Aussie Bronze - Body Bronzer

Getting a tan in the UK is almost impossible. When it’s not raining it’s overcast, and of course when the sun shines, it’s midweek and we’re all inside working at our desks! At The Amazing Blog we wistfully long for that healthy looking tan, however with the erratic weather here, it’s highly unlikely we’ll get one. So, our search for summer sunless tanning products began. We recently met and got chatting to instant tanning brand Aussie Bronze at the NOPE exhibition, and couldn’t wait to try their Body Bronzer.

Aussie Bronze as the name suggests, hails from Australia. Sacha Roberts the founder, has developed a high-quality, toxin and DHA free instant organic fake tan. She couldn’t find any good safe chemical-free instant tanning products for her daughter’s young skin. Thus, the journey began and she set about creating her own instant tan. Aussie Bronze will guarantee you a natural glow and adapts to any skin tone. All made with water, sunflower oil, avocado oil, almond oil, vitamin E, Shea butter, titanium oxide, and other organic ingredients. We particularly liked the way it applies with the ease of a tinted moisturiser and is gentle enough for both face and body. This is definitely one of the better instant tans that we’ve used and will keep using! What better way to get a quick tan and avoiding all the drama and downtime waiting for one to develop.

We love that it is an ‘instant tan’, it’s just perfect for quickly applying to legs or face just when the sun comes out - this bank holiday weekend?. The product is vegan, and also cruelty, paraben, sulphate, petrochemical and PEGs free, keeping our skin healthy from the inside out. Aussie Bronze is 100% Australian and made with only natural ingredients.  All you have to do is shake the bottle, apply the product smoothing it over your body. Best of all is that it washes off at the end of the day.  Get your Aussie Bronze here 125ml for just £34.95.

Spray and Glow and Coconut Tanning Water by UTan

It won’t come as a shock to any of you that we are huge fans of sunless tanning treatments at The Amazing Blog. We would happily trek half way around the world if it meant we could get our hands on the perfect sun-kissed tan in a bottle. Luckily for us though we don’t have to, as UTan is a Scottish company making creating glows to rival the French Riviera. What’s more, UTan is the original and very first tanning brand to combine skin toning and firming properties into self-tan solutions, helping you look more toned and bronzed in one fell swoop.  Their products promise to leave you looking better and browner without a hint of orange.

All UTan products are organic, odour-free DHA and we were lucky enough to sample two of their fabulous self-tanning products. The first was UTan’s new Coconut Tanning Water for the face. This product is infused with real coconut extract and vitamins and, due to the lightweight formula, it is a refreshing mist that develops in a sun-kissed glow in 4-6 hours. This product is fantastic, it subtly and gradually changes the face until it is the colour you want it to be. Furthermore, the tanning water is a brilliant primer and base for makeup to be built upon helping to even out skin tone. The Spray Glow was the second UTan product we sampled, and let us tell you now; this will become a firm favourite in your summer cosmetics bag and an essential part of your skin care routine. Enriched with glycerine and vitamin E this nourishing moisture spray can be applied in less than 60 seconds. It is a perfect way to both boost and maintains natural tans. What more could you want?
