Achieve The Perfect Golden Glow With Million Dollar Tan

I love to use self tanning products in the summer.  I have very light skin and I try not to spend too much time in the sun.  A good self tanner is essential to a great glow in the summer time!

Million Dollar Tan recently sent me some products for my honest review.  I really enjoyed how easy they are to use.  Here are my faves:

Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face and Body Dark Sunless Tanning Mousse
Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face and Body Dark Sunless Tanning Mousse

Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face and Body  Dark Sunless Tanning Mousse ($74.00 for the pair, or purchase them separately) — Mermaid Mousse Extreme is a more intense, yet just as fabulous, version of our whipped tanning mousse. Still ultra-light and effortless to apply, it has an extra boost of color for those with darker skin tones or anyone wishing to be ultra-bronzed. Don’t let the word “extreme” scare you off—like all of our products, this mousse provides a gradual, buildable color that always looks natural. It’s also packed with vitamins and seriously hydrating moisturizers for enviably smooth, soft skin. Use it with our extreme face mousse for the rich all-over color you crave!

Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face is a deeper, richer, more intense version of our luxurious whipped face mousse. It’s perfect for anyone wishing to be ultra-tanned! We’ve added our revolutionary new FaceFirmTM Age Defense Super Pack, clinically proven to dramatically lift, firm and tone skin. This fabulously light formula won’t clog pores and is effortless to apply; you’ll have a stunningly irresistible glow in no time! Put your best face forward every day with this dazzling, multi-tasking mousse!

What I think: This dynamic duo has really given me a great summer glow!  This is a buildable color, so the first time I used it, I got a fair to medium tan.  But using it every day or every other day increased the color to a beautiful deep tan.  It is a creamy mousse that blends so well!

Million Dollar Tan Summer Sun

Summer Sun ($42 USD) has it all—it’s everything you need for gorgeous, summer-ready skin in one bottle! Based on our best-selling line of Mermaid Mousses, this amazingly light and airy mousse will give you an even, all-over tan that’s even darker and more luminous than our Extreme formulas. With rich, ultra-bronze tones and a natural sheen, you’ll have a perfect tan that will leave you wondering how you ever got through the summer without this product. SUMMER SUN also contains our exclusive TANlock technology, a proprietary blend of botanicals designed to make your tan last longer, stay more radiant and fade more evenly. And because no one wants to smell like sunless tanner, we’ve added Deoplex, a natural odor neutralizer that keeps tanning a totally fresh and revitalizing experience for all of your senses. Like all of our formulas, SUMMER SUN is completely natural and made with raw, organic DHA, so use it as often as you like for the best tan (and summer!) you’ve ever had!

What I think: Another easy to blend mousse, this one is perfect for those who want a darker tan that what you get with Mermaid Mousse Extreme. This is Million Dollar Tan’s newest mousse and it is as easy to use as their other products.  It’s just the thing when you need a darker tan quickly, instead of using a gradual tanner.

Million Dollar Tan All That Shimmers Dry Oil Shimmer
Million Dollar Tan All That Shimmers Dry Oil Shimmer

All That Shimmers Dry Oil Shimmer ($32 USD) — This amazing dry oil shimmer adds an extra bit of bronze sheen to your sunless tan, or use it on its own for just a touch of color and subtle luminosity. Hydrating botanicals pack a powerful, skin smoothing punch—even dull, dry skin becomes instantly refreshed and radiant. Perfectly shimmery and never glittery, it’s party-ready sheen that’s actually good for your skin! With a hint of bronzer and a bit of shimmer, you’ll dazzle in the sunlight or the limelight.

What I think: I usually don’t use a lot of shimmer on my body, but this is a very nice product.   It is easy to blend to add color and shimmer.  I like to apply it to legs, shoulders and décolletage.  It is nice for going out because it adds a glow to the skin.

Blend Friend Tanning Mitt Set
Blend Friend Tanning Mitt Set

Blend Friend Tanning Mitt Set ($24 USD) — Made with a one-of-a-kind micro-soft sponge material, this face and body mitt set is ultra soft and makes it easy to apply any sunless tanner, even in difficult or hard to reach areas. The special stretchy fabric and unique design allow you to comfortably place your hand inside the mitt for superior control over where and how much tanner you apply. The inner lining ensures that tanning product does not find it’s way to your hands, protecting your palms from becoming too tan. With separate mitts for the face and body, these are the only accessories you’ll need to have an even, smooth and perfectly blended sunless tan every time.

What I think:  I love these mitts!  They are easy to use, are so soft and blend like a dream!  The only thing is that if you use a lot of mousse with them, it does soak through a little.  But I just wash my hands afterwards and it doesn’t stain.

Going To A Holiday Party? Get Your Glam On!

Do you have any holiday parties or special dates coming up this season (like my anniversary tomorrow)?  I love dressing up my beauty routine for special occasions.  Glamorous makeup and nails, maybe a tan and a great perfume will make the occasion even brighter!

Below are my new glam faves. What are yours?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Vasanti Blush For Life The Wild Life Blush Duo ($29 USD) — The Wild Life is a glowing berry flush. Blush for Life Soft, blendable tone-on-tone blush duo designed to add a natural looking pop of colour to your skin. Perfect amount of pigments and soft sheens without the use of heavy shimmer or sparkle. Enriched with Vasanti’s unique Flower Power Complex that contains Lotus, Orchid and Evening Primrose with anti-oxidant and hydrating properties to help nourish your skin.

Vasanti Love Brights Gel Matte Lipstick Unconditional Love ($19 USD) — Deep Matte Orange with a touch of Coral. Beautiful. Bold. Long Lasting. Comfortable. Matte.  8 stunning shades developed to look beautiful on a wide range of skin tones.  Innovative formula with the perfect amount of moisture to keep lips comfortable while still offering long lasting color and a true matte appearance.  Infused with luxury ingredients such as Cherry, Pomegranate and Evening Primrose oils.

Both of these products are well pigmented and very pretty on.  I like that the blush is not glittery and a little goes a long way.  You can use one color or blend them both together.  The lipstick is a little too bright for me, but it is very moisturizing for being matte.

Million Dollar Tan

Million Dollar Tan Mermaid Mousse ($42 USD) is ultra-lightweight and easy to apply. It gives a subtle instant bronze color, with a deep, gorgeous tan developing over the next few hours. The light-as-air formula soaks in effortlessly, and hydrating botanicals provide serious skin nourishment. Signature Million Dollar Tan color gives a gradual, buildable tan that always looks natural.  

Million Dollar Tan Mermaid Mousse Face ($40 USD) is the perfect companion to the all-over whipped tanning mousse. It’s also a great stand-alone beauty staple for any glamorous gal who wants a radiant, bronze complexion year-round. The lightweight formula simply melts into skin and won’t clog pores. Revolutionary new FaceFirm Age Defense Super Pack is clinically proven to dramatically lift, firm and tone skin.

These are both very easy to apply to give some color during the cold winter months.  I know my skin gets so pale this time of year.  They dry quickly, which is a plus and you can dress fairly quickly after applying.  Just like in the summer,  don’t forget to exfoliate before tanning!

Xs Black by Paco Rabanne for Women Eau De Toilette ($57.99 for 2.7 oz) –This tangy fruit is packed with vitamins and nutrients, and the bare scent of cranberry is much more sharp than sweet. As the weather gets colder, bid adieu to light, fresh scents that are perfect for warmer months and go for a stronger, heavier fragrance that opens with a tart note of cranberry and blooms in fullness with powerful woody, floral and musky notes.

This is a sexy scent perfect for date night.  It is a heavier fragrance, which is nice to have for fall and winter.
