Experience with self tanner

As promised , it's a post about my first ever experience with self tanner. I am very pale for Asian and after working out for about a few months now, I kind of want to get tanned to look fitter. So I look all over Singapore, to find a self tanner and I ended up with Sephora body mist self tanner spray.



It comes in a small orange golden tone bottle with a cap on top, the tanner only comes in a color which they didn't state specifically but I think it's kind of golden brown tone. I actually read lots of review about the product before I actually bought it, you can read up all the reviews at http://sephora.com . For me, I find it safer to read about other people experience before using any product. So it turned out that there's lots of good review about the product and I am thinking " why not ? I should just give it a go"



I purchased the spray mist at the price of $24 , it's worth the price. I spray the mist only at area where people can see my skin which is the body part like my leg, arm, neck and the back cause I wear tank top almost all the time.



I applied the mist by myself in my room, it's quite easy and when you spray the mist you can actually see the brown color which means you won't miss a spot as it can be seen at which area you sprayed before. After spraying on my body, I will use my hand and rub at the area to get it to spread and dry faster which made me ended up with " Orange Hand" but luckily the smell of the spray mist is tolerable, I read a lot of other reviews which mentioned that self tanner has that awful smell but mine didn't , mine smelled like coconut and I love coconut so it isn't a big problem for me.

I leave the self tanner on for about 30 minutes before wearing back the sleeping clothes and about 8hours or 9 hours later then I had a shower, the tanned color gradually build up. When I exercise and shower, the color still stayed there, it didn't fade off or become lighter yet which is a good thing.

It's my second day with the tanned and it haven't fade away, I think it'll last probably about 3-4 days. It's a distinct change from my original skin tone, like 2 or 3 shades darker which is great. My friend told me now I look healthier and they didn't even noticed it's a fake tanned until I told them about it. 

You can see the distinct differences between my real skin tone which is the stripe area that I missed and the self tanner color.

I definitely love the healthier glow and the tanned skin tone that I am having now.

I am looking for new brand of self-tanner for future use, it's always fun to trail and error with different brand and types of self tanner.

Do you guys self tanned ? (: Do tell me about your favorite self tanner and your experience with self tanning!

xoxo

  16. Nice to see a self-tan review in Singapore!! Nice review and description :)

    Just to share a place in Sg thats specialises in self-tan products: www.baked.sg

    I usually get my self-tan stuff from there as retail outlets in sg dont really stock the 'big' self tan brands like fake bake ;/
