Giveaway! Jan Marini Self-Tanning Kit

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review and giveaway.  Today I'll be talking about one of my favorite lines out there, Jan Marini.  This is my go-to brand for skincare.  Recently they just released a line of self-tanning products and I had a chance to test them out.  This product is great to have right now as we're enjoying the last rays of Summer and we want to extend our bronze glow into the Fall.

In this kit you'll get the Bioglycolic Sunless Self Tanner, Resurfacing Scrub, and Hand & Body Lotion.

Bioglycolic Resurfacing Scrub
I previously reviewed this item but i'll give another quick recap.  It's a true must-have in order to prep for self-tanning.  The good thing is that it not only exfoliates but it leaves your skin feeling super soft and moisturized.  This is a plus since I skip lotion and usually just apply the self-tanner.  My skin doesn't feel super dry and tight after.






Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner
The Self Tanner actually has a small percent of bioglycolic acid so that it penetrates the skin more and achieves a longer lasting glow.  I use this after exfoliating and apply about once a week.  I notice that you don't need a lot of product - maybe the size of a quarter for your whole face.  The formula itself is a white cream that applies very smoothly.  After about an hour, my skin looks bronzed but in a natural way.  My skin complexion also looks more even.  I only use this for the face even though you could use it elsewhere.  I'm so happy that my skincare line came out with a tanner safe for the face.  I'm wary of using other brands' tanners on my face due to my sensitive skin.  The Jan Marini formula is safe for the face and I did not have any adverse reactions.  



Bioglycolic Hand and Body Lotion
A huge part of maintaining your tan is staying moisturized.  This lotion is great for evening out skin texture and healing environmentally damaged skin.  Its size makes it perfect for your desk or purse.  It is also a hand lotion which is awesome so that you can prevent aging on the front of your hands.

I live in Michigan and the cold and sunless time of year is coming up soon, it always gets really depressing when you get pale. I would love to try a self tanner to keep my summer glow going all year long.

I live in Seattle and the rainy season is about the start. I don’t get to see the sun for weeks at a time in the winter time because our days are so short. I would love to have glowing skin even in the winter time.

Hello, Ren! I would love to win this product because I, like you, have sensitive skin. My skin is extremely sensitive to a lot of products and I have to spend so much money on keeping it moisturized. I love trying new products for sensitive skin because I love to find something that works for me. I am soo pale because last time I tried to branch out and try a tanning product, it broke me out because it was not for sensitive skin :/. These products will help me stay moisturized and tan all in one and seem to keep the sensitive skinned in mind! I cannot go out tanning in the sun because I still have yet to find a suntan lotion that works for me. You could help me out tremendously! Thank you for the time and I love your blog and look forward to your tweets!

In love and light,
Krissi

I would love to win this because I don't have to go out the sun to get a tan. It would moisturize and give me a tan at the same time.

My skin starts to get so dull during the fall/winter, and I find that most self tanners make me look way to orange :(
