If you were following my social media you’ll know I spent the last few days in Tenerife with my friend Ciara. I was invited over to the launch event of the Hotel Vulcano rooftop Up Terrace (where I took these pics – the views are amazing!) We had such a fun few days and an interesting journey with Veuling (never flying with them again haha) – you can watch my vlog of the trip here.
Anyway one of the questions I got asked a lot on the trip was what tan I was wearing. If you follow my social media you’ll know I’m an Iconic Bronze ambassador. I absolutely love their tan, and have been using it for almost a year now. It’s October now so it’s safe to say my summer tan has well and truly faded. I love being nice and dark so my go-to tan is the Iconic Bronze dark mousse – which I applied the night before travelling, I slept with it on and washed it off that morning. I find it applies really smoothly with the Iconic Bronze mitt (no streaks) and lasts really well (doesn’t go blotchy). You can see more about the tan and how I apply it here. It’s approx €13.99 (depending on where you buy it) and I’d usually get a month or two out of a bottle if I was applying regularly. You can buy in Penneys/Primark or in pharmacies nationwide as well.
I also apply the Iconic Bronze Body Bling over the dark mousse tan (once it’s been washed off) for an extra bit of glow/shimmer at night. The Body Bling usually costs approx €11.99 and has a small bit of instant tan in it, so I usually don’t apply during the day as I love going in and out of the water too much. It’s smaller in size than the regular tan so I find it very handy to travel with.
I was in the pool both days and found the tan lasted incredibly well. Just as it did at Coachella earlier this year, and that was a 10 day trip! I’m home now so tonight I will apply a layer of the tan eraser, and reapply a fresh layer of the dark mousse as I have the U magazine 30 under 30 awards tomorrow I want to be all bronzed up for.
I love giving you all the opportunity to try the tan so I’ll be doing another competition before the end of the year, keep an eye on my Instagram (@louisecooney_) for that,
Anyway I’m off to fully say goodbye to summer and get the winter gear out, it really has gotten very cold in the past few days,
I’ll be back soon with more updates,
