Last week I was delighted to receive a bottle of the bPerfect Cosmetics 10 second tan as I had heard so much about it and I couldn't wait to try it for myself.
I first heard of the brand when I saw the founder, Brendan on Dragons Den and I was very impressed with his concept. I especially love that it is an Irish brand and I always love to support people who have vision and ambition like Brendan.
The first thing I did when I received the package was smell the tan and I was so pleasantly surprised. It smelled like coconut and almost reminded me of sun cream on holidays which is one of my favourite smells. It was so refreshing to smell a tan that didn't smell like stale biscuits so I was very excited to try it on the skin. After applying the tan and sleeping in it, I did notice a slight "tan" smell in the morning but nothing compared to the usual gross stench of other tans that I have used.
The tan itself goes on like a dream, particularly if you use the specialised bPerfect velvet mitt. The before and after pictures below were taken directly before application and immediately after so the initial colour was already beautiful. The pictures of myself were taken the next day after showering and the colour still looked incredible.
I have quite dry skin at the moment so throughout the day I did notice it gathering a little around the dry areas but that evening I moisturised my skin and it all completely evened out again.
I was going to write my review straight away as I was so in love with the initial application of the tan but I wanted to wait a week and judge the "wear off" before I gave an honest review.
Truthfully I didn't even notice the wear off, I showered as normal and it just gradually faded, I didn't even have to scrub at the end of the week like I usually do and my skin was ready for an entirely new application again.
There are two colours in the tan, Natural Coconut - which is the lighter one and Dark Watermelon which is a darker colour.
For me, I love the lighter one as you can build colour if you want to be a little darker. I have seen the Dark Watermelon on other people though and its fab too!
If you would like to try the bPerfect t10 second tan for yourself you can purchase directly from their website which is bperfectcosmetics.com or you can find a list of stockists on their to find your nearest one!
I definitely recommend it due to my own personal experience but I would be really interested to hear what you think when you give it a go.
