He-Shi Rapid 1 Hour Tan

It’s no secret I love fake tan, I have a whole video to prove it (here) and after finding my two favourites (He-Shi Liquid tan and Lauren’s Way Glam Tan) I pretty much stopped looking for anything better.

Recently I’ve been getting up at 5.30am and heading to the gym which has really effected how I fake tan. Usually I fake tan in the evening and wash it off in the morning but I simply haven’t got time for that before 6am and there is no way I could go to the gym with a guide colour!

I decided the only way I was going to have a tan was by using a quick tan which I could leave on for a couple of hours during the day, whilst hibernating at home before washing off the guide colour. I decided to go for the He-shi Express  Hour tan which takes only one hour to develop. In the past I had used it for just 1 hour and although it added a great little glow for me it was too light so I decided to wait it out for about 3.5 hours as I think it gets too dark after 8 hours (plus I didn’t have that time)

When I washed it off I was left with a beautiful dark but very natural tan with no streaks at all. I would say that it is a little drying but I just made sure I moisturised daily. The best thing about this tan is that usually I am asked which tan I have on, with this I get asked if I’ve been on holiday or if I’ve been to the beach. It’s as dark as I would like it but looks very natural and I love that you can wash it of any time after 1hour for your desired effect. I even had very knowledgable beauty bloggers ask if I had been away!

The He-shi Rapid 1 Hour tan is a great new asset to my fake tan collection and I can’t wait to use it again, it may even become my favourite as it’s lasted a good 6 days with no patchy, uneven fading!

    I really need to try these fast developing tans! I hate having to wait overnight for the colour to take! This sounds like a good one. Im a fan of their gradual tanner so I'll probably like this one too!
