Best fake tan for quick results: Sienna X

So this weekend I met Kim Kardashian… which was awesome, but a beauty nightmare. How can I stand next to a woman who’s entire career is based on being gorgeous without a bit of a last moment panic…! So number one on my list was getting my fake tan on… and fast. Because in typical style I’d left it to the last min.
Cue tanners which promise fast results… I needed something with a max of two hour developing time before I had to wash it off and get out the door. So I pulled out my fake-tan stash and got reading, which promised the quickest – Sienna X.
Sienna X has recently had a bit of a make-over, and to be honest I don’t love the new style packaging. I actually feel it looks more old fashioned than the previous packaging/branding (which I wrote about here) but meh, packaging isn’t everything! 
Performance wise, I can’t fault it. I used the scrub on dry skin, then showered off before applying the Express Tanning Mist – I spray straight to skin and then buffed into skin with a mitt, let it dry/develop over two hours then washed off using the Balance Body Wash.
Results wise, I’m really happy – you can see my tan on the day on my Kim Kardashian post to see what you think of the shade. I genuinely couldn’t find a fault – I can normally be relied upon to find some sort of tanning-fail, usually on the feet or hands… but nope, this worked well all over! Top marks Sienna X!
So if you’re looking for a tan with fast results – I can totally recommend Sienna X.

    I’m in love with fake tanning products, and always been a fan of St Moriz (good and cheap haha)However I like that they have a prolonging body wash!! May be worth an investigation

    It sounds impressive, especially how quick it developed. I’ve only ever used St Tropez but am very intrigued by the new 2-3 week lasting tan I saw in Boots.

    Thanks so much for your tips on my new Mulberry – I will be taking good care of her!

    I hope you stop by again soon.
