Happy Easter!! Hope you all had a fab weekend. I really think this has been the quickest month yet I can’t believe we are already going into April. Before you know it…SUMMER! Best season of the year and it can’t come quick enough!! Holidays, sun, sea, sand, cocktails and a good bronzed golden TAN. Until then I’m afraid well have to fake it with a little help from the bottle.
A lot of you have asked me how the new Fake Bake coconut tanning serum is, so thought I would write up a quick review and let you know how I got on.
I have used Fake Bake products for as long as I can remember so I always get excited when they release a new product. In fact I recently purchased the new lip inflate from Fake Bake which I love. I have used several lip inflate glosses before but some felt like they were burning my lips off. This one costs £15 and just gives your lips a nice little natural looking pout with minimum tingle sensation in my opinion.
Before tanning, I exfoliated in the shower with a fake bake passion fruit body polish that I actually got in TK MAXX but you can get it on the fake bake website for £10.
The bottle says medium which normally as I am quite sallow skinned, I tend buy to the darkest shade, but this colour was perfect and I left it on for 8 hours for the maximum tanning result. Usually you can leave on for 4-6 hours. I always do my tan before bed but I felt with this one you can do it and leave the house with it on as it wasn’t sticky like many other tans and it has a lovely smell.
I then applied the fake tan using a mitt- the tan comes with gloves but I buy my mitts out of Superdrug or Primark- I feel it gives you a more even tan.
I love tans that go on with colour as sometimes the spray on tans or clear lotions scare me a little as I forget what spots Ive already done. As you can see the leg on the left is slightly darker so I knew I hadn’t missed a spot.
I highly recommend it, I felt it gave me an all round natural looking colour and was “fake tan smell free” which is a huge bonus!
For all the nitty gritty info and to purchase it you can buy here for £29.95 on the Fakebake website.
