The easy tan: NKD Skin Pre-Shower Tan

With the summer months here, I’m determined to get my tan on. I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to fake tanning, and the thought of jumping right in scares me a bit. So, when I saw this NKD Skin Pre-Shower Tan, I thought it would be the perfect easy tan product to ease me in..

How does the NKD Skin Pre-Shower Tan work?

The idea of this gradual tan is 10 minutes before you shower you apply it all over, leaving it to soak in. Once the 10 minutes are up, hop in the shower and wash the product off. Within 4-8 hours the tan will have developed. Keep using before showering to gradually build up the colour!

How did it work?

Sceptical of it, at first I just applied it on my legs to avoid any disasters. The cream is actually of a really thick consistency and will take a while to rub in. It is clear which I know some people can be put off by, but I didn’t find any problems with. After waiting 10 minutes and showering, I could see the next day my legs did a hint of colour to them. Nothing too drastic, but a subtle glow – something I can definitely imagine being great as it’s built up over time. The product does have a slight scent when applied, and I could still smell the classic fake tan scent that night, but this is something that doesn’t really bother me.

Overall, I think this is a really great product, especially for people like me that are a bit scared of going for the full-on tan straight away! The tube cost me £9.99, but I’m not sure how long this would last. I think it would depend on this as to whether I would repurchase again.

What products do you recommend for a tanning newbie like me?

Since writing this post, I’ve given a few more tanning products a try. See some of my favourites here and here.
