Skinny Tan 7 Day Tanner and Tanning Mitt
So, the tanner. As you may have seen in my post last week on the new Cocoa Brown fake tan, I am not a tan aficionado - far from it - so this was really only my second foray into the world of fake tan application. Skinny Tan also have a tanning mitt available, which we thought was ingeniously brown in colour - so doesn't look mucky once you've used it. It's a really well-made mitt and it really was water resistant so no seeping through to stain my hands. I applied the deliciously honey-scented (apparently it's actually coconut) bronze-coloured cream tanner (no biscuits here!) with the mitt, but like I said, I'm no expert in tan application and I actually found it really tricky to get it on evenly (I always mess up my ankles and knees!) so I was a bit worried that I'd wake up this morning with terrible streaks. Actually, not so - it looks surprisingly streak-free! (I did wake up to the aroma of biscuits though, which wasn't so great...) I put it on at about 10.30pm and washed it off at 8.30am the next morning.

Do you think it improves the cellulite?
Not a bad colour: not too orange and not too dark for my skin. The difficulty I had in application meant that I found it a bit of a hassle - and I don't think I'm committed enough to do the sleeping in it and letting it develop overnight thing either. I like quick and instant results! I'm not entirely convinced by the cellulite claims - like most women, I have a fair amount on my thighs - I think it's more about the colour covering it up than the ingredients to be honest, but maybe it'll have more effect after a few uses. It's a nice product, but with so many products on the market and this being priced at £26.99 I'm not sure I would spend the extra money just to cover my cellulite.
Skinny Tan have a variety of products available on their website www.skinnytan.co.uk with prices starting at £19.99.
