As you may have read in previous posts, I am an avid user of self tanning products. I have light skin which means I find it harder to tan. I hate having pasty white skin in the warm Summer months. I avoid sunbeds with all the health risks and opt for safe self tanners instead. I have used a fair few different ones over the years. Some good, some not so good. All of them claim to do the same thing and that is give you a “Glowing Streak Free Tan”.
Today is all about a tanning product which goes by the name of Lauren’s Way.
Lauren’s Way products can be found and purchased via their online store. As well as tanning products they also sell false lashes and hair accessories.
Their tanning products come in several different bottled varieties such as lotion, mousse, wash off and gradual (daily) tanner. There are 4 different shades to choose from starting with medium, dark, darker than dark and a 60 minute rapid tan solution.
I was offered a choice of tanning product try and opted for the medium tanning mousse.
The tanning mousse comes in a 150ml bottle and with a tanning mitt. It costs £15 which in my opinion puts it at the medium price range for products of this type. In other words not majorly expensive but not pocket money price either.
I find it best to apply tanning products after a bath/shower and after shaving legs. Unless otherwise stated on the bottle, it’s always best to exfoliate and moisturise and pay particular attention to moisturising knees and elbows prior to use.
The tan does not really have any aroma at all. It certainly does not smell of fake tan, which can be off putting. The info leaflet states it has a citrus aroma but I really could not smell much at all.
The product comes out brown so I could see exactly where it was being applied but no need to worry as this is not the colour your skin will go.
It smooths into the skin really well, dries instantly but stays moisturised for long enough so that you can blend it in as needed. It never feels like im pulling at my skin to rub it in.
A light result can be seen almost instantly but as with most tanning mousse. It does need to be left a few hours or over night to see the full result.
Lauren’s Way tanning mousse certainly does what it says on the tin. It gives a steak free natural looking tan.
I have found that the product does not wash off in a light shower either but tends to fade gradually and evenly just as a natural tan would. A few light top up applications help to keep the tan going and keep me looking bronzed throughout the hot days.
The colour is just about right for me. I would probably give the Lauren’s Way Dark shade a try out too. I think the Darker than Dark sounds a little too dark for me tho.
The price £15, can’t really be grumbled at. Professional spray tans cost anything from £10-£20 near me. This bottle will give a fair few even applications and you can do it in the comfort of your own home.
