A few of my favorite things… Bronzers!

With Winter finally moving on and Spring blossoming on the horizon, I can’t help but swoon over golden skin, open-toed shoes and mini-dresses!

Here are a list of my top 5 favorite bronzing products moving into Spring:

Tarte’s Hotel Heiress Mineral Powder Bronzer – an oldie, but goody. I’ve replenished this compact more times than I’ve said “I love you.” Truth is, this bronzer is reliable (unlike most men). It always gives me great color and never irritates my skin! $28.00

Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate – Mix with your favorite moisturizer to add a golden hue and even out skin tone on face, arms, legs – anywhere you want to show some skin. And it’s organic: Score! $39.95

St. Tropez Ultimate Tan Rapide Face – I love all St. Tropez products… they really offer the most natural, non-orange color. This buildable color self-tanner is specifically designed for the face. It’s extra hydrating, doesn’t streek (but still be careful around hairline) and is loaded with antioxidants. Within 3 hours, you’ll look like you just returned from a vacation on the French coast! $38.00

Smashbox Fusion Body Lights Bronzing Powder – A ginormous three-colored bronzing compact for golden shimmer with a dose of perfumey scent. You get to control the amount of bronze – less or more, depending on how much of each color that you use. It’s my go-to for night time illuminizing – a couple of dusts on my collar bone, shoulders, arms, legs… and I’m left glistening like a golden goddess (and smelling gorge too). $54.00 (comes with the nub brush)

Glow Fusion Face & Body Natural Protein Tan – It’s like a spray tan at home! Every Spring, I recover this product from the depths of my beauty cabinet. It’s been a longtime favorite as I’ve never found another spray product that gives such a natural, golden tan. And it’s perfectly safe for the face too (trust me, I have the most sensitive skin and it doesn’t make me break out). Again, you can control the shade – want more bronze, just spray a couple more spritzes. Less, try for one or two sprays. I guarantee you will be obsessed with the results! $58.00
