Our own reviews of the Glove Your Body Self-Tanning Mitt (Part 2)
We know that the Glove Your Body Self Tanning Mitt is a great deal more expensive that your average self-tanning mitt.
If we're honest - we weren't sure when we first saw the product ourselves - "How much for a tanning mitt?!" But then we tried it, and fell in love with it!
We sent sample mitts around some of our sales assistants - all keen self-tanners - and asked them to anonymously give us their feedback on the product.
We've collected their replies and included them here. We want to be completely honest in letting you see their feedback, and there are some slightly negative comments that we've included as well - we want to be 100% impartial.
On the whole our staff who tried the Glove Your Body Self-Tanning Mitt loved it, and many have gone on to buy it for themselves and recommended it to family and friends. Here is the second set of responses (see Part 1 by clicking here)
"I tried the glove and found it went on really smoothly all over the body… apart from my hands.. I found the grip wasn’t the best with them round the fingers and ended up with dark knuckles. That was the only downside to the glove."
"a) Brilliant, stays on hand well, gives a even tan;
b) Have tried glove, well pleased with it, no streaks and good for left handed people like myself, great for moisturising as well, I would call it multi-purpose;
c) Great for smaller hands, fingers inside keeps mitt in place, tan goes on smoother, washes well"
"WE HAVE TRIED THE GLOVE YOUR BODY MITT AND FOUND IT VERY GOOD. IT DOESN'T USE A LOT OF PRODUCT AND LEAVES A STREAK FREE FINISH. IT GLIDES AROUND THE BODY AND THEREFORE DOESN'T LET THE PRODUCT BUILD UP ON THE KNEE AND ELBOW AREAS LIKE THE OTHER SMALL MITTS. THE PRODUCT ALSO DOESN'T SOAK THROUGH TO YOUR HANDS AND IS EASILY WASH BY MACHINE OR HAND. IT’S EASIER TO USE WITH THE FINGER INSERTS. IT'S A SOFT FABRIC AND HAS A LOVELY FEEL ON THE BODY. WE FEEL IS EASY TO USE AND ALSO VERY QUICK AS IT TAKES LESS TIME WITH THIS MITT. PEOPLE MAY FIND IT EXPENISVE BUT WE FEEL IT’S WORTH THE MONEY AS IT WOULD LAST A LONG TIME COMPARED TO THE OTHER MITTS."
"I have just used this mitt once and was truly impressed with it!!
I found that application was so much easier, it glided over my skin, I found that with a standard mitt it was rough/pulled at times.
I did like the finger sockets as the mitt fitted my hand so much better and that both sides could be used.
My tan had no streaks at all and I always end up with a streaky sections!
I would say I was unsure about this mitt at the start as it seemed bulky but I can truly say I really liked it and I have recommended it to all my family and friends who use tan.
This will be on my christmas list!"
"A really good product! The mitt applies the tan very evenly and does not cause any streaks. I have tried both mousse and lotion tans and both were applied equally well. I was worried the tan might absorb in like with foam mitts, but this was not the case. Extremely pleased with the product and I will definitely recommend it to all our customers!"
On the whole we were delighted with the responses from our keen self-tanners - most loved the product and many of them have since bought it for themselves to use!
There were a few negatives mentioned of course, and we're including these because it's our aim to be 100% honest with these reviews -
1) The Price. We know that this self-tanning mitt is expensive compared to other mitts. However - we've used it, and washed it, and tumble-dried it, and repeated this over and over a few times, and the Glove Your Body Mitt is still in perfect condition!
And you'll find that you use less of your tanning product with the mitt.
In both these ways you'll save a lot of money in the long run.
2) The only other major compaint we had was that the mitt is quite short when you are using the finger grips inside the mitt. We noticed this when using it ourselves - it doesn't completely cover your wrist.
However, most of us when we were using it were using the top of the mitt - where our fingers and hand would be - rather than down near our wrist. And, because the finger grips hold the mitt so well in your hand - it won't slide off and get self tan all over your hands.
In summary - we love this mitt, and we've found that most of our sales assistants who use self-tan regularly loved it to - so much so that they went and bought it for themselves! As with anything, not everyone will find it to their liking and we did have one or two slightly negative comments about the mitt. We feel though that the positives far outweight any negatives, and more than 9/10 of us didn't feel that there was anything wrong with it!
And, after selling hundreds of mitts in the month or so that we've had this item on our shelves, we're yet to have a customer come back to us with a complaint about it!
The mitt seems expensive, but try it and we believe you'll love it!
