It is February and to be honest I am sick to death of this cold and miserable weather, where is the sun? .
My skin is struggling terribly, it is very dry and being very pale I look really ill with it.
Something simply had to be done over the weekend, so I gave myself a pampering and decided to add a little colour onto my skin.
The problem is, I actually hate the fact that tanning products seem to smell of that fake chemical and can sometimes make you look a little orange and in the cold winter months you can spot the fake tanners a mile of .
Over the past year , I think the tanning mousse seem to have come a long way, I have found them so easy to apply and the formulas have become fantastic to the point that there is no yellow or orange tones in the tan giving you a natural look.

My thoughts -
My first impressions of the 2 hour tan is that it has a familiar bottle, the push nozzle which lets out a lovely frothy mousse.
The mousse looks a lot lighter than other tanning mousse I have used before and also has a lovely Almond scent which stays on the skin afterwards , in fact I could still smell it the next day.
The mousse is smooth to apply but I do feel I had a little texture issue with application.
I was OK applying it at first but as I continued to apply the tanning mousse in a circular motion onto my previously cleansed and exfoliated skin, I found that the mixture started to form somewhat of a very thin cream like substance which made it a little harder to apply, I really can not describe it but it was not something I was used to with tanning mousse .
I found that the product dried very quickly into the skin, I did not have to wait around for a few minutes before adding my clothing and carrying on with my normal routine.
After only 2 hours I took a peak at the result of the developed shade and was pleasantly surprised (although having some difficulty with the texture during application) that the tan was left streak free and a lovely natural shade.
To be honest I actually find the product quite pricey and being more expensive than my trusted self tanning mousse I would be unsure of wearing this in the summer due to the fact it did not go dark enough for my liking but for the winter months where I am looking for a lighter shade , one that has a more natural shade , this is perfect as it has no orange tone to it.
I think this is a product that is more appealing to those of a paler skin tone, those who have paler skin would be more suited to this product because of its very light shade.
What do you think of tanning mousse , is it your preferred application style ?
