Today we’re discussing Tancream: the world’s first ever 3-in-1 SPF50, Self-Tan & Instant Bronzer. If you’re keen to learn more then continue reading below.
Who doesn’t love a sun-kissed tan all year round? Self-tanning products are forever changing in the beauty industry, from the classic body lotion, tanning mousse’s to the revolutionary tanning waters and drops, it’s clearly obvious the tanning market isn’t falling any time soon. In the past, I’ve had my fair share of experience using self-tanners, and while the majority gave my skin a luscious healthy bronzed glow for the first couple of days, I was soon left with a patchy, embarrassing mess that wasn’t a pretty sight to look at.
It’s problems like this that stop me from purchasing self-tanners, and because I work in a retail environment, dealing with customers on a daily basis, I can’t afford to look unprofessional in my workplace. I’ve never been a personal fan of sun-beds either, and although I may have experienced a one-off session, the concept and technology concerns me on how one can obtain such bronzed look from having a course of heated sessions from standing/laying down in the nude. It’s pretty scary to think about the long-term effects of using sun-beds and the possibilities of future health and skin problems.
After co-founder Gillian was diagnosed with severe skin cancer, it was a struggle for this lady to find an effective, sun-protecting product in the current market of lotions and potions. Gillian searched high and low for a product that provided a ray of colour, a long-lasting self tan that combined the protection of a sunscreen. So, founders Gillian & Katy decided to put matters in their own hands.
With a long vision to develop a unique sun cream that offered a multitude of instant and long-term skin benefits, Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft created tan-cream with the help from leading sun-care expert, Dr. Jack Ferguson. It took a total of two years to achieve a formulation that Gillian, Katy and Dr Ferguson were happy to place in consumers hands, a revolutionary formulation that allowed the skin to breathe with ease.
Tancream, an exceptional, premium face & body cream that combines instant bronzing, a gradual self-tan, and a 5 star UVA SPF50 sun protection. Yes, you heard it, there is finally a cream that offers all those benefits in one single application, we can stop dreaming and start discovering about this never before seen product.
What’s actually inside Tancream? Starting with Troxerutin, a powerhouse ingredient that offers anti-ageing, antioxidant protection and anti-inflammatory properties. Extracted from a Japanese plant, this flavonoid ingredient accelerates the natural DHA tanning process, giving your skin an illuminating, bronzed appearance. A photo-stable, five star UVA, blended with organic sunscreens provides free radical protection, perfect for when you’re living the city lifestyle where pollution is at its highest. There’s also a dose of moisturising power from Glycerin that helps lock-in moisture whilst preventing toxins from entering the skin.
We know exfoliating is important before applying any self-tanner, its the biggest number one rule to achieve an even, long-lasting tan, and Tancream founders Gillian & Katy 100% agree. Whilst showering, try to opt for a heavy-duty exfoliator that contains exfoliating acids, coffee grinds or sea salt, these will offer you the most thorough exfoliation in preparation for the tan-cream application.
Simply apply the cream to the face and body, blending into the skin using gentle, circular motions. As this is a cream and not a mousse, no tanning mitt is required for the application. However, a little tip from me to you: why not wear a pair of disposable gloves as a safety net, a precaution during application so the product doesn’t cling onto dry patches.
Instantly, you will achieve a lavish bronzed colour to the skin that acts as an important application guide, not the actual self-tanning colour, the self-tan colour develops evenly in the space of 3 to 4 hours during daylight hours. The cream itself dries down beautifully and rapidly without the common, sticky feel that some tanning products can leave behind. On bare skin, a subtle, bronze, kissed by the sun glow appeared from the self-tanning agent. It wasn’t dark or mucky in colour but offered a very realistic holiday tan, minus the post-holiday skin peeling.
Because of the SPF50, Tancream was designed to be applied morning or day, a cream that gave you an instant bronzing effect, the protection of a five-star suncream and a self-tan that time-released throughout the day.
Here are three top tips on how to achieve a flawless, natural-looking tan.
1. Do NOT forget the ears. Apply very little and you’re good to go.
2. Forget applying deodorant beforehand. Self-tanners and deodorant don’t mix so wait until Tancream is fully absorbed and dry.
3. Self-tanners are renowned to cling onto the knees, so make sure to fully moisturise those knobbly knees.
