As many of you may know I tend to worship the sun and love a good tan. I’m one of those ‘I wish I was born Spanish’ type gals and get that warm fuzzy feeling when someone mistakenly greets me with an ‘Ola’ on holidays! Don’t get me wrong I love every other part of my Irish dna, but tanned skin is honestly my wish every time I blow an eyelash away, break a wishbone or see two black birds in a row. All jokes aside I am coming to the conclusion as I progress in years, that I had better not wait for magic to take effect and go out and get that Beyonce glow myself.
A lot of you have been asking me what products I use in particular the ones I use on my excursions to sunnier places and so I thought I’d share it in a blog post. I could do ten posts but I’ll give one a go to start with! My most recent secret to bronzed looking skin has been the wonderful Tantastic Self Tan. I am always trying new tans, a tan connoisseur or tanning ninja some might say and this Tantastic range has definitely caught my attention for all the right reasons. I live by the ‘Tan is for life not just for Christmas’ type motto, (ok slightly altered motto!). Tantastic not only stood the test for a long hall holiday but also as a quick fix before a night out, unexpected Irish heatwave and emergency top ups when your best friend has butter fingers and spills a drink over you as soon as you arrive at a party.
The Tantastic Self Tan range caters to all tan lovers as they have a variety of products. I personally found myself using the ‘Liquid Dark’ for longer trips as it develops over night and lasts up to 7 days. It also fares well in water so super handy for your summer holiday. The best way to maintain this tanned look for those 7 days is to use a gradual tan and thankfully Tantastic have one as part of their range. By applying this every night it maintains the longer lasting tan while also adding a little, making up for any tan lost during those dips in the pool. When I’m at home I get my bronzed look from using their ‘Fast Drying Tanning Lotion’. This serves as your go to tan for last minute top ups. The finish is so natural and smooth looking, I love it. I used it most recently at two Irish Festivals, Forbidden Fruit and Body & Soul and it came out so nicely. There are 5 different types of Tantastic Self-Tan and you can pick them all up in Boots, or for all you online shoppers you can purchase them directly from www.tantastic.co.uk.
So there you have it, whether you like to be sun kissed or bronzed to the max, Tantastic have got you covered
Enjoy the bronzed times ahead!
