Another tan, another review. There is so much hype about this tan! A client of mine gave it to me as a thank you, so I was super excited to try it out!! I had to wait for my BBold tan to come off first though.
Here is what Bellamianta Rapid Mousse Tan states:
“The Bellamianta Rapid Mousse is an easy to use self-tan that lasts up to 7 days. The 60 second rapid drying mousse develops in 2-4 hours and is suitable for all skin types. The light mousse formula hydrates your skin to ensure that the tan wears off evenly with no fake tan smell. The natural ingredients active the tan to give you the perfect streak-free, natural golden tone that is water resistant.
• Dries in 60 Seconds
• Develops in 2-4+ hrs
• Golden Olive tone
• Ready to wear colour
• Streak free / Easy to use
• Transfer & Water resistant
• Even wear off”
After a few days, when the remaining BBold tan came off, I had a shower early morning to do the normal skin prep for a tan, like exfoliate with my Tan Eraser mitt & my rituals scrub. I went to work & when I got home about 9.30pm, I applied the Bellamianta Rapid Mousse Tan. It was a tinted mousse, so I could see where I was applying (thank God for tinted mousse!). There wasn’t a strong smell to it, there was a light tan smell & it had dried in within a couple of minutes. I went to bed & left the tan on overnight. When I woke up, the tan was a really beautiful, dark bronze colour. I was so excited to see what the result was going to be. I showered it off, no exfoliation or shower cream, I dried myself off & popped on some dove moisturiser.
When I had a proper look at the tan, I was actually in shock. It was orange, not half as dark as before I went into the shower & patchy on my arms, stomach & leg area. The wear off after a few days was good, it didn’t go noticably patchy on me like others do, but I was so disappointed.
First picture (on left) is a before & after, the second picture (on right) is the patchiness on my arm.
Unfortunately, this tan isn’t for me, which is so sad, as I really wanted to be that dark, bronzed girl before I washed the tan off. This tan retails between €23.95 – €24.95 in pharmacies nationwide.
