Origins Faux Glow

This is another little surprise of a product I´ve been loving in the run up to holiday. Firstly I had no idea that Origins did any tanning products, so that was a surprise and the next thing that really caught my attention was the minty fresh scent.

Origins Faux Glow is a slightly shimmering gel, that contains DHA to get the skin to develop a nice, natural and subtle tan. I know this because first time I tried it was a small drop on the back of my hand – and the colour that developed was nice and subtle, and although it´s a wear off product, it didn’t look at all unnatural.
The colour is lovely and the minty scent is refreshing – and different for a tanning product. There´s no hint of the normal tan smell at all! I love it – well worth checking out if you want a mixture of instant (because it´s tinted) and lasting (because it contains DHA) colour for the face.
PR sample.

    The colour in the bottle is beautiful 🙂 Great review, i am currently in the search for the perfect subtle fake tanner, so i might just have to give this a go 🙂

    This sounds really worth a try, the fact that it doesn’t smell like usual tan has sold it for me xo

    I didn’t know origins created tanning products, either! This product sounds really neat-especially the mint scent. I don’t think I have ever encountered a tanner that has a scent of the sort. I am actually looking for a facial tanner, since I am scared to use the one I have, on my face-seeing as it is intended for use just on the body. I don’t want any breakouts and such.

    I had no idea Origins made tanning products! I recently wrote a review on Too Faced: Tanning Bed in a Tube.

    Very curious to check this product out now! Love the packaging and I’ve never tried a self-tanner with that scent!

    I’m really enjoying your blog, by the way! 🙂
