Ivadore Tanning Treatment & Moisturiser

Without making a statement too sweeping, Ivadore’s Tanning Treatment is one of the best I have ever tried. I have explored different fake-tans in the past and none have wowed me as much as this one. This formula has been designed to give an even, natural looking tan while also moisturizing and protecting the skin due to its antioxidant component. After using Ivadore’s Body Combat scrub I applied this tan to my whole body. I used just my hands to apply the product rather than using a tanning mitt. I spread it pretty liberally over my legs but used it sparingly around troublesome areas like knees, elbows, ankles and wrists. After allowing about 10 minutes for the product to dry completely I got dressed and went to sleep without rinsing off. The next morning I was positively glowing! I was so impressed with how natural the tan looked on my skin and was pleased to see that the keratosis pilaris (bumpy skin that so many of us experience) on the backs of my arms even looked to be smoother, too. I highly recommend this product!

Three Warriors Face Tan Aqua Mist

I have become utterly obsessed with this product. I adore facial mists as it is, let alone one that promises a golden, summery glow. This mist is gentle and refreshing and can be applied in multiple ways. I rarely apply facial mists as they’re intended. Instead, I spray the product into my hand and pat it onto my face, neck and décolletage. For this product I did just that, but sometimes mixed it into my existing facial mist. After applying it a few times my skin was glowing, and not just because it had a subtle tanned tone. I believe the minerals and ingredients in this truly nourish your skin. It also makes a great makeup setter, too!

Three Warriors Gradual Tan

The Three Warriors Gradual Tan is such a wonderful product. I don’t normally apply fake tan of any kind, but I fear that is something that is about to change. This product smells delicious and a small amount smooths onto your whole body with ease. After just one application I had people commenting the next day on my tan. I didn’t get asked once if it was a fake tan, but rather, received comments like “did you go to the beach on the weekend?” That’s how natural this tan looks on the skin. It is even, golden and natural. No orange tones here! If you want a sublte tan you really only need to apply it once. If you want a deeper, bronze tone, then apply a few days in a row. And voila!

Three Warriors Self Tan Mousse

The Three Warriors Self-Tan Mousse is equally as easy to apply as its Gradual Tan counterpart. I very rarely apply fake tan, so when I do, I want it to last and be worth the effort of applying it. This product most definitely is. I found it so easy to apply. I just pumped a few clouds of foam onto a tan application mitt and rubbed it all over my legs. It spread evenly and dried quickly, which meant I could get dressed and go about my business straight away. I love it. Simply exfoliate, apply and glow. Done!
