I did not cave on buying the Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel – it looked very pretty in the ads I saw, but then in person I wasn’t as in love as I thought I would be.   The colors seemed like they were “off” for my skin tone and the shades appeared to not have as smooth of transition in shades as they appeared in the ads.   I probably was/am the only one who feels this way.  But, for $50 it needed to be better for my personal use.

Borghese Milano Multi-Bronzer is another thing though, (shown on top) as I am continually impressed with the Borghese line.  There are two bronze shades in medium and medium dark along with a soft pink peach to soften it all up.   The 3 shades blend beautifully to give a nice soft warm bronze glow.  You can use the shades separately, but I think they work best when blended together.   At times when I use this I will take the darkest shade and use it for a bit of contouring.  It’s a value compared to the Chanel one at $31.

Don’t want a heavy moisturizer and separate foundation?  Then consider the Borghese Summer Glow SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer.   A big plus, it’s oil-free.  Other wonderful things?  A beautiful soft glow and tint makes your skin look like you’ve spent the day relaxing at the beach and got your glow on.  It adds just enough warmth to not look fake and the glow is soft so you don’t look like an oil slick.  A perfect combination.  It’s a small tube at 1.29 oz, but a little is enough as it blends out easily and beautifully. $29

Bronzers and tinted moisturizers aren’t your thing, but still want a glow? Splendore Brightening Body Glow is an option for face and body.  It doesn’t add much color, and not a bronze shade either.   It’s more of a warm golden peach tone that adds shimmer to wherever you want.  The light diffusing particles are very pretty on the décolleté, legs, shoulders or highlighting the cheekbones.   A bonus is, it’s made with Vitamins A & E.  $35.50
