Who doesn't love beautiful bronzed skin? With busy lifestyles and last minute plans popping up, we don't all have time to take off on an overseas vacation or to sit and wait for a tan to develop. Sunescape has brought out a range of products that is absolutely perfect for the time poor and to give you that sunkissed glow in an instant.
Sunescape's Instant range also has a 24 Hour Tan that you can wash off, absolutely perfect if needing to bronze up for a special event. The whole range is also Paraben free ensuring you aren't putting any nasties on your skin.
Over the past few weeks I have trialled the range and can honestly say I absolutely adore them!
1. Sunescape Instant Self Tan Mousse - 'Week in Fiji' RRP $44.95
The Instant Self Tan Mousse contains coconut and avocado oils and super nourishing macadamia nut to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and helps the longevity of the tan. It also contains Kakadu Plum, Grape seed extract, Green Tea and Vitamin E to not only nourish but protect the skin.
The colour 'Week in Fiji' will give you a medium tan and I would recommend it for all skin types.
In terms of application I recommend ensuring your skin is prepped before applying the tan. Things to remember are:
- Always exfoliate skin prior to tanning
- If you have any dry areas like your elbows or knees you can also apply a small amount of Hydrating body butter to ensure the product doesn't grab.
Applying the product is made super easy for you by Sunescape's 'Luxe Self Tan Application Mit' I can easily say this is the most amazing mit I have ever used, it retails for only $14.95 and you can purchase it here: https://sunescape.com.au/shop/retail/tan/luxe-self-tan-application-mitt/.
The silky velvet mit has a thumb area to allow you to grip the mit on and gives a smooth application. It is also super easy to swap from left hand to right to ensure you can easily tan both sides of your body.
The tan gave an instant bronzed glow that was not sticky and dried within a few minutes. It can be washed off within approximately 4 hours but you can also not worry about it rubbing off on your clothes if you need to go straight out or have things you need to get done.
When it came to it wearing off, it did not go patchy or streaky, just faded out and did not dry out my skin either which was great.
If wanting a deeper tan there is also 'Month in Maui' which will give you a deeper bronzed finish.
2. Sunescape Instant Wash Off Mousse - 'Just for the night' RRP $24.95
Out of the whole range, my favourite! Not only does this product give you an instant glow, you can wash it off once you get home from your event. It gives an even and streak free tan that shows the colour right away so you are able to build it to be darker if you would like. It dries almost instantly and does not transfer onto clothing or feel sticky.
Application is once again made super easy with the Luxe Mit. I absolutely loved this product as it gives such a natural glow that if you are only wanting to tan your legs or arms it won't look unnatural. With any tanning product I always recommend exfoliating and also applying a small amount of body butter to any dry areas.
The best thing about this product is you can also use it as a top-up if your tan is wearing off also.
3. Sunescape Illuminating Body Tint - 'Mediterranean Nights' RRP $39.95
Illuminating body tint aka photoshop for the body. This creamy but sheer tint gives you an instant bronzed glow or will also enhance your tan. It looks absolutely beautiful on the arms and legs delivering a natural sheen finish. I used this product on the decolletage area also which makes your collar bones pop and just added such a nice natural glow.
For application, I tried both the mit and also just using my hands. I preferred using my hands as i found you could massage it in more to give a more natural finish (just make sure you wash your hands with soap and water after and avoid wearing any rings to ensure you don't get a streaky finish).
This product contains a bunch of hydrating ingredients such as Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil and Argan Oil so even if your skin is feeling a bit dry or just wanting a beautiful glow I highly recommend this product.
One more tip with this product, I trialled a small pea size amount on a buffer brush and lightly buffed it on the cheek bones for a natural bronzed highlight.
