As the weather gets warmer, it’s still safer to self-tan. Doing it yourself means you can embrace bronzed skin during December whilst sipping on a Costa, eating a Greggs sausage roll and Christmas shopping – all whilst knowing you’re looking after your skin.
If tanning is your thing then, you will probably already know about Isle of Paradise, especially since their viral moment on TikTok which caused the brand’s water refills to sell out at Sephora within 48 hours.
Not only are IoP body positive, but they also think about the earth – oh, and are vegan and cruelty-free. Their Glow Clear (£19.95) range has just been upgraded with an 81% less plastic refill pouch (£15.95) so you can do good and feel good. Once you’ve finished with the original bottle, head to Boots to buy the pouch which can then be poured into the OG bottle.
The Glow Clear mousse – like their classic mousse but clear – is full of skin-loving ingredients such as avocado, chai seed and coconut oils. The water-to-mousse formulation is super hydrating, and the clear mousse means no transferring onto anything. It also includes their very own special colour correcting complexes meaning that each shade will adapt to your own skin tone.
Will you be self-tanning this summer?
