Spotlight Thursday: Sunsoak Age-Defying Self Tanner

It snowed here at the Hydroxatone Headquarters this past weekend, leaving me with dreams of exotic tropical getaways. While I wish I could take a vacation right now (and my trip to Seattle this coming weekend doesn’t count) I’m going with the next best thing: Hydroxatone Sunsoak Age-Defying Self Tanner.

If you’re like me, you might be wary. As a woman with porcelain skin, I’ve had some pretty bad experiences with self tanners. I can never get the lotion spread evenly, so I end up either missing spots or having too much on the more bony areas. And when it does work, it often leaves me looking orange. The proof is in my driver’s license photo, taken when I was just 16 years old for my permit, when I clearly did not know any better.

I hope they never make me change this photo. Yes, those are two single strands of hair framing my face.


Anyway, back to Sunsoak.


What it does: Sunsoak Age-Defying Self Tanner gradually builds a gorgeous tan over time. Plus, it actually diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so you look younger, radiant and sun-kissed from head to toe. It also moisturizes and provides antioxidants!

Who’s it for: Anyone who wants a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow! And for those of us who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it will do that too. Sensitive skin? Sunsoak is gentle, and dermatologist tested to be non-irritant.

What’s in it?:

  • Bronzia17 Complex– Proprietary combination of state-of-the-art tanning agents that leave a streak-free long-lasting natural tan with highly potent anti-aging, hydrating and firming ingredients, antioxidants and skin-soothing extracts
  • Argireline – Shown to minimize the appearance of wrinkles with visible results in as little as four weeks
  • Hyaluronic Acid – Hydrates your skin and literally plumps it from within.
  • CaffeineA delicious way to start the day I mean, increases the appearance of firm skin
  • SymCalmin – Calms and soothes skin
  • DHA & Erythrulose – Produces a healthy and uniform tan

Why we love it: We love the gradual glow that comes with continued use. Because it takes time to show, you never look orange and  the glow is so even, no one would ever notice if you missed a spot!

Fun facts: Did you know caffeine increases the appearance of firm skin? As much as I wish drinking it did the same, this fact is sadly only true for topical application.
