Monoi oil moisturising tan accelerator with a tint lush !
Value for money
Ease of use
Treat your selves
Not cheap but lasts all summer on my legs to help them gain some colour, moisturising rich and helps pale redhead skin or any skin get colour with much less time in the sun! Good British brand and I have used this over ten years
Price may be too high for some, can die pale or white bra straps
Lovely effective paper product to maximise the suns rays in shortest time and good to put on instead of body moisturiser and body tint so it does save money it he end, elemis ingredients use the first pressed oils, the bes t, noscrimling here !
It works. It is moisturising so can be used in place of a body moisturiser before going into the sun. I did not go red after being in the sun, my tan looked a healthy colour and lasted longer than it used it prior to using this product.
Good value as it lasts for ages
You need to use for a couple of weeks before a holiday in the sun
A tan accelerator that works. Before I started using this I used to go red in the sun, burn easily and my tan faded quickly. Not any more. I rarely go bright red and my tan goes a more golden healthy colour and lasts longer. I don't peel afterwards as I continue to use the tan accelerator for a couple of weeks after my holiday.
It really does what it says
I am a huge fan of tan accelerators and this one by Elemis not only works but conditions your skin at the same time! For those of you that have not discovered tan accelerators yet they are fabulous and effective products. When you skin is exposed to natural sunlight it begins to push the natural melanin produced by the skin cells to the surface. It can normally take up to 3 days for this process to complete. In this time your skin is largely unprotected by the harmful sun’s rays and this is the point that most of us experience sunburn. Tan accelerators actually boost the melanin production in the skin and aids you to miss out the susceptible days when the skin is trying to protect itself naturally.
His tan accelerator by Elemis comes in a beautiful metallic gold soft squeeze tube with a silver lid. The product is a runny consistency cream which is a light beige colour. The scent is actually quite pleasant with extracts of Fragrant Tahitian Gardenia. It also contains Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut Oil and Jojoba to moisturise the skin and nourish the skin. I use this product daily for 4 weeks before my holidays, although Elemis states that you should begin 2 weeks before. Application is really easy and your skin absorbs the product beautifully. Your skin is left with a dewy glow with no traces of greasiness or sticky reside. It also leaves your skin beautifully soft, smooth and moisturized.
Once you reach your sunny destination you will find that you do not burn the way you normally would without treatment. This is of course providing you are sensible. This product does contain an SP4 but it is not designed to replace your normal high factor sun protection. This should be applied in conjunction with this product. I continue use throughout my holiday and on my return. In doing so this prolongs my tan dramatically in comparison to normal moisturizing.
If you have never tried a tan accelerator before I would highly recommend this product. It may not be the cheapest option but it contains no harsh chemicals or parabens and does a superior job of speeding up the tanning process without endangering your precious skin in the process
Beautiful light consistency cream with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut Oil and Jojoba to moisturize the skin. Contains Tyrosine to boost your skin’s natural melanin which protects your skin against burning. Pleasant scent. Prevents burning and skin irritation.
