This blog is a place where we can talk openly and be honest, so here it goes…fake tan can be a very complicated and messy process and when we use these types of products the result we want is a flawless and natural looking effect. That’s not always possible but Bali Body came to the rescue! They come out with the perfect products that allow you to make this process easy and fast!
Who doesn’t have the body a few shades darker than the face and neck? Well, if you don’t it’s because you are not using sun protection every day and that’s a no-no! It’s important to use a product with sun protection daily! It’s a rule!
And you may say ‘oh, then my face is never going to be tanned!’, no worries, as we said Bali Body is here to help. They created a face tan that helps even out the color, while giving a glow and hydrating the skin – Bali Body’s Face Tan Water.
You know that we are huge skincare fans here and after reading the ingredients list, we were very curious to test this product and see if it worked or not! Kindly, Bali Body offered us a bottle of this Face Tan Water so we could try it and share the results with you. So, keep reading to know what I think…
Packaging & Price…
It’s not the first Bali body product that we talk about, and the truth is that we love their aesthetics. The withe and nude pinks are commonly found in their packages and they are so beautiful and chic! The face tan water came in a clear bottle that allows you to see how much product you have left! Practical, right?
My water came with a yellow color and after some search, I found out that it’s normal. Nothing out of the ordinary, don’t worry.
Initially, I wasn’t expecting a pump in this product because I thought we were supposed to spray the product in the face, but then I realized what a terrible idea that would be (unless you wanted to create false Freckles, did I just have the greatest idea?).
Anyhow, this product has an easy to use pump that disperses the perfect amount of product. The Bali Body Face Tan Water retails for 28.95€ (Here) and it’s available at Bali body’s website and Sephora Portugal stores, each bottle brings 100ml, which is the perfect size to pack in any hand luggage. I think this product is going to last for quite some time, so at the price I think you are getting a pretty nice deal!
All of Bali Bodyks formulas are 10l% cruelty free and vegan and we stand for this! The face tan water works as a face tan (obviously) but it also has some skincare beneficial ingredients, mainly 4 key ingredients that work to nourish and turn the complexion more radiant.
- Rose Damascena flower extract is the ingredient that provides the light scent, while soothing the skin and reducing any redness. You can feel the rose fragrance, but don’t worry, it’s not too strong and pretty pleasant.
- Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, more known as Aloe Vera, is used for all skin types, especially dry, damaged, broken, sensitive and irritated skin. It offers anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, humectant, and soothing, anti-itch qualities for skin.
- Sodium Hyaluronate is derived from Hyaluronic acid, a very well known acid. It plumps the skin, hydrates and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. A hydrated skin allows the pigment to be at the fullest potential.
- Jojoba seed oil is the ingredient that made the a little afraid. I have oily skin and when I see oils…but jojoba oil is proven to be beneficial for psoriasis and acne, which calmed my worries. It also helps to minimize any tightness in the skin and it is an oil that’s very gentle.
How to use and results…
It’s really easy to use, you just need to apply a little to a cotton pad and apply to the neck, face and wait a few hours. You can also apply it with your hands, but I advise the Colton pad. It’s quicker and ensures the product is all over the face, neck and décolletage.
It absorbs and dries quickly! This means that you don’t need to worry about rubbing the product off in clothes or even in the sheets. I can say that I tried a fair number of Bali body products and never had any problem when it cakes to it Stain the sheets.
You literally just need to pump a bit of the product and apply it like you would do with a toner. It doesn’t provide an immediate color, after you let it dry completely, you can apply the rest of your skincare.
It starts to develop within 4 to 6 hours and it provides the perfect amount of color and glow to the skin! I loved the subtle color! You have to apply it in the hairline too, never forget that! For the most part, I don’t think anyone would know you were using a tanner if you just use one layer.
I wanted to test it to the fuller, so I applied a second layer after a couple of hours, and as I was expecting the color turned more dark, but I like the tone. Because I’m really light, I think that one layer is enough for me, but in the summer, when I’m more tanned, I think I will try two layers.
Take a look at the video that we post on Instagram, we show you how to use it and the results, they speak for themselves…
My advice is to apply one time and be patient. As I said, it takes about 4 to 6 hours to see results, so wait… don’t add a second layer without seeing the final result of the first one. I must say that I have washed my arm several times and I still have color, not so strong but it is still there, this means that the bronze will last a long time on the skin, so it is advisable not to use it too much. Unless you really want a dark tan!
Wash your hands, after applying this product!
I really liked the experience of trying this product. It is so easy to use. I was expecting a result in an orange shade, but I liked the results. It looks really natural and flawless! I also like the fact that this doesn’t have that intense fake tan scent that I hate. They advise the use of your normal skincare after using this product but my advice is to skip rich moisturizers because this product has enough rich ingredients on its own, unless you have really dry skin!
Perfect to take on vacations, or after vacations to get an enviable pos holiday sunkissed glow without having to worry about tan lines (from the sunglasses for example)! I think this product is perfect to even out the complexion and you can even skip the foundation in summer, while using this product, just apply a little of concealer in the under eyes.
You can use it once a week, or use every couple of days to build and maintain a natural looking tan.
