Sunless Bronzer and Accessories

Here are several very cool products I would like to introduce. They are from Skinerals!

Skinerals Californium Sunless Bronzer is designed for all skin types. The natural blend of plant-based oils, essential oil blends, and fruit and plant extracts will help to moisturize, rejuvenate, and reduce fine lines.

Californium Sunless Bronzer –This mousse formula applies a natural tan effortlessly, free of streaks and unevenness. Made with all natural and organic ingredients, it is a great alternative to products with potentially harmful ingredients. It’s available in an 8oz bottle for home use and a travel size for touch ups on-the-go. You’ll love the natural and gorgeous glow the Sunless Bronzer gives. Retail: $27.99

Microfiber Applicator Mitt–The best way to apply the Californium Sunless Bronzer is to partner it with Skinerals’ applicator Mitt and Padded Wand. The Mitt does its job in ensuring that stained hands and nails will not be a factor in giving your face the beautiful, tan glow, that you’ve been looking for. Retail: $6.50

Padded Self Tanning Wand–The newest addition to the Skinerals line. The Tanning Wand Applicator is long enough to reach the lower spots on your back, while still creating a smooth and even tan. Retail: $10

Every Skinerals product is entirely vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free. To view the entire collection of organic skincare products, visit:
