Wow Brown Ready to Glo Self Tanning Liquid in Dark Review

Dia daoibh!


Today I'm going to review Wow Brown's latest edition 'Ready to Glo' in the shade Dark. Irish ladies Frances Brennan and Donna Ledwidge developed this liquid tanning formula for those who "want the darkest shade of WOW" (light/medium & medium/dark shades also available). As I mentioned, it's a liquid; don't worry it has very handy spray nozzle so you don't have to worry about knocking the bottle over or faffing around with pouring!

The application process is a breeze. Simply spray onto a tanning mitt and apply all over your body in circular movements. What I noticed immediately about it was it's smell. Not your typical tanning smell, on first whiff it's a fresh almost sweet perfume! Great! It does however being to transform into your typical tan smell whilst developing but after showering the smell is almost undetectable!


I applied one light layer (the word "dark" scared me!) The liquid has an instant colour - so much so that you can apply it and you look golden instantly and can head straight out the door if needs be. Application is super fast, probably the fastest I've ever come across. It dries instantly and is not sticky.... at all, so I was able to go about my business straight away!

One thing I did notice however, was that it did not say on the bottle or outer packaging whether this is an instant or developing tan that you need to wash off. After contacting Wow Brown on >TWITTER< and spotting on the website, it is to be showered off after 5 hours (or 8 for a more intense tan).

I'll admit I was slightly scared when I saw how dark it was pre-shower, but once I washed off the excess in the shower it looked beautiful. I'm happy to report back that I was also streak free! Yay!

BEFORE 
AFTER
As I mentioned, this is after just one light layer! It claims to last for between 3-10 days so I will update this post to let you all know how it goes. Wow Brown uses high quality ingredients and is 100% Paraben free.

 It's priced at €21.99 direct from their website >HERE<
I've also found the Medium Dark Version priced at €18.99 >HERE<
or the Light/Medium version for €20.28 >HERE< 

Slán!

The spray nozzle was so handy, I've had mishaps with liquid tan before! Thanks so much, I was happy with the way the images turned out and I'm glad you found my review helpful. Hope you like it too xo

Brilliant review, it looks really good on you! Definitely impressed. Being honest, the woman on the box of tan has always put me off it, she looks so orange. It looks lovely and natural on you, thank you for this!

Ya the whole sad face pale woman and happy-go-lucky tanned woman is a bit dated. Plenty of people now embrace their paleness!
