As part of a Christmas collaboration with the Scottish Blogger Network I will be posting some reviews over the next week or so on a variety of products.
First up, Sunkissed Instant Self Tanning Mousse in the shade medium bronze :)
I love fake tan, but i'm pretty lazy when it comes to applying it. I am
always on the lookout for the perfect colour, easy application..without the boyfriend repelling scent and something that won't stain the sheets!
In the colder months when i'm all wrapped up, tan isn't on the forefront of my priorities but I do love to have a glow without looking overdone for those Christmas nights out.
The first thing to mention about Sunkissed Instant Self Tanning Mousse.. is the scent!
No, it doesn't smell like cheesy biscuits! Huzzah! It has (by far) the nicest scent i've come across with tanning.
It has a whiff of coconut.. but leaves this lovely sweet scent on the skin that really lingers.
If you don't like sweet scents, this may not be for you but it is definitely right up my alley!
As a mousse, it comes with your standard pump. I found I used 1 pump for each section of my arm and this was the perfect amount. I used more to cover body and legs, but felt the amount dispensed with each pump was far more sufficient than I have found with other tans in the past.
As a peely wally (pale) person as you can see below I apply two layers of tan, as I find that is a noticeable change on my skin.
On application, you can see the colour so any streaks or missed areas are shown before it's too late! This also dries in really quickly, I don't feel I am fanning myself to speed the process up and it also develops quickly so it's a great option if it's a last minute rush.
With a good moisturising routine this does last 2/3 days on me, but does fade so would need reapplication at this point to maintain the colour. To me this is average and to be expected so I have no complaints.
I also received the Sunkissed Tanning Mitt - These can be very hit or miss. I usually wear a glove underneath mitts but I have thrown caution to the wind and used this as is. For once, the risky move paid off! Not a spot of colour has leaked through, or left that horrible orange tinge on the sides of my hands.
I don't want to say I am surprised at how much I have enjoyed using this tan, but this has definitely exceeded my expectations! I would definitely repurchase this, I would go as far to say it is miles ahead of the popular lower cost tan St Moritz.
These can be purchased from sunkissedbronzing.co.uk from £4.99
and some products are available on Fragrance Direct from £2.99
Has anyone else tried this?
