Introducing the Caribbean Tan Range

Good day my lovelies, today’s post is all about the Caribbean Tan range, as some of you might have seen I got a gorgeous press drop from the team over at Caribbean Tan & Cosmetix and it was filled to the brim with gorgeous self tan products.  I decided to do a series of posts on the Caribbean Tan range over the next couple of weeks because there is just so much to know and review. To kick this series off I’m going to introduce you to the brand and the products.

Caribbean Tan Range

Caribbean Tan brings us an innovative concept for the application of sunless tanning. Their application system promises to nearly eliminate all problems associated with self tan creams. No more streaky messes, orange palms, or dirty looking knees and elbows!  The products contain DHA (Dihydroxyacetone – natural sugar cane derivitive) and when applied to the skin, it causes a chemical reaction to produce a tan similar the sun, without the UVA and UVB damage.  Your tan can last up to two weeks when cared for correctly and the products are FDA approved!

They have a huge range of products that includes everything from prepping your skin to protecting your skin. The range is divided into products for: A – Fair Skin (burns easily, tans minimally) B – Medium Skin (tans gradually) C – Dark Skin (rarely burns, tans well)  and you can choose between two types of self tanning, instant and gradual. The instant tan products give an immediate tan and develops a long-lasting tan over 8 hours, the gradual products are clear and develops a tan over 8 hours.

      I want to invest in the sun protection goodies as soon as summer swings by, I love a good sun screen and if I look at how great the rest of the products are so far I can’t go wrong
