It’s been a long time since I last had to cut open a product tube to get every last bit out of it, and that was the case with Miracle Skin Transformer a few months ago. I wasn’t ready to kiss it goodbye yet! Fast forward to now—I’ve been testing out the latest in the MST lineup, Miracle Skin Transformer BODY with SPF 20, while hoping for the same great results. This new product promises to moisturize and enhance skin, while offering moderate sun protection. It’s kind of like tinted moisturizer for your body, and it adds a glow. Available in three shade choices (Sheer Enhancer, Glow Enhancer for light skin, and Bronze Enhancer), I gave the Glow Enhancer a test drive on my extra pale, extra extra dry skin.
The tint it delivered was very subtle, and the glow was just the right amount of glimmer without being overdone. The glimmering particles are very small, so no need to worry about making yourself look like you just took a dip in a pool of body glitter. This isn’t your regular moisturizer, it doesn’t feel like one to me—due to its naturally-derived silicone base. It glides over the skin without streaking, and just feels smooth and comfortable. While it does help with dry skin, if you’re extremely dry, you’ll probably still want to use a moisture-rich cream. Miracle Skin Transformer BODY isn’t something I would recommend for taking its place, more like what you’d use when wearing a dress without hosiery, and for when you want your skin to have an ethereal glow. This looks beautiful on the arms and decollete too, everyone will want to know what you do to make your skin look so radiant.
This product contains caffeine encapsulated microspheres and blue-green algae to target cellulite, but to be perfectly honest, NOTHING is going to help me in that area and I can’t offer any testimonial in that department. I can tell that the hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil helps in the hydration area, and makes my legs and arms look great with a light sheen—minus any stickiness or overpowering fragrance.
Miracle Skin Transformer Body with SPF 20 is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, and triclosan.
