Rumour has it when my legs came out of the trousers I’ve been wearing over the very cold winter in Cape Town and saw sunshine for the first time in a while the sun decided to run away for a while, only to return last week.
This predicament can easily be avoided, with no added harm to your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays which have been so commercialised that people are either really petrified of them (like me, who generally avoids the sun) – good excuse, I’m British! OR have just given up on trying to protect themselves from the dangers and have a very meh approach to skincare and the sun – like TANNING MOM!
A few weeks ago at Cindy Nell’s Pamper Party at Langaro in Camps Bay, I was formally introduced to Caribbean Tan. I have heard about the wonders of Caribbean Tan from a few of the ladies in my family who are crazy about false tans, and have been for years. As a general rule, I’ve avoided them. I’m okay with being pale. In fact, I prefer it to being sunburnt and/or orange.
Caribbean Tan though on the other hand, does not burn you or make you orange. All it does is give the skin a good healthy glow, which lasts for up to two weeks. I was recommended due to my dislike of previous fake tan applications to try the Tanning Mousse which is a Gradual Colour in shade A, which retails at Dischem and selected pharmacies for R84.95, that the mousse will be an easier application with limited streaking.
I won’t bother explaining the process of applying it, as its as simple as exfoliating, getting clean, putting some cream on and voila, a tan develops over time.
Really not rocket science. Really simple.
They told the truth – it worked! I managed to attend a family function wearing a dress last weekend and I didn’t blind the people walking by.
I am not sure if my cynical approach to fake tans in general have been converted but for special functions and when I sometimes feel like a little bit more of colour is needed to wash away my pale limbs and body, I will definitely turn to Caribbean Tan over any over brand I’ve tried previously.
Within the Caribbean Tan Range, they have various other products which may excite the Tanning lovers interests and they retail as follows:
Tan in a Can – Instant/Gradual Colour – R84.95
Tanning Spritzer – Instant Colour – R84.95
Tanning Mousse – Gradual Colour (The one I have and spoke about above) – R84.95
Wipes – R44.96
They have Pre-Tan products of Body Exfolia for R44.95
and Tan Extender products of Moisturising Shimmer Cream for R44.95 and Intense Body Butter for R44.95.
I would certainly buy this product again, especially as a head start before a beach holiday… it really is the best tan I’ve used, ever.
