Oh how I love being tanned. For me, tanned is a natural state as a Brazilian, but since moving to London my skin has turned a colour I still don’t recognise as mine.
I’ve been using self tan for a while now, but have rarely had a spray tan.
Only my second ever, Kissed by Mii was a lovely experience.
The whole Kissed by Mii range – professional and at home – is enriched with marine mineral extracts. The nourishing benefits of coral seaweed and coastal flowers replenish the skin’s natural minerals to leave it soft, helping the tan develop evenly.
At the fabulous London ME set up, where I was introduced to the brand – not only the professional spray tan, but also their lovely and extensive makeup range and home tanning products – just added to the experience.
My tan-master, the lovely Shelley, explained every step, made me feel super comfortable in my Mii gown and turban, and selected the right shade for me, after consulting.
The process was quick, the tan dried quickly and the guide colour was fabulous.
Getting that tan was very welcome, as I was about to embark to Brasil on holiday, so the prospect of not glowing in the dark was exciting.
I have to admit that not being able to shower before bed was a bit unnerving for me, but I soldiered on.
In the morning, when I washed it off, the colour left was close to the guide, obviously lighter and more natural, an even sun-kissed golden perfect for my skin tone.
Smell wise, I have to admit I did catch a sniff from time to time – I’m quite sensitive about that, but overall it didn’t bother me too much.
Arriving in Brasil, the sun sadly disappeared within two days for a whole five, but my Mii tan stood in for it, until its return.
