Today I have another quick review for you on a Birchbox product I received.
I will leave the link for my July Birchbox post in case you missed it.
I’ll be honest. When I first saw this in my box I was a little worried. All I saw was the word “tan” in capital letters. I instantly thought this would be a tanning lotion. I don’t nor have I ever self tanned before and I always give tanning products away when I receive them.
Thankfully, this is not a tanning lotion. Here is a description of the product.
Made with 80 percent aloe vera, and an irresistible coconut and key lime scent, it seals in moisture to preserve your tan and prevent flaking or fading.
The description is super detailed, but I think the point is made. If you keep your skin moisturized and lock in that moisture, your skin won’t flake and your tan won’t fade. Makes sense.
Can you use it even if you don’t self tan? I don’t see why not.
I’ve kept this in my hand bag and use it when my hands get dry.
It is moisturizing without being greasy or heavy feeling. It doesn’t make my skin feel super soft like other lotions do, but there’s no doubt that the moisture is restored.
It has a soft scent of mostly coconut and key lime which is delicious!
The scent doesn’t irritate me at all unless I hold my hands up to my nose for an extended period of time (which I don’t do!!) It is so subtle, I forget about it moments after application. It doesn’t bring any irritation to my skin, it will just give me a little headache if I get a good whiff of it.
I think this is a great product for the summer. The scent instantly takes me on a tropical island getaway and is good for my skin too!
This sells for $12.50 for 6 fluid oz.
Have you tried this product out? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Have a beautiful and wonderful day everyone!
