A worthwhile investment this summer that will have you glowing on the inside and out!

While it was just about passable to get away with wearing thick black tights at the start of the summer, unfortunately July deems this to be one of summer’s biggest faux pas. In replacement in the hosiery section, shoppers can now feast their eyes on an array of skin coloured tights from bronze to olive shades.

No matter how hard I try to find a sheer pair of tight to suit my complexion; they always seem to look unnatural and fake – at times I even look like I have prosthetic legs.

While I am avid fan of lathering on Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs in Tan Glow before a night out, I don’t always have the time to moisturise my legs and get the exfoliator/tan mitt out (especially when rushing from work!) I decided to give Tantastic’s Self Tanning Mousse a go to acquire a long-lasting tan.

I applied just one application on Thursday night, and was surprised with the golden glow I woke up with the following morning. Unlike other tans, there is a very faint and barely there scent to this product. The mousse glides on effortlessly and makes it easier to get the application even and more natural looking.

Instead of using the hairdryer to help absorb the product all over my body, I found that the mousse dried in almost the second it was applied. The highlight of the product is its non-sticky light texture, which is a result of how the foam is dispersed through the canister.

When I woke up the next morning I was expecting to look like an Oompa Loompa, before I hit the shower to rinse away the excess tan. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there weren’t pools of brown dye clogging in my shower mat.

The moisturing ingredients left my legs feeling silky smooth while delivering a healthy glow. Three days later there is little signs of the tan fading.

At €27.00 a pop this product may be slightly more expensive than other tans on the market, but in turn the cost can be justified by the flawless finish and long-lasting glow which the mousse provides.
