Product: Soltan Beautiful Bronze Self-Tan Lotion
The Soltan Beautiful Bronze Self-Tan Lotion comes in a 200ml generous sized light brown plastic bottle. It as the Soltan logo at the front describing the product and also a label at the back listing the ingredients and the how to use instructions, the bottle also as a dispensable pump.
Before using the product i showered, got rid of any unwanted hair, exfoliated then moisturised. As with any self-tan it’s advised that you use a tanning mitt or gloves as the product tends to stain the hands, i used latex throwaway gloves which i personally prefer than to using a mitt.
I started off by using a little amount then rubbing the lotion onto my skin evenly, using sparingly on elbows, knees, feet and hands. The lotion is visible on the skin so you can see exactly where you’re applying. The first thing i noticed with the product is the glow it gave, it as tiny glittery particles in the lotion and this shows on the skin, not so overly so but i felt it gave a nice sheen. The smell was quite pleasant, a very light scent which didn’t smell like the usual fake tan products.
The lotion doesn’t dry straight away so there is a little waiting around, infact the colour becomes water proof and sweat proof after two hours so i would wait around an hour or so until dressing as the glittery particles did rub off onto my finger. A little frustrating if you’re in a rush so definitely apply hours in advance.
It is advised to allow 2-3 hours for the tan to develop, if you want a deeper tan you can then re-apply after the time limit. I’m quite pale so didn’t feel the need to apply anymore of the lotion as i was hoping to achieve a more natural look as anything too dark can look too overpowering on my skin tone.
Once developed i was really impressed with my skin colour, a lovely glow and definitely more tanned. I’ve enclosed a before and after picture below so you can see:
Overall i’m really impressed with the product, i don’t normally find many fake tans which work well for me but this one is fantastic on my skin and i love the end result.
The only downside for me is the tan is hard to remove afterwards, i’m on day 3 now and after numerous baths and showers the tan still hasn’t removed from my legs. Not too much of a biggy as it hasn’t gone streaky and dries evenly, the goods by far outweigh the bads.
I’ll defininitely continue to use the Soltan Beautiful Bronze Self-Tan Lotion and will definitely purchase again in future.
The beautiful bronze range is 3 for 2 at the moment in Boots, i'm going to stock up.
Any questions then please feel free to ask.
