Made in Ireland: Rockstar Tan

That travel size came in very handy when coming away with me this weekend!

Rockstar Tan, created by former Fair City actress Rachel Kavanagh, has been raking in awards across the board. I was offered the chance to find out why and, as a self tanning novice, took the easy option with Fame, the brand's Instant Mineral Wash Off Tan.

Fame is a mineral tan that, like all products in the Rockstar range,  is suitable for both the face and body and made with natural, organic and skin nurturing ingredients. This weekend's wedding was the perfect chance to put it through its paces.
Despite squeezing out alarmingly dark, it gives a lovely medium tan that looked natural and, using the Rockstar Tanning Mitt, was exceptionally easy to apply: slapdash is my middle name, and I ended up with an even, streak free finish. It's water resistant and stayed put until I washed it off with soap the next morning.

The only downside was that I noticed a little bit of colour transfer to the inside of my dress - it was perhaps more obvious because I was wearing a pale colour. But the outfit was heading to the dry cleaners anyway and when it came back, there was no sign of the tan.
