Now, it isn't often that I will review any tan which isn't Xen-Tan. But, I have never used Lauren's Way simply because in all honesty, I am not a huge Lauren Goodger fan. Sorry to all the fan girls out there, I'm sure she is a lovely girl, but the way that The Only Way Is Essex portrayed her really didn't do her many favours. But, I feel that it's quite mature that I still use her products, because they are actually immense and it goes to show, that no matter who is behind the products, they are worth a try. I haven't ever heard a bad thing about this fake tan, the colour is just incredible and I got so many compliments on it, so read below to find out more about this super tan...
Firstly, the packaging. I do think this fake tan will look pretty in any young girls bedroom. Although the bottle does remind me a little bit of the St.Moriz bottle, the pink modern font takes away from this and does actually make the product look high end. I like the simplicity of the product packaging.
The bottle is easy to use, with simply one pump, mousse comes out. Quite a lot comes out actually and because the colour of this is darker than dark, you really don't need to apply much at all. I used to always use mousse tans but I do feel like they can be a bit drying, however, this is only drying when it comes out of the tube, once applied to the skin it actually glides on and feels quite moisturising. I did really notice the morning after, how shiny, smooth and radiant my legs looked. The colour which you see when you first apply this tan will be a lot darker than the colour that you'll see in the morning when you wash it off due to a colour guide, so don't freak if it looks black. But, with this fake tan, you really don't need to apply a lot, it is really dark, which means a little bottle goes a long way.
In terms of colour, this tan is not orange at all, it is a really really deep brown. It made my legs look really shiny and my Mum commented on how sun kissed I looked. It really does give that 'yeah I've been to the Bahamas for three weeks' natural look. I did go really brown with it on so I will apply less next time for more of a natural look, but even so, my Mum did comment on how natural it did look, because of the intensity of the colour. This tan really does go a long way, you really don't need to apply a lot for a perfectly intense colour. It also makes your legs look immaculate, because the mousse almost seems to prime the legs. I have been wearing this tan for a week now and only now do I need to start moisturising, it hasn't flaked off as of yet, which I am really impressed with. I think this may be because I also used the body polish before hand in the shower to get rid of any dry bits of skin.
All in all, I am really impressed with both of these products, the tan takes minutes to apply, it's easy, you don't need to apply a lot and the colour is really intense yet perfectly dark, which is great for someone like me, who loves to be bronzed. This product was £19.95, and whilst that seems expensive, for something which doesn't go orange, is easy to apply and gets you lots of compliments, I do think it's worth it. I've seen far too many fake tan disasters in my time. Spray tans cost at least £15.00, and when a tan like this gives you the same immaculate finish as a spray tan but at least you can use a bottle of fake tan over and over, I find that it helps to justify the price point.
You can see me wearing it here, as you can see, very even and natural.
