He-Shi Tan










For such a long time now I have been looking for a great self tanner that doesnt leave me looking orange (I'm very pale!) I saw that Pixiwoo put on Instagram  a He-Shi tanner. Then after doing some research as I hadn't heard of this brand before I found that He-Shi has loads of great reviews I gave in and bought some to try!

This is now my favourite self tanner! I even got my friend to try some and within a couple of days I bought another one to try! The two I bought were the Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan and the Face and Body Tanning Gel .

Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan is £22.50 for 150ml and can be used all over the body. This is the first tanner I bought off He-Shi and loved it instantly. As the name suggest it gives a nice colour in just an hour and if you want a deeper tan you just leave it on longer the deeper you want. This lasts between 7-10 days but I have found mine lasts longer! The great thing about both these tans is that you can see where you are applying it and if you miss anywhere which is what I need in a tanner as Im good at missing places lol. It dries quickly and I just love the finished result as for me its not over dark or looks fake and it gives a nice glow which is what I wanted. It also doesnt smell! You dont moisturise before applying and make sure to exfoliate, I also bought the He-Shi tanning mitt to apply and its the best mitt ive ever used! 

Key ingredients are:
'Ecocert approved DHA (active tanning ingredient). By using organic DHA our products are now more natural than ever.
Pentavitin (Moisture lock tecnhology) for results lasting up to 10 days.
Added primarily for its moisture retention, regulating and binding properties. Protects dry skin against symptoms such as brittleness, roughness, unevenness, faintness and itching
Clinically proven – tests have shown that PENTAVITIN improved hydration of the skin by up to 40% '
After loving the He-Shi Rapid 1 Hour so much I went and bought the He-Shi Face and Body tanning gel this is £17.50 for 150ml. This is ideal for people who have dry skin but I bought this to use mainly on my face as it can be used as a foundation. This again is non scented and lasts for 7-10 days, I used this first on my legs to see what the colour was like because I didn't want to risk my face going wrong! I found this to me turns out darker then the Rapid 1 hour so I haven't used it on my face as of yet but don't get me wrong its still a fantastic golden glow colour! You leave this one of for 6-8 hours. It does glide onto the skin as they state and it does feel moisturised after use. I tend to use this one mainly for my legs.
Key Ingredients:
'Ecocert approved DHA (active tanning ingredient).  By using organic DHA our products are now more natural than ever.
Pentavitin (Moisture lock tecnhology) for results lasting up to 10 days.  Added primarily for its moisture retention, regulating and binding properties.  Protects dry skin against symptoms such as brittleness, roughness, unevenness, faintness and itching
Clinically proven – tests have shown that PENTAVITIN improved hydration of the skin by up to 40%
Isopentyldiol also works alongside Pentavitin. Primarily for its moisture retention – helping to maintain high moisture content in the skin
Clinically proven – tests have shown a 110% increase in moisture content 5 minutes after application'
  
I really love this He-Shi tan as it gives a fab golden glow and not an orange look. The price isnt too bad as I still have lots left as you don't need too much, I just really cant recommend this enough!

P.s The photos I took of my arm and legs dont give it much justice lol!
