Oh my girlfriends think I am crazy Fashionistas: I am really quite dark already (courtesy of mixed blood!) and I am testing out a self tan.
I had a professional spray tan done last month and I really loved the results. I don’t necessary want to be much darker BUT it evened out my skin colour! I have darker hyper pigmentation spots on my face, but on my body, they are white spots. Sheesh, I really lucked out there, didn’t I!
I received the NEW Australis Rapid Mousse Chocolate Base* ^ in an early Christmas Stocking box from the Beauty Directory, with loads of goodies, lucky me!
This morning I tried out the Rapid Self Tan. It is called RAPID because it fast drying . In fact, I applied it with a mitten and an hour later I washed it off in the shower before I got ready to go to work, ready to show off my chocolate brown limbs!
It is fully customisable. Want it darker? Wait for 2 hours and then rinse it off. Want it darker still? wait for 3 hours and then rinse it off.
The tan will still develop for another few hours during the day, and I did not notice any smell.
This is actually the Chocolate coloured base for fair girls, but it suits me fine. There is one that is a purpe base for darker girls.
Here are some features.
- Streak Free
- Fast drying
- I can see there are at least maybe 8-10 applications in each can, a little goes a long way
- Not orange at all, the colour is very natural
- vegan and cruelty free!
So there is also a gradual tanner for the face: Let’s go Steady Lotion Face, but I am a little hesitant in using it on my face. Will my dark spots go darker??? Might give that one a miss… You can find Australis Tanning products in your local Chemist or online at Australis.com.au
Now I am a self tan addict, you will seem me review a few more self tanning products. Stay tuned.
