Why? Because, it was quick and easy to apply. It gave me a natural looking golden bronze colour that developed in one night. It dried instantly, I didn't have to rub the product in and it didn't have that nasty fake tan scent.
Please note, I'm not saying that being tanned is the way forward, but me being Meditteranean and generally quite tanned, it just makes me feel more comfortable when I have a golden glow to my skin. Some people favour paleness which looks exquisite, but sadly not on me.
Below is a photo of what I looked like after I used the face mist on my face and chest area overnight. You can see that it made a significant difference, look at my white shoulder. I actually look like I have tan lines from sunbathing.
After using the body mist self tan last night, I am now even and looking quite golden. Application was quick as the aerosol can makes it a breeze, it dried within about 5 seconds, so I was able to get dressed almost immediately unlike the Garnier summer body spray mist I usually use which takes AGES to dry.
However, I wouldn't recommend using it right before bed, as I did get subtle crease marks from my duvet which doesn't look pretty. I would suggest using it a couple of hours before going to sleep or during the day.
As with any fake tan, you absolutely HAVE to exfoliate your whole body and moisturise your knees and elbows to ensure a perfect finish.
Price of face mist - £7.50
Price of body mist - £10.99
Available in 2 choices; (fair - medium) and (medium - dark) skin tones, I purchased the medium - dark option as I wanted a dramatic change as opposed to a subtle one as I felt SUPER pale. I was given the fair - medium option for the body mist at a Garnier event but, I felt like it didn't do enough for me to consider it 'special'.
Will I repurchase? Yes, it does the job. I LOVE the application, it's SO quick and simple to apply. It's quite similar to the St Tropez bronzing spray self tan but not as expensive. I still like my Garnier gradual tanner, which I may use when I want moisture and a more subtle colour. On an extra note, I binned my St Moriz as I HATE the application of it, once I remove the cap the mousse goes everywhere and it just feels too messy.
