AD | The Secret to an Instant Glow!

Do you ever have those days where you completely forgot about an event or function that you are attending - an engagement party, drinks with friends or a hot date? Yes, yes I know, for some of us at the moment, we can only dream of being able to leave the house, but just think back. You’ve forgotten the event, which means you forgot to tan in preparation…I want to let you in on a brand new secret that is going to be a game changer for those days.

Bali Body has just launched their BRAND NEW Instant Tan that is going to make those forgetful days a thing of the past. I’ve been testing it out the last few weeks and I’m so excited that I can finally share it with you. 

So, what is the Instant Tan? It is a skin perfecting tanning spray that achieves that perfect smooth bronzed glow in an instant. Yes, straight away! It is a lightweight aerated spray designed to even skin tone, blur blemishes and cover imperfections, leaving your skin looking bronzed and airbrushed, and you feeling like the glorious queen you are! The formula contains Vitamin E for added hydration and is made with 100% natural DHA, and like all of Bali Body’s products it is vegan and cruelty free.

I’ve used this a few times now and it’s honestly amazing. It may be the simplest tanning product to use - you just shake the can well, hold about 15cm away from the skin and spray in long sweeping motions (imagine you are like your spray tanner, but with less awkward conversation). Once you’ve sprayed you can blend as needed in using the Body Blending Brush, which may be the softest brush I’ve ever felt. I am loving how easy it is to apply - I was, personally, worried that it would end up streaky or uneven, because I am definitely no tan pro, but it just works beautifully and it is forgiving enough that you can blend any mistakes you make with the brush. My FAVOURITE part, which I have never had in an instant tan before, is that it is transfer free. I can pop on that beautiful white dress and it doesn’t turn it into a bronze mess by the end of the day (I know you’ve been there…don’t lie!) I do really love that it’s a hydrating formula too, because as a dry skin girl, there’s nothing more infuriating than a tan clinging to dry patches OR making your skin dry like the Sahara desert. 

As for lasting power, it is a wash off tan, meaning it does rinse off when you jump in the shower. It removes really easily. I find an exfoliating glove, or even just a little bit of soap is enough to remove it completely. It’s basically that perfect tan for when you need something quick and easy to apply when you’re running late or forgot to tan. 

It would also be perfect for those times when your tan is starting to wear off, but you can’t quite be bothered to remove or re do it - just spray this on and you can go to your dinner without worrying if someone is going to notice the patch on your leg that’s starting to wear off.

I know, it’s a paid post and it sounds like I’m pushing it like it’s a paid post, but I can say whole heartedly that I am obsessed. It gives me everything I want from a tan - the bronze, airbrushed glow - without all the things I hate about tanning - waiting for it to develop, worrying that I’m going to be left with random patches that I missed. It’s an absolute game changer. 

The Instant Tan and Body Blending Brush are both available now from Bali Body. I cannot recommend jumping on and grabbing one today. It’ll be your summer essential, I can promise you that!
