our face, that one’s easy and we have about 50 powder, cream and gel options to prove it too. Nope. We’re talking about a bronzer for our lily-white body, especially our legs, which could rival Casper any day of the year.
Sun Bum Premium Sunscreen Lotion With Instant Bronzer Broad Spectrum SPF15 is our latest fix. Its vegan formula is fueled with organic coconut oil, Kona coffee extract and aloe vera to give us the smooth and hydrating sun-kissed glow we’re seeking. Plus, it contains a broad spectrum SPF 15, so that we can block the sun’s harsh UVA (think age-inducing, like wrinkles and fine lines) and UVB (think burning, like, the horrible red patches of skin that flare up when you forget to apply sunscreen) rays while we’re getting our glow on. Which, BTW, doesn’t smear or rub off on our clothes or sheets.
All we have to do is exfoliate our body and shave our legs in the shower (this helps with the lotion’s even application and bronzing efficacy), towel dry off and get started. Then, we shake the container well, place a quarter-size amount in our hands, emulsify the formula between our hands and rub it wherever we want a touch of natural-looking colour. Word to the wise, we like to let it sink in for about 15 minutes before we get dressed and head outdoors so that we have maximum sunshine protection.
