Fake tan is a mainstay of any Aussie girl’s beauty routine, so when we find that there’s an all-natural option that retails for less than $30 and is ranked as Amazon’s best-selling self-tanner with over 3000 five-star reviews, we feel it’s our public duty to share the good news.
The tanning product in question is Beauty by Earth’s Self-Tanner tanning lotion, which promises a gradual sun-kissed glow (no Oompa Loompas here) that’s free from streaks, blotches and dark spots. Plus, it’s vegan, cruelty-free and all-natural. Unfortunately, it's currently unavailable on Australian Amazon but the U.S site is fully stocked and ships to Australia. Phew.
With a formula packed full of great natural ingredients like organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, and nutritive Japanese green tea, it’s not hard to see why people have been raving about the lotion and awarding it with five-star reviews on Amazon:
“I've been using Beauty by Earth's self-tanner for almost four years. I think it's safe to say it's a staple product I can't live without - this is probably my tenth bottle of it! I'm a holistic esthetician and ingredients are incredibly important to me… Aside from the ingredients being the best, the color I get is incredible and I love that it's buildable if you want to get a darker tan.”
“I have really sensitive skin and can hardly use anything lotion-wise that won't end up irritating my skin. The color is great/natural, but noticeable. It smells way less than other self-tanners (that smell once it develops is there, but much less than other brands). It dries quickly, which is nice; it doesn't have an oily residue either… thanks for making such a great product that delivers on color and is safe for people and animals.”
“This is THE BEST self-tanner I have ever had the pleasure of using. Seriously, the fade is so gradual and smooth...honestly, it’s held up so well...I’m not even sure it faded much after the 3-4 days it’s been on so far. I’ve continued to moisturize every day with Cerave, and even used some Vaseline cocoa oil (which is an excellent addition to this stuff) to really make my skin glow, and I can’t...I just can’t.”
We mean, need we say more?
Can’t get enough of cult-favourite Amazon buys? This $7 mascara is like lash extensions in a tube.
