As I mentioned in my previous Confidence post I am a lover of fake tan, especially with the weather as horrible as it’s been recently! I find I can be a creature of habit when it comes to tan and rarely change up what I use if I find one that works for me but recently I tried ‘The Jaymi Hensley Collection’ from Solaris and I’ve fallen in love!
If the AMAZING sweet smell of strawberries wasn’t enough the formula is one of the best I’ve tried. I find mousse’s the easiest to apply and this one is no different. I prepared my skin as I do before applying any tan, exfoliated in the shower with a sugar scrub and moisturised everywhere, focusing on any dry parts like my elbows. Once the moisturiser soaked in I applied the tan using a tanning mitt and it went on perfectly. It felt super moisturising on the skin and it wasn’t at all patchy or streaky!
I went with the shade medium as I am quite pale with no tan on but didn’t want anything too dark and I think it was the perfect shade choice. It just gives a nice glow as if you’ve come back from a holiday. When it began to fade away I applied another layer on top and it didn’t go muddy which some tans do when they are layered. I think my least favourite thing about some fake tans is trying to get them off. Most go scaly and patchy and that turns me off a product instantly, but this one doesn’t, this tan just fades away gradually.
If you’re looking for a tan with a great formula that doesn’t have that awful chemical smell give this one a try. Let me know what you thought in the comments below if you’ve tried it! Follow me on Snapchat and Instagram to see the tan in use.
