I love fake tan! I love it so much that I would happily declare myself as a tanaholic, if there is such a thing. The saying ‘life is better with a tan’ couldn't be more true and its for this reason as to why I love it so much. I’m so obsessed that Im one of these girls who has her weekly tanning regime all perfectly planned and stick to it religiously (mines on a Friday for those of you wondering). In fact I think it was about time I share my tanning routine with you guys as I think I’ve perfected my tanning process now which I’m pretty proud of. Let me know if you want to see this?
A few years ago I had a mini series on my blog which I named ‘Bronze Me Beautiful’ and its where I went over my favourite tanning products with you guys. I don’t know why I stopped this but I’m now ready to talk about tanning again so that series is making a come back starting from today. Since my last tan tastic post, there have been so many new fake tanners that have been released and you can bet that I made it my mission to try and test them. I thought I’d kick start off this bronze me beautiful post with a few of my new favourites.
Last year I was introduced to the brand Make Believe and I don’t think its rated highly enough in the blogosphere. Make Believe specialise in tanning and over the year I’ve worked my way through a lot of their tanning products. The brand have quickly become a favourite of mine because I think their tans are perfect for those days where I want a really natural and beautiful looking tan. One product that I am obsessed with is the Make Believe Self Tan Mist with Bronzer. This tan has become one of my all time favourites as it really does give me a tan that doesn’t scream to everyone ‘I’ve just slapped a load of fake tan on’. Sometimes I’m all about the natural look and just want to look like I’ve had a healthy dose of vitamin D and this it the tan that is perfect for that subtle golden glow.
Not only does the Make Believe Self Tan Mist give me gorgeous results, its also really easy to use and comes in a spray bottle. The actual tan works into my skin really quickly and streak free. I also love how the results are pretty much instant and I could easily leave my house that day with a tan thats perfectly flawless. It can take a little while to dry though, so find application is better in the evening. One other great thing about the Make Believe tan is that it smells so good! It doesn’t have your typical fake tan smell, it smells exotic which I think is the perfect smell for any fake tan.
The next tan is one that rivals my favourite Palmers Gradual Tanner, actually I may even say that its better because the results are just really intense and I always get an amazing gorgeous glow when I use this. The Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze just glides on like any other moisturiser and all I have to do is let it work its magic overnight for a really lovely tan. One application isn’t dark enough for me, but I find that this is a product I’ll use to top up my tan during the week for a perfect pick me up. I love everything about this tan from the results, the smell and of course its girly pink packaging.
Last but by no means least is another favourite of mine and I strongly believe that every girl needs a bottle of this stashed away in her beauty cupboard. The Sally Hansen Air Brush legs is just incredible. I would describe this less of a tan and more of a makeup for my body as it really does give my skin the most flawless and perfect finish. My main reason for using it is for those instant tanning results, which are amazing, but the second is to give my skin that flawless air brushed look. I know its designed for your legs, but I’ve been using this all over and it works just as well everywhere else. This is one of those tanners that you need for any fancy occasion, especially one where you do have your legs out, I promise you it's a must.
So there we have it, some of my most recent favourite tanners. I’m thinking my next Bronze Me Beautiful post will be my tanning routine, let me know if your interested in this.
