Bellamianta Luxury Tanning.

Even though I have an Olive complexion sometimes having that nice glow to the skin can be helpful to look healthy, even if it's dull outside - who cares! I've tried many brands over the years with tanning. Instant wash off, long lasting, no smell, no streaks - you name it. I'm no pro at tanning and even felt maybe I should recruit a professional tanner to come and apply my tan on for me to look flawless but it'll defeat the point lol!

About Bellamianta Luxury Tanning

Bellamianta are a new brand from Ireland. Their brand aims to deliver products within their range that have clean ingredients, making it free from: Parabens, Harsh Chemicals, Genetically modified ingredients (GMO’s), Parfume, Alcohol, Animal derivatives, Petrochemicals, Sulphates & Silicones. Giving a clean, nutritious luxury tanning products. The formula has built in nourishment, hydration and extremely fast drying allowing a streak free tan. The tans ultra-smart hydration system makes sure the tan drives in 60 seconds...The light formula works to continuously hydrate the skin ensuring the tan wears off evenly with no snakeskin effect!!!

I was sent a beautiful set of products from Bellamianta (thank you once again). Besides the fact they said that there's no snakeskin effect as the tan wears off, it was that there's not meant to be any of that dreaded self tanning biscuit smell *gags* that puts me off tremendously with self tans - so when I saw a candle included and told that their tan smells so good they made a candle - when I smelt the candle - give me more!!! Made me look forward to trying the tan even more.

Bellamianta Self Tanning Lotion.
As it's fast drying it makes the tans ready to wear as they'll develop in 2 - 4 hours. The darker you want the shade, the longer you keep it on and they'll be no transfer on clothes. "The natural ingredients work with the skin's natural melanin to provide a perfectly natural, golden tone every time which becomes water resistant and will last up to 7 days."

Bellamianta Rapid Mousse.
The tan has a 60 second fast dry system, the tans are ready to wear and will develop into a light tan after 2hrs, medium tan after 3 hrs and a dark tan after 4hrs+ with no transfer onto clothes. It gives an golden olive tone which is perfect for me as I have yellow undertones, olive skin already so having something that will not give a tangoed appearance is a must. 

Directions: Wax or shave 24hrs before tanning. Apply to clean exfoliated skin, no deodorant, makeup or perfume. Polished nails will prevent staining (or wipe with remover after application). Using your luxury Bellamianta Luxury Tanning Mitt, apply formula in circular motion starting from the legs upwards.Never apply product directly to the hands or feet as it will be to dark, use the residue on the mitt at the end.

My Experience of Bellamianta Luxury Tanning

I chose to use this on my legs first, soaked in the bath the night before, exfoliated, using the  Bellamianta Exfoliating Mitt (but I do use a Turkish spa mitt once a week and a salux towel daily) & shaved to make sure that my skin was ready for the tanning next morning. The tan so surprisingly smells pleasing and shockingly does not dry to a biscuit scent. It dried so quickly on the skin as described it made it easy to apply the tan which I did in circular motions and buffed it into the skin. The first time I left it on for I believe just about 2 hours and it gave me a nice sunkissed appearance..as seen below.
The second time I decided to go further and leave it on for 4 hours and this was done on the day before xmas eve (I apologise no photos, you know Christmas - busy). Come Christmas Day when I mentioned the tan, family members were shocked (I was more shocked they thought I could gain such a colour in December) to find that it was a fake tan and said it shows how good it looked because it wasn't orange. Now what made me love it even more was there actually wasn't any snake skin effect, it fades so naturally it's insane - one of those 'try and see for yourself' products. I've tried others that shade and make me itch cos it dries out the skin - not the case with this, I tanned twice within one month of using it I was loving the results and appearance that much. I can testify there's no transfer because I have white sheets and they've stayed white - phew.
