NEW product alert from St Tropez: Luxe Dry Oil

We are so excited to now carry the newest product from St Tropez: Luxe Dry Oil! What is it, you ask? Well….its a silky-smooth body moisturizer, a self-tanner, and sexy golden shimmer all in one. I can’t believe how many things this one product can do!

But wait: what’s a dry oil? A dry oil is a product formulation that isn’t slick or actually oily, it leaves more of a satin feel to the skin. This one dries quickly, yet still provides moisture. The finish is demi-matte.

This amazing dry oil not only feels luxurious on the skin, but it has a subtle guide colour and a very fine golden shimmer to it, making it the perfect self-tanner to wear out with residue layer still on. We have long loved our St Tropez Illuminators, which are the perfect highlighter and an essential component for skin finishing (kind of the makeup of the body), so this dry oil is almost a self-tanner and illuminator in one! We love that.

This product is most easily applied with bare hands or vinyl gloves. Shake bottle quickly, then spread on to desired area. This isn’t the darkest-developing formula, so those new to sunless tanning, or fair girls, this is for you! Deeper skin tones will love this product as more of a maintenance product for its more subtle glow and hydrating properties.

Pick yours up today – just because it’s fall, doesn’t mean you have to lose that bronze! In fact, I find keeping a slight tan all year round makes me feel vibrant and glowing 🙂 Come see us sunless tanning consultants with your questions. See you soon and happy tanning!

An Introduction to Skincare

I was once performing a facial for a wonderful client of ours, D, (what – we do facials?! YES) and were chatting away about my favourite skincare line, which we carry at Brun, Yum Gourmet Skincare. D was simply amazed that her favourite department store moisturizer was over double the cost of what she was about to spend on an amazing, spa-quality moisturizer chock full of active ingredients and low on additives, artificial fragrance and water. From Yum. With us. Buh-bye, $100 moisturizer.

Does this make any sense? Let’s talk about spa skincare, not drug or department store skincare. And then I’ll give you a little routine to follow at home.

To start off though, there are generally a lot of questions clients tend to have if they’re new to skincare. It’s kind of hard to tell where I should even start. Basically, getting a real live grownup skincare regime sounds daunting, but it’s not. And it’s definitely something that will start to matter more and more as time goes on. So if you are currently washing your face with a bar of soap, stop now. I really mean it. Stop now, come on down to the shop, and I will give you some samples of high-quality skincare, ASAP.

So what I mean by a “skincare regime” is basically cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, with a little SPF and exfoliation thrown in the mix. If you’re a woman, from time to time, or every day, you’re going to wear makeup, so you’ll have to cleanse your skin anyway. And if you are going to wear makeup, wouldn’t you like the smoothest, best feeling canvas you can possibly get so you can spend less time and money on makeup and […]
