I've always had a love/hate relationship with instant tanning products. I love that instant tan allows you to change up your look quickly, without the hassle of tanning overnight. However, I've struggled to find an instant tanning product that wears well, looks natural and is water resistant...there is nothing worse than having rain spots on the back of your legs on a night out!
Boabella Boutique offered to send me Karora's 'Instant Tan Wash Off' to try and I was really excited to see how it fared against other instant tans I've tried. Boabella Boutique is a members members only online shop that is free to join and offers amazing discounts for members. Each deal is only available for a certain period of time and often, the discount is so good that a product sells out before the deal expires - if you see something that catches your eye, it's a good idea to buy it straight away!

Karora's 'Instant Tan' is by far the best of its type I've tried. When I first applied the tan, I felt a little apprehensive as it looked extremely dark. However, after working it into my skin, it blended out flawlessly, giving my skin a beautiful, golden appearance. It dries very quickly and doesn't feel sticky to the touch. I've also found that it's transfer resistant and fairly resistant to water - it stayed opaque when I splashed some water on my arm and only began to fade when I held my arm under the tap. It does have a faint herbal scent which is far more appealing than the digestive biscuit smell typical of a developing tan.
What I love about Karora's 'Instant Tan' is it has a perfecting effect on the skin, which makes it perfect to use on the legs. I've found it helps disguise bruises, veins and other imperfections and leaves a beautiful luminous look to the skin - I think it's going to become one of my must have products of the summer!
I would love to know your experiences with instant tans?
Lots of Love
