We’re big fans of Fake Tan, we’re both super pale so love to wear fake tan as it makes us feel better. We always searching for the next great tan, the one that look natural, fades well and doesn’t smell of biscuit and for me now it has to be Cruelty Free.
I first heard of Skinny Tan this time last year as I treated myself to the original 7 day tan as it was on offer. The 7 day tan is amazing, it’s a thick liquid that is easy to blend, smells much better than normal tan and leaves me with a healthy glow so when we were asked if we wanted to try the Express Mousse 1 Hour Tan* of course we said yes, I couldn’t wait for L to try it out too.
Skinny Tan is also meant to help reduce the visible appearance of cellulite. I find with a tan my cellulite usually looks better. Skinny Tan also smells so much better than other tans, no biscuit smell and no lasting scent on the skin. It’s also streak free.
The tan comes in a pump bottle with a monochrome design. The express mousse offers a few levels of tan depending on how long you leave it on. After an hour you can wash it off for a light tan or leave it on for longer for a deeper colour. It has a colour so as you apply it you can see where it’s applied, it rubs into the skin easily and doesn’t streak. One of my favourite things about the skinny tan range is the fact it fades off well, no patchy skin.
The Skinny Tan Dual Sided Mitt needs more than a special mention, this is the best tanning mitt I’ve ever used! (I’ve got two brown one’s as well as the pink we were sent to try, personally I prefer the brown as it hides the fake tan on it and looks cleaner!) It’s made of velvet and is so soft on the skin, it also makes it easy to apply tan, it’s also coated on the inside so you don’t get tan on your hands!
These photos are taken 1 hour apart! I love the colour this tan develops into, this is such a good colour, it’s also great if you’re busy as you can put it on in the morning and leave it to develop as the colour it turns into looks good too. The photo below shows it washed off, I don’t think this does it full justice as it looks more golden and bronzed in real life.
The mousse retails for £29.99 and the mitt is £5.99 and both are available from Skinny Tan and Superdrug.
Have you tried Skinny Tan? This is a great tan if you’ve not used fake tan much as it’s not too strong a colour but enough to make people tell you look healthy!
As M mentioned, we’re huge fans of fake tan and she’s mentioned Skinny Tan to me many times but I was yet to try it.
I was amazed by how good it was and I will definitely not be going back to any other tan. I’ve always loved fake tan but applying it can be a chore, it requires lots of buffing in, can smell horrid, give you streaks and fade away leaving patches.
This one does none of those things!!!! Like actually none!!!
I don’t know if it’s just the mitt or the product or the two combined, but I found it really easy to use, the smell was so much better than other tans and it didn’t streak. The colour it came out as was super natural and I couldn’t stop looking at my own legs, and it faded without any patches whatsoever – this might be the best tan I’ve ever used!
As M also mentioned the mitt is outstanding – it’s wonderfully smooth and probably helps a massive amount to keep the tan looking good but it also feels great quality.
I don’t really think there’s anything else that needs to be said on the matter – if you are still unsure I don’t know how else to sway you, it’s excellent go and buy it!!
