Baby B Browne, Self Tanning Lotion: Review

My name is Jennifer and I'm a fake tan addict! 
seriously nothing makes me feel happier healthier or skinnier than a bronzed glow on my skin
Every Thursday night I go through my little fake tan ritual 
Although it's a hassle at the time it's worth it in the morning.

Baby B Browne is a new fake tan to me. It was developed in 2011 by an Irish company 
They wanted to make a natural looking fake tan which didn't have that horrible biscuity smell we all know and love...

What they say:

The Baby B. Browne range is designed to react with your individual skin pigment to create a natural looking colour that is specific to you. All products comes with a guide colour for an easy and streak-free application, dry quickly and create an instantly natural looking and long lasting tan. Our self-tanning lotion is infused with vanilla extracts to create a deliciously fresh fragrance whilst our professional spray tan solutions are fragrance free; with Baby B. Browne products the dreaded self-tan smell is eliminated.

What I say:

First of all I like the packaging, clean and simple. 
I also like the fact that the pump swivels and locks rather than having a lid
I have a habit of losing lids and the product ends up all over my drawer so the fact that this locks is great!

I used a mitt to apply the tan and the guide colour helped as it's much easier to prevent streaking.
I left the tan to develop overnight, although the instructions do say that you can wash it off after 4-8 hours.

Now I can't believe I am actually about to say this but Baby B Browne 
It actually has a pleasant smell! I didn't think it was possible.
This is definitely a major selling point for me because I really do despise the normal fake tan smell.

One thing I will say is it doesn't dry extremely quickly
but I only ever put fake tan on when I'm not thinking about leaving the house
so it's not a big problem, I just had to wait a little while before putting clothes on.

When I showered it off in the morning I was left with a really nice natural colour 
It's not too dark just a natural glow. 
The directions also state that if you want a deeper colour re-apply after 12-24 hours.

I applied the lotion on Thursday, It's now Monday and I'm still really happy with the colour 
So I think one application is enough for me.


I really liked this tan 
I am a big fan of the colour and an even bigger fan of the smell!
I was also completely streak free which is always a bonus 

Baby B Browne is £14.95 for 250ml
and is available HERE

What's your favourite fake tan?
Or do you prefer the pale and interesting look?

  1. Great post!
    I just realised you're from Glasgow too!
    I'm still a big fan of the St Moritz tan in light since i'm so pale! Watt Brothers in town do loads of fake tans, half the price of Boots for the same thing!

  2. I am über pale all the time, may have to invest in this little product!

  3. I need to find the perfect self tanning lotion. Great review! :)

  4. I'm rubbish at applying self tan if I'm honest but I love the look of this. Your left with such a gorgeous colour.


  5. This looks fab, I was wondering what do you use for your face? The same tan as for your body? My face always ends up so much paler than the rest of my body because it's getting washed and scrubbed so much! What would you reccommend? Thanks :)
