The BeautyLab Peptide Tanning Lotion (*)
I’ve trialled and tested my fair share of gradual tanning moisturisers from the most popular to the little hidden gems but this one hits the nail on its head with everything I look for in a tanning product.
The BeautyLab Peptide Tanning Lotion is a deeply hydrating blend of cocoa, rose petal, passion flower, guava, melon and other gentle ingredients to create a natural golden streak free glow. Due to the unique blend of ingredients this tan smells incredible, a gingery lemon scent with hints of subtle kiwi/melon. On application a little goes a long way with this product which makes it perfect for those who require longevity as a 200ml bottle will last quite a while even with continuous use.
The formula is a non-tinted, medium consistency (not too thick nor too watery) which sinks into the skin quite quickly so there is no need to spend copious amounts of time trying to evenly spread over the skin and then wait for it to dry. The incredible formula is also created to be gentle on sensitive skin using a handful of natural ingredients that won’t irritate or dry out the skins surface.
The overall feel of the product on the skin is light and non-sticky, it’s almost as though you’ve done a cleanse, tone and moisturise routine on your whole body, leaving it feeling smooth, hydrated and fresh (which for a tanning product is pretty unique).
The product itself is buildable and due to its tan inducing peptides it leaves a light sun kissed look on the first application and then a medium bronze glow on the second application with no orange in site!
Although the tan itself is non tinted (which usually puts me off) the result of my first application (aside from the build-up on the sides of my palms due to being a little lazy and not removing the product properly) was streak free and looked noticeably more golden. It would also be the perfect gradual tanner for those who prefer to apply lotions and potions in the morning as the formula is not sticky and the citrus scent is unrecognizable as a tanning product!
