Australian Gold Jwoww Black Bronzer Dark Tanning Lotion

The Australian Gold Jwoww Black Bronzer Dark Tanning Lotion is a bronzer meaning it has added color to give you a darker tan faster. It contains carmel, Monoi de Tahiti, walnut shell extract and dark natural bronzers that work together to create a darker tan. According to Botanical Beauty, "Monoi de Tahiti is an extraordinary oil for skin and hair care. It has been shown to penetrate and hydrate the skin rapidly and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. Use Monoi oil in creams, lotion, shampoo, soap and etc." These high-quality ingredients make this tanning lotion worth the extra dollars in my opinion. Fortunately, sellers on Amazon offer it at a much more affordable price than the local tanning salons.

In addition, this bronzer contains hemp seed and black currant oil. These are advertised to be superior moisturizers that prepare skin for the darkest color possible. According to the Global Healing Center, "Studies have indicated that hemp seed oil can dramatically decrease skin dryness to alleviate itching and irritation. Moreover, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may protect against the aging process while soothing the skin." According to Style Craze, "The oil produced from black currants through low heat technique (cold-pressed) is extremely beneficial for the skin. Its antioxidative properties can nourish your dry and damaged skin and restore its natural glow without any adverse effect." Botanical Beauty also states that black currant seed oil is "very nourishing and revitalizing for dry and damaged skin and excellent for ailments such as eczema and psoriasis." As an added bonus, Jwoww Black Bronzer Dark Tanning Lotion also contains a combination of vitamins, sunflower oil, and kukui nut oil to soften and smooth skin.

Designer Skin Luminary Bronzer 25X

Designer Skin Luminary Bronzer is described as a 25x black label private reserve. It contains "Magical Solar Silicone" and "Light Engaged Defiance". The Designer Skin brands have a smooth and silky feel to them due to the silicone ingredient. The lotion feels luxurious and moisturizes the skin for long periods of time. It has a fragrance described as a sweet champagne fizz. According to Designer Skin, "Revolutionary L.E.D.™ Complex works as a multifunctional system to help combat free radical aggressors and boost skin's overall tone, elasticity and appearance. Soft Celestial Stardust provides perfect dimension and luminosity to the skin."

Designer Skin Luminary has a very pleasant scent and goes onto the skin smoothly. Even though it doesn't streak on the skin, I noticed it can leave spots color between the fingers if not wiped off soon after applying the lotion. After using Luminary, the skin feels very soft and smooth. The lotion also has distinct little sparkles that appear in the sunlight. I love the skin-sparkling effect of this light subtle shimmer!

According Tan Insider, Designer Skin Luminary Bronzer, 25X is number one in the Review of the Top Five Tanning Lotions of 2016. "The Luminary bronzer is one of the best tanning lotions on the market. Most forums and reviewers agree. We personally think it’s the best out there today."

Designer Skin Black 20X Bronzing Body Silk

Another Designer Skin product, Designer Skin Black 20X Bronzing Body Silk is designed to get you darker much faster than other lotions. It has a silicon emulsion that leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. The bronze color of the lotion is dark and rich looking, having an immediate effect when applied. The fragrance is a refreshing citrus.Revolutionary Mega Silicone Emulsion helps provide maximum hydration and promotes smooth, sinfully-soft skin

According to Designer Skin, the revolutionary "Mega Silicone Emulsion helps provide maximum hydration and promotes smooth, sinfully-soft skin. It utilizes 3X Mega MelamaxTM Optimizing Complex for sensational, dark tanning color, while 2X Opti-GlowTM Blend delivers a vibrant, radiant glow."

On Amazon, over 500 comments have been made about this product and it has a4 starreview. A salon favorite, usually selling for $80 or more, the price of just over $30 is very reasonable. Many tanners comment that when compared to other tanning lotions, they find that Designer Skin Black provides the best results and they come back to it time and again.

Don't Use a Tanning Bed?

Even if you don't tan at a tanning salon or have a tanning bed of your own, these lotions designed specifically for tanning beds are great to use as everyday lotions. They have bronzers, giving your skin a darker appearance immediately upon application. They have ingredients that keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, feeling soft and smooth. They are in large 13.5 ounce bottles that will last for several months and they smell wonderfully fragrant.

if you do tan, it is important to tan responsibly. Taking care to never burn is essential. Also, tanning too much is not a good idea. Using a good tanning lotion can easily cut down on the time and number of sessions needed to attain a tan. Tanning lotion will keep your skin moisturized and provide the bronzers as well.

I personally only use tanning beds when I am going on vacation or for special occasions. I enjoy spending 15 to 30 minutes in the sun each day and find it essential for my well-being. I use sunscreen after 30 to 45 minutes in the sun so that I never burn. I love using tanning lotion with bronzers as moisturizers and for that added touch of color.
