BYE BYE MILK BOTTLES
I don’t usually fake tan due to previous dreaded orange experiences thus being the first fake tan product I’ve tried in over 8 years. As you can see from the before and after image of my legs above (please excuse the bruises), I am naturally pale and using this tan gave me a healthy colour and glow which I actually like. This is a rare occurrence for me due to not suiting a tan. Weird?
The product has a slight red undertone which will give the skin a great bronzed look especially if you’re wanting that hot, sun kissed, European tan. There is a hint of colour when it was first applied then he colour will intensity over 3 hours and develop for a maximum of 8 hours. The above is the result of this after applying a thin layer. The colour can be buildable but I do prefer it like this, leaving me an even and streak free result. I find that it lasts a good 5 days with good care and doesn’t become uneven when fading.
This is a foam texture making applying the product quick and easy as compared to cream based products as well as quick drying without leaving a residue. I was able to wear clothes once I’m done without staining my clothes or bedding. Like any other fake tan products, it will cling onto the dry patches therefore leaving a patchy result as well as emphasising the dryness. My legs get dry easily so I do need to ensure that they are well exfoliated and moisturised a day before applying.
This product is paraben free meaning that there isn’t any preservatives. The pump mechanism makes it easy to control the product amount. There is a biscuit like smell. Not nice yet not disgusting. It isn’t strong so if you’re sensitive to smell, this won’t bother you. I like this product and would start tanning a bit just to add some colour. Don’t worry, I haven’t left my legs like this.
