I have mixed feelings after trialing this Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Spray.
So I'll start with the all the best bits….
I absolutely LOVE the colour it gives me. I would even go as far as saying that I prefer it to my usual St Tropez. It's not as noticeable as other tans I've used, but I actually really like that it's much more of a subtle glow. It's what I would describe as a 'winter tan'. It just gives my skin a lovely colour that doesn't look like I've tried to fake it.
The applicator is great, it sprays out an even mist, and is pretty much mess free, as long as you keep it a good 30cms away from your body. I actually found this method much less messy than using mousse, especially for tanning my back myself, it was perfect. The instructions say you don’t need a mitt but I used one anyway just to try and make it even and blend it in while it was wet still.
It dries quickly and I had no problem with colour transfer onto my bed sheets or clothes.
Now, the only problem with this product is that when you spray the tan on, it actually comes out clear, so you can't really see which areas of your body you've covered and which you might have missed.
The first time I used this tan, I managed to get the top half of my body even, but I'll be honest, my legs were pretty patchy.
You know me by now and I'm certainly no stranger to fake tan, so I definitely wouldn't recommend this to a tanning newbie. It took me a couple of attempts to get the hang of it, and as I said before, I've been using a mitt to help me out!
Over all though, I did really like this tan, once I got used to the application. I will definitely be buying it again during the winter.
Have you tried DIY spray tans before? Do you change your tanning routine in the winter?
