Melvita Prosun Self-Tanning Gel-Cream

Description

The Prosun Gradual Self-Tanning Moisturizing Gel-Cream for Face & Body was rated 9/10 by Sunday Times Style - "...causing a frenzy-it gives a natural tan without the use of DHA, so no biscuity smell."
The Prosun self-tanner is a natural, DHA-free formula that moisturizes the skin and gives it a beautiful bronzed glow. It contains Erythrulose – an innovative, plant-based bronzing agent, derived from cane sugar, which gives a gradual and even tan. Erythrulose is combined with buriti, safflower, coconut and sunflower oils – true beauty oils with excellent nourishing and protective properties.
With its deliciously fresh, silky texture, the Prosun self-tanner hydrates, softens and protects the skin with every application, building up a gradual tan, and leaves behind the delicate scent of vanilla flower.
All year long, enjoy a beautifully bronzed face and body, and a natural-looking glow !
Effectiveness test results,:
• 83% say that it gives a natural-looking tan

Strongest points
Easy to use, gives a nice gradual colour to the skin with no patches
Weakest points
Scent is a little strong and biscuity
Summary
I have been using this gradual tan for a long time now and I feel this is one of the best gradual tanning cream I have ever used.

The only downside to this is it has a very strong biscuity smell to it a few hours after use, however this washes off easily enough the next day.

It was very easy to apply, did not stain my hands after washing them and had no streaks at all.

It gave me a natural all over tan after a few applications and when it started wearing off, it wasn't patchy or noticeable like some tans do.

The initial scent is quite fruity, however this doesn't last long.

Did not colour my sheets like a few have done so before.

Easy to apply and absorbed in a few hours, quite a long absorption.

Did not need loads of the product which was great, I have since swapped my regular gradual tan for this.

Highly recommend if you can put up smelling of biscuits.

Summary
I apologise for this late review. Truth be told I was actually scared to try this due to me being a self tanner phobe! I had visions of being orange and streaky and having that aroma of biscuits about me!

I was very wrong about this. It glides on like a body moisturiser, has a lovely vanilla fudge smell that when dry smells like another user put it "orange cream biscuits" It could be cloying for some though and they could consider making a fragrance free one also.

It made my skin super moisturised and i woke up streak free with a lovely hint of colour which I presume if you keep it up every night/day will darken nicely. I haven't yet tried it for more than two, but I am going to take the plunge this week.

The only downside of this product is the price tag. I'm not sure I could keep up £20-£22 for a bottle each time, but I love that it is all natural and I know what I'm putting on my body. I will see how long my tube lasts and update on my feelings about that.

I love this product.It smells gorgeous and absorbs really easily. It is also quite moisturising on my skin. I applied it for three nights until I got my desired result, and it lasted well. I got no streaks and was able to wear clothes quickly after applying it. I love the fact it is organic and not tested on animals.

The scent smells divine and it feels really creamy on the skin. It dries almost instantly so you can put clothes on pretty much straight after applying. It gives a streak-free tan and leaves the skin moisturised. I am really impressed with this gradual tan and it is by far one of the best smelling tans I have tried and it doesn't leave a strong fake tan odour after it has developed. It gives a golden tan which looks sun kissed and natural. It is really easy to apply and glides on the skin effortlessly because it is so creamy and silky. I also love that this product is natural and organic.
Weakest points
I think £22 is expensive for a gradual tan and even though I love it so much, I'm not sure that I would pay that amount.

I am absolutely thrilled with this self-tanner! Having been lucky enough to try many Melvita products I keep waiting for them to ‘trip up’ on a product. This simply does not happen. This product really is very, very good. The exciting part of the product is that it contains no DHA and for this I felt that Melvita had their work cut out for an effective DHA free self-tanning product. My thoughts were completely unfounded. Although my skin always reacts well and successfully to self-tanning products, I have always struggled to find a tanner that over time doesn’t dry out my skin and leave tan effect uneven and unsightly. This amazing product has completely eliminated the side effects of generic self-tan products.
The packaging of the Prosun is an attractive metallic bronze coloured soft squeeze tube, conducive to the product inside, we a practical flip top lid. It is easy to dispense the tanner without the risk of over application. The exciting part of the product is that it contains no DHA and for this I felt that Melvita had their work cut out for an effective DHA free self-tanning product. The golden rule when self-tanning is that you should always prepare your skin first. A good exfoliating product all over, preferably the day before tanning is a must especially concentrating on the roughest, driest areas of skin. This way you skin is a perfect receptacle for your product and it will not stain or gather in rough dry areas. Of course there is no such thing as a quick fix, rush job with self-tanning. You should always set aside a time to do this, unrushed and with care. Many tanning mishaps occur by rushing and not following the instructions properly.
The product itself is a gorgeous, medium consistency peachy, caramel coloured cream which dispenses from the tube beautifully. Upon application to my skin I found that the product simply glides on with a silky smooth texture, which for me was better quality than some generic moisturisers. The cream sinks into the skin immediately and is so easy to work across all areas of the body without any risk of missed parts. Exfoliating before application always ensures that the product with enter the skin as it should. Prosun states that it contains “Erythrulose – an innovative, plant-based bronzing agent, derived from cane sugar”. I was amazed at the scent of this product. None of the usual harsh, pungent scent that many self-tanners give. I admit, I failed to detect the vanilla scent in the product but it does have a wonderfully indulgent caramel scent which perhaps is conducive to the Erythrulse that is derived from cane sugar? The fragrance is quite strong but soon dissipates to a pleasant hint of fragrance after usage. Usually after using a self-tanner I am tempted to use a moisturiser on top but with Prosun my skin feels soft, supple, deeply moisturised and the effects last right through until my next shower. With so many oils packed into the ingredient list this is quite a powerful moisturiser as well as a tanner. I also noted that you can dress almost immediately after use as the product left none of the tell-tale, sticky residue after use. This for me is a HUGE plus!
The effects of tanning products are usually quite rapid for me and this was no exception. Overnight the product produced a significant natural tan both on my body and my facial area. It looks wonderfully natural and not a streak in sight. After a week of use my facial skin suffered no adverse effects and even around the eye area it caused no puffiness or irritation. I noted that I was able to reach my desired level of colour quickly and efficiently and after a week of daily applications, my skin has suffered no dryness or signs of a patchy tan. Many people have asked me if I have been on holiday? This for me is a testament to a good self-tan product. If other people think that your tan is natural then your product is working for you.
A week of usage has barely touched my tube as the product is so highly concentrated. I would not begrudge paying £20.00 for this product due to its high quality ingredients and long lasting tube. I am actually hard pushed to say that I have used anything of superior quality because, in short, I have not used a better product than this. With the added bonus of organic ingredients and no DHA, Melvita have ensured that you never need to expose your skin to harmful UVA & UVB again. A healthy natural glow from healthy natural ingredients makes this the most effective and easy to use self-tanning product that I have ever used. Excellent Melvita!!

I would love to try this self tanning moisturizing gel. Have to be very careful about being in the sun with my sun damaged skin so this sounds as though it would be ideal and give me some colour as well

Hi, I would love to test this product as it sounds amazing, a natural self-tanning product that moisturizes the skin with a lovely bronze glow. The fact it can be used for face and body saves buying separate products and to find a product that will leave no streaks is an added bonus.
