If you read my recent post you will see I am a fan of fake tanning, but sometimes it is difficult to ensure that your tan is fully flawless when doing it yourself.
I especially have problems with reaching my back now that I have nobody to assist me and so have been looking for an alternative method – other than contouring myself in to uncomfortable positions!
Then I heard about the Velvotan range and in particular their self tan back applicator. It seems so simple but looked effective so I thought I would put it to the test, along with a selection of other tanning essentials: a self tanning mitt for the body, a mitt for the face which is slightly smaller to ensure you can fill those awkward areas and a body polishing sponge to make your skin smooth prior to tanning to ensure an even glow.
The back applicator is pretty simple to use; you simple open it up and it will “click” in to place. Then apply your self tan to the applicator, reach it over your shoulder or up your back and you now have access to even the most awkward areas!
I found that this works best with mousse tans as when you are reaching the applicator over you are risking the product falling off – but these tend to cling on and make it to my back without getting all over the carpet!
I don’t know how I didn’t find this product earlier! It certainly makes the whole process a lot easier and avoids the white triangle on my back of where I can’t reach!
Have you tried Velvotan product before?
