Sun Labs ♡ Self Tanner

Hi Dolls
    So lately I've been OBSESSED with Sun labs self tanner now that fall is here, and I don't get quite as much sun. Its been really my go to product this last month. I don't put to much on my face as often as I put it on my body. The kit comes with 3 products. a exfoliate scrub, a self tanner, and a maintainer. Best of all they're ALL paraben free. When it comes to a lotion (that I put on my whole body) I try to look for a paraben free product considering you are apply it to more then just your face. I do find it very hard to find  products that don't have that nasty preservative in it so once I did I was very excited. I've tried so many different self tanners, and can finally say that I am pretty pleased with the results and will be repurchasing.

Product Description:
This sunless tanning system is a must try for anyone who likes to have a great tan all year round. This system is very easy to use.

First exfoliate your whole body with Exfoliating Body Gel to clean and revitalize skin.

Then apply Tan Maintainer Moisturizer on any dry area. This will keep your tan looking flawless. Then apply everyday to help maintain your tan.

Apply Sun Labs Dark Sunless Tanning Lotion all over body. This product is so gentle you can even use it on your face. It comes out a nice chocolate brown so you can see where it is being applied. This great tan will last 5 to 7 days. Apply every few days to get even a darker richer tan.

Sun Labs Beach Bag is a great gift with purchase.

This set includes:
1 in medium/dark/ultra dark Self-Tanning Lotion 8 oz
1 Exfoliating Body Scrub 8 oz
1 Tan Maintaining Moisturizing Lotion 8 oz
1 Exfoliating Net Sponge
1 Sun Labs Beach Bag (Gift with Purchase)

Overall its a great product, I really love how easy it is to apply, and how fast it dries. It is a lotion and the constancy is pretty ideal for a self tanner. The color is so dark therefore, it is very easy to see where you are applying it. I do suggest using a rubber glove when applying to your whole body because it does stain pretty quickly, or using a scrubber brush to brush the color off your hand immediately. The color is instant so you'll notice a significant difference in your skin just after the first use, and it will increase. I do apply this every other day. You are suppose to apply the maintainer the same day you apply the self tanner. (apply maintainer at night if you apply the tanner in the am and vise versa) It does have a little bit of a self tanner smell but nothing that awful. The tan does last a good week (unless you take a very hot shower) and in that case it doesn't last as long. The whole kit runs about $40 which is a great price considering everything included. I've used this for about a month and only put a dent in it so I would say this will be lasting me a pretty decent amount of time. For my face I do mix it with my moisturizer so that it doesn't clog my pores, and break me out.

  1. cool, i have not used tanner in forever. i use to get spray tanned all the time, but just stopped about 2 years ago. these products seem awesome and obviously must be great if your talking about them ;-)

  2. It's funny because the past couple days I have been watching youtube reviews and reading reviews on this brand of self tanner! I usually use St. Moriz self tanner and I really like it but it seems that it is getting harder to come by (I usually order it on E-bay). So I was looking for a really good (brown) self tanner that would be more accessible to purchase. Would you say that this self tanner would give a very dark tan color? That is what I am looking for. :)

  3. @Dani YES they do have dark and ultra dark. I got medium and it worked for me but I haven't been tanning to much at all lately so it worked perfect, but next time I'd go a little darker.

    @CottonCandy I use to get spray tans to but they get to be so inconvenient and don't last as long as I would want. :) xo

  4. Thanks for the review and pictures!:D

    I am naturally tan, so I don't really need tanning products but my sister, who is super pale, will enjoy this post.:D

  5. Thanks for the review! I am needing any color that I can get this time of year!! xox

    My new online store is now open! I would love for you to check it out! :)

  6. I need a good tanning cream; Im going on vacation in a couple weeks and I'm white as a ghost.

  7. I really like L'Oreal's sublime tanning gel. It gives a nice dark color but unfortunantly when it comes off it looks really patchy. I might have to look into this next time im in Sephora.

  8. I love it when people get together and share views.
    Great site, stick with it!
