I don’t often do reviews, but the first 24 hours after I applied Eco Tan to my skin, I knew I had to share.
There are a few things I look for in a tanning product (not that I use it often, but when I do I have conditions, you know?!): it can’t smell horrific and it’s got to go on easily with minimum streaking issues.
I’m happy to report Eco Tan fits the bill in both categories. Not only is it made from natural products including cacao, herbs, flower and fruit extracts, but it is certified organic and cruelty-free. They also (where possible) use veggie ink and recycled products in their packaging. And on top of all that, it has a mild tan scent and is actually a luxurious moisturiser that is easily applied, settling into a golden tan over the next few hours.
The first time I tried it, I was flying to New Zealand and knew that night I would be stuck on a plane and its recycled air for three hours. If there’s anything guaranteed to drive me insane in a situation like that is if something smells too strongly. Even as I was applying it I thought “wait, don’t do it now you idiot!” but I couldn’t help myself. And apart from catching a whiff occasionally when I moved my arms, I didn’t smell a thing. And when I did, it was very mild indeed.
The next day as I was getting undressed to get in the shower, I practically glowed. I was sold! A cruelty-free, natural and organic tan that didn’t smell and is hard to streak? Yes please.
I also tried the tan before my weekend in the Whitsundays last week and I loved it.
All up I tried the Invisible Tan for once-over applications, and also the Organic Winter Skin, which is a moisturiser that produces a gradual tan. I also received the Exfoliant Glove which can be used with plain water, reducing the chemical impact on your skin, but I haven’t tried it yet.
So their ingredients are:
- Chamomile Flower Extract
- Avocado Oil
- Honeysuckle Flower Extract
- Rose Geranim Oil
- Grapeskin Extract
- Aloe Vera
And there are no:
- Propylene Glycol
- Animal Derivatives
- SD Alcohol
- Food Colouring or Artificial Dyes
- Harmful Chemicals
My kind of product!
