Every Thursday Rachael Robbins brings you the best of her DD’s!

Be tan without skin cancer! Be bronzed without being broke!!

So, I just got home from shooting ‘Bikini Bloodbath 3: Bikini Christmas” (which is why I missed my DD’s post last week) and my wardrobe consisted of a different bikini each day topped off with a Santa hat, of course. Just another normal day in the life of Rachael Robbins. We all know that tan fat looks better then white fat, so I was determined to take all my Meg’s Make-up tanning knowledge and apply it, literally, to my person. So I started by slathering my body with Dove Energy Glow in Medium to Dark (oh yeah, I was not messing around) which made me nice and golden. And to get my face up to speed I used my fav bronzer from Sugar. But something strange happened: During some down time I was shopping at the local CVS (that was as glamorous as the shopping gets in Plainville CT!) and something caught my eye! At first I thought “Why are they selling Bobbi Brown cosmetics at the CVS?” At closer glance I saw that it was not Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Block compact, but Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Bronzer! Which looks exactly the same as its pricy counter part! I chose Waikiki Strip which is a beautiful peachy bronzer ! With just enough shimmer to make me look dewy and fresh (even after a week of only four hours of sleep a night!). It looks gorgeous as a highlighter on my shoulders and collar bone. And even worked amazingly as an eye shadow, giving me that J-Lo bronze look (and let’s face it, J-Lo has achieved the epitome of Bronze!)

Ladies, what’s your best DD find for bronzer? Any other Physician Formula products I need?
