I was pretty impressed by how easy it was to apply and how streak free the finished results were. I still consider myself as a tanning novice so if I can manage a streak-less than then anyone can!
I came to the fake tanning party quite late in life which is surprising given that I’m naturally very pale and I hate sitting in the sun. As you can imagine it was a total revelation! I think I always had those pre-conceived notions that I’d end up orange and streaky but the truth is, fake tans have moved on so much, they’re now almost foolproof (thank goodness!).
I’ve seen a couple of reviews which have been disappointed by Skinny Tan’s Pre Tan Primer which I find really surprising, as I absolutely love it. I use it religiously, regardless of whether I’m actually fake tanning or not. It’s my go-to exfoliator.
Secondly, this product HAS to be used in conjunction with the Exfoliating Mitt. Without this, you’re probably not going to prime your skin sufficiently for tanning, especially around your elbows, knees and ankles. The mitt is dual action; one side can be used to prime your skin and the other side, which is slightly more abrasive, can be used to remove fake tan.
The mitt and exfoliator together are a winning combination. They keep your skin soft and supple while simultaneously ensuring it’s sufficiently primed for tanning. Even if I’m not tanning I still reach for it every couple of days to keep my skin super soft!
Let’s be honest anything with the words “rose gold” in it is going to get my attention. Plus, I’d never seen a rose gold fake tan before, so I was excited to give this a whirl! The Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner promises to develop a natural looking, streak-free tan over 6 hours which lasts 7 days.
First off, I was pretty impressed by how easy it was to apply and how streak free the finished results were. I still consider myself as a tanning novice so if I can manage a streak-less than then anyone can!
I really love the colour this develops into. I tend to leave it overnight as this is recommended to achieve the best results. I can best describe it as being olive toned which I really liked. There isn’t a touch of orange insight and it looks really natural.
The After Glow Gloss is another example of how Skinny Tan has nailed those complementary products needed to create the perfect tan.
Skinny Tan’s advises The After Glow Gloss is best used at least 5 hours after you’ve tanned to prolong your tan, hydrate your skin and give you a glossy glow. The consistency is a mix between a gel and oil. It leaves your skin super soft and smells like being on holiday which I love. This is a perfect summer product.
I also use it pre-tanning on my elbows, knees, ankles, etc. to stop any patchiness or streaking. I’m a big fan of this dual use product.
