Skinny Tan's NEW Salon Effects Spray*


I've said it once, I'll say it a million times. Life's infinitely better with a tan. I go from about a -12/10 to a solid 1/10 after I've invested a bitta time bronzing from a bottle [fat chance of a tan occurring naturally in these 'Beast from the East' climates, like] of an evening. 

Unfortunately, due to about 1500 operations, spending numerous weeks in hospital and various recovery probz [plus the fact I haven't left the house in legit about a year... so what is the point of making effort when no humans see me & Clive is most likely colourblind pls?] I hadn't bothered tanning for a long time. But the other week I simply had enough of wincing at my pasty, -12/10 reflection in the mirror and picked up this bottle of Skinny Tan's new Salon Effects Spray* [in Dark obv... cos go hard with ya tan or go home, like] I was sent ages ago; to have a play with.  

I'm super glad [although not surprised] to announce that this innovative spray on tan is frigging fantastic, probably the best Skinny Tan product I've used and was THE IDEAL choice to help me transition back into dat tanning life.

I've had several, streaky and utterly hilarious fails with spray-on fake tans before; I admittedly prefer to opt for mousses... so I did have my concerns when using this product initially. What I like about it though, is that it sprays out with a guide colour; so you can see exactly where you've missed and ensure that you've buffed every last spritz in to perfection. 

Unlike the horrific experiences of fake tan sprays past, this new development from Skinny Tan doesn't smell like a thousand biscuits combined either - it instead has a sweet, coconut aroma to it; which is lovely. A bit like all the products in their range do. I sprayed this product on and used my fav Skinny Tan Tanning Mitt* to ensure the product was buffed into my skin & evenly distributed across my body. My fav thing about this mitt is how hardwearing it is - and how it has plastic lining on both sides of its inner, to prevent tan seeping through and staining ya fingers. Which again, has been a massive downfall for me in the past.

I left my tan on overnight, before washing it off a little later on the next day [Paul the Postman must have thought I'd gone on holiday to the sun the morning after, when I answered the door all sheepish in me dressing gown; tanned to buggery in less than 24 hours, hahahaha.]

I could not have been any happier with the results if I tried. This product is legit the best tan I've tried in a long, long time. Once washed off, the glow it left me with was so, so natural looking - and so even! Problem areas such as feet, elbows and hands were error free and it added a healthy warmth to my death-warmed-up complexion. It didn't cling to dry skin, it didn't streak, it didn't smell. It was just the best feeling, after months of hibernating like a big Naked Mole Rat in my duvet [pls note: do not Google images of this creature in front of children, the elderly or those fearful of pennises.]

I'm all about that thorough testing life, so I monitored my tan over the following week to see how it wore out. Again, really, really well. It faded so, so naturally - like a sun tan would [lol remind me wot that's like pls and also wot is the sun?] with no patchiness or weird bits. 

With other fake tan products, as the week goes by, you start to see obvious problem zones and mad orange patches where the product seems to gather - but again, none of that with this product. I got the tiniest orangey looking patch on the inside of my right foot [feet being one of the problem zones in tanning] but I grabbed my fav Skinny Tan Exfoliating Mitt [seriously, I use this mitt so much] and gently worked on it and bam; it was gone, never to return. And there were no more patches ever again after that. Wow.

With all that being said, it's time to unveil the results. The following shots have been taken before tanning, straight after tanning [with the stain / colour guide still present], during the wash off process [I was ded excited, alright?!] and after washing off the guide colour; so you can see exactly what I was working with and exactly how the colour turned out on me. #NoFilter.

I think those results speak for themselves, tbh! Look how even, natural and glowy that tan is! Other humans might genuinely not even realise I've not been outside in months, judging by how healthy & bronzed my complexion looks now! Fake it till ya make it, queens [#PRrequest a trip to the Maldives, pls] - and this new release from Skinny Tan is the perfect beauty tool to do just that.

If you're a fan of fake tan and / or of Skinny Tan as a brand [their products are ALL totes cruelty free / vegan, which is a massive tick in my box... ooh eerrr] you need to try this new launch of theirs! It's my fave product to date & I'd recommend it to anyone. Even Trump; cos bloody hell FIRE that little orange man needs some tanning advice pronto, amiright?!

Have you tried this yet? What's your fav Skinny Tan product?
