If you know me, I am always on the hunt for a good self-tanner! My most recent find as been so good! For the past two weeks, I have been trying out Golden Star Beauty Self Tanning line! The best part about this line is that you can find it on Amazon with 2-day shipping! AND I have an awesome discount code Justginger for yall to get 15% your purchase on their website and on Amazon! So let's chat self-tanner!
Self-tanning Dry Oil
Unlike most popular self-tanners, GSB tanners come in lotion and oil form! I use the self-tanning oil and I am in love with it! My first impression of the oil was about the smell. Most self-tanners have that distinct smell that is unpleasant, but everything from GSB smells AMAZING! Oh my goodness, I was so amazed when I first opened the bottle because the smell of the organic oils smells sweet and tropical. There is no overbearing chemical smell because there are no harsh chemicals! The dry oil is made of jojoba oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil, evening primrose oil, organic extracts, hyaluronic acid, and moisturizers! Normally my skin starts to feel super dry the next morning after applying tanners, but with all of the good ingredients in this oil, my skin still feels super soft and moisturized.
As far as color goes, it is such a natural bronzed look! The oil has no guide color so I definitely think that helps the color appear more natural! I apply mine at night and sleep in it and shower in the morning (aka stand there and let the water wash off the excess). You can leave the oil on for up to 24hr for max color, but being a redhead, sleeping in it leaves me with the perfect glowing tan! Another plus of this formula is that it doesn't streak! I use a regular self-tanning application mitt and spray the oil on my body and use the mitt to rub it in! I also love that it doesn't fade splotchy or rub off on my clothes or sheets!
Self-tanning Facial Serum
Next in my self-tanning line up is the facial serum! Normally I don't self tan my fave, but with this serum, it makes it so easy too! Not to mention the ingredients in the serum are just as amazing as the tanning oil! It has hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and rosehip oil! All of these work together to leave your skin moisturized and even have anti-aging properties! How many self-tanning facial serums can do that?? OH AND it smells just as amazing as the oil! There is no overwhelming self-tanner smell!
Tan Extender Lotion
The last step in my self-tanning routine is applying tan extender lotion! Just like the rest of the products, the tan extender has Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Oils (Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil), Hyaluronic Acid And Vitamins B2, B5, and B12! All of these work to extend the life of your tan up to three days! I also love the smell and how moisturizing it is! All of these products are organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the USA!
