Is it just me or do you always want to fake tan after putting on new bed sheets? It seems to always be the way for me!
So even after changing the sheets, when I received a little package from Tanatomicals I was keen to try them out.
I've tried out Tanatomicals before, I used then for the first time last summer and if I'm honest I sort-of forgot about them. I blame the lack of sun! I noticed I was looking a bit pale and when I got to try out the brilliantly named (yet a bit of a mouthful!) 'Me Tarzan, you Jane, we cheaters instant spray tan in a can' and 'Because only bacon should be streaky natural look tanning cream'… I was happy to say the least.
I went for the instant spray first.
One of my favourite things about a tanning spray is how easy it is to apply. You just spray and go. Just make sure its applied evenly from about 15cm away to provide a light mist and you won't get any wet patches or build up.
It dries almost instantly so there's no standing about all cold and naked or walking about like a penguin while it dries!
I got my boyfriend in on the action to do my back for me. Even he was surprised how simple it was. You can see exactly where it goes on so it's nice and even.
Straight away you have a golden glow which continues to develop over 8 hours. I applied before bed and showered the next morning and was left with a lovely colour with no streaking or patchiness.
The smell has to be favourite thing about it, It's quite fruity almost like Tropical Batiste Dry Shampoo, definitely not like any tan I've smelt before!
For a budget fake tan this is brilliant, for ease of use alone the £7 is a complete steal!
I've got the tanning cream to try next which I'll be sure to blog about when I do...
Even Mason seems to like them!
