A Fake Tan with Ellen Conlin Hair & Beauty of Glasgow
Each summer every one of our glossy magazines run articles about how to apply the perfect self tan. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been advised to exfoliate, moisturise and then apply – we know the drill!

What really makes the difference is the product. With so many different brands on the shelves, it can be a long and laborious process to find your ideal tan, from gels to sprays and “light” to “dark” which we all know can be anywhere on the spectrum. So let me introduce you to Nouvatan. (no uva tan!)

The NOUVATAN Self Tanning Mousse comes in a stylish black and white packaging, and a no-nonsense set of directions on the back. There’s a lot of product in there, and after doing my whole body there’s still enough for another 3 full applications. For application, you can use a mitt or plastic/latex gloves (I prefer gloves as I find mitts soak up too much product!).

I showered, exfoliated with a citrus sugar scrub, and moisturised with a light body lotion. I also applied some shea butter to my knees, elbows, wrists and ankles. Starting at my ankles all the way up to my face, it took me about 15 minutes to get it all over me and rubbed in. Then I applied a little extra on my shoulders and down my arms for definition. The great thing about mousse is that it sinks in and dries – you don’t have to stagger around the house all sticky and not touching things! I put my dressing gown on and there was almost no rub-off. There are four hours of developing time that you have to wait out, but it isn’t very inconveniencing.

The final result is an even, warm, natural-looking tan that gives you a healthy glow without masking your skin. I am a redhead with very fair skin and no freckles, so I chose the Light shade. I would describe the colour as “golden latte”. Light brown with a golden hue and no hint of the dreaded orange. The natural shade brings out your features – eyes look brighter and teeth whiter.

Overall, this tan is a real winner! Easy self-application with a professional finish. The result is definitely miles better than any gradual tanner I’ve used, which tend to be very yellowy in my experience. This wonderful product is available from www.theechshop.com for £16.50 and FREE UK Delivery which is a fantastic price for such a salon-quality finish.
