Those of you who have been following me for a while will already know that I am extremely pale. Most days I only look passable due to the wonders of makeup. Before I started wearing makeup was a different story, barely a day went by without someone asking me if I was feeling ok!
And then I discovered self-tanners.
They are some of the best inventions ever. If you can call them an invention? I don’t know! Either way, they do the job better than any bronzer can. And the best part is, self-tanners last for a few days.
I have tried many self-tanners, but the Beauty By Earth’s best selling Organic Self-Tanner completely blew me away. It easy to see why it’s a bestseller. It has all the advantages that a self-tanner should have, without any of the drawbacks.
Now that winter is upon us, it’s time to get the self-tanners out. Even those who tan easily from the sun can do with a little help during these colder months! And let’s remember, it’s a much healthier alternative to the sun. You won’t get any harmful UV rays with self-tanners.
Why you need this bestselling self-tanner
- You want a natural-looking tan
- You don’t want any harmful chemicals
- Organic products are important for you
- You want a product that applies evenly without blotchiness
- It’s very easy to apply
- Suitable for all skin types including sensitive
- You want your white sheets to stay white!
I already mentioned how this self-tanner has all the advantages that a self-tanner should have. And I wasn’t exaggerating, it seriously does. Now, where should I begin? There’s simply too much to mention!
For a while now I have been more conscious of the ingredients of the products I use. I am trying to be a healthier me, this means cutting out the bad stuff from my food as well as from my beauty regime. It’s a work in progress which will take time and I don’t know if I’ll ever get there, but using a few ‘healthier’ products is already an accomplishment. It’s products like this one that helps me get there quicker. Beauty By Earth’s Organic Self-Tanner is chemical-free, vegan and cruelty-free.
Beauty By Earth only uses natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and green tea. All of these ingredients are good for your skin and they will give you the added benefit of moisturising your skin too. It’s a much better feeling using products when you know they don’t have harmful ingredients.
On to the application. It applies like a dream! I always use gloves to apply tanner because obviously I don’t need the palms of my hands to be darker than the rest of my body. That would look kinda odd!
The self-tanner comes in a tube which is easy to use. The actual cream is different from most self-tanners because it’s white it and only changes colour on application. I love how easy it is to apply and the best part is that you won’t experience any creasing or blotchiness. It applies smoothly with even coverage.
The Beauty By Earth Organic Self-Tanner comes only in one shade, and this is not a mistake. The way to use this tanner is to apply it once and let it sink in. If by the next day it is still too light for you then you can repeat the process. Each application of the tanner makes your skin about 1 shade darker.
The lovely thing about this tanner is that it is for anyone and everyone due to its buildable nature. You can keep applying layers for a darker and more intense tan.
This is one of the only tanners on the market that works for pale skin. Most fake tans make me look orange after one use, this one though, made me look sunkissed. It gives the skin a natural tanned glow which gradually fades over time.
If this is your first time using a self-tanner then what you need to do is apply the self-tanner before you go to sleep and go for a shower in the morning so that you can wash off any excess. After you apply the tanner, wait a few minutes before you sit down or lie on your bed. The product does need to dry!
I found that when I showered in the morning barely any product washed off. This is because most of it gets absorbed into the skin. This shows the quality of the tanner, it really is far superior to most. Also, the tanner doesn’t transfer onto your sheets after applying it. This is another uncommon feature for a self-tanner and another reason to love it all the more!
A common downside to many tanners is that they have a strong ‘tanning’ smell. This puts many people off using self-tanner, including me! The good news is that the Beauty By Earth Organic Self-Tanner doesn’t smell as bad as others. In fact, it actually smells amazing when first using it, however it does develop the smell a little after use but it is much more manageable. And once you shower the smell disappears.
Tip to get your self-tan right
- Exfoliate your face before applying a fake tan. This will help to prevent any blotchiness or creasing. It will give the self-tanner a smooth surface which is very important with any fake tan.
- If you have open pores or you have shaved, it may be best to moisturise these areas prior to applying the tanner.
- Don’t shower or let the tan come into contact with water within 6-8 hours of using the product.
- Apply less product to your feet, knuckles, elbows and hands as these areas absorb more product than other areas.
You can’t really go wrong with Beauty By Earth’s Organic Self-Tanner. It does everything a self-tanner should do without many of the negative side effects.
