Summer means shorts, swimsuits, sundresses and tank tops — in other words, showing a little more skin. But if you feel like your skin is still in winter mode, you can give it an instant glow-up with the Marc Jacobs Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick. The instant (and waterproof) bronzing stick is now on sale at Sephora, and you should consider stocking up.
Marc Jacobs Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick, $19.50 (Orig. $39)
The all-over body bronzer essentially works the same way as the bronzer you put on your face. It can give you a slight natural-looking tan and blur skin imperfections, and thanks to its coconut base, it also hydrates skin at the same time. Simply swipe the stick on your skin — legs, arms, whatever — and blend it in using your hands or a brush. The lightweight formula doesn’t feel oily or sticky, and it won’t transfer onto your clothes.
“I love this product so much!” wrote one Sephora customer in the reviews. “I went on a bit of a cream bronzer buying and testing binge, and this color (Tan-Tastic Light) is absolutely perfect on me. I don’t put it right on my skin from the stick when I’m using it like a traditional bronzer — I use a brush and run it over the top and apply onto my face that way, and it’s absolutely stunning. It lasts well, it blends perfectly and it’s pretty buildable.”
However, some customers mentioned they had a hard time blending the product, and that’s because this stuff dries fast and, as mentioned, is transfer-resistant. So, you need to move quickly to blend or try using a little moisturizer on your skin before applying. If your skin is really dry, your skin will absorb the bronzer faster, like many self-tanning products. (Pro tip: Apply a light moisturizer to your knees, elbows and any other dry areas before applying.)
The Marc Jacobs Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick is a limited-edition product, so if you want to experience the quick glow-up this summer, get it ASAP before it’s gone. The fact that it’s on sale is just a bonus!
