Tan, Baby, Tan (Giveaway!)

For some, summer = laying out on the beach for hours.

That's not me. I am super pale, freckly, and burn to a crisp almost instantly. "Wear sunscreen!" people will tell me. I do. I still burn. I think my fair complexion it comes from my Polish genetics. And to be honest, I'm really scared of skin cancer so I try to avoid too many rays. But that doesn't mean I love I don't love golden bronzed skin in the warmer months so I have no other choice but to fake it til I make it. 

I have tried so many different options to get the tanned look through out the years. Tanning beds still pose the risk of cancer and expose your skin to premature aging. And spray tans are messy and expensive. So lately I find myself reaching for self-tanners. If you think they all make you orange and stinky, I'm very happy to say that you are mistaken! They have gotten so much better than they used to be! 

When Traci from Rodan +Fields contacted me about trying their self tanner I was so very excited! Rodan + Fields are the same people that make Proactiv, which I swore by when I was dealing with annoying teenage acne. The formula is a foam spray which makes it really easy to apply, just make sure to exfoliate first for even application. And I really enjoy the way it smells, even after a few hours after putting it on. The foam absorbs very quickly and I haven't had an issue with product transfer onto my all-white sheets or my clothes. 

I have been using it for a couple weeks now and I saw a difference right after my first application but the colour was nice and gradual so there's almost no chance of patchiness. The bottle is supposed to last 2-6 months which is perfect for getting me through the end of summer and then some! It's no wonder that it came in as the top self tanning product by TotalBeauty!

Other than the sunless tanner, R+F has various other skincare lines which target the most common skincare concerns. They have products for sensitivity (my #1 issue!), acne, sun damage, and wrinkles.   Here's a fun tool to help determine your ideal skincare routine. The regimens last an average of 2-3 months and preferred customers get 10% off and free shipping.  Rodan + Fields also offers a 60 day money back guarantee if you're not happy and there's a discount (woo!) if you choose to be a consultant yourself. 

As promised, I have a giveaway for you guys to try out the sunless tanner. Traci is also throwing in a mini facial for my readers because y'all are simply the best. Enter in the Rafflecopter window below!
