When it comes to picking your self-tan formula, the options can seem endless. We’ve trialled and tested the market for the best foolproof tan. See our top picks and tricks to everything you need to know to be beautifully bronzed this summer.
ModelCo’s best selling TAN MOUSSE is back and even better with a new and improved formula and jumbo-sized bottle. Best suited for those with fair skin, this tanner leaves a natural to medium bronze glow. TAN MOUSSE contains an inbuilt bronzer to guide your application and a quick-drying formulation that won’t rub off onto clothing. Formulated without parabens, and enriched with skin-condiitoning Vitamin E and Aloe vera, TAN MOUSSE absorbs into the skin quickly delivering an instant bronze glow that continues to develop over 6-8 hours.
Promising a streak-free tan, this tanner is best-applied using ModelCo’s Blend Buffing Mit ($12.00). The reusable mit keeps hands clean and protected with a water-resistant barrier.
We are thrilled to announce the next generation tanner thanks to St. Tropez. Introducing the ultimate easy to use, no mess and no fuss, St. Tropez Gradual Tan in Shower Lotion. Delivering results in just three minutes, this has become the perfect solution for women on the go!
With a new specific formulation developed for in shower tanning, the 100% natural tanning agent is boosted with penetration enhancers and sweet almond oil moisturising complex. For the ultimate gorgeous faux glow, follow these steps:
- Fully cleanse and wash in a warm shower
- With the shower off, generously apply the product in curcular motions with your hands to wet skin to create an even coverage
- After application, wash hands concentrating on your palms, nails and fingers
- Leave for 3 minutes and fully rinse off with warm water.
We recommend using the Gradual Tan Lotion 2-3 times to achieve a natural sun kissed glow.
Those genetically blessed with sun kissed skin and wanting to stay dark all year around should pick up the St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse. This paraben free super-lightweight, velvety mousse delivers an ultra-even, deep bronzed tan. What we loved most about this tanner is the innovative Aromaguard™ fragrance technology that eliminated the telltale self tan aroma by a minimum of 70%.
Infused with conditioned aloe vera to condition and protect, this oil-free, fast-drying formula is idea for the entire body, including the face. What are you waiting for? Fake it don’t bake it this summer!
