Iconic Bronze Luxury Tanning Mousse

When I went to the fabulous Blogger Bash Galway event run by the gorgeous Ciara from @Mummys_make_up and Erika from @sassylifesecretsbyerika we got a lovely bag filled with #gifted products from PRs. One of the products was from Iconic Bronze and I couldn't have been more thrilled. I have wanted to try out this tan since it launched but always had too many in my collection to justify buying another bottle of tan (I wish I was this strong willed when it came to the rest of my beauty collection­čÖł).

We were #gifted a small travel/sample sized version of the Iconic Bronze Luxury Tanning Mousse along with their Iconic Bronze Luxury Tanning Mitt. The mitt is lovely to use, I haven't used another velvet mitt so I can't compare it to anything else other than the basic non velvet mitts that I've always used. I thought the mitt would absorb a lot of product but it didn't seem to at all which is fab! It's super soft and very easy to use. It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts and if it's worth the €7.99 price tag. Personally I go through tanning mitts quite quickly so to spend almost double what I would usually spend on one, I would want to be getting at least double the use and longevity from it. So far though I'm very happy with it.

Onto the actual tan itself. I was given the shade 'medium' which at first I was apprehensive about as I usually go for the darkest of dark when it comes to tan. When I fist applied it, it reminded me a lot of how Sally Hansen tan applies, almost like body makeup. But it's actually just got really great coverage which is why I found it a little thicker than other tans. It actually applied like a dream, as it's instant you can properly blend it so that you don't end up with patches or streaks etc. Initially I was really happy with how it turned out. After a few hours I noticed that it really did darken up, which I was only delighted about!! It still doesn't go very dark but as you can see from the before and after shot below, it's pretty dark.

So how did it last? It lasted well, I ended up with a few patches under my arm but to be completely honest, I was out drinking for the day so I think I was just leaning on tables etc and the tan lifted before it really set because the rest of me was perfect. It lasted for about 4/5 days before it started to fade. I wasn't too difficult to remove, about three showers and a little bit of scrubbing! I didn't use any particular tan remover or anything just my normal shower scrub.

Overall I enjoyed using it and will be bringing it on holidays with me and would probably pick up the darker shade the next time I run out of tan. It costs €13.99 and can be bought on their website which I will link HERE and you can also pick it up in Penneys/Primark!
