A month or so ago, I was given the chance to try this incredible sunless spray tanner from TanOrganic, an Irish company that offers the first ever sunless tanning product made from 95% certified organic ingredients and is 100% natural. Created by one Irish woman’s quest for the most natural fake tan on the market, this has won many awards including the Irish Times Best Tan / Value Award for 2011. Check out what other awards they’ve won – here. It comes in a very sturdy glass spray bottle and each order right now comes with a free TanErase Ultimate Exfoliator, a tool used to remove the tanner from your skin. Also, they offer a Tanning Mitt (pictured below) you can purchase to help with the application of this sunless spray tanner, if you like. Personally, they didn’t send me one to use, so I just used those disposable latex gloves, but if you prefer to have your own dedicated tanning applicator mitt, theirs is decently priced.
Anyhow, on with the review! The texture of this spray is really very water, easily spreadable onto the skin and soaks right in with a bit of massaging. I actually find this to be a pretty fool proof product. Incredibly so, because I’ve tried many a drugstore fake tanner with disastrous results which is why I normally avoid a fake tan. They just make me look orange or, worse, dirty, but this one gives an amazingly realistic looking tan that I love!
First off, for application, I definitely recommend you either buy their tanning mitt or otherwise use some latex gloves to apply because it is a guarantee to stain your hands. That being said, it’s extremely easy to apply and you shouldn’t experience streaking at all as long as you spray an even layer thoroughly over your skin and massage it into your skin until it’s all soaked up. If you’re like me, prone to accidents and messes, you may want to consult their very helpful application demo video – here! It is also recommended that you apply it in circular motions, massaging it into the skin and then you have to wait 6-8 hours before rinsing it off. My advice – take a book or your laptop into the bathroom and hang out for a bit while you “tan” away. Once you’re done and all rinsed, be sure to use only gentle body and face washes as well as a lot of moisturizer to prolong the life of the tan.
All in all, this is a really great tan product!
I would actually go so far as to say this is THE BEST self tanning product I have ever tried.
It gives you a really natural and realistic looking tan without toxic or harmful ingredients and actually includes a lot of beneficial organic and natural ones – Aloe, Orange Peel, Hyaluronic Acid, and Ginger and Honey extracts among others which help to improve the skin’s condition while you achieve that perfect shade of Summer.
Plus, I really like that it comes out in a watery spray because its a lot easier to use than the mousse / cream / lotion varieties which seem to get onto every surface of my bathroom.
This is an especially awesome self tan product for those with fairer skin because it shows up. Often times, I’ve found that a lot of the self tanning products I’ve purchased in the past for “light” or “fair” tones just don’t show up at all and the “dark” tones make me look ridiculous. This one is just right and totally buildable if you’re on the darker side of things 😉 . I definitely recommend you check it out because it’s one of the safest ways to “tan” or even fake tan, is incredibly simple to use and has a lovely natural color for that Summer glow we all want without the damage.
