Here's a cool spin on things: a bronzing POWDER with SPF... yes, I know it's been around for some time but it's a current obsession of mine, and due to the heat, I felt it was quite timely.
Pre-summer, PTR launched their Instant Mineral Powder SPF's... I didn't really care for this product. I really wanted to love it, but I just couldn't. It was messy and the powder either exploded from the brush or barely came out at all. And I could never get the darn top back on without blugeoning the bristles! Needless to say, I wasn't a fan (and I usually love all things PTR!).
But then on a recent jaunt to Sephora I discovered Stila's Sun Bronzing Powder with SPF 15. It's actually a near-perfect "natural" colored tan that also offers sun protection. Two products for the price of one... we love it! (Although, as always, you should be using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 45 with both UVA and UVB screening filters... but this is a great addition to your everyday sunscreen.)
The powder is pressed - which means no messes! - and it comes in two shades - shade 1 (sheer golden matte bronze) and shade 2 (sheer warm matte bronze). I use shade 2 because I have naturally darker skin. Even without the spf (although this is a great summer beach bag must-have) this bronzer would still be amazing and worth the purchase! After all, it is Stila's "best-selling bronzing powder formula." How can you go wrong?!
