Our mission is first and foremost to change the way each of us interpret a golden tan; second, to achieve the look of bronzed all year long by creating products for the face and body to achieve a better than natural tan without the harmful effects of the sun.
With a mission like that, I’m all ears. What exactly are we talking about here? My new favorite non-self-tanners by Blud, a body “makeup” that gives you a customized light reflective, blemish diminishing, quick-drying, long-wearing, streak-free tan.
The full body enhancing bronzer by Blud called IMMUNITY comes in natural (original) or deep. The best part is that when you are finished for the day with this apply-and-go body bronzer, you just simply wash off the IMMUNITY bronzer with soap and water. It’s perfect for any event where you need to look your best but don’t have time to go tanning and have no time to wait while your self-tanner processes.
Honestly, as long as you wait a few minutes to set up in a cool, dry place before putting on your (non-white) clothes, you’re in good hands. It doesn’t really transfer as much as other body makeup bronzing products that I have tried in the past.
What I like about the Blud IMMUNITY bronzer products is that they are completely honest when they say they aren’t meant for use on your face. With that being said, Blud created two face bronzing powders: one with a matte suede texture in a true deep bronzed color with antioxidant vitamins C and E to help condition skin and fight off free radicals from the environment, and another that is a lightweight, baked bronzer with soft subtle pigment and a healthy highlighted natural glow similar to one of Ms. Jennifer Lopez.
What I like most about the Blud bronzing products is the gender neutral approach, showing us that girls and guys can use these to enhance their body’s appearance naturally or dramatically without the harmful rays of the sun. Also, Blud works closely with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the ACS (American Cancer Society) to educate and help people understand the risks and dangers from UV radiation and to help lower the risk of sun-related health issues and premature aging.

Tip: If you feel like your body bronzing makeup is still too intense, mix a little bit in with your everyday body moisturizer for a subtle summer daily glow.
Trick: Body hair and tanning don’t totally mix, so always stay groomed, whether it’s trimming the body hair shorter or waxing and shaving completely. This will allow for any body bronzing product to apply more smoothly and accurately.
