This month Elemis have launched their Total Glow Bronzing in perfect time for summer. I have been lucky enough to be testing the two products over the last couple of weeks – one is for face and one is for body!
I used these for the first time after a spa day at Pennyhill Park – my skin was warm and yet when I dressed less than 5 minutes after application – my skin was soft and smooth but not sticky or damp at all. The smell is clean and fresh – there is no implication from the scent that either of these products are tanners.
Both are designed for every day use – but I choose to use the face moisturiser over my regular moisturiser – this isn’t a necessity, just my preference as I like to use a daily SPF. The face moisturiser leaves the skin very smooth and is a perfect base for make-up.
The product testing
86% of testers reported a natural looking tan
88% of testers reported an increase in hydration
92% of testers reported that their skin felt nourished and conditioned
The key ingredients
Vegetan – The tan builder, naturally derived from wheat
Green Tea Extract and Ginger Water – Boosts antioxidant protection, and improves skintone
Evodia Fruit Extract – Brightens the skin, and boosts microcirculation
Rice Bran Oil – Naturally rich in Vitamin E which leaves skin soft and supple
My verdict –
These are high quality daily tanners, and the result is a natural, streak free tan. I would say if you want a dark tan – as I on occasion do – then this isn’t the correct product for you. This is ideal for those who want to naturally enhance their skin – with a little colour, hydration, and smoothness.
