Liz Earle is a superstar brand in the UK since the mid 90′s known for their natural based philosophy of skin care. You may of heard of their popular Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, a thick and creamy cleanser used in conjunction with their muslin cloths to gently remove all traces of dirt and oil. While I fully expected to like the cleanser, I didn’t know I would come across the very best self tanner I’ve ever used.
First let me note that I’ve yet to review a self tanning product, though I’ve tried so many; drugstore brands, department store brands, and everything in between. Being on the fair side like I am, every single streak (even minor) tells the tale of self-tanning, and most products aren’t sophisticated enough to produce the perfect shade of tan with an even appearance we all desire.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that this self-tanner is perfect in every way.
The light scent is one of a lotion you’d come across at a spa, clean and botanical that slowly fades away as it dries leaving behind no scent at all rendering the tanning scent completely untraceable. Although I tend to favor the predictability of application that a lotion provides, this spray is easily applied and blended and invisibly joins together around knees, ankles and wrists for no streaking at all. None. Zip. Nada. You simply can’t tell where the product begins and ends on your body.
Using before bed isn’t a problem either since it dries so quickly and doesn’t leave any trace of color behind on sheets or clothing.
Just using a few sprays on each section of your body every other day is enough for noticeable and very natural color without a hint of orange, ideal for even the fairest of gals who tend to turn orange with traditional tanners. 4.2 oz should last me from now through the summer, so the $31 plus shipping goes a long way. Perhaps going in with a few friends to split shipping might be a good option. Liz Earle also offers full refunds when ordered through her site, so give it a try and let me know what you think.
