UTAN & Tone - Self Tan & Nourishing Night Cream
The U Tan & Tone nourishing night cream not only gives you a beautiful glow while you sleep, but it's also full of vitamins, antioxidants and anti-ageing nutrients
The lovely people at UTAN & Tone sent me a complimentary package to try out their new Weekly Self Tan Medium Lotion, to achieve a natural golden colour and the Nourishing Night Cream for a gradual face tan. When I did a little research on the brand before accepting, I found out that they use only natural quality ingredients in their products as well as packaging and they are also manufactured in the UK. Their before and after pictures on Instagram look fantastic too, so I accepted and couldn't wait to use it to give my pale skin that beautiful summer glow.
Weekly Self Tan Medium Lotion
Before I applied the lotion, I went in the shower and exfoliated head to toe and paid extra attention to my elbows, ankles and knees as these are areas of the skin I find on myself to be most dry. If your skin is very dry then you can always apply your ordinary body lotion before applying the tan, but making sure the body lotion has been thoroughly absorbed before doing so. Firstly I put on some plastic gloves and squeezed a generous blob of tanning lotion and began applying it to my legs in a circular motion, I then worked my way up and finished with my arms and to ensure my back was evenly covered my friend helped to apply it. I waited until my skin was dry before putting clothes on.
The weekly self tan lotion contains a body sculpting complex which helps to tone and firm the skin by flushing out toxins, which is a great benefit that some other self tans don't have.
Nourishing Night Cream
I applied the Nourishing Night Cream with gloves too and exfoliated my face and neck beforehand. The night cream is enriched with antioxidants, vitamin c, B5, B6, B9, & K, the anti-ageing nutrient Hyalauronic acid and an organic super moisturising night cream, that claims to protect, condition and hydrate the skin.
The before and after photo above shows the results after one use, it can take 3-4 hours to fully develop so I took the photo just over 4 hours after applying the tan. I am happy with the result and I shall carry on using it once a week just for a natural glow over the summer, it's also odour free which is a big plus too as some tans can smell a bit too much.
