I feel like tan products are evolving and changing all the time – instant, fast developers, in-shower etc., but the humble tanning mitt has remained relatively unchanged.
Mine has probably been hanging around for far too long, so I was well due for an upgrade, and upgrade I did!
After a friend recommended it I got the ‘Glove your body’ tanning mitt €19.99.
Ok so it’s pretty pricey for a tanning mitt – you can get them cheaper, use a sock or your hands. So is it worth shelling out on what must be considered the rolls royce of tanning mitts?
The answer to that, is I guess, it depends.
For me personally – it was worth it, and here’s why:
- It doesn’t fall off the way other mitts do, this for me is one of the most annoying things that can happen and was the key improvement.
- Other benefits are – it’s prettier, it feels nicer to use as it’s not so skinny/paper thin, and you don’t have any tan come through. You can throw it in the washing machine and it genuinely does come out clean.
- On the downside it does absorb more product than other mitts – it’s not a major problem but it does happen.
So my verdict is, if you use a mitt a lot – definitely give it a try. I think it’s good and I plan to try their ‘Scrub your body’ exfoliating mitt.
You can buy it online at www.gloveyourbody.com (postage is €2.50), or check for a list of stockists I got mine in Dowlings pharmacy on Baggott Street.
