Review: Lancome Flash Bronzer Anti-Age

Review time! Today it’s Lancome Flash Bronzer Anti-Age, their first anti-aging self tanner for the face.

I know many a Flash Bronzer fan! I think this is because the colour seems to work well on Irish skin tones. I have one friend who has pretty much no pigmentation in her skin and no self tanners actually show up on her yet she loves the Flash Bronzer spray.

I gave the anti-ageing self tanner a go last week. It felt moisturising without being greasy. My skin has recently returned to it’s normal/combination state, the dry skin is no more. If I had dry skin right now I think this bronzer would have suited me better but as it stands it’s a little rich. In the interest of fairness I passed it on to my mum who has dry skin and is concerned about ageing skin. It has to be said, she’s a little biased as she is a big Lancome fan anyway but she promised she would judge this bronzer based on it’s own merits.

The good:

  • Contains SPF 15. Obviously this isn’t designed for sunbathing but at least it provides some environmental protection.
  • Easy to apply
  • Dries fast on dry skin
  • Vitamin E provides protection and soft skin
  • Contains Algusium C which is said to boost collagen production and provide hydration
  • Didn’t streak
  • Comes in two shades – Golden and Bronze
  • My Mum liked it. She said her skin felt moisturised and that the colour was subtle without a hint of orange. Winner.

The bad:

  • The usual dha tanning smell, but hey, what self tan doesn’t
  • It’s pricey at €35 but then again it’s a self tanner and anti-ageing product in one
  • May not be suitable for oily or spot prone skin

Have you tried any of the Lancome Flash Bronzer collection? What do you think of them?
