Beauties for Bronzing

Yay to Spring and the promise of Summer. And yes I know it's currently freezing and I've seen snow today and my heating is on and off like no ones business but we are getting sunny days, with clear blue skies. And with the longer, brighter days, I suddenly become very aware of my pasty winter covered skin.
So as we start to brave baring arms and legs and wearing lighter make up, I've got two beauties (one new to me) that will help you achieve a subtle and healthy bronze glow.
St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion
St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion
I've written before about this gradual tan, and if you want to see the results of using this after only 5 days and on only 1 leg, check out my previous review for Really Ree here. 
What I love about this body lotion is you use it every day, as you would your usual lotion but instantly you get a subtle glow thanks to the tinted moisturiser, which blurs imperfections (so great for my legs). And over days the tan element builds up to a natural looking colour. The body lotion smells fresh and doesn't have the normal strong self tan smell you get with other lotions. As the gradual tan develops there is a slight smell but it's not unpleasant or detectable to anyone else and actually I like to know that the tan is developing. 
Boots currently have this on offer at £9.00 (usually £15). I'm on to my 2nd tube and the 1st lasted me all summer last year.
L'Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion de Soleil

This is a new one for me. A liquid bronzer. And in a cushion. But already I love it. Cushion foundations are everywhere and they are such a brilliant idea - perfect for travelling. I haven't tried a cushion foundation yet but as I was in the market for a bronzer, I decided to give this a go.
L'Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion de Soleil
I apply using a damp beauty blender after my foundation and concealer but before powder. I dab on to the normal areas you would apply bronzer. And because this is a liquid and you're only applying the amount which you get by pressing in to the cushion, the effect is a sheer, more believable "I caught the sun" or generally healthy looking glow to your face.
£14.99 from Boots or Superdrug.

And for those of you that need reading glasses - I picked up the rayban style reading sunglasses from Tiger last weekend for £4.00!!  After the last few years of having to choose between lying in the sun or reading in the shade with my prescription glasses, this year I decided was the year I bought some prescription sunglasses. As I don't have a really strong or specialist prescription, I picked up the +2.0 and for £4 (they have UV protection), they are perfect as I didn't want to splash out on designer reading sunglasses.
