Why Isle Of Paradise Just Changed The Tanning Game

The brainchild of celebrity red carpet self-tanner Jules Von Hep, Isle of Paradise is a tanning brand with a major point of difference – at the root of the brand is an anti-bikini-ready sentiment, replaced with a healthy dose of ‘treat yo’self’ body positivity, and a unique colour correction technology. Oh, and it’s vegan, cruelty-free, and organic!

Everything about Isle of Paradise sees things done differently – namely the use of colour theory, and a unique technology which adapts to your skin, creating a custom tan and resulting in a bright, even skintone, and realistic tan. And the best part? You can wave goodbye to streaks, blotchy patches, sour scents, and stained bedsheets, for real…

Light/Peach

For paler skin tones that need a healthy, radiant glow and overall brightening, use peach. The formula contains OXY-glow Technology, which delivers oxygen to the skin’s surface to make it brighter. Choose from drops (put them into your night cream/body lotion), water (spray it on and blend it in), or mousse (apply old-school, with mitt).

Medium/Green

To hide inflammation, scarring, to cancel out pink undertones, and to achieve a warm, golden glow, use green. The pigments contain a complex which is clinically proven to reduce redness and inflammation. Choose from drops (put them into your night cream/body lotion), water (spray it on and blend it in), or mousse (apply old-school, with mitt).

Dark/Violet

For those who like a deep, dark tan, and are confident in their application skills, reach for violet. The magic ingredient is HyperViolet Complex, which hides yellow, orange, and ashy tones. Choose from drops (put them into your night cream/body lotion), water (spray it on and blend it in), or mousse (apply old school, with mitt).

Before & After

Like a primer for your makeup, but for your tan. Spray this on beforehand to balance the pH levels in your skin and ensure you get the best possible colour tan.

If your tan is fading and you want it gone in order to apply round number two, this self-tan remover will be a major gamechanger. It’s a cocktail of glycolic acid and micellar water, which exfoliates old tan away.

The Extras

For an on-demand wash of colour in emergency tan situations, this is ideal as it requires no rinsing and no waiting around for hours for it to sink in – the colour develops instantly.

Newbies to the tanning game should start with this. It’s a gradual tan that develops within 4-6 hours and can be built upon each day to create a luminous, sunkissed glow.
