I was a little scared at first as I assumed it would be a little orange, when applying it the consistency is much runnier that any other tan I have used. I use a mitt, apply it to the area in long sweeps before buffing it in using circular motions. It’s quick, easy and goes on with no streaks however be sure to use only a little on your hands. The colour is very dark when you apply it, I mean shockingly dark (see Katie Price, she does have a crazy amount on)! Therefore make sure you apply the tan just before going to bed and wash it off in the morning. It dries quickly so you will be able to put pj’s on soon after but be careful as you may a little colour left on bed sheets (a hot wash will sort it out).
The picture above is me with just one layer and having washed it off in the morning, sorry it’s a rubbish photo but you get to see the colour quite well. I don’t have a before picture as I try to stay fake tanned as much as possible but I am very pale, naturally about a Mac NW/NC20 possibly slightly paler in the winter.
It has no alcohol or parabens which is always a plus, has a slight fake tan smell in the morning but just be sure to wash it off before leaving the house. It lasts about 5/7 day’s on me but some times I do apply it a few days in a row if I want to be very dark. I’ve used the Medium as well as the Darker Than Dark colours and I wouldn’t say there is that much between them, this tan isn’t for you if you want just a light glow.
As always keep it well moisturised and exfoliate prior to application.
At under £16 I think it is quite a reasonable prize which should last about 3 months, even with regular application.
