I tend to use this product after having been on holiday and when I want to even my tan out a bit.
This is a hydrating lotion which promises to give a beautiful instant, even, natural looking golden tan which is non-transferable so you can tan and go. It is apparently infused with softening oils and prickly pear extract to soothe and hydrate skin
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING..
The product comes in a 150ml plastic tube with a flip up/flip down lid to close. To dispense the product, all I have to do is give the tube a squeeze and out comes the tanning lotion.it is quite dark when it first comes out of the tube and my initial thought was that it was going to be way too dark even with a tan. However, when it is massaged into the skin, it doesn't look as dark. It has a slight smell which is almost floral but not obvious like some tanning lotions and it certainly doesn't linger too long on the skin.
APPLYING THE PRODUCT...
To apply, the product should be massaged gently into the skin, making sure that there are no definite lines. I find that its best to use a tanning mitt but because of the nature of the product it does go onto the skin evenly and leaves no tell tale lines.
REMOVING THE PRODUCT...
To remove the tanning product, simply wash off with soap and water. If not fully washed off, although it says its non transferable, you will end up with the product on sheets!
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
This costs £12.50 from major department stores although there is a range of prices if you have a search on the internet.
Not the best product I have ever tried. It does make some promises which it upholds such as the fact that it does give my skin some moisture. The product is easy to apply and is absorbed easily into my skin leaving no greasy residue and it does dry nice and quickly.
However that said, I don't think that for me it delivers on the tan front. It is very dark when it comes out of the tube but as I work it into my skin I am left with at best a very slight tanning of my skin but nothing which makes me think that the product is worth the money.
The product is easy to remove but the down side is that it comes off onto bedding. Although I don't o out in the rain with the tan on, I wouldn't chance it since it washes off so easily with just normal soap and water.
Some decent aspects but for me not worth the money and I would rather use a self tanning lotion which whilst trickier to apply at least looks like a tan.
Thanks for reading
