One of them things you don't REALLY need - Velvotan Fake Tan Folding Back Applicator Review

Whilst ordering some more of my favourite fake tan the other day, I saw this little contraption come up on the same page, and I thought, despite how much of a novelty product it seems, how kind of brilliant the idea behind it was. 




But what did I really think of it? The concept, and the idea is pretty good, and I can imagine, quite the money-maker! However, the design just isn't quite there yet, it's too flimsy and small to get an even finish on your back, and takes so long to use, that by the time its even, your tan has actually dried, and gone a little "crumby" - it wasn't pretty!  I like the fact that it folds, and has a replacement pad, for ease of storage and use, but out of storage, it just isn't worth the money.



So I'm pretty sure you can all guess whether or not I think this is a total novelty? So much so, I wish I'd have spent my money on five bars of Dairy Milk from the pound shop. But let's be serious, chocolate is welcome anytime, anyday. (Is that some Dairy Milk in the fridge??? BYE!)

  2. It sounded like something I'd go for too, I'm always looking for new tans and new ways to tan. Guess I'll stick to latex gloves and baby sponges! xo

  7. I bought this too but I can only seem to apply splodgy patches of fake tan to my back with it. Shame because it's such a good idea...maybe the sponge pad just needs to be bigger. Glad I'm not the only one having issues with it! I'll stick to asking my Mum to tan my back for me :P Hope you're well Mol xxx
