Hope you’ve had great weekends! Mine has been one of mixed emotions. L and I met up with a friend and went out to watch the rugby yesterday. With both of us being rugby fans and myself being English and L being Welsh we knew it was going to be an interesting match!! A very happy result for me with England beating Wales and us winning the triple crown. Now if France could beat Ireland next weekend so we can win I’d be happy! On the downside my brother was in a pretty bad accident when doing jumps on his bike the hills near us back home and has currently spent the last 3 days in and out of hospital dosed up on morphine! It times like these I hate that I’ve moved away from home!
Anyway on to happier stuff. With the lush weather we’ve been having this weekend I’ve been layering on the tan. I feel so much better with a tan. I feel like I look healthier (A lovely work colleague this week told me I looked like death on a day I’d decided not to wear make up to work!), thinner and just a bit better with a tan.
I was lucky enough to go to the Lauren’s way launch a few weeks back. After trying the Darker than Dark lotion first probably over 18 months ago I was excited to try the glam tan version as I had loved the first so much.
The event was amazing and I mentioned it a bit more here.
Glam tan is a formula that was available in the other shades but darker than dark is a new release. Glam tan is like a spray tan. It has a spray nozzle and the tan itself is a very thin liquid. I’m someone who normally prefers lotions to mouse so I was excited to try a liquid,
Even though I’m pale I do still like to use darker than dark as I find with light tans it takes ages to build the colour up and to be honest I’m a little lazy. There is always the worry that you’ll go orange but with this tan I didn’t! (with the exception of my hands but that’s my fault as after forgetting to tan them I thought it would be a great idea to do it after drinking a bottle of wine and was a bit too liberal with the tan! Thanks L for the photographic evidence of it!! She was gutted England were winning!)
Due to the fact Glam Tan is a liquid it can be used on the face and body. I find sometimes tan will either accentuate my pores of block them. With this on it doesn’t seem to be the case and my face matches by body without being spotty as a result.
To apply Glam Tan you spray it onto the mitt first, then rub in, in circular motions. As it’s a thin liquid it dries really quickly. I was also impressed that it didn’t rub off from wearing a bra leaving marks. It was also streak free.
Once Washed off (I do think the sun was a bit bright for this photo as I’d say it’s darker in real life!)
Although this photo was taken pre wash off I think it’s more true to the colour I am now!
It also fades really well without leaving patches. I am someone who uses a shower puff and I definitely think if you apply fake tan this is good as it helps keep the tan from fading off patchy.
I’m really loving glam tan. For me I prefer the formula to the lotion as it’s thinner it’s easier to apply and sinks in quicker. As for smell. It doesn’t have that biscuit scent at all which noone ever wants with fake tan. As it develops it does get a slight smell but once washed off it’s gone again.
I’m already converted. My plan is now I’ve started is to top up every three days so I stay tanned! I much prefer being brown.
Glam Tan is £19.95 for 250mls and can be bought from Lauren’s Way or Superdrug. If your local store doesn’t stock it you can have it sent to store and save on delivery costs!
Have you tried Lauren’s Way? Would darker than dark put you off if you were pale?
