Hands up who loves bronze skin all year round! I know I do. I actually don’t really tan naturally, I have very pale, Irish skin but very rarely go for the pale and interesting look.
I am quite picky when it comes to tans, and really like to road test them for a few weeks before I share my thoughts on here, to ensure I know how the tan develops, wears and fades. I was kindly gifted the Sun Kiss tanning mouse back in September and have been wearing it ever since.
The first thing I have to say about this tan is actually about the mitt. This double-sided velvet mitt is AMAZING! I think tanning mitts are quite important for the tanning application process, just like how makeup brushes can make a big difference on your face. This mitt is super soft and makes applying tan so easy. This mitt is €5.95 and in my opinion worth every single penny! Buy it here.
Now onto the actual tan. It is a mouse which I really like and has a nice bronze guide colour to give you a lovely instant tan. My right leg has tan applied and my left is pale and product free.
The guide colour makes it really easy to spot any white spots and the texture of the mouse, along with the velvet mitt, make it really easy to blend into the skin evenly. The tan requires about 5 hours to develop so I usually put it on at night and allow it to develop over night to get the most from the colour.
Below I am wearing bare legs with the Sun Kiss tan. It always looks really even and natural when I wear it. I don’t need to apply instant tan over to add more colour.
Unfortunately I didn’t have natural light when I took this photo, but this is what my legs looked like after the colour fully developed.
- There is a sweet scent to this tan but it is not over powering
- It fades quite naturally and lasts about 5 days.
- It dries really quickly, I can get dressed within 5 minutes of applying
I have been wearing the medium to dark colour and really like it. If I want to go ultra bronze I will apply two layers, but one layer gives me the perfect glow. My totally honest opinion is that I really like this tan. For my naturally pale skin it gives me the right amount of bronze that I really love.
This tan retails for €12.95, and from the one bottle I have used this is incredible value. A little goes a really long way and I know I still have a lot more tanning from this one bottle left. Shop this amazing tan here.
Until next time,
