Today’s post is a massive first for me as this post is all about my FIRST EVER fake tan experience. Yes that’s right never in my 27 years have a tried any form of fake tan. The reason being is that with me being quite pale I’m always so scared I’m going to look like an orange and that it will all go very wrong. I have used a gradual monitoring lotion years ago but thats not quite the same is it haha.
So the lovely team at SkinnyTan sent me out some of their products to try.
As I’m going on holiday next week I decided to try out their ‘Tan and Tone Oil’ out as it says it develops in 8 hours. Before I applied the oil I used there exfoliating mitt and their ‘Pre-tan primer’
The pre tan primer naturally exfoliates the skin, helps the tan to go on more evenly and it also helps to extend the life of your tan, PERFECT. Once I had done that and washed it off I was ready to try out the tanning oil.
I used the dual tanning mitt to apply the oil evenly. I decided that because I was going to work that I would try out the product on my legs. I only used a little bit of the product just because I was nervous as to how dark it would turn out. The application itself went really well its was super easy to apply and the mitt felt velvety and soft. I as carful when it came to my knees and ankle area as I’ve heard their most complicated to get right first time. After an hour I could see the change in colour, and after the full 8 hours of development I could see a lovely natural glowy tan, NO STREAKS either!. Although I do have a slight sign of patchy knees haha.
Here’s what my legs turned out like:
Was very impressed with the tanning oil and the primer and feel that as a first time fake tanner it turned out well. I love the smell that these products have and will definitely be used them again. I would 100% recommend them!, very impressed. Also I must mention that for me and my skin this tan lasted around 4 days and after a few washed came straight off :). You can purchase these and see more of their range at your local Superdrug store or online on the Superdrug website.
