It's been a year since our inaugural fake tan review ( you can read it here http://twocogsinawheel.weebly.com/fashion/best-fake-tans). In that time we've had many home tanning mishaps, tried some good tans and tried some bad ones. So, read on to hear about our Year in (tan) Review!
We love love love the whole pure tan range! The one hour dark tan is definitely the best we tried this year (as a little sample in our order of swimmers of Bondi Venus!). It is super dark and gives you so much confidence knowing your tan looks totally natural. There is no overpowering or tell tale tan smell and there is a subtle shimmer meaning you will really be glowing! There's also a gradual tan with SPF which is perfect for daily use in summer and a matching face tan as well! Even better to know it is not tested on animals :)
Bondi Sands is everyone's go to for good reason - it does the job. But a Bondi Sands tan never looks natural. It smells great- but it smells like fake tan which isn't what you want when you are going for a natural look. If you're not going for a natural look and just want to look daaark then you'll probably keep going back to it time and time again!
Picked up a Model Co tanning show bag at the Melbourne Show earlier this year and we were impressed with the results! Even though it did have a very overpowering fake tan smell, we've never had so many compliments about our tan! That being said, it doesn't look totally natural but it is a really reliable one to use!
Le Tan has been our longest relationship with a tan! It is super reliable and we always keep a bottle in the back of our cupboard just in case! You will probably need two coats to get the colour you want, but at least you know it is reliable and does the job!
Whats your favourite brand of tan? Any essential tips we need to know for application?
