When I first saw this bronzing tinted moisturizer, I was scared that I would look like Snooki if I used it. I’m not the biggest fan of tans, and there really is nothing I fear more in the world than looking like a cast member of Jersey Shore. I might embrace the fist pumping, but I really can’t embrace the tanning.

So imagine my surprise when I looked in the mirror after trying on the Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer! Instead of looking like I stepped out of Jersey Shore, I looked like I did during summer, but even glowy-er and more illuminated.

Getting a Natural Looking Tan with the Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer

This tinted moisturizer also contains skin-beneficial ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, Vitamins A and E for antioxidant protection, and Chamomile to calm any irritations. The slight shimmer also helps diffuse light, which helps blur out fine lines and wrinkles, giving it a soft-focus effect.

If you are a bit shy about using this as an all over your face, you can definitely still use this as a bronzer. Simply blend it along the cheeks, the temples, and a little across the nose to give the illusion of a real tan.

Have you tried the Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer before? What are your thoughts? Also, what is up with the weather? Yesterday it was sunny and warm while today it’s as if a hurricane is going through town! My car almost swerved due to the strong wind!
