We know when it comes to tanning, you find your brand, your colour, and your formula and you stick with it. Finding the perfect tan that works for you every time involves years of trying, testing, failing, and streaking. It takes something pretty special for you to change your glow.
But every so often a tanning brand comes along that shakes our beauty rituals to the core and we throw out the old to make room for the very special new. That brand is Tanologist. The world’s first vegan false tan to be dermatologically tested and approved, Tanologist’s range of formulas are here to help you find your glow, your way.
Founded by influencer, Lottie Tomlinson, the brand creates only vegan, cruelty free and non-comedogenic tans that won’t clog the pores but will instead nourish the skin with a signature blend of hydrating pink grapefruit, goji berry and juniper.
So, if you aren’t already obsessed, here are seven more reason why you need Tanologist in your Thursday tanning routine.
Self Tan Overnight Treatment
Any tanning pro will be well accustomed to the overnight ritual of letting your tan develop and ruining your bedsheets simultaneously, but with the Self Tan Overnight Treatment, your pillows will be safe from those nasty excess tan streaks. The gradual tanning oil is designed to not only give the face a fresh back from Bali glow, but works to hydrate, soften, and smooth the skin with pink grapefruit, goji berry and juniper. The non-comedogenic formula won’t clog the pores or cause breakouts and the more you apply, the deeper the tan by morning. Now that’s what we call beauty sleep.
Gradual Tan Lotion
Gradual tanning is the classic way to find your level of glow without needing to layer on the mousse or scrub at your skin when you’ve gone OTT. But if you’re going to incorporate a gradual tan into your daily beauty routine, you need one that’s going to give you more than just a sun kissed tan. Tanologist’s Gradual Tan Lotion is packed with super hydrating ingredients because we all know a hydrated tan is a glowing tan. With the brand’s signature pink grapefruit, goji berry, and juniper blend, the formula won’t clog the pores (bacne sufferers, this one’s for you) and has a fresh eucalyptus scent to hide that biscuity false tan smell. If you want to deepen your tan, mix with the Self-Tan Drops and keep glowing.
Self Tan Water
Self-tanning water is possibly one of the best things to happen to the lives of dedicated tanners for years. Ideal for lovers of crisp white bedsheets, clean white clothes and a glowing tan, the Self Tan Water is designed to be spritzed over the face and body for an all over glow, or to be worn as a setting spray over makeup for a gradual sun kissed tan. Developing in two hours, the express formula won’t clog the pores and infused pink grapefruit, goji berry, and juniper keep the skin hydrated and softened the skin. We love it when skincare and tanning come together.
Self Tan Mousse
No matter what formulas come along, for long-time tanners, tanning mousse will always be the queen of the glow up. But this Self Tan Mousse is no ordinary tanning mousse. Designed to develop in just two hours, the clear water-to-foam formula is here to not only give the skin a deep, bronzed glow, but to keep the skin hydrated, healthy, and soft with an infusion of pink grapefruit, goji berry, and juniper. With Tanologist’s signature non-comedogenic formula to keep the pores free of tan build-up, the mousse can be washed away after two hours or left on the skin overnight for a tan that is guaranteed to have people asking if you’ve been away.
Self Tan Drops
Here at BEAUTY BAY, we’re big, big fans of tanning drops. The easiest way to give the face and body a bronzed finish without having to pull out the tan mitt and put a towel down to protect the carpet, the Self Tan Drops can be mixed with skincare, makeup, or body care for an effortless bronzed finish. Packed with hydrating ingredients to keep the skin soft and bright, the clear formula won’t stain your sheets, ruin your clothes, or clog your pores so you can enjoy your glow without suffering the classic tanning consequences.
Self Tan Eraser + Primer
Everyone knows the worst part of the self-tanning process isn’t the streaks, or the dodgy fingers, or the bedsheets, or the smell; no, the worst part of tanning is trying to scrub away the stubborn patches around the ankles, knees, elbows and basically anywhere else. But Tanologist have given use yet another reason to be obsessed with them in the form of their Self Tan Eraser + Primer. The multi-tasking formula uses 3% glycolic acid to help wash away old tan while sloughing away dirt, oils, and dead skin cells so you have a perfect base for your next tanning ritual. Plus, the hydrating formula won’t leave your skin feeling stripped or tight, just fresh and cleansed.
Last but by no means least, it’s a beauty product that no seasoned tanner can live without, an instant tanning lotion. The Insta Glow is here for last minute plans, when you’re feeling a little down and need a pick-me-up-glow, and for those days when one layer of tan just won’t cut it. The instant lotion is designed to create that Insta filter effect by using light reflecting nanoparticles to create a subtle, soft-focus glow. Transfer-proof, water, and sweat resistant, the deep colour lasts for up to 24 hours without clogging the pores. We’ve already hauled three of these because it’s too good not to stock up on!
