Review: Tea Tan Glow

spray on tanner
 Beautisol Tea Tan Glow, instant tan.  It seems like everyone everywhere wants a tan this summer, but if you do even a simple internet search, you'd know that it really isn't that healthy to even lay out in the sun for a few hours because of skin cancer. Not only that, but you have all those wrinkles to worry about. I mean you don't want to have to be using something like Lancome's anti-wrinkle cream before you're even out of school. That's why I was excited about Beautisol's Tea Tan Glow, is actually a body bronzer and being DHA free is not bad for your skin at all.

The first thing I noticed about this spray on tan, is the smell. I've tried a few self tanners before, like Jergens Natural Glow Express, and although they don't smell "bad" they do have a distinctive self tanning oder. With Tea Tan Glow though, it didn't have this at all. It actually smelled like the tea extract that its made of. Since I'm not a big tea person, I couldn't tell you exactly what kind of tea it is, but I do know its a pleasant smell. 

Self tanner

Here's what the spray looks like. I was surprised at how dark it was, but it actually went on my skin really well and just gave me a slight boost in color, nothing unnatural looking. To have more extreme results though you can just reapply after the first coat dries. The foam does tend to leave hands a little dark but you can always wear gloves or wash it off quickly after applying.

The major concern I had when first trying Tea Tan Glow is that it would wash off extremely easily. It says not to wear it if you're going to be sweating a lot or out in the rain, so I assumed this self tanner came of with just a few drops of water. They are exaggerating though because it did take a little bit of scrubbing to get it off.

Overall I really like Beautisol Tea Tan Glow. If you're looking for a product to make you a few shades darker, its a great alternative to the traditional lotions, it doesn't leave streaks or have an odd oder like the lotions do. It also isn't as washable as they say, so there shouldn't be any worries about it lasting all day.
