Night out planned but your legs looking whiter than a sheet? First date with an absolute hottie but you look as if you’ve just seen a ghost? Ah, thank heavens for the little bottles of faux-sunkissed goodness that have saved our souls on such occasions. Yeah, that’s right, we’re talking about fake tan, a beauty product that has fast become a necessity across the country.

So thank the fake tan gods for blessing our lives with two new offerings to add to our collection. Because you can never have too much of the stuff, right?


We’re super-excited by this new brand, which uses natural PETA-approved ingredients and nutrient-rich botanicals to help develop your tan faster and absorb deeper into your skin. All products contain the Minetan one hour express formula to speed up the process. You can tailor-make your tan simply by deciding when you shower. After a more natural glow? Shower after an hour. Leave it on for two hours to go darker. If you wanna fake a two-week hols in the Caribbean, leave it on for even longer.


The Colour Base collection allows you to customise your tan game to give you the best results ever. Minetan has replicated skin tones from across the globe, from Brazilian to European. Switching up your skin shade has never been so simple.


For those of you who aren’t afraid of the dark, you gotta try the Minetan Absolute Collection, which combines melanin-activating intensifiers, antioxidants and hydrating oils to give you a dark bronzed tan without drying out your skin. Go for the X40 for your darkest tan yet. All tans can be washed off after just one hour.


We’ve all gone crazy for coconut – in our hair, skin and makeup products. Now let us formally introduce you to the world’s first coconut water-based tan. It absorbs quickly to lock in moisture and soothe dry areas, which improve your skin’s overall texture and tone.


Not only do these tans look delicious, they smell it, too. Each mousse is infused with super-nourishing ingredients such as vitamin E, aloe vera and green tea extracts, which work to keep your skin in tip-top condition while giving you the tan of dreams. We can’t get over the ease of application (they glide on like a dream!), and we’re obsessed with each of the scents. Yep, we’ve got them all. Oh, and did we mention they’re 100% cruelty free? WIN, WIN.




If you’re off on your holidays soon (we’re counting down the days already), there’s one product you have to invest in. The Fox Tan is a luxe tanning oil that helps you achieve your darkest, hottest, baddest tan EVER, thanks to its exclusive ingredient, FoxComplex. The amino acid-charged ingredient stimulates your melanin production, meaning maximum results in the sun.

All you gotta do is use the Fox Tan Rapid Tanning Elixir every day three to five days before sun exposure to prepare the skin. This builds up your melanin levels to prepare your skin for the sun. Apply a high SPF before you hit your sunbed (skin safety first), then spray Fox Tan Rapid Tanning Mist evenly over skin. Reapply after swimming and long periods in the sun. WE’RE SO INTO IT.
