While the cold Dunedin weather is beginning to chill my bones I have been on the search for the perfect fake tan, and I believe I may of found it.
When looking for a fake tan I usually don’t have any preferences, I just tend to use whatever I can find in the chemist/farmers etc. This time I strayed from my usual and decided to try out a tan that had been bombarding my Instagram feed, Loving Tan.
Just having a quick view of Loving Tan's Instagram made my confidence go from around a 10 to a very low zero. Their feed was adorned with yummy bums, washboard abs and mermaid hair! If these babes were using Loving Tan and looked THAT good, maybe I should be using it too?!
SO. I bit the bullet, and made the purchase.
Loving Tan currently have Bronzing Mousses in the colours, medium, dark and ultra dark. I opted for the 2-hour express tan in the colour ‘dark’, though there is the option of medium. On the LovingTan website they have a wee write up about their tan’s
It is a truly professional strength formula with professional spray tan results.
Its 3 in 1 - It contains an Instant Bronzer, Self Tanner and Moisturiser! The instant bronzer is so handy for when you are wanting an instant tan.
It is streak free as the instant colour ensures the clear active ingredients have been applied evenly over the body
It Contains high quality dual active self tanner ingredients providing a natural colour
It is naturally derived with no Parabens or alcohol
The day before I tanned I scrubbed up well in the shower using Frank body scrub (which I’m sure ALL of you have seen on your insta feeds too!) and shaved my legs, just so they looked even more amazing once they were brown! I didn’t tan my legs straight after using Frank because of the oils that it contains. I felt like they would form a barrier over my skin, stopping the tan from fully penetrating my skin.
The day of tan application I showered and then applied the tan using my tanning mitt (these are a MUST HAVE for any one who uses fake tan! Gone are the days of streaks and stuff ups! Your tan will forever love you. It will be a ‘Loving Tan’-ha! Punny).
My initial thoughts when applying the tan were ‘holy jebus, this is very very dark’, ‘mmm this smells good’, and ‘wow, this is still really dark’.
I applied around 1 and a bit pumps to my lower leg, and 2 pumps for my thighs and this almost seemed like too much product. You definitely only need to use a small amount of this stuff to get the perfect tan.
After I had rubbed my tan in, I started to notice some differences between Loving Tan and other tans I have used.
1. No sticky residue. Usually tans take AGES to dry and usually leave a feeling of stickiness. Loving tan dried, well, dry
.The colour was already dark, and did not look orange at all
3. The consistency of Loving Tan Mousse was actually a mousse. I have used a number of Fake Tan Mousses that ended up being slimy mousse, more than moussey mousse.
4. The mousse was nice and thin, which resulted in a super easy application
I let an entire day pass before my final evaluation and WOW I have nothing but kind words! With a price of around $38NZ dollars, + postage, this product does end up being a bit more expensive than our good old St Moriz tan, but I truly do believe that Loving Tan is worth the money. The only negatives I can think of for Loving Tan is the bottle size (it seems a bit smaller than other fake tans, though this may just be my eyes deceiving me) and postage. Postage took FOREVER! But in this case, the pros outweigh the cons, with Loving Tan receiving a final Bam score of 10/10
