Ok so if you know me well, you may know how much I am a fan of Geordie shore, especially the characters in the programme.
Amongst the real life shows , and there has been many this is one of them I have watched every single time with out fail of laughter.
Vicky Pattison is one of the people that takes role in the show and I have to say after seeing her transform herself from the common geordie girl to the stunning beauty she is today has been some what a pleasure of mine.
She has also been on another real life show ''Ex on the beach and '' and her amazing transformation when losing 3 stone and dropped 5 dress sizes gave the confidence to have her fitness DVD released "7 day slim'' showing a healthy looking new Vicky.
Not only is Vicky a past partner of the gorgeous Jay Gardener who also has his new range of tanning products , but Pattison also released an autobiography labelled "Nothing But The Truth" in August 2014 and it flew to #1 in the Best selling lists of various newspapers and tabloids
Vicky Pattison is not only someone who remembers who she is before fame but although still in the highlight keeps true to herself and her Geordie land town. I had the pleasure in receiving her VIP self tanning product and have to admit I was very excited to give her own line a try.
You can buy Vicky's VIP self tanning range from - www.viptanbyvicky.com
Cost - £15,50
I am beginning to understand that a tanning mitt is essential to help get that even colour and most certainly helps even it all out while application so I have to say if you have not got one , get one!
Vicky does have one but I did not receive mine so awaiting for it to come along with my bronzed mist spray which I am extremely excited about also.
Mousse has always been my favourite way of application too, the mousse seems faster and more effective for my liking . Well so far , you never know , I may find a new loved spray in the upcoming self tanning months.
What VIP By Vicky say about their product-
Geordie Shore’s sweetheart Vicky Pattison is proud to launch her very own range of sunless tanning solution for Salons and Mobiles, coupled with a superb retail range of mousses and aerosol for self tan application at home.
After just recently returning from Australia it has become very apparent to Vicky that there is a gap in market for a superior range of products to be available on a worldwide basis offering a safe, reliable yet beautiful tan that we all desire.
From our ‘Sun Kissed Glow’ which gives a wonderful hint of sunshine to our’ Golden Goddess’ with that Aphrodite looking Mediterranean glow. These are closely followed by our ‘Bronze Babe’ with looks of the Bahamas' s to the deep, dark, delicious tan of the tropics (Tropical Tan) .
So in conclusion, Vicky has a first class product packed with rich moisturisers’ which are naturally sourced, alcohol and paraben free, with a wonderful fresh fragrance. Vicky’s range will not only make you ‘look good’, but ‘feel good’ and stand out from the crowd! So what are you waiting for ?
What I have to say -
Ok , I know many of you will have been religiously self tanning through the summer but for me its the upcoming months where I need help most .
I am not the type of person who agrees with sunbeds and spending a fortune at the local salon , I simply ave neither the cash not the time for either.
The winter months seems to my most favourite time to have my bathroom filled with self tanning products , and it is lol.
I really cannot pull of that pale beauty look, I look ill and having a little 5 minute self tanning pamper gives me that healthy glow in minutes with no fuss or faf.
The medium tan is enough for my liking, the good thing I find with this product is that if I find the first application a little light , I can re apply again and you see that the colour is buildable .
For me the first application was a lovely natural tan shade , no orange tones at all , in fact it reminded me of when I was young and it looked like my golden glow , my skin once used to give me in the summer.
The application took literally seconds , I placed the mousse straight onto the mitt and applied, no moisturiser , no preparation just a good exfoliation the day before .
The self tan itself is made from natural ingredients and it says it also rejuvenates your skin. As soon as you apply the tanning mousse onto the skin you can see a slight colour , guiding you to the shade but it does build up later on after a couple more hours .
There is one pet peave I hate about self tanning, and that has to be the waiting about for it to dry, however, I found myself applying it wrapping up i a dressing gown and quickly sitting on the sofa as the post man arrived, it dried almost instantly which is fantastic for busy mum me.
The smell of baby talc is what I get from this product and I am not complaining due to the fact I have tried others that smell horrendously of chemicals and can be over bearing at times. This is lovely , subtle and most of all people don't recognise the smell of a fake tan .
I would totally recommend this product to anyone looking for an easy , affordable , natural looking tan, and if you like to build up tan shade in one product, you most certainly can with this product.
