Make Believe Fake Tan

I'm sure we are all aware by now I'm totally 100% obsessed with self tan. I'm not one to go and sit out in the sun , other than the fact that its harmful i find it just so boring even on holiday i can only lie on the sun lounger for 15 Minutes tops. I have skin the same shade as milk and I'm really quite fair. I like using tan to just take the edge off, make me feel more confident or just to look super sun kissed. I'm not afraid to go dark either.
So when the lovely team from make believe tan got in contact with me to try out a few of their products i jumped at the chance.

With the summer months upon us false tan is the best way for a safe sun kissed look.

They sent me a spa and polish exfoliator, the dark tanning mousse and the self tan mist.


The smell of the products is just Devine. Totally holiday smell sort of tuti fruiti.
The exfoliator isn't so grainy that it is too abrasive i just rub it all over the body to prep the skin ready for tan application. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth . I also use this in between tans to keep my tan fresh but also to stop build up and that horrible scaly skin that can happen with using false tan.

The Tanning mousse is just so easy to apply too. Just a pump or two for each section of my body onto a tanning mitt, and in circular motions I apply it. Again the smell is just amazing and it develops into a nice even natural glow, not at all orange either. I love that it has argan oil in to really nourish the skin because usually i find that self tan can really dry out my skin. Its really convenient too because this tan develops in 2-4 Hours (YAY)

I use the spray tanning mist in-between tans to keep up the glow, just a little spritz all over the skin and rub in with my tanning mitt. Again this has that gorgeous fragrance and develops within 4 hours. This tan is the darkest tan yet that make believe do. So sometimes ile only use this if I'm going on a night out just to amp up the darkness.

Left is with no tan, and right is with a light layer

overall I'm really impressed with this tanning kit, especially the smell, it is honestly the nicest smelling self tan that I have ever used.
At the moment I've got my eyes on the dead sea salt spa and polish it looks amazing and also the luminize skin highlighter.
I love that these products are all paraben free too and so so affordable. At the moment they have a few special offers on and the highlighter that I've just mentioned is currently £2. So for that price its defiantly worth purchasing.

  1. These sound amazing, particularly the smell as I hate how awful most fake tans smell!! I'm really pale too and am always nervous about trying fake tan in case I end up looking like an oompa loompa, so you've really made me want to try these :)
