The Giveaway / Oskia Adaptive Tan Mist

Did you start fake tanning in the ‘90s? If so, you probably harbour some suspicions about all the myriad new forms the stuff now comes in, as anyone who once traipsed around town covered in a layer of what looked like smeared poo for the requisite 12 hour developing time is perfectly justified in doing.

But it’s a brave new thrilling world. Bronzed skin can be yours – minus stink, plus hydration – pretty easily now. And if you hate a mousse or liquid tan (I do – even with the utmost care I find they always end up streaky), you can now use an oil, or a gradual creamy formula, or those handy drops you just add into whatever else you’re rubbing on your face and bod.

Personally, I like a spray. So easy. So speedy. So foolproof. I fell in love with a new version every few years (you may remember my Amber Solaire obsession). My newest favourite is the Oskia Adaptive Tan Mist. And not just for the aforementioned reasons of ease but also because the tan shade is so damn realistic that I found myself checking my spf to make sure it wasn’t off as the colour I’d developed on my face and neck looked so close to the colour I’d go in the sun. It also contains melanin boosters, which means your skin tone will deepen over time without the sun – and also build up a slight cellular resistance to sun (but good God you still need SPF).

I have only tested it on myself, so if you’re much darker or lighter, I’m curious to hear what your experience of it is – but if you’re around my colour, I can practically guarantee you’ll love it. In fact I’m so certain that I asked Oskia if they’d give five of my readers a bottle to try and, being the good sports they are, they said yes.

Usual drill: leave me a comment (preferably with a tan product recommendation or tanning anecdote so I have more fuel for my ‘wear SPF’ mission), and five winners will be picked on the 6th of August 2018 and notified by email before being sent their very own bottle of Oskia Adaptive Tan Mist. (This competition is open to UK residents only.)

    If I so much as go in the sun my skin gets itchy and sore so something like this would be good so I can look a little bit like I have a tan.

  • Laura says:

    I always fake-tan before I go on holiday, then come home paler than before I went! Better than coming home looking like a lobster though :)

  • Lesley says:

    Never used a spray one before – still looking for my perfect fake tan!

  • Emma Jane burton says:

    Never ever use oil! I used it once in lanzerote and thought that it would make me look like a bronzed goddess! More like a lobster and the pain was horrendous !! Never again

  • paula cheadle says:

    I have never used tan spray, but I am thinking about using one, as I am finding that I can’t sit in the sun like I used too

  • Sue says:

    I don’t sunbathe anymore as I over did it in my youth when we thought getting a tan meant going bright red first! I’d like to try a good spray tan to even out my sun damaged skin ????

  • Sarah watkinson says:

    I love skinny tan, but would love to give this agoxx

  • I have always avoided fake tan as I can never apply it properly but I do like the Clarins gradual tan that you add to your normal moisturiser as you can gradually build up the colour and it doesn’t smell too bad

  • Natalie says:

    So intrigued by this product. I absolutely love Oskia and they make up almost all of my skincare so I can’t wait to see what this is like.

    Tanning wise I love vita liberata. I find their products Works so well if you have yellow undertones and the quality is great. Their body blur is my fail safe if I need to be tanned quick. Also recently I have been loving Bobbi Brown Elvis bronzer. It’s gives the skin such a natural glow that looks like you’ve just been away. It looks a little scary in the pan but beautiful on the skin xx
