The transfer proof one

Bare by Vogue’s Clear Tan Water (€24.99)

This is a new addition to the much-loved tanning range from Vogue Williams. The soon-to-launch product provides a beautiful bronzed tan without the risk of transfer, thanks to its completely clear colour upon application. The water-based formula and its skin-loving ingredients ensure your skin is drenched in hydration, making the tan effortless to apply and easily glide across the skin. Wear this during the day and within 4-8 hours you’ll be greeted with a beautiful golden tan that doesn’t need to be rinsed off. It is lightweight, non-sticky and incredibly easy to use - meaning a streak-free application every time. The Clear Tan Water applies with no colour guide, then gradually develops into a natural looking tan. If applying a self-tanner without a guide colour sounds scary to you, rest easy as you’re still able to see where you’ve applied the product (and where you haven’t) because of the light sheen on the skin that will appear more glowy until it dries down.

The express one

Beautiedit Pristine (€34.99)

There has been a lot of chat on socials about the stunning brand Beautiedit and I am here to tell you that their Pristine tan is full of skin-loving ingredients. The second launch from the brand has been flying off the shelves with lots of Irish megafans. The brand has three products going from gradual to dark. Why is it special? Aloe vera is extracted from the leaves of the plant aloe. It can soothe skin and serve as an anti-inflammatory. Other ingredients consist of naturally derived products from plant-based extracts. Cocamidopropyl betaine is an organic compound derived from coconut oil that you can find in many of your organic skincare and hair care products. Other ingredients such as glycerin can help to improve moisture in the skin. Citric acid works by exfoliating the upper layer of dead skin cells to help clean pores, even skin tone and soften and smooth the skin.
