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.
My Experience of Bellamianta Luxury TanningI 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.
