Doesn’t stain your sheets! - 24-05-2018 by

I love using fake tan but I cannot stand waking up with stained sheets.
This gradual fake tan smells amazing, looks amazing and best of all no nasty stained sheets.
The colour is light and natural, so easy to incorporate into your everyday routine. Love love love it. Worth every cent.

So easy to use! - 17-05-2018 by

This is a great tanner if you want to maintain a gradual/subtle tan all the time, or for a once off to add a bronzed glow. It is not as dark as your typical dark mouse tanners, however it is so easy to use and doesn't go streaky. You can use your hands to apply, and as long as you wash them, they don't stain your hands! You can use a few days in a row to build up a darker tan.

Will purchase again!

Yep.. It's pretty awesome! - 08-05-2018 by

When I saw the price tag, I was like "ummmm... That's pretty expensive, it better work" and sure enough, it did, and really well. It lasted a pretty long time as well. The smell is not over powering and tan is a nice color. I would be keen to try the drops you can just add to your every day moisturizer next!

This is my HG of fake tanners - 07-05-2018 by

I'm so in love with this tan. I love being able to put it on before bed and know that it's not going to leave colour guide on my sheets! I'm a very pale redhead with neutral undertones and this gives me a lovely light golden tan, no orange. I've had darker colour from other tans but I also tend to react to something in them and every few times I use them I get a rash, and I don't react to Tan-Luxe at all. I use mitts to apply and have never had trouble with streaking, though the lack of colour guide was a bit nerve wracking at first. I find it moisturises really nicely too and I only get a faint smell after having it on for a few hours, and also the next day. The bottle lasts a lot longer than I thought it would too. A bit pricey but I highly recommend it for a lovely natural tan!

Lovely tan - 27-03-2018 by

I have a fair complexion (Irish skin) and this day product gave me a lovely natural looking tan.
One application was all I needed and it lasted about a week.
It was a bit streaky at times but I think that was because I was rushing my application. Didn’t have an issue with putting on clothes straight after the application.
It is pricey but I think worth it.

I Stan This Tan - 06-02-2018 by

I bought this product after seeing it on the Adore Beauty instagram. I've been using Bondi Sands religiously over the years, and really sceptical of new tanning products after an unfortunate oompah loompah event. I thought it was time to switch it up, and spoil myself.
I first noticed the consistency of the product. It wasn't purely cream based like a lot of gradual tanners, but includes oils. It makes your skin feel so incredibly soft and hydrated, to the stage where I couldn't stop feeling my arms and legs, and would ask anyone within a 5 mile radius of me to do the same. They all agreed, that I was really weird. BUT soft
I had a few problems with streaking, but I put that down to user error and a rush job. Make sure you exfoliate, and moisturise elbows, ankles, and any other wobbly bits that get in the way of a perfect complexion. The colour was fantastic, and I only needed one application to achieve the desired result. It lasted around a week, and I used the ModelCo tan removal soap to get rid of any stubborn bits to start a new application.
I think it's something that will really grow on me, but it is a little stubborn when it clings to areas (particularly hands/fingers. No one likes an orange digit).

I’m not in love - 28-01-2018 by

After reading an article about how great this tanning product was, I had to try it.
Pros: it’s a milky like consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin without it being too oily, I am very fair and one application is the perfect colour without the need of going to get a spray tan, the colour is a lovely bronze colour without it being too yellow or orange on my pink tinged pale skin, a little goes a long way
Cons: I still think it smells! (Particularly the next day), it’s pricey
The pros outweigh the cons but I don’t get the hype. It definitely beats the drugstore gradual tanners out there but I would like to try the other products to see if it’s just this consistency that I don’t like. Tip: make sure you wash your hands after applying as like other tanners this will stain!

Amazing tanner! - 08-01-2018 by

Wow!...I received this product today and I am very, very impressed. I usually shy away from tanners because I have fair-ish skin and I have had bad experiences in the distant past where ended up with a day-glo orange hue instead of the desired sun-kissed look. However, I thought I'd give it a go because of the great reviews. This product is incredibly easy to use, smells amazing and gives a lovely tanned glow in an hour or so. A little bit seems to go quite a long way, so I imagine the bottle will last quite well. Couldn't be happier!

Excellent - 20-11-2017 by

Excellent gradual tanning cream !

Great gradual tanning lotion - 11-10-2017 by

This lotion absorbs quickly and leaves no streaks or marks. The change in colour is gradual but you do notice a difference almost after the first application. It does help to moisturise well before hand and really rub the lotion in well when applying.This is one of the best tanning lotions I've tried and it's really easy to use.

Gradual Tan MVP! - 12-09-2017 by

I like this a lot better than most of the other gradual tanners I've used. It's a lot easier to apply and dries within minutes, just have to be careful to apply evenly with mitts and not miss any spots because there will be lines if you're not careful, and wash your hands afterwards! Good thing is the tan develops when you go to bed and doesn't stain sheets and doesn't smell like fake tan the next day either. Has a nice caramel buttery smell. Tan looks natural :)

My holy grail tanner - 14-08-2017 by

This tan ticks all of the boxes for me in a tanner. It dries quickly (no slimey feeling!), applies evenly, has a natural, noticeable colour from one application, and I actually get compliments on the smell! I can even use it on my face with no breaking out. I wouldn't really consider this a gradual tanner, it gives me quite a noticeable colour with the first application.

Worth it - 01-12-2016 by

Usually I don't care much for gradual tanners - who can be bothered applying it every single day just to get some colour? However I found this product gave me noticeable colour after just one application, and a decent tan after two. It smells fantastic - no tan stink; the colour is excellent, it is a proper bronze colour that doesn't go yellow even if you apply it enough times to go quite dark. I also find it less drying than other fake tans I've used. So far I've been using it every other day for ~4 weeks and I still have 3/4 of the bottle left, so it seems to go a bit further and last longer than this sort of product usually does.
On the whole I am a massive Tan-Luxe fan and will repurchase both this and the Face drops.
