Advantages: Blends nicely, streak free and no orange hands
Disadvantages: Tends to fall off as I have smaller hands
When it comes to fake tan, I'm a self confessed addict! I absolutely love fake tan. I've tried a lot of tanning mitts, sponges and even cotton wool to apply my fake tan, not afraid to say I prefer to use my hands.. even if I don't tend to get all the product off and my hands become orange! Just simply because I'm not wasting any of the product being soaked up by the mitt and is just more convenient for me. Odd I know!
The mitt is pretty much like a plain black glove made out of thin material on one side and velvet on the opposite side. It feels really soft against your skin, very silky. I believe it is made to fit all hand sizes as its quite a large mitt 9 inches long and 7 inches wide, so perfect for people with larger hands. When you first use the product, there is quite a synthetic smell to it but after the first use, the smell fades pretty quickly.
As I've never been a big fan of any kind of applicator for fake tan, I was reluctant to purchase this product but as it was such a good deal at only £4 I just had to give it a try seeing as I use 'St Tropez Tanning Mousse' on a weekly basis. I was very surprised at how even and streak free my tan was, the colour looked more natural and my skin glowed and a massive bonus no tell tale orange hands! The mitt is very easy to use, and apply the mousse extremely well to my skin not leaving any patches and blending the colour in perfectly.
When you apply your fake tan, you can apply the mousse or lotion straight onto the mitt and gently rub into your skin using circular motions. You will find that the during the first application that the mitt will soak up most of the tan, but the more you use it the less this will occur. Remember after removing the mitt to apply fake tan to the tops of your hands otherwise you will get tan lines around your wrist area.
I purchased this product off the official St Tropez website for about £4 which I think is a very good price for the quality of the product, and also for St Tropez themselves as there products are always quite expensive, so I was very pleased about the price. You should be able to purchase this product from Super-drug and Boots. I have not seen it in any supermarkets, in which case your best bet will definitely be either drug stores or purchasing online.
The downside with this product will have to be that I have small - medium hands and tend to find that if I'm not careful enough the mitt tends to fall off whilst applying the tan, which can cause an inconvenience. To improve I think they could provide three different sizes (small,medium and large) so people will smaller hands don't have trouble with the mitt falling off.
Overall a lovely product! Blends tanning product in well, leaving beautiful even glowing skin and best of all clean hands all for a very good price!
Summary: Lovely product!
