It's that time of year when everyones skin starts to look paler and the summer holiday tans fade... I still enjoy being tanned in the colder season and love wearing self tanner to keep me looking bronzed and glowing. I recently came across the brand Sunjunkie on twitter and was really interested in trying the tanning products from their range to see how they compare to other brands.
So I've been trying out their Instant Dark Self Tanning Mousse* and Sunless Body Mist* over the past few weeks and I must say I'm totally impressed, especially with the mousse version. Each product comes with a tanning mitt and a latex glove so you can apply them with ease and without making a mess... I love using the latex glove to apply my everyday moisturiser too as it glides on my skin smoothly and takes up less time to apply for some strange reason.
One of my fave things about these tanning products is the smell, they both smell like coconut which reminds me of being on a sunny holiday.... ahhh bliss! The mousse dries into the skin instantly and the mist is a perfectly fine mist which also dries quite quickly so you're able to put on clothing straight after application. Both of these have a tan guide so you can see exactly where you've applied the product to stop you from having a streaky/uneven tan, this is perfect for beginners!
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to try these out as they are really good and the tan fades evenly (some tans can fade and look patchy/scaley). The smell is a big thing for me as coconut is one of my fave scents and it stops you from smelling like that awful fake tan/biscuity smell that most tans leave you with... not these guys though! As you can see in the picture above, the packaging explains how you may look streaky but once showered you're left with a perfectly eve tan. To be honest, I didn't look streaky at all before showering which is a plus... I also used both of these products on my face and they didn't break me out which I find some self tanners can be too heavy for my sensitive skin but these were fine.
You can purchase Sunjunkie from their official website here where they have tonnes of tanning products and also sell spray tanning kits for salons/beauticians.
I love my tan ;)
