BlogStar entry: streaky shame: combating the fake tan faux pas

Competition: beautyheaven’s BlogStar promotion

She glances furtively through her oversized sunglasses at the other shoppers while her sock clad feet hurry down the aisle. She sweats profusely underneath her long sleeved shirt and the other shoppers stare bemusedly at this crazy woman who looks like a snow bunny in midsummer heat. Her old jeans make a swoosh noise as she desperately scans the shelves for something – anything – to combat the intensity of her shame.  All the while cursing the magazine that featured a spread of a radiantly bronzed and bikini-clad Giselle, which possessed her to commit the previous night’s mistake.  After the last time it happened, she swore she would never do it again.  Underneath her clothes she bears the telltale orange palms and the streaks reminiscent of the long extinct Tasmanian tiger. Yep, you guessed it – she’s another victim of the fake tan epidemic.

We’ve seen this girl before. Heck! Most of us have been this girl before!  In an effort to attain that sun-kissed radiance of the celebrities, women have gone to extraordinary lengths – and some have suffered all the more for it.  We live in a society where bronzed equals beautiful. What makes it unfair is that we know the dangers of a natural tan and have to resort to other options to achieve a look that is only natural on a Zulu tribesman. However more often than not it’s easier to look like a jaundiced patient rather than like Eva Mendes back from her Hawaiian holiday. But do not despair, for I have found the veritable holy grail of all tanning products.

Ella Bache has long been a benchmark when it comes to quality beauty products and services and their Great Tan Without Sun is no exception.  This is the first product I’ve tried (and believe me when I say I’m a scarred veteran) without even a tinge of orange!  Its fake tanning heaven – easy to apply, fast developing and tinted to avoid tiger streaks.  The new formula provides moisturizer – admittedly not a new concept but a very welcome bonus!  Regardless of your tanning ritual habits, whether you’re a before bed fake-tanner or a morning glory fake-tanner, Great Tan Without Sun will have you streak free and glowing in less than 3 hours!

Although Ella Bache’s Great Tan Without Sun is more expensive than a lot of the supermarket brands, you really do get what you pay for. It’s kind of like buying a car, or finding your soul mate.  Have you ever heard your mum say that you’re going to have to kiss a lot of frogs before find your prince? Well the prince (nay, king!) of fake tan is here – and it is without a doubt Ella Bache’s Great Tan Without Sun.  Long live the king!
