Luxe Product Rave: Sisley Tinted Body Sun Glow Gel

Friday, 22 August 2014

Without, 1 coat, 2 coats.

I was digging around in my beauty product stash a few weeks ago and found an unopened bottle of Sisley tinted body sun glow gel (longest name ever) just casually sitting there, now this stuff is ridiculously expensive but bloody hell, is it good!  I was lucky enough to be given this by a fellow makeup artist friend (fanks Mo x) and I can't believe it has taken me this long to give it a go.  With this recent lack of sun, my tan has just started to fade so this find was perfectly timed!

It gives the most subtle tint to the skin with a slight glow, its super easy to blend and once its on it doesn't transfer. It dries within seconds and is build-able so you can taylor it to your requirements.  The gel washes off in the shower, although once you have applied it, I would wash your hands as quickly as possible because it does cling to the palms like a bugger.  Warm water, soap and a flannel does the job.  I had it on at a wedding the other week for about 16 hours and when I woke up the next morning, my legs still looked flawlessly bronzed.

In the before picture above, you can see my feet are browner than my legs, even with one coat this stuff does an awesome job of matching up my legs, to my feet and overall creating a more even appearance.

If you have the cash to splash and want the option to top up the fading tan with out the commitment of a developing colour, then you can't go wrong with this.  The only thing I would say is, I tried this on my sister who is english rose style paley pale and it didn't do quite the same thing for her, it almost looked red on her skin so I would avoid if you are very pale.  For everyone else, this is a winner!

You can find it everywhere but here is a link to it on the Selfridges website.
