Everyone that knows me knows that I am a bit of a beauty magpie. Give me fake tan, lip sticks and new foundation any day! I love trying out new products and having tried so many brands, I’ve come to build up very high expectations so I am pleasantly surprised when I find I like the product!
This week I ran out of my favourite tan… nightmare! Mum life just caught up on me and since my event was the following day I knew I had no time for a spray tan! Thankfully, I have built up a stock of false tans over the past year so I had a new bottle of B Bold in my tanning box.
So what did I think?
I love a good, dark tan and this definitely did not disappoint. I applied two layers and found it to be a lovely creamy consistency. The consistency made it easy to apply as it just glided onto my skin. The guide colour of the tan was also a beautiful colour which made it easier to apply and less of a guessing game when calculating how many layers I needed. I always think of first time tanners when I look at the guide colour and this one would help even first time self tanners apply their tan correctly.
The tan took around 30-60 minutes to dry but I didn’t mind as Annie was tucked up in bed so I stuck on my PJ’s and chilled on the sofa with a sneaky gin before bed – every cloud has a silver lining eh?
The following morning when I washed the tan off I was over the moon with the colour pay off. It appeared flawless on my skin with no dry patches or streaks.
I got around 4 or 5 days out of my B Bold tan before it started to fade. I was pleasantly surprised at how it faded, it really just gradually disappeared from my skin with some of the drier areas of my skin appearing a little more patchy – totally normal for my post baby skin.
