Hands up; I’m addicted to tanning.
My bathroom cabinets are heaving with golden lotions and bronzing potions for everyday use and special shades, mousses and formulas for big nights out.
I own gradual tanners, face tanners, all the gloves and mitts available and every shade of instant tan from light to body-builder.
BUT I’d happily swap it all for a lifetime supply of one new product.
Bellamianta’s new Liquid Gold Self Tanning Tinted Lotion is an absolute dream for faux tan fans.
The lightweight formula smooths on easily (it’s completely free of alcohol and chemicals), goes exactly where you want it to and dries in 60 seconds, leaving your skin instantly bronzed.
That means you can put it on before a flight, à la travel and fitness blogger Maura Higgins…
The gorgeous golden olive tone (no accidental orange disasters) continues to develop over the next four hours and it lasts up to seven days, wearing off evenly.
The best bit? Odour neutralisers mean there’s no biscuity smell so you can pop on a layer before you hit the town.
Oh, and you can throw that nasty old fake tan t-shirt away too.
Bellamianta Liquid Gold Self Tanning Tinted Lotion is €14 in pharmacies and online here.
