For those of you that follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I attended the 1st Birthday of Lusso Tan in Belfast’s fabulous AM:PM Bar & Restaurant. It was a fabulous evening that they put on for all of us bloggers and their effort and dedication is surely reflected in their attention to their products. I was generously gifted the tan a few weeks ago alongside the mitt and I haven’t had it off me since. At the event I was gifted with the rest of the collection and I would love to share my thoughts on the products with you.
Lusso Tan isn’t just another tanning product but instead is a 3 Step Ritual to provide you with a long lasting, beautiful, glowing tan. There is more to just covering yourself in a tan lotion, you wouldn’t apply all your makeup for a night out without cleasning, moisturising and priming, would you? Well, maybe you would but you shouldn’t if you want it to last longer and your tan is no different.
With many products under Lusso Tan’s belt it an be easy to get overwhelmed but when you follow the 3 Step Ritual then you’ll be sure to come out with a professional looking tan.
STEP ONE – PREP
Using the Primer Spray will enrich any tan while protecting and plumping the skin. Before you tan spray a little over the face and body and then pat dry to remove excess. The spray not only rebalances the skin’s pH level creating an optimum environment for tanning but Organic Witch Hazel refreshes and locks in moisture so your skin doesn’t dry out.
I love this spray and think it’s an amazing addition to my tanning regime and have truly noticed a difference in the longevity of my tan especially on my chest area as I can never get tan to stay even.
STEP TWO – TAN
Fake it, don’t bake it. Get your Summer Tan from the tube and save your skin! With three shades to choose from you are sure to get something to suit your preference. That being said this lotion is extremely buildable and I am currently wearing the Medium, but easily built up layers to create a darker colour similar to that of the Dark Lotion.
I applied this tan using the Flawless Tanning Mitt which is the softest mitt I think I’ve ever touched and a creates streak free application each and every time. It dries so fast that you can get dressed almost straight away, which is perfect for me considering I tend to leave everything to the last minute and am in a permanent rush. As a tan that contains Vitamins A & E and Aloe Vera your skin is sure to remain soft and hydrated.
STEP THREE – BOOST
Why stop now, you’ve come this far? Lusso Tan offers a Finishing Touch range that takes your tan from great to amazing. The Skin Perfector covers imperfections than tan just can’t cover. I have used this product over my surgery scars on my ankle that tan just glides over and on bruises on my leg from God knows what and it is like a filter has been put over my skin. I like to smooth it onto the area and blend it out with my finger but you could use the Mitt for this too.
Also in the Finishing Touch range comes the Shimmer Powder which might randomly be my favourite item from the collection. Of course it is, I am highlighter mad. This pot of gold is absolutely stunning on the shoulders and along the collar bones to create that sexy, golden glow as if you just stepped off the beach. I like to use mine down the shins to create that ‘Yes, I shaved my legs’ look. Using a kabuki brush dust over anywhere you want and now you’ll have the most perfect, gorgeous, long wearing tan.
Lusso Tan have a variety of tans as well as the Tanning Lotion including a Tinted Gradual Bronze Tan and a wash off Instant Tan. I haven’t tried these yet but look forward to adding to my collection!
