Product review: Australian Gold SPF 45 Sheer Coverage Faces Sunscreen with Instant Bronzer
A sunscreen, a tanner and an instant bronzer, because sometimes the sun needs a little assistance when it comes to tanning your skin.
Name 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.
The product contains Kakadu plum extract, a native Australian fruit with vitamin C.
