St Tropez Skin Illuminator – Violet



Now that St Tropez has their full range of 3 illuminators I thought I would share my thoughts on my violet edition, the one that came out before the rose and gold edition but is still keeping its ground in the new packaged larger size (50ml, was 30ml).

So illuminator, what the hell is that, well when skin is looking a bit dull, grey and lifeless these are the type of products to use, they contain the illumination ingredient (Mica) and this put out straight forward is glitter but to an incredibly fine ground mixed mineral form ( some are more noticeable, so actually create sheen and illumination).

So is this disco ball or sheen, this product in my honest opinion is sheen (not as sheen as some other products I have used but still sheen) and the sheen is blue/violet, to the eye the particles are undetectable and you have to really, really look close to seem them, so that’s great…

The smell, not very nice, is being honest. The easiest way to describe this is waxy smelling and it will be because the ingredient in this is Cera Alba and this is the chemical name for bees wax, so does this mean the consistency is Waxy… Yes not thick, but it definitely is waxy and I wouldn’t recommend putting this all over your face without diluting with moisturiser.

Ingredient’s wise this isn’t too bad but I have seen much better;

Bees wax and Vitamin E are probably the only good ones.

And the BAD ones are Every PARABEN under the sun, and this contains them, methyl, ethyl, propyl etc.

So St Tropez Skin Illuminators can be found at their site for £12 or I bought mine feelunique for less but seems to longer be available.
