Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Self Tanning Mousse
I’ve had the winter virus doing the rounds, which has left me feeling very pale and uninteresting. I wanted a hint of colour without anything too obviously fake – there’s no chance of me getting a real tan in London at the moment, so I decided to give the Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Self-tanning Mousse a try.
They have also brought out a kit of an exfoliating glove and a mitt in a pack which I think is a great idea as both products work in perfect harmony with each other!
I recorded a video to show my initial thoughts and results – if you’d like to watch, click below:
It was really easy to apply – I found it sank into the skin quickly, although my skin felt a little tacky for a while after getting dressed wasn’t a problem. The colour guide in the mousse is a great colour and looks realistic so going out with it on while the colour develops would be fine! It’s perfect for if you want an instant colour for a night out and then a developing colour for the following day.
In terms of the shimmer, it was evident when it was first applied, but once I showered the following morning no shimmer was left. Because I didn’t want the shimmer on my face I used the Dry Face Mist on my face – it was simple to apply – just a matter of spraying it over my face. I didn’t notice a massive difference, but the tan I used was the light glow for fair skin. It definitely helped to keep me blended as the same colour!
The best thing about the tan is the smell, or lack of it! It smells fruity, almost sun-tan lotion-esque. My boyfriend said he smelt a hint of biscuit overnight, but personally I couldn’t smell any fake tan smells!
I woke up with a hint of sun kissed glisten to my skin – nothing too dramatic, but perfect for a pick me up and just what I needed.
