In belief that the sun will shine once more we went to meet the ladies behind SiennaX to hear more about the range and yes we've got to give it to them they appear to have thought of all of our tanning needs! Firstly comes preparation which can be found in the form of a polishing body scrub. Tip 1: Exfoliation is key so girls ( and boys) exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
Next comes the application, SiennaX offer a gradual glowing self tan which comes in two shades and has an anti cellulite formula - say goodbye to that orange peel! We tried and we have to admit that unlike your average fake tan products SiennaX actually smells pretty nice too - nothing more tell-tale then the whiff of the fakey! The tan takes 6 - 8 hours to develop although we were advised to apply before bed, sleep, then wash in the morning to reveal your perfect summer glow.
OK so now for tips number 2 to 5....
Tip 2 - Make sure you wash your hands post application this will avoid streaks; Tip 3 - moisturise those problem areas before, after and during application ; Tip 4 - problems when it come to reaching the back? Ideally rope in the help of a boyfriend/flatmate/best mate but when else fails reach out for the cling film. OK this may sound a bit weird but it actually makes sense when you think about it: tear off a piece big enough to wrap around itself three times. Apply the tan to the film and rub across the back as though it where a towel! Voila - the perfectly tanned back - well maybe not perfect but at least its not milk bottle white; Tip 5 - You may want to wear loose fitting gloves/socks whilst sleeping to avoid nasty smudging!
The end result; you should wake looking and more importantly (according to the girls at SiennaX) feeling like a goddess! To prolong the tan use SiennaX radiance body balm to not only moisturise but add a touch of sparkle too because we all know a touch of sparkle never hurt anyone…apparently.
