An easy home-tanning with added beauty benefits.
You have to have quite a bit of faith to trust yourself with tanning at home, but going to the salon is costly and something I don’t always have the time for. So I was thrilled when I discovered Urban Tan’s luxurious ‘tan at home’ range and couldn’t wait to test their claim of bringing the ‘salon look to your home’.
I trialled the sunless tanning cream in the Fair Maiden shade, because I am one! Though a mitt wasn’t included, I used my own for peace of mind that I would definitely get an even coverage – although, the instant tan colour guide ensures a streak free application and I achieved an even golden-bronze coverage with ease! What’s more, there was no nasty fake tan smell and the colour lasted as it took around 6-8 hours to fully develop.
But what really sets this tanning cream apart are the beauty ingredients within it. The Co-Enzyme Q10 and Wakame extract are anti-aging as well as firming agents. And with added caffeine, which can repair skin and help cellulite, this product is extra special. Not only is it a beauty + tanning treatment, but all Urban Tan products are 100% vegan, cruelty free, paraben, gluten and nut free.
The tanning cream, which is available in a Dark Diva shade, is £18.99 and the range also includes other products. The Glamour Grit is an oil-free scrub enriched with Vitamin E, green tea, sea kelp and algae for smoother skin and rejuvenation. And for a more subtle tan you can get the Glamour Gloss, a daily gradual tanning moisturiser with vitamin E and Matrixyl Synthe 6, which has advanced anti-aging properties and skin softening silk proteins.
