Picture the scene: It's the pre-holiday toiletry dash around Boots, anything that promised a hint of bronze was in my basket with little thought.
I don't know if it was the attractive stand baring multiple 'bronzey' gifts or the novelty of a spray on bronzer but I decided to part with my £8.99 and give it a whirl.
Before you all recoil at the Dickinson-esque mess on my hand, I must stress the magic of this product really does depend on a careful, light handed application.
The far to close spray above does however, show you the type of colour you're getting, a slightly red based bronze that enhances a tan beautifully.
Exhibit B shows the bronzer sprayed a good distance from the skin then just slightly rubbed over to get rid of any major differences. The results? Instant tanned skin.
So, why is this a rave?
I've upgraded this from a good review to a rave simply because it's performance 'en vacances'.
Unlike other more liquid based body bronzing products, this went on in a flash and really was a lifesaver in the first few days. It's smells divine, like vanilla and cocoa beans and didn't budge even when it contending with temperatures in the high 30's.
Is it a novelty? Yes. Would I have invested if it wasn't for the pre-holiday toiletry dash? Probably Not.
Has it proven it's worth? Oh Yes.
It comes in a variety of shades, I opted for 12 fair/medium but if you're after a deeper tan you can pick it up in shade 14 olive/tanned skin.
A Definite Holiday Must!
