Moisturizing Coconut Bronzer

August 6, 2015

Good morning beautiful people,

how is your summer so far? I love warm days, spending my time at the beach, I love to get tanned, but being pregnant seems to bring up my internal temperature by at least 10 degrees and this is definitely way too hot for me. Actually, by nature my skin is really pale, can you imagine, a few years ago I couldn’t even wear white clothes, you couldn’t see the difference between naked skin and dress 🙂 I don’t really want go back to my old pale skin! Laying in the sun for hours is currently too much for me, you cannot believe how hot this summer in Seattle is. Everybody usually keeps saying that Seattle is a rainy city but since I live here, I didn’t experience that.  Anyway, indoor tanning is not an option for me, I don’t want to do it during my pregnancy…My only option to get tanned is to go outside in the morning before it’s getting too hot and using a natural lotion.


When CHARLES HENRY contacted me and told me about their new bronzer product, I  was really happy to try it. It was just the perfect timing!  CH1 is the name of the lotion, it is a DHA-free bronzer, with natural oils such as argan, coconut, and hemp seed oil, so that it hydrates your skin. It can be used for outdoor tanning, as well as a everyday moisturizer or prior to UV tanning. It will increase the melanin production, aide in anti-aging and skin firming, as well as keep the skin extra hydrated to help prevent burning/peeling.

In the last weeks during the mornings, I used to go down at the apartment community’s pool, just relaxing and enjoying the sun. I also tried the new lotion.

The first impression is really good, the bottle looks elegant and high-quality, smells fab, with a coconut – vanilla scent, the consistence is really good.  My skin feels super soft and it seems to extend the length of my tan without leaving any streaks or unevenness.  I have to say, I really like the lotion. Thank you CHARLES HENRY for this great product!

However, I used the lotion just for outdoor tanning, I didn’t try it for indoor tanning like UV tan or spry tan. And as as a daily moisturizer, I’m using my oil for preventing stretch marks 😉


I like this new DHA-free bronzer, my skin feels super soft and it seems to extend the length of my tan without leaving any streaks or unevenness!

Have an amazing sunny day


Are you guys using any bronzer products? How about indoor, what products do you use there?

    You look so beautiful and I love your pictures, always so top notch! I used bronzer from Victoria secret, it did the job nicely. Stay out of the sun too much, or you’ll be like me later in life, sun spots all over my face….uggg I despise them! I need professional skin service to remove and sooo expensive!

    See you soon!
