Lauren's Way Self-Tanning Bronzing Lotion in Darker than Dark Review

As a self-confessed tan-aholic, I'm always keen to try out new tans. One that I've been meaning to tell you guys about for a while now is Lauren's Way tan. Created by TOWIE's Lauren Goodger, 'Lauren's Way' is a huge range of products including fake tan, lashes and hair products. The main attraction within the range has got to be the fake tans, and a  little while ago I was sent a few bits from the range, including the Self-Tanning Bronzing Lotion in 'Darker than Dark'. 

You know me, I love being bronzed, so I had high-hopes for this faux tanner. When it comes to fake tan I always opt for lotions as I feel they are much more moisturising, and this is no different. Whilst it might look a bit scary upon application (it really is darker than dark), it sinks into the skin beautifully and leaves it looking a really gorgeous, olive colour. It doesn't smell of biscuits when applying either, which is always a bonus, and once washed off it leaves you looking gorgeous and glowing. There is a slight hint of that biscuity fake tan smell once the morning comes, but it's totally worth it for the colour this gives. It's not streaky and doesn't look orange unlike a lot of tans, but gives a much more natural look, whilst still being nice and dark. 

I really love this tan and it is most definitely up there with my favourites. It's not a bad price either, at £17.95 for 250ml. Another great thing I love about this tan is that Lauren's Way have recognised us fake-tanners are always looking to top up our tans, so their one litre bottles are ideal if you are a regular fake-tanner, and don't want to risk the 'I've run out of tan!!!' panic the night before a big event. Overall I think this tan is great and I'm definitely becoming a big fan of the entire Lauren's Way range! 

Have you tried Lauren's Way's fake tan before? What did you think?


  1. I've never been a massive fan of 'celebrity made' products but after what you've just said I might just have to give it a go!

  2. I love this tan it streak easily like some tans do, it doesn't feel sticky on the skin and doesn't dry to quick so you still have time to blend it but doesn't take ages to dry! I found this post really helpful Hannah maybe you could do a video/ blog post on your fake tanning routine!!

  4. I'm really not into tan at all (I mean whatsoever... I've never applied it!) but I'm sort of considering having a go when we get into the Spring/Summer and the legs come out! I'm the palest thing since Casper.
