Reviva Labs is a clinically-based skincare company that is also environmentally conscious. The products are well-tested, researched, and results-driven.

I continually get great results with Reviva Labs products. Curious as to some of my previous Reviva Labs reviews? Be sure to check out: Expectant Mama Skincare Review, Expectant Mama Skincare Review (part 2), Reviva Labs Gentle Smoothing Cleansing GelReviva Labs Vit E Stick, and Reviva Labs Makeup Primer.

"Tan Without Sun" Face and Body Milk: Review

I am so excited to finally be using self-tanner again!!! I avoided/limited using self-tanners last Spring and Summer because of pregnancy. So, I am thrilled to be able to self-tan again!

My skin is super-duper fair. I have a hard time tanning in the sun without burning. Plus, who wants all that sun exposure anyways? Not me! Skin Cancer runs in my family and I have lost a friend to Melanoma. Sun protection is serious business! Since I protect myself against the sun, self-tanners are really the only way I get "color". Self-tanners actually give me a better looking tan than the sun without the skin cancer risk and the redness and potential burning.

Tan Without Sun is a great self-tanner option! It is a DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) based self-tanner. DHA is the ingredient that interacts with proteins in your skin's surface to products a natural-looking tan in about 3-4 hours. Tan Without Sun can be used on your body or your face.

At first I thought that this was a gradual tanner. But, I was wrong! This is a regular strength self-tanner. With that said, the results are a light/subtle tan. I found that the color produced looks quit natural and not overly "orange" (this is a good thing! So many tanners turn me orange; but, not this one!). :) The tan produced lasts about 4 days and gradually fades.

Tip: For best results always exfoliate before use of this product. Your resulting tan will be much more even. Pay special attention to exfoliate the ankles, knees, and elbows. Also, I apply a bit of regular lotion to those areas before self-tanner application. Color tends to cling to those areas otherwise.

The Giveaway!!!
