If standing in your bathroom in a starfish shape, smelling like old biscuits for an hour fills you with dread, then fear no more! Faux tanning has never been faster or easier thanks to Utan & Tone.
|Utan & Tone 3 Piece Face and Body Glow Collection|
Utan and Tone is the innovative Scottish brand created by Michelle Mone and manufactured in Britain. Using the best natural and cruelty free products it not only incorporates incredible skincare into each gradual tan product but also combines skin toning and firming properties too. It’s time to say goodbye to that smelly, orange, faux tan of old and embrace the naturally glowing Utan and Tone collection.
Coming up on QvcUK on Friday 19th May is this 3 piece Utan & Tone Collection that enables you to quickly and effortlessly apply your tan and see it appear within 4-6 hours. I have the Golden collection which is so natural and pretty looking and suitable for even the fairest skin tone.
|Utan & Tone Coconut Tanning Water|
As an absolute addict to anything Coconut and basically consuming my weight in Coconut water each day, this was always going to be a winner for me. Naturally hydrating, this coconut tanning water is incredibly pure and contains very few ingredients. As well as smelling absolutely incredible (making you drift off to lands far away instead of my rainy back garden in Essex) it feels cooling and soothing on the skin. Perfect for use in warmer weather too as it lifts and hydrates the skin.
Incredibly easy to use to get a naturally even and glowing sun kissed look, shake the can and starting from the neck, spray in a zig zag motion upwards to the top of your face. I love this because it can be used anytime of the day under or over make up to refresh the skin as a hydrating mist, but also to build a level of colour over 4-6 hours. This is my favourite product in the collection, you just cannot over use it and it adds a completely natural glow to your skin.
Spray & Glow Golden –
|Utan & Tone Spray & Glow Golden Spray|
This incredibly light weight spray moisturiser, not only hydrates your skin beautifully but also builds up a glowing, natural looking tan which you can apply over an existing tan to keep it topped up after a holiday, or use on its own to give a natural glow. This tan is incredibly easy to do yourself, if like me it’s getting harder and harder to reach your toes, then no fear. Due to a 360 degree mist this can be applied all over the body, and dries down within a minute allowing for easy dressing. As this is a moisturiser in a can you can choose to apply as a mist and leave it to dry (which I do) or massage it in like you would a regular body lotion. For me I would only use this to spray my arms chest and legs as that’s pretty much all anyone can bare to see exposed from my body and this is really easy for me to do myself plus, I will get quite a few applications out of the can this way depending upon the coverage I want. Important to note when doing you legs is that you need to have shaved or waxed them at least 24 hours prior to spraying, otherwise you may wake up to find those horrible dark spots in the pores and nobody wants to see that. Stand on a bath mat or old towel, and spray over the body in a continuous fashion at a 20-30cm distance. The closer you spray the more deeper your tan will be. There will be full instructions supplied to tell you how to stand etc. Just make sure you wash your hands after. You can use this each day until you are happy with the depth of tan. This tan is so natural and light, that the first day after application I could barely see it, so I just built it up until I achieved my desired colour. The reason I mention that is, when using the Golden collection, if you are super snow white fair, or worried about Faux tan, this is the one you want!! You are in complete control of the colour you want to achieve.
|Utan & Tone Nourishing Night Cream|
Enriched with antioxidants and Vitamins C, B5, B6, B9 & K this feels like a beautiful, luxurious night cream that is full of hyaluronic acid to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. This feels really nourishing on and does not smudge off onto the pillow. Super easy to use, just press down the air tight, cushion top which dispenses a premeasured dose and apply evenly over the face avoiding your eyebrows, and massaging carefully around the jawline and hairline. This would be my night product to keep an existing tan topped up as I did find that upon cleansing my face in the morning some of the product disappeared, so for that reason I wouldn’t count on this product alone to give me a faux tan, but for use throughout the summer or on holiday this would be perfect.
This really is a super easy to use lovely, natural, golden self tan collection. Not only does it smell gorgeous, like tropical holidays, but it leaves my dry skin, deeply hydrated and looking healthier and glowing, who wouldn’t want that?
