Spend any time interviewing a dermatologist and you’ll quickly learn that there is no such thing as a safe tan. Melanin production in the skin is a response to UV damage and it can over time lead to skin cancer. I once went to interview a top skin cancer doctor who took a lot at a spot on my shoulder and insisted she cut it out at the end of the interview. (thankfully we caught it before it had turned into skin cancer but it was enough for me to understand the importance of sun protection.) So now I’m very careful to wear sunscreen when outdoors and I’m a big supporter of any beauty product that creates a natural sun-kissed effect on skin without the UV damage.
Bobbi Brown’s Glow Sticks are sunshine in a stick. It’s a creamy, lightweight highlighter that glides onto skin to deliver an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day. The soft shimmer finish really does make it look completely natural. And the formula blends into skin so you don’t have any hard edges or lines. Here are four of my favourite shades:
Beach Babe (a soft golden champagne shimmer)
Bikini (a pink golden shimmer)
Suntan (a red bronze shimmer)
Island (a golden shimmer)
The Giveaway: I gave away a set of all four of these Bobbi Brown Glow Sticks to one lucky reader. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below which of the four appeals to them most. Valerie Evans from the U.S. told us and we drew her name. Congrats Valerie
