OI VEY! Trust me I know the dilemmas of fake-tanning...and I don't even use it! My friends do and either I'm being summoned to the bathroom to help them before a night out or their poor defenceless boyfriend is. I'm LITERALLY now a professional applier (not really). So please just entertain me for a second in imagining my response when I was innocently scrolling through Instagram the other day and ModelCo had posted their latest innovation: A SELF-TAN BACK APPLICATOR!!!!!

I cried, I screamed and I poured myself a glass of wine (1 of them is a lie, you guess which) and then I tagged every Tom, Dick and Sally in the post to let them know that the days of me touching their back's was over. *starts singing Hallelujah* 

A must have for any at home self-tanner, the easy-to-use applicator mitt allows you to apply self-tan quickly and evenly to the back as well as those hard to reach areas.

Now here's how to do it thanks to the goddesses at ModelCo:

  1. Select your self-tan mousse, lotion or gel and place a small amount of your favourite self-tan product in the centre of the applicator on the velvet side.
  2. Place the applicator over your shoulder and hold onto the handles, one in each hand.
  3. Move the applicator from side to side and across the back of the body.
  4. Repeat as required until desired colour is applied.

Voila! A salon perfect all-over tan in no time. The Self-Tan Back Applicator can also be used to easily tan the legs or across the front of the body. Simply apply tan and use the same side-to-side motion as outlined above.

For optimum results, always apply your self-tan or bronzer to cleansed & exfoliated skin within one hour of showering and LEAVE YOUR FRIEND/BOYFRIEND ALONE.

p.s. It's only $14.00!
