It’s that time of year to emerge from our winter cocoon and show some skin. Is there a “no-rain dance” we can do in Seattle, it’s been a loooong winter!? Each spring, Bare Escentuals offers an exclusive supersized version of its Faux Tan Sunless Tanner as a QVC Today’s Special Value. Today is the day until Midnight EST! The award-winning Faux Tan is the best “tan from a bottle” I’ve ever used and the dark tint gives an instant bronze glow plus acts as an application guide (in other words, you can see where you put it so you don’t become Miss Spotty).
Sun or not, I use it year-round and it’s one of my top 5 body products. I bought this jumbo Faux Tan last year and it lasted the full 12 months — a little goes a long way. It comes with an applicator brush to keep your palms orange-free, but honestly I would toss it and use the Ulta Self-Tanning Applicator Mitt. The Faux Tan TSV is $46.14 (16 oz), it would be $100 at retail!
Perricone Nutritive Cleanser is my all-time favorite. It removes makeup completely and leaves skin soft and clean but not too dry. It also has anti-aging properties. Every once in a while, the Perricone website offers a Buy One, Get One Cleaner, which I scoop up. It makes the retail price of $38 (gulp!) much more affordable at just $19. I’ve also tried Perricone’s Citrus Wash and Cleansing Bar, which are o.k., don’t love. However, with the BOGO offer, you can mix and match to see which ones work best for you. BOGO offer expires April 23 @ 11:59PM. Add 2 cleansers to your shopping cart and the price automatically adjusts, no code needed.
