Heyy heyy bloggettes! :)
The suns shining, the birds are tweeting... and the fake tan's being dusted off. What does this mean?
Well ok.. not quite, but almost, so today I decided to get out the trusty fake tan. I have a few favourites brands which i find work well for me. They are...
1. Garnier Ambre Solaire No-streaks Bronzer Dry Body Mist
This is a spray on product, which you build up over time.
Very easy to apply.
Good golden colour tan.
Affordable- around £7.00.
Difficult to tell where you have applied as it is a clear mist.
Sometimes end up streaky or patchy.
Unlike the can actually states- it doesn't actually dry instantly, so I find there is a need for rubbing it in to make it less streaky- which can amount into orange hands... :/
Difficult to apply to back of legs.
2. Johnsons Holiday Skin Body Lotion
A simple moisturising product which has a built in self tanner which builds up after daily application.
Beautiful natural looking tan.
Easy to apply and build up.
Cheap! I got mine from the pound shop!
Takes a while to absorb, so can be transferred easily to clothes.
Needs to be rubbed in really well to avoid streaking.
3. St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse
Before I had bought this product, i'd heard a LOT about it. Dubbed as the cheap as chips version of St Tropez Instant Tanning Mousse, I was curious to try it out, never having had tried the St Tropez version before. I was very pleasantly surprized and happy with the look I got from the easy to use product.
Builds a beautiful colour over 4-6 hours, after which you wash it off to reveal stunningly tanned skin.
Cheappppp! Mine was only around £4.00, and for a St Tropez compared product, I think it's a bargain!
Instantly bronzes, so you can go out while it is still developing.
Lasts for around 5 days before re-application is needed.
Drys ultra quick, so can easily streak. But this streaking problem is not very noticable when the product is washed off, so messy application is fine!
Messy, can get everywhere!
Make sure you wash hands after use- the only fake tan ive ever got really bad 'orange paws' with!
This was the tan which I used today, to help me blend in with all the sun worshippers in the park who were wayyy ahead of me in the tanning stakes.
When applying I didnt have a tanning glove to hand, so, creative as I am, I used cling film over my hands, to stop them becoming orange! This was actually one of my better ideas, and my hands are now tango-free :D.
The actual tan on my legs and arms went well (with only one patch that i missed on the back of my legs, whoopppss!) and it developed into a very natural looking colour! Im so happy with St Moriz! A great product, and i would definately recommend buying it!
So... what is you favourite tanning product? And are you enjoying the beautiful sunshine as much as i am?
