White Buns Only Look Good On Hamburgers.

A new review from what has become my ritual ‘self-tanning Sunday’. This week I tried a product which was entirely new to me and I was pleasantly surprised. Usually, I dislike ‘liquid tan’, preferring a nice mousse formula like Cocoa Brown’s but after receiving He-Shi’s ‘Express Liquid Tan’ as a gift from my generous auntie, I said I’d give it a go.

This tan comes in a 300ml bottle at a very high-end price. I shopped around for you all and as usual, my trusty Cara Pharmacy has provided the cheapest price at €40. Available here:

So, the tan itself is a liquid formula which promises to bronze in an odourless, streak free manner. My steps for application wee was follows:

1) Shave legs at least 4 hours before tanning and cover body in a light moisturiser (I used natural coconut oil).

2) Apply tan using a tanning mitt, in a circular motion to avoid streaking. Use a generous amount of tan to create a noticeable glow.

3) Mix three drops of the tan with a generous amount of a light facial moisturiser (I used three pumps of Benefit’s ‘Triple Performing Facial Emulsion’). Apply evenly to the face and neck.

4) Allow tan to develop (I left it overnight).

To be honest when I woke up this morning, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But, oh my god – it’s glorious! My new holy grail of tanning – expensive but very worthwhile. The tan is indeed odourless and streak-free. I look like I’ve just come home from a week in Spain and it has me smiling from ear to ear.

I intend to cover with a layer of illuminating moisturiser tonight – will post pictures on Twitter tomorrow. Let me know what you think.
