Fake Tan Fridays - The Skinny Tan Edit*

Christmas is almost upon us. Can you cope?! Cos I'm not sure that I can.

Our exposure to actual sunlight during the festive season is decreasing as the nights draw in earlier [boooo] and [if you're anything like me] our desires to eat all the food is about to rapidly increase [helloooooo, turkey!] I can safely say that for Christmas 2016, I'll be getting paler and fatter. But that's okay, as I've found a product from Skinny Tan which will disguise this annual tradition rather nicely.

If you haven't heard of them before, Skinny Tan produce the first self-tanner to combine a natural tanning active with naturally derived skin smoothing actives; which tan, contour and reduce the visible appearance of cellulite! The results are instant and last for up to 7 days, and the products themselves are each made from naturally derived tanning actives - so no nasties. They also appeared on Dragon's Den - which is amazinggggg!

Skinny Tan very kindly sent me their new Skinny Tan and Tone Oil* [rrp £24.99] to try out. 

Life's so much better with a tan, amiright? I've taken it upon myself this year to try out a few different brands, to pick out the very best of the best [keep your eyes peeled for the concluding post!] And guys, this stuff is RIGHT up there. It's brilliant! 'Skinny Tan and Tone Oil is the natural, hydrating, quick and easy way to a streak free tan that looks so natural no-one will ever know you are faking it.  No orange, no streaking and NO skin-drying chemicals.

Apply after the shower with a quick spritz and the soft as silk non-sticky deliciously scented oil formula will add an instant glow.   Leave to develop into a golden, dewy medium tan that lasts for weeks.  And because it doesn't dry your skin Skinny Tan Oil can be layered on to darken your tan or maintain your colour.  Its easy and fool-proof because its literally IMPOSSIBLE to streak.

This super concentrated formula comes in a compact 100 ml size large enough to do 4-6 full body applications but small enough to pop into your handbag or luggage. Perfect to Spritz, Glow and Go! Skinny Tan Oil is paraben-free, cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!' And of course, perfect for Christmas!

As you may have been able to tell from the excitement that popped out in the paragraphs above, I LOVE this stuff. Like legit, it's incredible. I've never tried a tanning oil before - I've only ever experienced mousse, foam, wipe, in shower and spray tans [yeah, my obsession runs pretty deep...] but it's so, so easy to apply and makes your skin feel unreal

I love the fact that it applies with a stain, so you're instantly left looking bronzed - plus this feature makes application so SO much easier - it's impossible to miss a spot. The colour develops naturally, streak free and isn't at all drying - you know how sometimes, fake tan can pure cling to dry patches of skin? Not this bad boy. True to its name, it defo made my thigh dimples a lot less noticeable, too #IsThereAnythingItCantDo?

And the best bit? IT DOESN'T STINK. It smells like coconuts, cake and summer - a smell you don't actually mind inhaling; as opposed to the old school biscuit aroma which used to follow me around. I've been won over by Skinny Tan and I can't wait to try out more of their range. Totes going on my Christmas List.

I can't recommend this stuff enough. If you want to grab a slice of the action [which you totes should] you can buy Skinny Tan via their website [they've always got tons of offers on! Especially today, with it being Black Friday!] or at Superdrug, too. Granted, it's slightly more than I'd normally fork out for a fake tan - but it's 100% worth it. 

Have you tried any of Skinny Tan's products before? What's your favourite fake tanning product?
