Rasta's Hemp Bronzing Elixir Review

Rasta Hemp Bronzing Elixir. 
Fragrance: Raspberry Burst

Feel: The one main thing that sells me on the lotion is the feel. I hate putting on lotion that is thick and so difficult to rub in. Then when you are tanning you feel like you could slide across the bed because the lotion is just melting off you. For Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir it’s definitely not the case. The lotion is very light which makes it rub on thin and smoothly, which for guys is a plus with all the arm and leg hair! One positive about this is that a little goes a long way. When the lotion spreads on easy you are getting more for your money than a lotion that you have to cake on. I used a 0.7 oz sample and usually I find it’s not enough for my whole body but I ended up having some left over. After my tan, the lotion had pretty much absorbed into my skin and I did not feel the need to wipe myself down before putting my clothes on. Another pet peeve of mine is when you leave the tanning salon and any time you feel hot, you can feel the lotion still melting off your skin. Again, I went the whole day forgetting that I had put the Rasta lotion on this morning. In all, the quality of the lotion is up on my favourites. If you are big on feel then I definitely recommend getting Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir.

Smell: the scent of Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir lotion is called Raspberry Burst, and it definitely smells that way. I am not a huge fan of Raspberry scented lotion, but if you are a fruit lover, it definitely has that nice, strong fruit smell. Most lotions scent change on the skin after tanning. For Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir is does change a bit, but not a crazy amount that you feel like you need to shower. That raspberry smell still comes out after the tan and thank god it’s not rotten raspberry. I bet if you add a tanning after moisturizers when you are done it will take away any of that after tan odour.



Bronzers: Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir has mild bronzers to give you that extra boost but not to make you streak or go orange. This one is mild so you still are getting that extra help with the color but you do not have to worry about streaking. This lotion has my favourite type of bronzers, the ‘worry  free’. A lot of people do not want to spend the time before getting in the bed trying to rub their lotion on perfectly to not go striped. However, if you are one who likes to see immediate results then I would suggest going for something with a strong bronzer. One thing I do with any lotion, no matter how strong the bronzers are, is always wipe in between your fingers right after applying! Even with the smallest amount of bronzers it can still turn your skin orange and that is the worst place for it to happen. It is hard to cover your hands!

Ingredients: What I really liked with the Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir is the first three ingredients. The three ingredients are water, Aloe and Barbadensis (organic Aloe Vera) leaf juice. With any lotion I want the ingredients to be natural and moisturizing for your skin. What is better that Aloe and water! The one thing about this lotion is you can feel those natural ingredients when you put it on. If it rubs on smooth and absorbs fast, you know there are good ingredients. Through the rest of the ingredients you constantly see organic, organic and organic. Who wouldn’t prefer an organic lotion to a chemically compounded one?  I always look at the ingredients of my lotion before putting it on and organic, hemp style lotions like Rasta’s always win.

Overall: Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir is something I would buy for my tanning. I always use lotion for tanning because it has so many benefits like giving you up to 70% more of a tan depending on your skin and preventing pre-aging. I am very picky when it comes to spending my money, especially on lotions, but I would buy Rasta’s products. They passed all my tests from smooth application to natural ingredients, and not to mention it worked! I feel that if you are going to buy a lotion, buy one that applies easier and lighter so you end up using less and saving your money. With Rasta, your lotion should last you longer than others. Also, for guys the scent is not too girly and the bottle is more boyish so you don’t have to worry about carrying around a hot pink bottle that smells like cotton candy or girly perfume. I would give Rasta’s Hemp Bronzing Elixir a 8 / 10. The scent was a little strong on the raspberry and did change a bit after tanning. Also, the bronzers were good but I was expecting a bit more from them. However, in the end the positives defiantly outweigh the negatives.  I would for sure use this product again.
