Black Magic Tan Review

The lovely Dainah from Black Magic Tan Ireland got in touch with me a while back and sent me some amazing products to try. Luckily I didn't have to wear false tan this summer as I got a good colour on holiday, but once September hit I looked like casper again, I swear my skin goes transparent!! I was thrilled to try this tan as I have seen some bloggers rave about the tan.

The company kindly gifted me a bottle of the tanning mousse, a tanning glove and an exfoliating mitt- everything you need for applying tan perfectly. I thought it would be a good idea to give you some top tips for preparing your skin before you apply your tan.

1. Exfoliate your skin using an exfoliating glove and/ or an exfoliating scrub.
2. Moisturise your skin. Be sure to moisturise top to toe and allow the moisturizer to absorb into your skin before you apply the tan.
3. Pay particular attention to wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, feet and hands when exfoliating and moisturising. These areas are prone to become more dry and need extra moisture.
4. Always, always, always use a tanning mitt.
5.  Always remove your fake tan before applying a fresh layer. I like to use the fake tan remover from No More Dramas as it removes every speck of tan easily and quickly.

Black Magic Tan is originally from Australia and is Australia's leading tan brand. The brand has expanded internationally in recent years and is now sold in the USA, Europe, the UK and finally Ireland! I think I am correct in saying that this tan retails at €30 online, it is pricey but well worth the money. It is amazing quality and the product makes it so easy to achieve a beautiful and natural tan in the comfort of your own home.

I particularly loved how easy it is to apply this tan. You can see exactly where you are applying it and this ensures that you don't miss any patches and don't end up with streaky tan. Black Magic Tan is long wearing and fantastic quality. Once you prepare your skin well, this tan will fade gradually (rather than coming off in patches, which we all hate). 

I have to mention that this tan didn't transfer on to my white bed sheets at all, which made my mam so relieved!! I constantly have to throw out bed sheets due to tan staining them :( This tan didn't dry out my skin or cause any breakouts, which other tans often do. This tan has such a beautiful deep, warm and bronze glow. It is so natural and is very buildable so it will suit all skin tones. I love this product and is definitely my favourite tan at the moment.

Let me know if you have tried this tan!

Lots of Love,
