Last night I managed to squeeze in a ‘Vita Liberata’ Spray Tan at the ‘Benefit Boutique’ in Covent Garden;5 minutes from where I live. I usually get my tan at ‘Fab Spray Tans’ in Kent (usually on a Friday night) BUT as I am in London during the week, I had to look at other options!
I came across ‘Benefit Boutique’ by chance late yesterday afternoon. I was busy googling spray tan salons in Covent Garden. I didn’t know Benefit had rooms for pamper sessions, sprays tans, waxes, eyebrows etc. They also do make overs which I will probably try next week! Luckily the Boutique had one space left at 5:30pm so I got myself booked in and a few hours later I was standing naked in the spray booth waiting to be transformed! I can’t stand tan lines so I always decline the option of the ‘paper thong’ but I was taking no chances with muddy looking feet so the sticky shoes were a YES please! My tan specialist was incredibly friendly and sweet. The whole process takes around 15minutes as I like to be sprayed twice. I wanted to be brown not ‘lightly sun kissed.’ I walked in like a pasty goat so I need to be leaving like I have stepped off of a plane after a week in the Bahamas! The whole process took around half an hour which was ideal plus it was now dark outside… WIN no one can see my tangoed new look in the dark. Hoping no one would see me (plus I’m braless) I quickly pop into Holland and Barretts to trial a couple pea-protein yoghurts… FAIL they taste horrible (I’m trying to limit my dairy and soya intake so I am looking at other options, clearly this was not one). Anyway I get home and sleep in all black loose clothing, I put a towel over my pillows and sheets as not to stain them! I wash my tan off in the morning and I am looking meeeeaaan. Loving my new bronzed look and I will definitely book myself in again! Now the real question is how long will this tan last??? Meh, as long as I am looking fresh for the weekend it’s all good in the hood.
