YOU READ RIGHT! Everyone loves a healthy beautiful bronze glow and it can be achieved without damaging the skin laying out under those harmful UVA/UVB's with self tanner, but can we just talk about the smell?!? UGHHHHHH...It's the thorn in the side of self tanning's existence.
As an esthetician I have pretty much tried every self tanner under the sun and while many give me the color I want, I end up smelling like a mix of old french fries and sweaty gym socks (YUCK). Not exactly the thing I'm going for during a night on the town.
The bottle claimed to have "odor remove technology", so naturally it caught my eye and I knew I needed to give it a test drive. It only set me back $20, which was not bad compared to some of the other brands I've tried at over $40, plus It also came with a small mitt (which I found difficult to use on larger areas of the body, so I tossed it and used my Tarte Mitt instead).
Flash forward to the next morning. It's a mousse, so it's light, airy and glides along the body fast and seamlessly. Bonus??? It's tinted so you can actually see where you're putting it - later streaks! Once my body was done, I was immediately able to dress without it leaving any color on my clothes, which is great because I am always rushing. As I mentioned, you can see the tan right away, but it also gradually darkens until you wash it off. I will say however, once it washed off it was definitely lighter than I wanted. So you can add another application until you reach your desired shade. I actually paired it with the NKD Skin Gradual Daily Moisturizer ($14.99), which kept my desired color going all week long! I would highly suggest using the two of them together for consistent, glowing skin... can we say love connection? But the best part of these product are the ingredients: They are ORGANIC, so you get the glow without that dreaded "self tanner smell" Halleluejah!
Do yourself a favor. Get this and get your tan on without that funky smell. You can thank me later bronze goddess!
