The last time I mentioned a tanning product on BBB was around 18 months ago, when St Tropez’s Gradual Shower Tan caught my eye. Long gone are the days I used to apply fake tan regularly. Once upon a time it was a weekly occurrence. I even got Mum or Dad to slap it all over my back 24 hours before I hit the town. I never was quite sure how even the application was! Nowadays I’m a glass of wine and meal out kinda of girl, clubbing is a lifetime (or so it seems) away. Now favouring jeans instead of mini skirts, my white bits are kept under wraps most of the time.
The actual product is encased in Princess packaging, a shiny jar with shiny lid. I’m not easily swayed by blingy packaging and wouldn’t normally purchase something quite this sparkly. I’m all about the Aesop minimalistic look, however it’s what’s inside that counts and if it really works.
The tan applied fairly evenly and I was left with a natural Riviera glow instead of the Essex ‘You’ve Been Tangoed’ look I was dreading.
The idea behind Tannymaxx is to provide a ‘high class tan’ with the benefits of premium skincare. I found that the Diamond Bronzer did not provide enough hydration to my dry skin. The tan itself is fabulous though and if you are looking for something foolproof then this is certainly a great product to consider.
Tannymax Diamond is £32 for 190ml.
