So this week’s beautiful weather has got us thinking about exposing our pasty white skin in the coming weeks and months (yes we are very optimistic about the Northern Ireland weather), and of course the mental impact this may have on the greater public!
I am a firm believer in using false tan, and have tried everything from cheap tanning cloths in my early teens, Boot No7 (goodness it smelt like biscuits and left the bed sheets a mess), to high end products such as St Tropez; we didn’t quite make it to their £200 diamond spray tan though.
This week I choose 3 local self tans to give them a go over the coming weeks:
BPerfect – 10 second tan, I purchased in a local beauty salon The Wee Beauty Room, Randalstown (£25 including the velvet tanning mitt)
According to BPerfect you get a gorgeous glow in seconds with this new instant tanning formula that works with your skin’s natural tones to create the perfect colour for you.
The 10 Second Tan is a liquid non-streak formula that is easy to apply (spray bottle), quick-drying, gradual fade up to 7 days. Lightly scented with soft notes of coconut.
HeShi – he-shi Express Liquid Tan 150ml & Tanning Mitt Gift Pack (£18.99) – Purchased from Medicare, Lisburn Road.
According to he-shi the express liquid tan is a self tanning bronzer which tans on contact giving an instant golden colour. It is quick drying due to its incredibly light, smooth and moisturising texture.
With its ‘see where it goes’ formula you can be confident of not developing streaks or patches. If desired the liquid can be reapplied for a deeper instant colour.
If desired, the liquid can be add to the skin to achieve a deeper instant colour which will last up to 7 – 10 days.
Lusso Tan – Self Tan Lotion For Face and Body (£19.95) & Flawless Tanning Mitt (£7) Purchased in the Secret Day SPA, Belfast
Lusso claims, Our luxuriously hydrating formula cares for your skin with organic ingredients and creates a gorgeous tan that will smoothly fade in up to 7 days.
