“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Bronzer / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Bronzes, „
This is a nifty little item from Virgin Vie (Richard Branson's cosmetic company). Virgin Vie now have stores in major shopping centres (e.g. Trafford Centre) and outlet parks (such as McArthur Glen). In addition to that they sell their products via agents who come to your home and have "Virgin Vie Parties", you can order also via the website.
OK so this fabulous product I asked dooyoo to add to their list as it is so brilliant! There is 150ml of wonderful body crackle in this can which you spray out like an aerosol. You shake the can and spray it into your hand, and it expands like a mousse. Quickly rub it onto the body and you get a subtle golden shimmer across your skin - an instant fix to banish white bits, or make you sparkle on a night out.
If you don't have time or effort for fake tan, or are worried it may look a bit odd or orange against your skin, try this. It is not a fake tan, it is temporary and can be washed off - a bit like makeup for skin. What I like about it is that it only gives a very subtle colour and enhances the colour that you already are. If you are tanned from holiday it will give you an extra glow. If you are white in the winter, it will just take the edge off your colour enough.
One thing I will say is it does make you sparkle - not like huge bits of glitter, but the shimmer does transfer (not the colour though) so just beware of that.
I like to use it mostly in winter when I am going out because I can never be bothered to use fake tan, especially as it always looks a bit orange in winter- but I hate to be deathly white too.
It crackles as it comes out of the can and cools the skin as it does so, which is quite refreshing especially if you are hot.
The price is about £11.50 but a bottle of this stuff, lasts me about a year usually depending how frequently I use it - maybe once or twice a month max??
The smell is unusual, but not that horrible fake tan smell like other types of bronzer, it smells quite nice actually!It also make skin feel nice and soft in my opinion.
I really like it and can't reccommend it highly enough.
