I am sure most of you have heard about the Bellamianta Rapid Mousse as it is all over the beauty world recently. I am a little bit late to the game with this one but I gave in and decided to try it out, so here is how I got on.
As you can see above the promises this tan claims are :
- Dries in 60 Seconds
- develops in 2-4+ hrs
- Golden Olive tone
- Ready to wear colour
- Streak free / Easy to use
- Transfer & Water resistant
- Even Wear off
Personally from using this tan for around 3 weeks now I cant agree with all of these claims but I can agree with some, The tan does dry quickly but I wouldn’t say 60 seconds quickly however it doesn’t leave that sticky feeling after application. This does develop in 2+ hours for sure, immediately after application it gives a colour and keeps developing throughout the day/night. The tan does have a beautiful golden olive tone compared to the usual orangey tone self tan gives. I wouldn’t agree it is streak free however I have read this tan works very well with the Bellamianta mitt which I have not purchased yet. The tan isn’t completely water resistant or transfer free as it does wear off when you wash your hands but it doesn’t completely come off. It also transfers onto clothes when sweating etc (which most tans will). Lastly I would agree this tan has a very even wear off which is something I have been missing in my tans for a long time.
In the pictures below you can see the before and after application of the tan. In the before picture I had used the tan previously and you can see on my feet it is a little bit patchy from trying to scrub the tan off, the only problem I had with this tan was the removal. It is very hard to get off but that could be down to my exfoliator, it takes a good bit of elbow grease to remove it. I left my tan on overnight for 6+ hours because I like my tan dark, For a light tan you leave it on for 2 hours, 4 hours for a medium tan and 6+ for a dark tan.
Other than what I mentioned above about the removal of the tan,which again could be down to a low quality exfoliating product I am completely smitten with this product. I love the even application and the colour of the tan once washed off the following morning, this tan would last me 3+ days in between showers. This product retails at €24.99 but 100% worth it in my opinion obviously if its within your budget.
Have you tried this tan ? Let me know your thoughts below 🙂
