Sunkissed and golden: Get the perfect glow with Sunna

Summer… AKA tanning season.

There is nothing better than spending a day lounging by the pool and feeling that Vitamin D on your skin. Although I am currently in the process of getting a natural tan, a little help along the way is a must and every week I’ve been applying self tanner into my routine to fake my golden glow.

Now I’ve written about a few different self tanners on here but one of the ones I have been grabbing a lot lately have been from SunnaTan (formerly Organic Tan). SunnaTan is a Canadian company and is made with clean and functional ingredients. Each product has an ingredient list that breaks down whether an ingredient is organic, natural, or naturally derived. Their products are also vegan, sulfate free, paraben free, and cruelty-free.

The line has a variety of self-tanning products, in addition to teeth whitening items. If their line sounds familiar then you’ll also recognize them from the various Organic Tan spray tan locations across Canada.

Anyways, if you are looking for a great self tanner this summer, then here are some of my top picks.

Colour Me Dark Express Tanning Mousse + Tanning Mitt

You can never go wrong with a tanning mousse and their product is no exception.

The Colour Me Dark Express Tanning Mousse + Tanning Mitt (C$69) is a blend of organic and natural ingredients that work to extend the life of your spray tan or work alone to give you a gorgeous glow.

This mousse is formula with natural ingredients and will give you a gorgeous colour upon application. Over a few hours the colour will develop safely and gradually. Leave it on for three hours for a light colour, six hours for medium colour, and eight-plus hours for dark.

I like to apply this either in the morning after my shower (and then rinse off at night) or at night before bed (and rinse in the morning). I do find that it gives me a gorgeous perfect glow even after one application. Since it does have some colour to it, it’s nice to apply since you can see where you are applying it. In terms of tackiness, this one does dry down nicely after about half an hour or so, so you don’t feel like you are wearing it.

SunnaTan Gradual Tanning Lotion

In the days after using the tanning mousse, I like to apply the Gradual Tanning Lotion (C$32) to my body after my morning showers.

Typically when you apply tanner (or tan naturally), you want to make sure that your skin is hydrated since it will hold onto the tan longer. This lotion not only hydrates skin but it also gives you a subtle, gradual glow, thereby extending the life of your tan.

The formula contains hyaluronic acid, jojoba, and citrus essential oils, so not only is it super nourishing but it also smells amazing. The consistency of the lotion is really nice as well and I find it absorbs perfectly into the skin so you don’t feel like you are wearing a tanning product. I like to just apply it after my shower, lie around for five to 10 minutes in a robe and then get dressed. No rinse is needed for this one.

I highly recommend you pick up this product since I love how it works to keep your skin hydrated and also gives you a beautiful glow that you can build up day after day. It’s a great way to make your spray tan or mousse tanner last longer as well.

SunnaTan Keep Me Sunkissed Face Tan Water + Brush

Although you can use the other tanning products on the face, I prefer to use a dedicated facial tanning product and the Face Tan Water is the perfect item to do so.

Available as just the water itself (C$44) or as a set with the brush (C$59), this facial tanning water is a gentle mist that adds a warm and subtle glow to your face. The formula contains hyaluronic acid, witch hazel water, and red maple extract to nourish your skin, as well as protect it from aging. It also has a beautiful natural scent of vanilla fruit water which is really pleasant once you spray it on.

I like to spray this on as the last step in my skincare routine and then use the brush to lightly tap it into skin and make sure I got all the areas on my face. Even if you prefer to tan naturally, it’s best to keep your face covered from the sun, so this spray is a great product to pick up to add that sunkissed glow to your skin.

Keep Me Golden Self-Tanning Mist

Finally, so quick touch ups, or whenever you need a quick burst of tan, try out their Keep Me Golden Self-Tanning Mist (C$45).

This mist is their signature blend of SunnaTan ingredients, but in a spray formula which makes application more convenient and easier for travel. This spray is great for extending the life of your tan or for new application. Just spray the ultra-fine mist on your skin and watch it transform into a beautiful glow. It contains natural ingredients with a hint of shimmer, so it makes it perfect for the legs, shoulders, chest, face, etc.

This is a great product to pack for vacation since it’s a quick burst of tanner and gives you an instant glow. If you have any beach vacations, then I recommend throwing this in your luggage!

SunnaTan self tanning products

SunnaTan has a ton of other tanning products available and I recommend checking this line out. You can get it at various boutiques across Canada, but I recommend ordering direct from the website as they often run promos and deals.
