Keeping Your Sun-Kissed Glow After Summer

Keeping Your Sun-Kissed Glow After Summer With Melanie Mills Hollywood Body Radiance
One of the most saddest things about the seasons changing is losing your sun-kissed glow and the colour that only the summer sun can give your skin. I especially hate seeing the tan-ness of my legs starting to disappear. I much prefer when there's a bit of colour to my legs. I know a lot of people like to cheat the system and go to tanning beds, but to my understanding, those are extremely bad for your skin/health. The easiest way (and safest way) to get around it, in my opinion, would be self-tanners and tinted body creams.

Now if you haven't heard of this brand before, where have you really been? Their Gleam Body Radiance have been extremely popular with celebrities and makeup enthusiasts around the world. The creator, Melanie Mills, birthed this product while working in the makeup department of Dancing With The Stars. How impressive, right? The idea behind this was to create something that would hydrate, even skin textures, hide minor flaws and give a natural or bronzed look to the skin. I was lucky enough to be sent two of their Gleam On The Go Kits*.

Both of the G.O.T.G kits come with three shades. This one houses Rose Gold, Bronze Gold, and Deep Gold. These are they're three darkest shades, so if you really want to look like you had a ton of sun, this is the kit for you. These creams are ideal to use on the body or face. They act like a moisturizer, so it doesn't feel heavy on the skin - in fact, it feels like nothing on the skin! But you do get the effect that you want, which is tan, glowing skin! When the weather permits (since it's been so bipolar), I like to wear cropped pants or culottes. Whenever I do, I make sure to use one of these on my legs so that it doesn't look 'pastey'.

This kit comes with Rose Gold, Peach Deluxe, and Disco Gold. I believe Peach Deluxe is in collaboration with the Youtuber, SonjraDeluxe. What I love about the Body Radiance creams is that not only do they add colour to your skin, but they also give it a nice sheen that doesn't looks so natural, as if it's your own skin. As you can see from my swatches, each shade is pretty pigmented. However don't worry about it looking fake; once it's blended into the skin, it looks like your own. They also don't transfer, so no worries about it getting on your clothes!

And there you have it... the quickest (and easiest) way to keep that sun-kissed glow all year 'round. Honestly, I've been using these non-stop. I love applying some on my décolletage and shoulder area so I can still get away with wearing my favourite summer foundations. As for the kits, I think they're a fab way of giving Melanie Mills Hollywood's Gleam Body Radiance without committing to a full size. If you're thinking about giving these a try, they have some leg swatches on different skin tones to see how it may look on yours!
