DuWop Revolotion Bronzing Body Moisturiser
Advantages: tinted body moisturiser with SPF 15 and shimmer
Disadvantages: expensive, not available in light anymore
I've been using DuWop Revolotion for a number of years now. I really like DuWop products, and I first discovered them about 10 years ago on a trip to the US. DuWop are an American company, and they make really innovative beauty products, the most famous of which is probably Lip Venom. Revolotion is apparently their 3rd best selling product. I normally buy DuWop products from Sephora in the US, but if I need a DuWop fix here in the UK then I will go to Harvey Nicks. As with most beauty products they do work out much cheaper if you buy them in the US.
DuWop Revolotion is a tinted body moisturiser which also contains SPF 15 and a very subtle shimmer. It's available in just 2 colours; medium and dark, I buy the medium and I'm very pale skinned with absolutely tonnes of freckles. When Revolotion was first launched quite a few years ago they used to also have it available in a light skin version, I did always buy the light. For some reason DuWop then stopped producing Revolotion, they obviously then had loads of requests for it to be brought back, and so they did so but without the light version. I'm happy enough with the medium, but if the version for light skin ever became available again then I would go back to it.
It's easy to use, it's in a tube which stands on it's cap so that it's easy to squeeze out the lotion even when you're getting to the end of the bottle, it has a flip top lid which makes it easy to flip up and use with one hand which is handy for when you're mid application with brown greasy hands. You basically just smooth this onto your legs, arms, cleavage etc, anywhere you want to use it, and then massage thoroughly and evenly until it is all absorbed. It takes a few minutes to massage it all in but you must ensure that it is, otherwise it will end up coming off on your clothes. Don't be alarmed by the initial colour of the lotion (it is quite a deep colour and will initially feel like it will leave you permatanned - it won't though!), it does actually sink right in and adapt to everyones own unique skin tone. You need to allow 10 minutes or so for the lotion to set and to dry completely before getting dressed.
DuWop Revolotion is a blend of moisturiser, shimmer and body make up. This is more of a moisturiser rather than a bronzer and so it won't leave as much colour on your skin as a fake tan or a shimmer does, it will basically just transform, enhance and even out your skins complexion. This leaves my skin polished and glowing, and healthy looking. This perfects my skin and evens out my skin tone wonderfully, it just leaves behind a very subtle shimmer on my skin. It doesn't give me a fake tanned look at all, it just takes the edge off my white skin and leaves behind a very natural looking sheen. The medium I find does leave my skin with a slightly more bronzed colour than the light did, but it is still very natural. This has never gone orange or streaky on me at all, and I'm the worlds worst fake tan applier!
I really like that this has the added SPF 15, I know that this isn't all that much, but it's certainly better than nothing at all.
This a wash off tinted moisturiser, and it does wash off very easily. It doesn't take anything more than a regular shower to dissolve all traces of it. It also easily just washes off your hands after you've applied it.
This won't stain or rub off onto your clothing, so long as you have massaged and rubbed it in thoroughly, and that you have waited the 10 minutes before getting dressed. If you are really hot and sweaty though then it may just come off onto your clothes. I have had it rub off onto a couple of items, but that was in 40 degree temperatures on holiday, and I was sweating like a pig! It does wash out of your clothes though if it does happen to get on them, providing you add some Vanish to the wash.
I've been sat here with a little bit of this on the back of my hand whilst I type the review, trying to describe the fragrance. I'm catching whiffs of it whilst I type and still struggling to describe it. To me this smells of summer as that's when I primarily use it, it has a slight cocoa butter undertone a bit like Palmers Cocoa Butter, it reminds me of summer holidays and sun, cocktails and sun lotion! Sorry that's probably the worst fragrance description ever!
I absolutely love DuWop's Revolution and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The last one I purchased was in the US, and it was $28.00 so it's not a cheap product, however it is a brilliant product and it works very very well. It does also last for absolutely ages, you don't need to apply too much of this, if you do apply too much you will find that it won't actually all sink into your skin and you will have to blot the excess off with a tissue. Less is definitely more with this.
