Laurens Way 1 Hour Tan | Before & After

Wednesday, 7 May 2014





Hello Ladies! I hope your all having a fabulous week and aren't too sad to be back at work after a long weekend! If your anything like me and always leave things like tanning for a night out to the last minute, I have a feeling that the product I'm going to be talking about today may just be perfect for you. 

The Laurens Way Rapid Self Tan* is designed to develop in an hour, so if you decide on a spontaneous night out and want to tan it up, you've got it covered. I opted for the spray formula as recently I've found that these are much easier to apply than the mousse formula that I used to use, but I have to say that I found this one slightly tricker to apply than my usual Fake Bake tan. Obviously there is a difference in the price between the Fake Bake and Laurens Way so it may be down to that or it may just be the Laurens Way formula, as I've never tried anything from the brand before. I just found the formula to be a lot drier than other brands so I had to work a bit more to make sure that there were no streaks. However, that aside, this really is a great tan. 

As you can see from the pictures above, I am ghostly pale. I never get a natural tan as my skin just burns then peels back to pale, none of that 'it'll turn into tan' nonsense for me! So I always have to fake it if I want a golden glow, which I most definitely do. Straight after applying this, it gave me a faint tan, but after an hour it had developed into a natural looking golden brown - amazing after such a short period of time! You could just leave it for an hour then your good to go, but I decided to leave it for 3 hours then wash it off (I'm way too clumsy to trust myself not to spill anything on my tan!). After I'd washed it off, it left me with a natural looking faint tan which was just what I was looking for. As I'm so pale I only applied one coat of this, but you can definitely achieve a darker tan if you so desire by just applying more. 

Overall, I'm really impressed by this tan. I honestly did't expect it to develop in such a short amount of time, but it lived up to its claims and it will definitely come in handy for those unplanned nights out!

  3. I do love the shade it has gone. My only fear with fake tan is ending up looking like an Oompa Loompa x

  5. That looks lovely, although I'm pretty scared about trying a spray as I I'd probably mess it up and it would look really uneven and unnatural :) xx
