Dr Organic Moroccan Glow Medium Self Tan Mousse

It’s that time of year when I should already have a natural tan, but sadly the weather here in Lancashire hasn’t really been playing ball. As a result I’m still faking the tan, and at the moment it’s a natural based self tanner from Dr Organic which is helping me to achieve a golden glow in the absence of the summer sun!

Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals

I love having a subtle year round tan, but naturally don’t want to damage my skin in the process, which means for me achieving that glow is all about the fake tan and bronzer.

Of course regular bronzers just wash off at night however, taking that golden glow with them, that is until the tanning experts at Vita Liberata combined their tanning technology into the new Trystal Minerals Tanning Bronzer.

Faking It With TanTruth

We are gaining more and more knowledge about how dangerous and damaging to the skin the ultraviolet rays found in sunlight are, and with sun cancers on the increase people are beginning to shun the sunbed and get their tan out of a bottle instead. Although I love the feel of the sun on my skin and the sunkissed glow only a tan provides I won’t risk my long-term health, nor do I want to age prematurely, so I always wear a minimum SPF15 and as for my tan I fake it.

Fake tan has definitely become more sophisticated in recent years; gone is the orange look, replaced by tanners that self-adjust to the individual’s skin tone, the stereotypical fake tan has vanished from many, and there are so many formulas to chose from including mousses, lotions and even oils. From the palest skintones to the driest skins there is a tanner for everyone, but if you’re still a little nervous then the product i’m featuring today is one for you.

TanOrganic Tanning Oil

TanOrganic is an Irish brand I discovered when they featured in a You Beauty Discovery box last summer. I was introduced to, and instantly fell in love with, their deeply nourishing OilArganic body oil. Tanning however is where it’s at with this company with the founder Noelle O’Connor whose aim was the creation of a truly natural and organic tanning product, and that’s exactly what TanOrganic is – the world’s first and only ECO Certified self tanning brand.

Madame LA LA Tan

With the warmer weather still a couple of months away there are only two options if you want your skin to glow; either jetting off to sunnier climes or faking it. My preference of course would always be for the former but as I’m not a millionaire i’ll settle for the latter. I’ve been trying two very different fake tans over the last couple of weeks, both of which will feature in their own post, and the first i’m reviewing is from a new British-American skincare brand Madame LA LA.
