Summer is officially over!

So seeing as we’re now officially into Autumn on Irish soil.. I figured what better to post about but the best false tan products out there on the market! Cause lets be honest ladies, we had zero summery weather and the week or two in the sun that some of us were lucky to avail of seems oh but a distant memory! 😦 But fear not! We need not keep the pasty white skin that was forced upon us, here are some of my top picks when it comes to bronzing up..x..

Sally Hansen – Instant airbrush legs:

This is an amazing instant tan, with a beautiful shimmering effect. It’s got great coverage as it’s actually make-up, but for legs! I’ve used it all over my body on numerous occasions, and it’s by far one of my favorites for a night out on the town. A reliable product, as used by Kim Kardashian herself!! 😉


St Tropez – Gradual Tanning Mousse:

A little bit more pricier, but if you’ve got the cash it’s well worth the investment! It comes in liquid and spray forms too but I’m personally more fond of the mousse as I find it seems to go on easier. It’s a gradual bronzing product, so it comes out looking really natural, and it is best applied daily. (I find after the morning shower is great!) Has been loved by many celebs over the years – a fantastic product! 🙂


St Moriz – Instant Self Tanning Mousse:

A cheaper alternative to St. Tropez, available in Penneys stores nationwide. It’s a relatively good product that goes on well enough as long as you give your skin a good bit of papering first – ie. exfoliator and moisturizer are a must! If your skin is in dire need of a bit of colour this product is actually great! It does what it says and has quickly become a huge success on the highstreet! 🙂


Rimmel – Instant Sun Shimmer:

Another reliable, cheap-as-chips product, that does exactly what it says on the packaging! Rimmels products have always been fab and this false tan has been a favorite of my friends and I since we first found out what “Fake Tan” was. It’s available everywhere – which is great, as you can always scribble it down the end of Mum’s shopping list before she heads off to Tescos or Dunnes! The only problem I have with this product is that it washes off waaaay too easily – like even in a light rain shower! Not the most ideal product for us gals here in Ireland! :-/


Xen Tan – Weekly Instant Self Tan:

Now this is only a recent discovery of mine, and it is a bit on the expensive, but I promise you the results are amazing! It’s hard enough to find in stores – I ordered some online – but after a friend of mine told me about it and already having known that it was a huge hit with the celebs worldwide – including the gorgeous Kate Middleton! 😉 I had to try it! Check out Natasha Tynan’s amazing post on Xen Fake Tan too!! Great work lady!!


Hope you are all enjoying my blog my lovelies!! xoxo

    Do you think I should shave my legs first?

  2. Wow, summer is over where you are already? Nice! I hate the heat, therefore I hate summer. 🙂 Where I live, we usually have what’s called “Indian Summer”–from August to October…Sucks, but oh well!

    I tried the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs a long time ago, and it didn’t work very well for me! My tan is fading already…maybe one of the other products will work better, I’ll have to try them sometime.

    • Hi jolly blogger!!! Thank you again for reading!! 😉 I wish I had the sun that you are having! Over here in Ireland it’s been raining non stop!! To be honest, St Tropez is still my favourite!! Sally Hansen is more lik make up!! Great if you want to cover up and bruises thou!! If you try any of the other products let me know what you make of them too!! Xoxo

  3. These products all look so lovely, and I particularly like the look of the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, sounds amazing! One of those things I always eye up but never buy, but I might have to make a sneaky purchase now. Great review – I kind of want to try all of these now!


    • Hi Sophie, thanks so much for following and for reading! 🙂 You should definitely try out Sally Hansen! It’s really like make up for legs! If you want to cover up any bruises or anything (I’m constantly running into things lol) it’s fab! Let me know how you get on! Cas..x..

  4. Do you really consider Summer over in Ireland? I know it’s been a crappier than usual Summer here in the U.K., but i like to think there’s still lots of time for some great weather.

    I was wondering, is the Sally Hansen Airbrushed a wash off or wear off product.

    And thanks for following my blog, Joie de Vivre!

    • Thanks for following mine too Ali!! 🙂
      It’s a wear off product! 🙂 I find as long as you moisturise really well you’ll get a few days out of it! It’s really got that ‘false tan smell’ though – and as with all fake tans, you will see some of it rub off on your clothes!!
      Summer really is over here!! To be honest it doesn’t feel like it ever began.. 😦 We’ve been having constant rain over here! Hope ye are having some bit of sunshine over in the UK!!
      Cas xoxo

    Just because our Irish summer sank doesn’t mean we can’t shine! Love this perk me up post from ATGR- check it out, love Just A Hair Thing x

  6. Have you tried Fake Bake Flawless? I use that and find that it doesn’t streak and gives a nice, natural looking color. I posted a review on it a while back on my blog!

  7. Hi there,
    I adore the St. Tropez self tan mousse- so super easy to apply and no orange tint in sight…

    Got to love that!
