Skinny Tan Protect & Glow

The warmer weather is finally appearing and that means we can get our glow on!

I prefer to ditch the fake tan this time of year so my natural colour develops. Well, now I can do both! Skinny Tan‘s brand new range has all the benefits of a suncream, with the addition of a tan enhancer!

The Protect & Glow range comes with five star UVA protection with SPF 30 and 50. The team sent me both to try which come with a lotion and spray formula. Each product contains a low-level Gradual Tanner, so over time, it increases your natural colour.

I love multi-purpose products like this, especially when its something you use every day on holiday. Just think of the extra glow you’re going to have after a week?! So, of course, I was eager to try this and see the difference it made.

Both products are also enriched with Coconut oil and Vitamin E so your skin also feels nourished and smooth. Plus, you can just apply this with your hand and wash off after. There’s no worry of orange hands and its waterproof too!

After the sunny weather we had recently for the Easter holidays, this was the perfect opportunity to try them. I opted for the factor 30 spray and it soaked in really quickly. It sprays on as a white lotion but quickly blends in for invisible protection.

I wore this on my arms and chest for two days and applied it twice both times. The result? My skin didn’t feel dry and my arms have turned a lovely colour. My chest I’d say has gone one shade darker. A week later my skin still looked a nice colour without that ‘fake tan’ shade. Needless to say, I’d definitely be taking these away with me. I’d still wear other suncreams, but add this maybe twice a day to make it last longer.

Is Skinny Tan something you’d add to your suitcase?

    Great idea! Tan still looks natural but you look even darker 🙂 win win
