No matter how amazing I think the product is I need to be fair and some of the cons that I have come across is that some people say when it fades it left them looking scaly? Personally this hasn't happened to me and the only reason why I dont think it has is because I constantly moisturise (with Palmers Cocoa Butter). Also the colour can fade quite quickly through out the week which can make the up keep a bit of a pain.
I first started my addiction with the normal colour and I have now moved on to the dark! It's such an amazing product.....the colour hasn't got any sort of orange to it and goes a lovely golden brown. It smells soapy too, instead that awful wet dog, biscuity smell you get with a lot of other self tanners and it's a very fluffy, light mousse.
If I have a special occasion coming I apply this every night, after the shower, before I go to bed, to make sure I get the darkest tan I can. You can pick this product up online and in a lot of the cheaper drug stores. I get mine from the local drug store called Savers for around £2.99 for a 200ml bottle (7.04 fl.oz)
The product applies like an instant tan so you know exactly where you have applied which makes the application even easier!!
To get the best out of this product make sure you have showered, exfoliated and moisturised, making sure you pay extra attention to your ankles, knees, elbows and the under arm area. Then apply three pumps to a tanning mit (which you can also pick up in Savers for about £0.99) then apply in upward and circular stokes making sure you have applied the product evenly. It always helps to get an extra person to help you with your back, I find mum or boyfriend are normally the best candidates :)
Then allow to dry which is pretty much no time at all, which is another plus point! :)
I always apply this product before I go to bed, so that it develops while I sleep, then I can shower off in the morning and then be left like I've just got back from a holiday abroad! But if you prefer to apply it in the morning, you won't need to wait much longer then 2mins to get dressed.
I would definitely recommend this product and I can not see me switching to another any time soon!!! :)
So overall I would rate this product a 9/10 not a 10 mainly because of the problem some of you may have trying to locate it, I am lucky because there is a Savers on my local high street, but some of you might not be so lucky and may have to order on line, which can put the price up slightly. Two other places you can purchase it are;
- amazon.com for £4.99
- fragrancedirect.co.uk for £2.99
