solait bronzing foam

| solait bronzing foam tan in dark £4.99- superdrug |


so when i ask on my facebook a couple of weeks ago what people would like to see this was one that came up. seeing as i am a going through a bit of a fake take obsession and i have loads hanging about i figured  should really get around to writing about them!

since i bought this superdrug have actually had a bit of a move around, slightly changing the name from 'tinted bronzing foam' to simply 'bronzing foam' and now only offers light or dark as shade options. neither of these changes really bother me if i'm honest but i do wish there was an intermediate shade for the winter months.

now the first thing you will notice about this tan is the smell.... yes it has the dreaded biscuit smell. i say dreaded, it isn't actualy something that bothers me at all but i know it can be a massive deciding factor for many peope

i know some people like to go for a more subtle fake tan but with all of my friends seemingly jet setting 24/7 every school holiday i like to try and keep up! and by that i mean i want to look like i've been in the sun for at least two weeks! the guide colour can come up a little orange so i would recommend washing that off so you don't look like you've been tangoed before you go out for your night on the town! with that in mind i would definitely say the final colour is on the darker side of natural. but it is not fake looking, you just look like you've enjoyed some sun! i would say it's more of a summer tan than a winter one.

the product applies well but be warned because the colour is so dark any mistakes are highly visible! this tan allows mistakes in application to be buffed away relatively easily but once dry that becomes increasingly more difficult until you wash off the guide colour, then most mistakes are barely visible.

dry time isn't as short as my lauren's way tan so this definitely isn't one to use in a hurry. you're left feeling a little sticky for a good 10-15 minutes but after than you're good to go!

the price makes this tan a winner for me! (of course the fact it actual works also helps!) i think i'll have to pick up the lighter version when i finally get a little more money in my bank again.

guess which one has the tan on? ;)


have you got any fake tan recommendations? what sort of shade do you prefer?

  4. I have had this tan lying around for a while now but have never used it, I might give it a go I was always scared it might be too orange but it looks lovely -I'm so pale at the moment!

  5. That tan looks natural and lovely. I've been graced with a natural tan, so i don't think about things like that, but i would never be able to tell that wasn't a real tan!
