When war-time rationing was in place, some women would paint gravy browning on their legs to give the appearance of stockings.
Apparently it looked great but on hot days the smell of Sunday roasts could drive people crazy.
Today’s Big Deal on a Tantruth Full body Spray Tan means you can look deliciously tanned without prompting passers-by to wonder how long there is to go until lunchtime.
The Big Deal is with The Beauty Cellar which is smack bang in Glasgow city centre on West George Street. The salon is accessed via Brownns.
A trendy, modern salon staffed with experienced therapists, the salon specialises in waxing, threading and manicures as well as tanning.
Tantruth comes in two enticing shades light/medium and dark. The product contains a unique duo tanning system which works to give an even, streak-free and long lasting tan.
Among other ingredients, it features jojoba seed oil, avocado oil and shea butter which help leave skin smooth and glossy.
Tantruth also has a light, fresh fragrance which means that your sun-kissed skin is pleasantly scented.
Perfect for all over body use, the fast-drying formula can be airbrushed onto the skin in minutes and will develop between 2-6 hours.
Customers who have already used 5pm to book a treatment at The Beauty Cellar have been pleased with the results. Reviewing her experience of a spray tan, Sophie Guy wrote:
‘It doesn’t take very long and the girls are very professional and make sure you get a good coverage with no streaks or patches. I’ve had it on for 3 days not with no signs of it fading so I’m very pleased with it. I’ll definitely be back next time I want a tan.’ 4.25/5
