Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner


Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner
The sun has started shining and Summer is just around the corner, I can almost see the short shorts and smell the BBQ's! There's nothing worse than a beautiful Summer's day and not being able to get into your cute little Summer dress because of your white pasty legs. My white pasty legs are my biggest problem every year! I never get them out because they're just so blinding white, they never get to see the sun so of course they just stay blinding white - it's a vicious circle! A couple of weeks ago I got invited to a beauty launch with Skinny Tan but wasn't able to make it, luckily Skinny Tan were generous enough to send me a few of their goodies to try, so I didn't miss out. Of course I jumped at the chance to solve my white pasty leg problem! I'm not a massive fake tan pro, so I started with the Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner.

First of all how cute is this packaging! It's simple and stylish all at the same time. The idea with this gradual tanner is to apply like a body cream daily, to build up your healthy looking tan. I love the idea of not being dramatically tanned in one go, gradually building it up seems easier, more subtle and realistic and also leaves less room for mistakes. I first applied this just with my hands and immediately loved the coconut scent. The cream is very thick and moisturising thanks to the skin smoothing and hydrating oils. You can apply this just like you would any other body moisturiser, but this has your healthy glow right inside! My legs felt so moisturised and healthy after applying the cream and it didn't take long at all to sink it. Usually with fake tan (even the gradual tanners) I feel like I have to stand still for hours until it drys. After about 15 minutes or so I felt comfortable enough to get on with my day and put some shorts on. Another added bonus to this gradual tanner is the firming Guarana that helps tackle the appearance of cellulite - it's basically supermodel legs in a bottle!

Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner Before And After
                  Before  = Half dead legs                                                                                                                          After = Healthy natural tanned legs
I could see the results of the first application within a few hours and could already tell I looked a lot  healthier and also more moisturised. Stupidly I washed my hands after and splashed my leg which left a subtle line. Luckily as it's a gradual tanner I could patch this up next time I used it. The next day I used a tanning mit to apply the cream, which I found to be much easier, quicker and also left me with a flawless finish! I've only used the Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner for three days and I'm so impressed with the results. My legs are Summer ready and flawless. I can't help but keep staring at my tan thinking really, I have tanned legs? They look so healthy and glowy, I'm just not used to it! I can't believe how easy it is to get a flawless finish, I expected to have big streaks and white patches because I'm just not a tanning pro - but to my delight I'm healthy and sun kissed all over. I've also noticed my legs now look a lot slimmer and more toned thanks to the Guarana - hallelujah! I'm not the only one who has been so impressed with this gradual tanner, even Simon is eyeing up the bottle and wants to get himself a glowing healthy tan!
