Happy Monday my Make-Up addicts! I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. It is summer time and that means lots of time in the sun. Are you tanners? I am not a tanner. I am also not a self-tanner. I am very fair complected and I have just accepted my fate. I told you guys back in my post for my June BoxyCharm that I would try this self-tanner for all of you. Well folks, I have to keep it real.
So instead of trying something I really didn’t want to try. I got the help of a willing tester that actually likes and uses self-tanning products my Mom!
Isn’t she just lovely? So I took her the product and asked her to try it. She rated smell, ease of application, longevity and of course price. Here is what she had to say.
The product was easy to apply, she saw immediate results so it easy to tell where it had been applied. The scent was pleasant at application. She put it on a few hours before bed to see if it would react with her sheets. I have been told this is a thing. So when she woke the next morning, the scent had changed in the evening to the typical scent of sunless tanning products but it was not overpowering. The tan remained pretty even. See the pic below. (The leg on the left is untreated and the leg on the right is the treated leg immediately after application.)
24 hours later she showered and advised that even with some extra scrubbing her suds remained white and the product was not coming off. She said that her sheets maintained the self-tanning odor but there were no stains.
A week later, I followed up with her and she said that the product had a good staying power. She said she probably would have applied another layer of the product to her thighs because her lower legs got some sun but the thighs didn’t so they are a little uneven now that a week has passed. She used only about 1/3 of the bottle to do this test and that the bottle would be about 2 full body applications. The cost of $24.50 MSRP is a little pricey for self-tanner, she considers her max about $15.00.
Overall a great experience, and a 3.5 to 💄💄💄💄out of 5 rating. I hope you have enjoyed a real girl review from the real girl mom! Thanks for your help Mom! You rock!
Love and 💄
