Santorini Sun Sunless Tanning Lotion

Being a fake tan klutz I'm scared of fake tanning. No matter how careful I am it either goes on all patchy or I have an allergic reaction and end up with dry, flaky skin. So when I received Santorini Sun to trial I was a little scared. Thankfully the weather was still cool when I first started testing it out, so I knew that I could wear jeans if I made a huge mess. Amazingly I haven't made a huge mess. I thought that my first test was a total fail but even that turned out well, which proves that Santorini Sun is klutz proof.

Santorini Sun is unique in that it is applied after moisturiser. However, a word of warning, don't do what I did on my first application and apply it immediately after moisturiser. Allow the moisturiser a few minutes to sink in and then apply. It comes in a spray bottle for easy application and is tinted so that you can see where you've applied the product.

After I apply this the tan develops over a few hours. Somehow every time I've used this my tan has come out looking natural and even, which continues to amaze me as I usually end up with splotches all over the place. Being very pale I love how natural looking and subtle Santorini Sun is. I apply it lightly over a few days to build up to the colour that I want. If you are more confident with fake tans you could apply the colour more heavily and only need one application.

I've taken a before photo to show how white my legs are and will be posting after photos next week when I manage to get a decent shot. 

Would I buy this? Yes, it's a lovely, easy to use product.

Active ingredients: DHA (derived from sugar beet), erthrulose (extends the life of your tan), allantoin (healing, soothing, and anti-irritating properties), aloe vera gel (a superb hydrator for dry skin), cecropia obtusa bark extract (an innovative local slimming and anti-cellulite ingredient, helps minimise fine lines and wrinkles), green tea extract (very soothing and moisturinzing, powerful antioxidant).


  1. I shall make a note of this as an easy to use tanner, but I think I'm still going to embrace the pale. I already spend too much time in the bathroom anyway! :)

  2. This product looks so nice!
