TODAY’S BLOG POST COMING TO YOU LIVE FROM THE NORTHERN HEMPISPHERE! I hope you are all loving (a cold) life down-under, while I enjoy the sun, cocktails and SLEEP!!!

Today on the blog, I am reviewing ModelCo’s new tanning range – the Instant Tan Self-Tan Lotion and the Natural Tan Self-Tan Lotion. ModelCo recently announced two new self-tanning products that will tick every self-tanner’s dream checklist. They are easy to apply, affordable, look 100% natural, nourishing and they smell delicious! I have been a long-time user of ModelCo, so here’s what I think >

FT TIPS BEFORE WE GET STARTED: 1) moisturise like crazy in the days leading-up to your tan application – ideally, you should be doing this every day 2) hair removal – you should aim to do this at least 12 hours prior to your tan application 3) use a tanning mit to avoid oompa loompa hands (we’ve all been there!) 4) apply the tan in a reasonably quick circular motion and smooth out any patchy bits at the end. Remember: while these tans are instant, you do have plenty of time to spread and perfect – don’t stress! P.S I am definitely a mousse girl, only because I love how it absorbs into my skin and I find it easier to control.

INSTANT TAN Self-Tan is infused with antioxidants including Argan Oil, Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil. These added ingredients are fantastic for keeping your skin hydrated, yet strong in colour. While you might assume with added oils it may be greasy and slimey, but it’s the complete opposite! It is non-greasy, lightweight and glides onto your skin so evenly. This is an instant tan obviously, however, it does develop into a deeper colour over the next 4-6 hours. This is where you can try/test to determine your preferred colour.

This tan is coconut scented and absorbs quickly and effortlessly into your skin – streak-free! If you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does! This tan also contains Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter means INSTANT TAN Self-Tan will give you an incredibly moisturising and radiant self-tan.



NATURAL TAN Self-Tan is fresh and fabulous! This amazing new formula combines antioxidant rich Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Oil, Cocoa Butter, Goji Berries and Aloe Vera. It also contains a sugar based DHA, which will give you a fast-acting, rich colour that won’t dry out the skin. Free from PEGs, parabens, sulfates and synthetic colours or fragrances, NATURAL TAN Self-Tan Lotion is ideal for those with dry, sensitive or mature skin. It glides on like a body moisturiser and rubs evenly into the skin (don’t forget to use a mitt!). This product is slightly different as it’s a clear formulation, which means less washing and no orange bed sheets or stained collars! Haha, welcome to my world!
