Peter Thomas Roth skincare products have been a favorite of the Advice Sisters for over a decade (check out our reviews through our search box).
Now we’re sharing our secret weapon to add a glow without looking “faux” during the dreariest days of Winter and save our skin from the sun’s damaging rays — the Peter Thoms Roth Radiant Instant Mineral Brush-On Bronzer Sunscreen SPF 30 ($35).
A Really Good Faux Glow
For starters, the mineral powder bronzer that adds a touch of life to pale faces and bodies. It also has SPF 30 protection from the sun’s damaging rays.
The all-in-one brush in a tube packaging is also travel-friendly. Pull off the cap, touch the brush to your skin, and dust it on easily and swiftly, anywhere.
This is also good for all skin types, even for those with sensitive skin. The actives are Titanium Dioxide 16% and Zinc Oxide 3%. *Note: SPF 30 is acceptable for every day but you still need to re-apply it every couple of hours and if your skin is in contact with water (or your perspire).
Thankfully, this powder is mineral based, because that means the bronzed look you’ll get is soft and looks like it could be from your real skin tone. But there is a tiny bit of shimmer in it so it doesn’t just lie there too flat and matte.
If you really want more bronze color you can add more by layering it, but start with a light touch and see where you want to take it from there.
The Right Way To Apply Bronzer
To get a natural look (you don’t want to look like “The Donald”) just press the brush against your skin to start the powder flowing, and lightly brush iy against the top of your forehead, your cheekbones, and down along your jawline. If you do it correctly the bronzer will make sort of a “3” shape on either side of your face. If you can’t see enough bronzer to suit your taste, just go over it again.
Try this with your favorite foundation or BB or CC cream, or use it on bare skin after you’ve applied your other skincare products. We don’t think we’re giving this up even when it’s Summer, because it will help even out a real tan, or continue to add a believable glow to those (wisely) completely avoid the sun.
