Tanning while Showering? Multitasking at it’s best – but does it work? NKD SKN is here to prove it does!
If you’ve been reading The Fashionista Observer for a while you will know that although I LOVE my fake tan, like never without it, I do venture away from the bottle on the run up to my summer holidays. As I am quite sallow I do love to get a natural tan and embrace that summer glow.
However – this summer wasn’t filled with much tanning as our holidays were slightly dampened with a bit of rain (yes in spain!!) and a lot of over cast days – So days at the bar definitely took over from days at the pool and the beach.
While the weather sucked, I did have a fabulously relaxing time – but came home a lot less tanned than years before. So some fake tan was definitely needed.
Before I popped off on holidays I heard about the NKD SKN Pre Shower Tan, and the girls were sweet enough to even send me out a bottle to show. As it was before my holidays I didn’t get a chance to try it out, and while on holidays the girls at NKD SKN actually sent me out a second bottle!
As you will know from my blog, I adore Vita Liberata, and NKD SKN is one of my favourites as well. That being said I was very hesitant to try this tan.
I have previously tried the St Tropez InShower Tan, buying into the hype and ordering it online on the first day of sale (Mistake number 1!). The St Tropez requires you to apply while in the shower to damp skin and lather like a shower gel. I had a lot of promise but it failed so miserably. I stood there like a naked statue for 3 minutes to end up as pale as usual!
Given my experience – I didn’t put all of my hope in the Pre Shower Tan – I mean who would think a 10 minute moisturise with this baby would give a glowing tan – well not me and i was WRONG!
Post my rainy holidays, I thought I would give it a go and try to top up my summer glow.
The concept is as simple as rubbing in the cream and washing off 10 minutes later – easy peasy!
The cream is quite thick, and takes a lil bit to rub in all the way. Once rubbed in you can do as you please and prep pre shower. I use these 10 minutes to throw some oil in my hair and give myself a pre – shower hair mask.
Once ready to wash off, you can definitely feel the cream coming off the skin, and it does rinse off just ever so slightly green.
Wait 6 – 8 hours and you will be perfectly golden. I’ve use it both in the morning and before bed and you can seriously see the difference. I could go as far as saying it gives a glow similar to a moose tan. There is definitely a change in colour to the skin, and I find it wears incredibly well.
I have disgustingly dry skin, especially in the summer, so tan can get patchy very quickly – but I have gotten 5 days patch free with the NKD SKN Pre Shower Tan – and thats pretty unheard off with me.
If you are like me and love a good tan, or are on the look out for something new, I cannot recommend the NKD SKN more!
Available online for €19 and I truly think that is seriously under priced! It’s worth so much more! Make sure to get your hands on this asap! It is too good to not try for yourself – you will be amazed at how incredible the glow is, and fall in love with the quick tanning routine and no – fake tan smell!
Let me know if you pick up this beauty – can’t wait to hear all of your thoughts!
