Evening pups!!

It's practically the end of August now and I for one am very glad about it. I cannot freaking wait for Autumn, being able to snuggle up in the warm with a hot chocolate and movies. 

Autumn for me is the most beautiful time of year, I love the smells, the colours and all things associated with Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas. It literally cannot come soon enough. 

Just because it's transitioning into Autumn doesn't mean that you cannot keep your natural or be it, fake golden glow throughout the chillier months. Obviously across the globe it's not slipping into Autumn everywhere, I am talking about the UK here but that doesn't mean this doesn't apply to you. 

Last week, I was kindly sent over from Fake Bake their 3D face and body tanning kit as part of their #SaveYourSelfie campaign. I have also written a 'confidence' story to be featured on their site, which I am waiting for it to go live.

Thanks Fake Bake!! 

I have never tried their products before but have always been interested in the brand as they present their products beautifully. 

Now, as everyone knows I am a pale face, a vampire if you must but I am no stranger to fake tan in the slightest. I have tried and tested a few brands and products, some of which I would never re-purchase again. 

I do have quite dry skin in general, I do moisturise a lot but even so my skin remains in that problem area. This is what puts me off fake tanning because my tan NEVER ends up even, just patchy. 

Annoying much. 

I just end up scrubbing the tan away and regain my sun deprived skin. 

I will be honest with you I didn't have a lot of hope for this product working on me and not because it's the products fault, it's the fact my idiotic skin just says "NO". 


I love the presentation of this kit, I really warm to the fact that it's white and gold. It's aesthetically pleasing and gives the kit a luxurious feel to it.  

This kit retails at £49.95 and contains the following;

. Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum (148ml) 
. Airbrush Self-Tan (207ml)
. Pro Blend Dab Hand Applicator 
. Step-by-step guide 
. Gloves

The shade I was sent was 'medium' which is perfect for me as I can find the 'light' versions never tan me enough. If I am tanning I want to see a result. 

Basically this kit allows you to tan your skin all over with the serum provides and then using the 'airbrush' spray you can contour your legs, body and face. That's what the sponge applicator is for, to contour your cheeks, chin, jawline, nose and forehead. 

I have never seen another brand bring something like this to the table. It's refreshing. I decided not to touch my face with this tan first off because if it went wrong I would be stuck with a seriously tribal looking face. Ha. 

The instructions are great to follow and includes diagrams.

I haven't got round to using the instant spray tanner yet as I just wanted to test out the serum on its own first. The serum bottle comes with a lovely shiny gold pump and it deposits small amounts of product which is super handy as you won't waste any. 

As per the instructions, I applied this at night with the gloves provided. I applied the serum in circular motions to ensure everything was evenly blended in. I had pre-moisturised especially on my dry areas such as the knees and elbows and covered my whole body in the solution. 

It comes out as a dark serum so you can see where you are applying it, it drys quite quickly too and oh my goodness... THE SMELL... THE SMELL IS AMAZING. It smells like it says on the bottle. Like coconuts. Not freaking biscuits. 

I then walked around my room for around 30 minutes for it to air dry before going to bed. 

The instructions on the bottle said to leave it on between 6-8 hours and wash off in the morning. 

I did just that. 

The one thing I didn't like was that the tan, once applied remained sticky/tacky and it made it really hard for me to sleep as I felt uncomfortable. It was a warm night too so that wouldn't of helped either.

You can see the results for yourself below. 

* I did use my phone cam for these as it was early and I couldn't be bothered to get my SLR out*. 

I will be completely honest it did go patchy in the areas I expected it to go patchy in which was the font of my shin and just around my top arm area. These areas' had little tan on them.

I was expecting this and I am not a pro at applying tan so that would of added salt to the wound. 

What I will say is that this is the best fake tan I have actually used so far. It produced an even tan (to those area's that weren't dry) and was a really lovely shade. It made me feel and look really healthy.

My elbows and knees decided to take the tan on more, even though I had moisturised them prior to application. My dad gave me a funny look when he saw them as they were pretty outlandish. Ha. Other than that, the tan was perfect and so was the shade.

 I cannot wait to re-apply this and this time I have bought a mitt in hope the application on my behalf may come out better. 

I would highly recommend this product on my first impressions alone, the serum goes a long way so it's going to last you a while, which means it's well worth the price tag.

If you're looking for a self tanner to do at home I hope this post has helped you make a decision on what to choose.
