I love summer – Summer has always been my favourite season and I’m definitely one of those people that will hold onto summer as long as humanly possible. Today is probably the last semi-warm day of the year and the weather forecast for next week makes me want to crawl under my bed and never come out again. I know, the warm, sunny days have to come to an end at some point but I refuse to give up my my summer glow. As soon as the temperatures drop, I’m a total convert to the fake tan life. I just can’t help but want to keep that gorgeous sun-kissed look throughout autumn and winter too. So in today’s post, I’m going to talk about how I keep my summer glow all year-round.
Fake tan is probably my favourite „let’s keep summer alive forever“ products. Now, there are two brands in particular that I’ve been really enjoying using over the past few years. The one thing that I find extremely annoying about fake tan is that you have to leave it on for hours and hours to develop or even sleep in it, which is my idea of a horrible nights sleep. Well, not with the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Instant Tan. This product is considered a cult beauty item and can 100% agree with that. Accelerating ingredients help to develop quickly and depending on the shade you would like to be, can be showered off after just one hour. I usually leave it on for two or three hours to get beautifully dark, bronzed skin. I apply this mousse with a Tanning Mitt to get a flawless result and it dries within a few seconds. Another awesome brand, which I’m sure you’ve all heard of, is Bondi Sands. I was so excited when their products were finally available to buy on Feelunique that I ordered pretty much everything from their range. Two products in particular really stood out for me and I use them everyday in my bodycare routine. The Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk is the best gradual tanning product I’ve ever tried. Enriched with aloe vera and Vitamin E, this product moisturizes my skin beautifully with a subtle cocoa butter scent. This is definitely the perfect product to develop a stunning natural tan while still nourishing your skin everyday. Next up, we have the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mist which I love using for my face, hands and feet because I find that it develops and blends nicer on those areas than the mousse.
