First up, let's talk about the developing tanners. Skinny Tan sent me two different kinds to test: Their Seven Day Tanner and Skinny Legs Tanner. The Seven Day Tanner is in a squeeze tube bottle and it results in a very natural, even, golden tan. Now just a warning, when you first apply this with the mitt, it is going to look all kinds of streaky. However, when you wash it off in 5 hours time, it leaves a beautiful, even coloured tan behind. Secondly, Skinny Legs is a spray tan that comes in an aerosol can. The colouring shocked me at first, as where the Seven Day Tanner is very bronze, Skinny Legs is very red. The first day when I applied it, my boyfriend asked me if my legs were sunburned :/ However, the next day the redness in the tan had vanished and it left a very dark tan on my legs. Skinny legs lasted a long time but the colour match was just not suited to my skin tone.

Secondly I was sent two other tanning products from Skinny Tan which are the Gradual Tanner and the 24 Hour Bronzer. The Gradual Tanner is actually the only product I wasn't as impressed with because the tan didn't develop as evenly as the other tans in the range. However, it is a good option to top up a tan that is fading. The 24 Hour Bronzer is an instant bronzing body cream. This crea, applies best when used section by section, as once it dries if you go over it again it tends to make your tan streaky. Once you've figured out the application, it is a good instant bronzer.

Skinny Tan also sent me these Tanning Mitts, one regular sized and one mini one. The mini one was super useful for tanning my face and getting to those hard to reach areas such as behind my ears. The mitts completely avoid getting any of the tanner onto your hands.
Overall I have been happy with the results I found using the Skinny Tan range. The product I would repurchase is the Seven Day Tanner, which I really enjoyed.
