The Best Self TannerMon, 23 May 2011
PRODUCT REVIEW | BODY
By Huda Heidi Kattan
After becoming a self-proclaimed enemy of the sun, I have seriously been on a quest to find the best self-tanner! I spent years becoming the best sun bather anyone could find, but after discovering waaay too many wrinkles and premature aging, I decided to bid my long term relationship with the beach good bye! Of course that doesn’t mean I plan on becoming snow-white glamorous! No! I plan on keeping my glow, but will undoubtedly be depending on the assistance of some very popular self tanners! So the quest begins! Here’s what I have found so far!
St. Tropez Self Tanning Mousse
Having been named one of the best self tanners created by many beauty sources and international beauty blogs, this mousse is great for creating an extremely strong tan in a short time. While I love the fact that the mousse is dark in color, which does help you allocate the location of the self tanner, after you wash it off, a lot of the color washes off as well. If you are looking for a quick tan in a couple of hours without reapplication, then this is your pick, but if you’re looking for a more natural tan, then you might be surprised to find yourself looking slightly orange with your hands a bit dirty looking. Not the best formula for novice self tanners, as can be hard to blend around knees and ankles. Definitely the best pick for a quick tan!
Clarins Delectable Self Tanning Mousse
This is without doubt may absolute favorite self tanner! I used both formulas, one on each leg and saw similar colors on both legs, except the Clarins left a less orange appearance and was also extremely easy to blend, even when I used heavy or small amounts, it always blended like a dream! I also loved the fact that this formula dried extremely fast, which meant that I could get dressed immediately afterward without worrying about any product transferring to my clothes. If you’re looking for an extremely natural tan that you can build over a few days, then you will love this! I have to say, this one is definitely my pick!
