Skinny Tan & Tone Oil

By Evette Garside @evette77

"Skinny Tan is the first self-tanner that combines a natural tanning active with naturally derived skin smoothing actives to tan, contour and reduce the visible appearance of cellulite!"
Skinny tan differs from many other tanning products that I have tried (and believe me I have tried loads). It differs as it's made with naturally derived tanning ingredients and therefore does not smell like fake tan and nor does it streak. I found the no streak claim a little hard to believe at firsr; I mean what tanning product will claim otherwise?

I use products such as skinny tan because I have very fair natural skin and so unless the weather is extremely hot (which it rarely is over here) then I just won't tan. As my sister had treatment for skin cancer earlier this year, I won't use sunbeds either. Therefore I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a self tan addict. I have a drawer full of the stuff, all different brands and types.

I spotted Skinny tan on an advert and was pretty eager to test out their new product - the skinny tan tone and oil to see if the product lived up to its claims.

The bottle itself is fairly plain, no gimmicks or half naked women or bold claims on how good the product is. It's a spray on type oil tan. I am more used to using gels and mousse but found this pretty much mess free.

Starting on my legs and working upwards I spray a fair few sprays all over and then use a tan mitt (not included) to blend it all in. I think the only time you don't need to blend in a spray type tan is when you go to a salon so make sure you have a tan mitt or gloves if using this product. It does have a scent but it's not fake tan smell, a little like coconut and something else. Bring oil, I was quite surprised at hot fast it dried (almost instantly) and it blended in really well too. The results are instant, with deeper results within an hour or so.

The finished tan look is certainly impressive looking very natural and not at all orange or fake. The shade being just right for my skin too, not dark but no longer pale skin either. And as for streaking!! There is none, none at all, it's a perfectly even tan and I am really happy with it.

The bottle is 100ml which will be enough for approximately 4/6 applications. The tan can last up to 7 days and fades like a normal tan.
