So in lieu of a one-way ticket to Barbados, we’re turning to a trusty fake tan to give our depressingly pasty limbs a glow-up.
In case you hadn’t noticed, winter is well and truly upon us and along with rosé wine and bikinis, we’re waving goodbye to our golden summer glow.
If you’re seeking a post-summer glow without a tango hue and biscuit scent and don’t have the time or inclination for trial and (orange) error, we’ve got the perfect solution in the form of Ireland’s best-selling tan, which just landed in the UK and is already amassing incredible reviews on Instagram.
Bare by Vogue Williams (yes, Mrs Spencer Matthews from arguably the best reality TV show on air right now) has made its way over the pond just in time for the sunless season.
The tanning range is enriched with super peptides which promise to help smooth, plump, firm and improve skin elasticity. The formulas are enriched with lots of deliciously natural ingredients like goji berry, oatmeal, chamomile, pomegranate and grapefruit which help to promote natural skin health and the ultimate glow.
There’s three formulas to choose from: Foam, Lotion and Instant, and each one is available in either Medium, Dark or Ultra Dark.
When we had a scout on Instagram, we found an array of overwhelmingly positive reviews, with plenty of beauty buffs and industry experts hailing it their new favourite fake tan.
“Without a doubt my new fave tan! I use the Ultra Dark Lotion the colour is fabbbb it didn’t flare up or irritate my eczema which is always a huge deal breaker for me”, wrote Megan O’Connor.
“I am SUPER IMPRESSED!!,” preached Susie Dwyer. “The Instant tan by Bare By Vogue and I am in LOVE!! It glides on beautifully and smells so good. I used only the tiniest little bit and it went so far. This is DEFINITELY my new favourite”
Meanwhile Christina Duffy dubbed it as good as a natural tan, writing: “Got so many compliments on my tan last week everyone thought it was still my greece tan!! Obsessed! Dark comes of easy not drying. Doesn’t stick to any dry patches. Hardly gets on your sheets at all 10/10.”
