Fake Bake Body Polish

Anybody want to look like they've stepped out of TOWIE..? Just me then? Since I could give Casper a run for his money at times, I have to resort to the fake tanning. Now, it isn't easy. What with dry skin, pale as pale can be and little time, it's quite hard to make it look natural. That was until I found this as a time helper. We all know the importance of exfoliating before fake tanning etc but this body polish is specifically for us pale people. Hoorah!

Exfoliating removes all the dead skin cells and flaking which helps to prolong your tan. Your fake tan fades as your skin sheds. (don't worry this is normal for all you thinking you're not a snake!) If you get rid of the old cells first, the remaining ones won't wear off as quickly. Fake Bake says to start to apply Rough to Buff with your feet in circular motions working up your legs and body, make sure you pay attention to problem areas such as elbows and knees too! It is easier to use this in the shower or bath from personal experience.

After all this, make sure to moisturise, again paying attention to key areas and making sure the moisturiser has time to sink in properly before applying the fake tan. I'm sure you all know how to fake tan properly but just a heads up for my fellow pale friends, if you find you're streaking on a regular basis like I was previously then this may be the answer to your problems. 

I have actually seen it on a few websites but this one came in top trumps at £5.00, bargain! You can check it out here. Has anybody tried this and love it like me?

  1. Is this part of the range New Look were/are selling? I'd sort of written it off before trying it but I might give it a go! xx

  2. Yeah that's it! Fake bake is actually a really good brand, nothing to do with New Look but I don't think they sell it anymore? Not sure but have a look around :) xx
