Review: Rio Celebrity Airbrush Tanning

Happy weekend lovelies! Hope you're all having a good one. I've worked two night shifts and I'm not feeling too well, so I'm taking it easy this weekend and slowly making my way through revision for my last exam. While I'm having a wee break I've got a totally amazing product to share with you all, and it's perfect for this crappy "summer" weather we're having at the moment!

I was kindly sent the Rio Celebrity Airbrush Tanning* machine way back in December and I was really excited to try it out but I didn't really find the right opportunity to use it until last month. I've only ever used fake tan once before and though I really loved the results, I didn't think it would be something I'd want to do regularly - this machine may just have changed my mind about that!
Here's all of the kit included in the box: two bottles of airbrush spray tan solution, instructions, the pump, spray gun and all the cables to put it all together. Assembly is really easy following the step-by-step guide included in the box. It took me a matter of minutes to get the whole lot set up and ready to go.
There are a 3 different settings to create the airbrush tan look that you want. You can also control the flow of tan using the gun, so it's really great for getting just the perfect shade you're looking for. I personally just wanted a very subtle light tan the first time I tried it, so I used it on the Low setting. It's super easy to use, I just stood on a towel in my bathroom and let my boyfriend do it for me. It took roughly 15-20 minutes to do my whole body, including my face, and it dried really quickly too.
I took a sneaky photo after doing one leg. The tan takes up to 4 hours to develop properly into it's full colour, so to see such a lovely difference right after spraying is great. I was also really surprised about how little of the tanning solution I needed to cover my whole body. I think with two bottles I would be able to do quite a few applications before they ran out.
As you can hopefully see from the before and after photos above, it's really made a huge difference and I definitely achieved the subtle, natural looking tan that I was after. I was really worried that I'd end up looking tangoed but I really could not be more pleased with the results. The tan lasted for about a 5 days before it began to fade gradually. I highly recommend this machine for anyone who's after an easy way to achieve a beautiful naturally bronzed look from the comfort of your own home.

Rio Celebrity Airbrush Tanning* can be purchased from riobeauty.co.uk RRP £79.99

    1. Thanks lovely. It's so good, honestly I hate fake tan I've literally used it to do that one Lauren's Way review. But I think I might be converted. It's so easy to use and having a tan makes you feel great. I think a tan makes me look a tiny bit more well toned too! X

    1. I don't usually either, I've never been so impressed enough with a way of fake tanning that I'd consider using it regularly! x
