I have said it before I will say it again – ‘Hello my name is Jade and I am a fake tanning addict!’
When it comes to using fake tan I believe this is the one area when you can be as picky as you like. You know the desired effect you are after. Whether that be natural sun kissed or a golden goddess. For your average day a gentle sun kissed look is ideal. It gives me that healthy natural glow I so desperately seek, Although on special occasions or nights out I like to step over to the dark side.

I was beyond delighted to get my hands on Ireland new must have tan – Iconic Bronze. For me this is the Irish girl’s answer to a golden olive sun kissed complexion. Iconic Bronze is a tanning lotion. I find it to be an extremely high quality formula that melts into my skin within in a few moments after application. If like me you cannot stand the average fake tan smell you will be pleasantly surprised by this sweet floral fragrance that will captivate your senses. Melting into your skin the aroma of Fig, Mandarin and Orange Blossom with undertones of Jasmine, Frangipani Amber cedar and musk.
Iconic Tan really is the answer to my little vitamin D deprived skin.
Iconic Bronze is more than just a tan. It is completely nourishing, hydrating and Paraben free. It is infused with sunflower oil to lock in moisture leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. (I kid you not.) Omega 6 and 9 are added to enhance the complexion which is the secret to visible radiance and improves the skin’s texture and softness.
I attended the Irish Beauty Blog awards last week, and I was glowing in Iconic Bronze Tanning Lotion in the medium shade. I absolutely loved how natural it looked on my skin. The olive undertones gave the impression I have just landed back on Irish soil after a sizzling hot week in the Maldives. One of my favourite entity from using this tan was how even and softly it faded. I got 5 strong days – then it faded uniformly. This week I was eagerly awaiting to try out their darker shade. The darker shade is like no other self tanning product on the market. It has a rich deep olive shade to it without it masking your skin. It glows like no other. Using their Deluxe Mitt, application is smooth, streak free and mess free! It’s velvet like mitt is thick, luxurious and cushioned making application super quick.
I like to apply this tan the night before and to let it develop over night. I exfoliate and moisturise before applying Iconic Bronze. In the morning when I am ready to wash it off, it reveals a gorgeous olive tan ready for the weekend’s festivities. (Which usually consists of a wild night of wine and pizza in front of the tv.)
