Firstly, apologies for my thunder thighs being on show – hope you weren’t eating your tea!
Sadly, I don’t have any decent full body pics of me wearing the tan.
I’ve always said when it comes to tan, “go dark or go home“. I never bother with light shades as I feel I’d need to just use double (or some times triple) the amount to get the perfect deep tan. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I do feel that darker shades of tan are less time consuming and generally last longer because I find I don’t need to use as much. Logic Larry strikes again.
So when I tried Lauren’s Way Darker Than Dark Mousse* I knew I was onto a winner. LW is owned by one of the original TOWIE babes, Lauren Goodger and not only does the line have fake tan but lashes, extensions and sleep-in rollers. So, one application took me from Casper to Victoria’s Secret Model in about 3 hours, although I tend to leave my tan to develop overnight. I’d say it’s a bit of a habit I’ve developed, not particularly necessary though. Sadly, the VS model body didn’t come with but we can’t have everything in a bottle.
Something I think a lot of tans miss the boat on is the scent – thankfully LW has a fresh, almost fruity/florally aroma that beats biscuits any day. The tan applies beautifully, blending well and giving a streak-free finish in no time at all – it’s non-sticky and dries pretty much instantly. I’m left with a gorgeously dark, olive toned tan that lasts a good 5-6 days. Something I particularly like is how evenly it fades – I don’t end up with white diamond shaped areas on my arms which I very much appreciate. No alien like limbs for me.
I am truly impressed with this tan and it’s easy to see why everyone is raving about it!
Love, Katie xo
