I get a lot of stuff I’m quite indifferent about through my letter box, but thought I’d share this genius little thing from Melvita that I got today. It’s an iced biscuit with a note to remind you that ProSun doesn’t have that familiar ‘biscuity’ self tan smell and it really made me smile. A lot of self-tans have got rid of the smell quite well, but not all, and there is usually something underlying the fragrance over the top.
Actually, Melvita ProSun is my absolute favourite self tanner.. I rarely use anything else. It’s quite gentle, so you won’t be going deep bronze with this, but if you like your self tan very natural looking and light, then it’s for you. It’s the best I know for non-streaking, and also for making your post-holiday tan look like it’s lasting for nearly ever because it is so natural looking. It doesn’t have the baking smell because it uses Erythrulose (derived from cane sugar) rather than DHA (sometimes also derived from sugar or beet) to give a tan look; but it’s also got safflower, coconut and sunflower oils so it really moisturises at the same time, unlike DHA based tans that can be quite drying. It does have a scent; it’s more vanilla-ish than anything.
Last year it was nigh on impossible to get hold of because there was such run on it – I tried three times at the shop last summer in Covent Garden but it was always sold out. So, I’d stock up if you’re planning to try it. It’s £20 HERE.
