Skinny Tan Launch Event and Review

I must admit, I don't watch Dragon's Den religiously, however, I was really excited when I learnt that a fabulous new beauty product was going on the show. If you watched first episode of the new series, you will have seen Kate Cotton and Louise Ferguson in action, gaining offers from all of the dragons for Skinny Tan. So last week I headed to London's Soho House Roof terrace to meet the ladies and hear all about the new product.


Here is my interview with Kate & Louise



I'm really excited about this product because it containing Guarana, which has been proven to reduce cellulite and improve body tone - so you can tan and tone up by one applying one cream. At the launch event I was treated to the products in the range: The Seven Day Tanner (£26.99/150ml) which causes a tan to develop in about 5 hours and lasts for a week, Gradual Tanner (£19.99/150ml) which is a moisturiser with a hint of the tanner to build up gradually, The Application Mitt (£3.45) which is velvety soft and brow - a revelation, so it doesn't look grubby and finally Abs Shader (£26.99/150ml) which is a male version - I will be trying to get a volunteer for this one soon!

The first thing that struck me was the amazing coconut fragrance of the gel, really yummy, next was how thick the gel was, it felt really luxurious and gave me plenty of time to rub it in and ensure I was streak-free , however, this did lead to slightly longer drying time. The gel is dark brown, which is great to help you see where you have applied the product, but does result in transfer on to clothing during development.

In my excitement, I totally forgot to take a before photo, but I was really pleased with the colour of the tan, really natural and no streaks.
