Guinot Hydra Bronze
Ideal Skin Type: All Skins

Growing up, I was a huge sun bather, I just couldn’t get enough! The darker I got, the more sun I would crave! Summer days were spent laying at the beach or pool for many hours, trying to achieve the perfect bronzed body. Now that I am educated on what those extended days in the sun actually did to my skin, I’ve looked for other, safer ways to achieve the same summer glow without the risk. This is why, when Guinot introduced their Lait Hydra Bronze moisturizer, I knew I had to try it! I have tried so many creams claiming to give a natural looking tan. I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to self-tanners. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try one more!
Guinot’s Hydra Bronze is unlike any other cream I’ve tried before. It also applies evenly every time, and I have yet to see any streaks or unnatural looking pigments. The cream itself is white, which means it won’t rub off on your clothes or sheets. The color develops into a soft brown, so there will be no orange in sight! What really surprised me was that this cream doesn’t just tan your skin, it’s also moisturizing it too! I was amazed at how hydrated my skin felt after applying the cream. There wasn’t any need for body lotion! Also Lait Hydra Bronze was created to be used on both the face and body. The main ingredients in the Lait Hydra Bronze is DHA and Erythrulose,which is what gives the skin a tan pigmentation that intensifies with continued use. It also contains a Hydrocyte Complex. This is what gives your skin all the hydration it’s going to need.
How To Use For Best Results:
To get the most out of this product, I would recommend exfoliating your skin beforehand. Removing the dead skin cells on your body will result in a more natural-looking and longer-lasting tan. Use Lait Hydra Bronze right after getting out of the shower and drying off with a towel. Your skin can soak up all of the hydration that this cream provides. When applying it to your face, blend the cream down your neck and onto your decollete; this will give you a more natural look. This cream can be used several times a week to maintain or increase the desired level of color. It is important to remember that this cream is not a sun protectant, you will still need to use an SPF if you plan to be out in the sun.
