As we hit mid-stride in this beautiful summer weather, everyone around us seems to be toting that enviable summer glow. And, while I love the idea of sporting the perfect golden glow, I know that hours of worshipping the sun gods will do nothing for the protection and preservation of my skin or the skin of our beautiful clients.
So what was a girl to do?
I knew that the best bet for offering this golden glow would be to carry a self-tanner at the studio, and while I had used these products before, I wanted to be sure that if we carried one it did three things that so many self-tanners on the market do not — offer a bronze goddess glow, were (nearly) scent free, and applied smoothly and evenly every time. Hours of research and testing out products later and I landed on Sjolie, a family-owned company that creates organic, and naturally derived products in the USA.
So let’s talk more about how this brand checks all the boxes on my list:
Reason #1: It offers a beautiful, gradual glow.
My favorite product that is carried by Sjolie is their tanning mousse due to its gradual glowing magic. The application requires that it sit on your skin for 8 hours (which is why I always apply mine right before bed), and once it has done its work, you will experience golden perfection. Despite my obsession with the color orange, that is one hue that I did not want to see on my skin, and thank goodness it was nowhere to be found! This product gives me a color that is complementary to my skin tone, providing me the look of sun-kissed skin without the damage.
I also love that you can apply once and get a beautiful color or apply a few days in a row to achieve your desired shade.
Reason #2: It is lightly scented.
Now this one is a biggie for me. If you have ever experienced the smell of a spray tan or self-tanner, you know what I am talking about. What I love about this product is that you get all the benefits of an amazing spray or self-tan without the overpowering smell. All products in this line have a very light scent, making the experience delightful from beginning to end.
Reason #3: The foam applies like a dream
The other thing that I love about this product is its seamless application. The mousse glides on like a seamless and when used with the mit (which I highly recommend to avoid stained fingers), your application will be flawless each and every time. You won’t have to worry about streaks, spots, or uneven patches with this product. Can I get a heck yes?!
So, if you are looking to glow up this summer season, but want to keep the youth and integrity of your skin intact, stop on in and check out this product line!
