In the Summer time I feel like it is nice to have a glow I try and stir away from tanning under the sun as it’s super harmful for the skin so I opt for fake tans and sun kissed glows. I feel like a lot of people around me also love being bronzed, I know a few people who use tanning beds and love a good sun lounger abroad. However the sun and sun beds are so damaging to our skin and we don’t even notice. We avoid listening to advice of not going on sun beds as some people see the opinion of if it isn’t illegal I can’t be that bad. People using an extremely low SPF because they feel it blocks you from getting a tan. Well today I’m bringing you another option for getting that sun warmth I crave. Recently I was contacted by the lovely company DECIEM The Abnormal Beauty Company. They are a umbrella company which home lots of different brands who supply makeup, skin care and hair care plus a lot more. I had a wonderful meeting with one of their consultants where I was talked through lots of different products from what they do and how beneficial they are! I was then very kindly sent a huge parcel of products to try out, all of which I am in love with.
Lots of the products where all incredible ones which give you a glow because honestly I like to look like I’ve been away even if I haven’t. I find that sun kissed look a lot sexier than my white/see through legs showing off my true blue veins lol (pale girls I know you feel me here). I’ve been using all these products for around 3-4 weeks now as I wanted to keep using them to give you the full low down on the product themselves.
Lets start with my favourite of them all and this is a product I’d been after for such a long time but never could find one that full appealed to me or suit my porcelain skin. It’s the Hylamide Photography Foundation, it looks like a liquid highlighter but oh how it does just so much more for your skin. It is super hydrating so it helps to keep skin looking plump and healthy. It also reduces to look of pores and fine lines due to the silica based prisms, creating light from within and basically bounces natural light of your face in a beautifully photoshopped way. I’ve been wearing this underneath my foundation and how I’ve noticed such a difference, I look more awake and brightened but my skin has this beautiful dewy effect when caught in the light and it doesn’t react badly to my oil skin at all. Over all this product is a complete winner. I haven’t tried it alone by it’s self but the lovely Laura from DECIEM said it can be worn alone, so I think I’ll have to try this for a strobing look.
Next is the Hylamide Glow Radiance Booster, this I use before the foundation and mix around three-four drops in with my moisturiser. This product is similar to a fake tan as the amino acids within the product react with your skin causing a tanning effect but with the negative effect of a facial tanner. This isn’t streaky nor does it have that sour smell of tan. It simply brings beautiful glow to your face and very slightly brings some warmth into your cheeks. I use this products 3 days running and then after I use it every three days just to keep up my glow and so far I’ve been loving it. I can especially see my glow when I look back at my YouTube videos and see my face gleaming as this product is caught under my soft box lighting and also the natural lighting I use. Over all I would recommend this any day over a facial tanner as this helps your skin while bringing moister to it while tanning where as fake tan clogs your poor and more than often brings spots and bad skin.
Now to match my glowing face I do need a glowing body! Now remember that post I made about the St Tropez Tinted moisturiser? Well I’ve found it’s partner in crime. The Hand Chemistry Glow Oil is just something so beautiful I want to bath my whole body in this stuff so I can look angelic. After apply fake tan of an evening I will wake up the next day and wash it off. I’ve then been applying a small amount of this golden oil over the top and its makes me legs look like Shirley Eaton’s in James Bond GoldFinger.
The last glowing product I have to show you guys is The Glow Molecule by Foundation, now this isn’t for the face but its for your tummy instead! This sweet tasting product really does make you glow from within. So far I’ve been trying to get back into my healthy eating habits after a few too many biscuits and I’ve been mixing one reason of this a day into my orange juice or smoothie and so far I’m 7 days strong on this and I have noticed after around day 5 my skin especially my face looked so happy it was spot free, freckles blooming and dis colouration was at bay. I honestly think this is down to a combination of the supplement and the Hylamide Glow Radiance Booster. Over all these products have made me feel like I am summer and I can’t recommend them enough they are an incredible product on the market which is going to stir more and more people away from over tanning in the sun and those dreaded sun beds.
