The Budget Fake Tan You Need In Your Routine.


I've been testing out fake tans for the past few months in a bid to discover the one that requires the least amount of effort because A. I am lazy and B. Tanning is up there on the list of my least favourite things to do. 

I'm also not very good at it.

I don't exfoliate and 9 times out of 10 I only remember to moisturise when I'm fully clothed by which point it is highly unlikely that I will bother. I've ruined multiple pristine white bed sheets and I've succumbed to multiple insults from colleagues asking why it looks like I've spread dirt up my arms.

My tanning 'routine' is merely me hoping for the best.

Which is why this little gem comes in so perfectly, I've been trying a few on rotation over the past few weeks, I loved the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Mousse and didn't really see much point in buying any others but then I was sent this, I am in no way obliged to mention this product or write anything about it I just so happen to really bloody love it, plus it's the cheapest of the bunch.

For me it's perfect because it's not too intense, it develops in as little as an hour but I like to leave it on overnight, it doesn't transfer onto bed sheets and the smell is actually almost quite pleasant. The colour seems to keep on developing through the next day which ends up leaving you with a gorgeous glow, obviously the amount you put on/the time you leave it to develop will determine the intensity of the tan so really it's trial and error.

One thing that makes it stand out from the rest is how natural it looks, no streaks, no orange tint, my only complaint would be that it went a tad patchy on my chest but after my second shower it seemed to settle so possibly my fault. Otherwise the colour intensity lasted around 4 days, it faded naturally, is super cheap and dare I say it, a little bit fool proof. Plus it completely blows St Tropez/Clarins out of the water.

I did use a tanning mitt to apply so I can't comment on whether you would get the same effect by using your hands but for £3.49 a tanning mitt is probably a good investment if you wanna get serious about tanning regularly.

For £4.99 I would seriously urge you to give this a try.
