Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Face Mist
Advantages: Nice to apply and feels fresh on your face, gives a natural tan
Disadvantages: Price if over £8 is a lot for just 75ml so get it when its on offer!
As I am naturally quite pale, I often try to make myself look more glowing by using some fake tan, but as the skin on my face is sensitive and spot prone I always struggled to find a good fake tan for my face. I have tried Dove's moisturiser with added tanning and the Olay but found they smelt far too strongly and brought me out in spots
As I had used the Ambre Solaire No Streak Bronzer Dry Mist on my body and found it suited my skin the best I thought I would give their face mist a try.
The Dry Face Mist comes in Fair-Light Skin and Medium-Dark Skin. I opted for the Fair to Light Skin option as I did not want to look orange. All I wanted was a little colour to make me look and feel better. The tanning spray comes in a 75ml spray can with an aerosol spray applicator. The can is a creamy-brown in colour with Ambre Solaire's logo and name at the top, 'no streaks bronzer in a brown box and a quick direction of use with a picture at the bottom. On the back is a full list of ingredients and a more detailed directions of use.
Ambre Solaire claim this to give a naturally looking, streak free tan whilst the Apricot extract leave skin feeling moisturised and supple. As I have dry patches of skin the moisturising benefit really does appeal. As I have now been using the mist on and off for a year I thought I could now give it a thorough review and I have to say I love it! It is also the only fake tan for your face that has never brought me out in spots! Amazing!
Direction of Use
To apply simply shake the can, close your eyes and hold back any hair, and hold around 30 cm away from the face, then spray for no more than 5 seconds. I always do this after my face is cleansed and toned. The spray is a dry mist so dries instantly on your skin.
Results & Verdict
The mist has a natural fragrance to it when first applied which I associate with the Apricot extract, but after an hour or so you can get a faint fake tan smell, but this is only a light smell to it and it isn't too overpowering like the Dove and Olay versions. I also like the fact it is a spray as this makes it so easy to use and apply and you don't have to rub it in, which is where I had problems with other brands. The mist feels lovely on your skin and my face felt moisturised when it was applied and for hours afterwards. Within 3 hours the tan will begin to develop and you are left with a light natural looking tan.
With using the fair to light option the depth of the tan is very light, but if you have a few applications the tan does build but this is a gradually increase which means you don't go from being pale to looking lie you've been on the sunbed for 10 hours. The tan had a golden look to it when it develops which is very close to my natural tan, and even if you build the tan up it still never looks orange. It doesn't sweat off or flake at all and if you stop using it, it slowly wears off.
I would say that from when you apply it the tan will last for around 4 days if you are regularly cleansing, toning and exfoliating. I tend to top it up every 3 days to maintain the tan and it never becomes too heavy but stays a natural glow. I have used it to build up a deeper tan prior to going on holiday and I applied it once a day for a week and this worked great and still looked natural.
The tan costs around £8.50 from Superdrug and Boots stores but last week I did buy it from Morrison's Supermarket for £3.00!! This was advertised as an offer so I am not sure if it was a promotion or not, but nevertheless it's a good buy at over half the price of the RRP!
The tanning mist is great for those wanting a natural tan, easy to use, not messy and gives a great natural look!
Summary: A great find to stop me looking so pale
