Is it winter where you are? It sure is here in Perth, Australia. I'm unsure about you but I'm white! Super Pale! Last winter I anded up wearing the shade porcelain in foundation. To warm up my skin this winter I have a super amazing product to talk to you about!
Its the Le Tan Uber Dark Green Base Tanning Mouse. Le Tan actually released there Uber dark collection about a week ago which included a bunch of different basses including Green Base, Ash Base, Violet Base and Marula Oil. I would like to share my thoughts on the Le Tan Uber Dark Green Base which great for all skin tones.

Once you try Uber Dark you'll never go back"
Before I tried this product, I exfoliated my legs and moisture the night before to prepare them for the tanner. The tanner comes in a bottle with a foaming pump. . Using the LeTan tanning mitt which came with the product. The tanning mitt itself is super soft and doesn't leave any streaky mess.
I used 2 pumps to begin with and in circular motions, I applied the tanner start at my knee working down to my foot. I used about 5 pumps of the foam tanner to cover 1 leg. I only tanned my legs as I don't ever tan my whole body.
The tanner comes out in a foam consistency. It is very light weighted and easy to blend. Pumping and applying the product, there was very little too no smell at all which is amazing because I hate smelling like fake tan.
I found this is a gradual tanner, so watch out how much you actually use. You can go over your tan again for a more intense tan. I didn't do this. After about 2 hours, I had to go out so I had a shower (On the bottle it says to wait 3+ hours) and dried the tanned areas. There wasn't any waterlines or patches. When my Partner came home from work his noticed a difference and his words "the sun wasn't out today, how did you get that tan?" after explaining about the tanner he said it look very natural.
The finishing look was a olive brown natural tone. I liked this product, and it will probably replace my other tanner I use as its super easy to blend out and doesn't have a scent. The tan went strong for about 4 – 5 days before it starting fading away. No patches were noticed during the fading process.
