Is This For Real? "Fake Tan Tights" Promise To Tan Your Legs While You Wear Them

Large Editorial Image


February 16, 2012

The UK’s Daily Mail reports a brilliant scientific breakthrough: Tights that tan your legs while you wear them! This sounds like a good idea … sort of.

Skin Kiss Fake Tan Tights claim that after just two hours of use, your legs will be “perfectly” tanned thanks to a combination of “DHA, Aloa, and Erythrulose” (whatever you say). What’s more, they say that the tights can also make you skinnier — after wearing the tights every day for three weeks, users reportedly saw “a 2 cm reduction” in thigh diameter.

We were a bit skeptical of this idea from the get-go, and then we saw the “promotional” images for the tan-tastic tights. When a product’s advertising looks this bad, it gives one little confidence in the goods themselves. Before: Yellow; After: Orange!

Do you think these Fake Tan Tights can do what they say? If you’re willing to take the risk of winding up with Cheetos for legs, you can test them out for $11.84 a pair from TightsPlease.co.uk.
