There's no denying it, I love my tan! I feel like Ive tried almost every tan on the market so when I was offered the chance to try out one I hadn't heard of I jumped at the chance.
Tantastic aim to make your skin your best asset, giving you a gorgeous tan while looking after your skin with their superior moisturising ingredients such as Vitamin B5, Aloe Vera and Glycerine. These will provide all over skin hydration allowing your tan to last longer. This all sounded great to me!
Firstly the packaging is lovely, it's like no other tan out there, it's such a vibrant barbie pink and it really works with the contrast of the brown writing. The mousse dispenses well too and the bottle is nice and sturdy without being too bulking which can often make you think you are paying more for the packaging than the product!
It has a light golden guide colour so you can see where you are applying it, although it dries very quickly you still have enough time to blend it in evenly to make sure there is no streaking. They advise that you don't apply a moisturiser before applying the tan, which is one less thing to do! I dispensed 2 pumps at a time to the mitt and smoothed it on in circular motions.
After it's dry there is a slight tint on the skin so you could easily go out in it. Most tans I look overly tanned so have to do it before I go to sleep so nobody gets to see me looking like I've stepped in mud! When coming to write this I thought I should mention the smell but I don't remember there being much of a smell at all, at least not anything I noticed! I guess it had a hint of just 'fake tan' which went away very quickly.
I applied it at 9pm and let it develop over night. I must admit I wasn't expecting much of a tan given the guide colour of the mousse but I was pleasantly surprised that with one coat I woke up with a lovely deep brown colour and even after washing it I still looked really tanned.
One thing I loved was that it didn't rub onto my bedsheets! Even with quick drying tans I often find that in the night some of it has still transferred on to the sheets, but this wasn't the case at all! Woo! No washing for me!
Tantastic products contain no alcohol so it won't dry out your skin, which is often the case with a tanning mousse and it also means it is safe to use on the face as well as the body.
Here's a little pic of the results-
