Product Review: Australian Gold SPF 45 Sheer Coverage Faces Sunscreen with Instant BronzerName of product:

Australian Gold SPF 45 Sheer Coverage Faces Sunscreen with Instant Bronzer (walgreens.com, $9)

What the product claims to do:

Acts as a self-tanner that builds gradually within two to three days while instantly bronzing the skin.

How it worked for me:

The water-resistant sunscreen kept my skin from burning and gave me an instant glow.

How this product looks and feels:

The product is a smooth, peach/tan colored lotion that goes on without residue.

What I liked about this product:

It smells great, has an SPF of 45 and it is hypoallergenic.

Describe the application process, how often you used the product and for how long:

Apply the product evenly over face and body 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapplication is suggested every 80 minutes.

Describe the results you saw:

A hint of bronze on my limbs within three hours, no burns from sun exposure.

I would recommend this product for:

Women and men looking to tan in natural sun (while spending a considerable amount of time conducting outdoor fall activities or simply walking to/from work, from the car to their destination or exercising outside).

How I felt about the scent of this product:

It smells amazing and tropical.

Additional comments:

The product contains Kakadu plum extract, a native Australian fruit with vitamin C.
