Laurens Way Wash off Glow- Review

 So you all know my love of being tanned. When the hottest SS14 ensembles are all whites and pastels my milky bottle skin makes outfits look washed out. I have always loved spray tans and have had my fair share of both good and bad ones. 
In the past I have tried a  Lauren's Way Spray tan and needless to say it was fabulous. However, what do you do when you dream of being tanned all year round? A trip for a spray tan every week is neither realistic or practical, but I have a solution.

Recently I had the opportunity to try LWTAN.
Laurens Way have simply mastered the art of tanning solution developing a shade for every avid tanner.  The Paraben and alcohol free solution means you can achieve that healthy glow without damaging your body or taking in any chemicals that may not agree with your skin. I have always been sceptical of using bottle solutions as I have been exposed to the many times they go wrong. After trying LWTAN, I am obsessed and aim to be a bronzed goddess all year round.
I tried and test the Laurens Way wash off glow in medium. 
Disclaimer: As many of you know I have just been on holiday to Turkey for a week in which some of you may think my 'natural tan' would affect the outcome of this product. I can assure you my body pre the Turkish sun remains the same as it was before I jet off. If you have been following my blog you will be able to see this.

Product and packaging:
When I received my tan and moisturiser the packaging was cute and quirky. The bottles are simplistic, practical and look totally chic meaning they are definitely worth a place on your dressing table.

The price
LWTAN is not only affordable but well worth its cost. Both the medium and darker ranges start for £11.95 per bottle and the darker than dark/solution 60 range are only a few pound more. What is even more exciting is my exclusive discount specifically for you darlings. Enter the code LWBLOG1010 out and receive 20% off online products! This is an offer you will not want to miss out on. Terms & Conditions can be found at www.laurensway.com 

Pre application
I followed the very detailed instructions to exfoliate at least 24 hours prior to tanning and use the LW moisturiser on any dry patches to avoid patchiness. Any moistouriser can be used not specifically Laurens Way, however I most certainly recommend this brand as the bottle is generous in size and the moisturiser is light rather than thick and creamy like many.
BEFORE
                                                       
The application
The application of this tan had to be the easiest activity I have ever pursued. I already had my hair and make up done ready to go out at night so stood with my tanning mitt and the bottle ready to give the wash off glow a try. The wash off glow is perfect for first time tanners because it's just that, wash off ... so you can be reassured that your tan is streak and mistake free. There was no particular way to apply the tan except using circular motions with the mitt. I can assure you that applying the tan required minimal effort only took 60 seconds to dry. Of course I would recommend wearing old underwear when applying as with any fake tan solution it stains both clothes and fabrics. 

The outcome
AFTER
Urmmm fabulous! My pale skin had turned to a gorgeous natural bronze glow. As soon as my tan was dry I knew I was in love and tanned day after day on holiday, expect one in order to show you before and after looks (needless to say I looked better with tan). 
The moisturiser
The moisturiser is a pre and post tan essential. I washed my tan off the majority of the time simply because I didn't want the chlorine to make it go a strange colour but for the days where I chose to keep the tan on the moisturiser was the perfect accessory to ensuring it never lost its glow. 

I could not recommend LWTAN anymore as the outcome is divine, delightful and delicious. I would be easily tempted to try the darker shades which are recommend for darker/olive skin tones- once I start going bronze I become a little obsessive! 
Just imagine it being the middle of December and everyone compliments your darling bronze glow.
You'll thank me darlings.
