Hello hello hello fellow fake tan lovers.
I’m starting up a new blog series, called Battle Of The Tans (lols), where every few weeks I’ll be featuring a different fake tan on my blog and doing a review, and also showing you a picture of my legs, with one leg that has 0 fake tan on, and the other leg that has that particular fake tan on, that has been left to sink in for a couple of hours.
So yeah, that’s the plan, and I hope you enjoy the series!
The first in the series, is the St Tropez Express Bronzing Mist (best price is here).
Price range, of course there’s cheaper tans, and there’s also more expensive ones, however I’m honestly yet to find a cheaper one that works so well.
It makes my skin look airbrushed as well as tanned; the colour pay off is brilliant, a really deep, natural golden dark brown.
The longer you leave it on the darker it will go, and I usually apply it before bed, leave it on overnight and then wash it off in the morning, because that way I can see how dark I need to make my face makeup without it developing further throughout the day.
It does say one hour gives a light glow, two hours is a medium tan and three hours is the deepest tan it will achieve but I actually find it continues to get darker after 3 hours.
It doesn’t make my skin feel dry, even if I haven’t moisturised before using it if I’m in a rush, and it doesn’t cling to pores if I’ve recently shaved.
I feel like the tan lasts a long time too; if I’ve done a layer of this, I won’t need to tan for about 3 or 4 days afterwards, and even then I do still have a light glow, I just prefer my tan to be darker.
It applies so evenly and flawlessly, and the patchiness is so much better than I’ve had with other brands. All tans will eventually go patchy to some degree when they’ve been worn for a while and not exfoliated off or moisturised, but the patchiness I experience with this is very minimal, unlike brands I’ve tried where I constantly look like I’ve got a skin disease within 2 days of applying it.
The bottle is so convenient to use, with a spray nozzle, so it’s pretty much like giving yourself a mini spray tan at home.
I’m actually not sure if it’s okay to use this on your face, I don’t think it says you can’t, but I do use it on mine. I inhale like they tell you to during a spray tan, then hold the bottle at arms length and spray it across my face, so that I just get a light, natural looking covering, as I don’t want my face to be as dark as my body as I’ll obviously be using makeup on it too.
All in all, this is my current favourite tan, and the best one I’ve ever used. It’s pretty much faultless, which is brilliant for me after years for being orange and patchy!
As I said, you can grab it cheapest here.
I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful, and I’ll speak to you soon for the next Battle Of The Tans blog post!
All my love BGP xx
