It’s interesting that the first tanning product I tried this year has a sister product that’s pretty muched turned me off of tanning all together. I was pretty impressed by Seven Nyne. It seemed to have so much more than celebrity backing, and it was a line that I could really get behind.
And then I tried Sevin Nyne Tanning Mist. The tanning mist is a dark brown colour so it got absolutely everywhere in my tub, and because it dries so quickly it was a major pain to clean up. All the work would have been worth it if this at least gave me a nice tan.
Instead, I ended up a streaky blotchy mess, and I couldn’t wait to scrub this off.
The spraying mechanism in the bottle is pretty cheap and I found that it was really difficult to get a nice even spray of product. Even when I did what the back of the bottle asked, and moved the spray in large continuous circles, I found that I couldn’t get the bottle to give me a nice even coat of the tanning solution. At the end of it all, the product dried in splotches and that’s how my tan turned out too.
I also found that the tanning mist did not look natural at all in colour. When I had the dried mist on me, it was so splotchy that I looked dirty and had to wash it off. The final colour that developed was super orange, and looked fake right from the get-go.
I used the mist once and then threw the rest of the product in the garbage. I hardly ever have to do that, but this was so bad that I didn’t even want to pass it on to someone else to use.
Sevin Nyne is available at Sephora. I would pass on the mist and go for the lotion. Better yet, go to the drugstore and get yourself the L’Oreal Pro-Perfect Self-Tanning Mist, which is beyond amazing and worth every penny.
