Faux glow Friday: meet COOLA’s Sunless Tan Firming Lotion

It’s THAT time of the year when the layers start falling off, so if you’re not working with some kind of tanning product now then I suggest you get to it – stat! And, if you’re as rubbish as I am at applying most self-tanners then it’s high time you made a gradual tanner your friend – the best of the bunch are pretty much foolproof, and great for your skin to boot.
One I’ve recently fallen love with that is designed to “make you look like you just returned from a tropical yoga retreat” is COOLA’s Sunless Tan Firming Lotion, which little had me at the words “yoga retreat”.  A lightweight, fast absorbing formula that truly is “goof proof”, it gives a gentle, gradual glow while visibly sculpting and toning. 
Like many a COOLA product (one of my all-time favourite brands), it is Ecocert® Cosmos Organic Certified, which means it meets an international standard for organic and natural products that is designed to serve the best interests of the industry, its customers, and the environment. It is arguably the most rigorous cosmetic certification in the world, and when you use a product bearing its stamp you know they are processing and manufacturing in a way that is clean and respectful of human health and the environment. Go COOLA.
Sunless Tan Firming Lotion is formulated with 70 per cent plus certified organic ingredients, 99 per cent plus natural ingredients, caffeine for its firming and smoothing properties, vitamin rich Baobab oil and skin loving Shea butter. It’s also vegan and reef safe, the latter being an absolute essential for me when it comes to respecting the seas.
It’s amazingly transfer free so your clothes stay pristine, and you can use it often as you like – even as your daily body lotion to maintain a low-key tan year round. After exfoliating well I’ve been using it daily to build up a great colour akin to the one I had in Morocco just a few weeks’ ago, and now mixed with my favourite body moisturiser arsenal to keep things fresh. When things start to fade a little I’ll be back at it, guilt free! Oh and did I mention it has a Pina Colada fragrance, instead of the typical self-tanner scent? If that’s not enough to convince you that this is a winner then I don’t know what is!
This baby is available right now via coolasuncare.co.nz and at selected stockists, RRP $85.00 (and worth every cent).
