About these vegan fake tans

1. An express glow that lasts

If you want a golden tan that lasts and doesn’t compromise on quality, then our multi award-winning 3‐in‐1 Express Tanning Mousse is the best vegan fake tan for you. You just apply it onto your skin using our Applicator Mitt, then control the depth of your tan when you shower it off. We’d recommend waiting 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium golden bronze, and 3 hours for a deep dark tan.

Why you’ll glow with confidence:

  • You can personalise your tan, with a light, medium or dark finish
  • It creates fast, foolproof results that last all week
  • Its formula is quick‐drying, non‐sticky, and fades evenly
  • It is 100% clean, vegan‐friendly, and formulated with natural tanning actives

2. A no rinse tan in just 3 hours

For those of you who don’t have time to wait to take a shower but still want to build a tan that lasts, we’d suggest our Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel. Clear and lightweight, this refreshing, nonstick, and fast‐absorbing self tanner develops into a natural medium glow in just 3 hours. There’s no need to rinse it off and it won’t transfer onto your clothes!

We’d recommend it because:

  • It is easy to apply thanks to the new gel‐to‐water formula, and our Applicator Mitt creates a streak‐free finish you’ll love!
  • It provides up to 72 hours of hydration
  • It’s tropically scented, you don’t need to rinse it off and it won’t transfer
  • Infused with Hyaluronic Acid, it plumps, regenerates, and protects your skin
  • It has a 100% clean, vegan‐friendly formula that is infused with natural skincare actives

3. A gradual tan for soft, sunkissed skin
