Couldn’t the packaging look any more gorgeous? How luscious is that line of lime green out of a milk chocolate background!
One product which has caught my attention is the 'Bronzing Powder, for face and body in a spray can. I am inexplicably drawn to try this product, like I have been hypnotised to try it.
There’s nothing easier than a bronzing powder spray for the perfect tan!
In one quick and simple step, the powder mist delicately melts onto the skin for a perfect, natural and even tan. No need to rub! This ultra-fine powder dries instantly so you can get dressed straight away!
I am drawn to try it but I am absolutely petrified at the same time by it.
What if I go all oompah loompah from it?
At least if I could rub, I could buff it in if it sprays too dark.
Anyway, today I went to the shop again to test it on my skin, in the shop. Instructions explicitly said to spray at least 30 cm away from your skin (that's the equivalent of the length of 2 CDs put together, British imperial system fans). I tried to bear that in mind but nothing came out. And then I sprayed too close (you know a bit like you try to get some ketchup out of the bottle and then *splouf* your whole plate is filled with ketchup. I didn't even spray for long. One minute there was nothing, and the next, this appeared:
They have 2 colours: the light (shade 12) and the dark one (shade 14). I sprayed on the dark one. Can you imagine if my face ends up like that? I'd die with embarrassment. I am even more scared to try it now. The fact that I need to spray so far away (30cm seem to be such a long distance) makes me scared that I am going to get some on my clothes, hair, or the wall/environment/kids around it.
First impressions: I am more scared than ever and I am too much of a chicken to take the plunge to buy one. It smells ab-so-lu-te-ly lovely though. If you do decide to try it, have a go on a newspaper first, until you’re happy with how much product comes out and remember to keep your distance. I shall be on the look out on more reviews on this product before taking the plunge. For now I need reassurance.
