Just to get it out there, I’m not So Sue Me’s biggest fan. Like fair play to her, but she’s not really my cup of tea. Although I love her lashes, I wasn’t that tempted to spend €20+ on her tan when I came out first. Any reviews or comments I’ve seen on it have either been saying it’s hands down the best tan ever, or not worth it in the slightest. But, I eventually decided to pick it up when I was exchanging things in Penneys one day. As I wasn’t handing over actual money for it, it seemed like the perfect time to try it! I’m a bit late to the party, but, here’s the lowdown on what I thought of the best/worst tan of 2018.
My very first impression was that I liked the packaging, although it’s basic, a black bottle will always fit in well on my tanning shelf. I went for the Ultra Dark Mousse, of course! There was no strong, nasty smell which is always a plus! It applied easily and blended well, like a dream actually. It dried pretty quickly, but not so fast that it was hard to work with. The guide colour was fab, so it gave me high hopes!
The Next Day:
Before I had even rinsed it off, I was somehow paler? Don’t get me wrong, it was a nice natural colour but in no way was it ultra dark. So, I decided to throw on another layer and marinate in that. It was then I got what I wanted! The colour was gorgeous, there was no orange tint to it, it was even and all round fab. It wore off quite nicely too, I decided to not keep it moisturised like I usually would and it stayed nice enough for around three to four days. Bar the hands, which are always the first to go downhill!
Overall, I actually really liked it. But I don’t think I liked it enough to spend €25ish on it again. If I’m spending that on a tan, I think Bellamianta Ultra Dark would have to be the one for me.
