ModelCo Tan Gloss Shimmering Self Tan: our review

Friday, 27 January 2012

ModelCo Tan Gloss Shimmering Self TanThey say: Tan Gloss Shimmering Self-Tan is an ultra-luxe, 3-in-1 gel with self-tan, instant bronzer and luminous, superfine shimmer. The lightweight, glossy gel gives your skin instant luminosity and a long-lasting, deep, rich tan.

BeautySouthAfrica.com says: I’m not a real fan of home self-tan as the few experiences I have had resulted in an uneven, streaky and orange look which wasn’t quite what I had hoped for (to say the least). So when I was asked to review this product I was a little apprehensive.

When I first opened the tube of Tan Gloss Shimmering Self-Tan and saw how dark the cream was I got a little concerned that the final colour would be too dark for me, but on application the cream lightened and set my mind at ease. Also, when it first comes out of the tube it’s very shimmery, but once it is on your skin it evens out and there is a slight shimmer that catches the light. The shimmer washes off in the shower (although the tan doesn’t) so you don’t end up looking like Edward from Twilight.
The application process is easy to follow and not too time consuming. To my surprise the result was an even, streak-free, golden, sun-kissed look, with no orange stains on my hands either.

I would definitely recommend this product to those who prefer getting a healthy glow without having to spend time under harsh UV rays. I will be keeping a tube handy for those long winter months.

ModelCo Tan Gloss Shimmering Self-Tan, R190 for 100ml, is available at selected Edgars, Red Squares and Dis-Chem stores.

    not a tanner, original tan here, i really hope it does not streak because it hurts my eyes looking at people with orange uneven ugly tan jobs.

    I definately prefer self tan over lying in the sun for hours on end only to end up stiff, sore and blood red afterwards so this is something I would consider trying
