A couple of weeks ago, I was so lazy one evening & I didn’t want to put my usual tan on. I remembered I heard of this quick tan that you put on for up to 3 hours & shower off, where it then develops. Sounded like my cup of tea. The next day, I purchased it in Rosmed Pharmacy, Roscommon Town.
So here’s what you need to know about this tan: “bBold smart mousse has 3 simple steps, APPLY, SHOWER, DEVELOP and with this regime you will become beautifully bronzed while feeling completely fresh.
Simply APPLY using a tanning mitt. Wait 1, 2 or 3 hours depending on your desired colour then SHOWER, rinse off and moisturise. Then feel completely fresh as you DEVELOP, as if you are not even wearing tan.

I applied the tanning mousse with my tanning mitt all over my body. The smell reminded me of one of the dove or garnier body lotions I have. I waited about 5 minutes before I put on loose clothing (hello, I have kids, I’m lucky I even had 5 minutes to spare to let the tan dry in this length). I had my shower after 4 hours to wash off the tan (was suppose to be 3 hours but was so behind time as usual) & I left it to develop.
If you follow me on my Snapchat lisanaughtonmua, you would know I didn’t know what to think of the Bbold smart tan mousse first. When I got up the next morning, it was a mix of an orangy, brown tan on my skin. There were no patches or streaks, so that was a major bonus. Alas, it began to fade on the 4th day but it faded beautifully & it was not one bit obvious.
So, I re-read the instructions again & it said to put on for 8 hours before showering for a ‘deliciously dark tan’. I popped the tan on again, this time for 9 hours & showered it off. This time, it was definitely more of a golden brown colour & just a tad darker than the time I left it on for 4 hours. Again, when the tan began to wear off, it looked like it was fading naturally. Hooray!!!
I am so, so, so happy I FINALLY found a budget tan that I can wear that’s not patchy or streaky. I am really pale naturally with dry skin & this tan did not dry out my skin one bit. If you want a really, really dark tan, I would advise to apply a second layer. I would highly recommend the bBold Smart Mousse. It’s €14.95 to buy in pharmacies & online.
