Is Scott Barnes Body Bling Moisturizer Better Than A Tan?

By: Kaitlyn Turkington,

Want to add a little bronze to your skin without the sun? Scott Barnes Body Bling adds a touch of colour and the kind of shine you'll never get with a real tan, without the effort of a sunless tan. It takes only a minute to fake the bronze of a sun-soaked weekend getaway.

Swipe it on from thigh to ankle to instantly smooth and lengthen legs, or apply to shoulders and décolletage to create a sun-kissed look.

You don’t have to worry about maintaining a rigorous exfoliating and moisturizing routine ahead of time for flawless application. And the formula washes off with water, so scrubbing away blotchy fake bake residue isn’t an issue.

So, if you need a little bling for a special night out, or just a sweep of colour to warm up your pale complexion, this moisturizing lotion delivers a beach-bunny hue without the worry of sun damage.
