Just this past week the story broke that skin cancer is the number one form of cancer in the U.S. As someone who has had family members who have battled skin cancer (and survived) and one that did not (she passed 3 months after learning she had melanoma), I take this so very seriously. While I do love to hang out at the beach with my 4 sons donning SPF 30 sunscreen, I definitely know my limit on sun exposure. Which, of course, results in me looking unusually pale compared to my sun kissed friends and family. To fake that summer glow, I turn to sunless tanners and Cover FX’s Skin Tint and Radiant FX Bronzer.
Skin Tint: This is a great oil-free tinted moisturizer. The best part is that it is sweat-proof, which is quite the lifesaver on humid days here in the Poconos. It also has an SPF of 30, so while you’re sporting a sunless glow, you are still protecting your skin when you are out in the actual sunshine. The Skin Tint comes in a variety of colors, which is great because one-bronzer-color does not fit all, as I am sure you will agree.
Radiant FX: This is a great all-over powder. So not only can you use it to accent your face, you can lightly sweep it across your arms, legs, etc. as well. It doesn’t look overdone and it certainly is not glitter-looking either (such as the case was with L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronzer). For those of you allergic to talc, you’ll be happy to know that Radiant FX is talc-free (as well as fragrance-free, paraben-free and oil-free.) The powder is super lightweight and while the Golden Bronze color may look a bit dark, especially if you are as light skinned as I am, there isn’t a stark contrast of color when you apply it to your skin. Just simply natural looking with a bit of shimmer.
