He-Shi Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan* (£22.50)
I am a massive fan of He-Shi products, especially their liquid tan and I always recommend it to everyone who likes fuss free formulas. The new Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan is very similar to the original, but it works in just 1 hour, which means that you can actually fake tan right before you go out, without staining your clothes and bed sheets at night :) Perfect!
He-Shi Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan features unique time development accelerators and gives you an instant golden colour. It can be used on your face and body. As soon as you apply it, your skin will look slightly tanned and after 60 minutes, the tan will develop into a darker colour. You can see the result on the photos below. If you want a much darker tan, you can leave it on for 3-4 hours, but I just stick to the 60 minutes and wash it off for a more natural effect.
For best results, you should exfoliate the areas you will be tanning and apply the tan to completely dry and clean skin, without moisturising, making sure there is no oil residue from scrubs etc on your body. This way, you will get a streak free, even tan, without any horrible patches. The results are flawless and the colour looks very natural and lasts on my skin for over a week, fading slowly and evenly. He-Shi Rapid 1 Hour Tan has lovely yellow undertones, which makes it perfect for my skin tone. The formula is also very hydrating and leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished. I like using He-Shi's Gradual Tan to maintain the colour, but a good moisturiser will do the trick too.
Overall, I adore He-Shi's new offering and I would definitely recommend it to those who like liquid formulas, instant colour and a natural looking tan.
