For you who know me personally…
You know I make Casper the Ghost seem tan. Like for the reals, I’m so stark naturally white, I’m embarrassed for myself sometimes ….
Therefore, I have been on the hunt for the perfect sunless self tanner as of late. A little history, I’ve been spray tanning queen since I was in my earrrrrly 20’s. Man, the Mystic Tan used to get me so dark… I’m not sure if they have changed their formula since then, but it just doesn’t work for me anyway.
Plus, lets be for the real honest.... I am super lazy and want to stay inside as much as possible and not have to leave my house if I can do something at home, like sunless tans, my nails, yoga.... working out, I NEVER want to leave...haha! ... can I get an amen?
So anyhoo, I had heard great reviews from a gal I follow on YouTube who seems pretty legit (Hot N Flashy if you’re super interested in stalking her, haha!) and she gives pretty honest beauty reviews, so when I saw her review on Tanceuticals, I knew I must have it for myself to try.
So lets’ just fast forward and get right to the point, shall we? I know from experience, that I like the mousse self tanners, as they seem to provide the least amount of streaking and even exposure possible. So I ordered the mousse in dark, because Miss Hot N Flashy tried that color and said it was a great color.
I applied this an night after thorough exfoliation, this is key when self tanning kids!)… and went to town, threw on some loose dark clothes, and started counting sheep.
The next morning, I was a beautiful glow non orangey nor streaky shade of tan. Like LEGIT a nice color. I loved the color, and decided I wanted to go for round two the next night, and was pleasantly surprised. I looked like I could actually show my face up at the beach without scaring small children. Again, no streaks. ; )
The faux glow lasted I’d say a good 4-5 days before it started fading, and faded nice and evenly, not in sheets like I was a snake shedding my skin (which I’ve definitely seen that before on some unfortunate beauties!)… I’ve been using this weekly for a month now with no problems… Its Siren Certified. I’ll put my stamp of approval.
