Beauty And The Blogger
I used to be just lately invited to pop along to the Spa at the Midland Resort in Manchester for an specific remedy throughout my lunch. It’s a helpful 7 minute stroll (thanks, Google maps) from my work and that i had a short fancy hair couple of occasions taking place on the weekend so I determined to go along for a St Tropez spray tan to perk up my pasty pins.
The spa itself is actually fairly, extremely zen and very very stress-free. Unfortunately as I used to be on my lunch break I didn’t get as a lot of a chance to discover as I’d have liked but the world I hung around it after I’d had my tan was gorgeous with hanging pods to sit in and a very chilled ambiance with sizzling drinks and cucumber infused water which tasted wonderful. I can solely imagine how fab a spa day could be right here!
On to the tan…
I should say this was most likely probably the most thorough and cautious tan I’ve ever had in about 14 years of having spray tans done. Prime marks to Lara, the magnificence therapist who did my tan, who did something that no tanner has ever finished for me earlier than – she utilized moisturiser to my elbows, knees and backs of my feet (notorious dry, clingy tan areas for me) earlier than applying the tan short fancy hair so that it didn’t look darker on those areas. Bravo! I additionally had sticky feet, paper knickers and a hairnet on to protect the soles of my toes, er…other areas and my hair.
Lara was actually careful concerning the tan, applying it in a methodical way earlier than checking over to ensure there were no streaks or anything which again is simply an extra touch that makes a completely distinction. She left me to dry off and get dressed earlier than I headed off to the relaxation room I discussed earlier.
I went for medium as I had to return to work afterwards in addition to run a number of errands within the evening that I didn’t want to be too darkish/orange while it developed. I slept in my tan whereas it developed and I was actually happy with the colour – it wasn’t too darkish, orange or unnatural wanting, it just looked like I’d had a nice week in the solar somewhere which is exactly what I wanted. There have been no streaks, patchiness or tan cling anywhere either…yay!
It’s been over every week since I had my tan now and have to say it’s pale really evenly! No patching off or white hands with tanned arms. Result!
I’d positively have a tan at Midland Spa once more – for a St Tropez spray it’s solely £25 which is quite a bit cheaper than the place I’ve been beforehand, and the care that was taken with my tan massively outshone other locations I’ve been.
