It’s certainly that time of year to start thinking about working on a safe tan for summer! I know every year about this time, I’m anxious to get a nice glow going so I’m feeling my best when summer finally comes.
I’m always looking for the newest, best, and safe way to get a good tan. I normally use lotions, which seem to take a lot of uses before you finally start to get that glow. I’ve used a spray tanning system in the past and while it gave me a really nice dark glow, it also took me a lot of tries before I finally got it down to where it wasn’t leaving lots of ugly orange streaks on me every time I used it! But I did love how easy spray systems are to use and how fast you can get a really great glow. So when I heard about Colour Couture’s Red Carpet Ready Tanning Spray, I couldn’t wait to try it out!
Colour Couture’s Red Carpet Ready Tanning Spray is designed to work quickly and smoothly to get you that perfect, super nice tan, in a safe, efficient manner AND it lasts up to 7-10 days!
When I first tried this spray, I was super happy with it! I’m also very happy to report after about a month of continued use, I’ve not had one ugly orange streak! You just hold the can 12 inches away from your body and spray on exfoliated, freshly cleaned and dry skin.
What I have learned from using spray tanning systems in the past, is to keep moving the can when spraying. I use up and down motions on my legs and arms, and then a sweeping motion from left to right across my back, buns, stomach, and chest. This seems to give me the best even tan, without getting any streaks, and this motion worked really well with the Red Carpet Ready Tanning Spray!
When using the Colour couture Red Carpet Ready Tan Spray, I loved that I could see if I got too close in one spot, because it was immediately darker than the rest of me. I would then just grab a cloth mit and smooth it out. I smoothed it all over my skin the first few times I used this spray just to make sure my tan would be completely even, but after a few uses, I found I didn’t even need it (except for those spots I got too close to, which happens every now and then!)
I was really excited with how fast I could apply this and be done after my shower. It only took about 2 minutes to apply and then I would wait about 5 minutes before dressing, although my skin felt dry right away. It takes me a lot longer to apply tanning lotions so I found this to be a huge pro!
Also I absolutely loved the natural tan it gave me and I noticed it right away! I used this about 2-3 times a week and have already developed a really nice tan. My husband was gone the first week and commented on my nice tan when he came home and saw me! He thought I had been out in the sun it looks so natural, but I filled him in on my little secret! 🙂
Overall I really loved using this product and will definently continue to use it in the future! I get a nice natural looking, safe tan instantly, and it only takes me a few minutes! No streaks either! I love how much quicker it is than a lotion too!
