So it’s November and it’s getting colder. Regular readers to my blog know I’m a summer person. The thought of being cold and pale makes me wish for summer... 
While I can’t promise a solution to the weather, help isn’t far away from stopping me from being pale thanks to Norvell tanning.
You know how some people look amazing with pale skin. I’m not one of them. I look ill when I’m pale, which means I have to fake it. 
Norvell is America’s number one professional tanning brand and it’s fast becoming mine as well. It’s the only tanning product when I’ve applied it correctly I get the most compliments about. 
The Ultra vivid tanning mist is the latest to be added to my ever growing fake tan collection and it’s definitely my favourite. It retails at £29.99 and you can buy it directly from the brand.
This 2 in 1 self tanning mist not only gives you an amazing glow it also helps protect against dry, dull skin that the colder winter months can bring. Skin feels moisturised and while this product hydrates your skin with its anti ageing benefits it’s also blurs out your skin imperfections and blemishes.
This product comes in a spray which I find so much easier. It comes with some little nostril protectors so you don’t inhale the fumes if you spray your face. This to me is such a good idea. I can’t believe I hadn’t thought about inhaling fumes before in regards to fake tan.
The list of ingredients is also a bit impressive these include: 
Cranberry extract to help to combat free radicals and moisturise the skin.
Vitamin C which helps stimulate collagen to tighten and smooth the skin.
Watermelon Extract which helps to reduce redness and the appearance of skin.
Coconut Extract which helps to protect skin from harmful bacteria.
Vitamin E which helps to block free radicals and reduce wrinkles.
Tomato Extract which helps to revives skins glow and prevent the signs of ageing.
Banana which helps to repair, restore and hydrate the skin. It also helps to diminish the look of wrinkles.
Aloe Barbandensis Leaf which helps to moisturises the skin to help with Anti-Ageing.
So not only are you giving yourself a healthy glow during the winter months you are actually taking good care of your skin. The spray also contains violet and bronze tones to help deepen your bronzed glow without any hint of orange to be seen. 
So how did I find this product.
Before I start I did cheat a little. Norvell recommend that you exfoliate the day before. My pale skin was too pale for me to wait another day for a bit of colour, I know you guys will forgive me when I say I missed that bit out. Of course I did exfoliate but I applied the tan straight after. Cheating I know but I just couldn’t wait!!! 
Firstly the mist is very fine. I have to admit, I was kind of worried it was all going to spray out in one big woosh. It didn’t. It spread really evening and even though I had my tanning mitt to hand found I didn’t really have to use it as much as I thought I would have to. The trick for using this product is to spray it 10-12 inches away from your body. This makes the spray apply more evenly without  the need of you using your tanning mitt. 

The brand also recommend that you apply a light coat onto your makeup sponge for facial application. This for me is an amazing idea. Not only does it really work for applying tan to your face, it also helps you not to breathe in so much of the fumes from the aerosol can. You also have more control on where the product is going. I know I have used spray tan on my face and ended up with it in my hair and ears!! ( so not a good look!!) This really helps to prevent this from happening.
The tan deepens after 24 hours but I found if you do it in the evening the next morning your tan is as deep as it’s going to get.
The tan really lasts as well. Around 5-7 days. So I find if you tan once a week this is enough to keep those pale winter blues away.
I have included some pictures of the tan on me. I had intended to do before and after pictures but lost the before pictures!!! ( which to be honest perhaps is for the best!!) 
Best of all this amazing product is cruelty free and vegan so what’s not to love.
If you have tried this before I would love to hear what you think. I am also keen to find out if the skin benefits help my skin after using this product over the next few months or so.
I will leave you the link below if you fancy giving this tan a try. It’s not a budget product, but sometimes you need a bit of luxury in your life. ( well I do anyway!!)

If you have lasted till the end Thank you so much for reading and hope you find this useful.
Until next time.
