Manna Kadar Bronze Beauty Self Tanning Lotion

I review a lot of self-tanners and they come in a wide range of prices, color results and abilities.  When I test them my main objective is that they be streak-free, natural looking and last.  I recently tested Manna Kadar Cosmetics Bronze Beauty ($20 2.7 oz, $29 4 oz) which promises all these things.  This self-tanning lotion is a custom blend of natural ingredients that hydrates and protects the skin with aloe, Vitamins A & E and leaves you with a fresh almond scent.

I applied a test patch to my inner forearm.  The gel-like lotion is dark brown. It reminded me of the Body Shop’s old bronzer made from walnuts that I used to love.  When it is applied it went on dark but after a few minutes the patch lightened up.  About an hour later the color had changed again to a more bronzed, ruddy tan.  I then applied it more liberally to the top of my forearm.  There was no awful self-tanner scent at all.  The color that gradually appeared was streak-free too.  The color is instant and gradually deepens after about 3 hours.  However, when I showered later that day the color went down the drain.  I didn’t think that was supposed to happen.  I think if I had applied it AFTER my shower and let it set the rest of the day it would have been fine.  You can layer the color of Bronze Beauty as well and it should remain for up to 3 days.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics, including Bronze Beauty, are available online at Manna Kadar Cosmetics.
