The spray tan reminded me about my review I needed to post of the Superdrug Solait tanning mitt and Fake Bake mousse which I did a week or so ago.
I got this Fake Bake mousse from Superdrug too and it has different packaging to normal fake bake and it says 'Beyond Bronze' on the bottle. This one is absolutely rubbish so please just get the normal one and don't make the mistake I did! I have no idea why the formula is different but it is so steer well clear of this. It is on the left in the pick below. When I do face tan myself I use the facial tanner in the bottle to the right in the pic below and and this stuff is brilliant.
I had never used a mitt before to apply this product as I usually apply wearing latex gloves. Let me tell you this made it soo so so much easier, I would say 80% easier using this mitt. It is from Superdrug and cost just under £3. Here is how I apply it, yes the mousse looks like something disgusting lol!
I start at the bottom of my body and work up. Basically to apply just squirt a big blob of mousse on your mitt and spread it in a line (up your leg or arm), scoop up the excess and do the same on the next stripe of leg until it is all covered. Move from your legs to your bum and back, then do your tummy, then boobs and top of chest, then arms and then face.
How I Do My Feet and Hands
Personally I tan my entire body and face and leave my hands and feet until last. Once everything else has a coat of tan I put a blob of tan and a blob of oil free moisturiser on the mitt like this:
And then I rub this all over the foot (well the top) and the ankle and blend it in with the leg fake tan so it looks all one even colour, then I take one glove off and do that hand and then carefully take the mitt off and do the last hand. You must use oil free moisturiser or it will not mix with the tan properly, it also must not be fragranced as some perfumes turn fake tan green (mm shrek look)!
I then (depending on whether it is Summer or Winter) dry myself off with the cold shot on my hairdryer or my fan if it's summer, this is so that when I put on my clothes the guide colour doesn't wear off and ruin them. And then I leave the tan on overnight and wash off in the shower in the morning.
This mitt can be used over and over again as you can put it in the washing machine. I think this would be best for mousse tan rather than liquid or spray as it would just absorb the liquid or spray causing a waste of product. Using this compared to using gloves (with a mousse product) meant that my face and body looks tanned evenly with the guide colour so if I want to go out or to the shops etc. I canand I will look fine, sometimes when I apply with gloves the guide colour looks too dark or too patchy even if it is applied properly and I would not be able to go out without getting laughed at!
I would definitely recommend this product if you use mousse tan, and I will be repurchasing a backup.
Don't you just love a brilliant cheap product?!!
