WHOA. I was expecting Givenchy's new Tan to Go to work, just not this well, and certainly not this quickly.
Here's how I thought it would go: Following the instructions, I'd shake this can of temporary spray tan, aim it at my face from eight inches away, and calmly and lightly mist my face for several seconds until my desired color was achieved.
And here's how it actually went down: I shook the spray can, aimed it at my face from eight inches away, and BOOM!!! One blast-lasting about a third of a second-and my complexion was instantly tan, as if I'd just come back from a week-long holiday in Ibiza. Seriously, it was scary how quickly and effectively it worked. I even ran it down my arms and witnessed the same effect. (I felt like I was Judy Jetson-you know, how she can transform her appearance in one hot second?)
But the "gee whiz!" factor doesn't end there: Once it's on, you can't even feel it. The formula is composed of silicones, light oils, and coated pigments, but when you press the nozzle, the applicator only emits teeny spray drops which dry to a powdery, velvety finish that stays on all day. Plus, it comes in two shades-Sandy Tan for fair skin, and Amber Tan for darker skin tones.
If you want to build your tan, just keep at it. I could become a tan-in-a-can-orexic.Related Links from Allure:
