“ Brand: Superdrug / Type: Bronzer / What it does: Bronzes, „
First off before I get stuck into writing this review I feel I must clarify about the product that I am reviewing. It is called Solait Bronzing Cream but it comes in a plastic jar and not as depicted in the review photograph at the top of this page. Dooyoo however have told me to review the product I want to here...so here I am!
I bought this a couple of weeks back in Superdrug whilst having nothing at all in mind to purchase at all but spotted it reduced from its usual price of £4.99 down to a pound and thought what the heck! I like a bit of bronzer but am more than used to throwing them out after them not suited me so at a quid a jar I simply thought this was worth the risk....its that simple lol.
Plastic see-through jar that is small and round in shape and holds 16g of the product and it has a brown twist on/off lid to the top of it and the first time you open the jar there is a white plastic cover you simply pull off and dispose of. Inside the see-through jar there is a brown section and that holds the cream and I guess that is there so you can't see how much cream you've used etc so the jar never looks scruffy. On the front and on the back of the jar and in gold writing I am told that it is Superdrug Solait 'Bronzing Effects' Bronzing Cream With Shimmer. On the base of the jar there is a white label and the colour is stated (which mine is deep bronze and a lighter shade is available), the ingredients are listed, I am told that it is dermatologically tested, the size is stated and contact details for Superdrug are given. Nice little jar this is and you do get alot of product for you money really.
Well it says on the jar it is a cream and thats what I was expecting it to be, like a gloopy rub in cream of some description. However this is one you gently run your fingers over and it comes off. It feels slightly and lightly greasy and the reason for this is because it is made from paraffinium liquidum (which is a greasy sort of substance). The colour I had chose when on my fingers looked really dark brown and a bit scary however I have found this incredibly easy to use as it is so blend-able.
It contains no smell and washes off with ease when you want to remove it. I gently apply it to where I want it and in moderation and then slowly blend it in which is easy to do so because of the slight grease content that it possesses.
Now cos you only get a small jar of this I can't recommend this cream for large areas or you going to run out very fast. I use this on my face, collarbones and my décolletage. Not only does it give a nice browny colour on the skin that looks like I am sun kissed it also contains a slight shimmer but not in a cheap glittery way, that shimmer is just infused into it somehow giving a healthy glow to the tanned area.
When on it doesn't transfer off or budge and it really does stay on till I want to remove it.
It doesn't congest or agitate skin either and all round I rather like this and particularly like the sheer and none greasy look it gives (once applied).
You use this sparingly and and on smallish areas and all in all I can happily recommend it! Not bad at all Superdrug!
