Due to my Casper like complexion I do like to mix things up during the warmer weather (albeit the only “slightly warmer than winter” weather). I’m a little bit hesitant to try new fake tans; I truly am a creature of habit when it comes to tan so It was with trepidation that I obliged the kind folks at Garnier who sent me this one to try!
On the business end of things this tan will set you back €21.19 for 150ml but supermarkets and Boots usually have decent offers from week to week, so you may well find it cheaper elsewhere. The tan promises no streaks with simple, easy application. The big selling point on this one is that it boasts a “No Fake Tan Smell” which is a very huge statement to make.
I exfoliated and prepped my skin the morning before use and I applied the mousse using a mitt applicator I picked up in Penneys. How did I fare?
- The tan comes in a handy plastic pump dispenser, much easier to use than glass bottles or squirty tubes.
- Application was a cinch; shake the bottle, dispense mousse and apply haphazardly
- Colour payoff was nice; a light golden shimmery tan with no streaks and one application was enough. Result!
- Widely available
- Washes off easily
- Sadly it didn’t live up to the no fake tan smell. It doesn’t smell awful but it does have that soggy biscuit pong.
- It took a long time to sink in after application. I had to fan myself dry!
- It fades patchily
All in all I am torn on this one. I liked the colour and the ease of use but I disliked the smell and the patchy fading.
Have you tried this tan? What did you make of it?
