Posh V Pinch: Body Bronzer




Bronzers are one of those beauty items that a lot of people ignore. During the colder months they see no reason to look tanned when the sun isn't burning into their bones and when its warm it's just assumed that a day out in shorts is enough to build the perfect tan. For us ladies that like to look tanned bronzers are a perfect way to debut bare legs once the temperature rises without having to hit a tanning booth. They can also be used to highlight and draw attention to specific areas of the face and body like cheekbones, décolleté and shins to give the appearance of slimmer legs.

After years of buying and trying out bronzers here are my picks for the best bronzing lotions in two price ranges.


Posh-$32


 Let's get straight to the point: this bronzer is perfection. I've tried many high end bronzers and the Lorac Tantalizer Bronzer is one I go back to time and time again. What I like the most about this bronzer is that it doesn't leave me looking like I got glitter bombed. This product is easy to apply and comes out thin enough to apply evenly without dripping. Another plus about this product is that it doesn't leave my legs looking shiny and wet like other high end bronzer that I've tried. It also doesn't melt off or leave stains on everything my skin touches once it's fully dry. It's not a huge tube for the price but if you're looking for something subtle but noticeable and have a bit more to spend this is the bronzer for you.

Pinch-$11

 
 L'Oreal's Sublime Bronze line has been a favorite of mine for many years. I discovered them when I was learning about skin care, skin tones, etc. and realized that the reason I always looked like the undead even though I have dark skin was because of my yellow undertone. The Sublime Bronze face and body bronzers helped me develop a love for a sun kissed glow! Fast forward to today and I'm still using them. The Luminous Bronzer is a great two in one because it'll help you develop a tan over time while giving you an instant glow. It has a bit more shimmer than LORAC's bronzer but is just as lasting and once fully dry it doesn't rub off on your clothes or anything else.
When I want to apply a bronzer, which is every time I know I'll be baring my arms and legs, I make sure to exfoliate my skin beforehand with my mix of Neutrogena's Body Clear Body Scrub and Ole Henriksen's Rub N' Buff Salt Scrub and purchased one of these foot wands specifically for using the brush part to make sure the Salicylic Acid and the essential oils of both products penetrate my skin. When my skin is nearly dry I mix my bronzer of choice with my body lotion and I'm left perfectly bronzed and moisturized.
