Fashion and beauty blog for the more mature woman not ready to hang up the high heels yet.



Hi everyone
How was your bank holiday weekend? Time for the weather to pick up I think, just a few good days so far here in London.
I have got the summer wardrobe out, at the ready for the holiday to Scotland, but the way the forecast is going, I might just pack what I have left out for just in case it's cold, of the winter wardrobe.
I have some lovely dresses to wear, and milk bottle white legs!

I normally spray tan myself (with the aid of the other half) but on a visit to the mothers a couple of weeks ago, when we sit down for a gossip, share what's been going on in our lives, what we have been buying, what new make up were trying etc mother couldn't wait to tell me all about the new self tan she had bought, and showing off her tanned legs. And I have to say I was very impressed! So the next day I gave it a try for myself

First of course, anyone who has self tanned or had spray tan's will know the importance of exfoliating prior to this. Take a look at my post on exfoliating HERE  The cheapest exfoliator with fantastic results.
The tan is called PS Love My Glam Tan Mother found it in Primark at an amazing price of... Drum roll......... £2.50 !
Yes a whole 250 pennies. So you can imagine, I was a little dubious. "It must really smell bad," No it doesn't, "It must turn out really streaky, and mother just got lucky", No, it went on as smooth as a babies bum! And I only applied it with my hands, no tan mitt to borrow from mother when I asked, the reply I got was, what's one of those?

So here's the tube of tan

I used the light to medium, I don't like to over do it and look too orange or fake (same applies to spray tanning) And most importantly, a little moisturiser around the ankles and on the knee's

Here is a before shot of said milk bottle white legs

Another thing I meant to mention is that this cream has a good colour guide, so you can see just how it's going on and that you have covered well

Here is legs after

This pic was taken strait after the application, and when I showered at the end of the day, the colour stayed true.

I am so pleased with
 1) how easy this went on.
 2) how long it lasted. It still looked good 5-6 day's after.
 3)The Price

So I totally recommend you give it a go. I have since bought mother her Tanning Mitt, My inspirational beautiful mother, who still worries about tanning her legs at 84 years old!
Love you mum x

Have you found any great beauty bargains recently? Please share, I would love to hear from you

  1. Wow how impressive is that tan?! I tend to stick to Xen Tan though it is very expensive, but had read some good reviews on the Coco Brown range, which I thought I might try as a budget alternative? But now seeing this you may have convinced me the Primark tan is the way to go!!

  2. Coco Brown have fantastic reviews too. A member of the family uses it, and this is what mother intended on trying. Her primark store didn't have the Coco Brown, but did have the glam tan. Apparently the tan deepens if you re apply too

  3. That looks so impressive- I have gone from st tropez to vita liberata to st moritz and the current favourite is cocoabrown but this is even better value so well worth a try and an excuse for a trip to primark! As for your dear glam mum tanning her legs at 84 i want what she is having!!! X Lou

    1. It can be hard to come by. The mothers get's mine in Essex. I hope you find it, it's brilliant x
