Product Test Drive: Kismet Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion

While I was recovering from being sick (I swear I still am, a month later), I had a birthday party to go to, and felt like I needed some color so I'd at least look better. I didn't have a lot of time to get ready, and it was time to rally. I immediately grabbed this Kismet Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion I was sent for review, and boom, bronzed legs and arms in an instant. I looked better and avoided the dreaded, "You look sick" phrase. Everyone assumed I was just back from vacation! Check it out: 

(Kismet Opulent Body Lotion)

What Is It?
  • Bronzing lotion for the body that gives instant results, but non-committal
  • Keep (or fake) that end-of-summer glow! 

  • Kismet means "destiny" or "fate"
  • Created by Caitlin Picou, who learned from the pros while working in NYC and doing product development for lines like TIGI
  • Inspired by having beauty that works with clothing and enhances the whole look--fashion is from head to toe!

10 Reasons Why I Love Kismet Bronzing Lotion:
  • Instant results--no waiting around for the color to appear
  • Survived the heat, sweat, and a Little White Dress
  • Smells amazing--like vanilla
  • Moisturizing--I didn't need lotion, so it saved me even more time
  • No rubbing or streaking
  • Dries quickly--clothes on in 5 minutes
  • Infused with aloe vera, chamomile, and green tea
  • Non-greasy
  • No orange color!
  • Washes off, so no commitment!

Additional Info:
  • $19 for 4 oz. and can be purchased here.
  • Doesn't stain
  • Perfect for the self-tan novice--it's a bronzer and non-committal 
  • I have dry skin and this moisturized it well, but if your skin flakes, try moisturizing beforehand.
  • This is a bronzer, so there will be a slight, faint sheen, but overall there is color
  • I like it best on my legs, but it can be used on the arms, legs, and decolletage.
  • Washes off in water
  • Allow to dry 5 minutes before dressing.
  • Not for the face
  • I have a medium skin tone, and enjoyed my natural-looking bronze.
  • Once I received the bronzing lotion, I played around with it and liked the results, but it wasn't until that birthday party that I fell in love and got to really test it out. I had color on my arms and legs that lasted 90 degree temps until I took a shower that night.
  • If you're looking for a little color on your body, that is easy and fast to apply, but washes off in the shower, I highly suggest Kismet Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion.
