Summer Must Haves from Time Bomb

I love spending as much time as I can outside when there is good weather, it can be hard to come by in the UK! But while I love spending time out in the sun, I don't want to damage my skin in the slightest. I like to wear SPF at all times but it can make me look a little ghostly which is where these products come in.

The Time Bomb Holiday in a Bottle (£30) has been the one product I would use on my face when I go makeup free and I love how it looks on the skin. This isn't a fake tan, foundation or a stain but it is tan in a bottle - it's liquid sunshine for the skin! This is going to give the skin a sheer wash of colour to instantly add a healthy glow and tint to make it look as if you have spent a few hours out in the sun. It's available in two shades, I have the Sunkissed option that is a lighter, honeyed sunny glow. The other shade available is Suntanned which will provide a translucent sunny bronze to the skin.

When you pump this out, it looks grey which can be a bit of a shock at first but as you begin to blend it into the skin it turns into the most gorgeous tan shade that adjusts with all skin tones. This is an oil-free, paraben-free formula that is very comfortable to wear throughout the day. This product is pretty much fool-proof and I love the colour it gives the skin. I'm very pale on my face as I do wear a high SPF all of the time so this makes my face look much healthier and helps it to match the rest of my body on no makeup days. If you like to fake tan like I do, then this is a great product to use on your hands as well! I don't like to use fake tan on my hands as it always ends up in a state so this is great to make sure your fake tan goes undetectable. 

The Time Bomb OVER-EXPOSED Sun Damage Rescue is going to be a skin-saving product if you do spend the day out in the sun. This retails for £40 for 40ml and £70 for 70ml. This product can be used both morning and evening, I personally prefer to use it in the evening. It's going to renew the look and feel of dry, leathery skin, help to restore the skin's natural radiance and resilience while also visibly improving signs of long-term photo-damage. Photo-damage is the top reason that your skin shows signs of ageing as it's not just sunburns and chronic tanning that damages the skin, it's also everyday exposure to sunlight - even through windows! 

It's made a great difference to my skin. My skin has been feeling much more hydrated and smoother since I started using it. Even my skin's texture has been improving which is amazing as this is one of the main things I dislike about my skin. It's a slightly thicker cream but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and sinks in within just a few seconds. It leaves behind a gorgeous natural radiance on the skin so if you do use this in the morning, this is an added bonus!
