Good moisturiser

Good moisturiser but unsure whether it accelerates tan as i have asian skin and have no holiday tan at the moment!

Longer lasting tan!

I used this before I went away, during and after until the tube ran out. I have very fair skin but I have developed the best tan I've ever had and the only thing different is this product. I have used SPF 50 and 30 and turned a lovely colour which has lasted longer than usual. Recommend!

Tan accelerator

Really love this tan accelerator my skin can be sensitive to the sun and normally my natural tan can end up uneven and patchy however after using this my skin seems prepared and teady for the sun , my skin still feels soft no dry areas and I feel safer knowing my skin a little more protection from uv Rays , however you still must use spf and sun protection lotion whilst using this product . Great product to use just before a summer holiday as your tan will last that bit longer !

Really lovely product, and it does the job!

I used this product for a week before my holiday and almost forgot what it's purpose is - it is a really lovely moisturiser before you even think of the benefits for tanning. It is easy to apply and easily absorbed. You don't have to wait for hours for it to be absorbed either! I developed a lovely even tan on my holiday, and my tan has lasted as well. I'll definitely use this before all sun holidays now.

An absolute must for fair-skinned people!

I love this product, it's one of my favourite from Elemis. I'm fair-skinned, don't tan but absolutely love the sun. I always use this before a holiday. It stops me burning (obviously I also use sun cream, but this almost gives my skin an extra layer of protection). Last time I used it, my legs actually went vaguely brown! I won't go on holiday without this, because I worry I'll burn without it. PS - I use it on my body but not my face, I'm not brave enough as I have sensitive skin.
