My "Fake" Tan

What tanning product do I use? I have blogged about it in a previous post, but never really mentioned the spray mist. The Garnier summer body moisturising spray mist has been a favourite of mine for the past couple of years. I have probably gone through over a 150 bottles of this stuff, my husband has also become a convert - I have saved him and myself from the disastrous effects of the sunbed.


Unlike many other tanning products, this product actually smells nice even on the next day. I hate that disgusting fake tan smell and would rather be pale than frankly stink. Trust me, I have tried them ALL, and this is amazing and I haven't come accross a dupe for it.

The spray is available in two shades, light sunkissed and deep sunkissed, I use the deep sunkissed as I have naturally olive skin and tan really easily. The colour it gives is definately NOT orange but more of a natural tan.

Also, another benefit of this is the fact that it's a spray. It distributes an even amount of product that doesn't need to be blended in. I usually apply this to my face and body at nightime - roughly 2 times a week, allowing about 5 minutes for the product to sink in before I get dressed.

Furthermore, it's not as expensive as other tanning products, which is a big bonus indeed.

Sounds like this could be a winner, I too HATE the smell of fake tan and would rather be pale and pasty but I might give this a try. Thanks for blogging about it! :) x

I think i might give it a try! the other products i use have a really funky smell after applied which demands applying it at night time but then after 3 days i have to change the sheets! thanks for blogging about this product!

I have used so many over the years and my favourites are Dove (the tanning moisturising one) on a daily basis/every other day and then if I'm going out or want a bit more I use Rimmel Sexy Legs. The Dove though, I can't recommend this enough!

bubblegarm said...

@girlwiththegoldentouch this is quite similar to doves formula. but this is a spray bottle, i love the spray idea :)

I used to have this and applied it after the gym. The problem was that the spray bottle worked only if I held it upright, which isn't always possible when you try to spray the back of your legs, for example.

I use the normal aerosol in this range a lot, I agree the colour it gives is lovely. Can't believe your husband tans :)

Please try Au Courant. I haven't found anything to come close to it although it is expensive at about 30.00 per bottle!

I would recommend that you try Au Courant. While it is pricey at about 30.00 per bottle, I haven't found anything to come close. It's so natural looking and no smell. I like the mouse.
