Now that the weather is cooling down and suntans are fading,  getting a healthy glow is harder to achieve outdoors, but KARORA has a great solution with their Gradual Tan and their Tinted Self Tan Mist. Their products contain lots of healthy antioxidant rich ingredients that condition and moisturize  the skin while offering it a beautiful sun kissed glow.

KARORA Gradual Tan ($25.00 for 5.07 oz./150ML from Ulta): This easy to use offers skin a  "subtle sun kissed color with intense hydration for face and body." This is the perfect multitasker that offers both moisture and the perfect amount of color. It has a delicious citrus scent that delights the senses rather than the unpleasant scent that is often found in self-tanners.

According to KARORA,

Get glowing with a daily dose of natural color and a burst of hydration. This moisture rich lotion replenishes and conditions the face and body with botanical boosting hydrators while turning it gloriously golden. Layer it up for a richer honey-dipped color.  Smells good, feels good and gives a lovely glow in just one application – that’s why it’s a beauty award winner.  KARORA Gradual Tan jump starts your tan after one application and builds into a deeper golden colour after just 1-2 further applications.  Fused with a proprietary blend of skin caring botanicals, the rich and luxurious formula glides on the skin leaving a fresh citrus fragrance. A real skin conditioning treat that ensures your colour fades evenly and naturally.  

Signature ingredients: fused with a fine tuned blend of jojoba, coconut oil, rosemary leaf extract, vitamin E  and essential oil of argan to soften, sooth and condition the skin.  With an aromatic top note of fresh orange oil for a blossoming skin scent.  

Directions: "Blend into skin ensuring even coverage.  Re-apply daily for deeper colour.  Wash hands after each application."

This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

  1. I'm all for sun-free tanning! And for a long time I mixed in fake tan with my body lotion to keep a tan all year round. But it's just such a hassle, you know, so when I finished my last bottle I just stopped. I'm fine with being pale.

    1. I agree, I am too, but like you-- I just let myself get pale during the cool months. I also avoid tanning during the warmer months! :-)
