July. Is. Here. So of course that means fake tan is firmly back on my radar. For me nothing means the slightly nicer weather has arrived than being sure my skin has somewhat of a glow. A new addition to my ever growing tan collection is the He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse (£25), and I am in fact entirely new to He-Shi brand, which name I do love for starters, even if I can't pronounce it.
The Gold Foaming Mousse is a mousse, if the name didn't give that one away, and like most you just apply it where you fancy, leave 6-8 hours (don't sweat etc so any excuse for me not to exercise), and then wash to bronzed skin. This has made me miss mousses after my recent affair with sprays, as it spreads so easily and smoothly and dries in a instant without stickiness. I even managed to fix a few areas with my hands as it is that workable, and hopefully I washed my hands in time...or no high fives for me.
Another thing that is a must for me and my tans is being able to see the colour when applying it, as I am just not talented enough for the guessing games, and the Gold Foaming Mousse is perfect as I can see just were its going, or not going and the bits I've missed which more the case.
Even though this does look quite dark, once spread its a medium colour, which isn’t too deep for this time of year, yet I no longer look like a blonde corpse. Its very true to its name, and a lovely golden shade is the best way to describe the result. The smell is practically non existent, so much so that I did nearly forget to mention it. I would go as far as saying this has no scent, maybe due to the 92% natural ingredients, lack of parabens or alcohol but I'm not grumbling. With the mix of aloe vera, vitamins A and E, plus vitamin B5 to boost hydration, the He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse is my new favourite tanner in my bathroom. Next on my list? Learning to pronounce it.
Have you tried the He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse?
