Bronze Ambition "Fake Don't Bake" Natural Look Tanning Cream Review and Giveaway


A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a full set of Bronze Ambition self tan products.  I am not a DIY fake tan type of girl, if I ever fancy a bronzing I usually get a spray tan.  However since I have received this product I have absolutely changed my views and can honestly say I am a complete convert to DIY self-tanning!  I received quite a few different types of products in my prize bundle, but I decided to test the "Fake Don't Bake" Natural Look Tanning Cream.  



I've used gradual tanning moisturisers before, with varying degrees of success, and I think this product is fairly similar in texture but produces a slightly darker result which is good for me as I am dark haired and can take a darker tan even though I am fair skinned.  I love the scent which is very fresh with a slightly coconut undertone, even I know that a nice smell is a massive plus when it comes to self tan.  The cream rubs in really quickly and I didn't need to hang around for ages waiting for it to dry.  I did all of my top half (didn't see the point of doing my legs with the way the weather is a the moment) with about half the tube.  I used Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub all over in the shower before applying this product and the result was a gorgeous natural tan WITH NO STREAKS!  One layer was definitely enough colour for me, the colour was so naturally bronzed I didn't feel the need to put on any more and I have only had to top up my colour once since my first application 10 days ago, so it lasts well too.  As I said at the beginning of this post I won my products, but I've taken a look on their website http://www.bronze-ambition.com/ and all their products retail for under £5.99, with this particular product retailing for just £2.99 (and there's a banner on their website saying if you like them on Facebook you can get 30% off...winner).  Obviously you can purchase via the website, but I also read somewhere that someone actually bought theirs in Poundland so keep your eye out if you're in there.  There's a quote on their website saying they beat Fake Bake in a tried and tested trial and I can quite believe it.  I will continue to use Bronze Ambition, why pay over the odds for a more expensive alternative when this performs so well?


I was sent two sets of these fab tubes so I'm giving one of you lucky people a chance to win one so you can see how great they are for yourself.  

Ready, steady, glow!
