It’s rare that I fall in love with a product, there’ll be products I like sure, there’ll even be products I REALLY like but do I ever get ‘obsessed’ with a product the way every beauty blogger seems to? Nah not really.
That’s why I’ve had to do this blog about Skinny Tan, because I really am obsessed with it. I first tried it in time for the races and I had a very scary Ladies Day Eve. I used the gel and the guide tan goes on extremely streaky. No matter what I tried to do to even it out, it just seemed to become more streaky – and I’m a veteran tanner. I frantically googled reviews of Skinny Tan (because I couldn’t be arsed looking like I was a teenager from Coventry let loose on the Sun Shimmer for the first time) and found that it was normal for the guide tan to streak and it should wash off evenly. I prayed and went to sleep.
The tan did wash off evenly the next day and best of all it was a lovely natural colour. I didn’t look ‘orange’ so at least there was no chance of the Daily Racist papping me on that account. It was just a nice, sunkissed colour.
Then as an added Brucey bonus, when it fades it doesn’t come off in patches – like at all. It just gradually fades all over, like a normal actual tan.
I’m dead lazy when it comes to doing my tan and to be honest the flakiness when it’s fading really gets on my wick so I never bother doing my tan unless it’s for a night out or special occasion – and even then, not if I can get away without it. Since the races I’ve tanned nearly every week – it gives such a nice result for relatively little fuss (you still have to prise your fella’s hands off the PS4 remote to do you back) that it’s actually worth it.
As for the ‘skinny’ bit – Skinny Tan apparently contains all sort of fancy anti-cellulite doo-dahs – I don’t know if it’s helped me out with than or not because, praise the good genes of my parents, even at my chunkiest, I don’t really suffer with the dreaded cottage cheese thighs. One thing I can say though is that everyone looks and feels better with a tan – let’s face it.
Skinny Tan is exclusive to Superdrug – shop the range here. I used the 7 day tanner and the after glow gloss.
