Body Bling- Tinted Body Moisturizer

With spring and summer right around the corner, I wondered how I would deal with my pasty white legs this year. In the past, I’ve tried self tanners and while they did “tan” my legs, I was constantly worried about streaks, color wearing off, and not being able to control the depth of the tan. Luckily for me and my legs, I’ve discovered Body Bling! Body Bling is a tinted body moisturizer that leaves your skin with a natural glowing tan. Best part: No streaks or unpleasant self-tanner odor! Just leaves a beautiful natural color, shimmer and glow!

“Body Bling is the #1 bronzer used by beauty professionals and consumers around the globe. A must-have in everyone’s beauty arsenal, this sunless tanning illuminator gives everyone sexy, beautiful, glowing skin…without the risk of sun damage. Body Bling makes it easy to look “lit from within” – every day, all year long!” ($42 for 4 oz. Available at, Henri Bendel, Fred Segal, Kitson and Dillard’s)

Body Bling is available in 2 color: Original (left) and Platinum (right).

Original looks very dark (as shown in swatch above), but it applies easily and absorbs quickly to give a natural sun kissed glow. 🙂 The color is build-able, so if you’re looking for a deeper tan, just apply more coats of the lotion. NO worries about streaks, looking too unnaturally dark, or unpredictable fading! With Body Bling, you apply when you want the color and wash off when you don’t. Also, unlike self tanners… the color washes easily off your hands after application… and legs when you’re ready of course!

While the Original is all about a natural tan, Platinum is all about providing a shimmery champagne glow. I think it’s perfect for the arms, shoulders, cheeks, and anywhere you want to highlight. My camera doesn’t do justice to the shimmer that Platinum gives…

Do I recommend this product? YES. If I had to choose between the two… I’d get Original. Why? I love being able to fake a tan in less than 2 minutes and not worry about it being streaky or unnaturally orange/dark. Also, at the end of the day… I can just wash it off. 🙂 You get the BLING without the commitment!!! Just perfect. 🙂

Until next time, stay pretty and glowing… inside and out.

        It’s a tinted moisturizer so it washes off!

    I used to work at an independent cosmetic boutique that carried Body Bling by Scott Barnes, and let me tell you: We could NOT keep that item in stock! Women that bought it ALWAYS bought it again. Great product!
