I love to have a natural and subtle glow and have had the hardest time finding a self-tanning face product that doesn’t cause my skin to break out.  I have tried so many and have come to the conclusion that I’d rather have clear skin than a tan.  Do any of you feel this way too?  Let’s face it, no one wants their face to be broken out, streaked, and orange!  Not. A. Good. Look.

I have been using Tax Luxe The Body for several months now and love it because it’s customizable and easy.   You can read more about it here. I recently had the chance to try Tan Luxe The Face drops thanks to @Tan_Luxe.   I was skeptical, nervous, and trying to be hopeful.  I decided to try it during the day so I could wash my face after 4 hours just in case.

With this product you can add as little or as much as you want to your own moisturizer and it develops over the course of the day.  The more drops the deeper the color.  I added 2 drops to my Lancome Moisturizer SPF 30  rubbed it in my hands, blended it over my face and neck and then put on my makeup for the day.  At the end of the day, I was pleasantly surprised.  It gave my face a sun-kissed natural looking glow with no breakouts.

A little side bar, I have finally fully switched to using a moisturizer ever morning that contains sunscreen.  When I was younger I rarely wore sunscreen and not only did I use tanning machines, I also worked at a tanning salon in high school.  I consider myself lucky to not look like the lady in There’s Something About Mary.  Every year when it comes time for my yearly dermatologist appointment I get really nervous.  If you aren’t wearing sunscreen daily, start now.  You will thank yourself later.

Do you have a go-to face tanner or moisturizer with sunscreen?  If so, let us know in the comments section.  I hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. I use my Rodan + Fields sunless, foaming tanner. It can be used all over the body including your face. It doesn’t turn your skin orange and is super easy to apply due to the foaming nature of the product!
