ready to glo





As much as I love being pale, when the sun makes an appearance I can't help but feel the need to have a subtle glow on my skin. I've tried a lot of tanning products in the past and I've had my fair share of streaky messes, orange patches, dark elbows and knees. I hate the smell too, and always feel that the tans I've been using are too orange for my complexion, even applied lightly using the lightest shade. Gradual tanners work best for me, but even those can be too orange.

Last month I went to an event at the Scottish Academy of Make-up and was introduced to Wow Brown Tan, which was created in Ireland with us pale girls in mind. I found out that most fake tans on the market are developed for olive skin tones, which is why they often give that mucky orange colour. Apparently Wow Brown would be perfect for pale skinned girls like me to achieve a subtle tan... and I was sold. I was given a bottle of their Ready To Glo tanning liquid and couldn't wait to try it!

Wow Brown Ready to Glo is a liquid tan in a spray bottle. I spritzed it directly on to my skin and rubbed in circular motions with a tanning mit. Although the liquid is a scary black colour, the tan went on easily with minimal blending required (if I'm honest I just slapped it on without really caring!) and not one streak in sight. It gives me colour instantly, and it's the most natural looking tan I've ever had. I looked sun-kissed without having that fake tan look. You could still tell I was pale, and despite being an instant tan it doesn't streak and run when it comes into contact with water - I'm looking at you Sun Shimmer!

It did have a very slight biscuit-y smell like most fake tans do, although I've smelled worse! One thin layer of this is enough for me to achieve my ideal glow, although I've experimented a little, and whilst it's not something I'd do myself, it's easily buildable to create a darker tan which looks just as natural. Ready to Glow lasts about 4 days on my skin. I'm also really lazy with moisturising and 'taking care' of my tan, but I'm happy to say that it wore off well and I had no patcyness or scaly parts.

This is hands down the best tanning product I've ever used. I can see myself getting around 10 uses from this single bottle, and it's definitely something I would re-buy. If you fake tan on a regular basis this might end up being quite an expensive product at £18.95 for 100ml but I find it perfect for a quick fix for nights out or for when the sun makes a surprise appearance!

Although I received this for free at an event, I wasn't asked provide a review and my opinion is completely honest.

  1. Wow, I'm sold too! I'm such a fake tan addict (but the natural tan kind) but I'm not too sure about the price tag just yet..
    That sounds really great though. May have to do a little bargain hunting on this product!
    Loved this review!

  3. i went through a phase in high school where i thoght i had to wear fake tan to fit in...it was a disasted and i smelt of baby poo for a year or so before i just though "i'd rather be pale than smell and look this bad" and i've been white ever since :) although in summer i do think i'm going to have to tone it up a little...i can't afford blinding people with my white leggies! can you use this on your face?

    also, what is your nail varnish? it looks beautiful and glitzy!

  4. I very rarely use fake tan, but I would really love to have a bit of colour so I can feel confident having bare legs in the summer.
    I don't suppose you could post some pictures showing the results sometime?

  5. I'm also sold on the 'for pale girls' line - But liquid spray? Slightly concerned about my furniture and black/white bathroom tiles haha. I usually use mousse as I just feel like it'll be easier - But if you're SURE there were no streaks with this, then I'm on the lookout for it! Am I right in thinking its pretty hard to get hold of though? xx

Our PhD proposal writing service can help reduce your stress and provide you with a though provoking proposal.

  14. creating a thesis statement A thesis statement is not limited to just one sentence. It has to be placed in the introductory paragraph of an essay and can consist of one or two sentences. In order to be effective it should not be long and drawn out. It must be specific and to the point. It is rather difficult to create a strong thesis statement, which is why all students can benefit from using an effective thesis statement creator.

Admittedly, some of these services have non-native speakers on their writing staff writing subpar papers. These papers are usually laden with obvious errors at best or are unintelligible at worst.
