Natural Tanning From Zhuzh!

Natural Tanning From Zhuzh

Now that Summer is here it is time to make the most of that glorious sunshine before its gone for another year. So we are on a race against the seasons to get our tan on, safely. If like me you’re not the kind of person who has time or patience to devote to working on their tan for hours then Zhuzh have you covered. Their selection of Tan Accelerator products help you not only deepen your tan, reduce the amount of time you need to spend in the sun and and maximise your tan potential.

So say hello to a sun kissed glow the easy way! Let me introduce you to the selection,

Zhuzh! Tan Accelerator*

This is one of Ideal World’s best selling beauty products and I have been through a few bottles of this over the past few years. It is not a fake tan product – it works by stimulating the melanin production in your skin to boost the tanning process and bring out your natural colour. This spray on, non-greasy formula is fuss free to use and it speeds up the tanning process meaning you achieve optimal results with less time in the sun = less damage and safer tanning.

You don’t have to actively sunbathe for this to deepen your tan, it works just by being outside in natural daylight. That could be anything from walking outside, shopping or just going about your daily routine – it will be enhancing your skin’s natural hues and tones. I like to use it on holiday or for a few weeks prior to a special event because unlike those dreaded fake tan mishaps this never leaves you with streaks nor does it gather around your knees and elbows and It gives a quicker, long lasting tan and the glycerine and shea butter helps to nourish and hydrate your skin.

One thing to note is that this is not an SPF or a replacement for SPF so make sure you apply sun protection before going out in the sun!

Self Tanning With Zhuzh!

Cool Zhuzh! Spritz*

Over the past week, this little blue bottle has become a lifesaver, it contains cooling Aloe Vera, Menthol and Vitamin E to keep your skin feeling refreshed, soothed and moisturised. It is so nice misting this over your skin after a super warm day, it is instantly cooling and refreshing. It is 100% a beach bag essential for any Summer holiday, to not only to cool and soothe your body and face throughout the day but also to help keep your skin from feeling parched.

Zhuzh! Tan Lock Saver*

idealworld.tv/…/zhuzh-new-improved-tan-lock-and-saver-200ml-215432If you’re someone who worries about their golden tan fading too fast then you will want to add this product to your Summer skincare regime. Like the previous two products in this range, it comes in a handy spray bottle so you can lightly mist it over your skin and massage it in. This lightweight oil re-awakens dull skin and is a fantastic way of keeping your tan looking great and locking in moisture. The new formulation contains vitamin E and coconut oil, which both leave your skin feeling soft with no greasy residue at all! I hear it can also be used as a bath oil and a deep moisturising hair treatment too, so it is quite the multi-purpose product (I love those).

Zhuzh! Self Tanning Products

Zhuzh! The Best of Both Tans*

So this is one of my favourite products from the range and it is a 2 in 1 product. It will moisturise, deliver a gradual self-tan and accelerate your very own natural tan simultaneously. The gradual tan gives me a subtle bronze tan that develops over time so you are in control of your colour and can build it up to a deeper tan if you wish. Not only does this boost your natural pigment much like the first product I spoke about but this also gives you a jump start on getting a tan and all without having to actually sit in the sun.

One thing that is really nice about this is it feels like you have applied the most luxurious body lotion as it leaves your skin feeling silky soft and hydrated. So if you want to get a head start on your holiday tan then this handy 2 in 1 product is a must-have.

Self Tanning With Zhuzh

Remember none of these products are a substitute for SPF so you will need to apply SPF before going out in the sun

Decleor Skin in Bloom TSV on QVC

  • Micellar Oil – I am a huge fan of this for removing my makeup and have spoken about it on my blog in the past. It effectively cleanses the skin and removes make-up including waterproof mascara, leaving skin clean and clear, comfortable, soft, supple, radiant and hydrated. A great product to help skin look radiant and refreshed. Skin loving ingredients include, sweet Almond Oil, rich in essential fatty acids, helps to strengthen and soothe the skin, and Vegetal Squalene (derived from Olive Oil) maintains optimal hydration levels for deep moisturisation and suppleness.
  • Aromessence Néroli Serum – This is an elixir of 100% pure and natural essential oils specially formulated to comfort and treat skin exposed to daily stress from the environment. It’s beautifully luxurious on the skin and it feels like your skin just drinks it up. With a NEW triple efficiency of the bitter orange tree; Aromessence Neroli Amara uses essential oils from the flower, fruit, leaves and twigs.
  • Hydra Floral Rich Cream – This has a lovely rich but lightweight formula and is the perfect moisturiser for Spring. It helps your skin look bright and smooth. As with all Decléor products it has a cocktail of skin loving ingredients including, Wild Pansy Extract, Samphire Extract and Neroli Essential Oil to provide your skin with 24 hour hydration, whilst Moringa Oleifera Proteins and Sunflower Extract gives protection against free radical damage and environmental aggressors.

Then you get a choice of either

  • Aroma Confort Systeme Corps Moisturising Body Milk – I have used up a couple of these body lotions these past few months. I find it’s lightweight enough to use in the morning and I don’t get that awful, heavy, icky sticky feeling under my clothes. Although it is lightweight it is still intensely hydrating and smoothing and a fantastic lotion to use on your legs after shaving because it is cooling and very calming. It has some lovely ingredients including coconut oil, meadowfoam oil and vitamin E. This is a huge supersize 400ml bottle so will last you ages!
  • Aroma Confort Gradual Glow Hydrating Body Milk – I love a gradual tan and this is going to be perfect for giving my skin a healthy subtle glow for Spring. Not only does this give you a golden glow but it’s also very hydrating. It includes, Magnolia Essential Oil to soothe the skin and help protect it from free radicals, Narcissus Bulb to help prolong a natural or fake tan and preserve the skin’s youthful appearance, and Vanilla Extract to protect the skin against external irritants. DHA – a sugar obtained by biotechnology. This is also in a 400ml supersized bottle so it will last you well into Summer

Soap & Glory Heel Genius

My feet need some TLC after Winter & the fact that they have permanently been in socks or slippers for months. Now that the weather is getting warmer and I’m thinking about more Spring / Summer appropriate footwear I want my feet to look their best. My feet don’t get that dry but I do like to apply some of the Soap & Glory Heel Genius at night and let it soften my tootsies overnight before washing it off in the morning. It is quite greasy but it does a great job so I can live with that odd tacky feeling overnight, sometimes I put on some socks so it doesn’t get on my bedding. This smells lovely, as do all the Soap & Glory products and it’s just a great affordable product. A tube lasts for ages, I think I have had this over a year and its still going strong.

ESPA Naturally Radiant Gradual Tan*

I’m terrible at all things related to fake tan, I’m a complete novice and to be honest, the thought of fake tanning scares the hell out of me. So I tend to stick to the gradual tanners, I find them more subtle and a little more user-friendly. This ESPA one gives a gorgeous (natural) summer holiday glow. It’s extremely lightweight and feels nourishing and hydrating. It has a real no fuss or mess formula. You apply it like a body lotion and leave it to work its magic & give your skin a gorgeous natural glow which develops over four hours and intensifies each day. This smells incredible.

TonyMoly I’m Real Radiance Sheet Mask

I love using sheet masks – they force you to relax and take 20 minutes for yourself. These Tony Moly ones are affordable and come with 11 options for all different skin concerns. I use the radiance one the most, its infused with tomato fruit extract to boost radiance, smooth, and moisturise. Its also contains peach fruit extract, which brightens, hydrates, and refreshes the complexion.This mask is so good if like me you have naturally lacklustre skin. The sheet masks itself a great size for my quite small face and is very moist. I apply it to clean skin and leave it on for about 20 – 30 minutes, then I pat in the residue product and my skin looks so refreshed and glowing. These really are fantastic and so affordable.

Clinique Super City Block SPF40

This is one of my favourite lightweight facial sun protectors, I’m pretty disciplined these days and I wear quite a high factor broad spectrum SPF on a daily basis. It is now part of my daily skincare routine. I have been using the Clinique Super City Block for about a year now and I’ve found that it wears so well under makeup. It never leaves my skin feeling or looking greasy and It provides a high level of protection from UVA & UVB rays as well as environmental aggressors. The cream itself is a light beige and it has a slight tint but it fades once blended into the skin. I wouldn’t be without a tube of this & highly recommend if you’re looking for a new SPF that won’t break you out or feel heavy on the skin.
